So Haruto really is Haruka's kid and Yuta of all people is the father??? Sigh. I was so sure the kid was just someone Haruka rescued and trying to protect. I'm pretty bummed now. I was hoping we'd get some sort of flashback and we'd find out Haruka was doing something cool like training to be a bad ass like Uncle Kaz and just got herself caught up in something crazy. Instead she just getting knocked up by some random dude. I just had to pause the game to get that all out lol. Just left Onomichi on a boat.
The crash on startup and other issues in this scope are being investigated. As of now, if you haven't downloaded Patch 1.06 and start up Days Gone, you will remain with Patch 1.05 active. Updates to come."

This wasn't made for PC so I assume they test it on actual PS4s. Every single PS4 and X1 game I have ever played had update patches. I think when you have 80+ GB games with millions of downloads across 3 different system types (fat, slim, Pro) with different build types within those 3 you're going to get these types of things.
The game has only been out since last Friday and they're already patching buds which is a good thing in my opinion. We're never going to see a prefect working product for everyone on launch day on ANY game considering how big and variable these are. especially when you have to account for 4K on some machines, 1080p on others etc.
Some users experiences zero issues with this game, which shows you how varied a response you can get.
Since the Switch era began it's not uncommon for Nintendo developed games to have day one patches (Yoshi didn't have one and that surprised me, but then again the game was finished and available to pre-purchase on the eShop 3 months ahead of release). But most of their post-launch patches are usually so small that if you have auto updates enabled it's possible to not even notice that they had downloaded in the background. It's way different than the mess of a day one update Wii U had at launch.
It wasn't the first, but it was the first that wasn't a top down looter shooter. There were many diablo style loot games that were top down in that style where you shot guns. But Borderlands popularized the term, and brought it forward out of that old style of game. And it blew up from there.
I'm sure it's all fun and games in BL3 until they start incorporating microtransactions and loot boxes to get the really "good" gear and guns. I want to be excited for it, I truly do. I'm a big BL2 nut, but it's being published by 2K Games, a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive and last time I checked Strauss Zelnick did not stop liking money.
