My Wife and I spent many, many hours together adventuring through this game. We were quite leisurely in our play style. Too much so, it seems.
We ran into this horrific glitch (secondary animations freeze at a single frame. Dubbed "Abomb Glitch" or "Glitch of Doom") at around 500 hours(?!?!) and the game was unplayable from there on. We were heading to the "Shivering Isles" content and did not make it there.
Since then, I found word about this glitch online and discovered that although there was a fix available for the PC, and (I think) the PS3, there would be NO patch for the Xbox version due to the need to "patch save files", I think. Apparently this is a practice that Microsoft frowns upon.
We have not had the will to start another game in the meantime.
Now I see this 5th Anniversary Edition on the shelf at the gamestore.
Apparently none of the smaller DLC ( Horse Armor, Wizard Tower, etc.) are included.
Can anyone tell me if this awful glitch described above is patched up somehow?
If the glitch is not repaired, I am troubled that this edition was released in that condition. In fact, with the lack of a patch/fix for this problem and the fact that the DLC is not included, Bethesda is charging $30 this year for a game I could have purchased last year for $20 (new). I would be paying $10 extra for a Steelcase and some Skyrim promotional material.
If this is the case (no pun intended), I am very disappointed in what would seem to be a cynical exploitation of their fanbase.
Please tell me it has been fixed.
