Gamers claim The Pitt is “completely broken,” speak of “giant floating exclamation points”

Tuesday, 24th March 2009 12:00 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Gamers are claiming that Fallout 3 DLC the Pitt – released this morning – is suffering from some serious bugs.

“It’s completely broken,” said one, posted in this Nelson thread.

“Textures and graphics are glitchy and bugged. There are these box exclamation points all over The Pitt map. I think someone screwed up because it’s completely bugged out. It’s like not playable after the bridge because it freezes. If you manage to get past the bridge part you’re pretty much in glitch city. Good Luck.”

There are further reports on the official Bethesda forums of “giant floating exclamation points”. There’s an image here.

We’ve just put a call into Bethesda. Thanks, evilashchris.

    I’m worried about myself, because at first glance I thought that said “giant floating penis”, and it’s nothing like.

    Help me. :(

    As a playstation 3 gamer who traded in my 360 for a PS3 and always intended on buying a 360 again but realised why should I bother. I cant help but feel rather childish and thinking you deserved it but thats just me being a dick :D

  18. Psychotext

    Wait… so people deserve it because you bought a PS3. Run that one by us again? :P

    Yes, yes it is :)

    Silly sausages, though. Definitely sounds like the wrong build, especially with exclamation points O_o

    M$ probably made Bethesda release this, even though it wasn’t bug-free. You see, this is what happens when companies get desperate.

    troll out.

    @ Psychotext

    Thanks dude! That means so much to me!

    Oh yeah, almost forgot, fuck M$!
    I get 2 points for that right? Because of the “fuck” and “M$” combo right?

    Nelson himself just said that he’s sent an e-mail to Bethesda to see whats up with this. And someones saying that the Bethesda mods have said that its due to some files missing in the DLC.
