  1. I got the game and it would freeze like usual so I thought it was the disc and I got another one but after a while the game would start freezing again so I went to xbox and looked at a guid it told me to clear my cache so I did and now the game would freeze right before the update even come one and when I’m offline it would just freeze before even saying the copyrights and this is for xbox 360 and also the disc has like a thin small ring (half) by the edge of the disc. Is there anyway to fix it cause I really don’t want to buy another one.

  2. Dear Bethesda,

    I am currently finishing the ED-E My Love Quest, and am just now being contacted by Lorenzo via ED-E, Lorenzo introduces himself and begins to tell me to bring him ED-E, however, right then a voice with a spanish accent takes over and follows a similar script to the one displayed in the subtitles. after the dialog is over my character cannot move from his spot access the pip boy, weapons, or talk to anybody. The character can only rotate about as if this was a ‘cutscene’. I am playing on an X-box 360 elite and the game is up to date,
    here is a video of my problem submitted by another user
