So, recently IGN reviewed Fallout 3 and surely all of you read and ran to the stores after the glowing review it was given. Might wanna slow down as it seems that the story suffered a last minute change after being posted that took out some complaints. What was changed? According to site Neocrisis this:

Before: "Fallout 3 is such an engaging and fantastic experience that it's easy to overlook its few minor flaws, but they do exist and should be mentioned. With any game of this size and scope, you can likely expect a few bugs to slip through the testing process and that is the case here. I had the game crash a couple times. I, and other editors at IGN, have also experienced an annoying number of bugs on the PS3 version that have prevented the game from progressing or have broken the world. In all of these cases, reloading the game has been enough to fix the errors and nothing was frustrating or detrimental enough to give me thought of not recommending the game. However, there is one major issue with the PS3 version that can't be fixed with a reset. Every time anybody on your friends list signs on or sends you a message (or any time you receive any network notification), the game freezes and the screen blurs for a few seconds. If you have a lot of friends signing on and off all day, this will completely ruin the game. The only way to circumvent this is to either play offline or turn off notifications entirely."

With any game of this size and scope, you can likely expect a few bugs to slip through the testing process and that is the case here. I had the game crash a couple times, amongst other small bugs.

I don't know about you, but I'd have liked to have been informed that a version of the game is almost unplayable before I bought it. The article can be read here, but there's not much more to say. I'm certaintly not shocked that this happened as much as that it was so quickly caught.
