The lights are on
State of Decay, the very successful Xbox Live Arcade game, send out its first patch recently, and it's causing some problems.
Basically, the issues that were supposed to be addressed by the patch (you can check out the patch notes here), are simply not being addressed. There was some kind of error with the patch, and while some people have been lucky and are reporting that the patch has been successful, the majority are still experiencing problems. Developer Undead Labs has identified the problem, however, and released a statement on the game's official message boards. You can check out part of the statement below.
"First, I want to apologize. This is not acceptable, and you deserve better than this.Second, we're on the phone with our publisher right now getting everyone mobilized. There's nothing we can do at UL to fix this problem. Once the update has been handed off, the process of getting it to you is something only the Xbox people can handle. So, we're calling in the troops to get going on solving this problem immediately.Third, although we can't directly fix the problem, you are OUR players, and we'd like you to know we're exploring ways to express our appreciation for your patience.In the meantime, see "first."I wanted to let you know what was going on as soon as we had it nailed down. We don't have an ETA on a solution (see "second"). Stay tuned for more information as we get it."

I could of guessed this. Before the patch I only had one glitch that I noticed. Namely zombies walking through walls. While the update was happening I was joking with myself that it was going to be a Skyrim update. This translated into an updated that fixes a few glitches but adds some to. Well calling it a Skyrim update absolutely jinxed it. Now no more zombies through walls but constant frame rate drops, pop ins, and more visual related bugs. State of Decay is still an amazing game in my opinion but man these new bugs are a tad annoying.
Apologies aside, this shouldn't have happened. I feel bad for the players playing this game.
At least the Sniper in the guard tower actually does his job now.
Well I'm glad they're doing there best, with what they can do.
