Obsidian on Glitchy Games

An interview with Feargus Urquhart on NowGamer includes frank comments from the Obsidian CEO about the developer's reputation for buggy releases, though he oddly conflates bugs with enjoyment: "I think it's fair and unfair at the same time, because in the same conversation that I hear how buggy KOTOR and Alpha Protocol were, I also hear how great they were." He discusses this in relation to their last and next releases: "Now in the case of Fallout: New Vegas, we made a gigantic game, and I'm proud with what we were able to do but I wish it wasn't as glitchy when it came out. The criticisms people had are fair but it's difficult to get a game the size of New Vegas bug free. But that's an excuse and it doesn't matter when someone's paid $60 for a game. It's something we need to work on," he explains. "From the standpoint of Dungeon Siege III, we've been working very hard to make sure it doesn't happen again. We've been playing and playing and playing and playing to ensure it's of a high standard. On top of this, this is the first time we've got to use our own technology on something, which means we know where to find the bad bugs from the start!" Thanks PC Gamer.

I do not know what problems peeps are having with FO:NV, I have played this game a LOT lately (injured, cant work ) and i am a level 14, and I have yet to have a crash or broken quest.. All while running game at all sliders maxxed, 1920x1200, 8x AA... Solid 60 FPS (vsync on of course) Game runs like butter, and is fun to boot...

Wait till your level 35 at the final battle and a save game corruption from ~40-60 hours previous makes the game CTD whenever you zone in to the area the quest requires you to go to progress, despite all the precautions you take to avoid save game corruption from the bastard autosave/quicksave bug...

And all that love for the complex and wonderful game you have accrued is pissed out the window and replaced by a deep loathing.
