Skyrim Patch After Thanksgiving

The Bethesda Softworks Forums have word that patches for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim should come out the week after Thanksgiving, which is November 24 (thanks Gamer's Hell). Word is:

Wanted to let everyone know that the next PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 updates have been submitted for certification, and that the PC patch is coming too. The current estimate is that they will be live the week after Thanksgiving.

Blaming all errors on user is just as fucking stupid as overclocking to 4.6ghz then whining about crashes. The PC hardware platform has so many different combinations of hardware, drivers and software that there are bound to be problems even with the proliferation of middleware and higher level programming APIs in gaming. Most people are not educated enough to solve their own problems, many of which they don't even cause which in turns leads others to be snobby dicks about the whole thing. Congratulations, you don't crash, I don't either. That doesn't mean other people are doing something wrong if they see one. There are so many different variables involved that it's not even worth getting into it without all of the information. The whole looking down on other users about their machine configurations doesn't do our hobby any favours in the long run.

I like how you changed my "most" into "all" to suit your counterpoint.

Some games are more testy about drivers and such, this is true. And Bethesda games fall under that umbrella, from what I have seen and heard. To me though this is all the more reason to keep your gaming PC as clean as possible. I use a laptop for all my printing, scanning and other such things so that I have can keep my gaming PC super clean.

Not everyone has two computers of course, and maybe games should not be that sensitive, but in the end I think the core tenets are the point. Keep as clean a system as possible, don't introduce errors through overclocking and follow a reliable tech site's user guides. That formula has lead me to a decade or more of hassle-free PC gaming.
