    I decided to hold off on Shadows of Mordor for Xbox, and wait until I got around to getting a PS4. (PS4 won me this go-around over Xbox One. And I really didn’t want to switch).

    The nemesis system is supposedly gone, which is 90% of why I wanted to play it.Report

    I like how the first problem they totally know they’ve got to get on is “Arno falling through the ground.”

    I tried playing Assassin’s Creed once and found the interface too complex and difficult to do more than run and jump. But at least I didn’t fall through the ground.Report

      In Thief Gold you could fall to infinity, if you were enough of a playtester to find the open bit. It was beautiful,and hilarious,Report

      There was a glitch in the PC version of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas that almost made me destroy my computer. If you had used any GTA:SA mods whatsoever, you had to fish with a couple of the files. The result was that, if you were playing the regular game, and came to one of the last missions, Saint Mark’s Bistro, which involved flying to Liberty City. You’d fly there, get picked up, taken to the Bistro, and when you walked in you’d fall through the floor (along with several wise guys). After a long free fall (minutes!), you’d end up in the ocean impossibly far from any land (the map would show no land, and no amount of swimming would take you to land). Mission: not completed.Report

    Having finally beaten Dragon Age: Awakenings and Witch Hunt, I’m playing my way through all of the origin stories.

Dunno, but just in case…). Just the Dwarven Royalty story to go, and then I’ll move on to Dragon Age II just to witness the train wreck for myself.Report

    At least one of the “bugs” is just a developer’s prank (meant for inhouse laffs).
    You think devs like releasing buggy code? Thing is, folks still pay oodles of money
    for things that are buggy — and thus EA thinks they can wring every last hour
    from their devs day during crunch time, and things fall through the cracks.Report

    Civilization Beyond Earth. I need to step up the difficulty level. It’s pretty odd that in 3 playthroughs, only one time has war been declared on me through all of the playthroughs combines (okay two, but it was the same Civilization, trying and failing to recapture his old lost cities).Report
