Given all the problems I’ve had with Test Drive Unlimited 2 on the Xbox 360, I’ve been watching this page pretty closely. Now, nearly two weeks after finishing the patch, there’s some news! Namely, that they hope to have some news soon. Microsoft’s long approval process is not an excuse for the patch taking so long. Instead, it’s the reason console games have to get it right from the get-go.
In other non-news, Bethesda’s latest word on a Fallout: New Vegas update is that it’s “coming soon”. Well, it was coming soon on February 7th, so it must be coming even sooner now. Several patches and months later, and I still can’t play that game without it freezing up so hard that I have to hit the power button to reset my 360.
I would also gripe about Killzone 3 if I cared one whit about the single player campaign, which grinds to a halt as soon as I get to a cutscene after the jungle mission. It’s as if my PS3 is trying to load something that simply won’t load. I let it run for literally a half-hour, the cutscene stuttering and freezing the whole time, and no luck. I guess I won’t be finding out what happens after the jungle mission! But the multiplayer works just fine, so they can take as much time as they want with their patch.
Consoles, man. It’s enough to make a guy think about playing games only on a PC.
