Fallout 3: Broken Steel Is Broken, too!

broken-steel-brokenThis is getting completely embarrassing for Bethesda: the latest Fallout 3: Broken Steel DLC is broken and doesn’t work at all! This piece of crap comes after huge problems with Fallout 3 crashes and bugs, as well as a broken The Pitt DLC… unfortunately, even though of high quality, Fallout 3 is plagued by these problems and they keep coming, making me consider that Bethesda is simply turning us into their own, personal toilet seat.

“Not a cryptographic message or the cryptographic message is not formatted correctly. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8009200D),” that’s the error you get if you try to install Broken Steel on your computer and, as hilarious and stupid as that might sound, Bethesda themselves say that they’re getting the same issue!

According to them, it has something to do with the Games for Windows Live DRM, meaning that it’s not even Bethesda’s job to fix the problem, but Microsoft’s: “We’re seeing the same error folks have reported, which is a Games for Windows Live DRM install error. Microsoft is working on fixing it, and we’ll let everyone know once we’ve verified it,” said Bethesda.

Even more, Xbox 360 owners who at first thought that they got away this time, are experiencing a bug that keeps them from activating Project Purity, and that’s most likely something PC owners will have to deal with as soon as the DRM thing is solved. Personally, I am disgusted with all the problems that surrounded this otherwise wonderful game, Fallout 3

a possible fix to all the crashes related to games for windows live which AFAIAC is the biggest piece of crapfest to hit pc’s, may be to install and use FOSE to launch the game, from my use of it it seems to disable GFWL and usually negated the problem entirely for me.
