Fallout: New Vegas 'Lonesome Road' DLC delayed

Reason for delay? They're removing bugs that make it unplayable like Dead Money or Honest Hearts...

I really want this, it will add so much to the main story. Sad to see this news.

Inevitable, their DLC always is delayed. It's not surprising.

Though why did they put LR's achievements up on Steam then? Jumped the gun a bit there I think.

Absolutely no suprise there. The effectiveness and quality of New Vegas DLCs have been quite poor. I mean they even released a patch to fix a patch! I hope Obsidian are never given to chance to touch Fallout again after the mess they've caused. Seriously every time they announce a DLC you know no to get your hopes up because they always delay it.

Since the latest patch, the game has been crashing every 5 minutes for me (On PC). It's unbearable, near enough every time I fast travel or enter a new cell it crashes. It wasn't even this bad last time I played it back in November. The worst thing is, I can't even rollback the update because its all automated through Steam. :cry:

Got the new dlc Old World Blues, havn't tried it out yet but the past 2 dlcs have been alright with me (pc) though i do sometimes have a weird glitch that prevents it from loading a save, must be some mod problems.

I know what you mean, it's not quite every 5 minutes but for me after a certain amount of time has elapsed it's usually going from inside to outside locations and it'll crash pretty much gauranteed. So I have to quick save every time before I go outside. It was never that bad before the latest update, and using the same mods. And that's another problem with Steams automatic updates, you can't pick and choose the ones you want if you have problems with the latest. Not a fan of that.

To be honest, after I've bought and finished LR to finish the story I'm done with New Vegas for good. Then it's hello Skyrim.

Every Obsidian project needs a publisher brave enough to lock the doors to the building, not letting the development staff out until they promise to fix all of the most glaring bugs in the game.

I mean, I know this generation is bad for developers not fixing or even finishing games before they release them, but Obsidian (and to a lesser extent, Bethesda) are something else entirely.

It's just one big fat glitch.
