Sure, odds are, more bugs would survive a nuclear apocalypse than humans, but this is ridiculous.

Fallout: New Vegas would – if you’re asking us – easily be in the running for game of the year if it weren’t also at the head of the pack for glitchiest mess of the century. Fortunately, Bethesda and Obsidian are just about ready to apply some much-needed post-release polish to their post-apocalyptic product.

“We’ve wrapped up work on the Fallout: New Vegas patch and submitted it. Will let you know when it’s up on PS3, 360, and Steam,” reads an update on the Fallout Facebook page.

Best of all, this is the vaunted “comprehensive” patch Bethesda announced a month ago. Among other things, it’ll put a stop to the Xbox 360 version’s save glitches in addition to “a number of other issues being reported.”

So there’s your light at the end of the tunnel. Great beta, though, right? Now we just have to wait a little while and then we’ll be able to purchase the full vers… oh, wait.
