Bethesda fixes broken New Vegas patch

A recent update for Fallout: New Vegas broke the game for Xbox 360 owners, causing problems with save games

A recent Fallout: New Vegas patch made the game nigh-on unplayable for most Xbox 360 owners by causing problems with save games. The problem was so bad that Bethesda urged the 360-owning members of the community to decline the update when it was offered.

An updated entry on the Bethesda blog indicates that as of April 30, the problems have been resolved, and the update should be available for all platforms. The Xbox 360-specific issues have been fixed for English language versions of the game, with other territories to follow shortly. The patch itself includes a number of balance tweaks, which producer Jason Bergman outlines in this post.

Fallout: New Vegas has been riddled with bugs since its release, and there's probably plenty more for Bethesda and Obsidian to squash. Has the game's continued problems put any of you off investigating it altogether?

Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
