Game development isn't easy, especially when you make a game for the PC platform, which is as varied as possible due to different configurations and runtime environments. That is why a lot of games receive patches from time to time, as testers don't have enough time to find out all the bugs present in one title.
After getting a patch a short while ago, Left 4 Dead has now received another one, as Valve got a lot of complaints from fans concerning the Versus mode, in which gamers fight against each other by playing as the Infected or Survivors. Other changes regarding the possibility to punch through walls or spawning errors have also been addressed.
But as Left 4 Dead was launched at the end of last year and received a few patches along the way, Sega's latest RTS (Real Time Strategy) title, Empire: Total War, has only been around for a few weeks and the patches seem to never end, as players keep finding more and more bugs and glitches in the game. Fortunately, it has also received a patch that will be available via Steam for all users to download it. Problems including the inability to Alt+Tab and the random crashes that people have reported have all been fixed, so players will now get a chance to enjoy the game, which has sold very well on the leading digital download services, Steam and Direct2Drive.
