People do some wierd things to thier comps, and for some odd reason, it's always the devs faults. Can they help it that it works good on the comps they use to create the game, but wont work on Joe Smoes comp considering he might have a completely different setup? Who knows what 'ol Joe has done to his rig?
Umm...the betas and demos?
Secondly, this is a good thing. A patch comming out so quickly means they are paying attention and getting right to fixing whatever problems there might be.
It'd be a better thing if this wasn't a problem that needed to be patched the night before the game was released, but rather something they caught before it went Gold.
How many times do you hear about this happening? Not many. If this was a common thing, then it'd be different.
I'm still very impressed with the game and definitely going to buy it, I just think it's somewhat sad that they missed so many things that the betas and demos should have revealed. What's the point of an open beta, otherwise?
