OMG! Level 15! - Level 15
Hey everybody! Did anyone here pick up Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood this week? Me too! Too bad I can't play it anymore...
I've encountered an extremely weird glitch in which I can't continue my single player story.
This is extremely outrageous. I've paid $60 for this game, and I can't even continue the story without resetting it. Now I know I'm not that far, but I'm scared I may run into something similar later on.
Which brings me to the topic of this blog: Glitches that get past developers, and patches making them lazy.
In the NES eras through the PS2 era, there were no patches for consoles. Developers had to make sure their game was as perfect as possible before releasing it. Nowadays, a single patch can fix anything, so developers seem to care less about what gets past them, and let the consumers essentially be the play testers.
It's ridiculous how developers try to rush games without finding most of the bugs, especially game-breaking ones.
Just look at this video from Fallout: New Vegas (Another game I recently got. I know, I have crappy luck.)
How does that even make it into the game? My (limited) knowledge of the game industry tells me that there are people getting payed to test these games, and to find these bugs. Are they just terrible at their jobs, or is there just less people testing them?
And I won't even mention the people who play these completely glitchy games without an internet connection...
So here's my demand to developers: Check your games!! I'm tired of seeing news stories of "This game breaking glitch" or "Bethesda addressing Fallout bugs" when they shouldn't even be there in the first place.
I know it's hard to catch certain things, but it's still disappointing to see so many glitches in a game. It just makes the developer look like they don't care about the game or its fans!
And please patch Assassin's Creed, Ubisoft. I really like it...
