Here we are in the beginning of 2012 just after an exciting end of 2011. Skyrim fever has begun to subside and many have jumped onto that new crack known as Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR for short).
However, many PS3 owners have had some trouble all their own with the multiple game of the year winning Elder Scrolls sequel. It has been reported since shortly after the games release that PS3 owners have experienced a hefty amount of lag due to large save files and some other issues (but mainly large save files). It has gotten so bad for many players that the game itself became unplayable due to the issue, even after old saves were deleted. There are many YouTube videos on the absurdness of this obviously game dooming bug, just type in “Skyrim lag ps3″ or something of its equivalent.
Bethesda has took their sweet time trying to fix this particular problem; a problem that I’ll continue to hammer on because it has broken the game for those unlucky not that few. Yet, they have announced that the 1.4 patch coming here soon will indeed address these issues. While the last patch in December didn’t do much to help players experiencing this, Bethesda does promise that this one will. As can be seen from their reassuring response to people complaining about it being January and the game not being fixed yet.
Bethesda twitter response: “we’re addressing that in the 1.4 update planned for this month.”
Awesome right? Now PS3 owners can finally feel like everyone else who has invested a 100+ hours into the Skyrim world, and maybe they too can really understand why the arrow to the knee thing has become the international meme of obnoxious douchery.
