New features as well as bug fixes

Last month Bethesda revealed the latest planned patch for http://www.trueachievements.com/Skyrim-xbox-360.htm was currently in the beta testing stage. Not only did the patch contain another large list of bug fixes, but it also contained some new features such as new animations and improved visuals.

A trailer was even released showcasing some of the updates:

I still think oblivion was better. Too me it really seems like a realistic world where magic is happening and Skyrim seems more like a history chapter of a fictional world. The Dragons although buggy are very awesome but the entire story line was too cheesy / cliche. I was very suprised that the 'fighters guild' turned out to be the werewolf cult but the whole werewolve thing should have been processed better.
Anywho oblivion seems more like work that done. Hence I do not classify this game as a gem but like a real piece of art.

Hey keep spoilers to a minimum. Some people have yet to play the game, and would really appreciate if you didn't spoil a thing facepalm

@Aesop Blood - while I 100% agree with what you're saying, you can limit your exposure to spoilers by avoiding and not reading these comments for games that have been out a while. As an experienced spoiler dodger myself, I can totally recommend it. smile

Back on topic - Even though I have 1000/1000, I still intend to delve back in and do some of the non-achievement guilds and quests. It's lovely to see Bethesda is more interested in fixing bugs than releasing DLC. Bioware, please take note, I would have much preferred to import my Mass Effect 2 face rather than have the option of day 1 DLC to buy.

I wonder if they've fixed my "Waking Nightmare" quest yet. Doubt it. I love that they're still improving the game but I want some DLC! TAKE ME TO MORROWIND!

To be fair, that particular issue is because of EA's policy on always having DLC to include in the special edition

I'm glad i didnt buy this game on launch, because it seem that this game needed alot of bug fix to be fully playable.
I hate buying unfinished beta games which takes up to 1 year to fix.

Great to see the support we get from AAA titles.

Even with the bugs in the game it didn't make it unplayable for me. I never finished it though. To many other games on my list to do (mostly gears of war online). I figure when i do get back around to it most of the problems will be gone. And at least bethesda is still working to get it right.

I haven't touched Skyrim since I got all the achievements. I had to restart twice because of bugs. Good thing they're still patching things.
I'm probably bored right now.

Last week, Pete Hines, Bethesda's VP of PR and Marketing, said via twitter:

“Some things coming down the road in April for all you Rage and Skyrim fans. April is gonna have some cool news and surprises. Stay tuned.”

More info probably coming next week. smile
