Skyrim 1.2 Patch Creates New Problems, like Dragons Flying Backward

Watch this video:

That’s a dragon flying backwards, which is apparently a side effect of Skyrim‘s patch v1.2 on PS3. Folks are also reporting crashes after five minutes of play (like our buddy Jeff, playing on PC). And, finally, we’re told that character resistances against elements no longer work, and that folks are suffering full damage instead of reduced damage.

So this is kind of really bad, I think. Patch 1.2 was supposed to be the big one that made everything work right, but it seems to have only made new problems. What an anticlimax. Maybe the next patch will be better. Fingers crossed.

Totally had this issue, i’ve also found that most enemies have become super absurdly over powered… game worked fine for me before the patch, and is now effectively unplayable.
