Skyrim update makes dragons FLY BACKWARDS
Magic mishaps, other glitches introduced by bug-fix
The highly anticipated The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim update rolled out this week and while it has fixed a number of known bugs, players are still reporting major setbacks with the game.
Developer Bethesda's update for Skyrim takes the game to version 1.2 and was supposed to fix various problems, including major lag and game freezes.
But it has also brought fresh issues, which fans posting on the Bethesda forums have been loudly grumbling about.
As you can see in the clip below, some dragons have started flying backwards. Other issues reported include magic spells no longer working, with resistance and enchanted items losing their power.
Frame-rate hiccups with the PS3 version are still prevalent too and the game continues to crash frequently for some. Bethesda says it is investigating these woes.
Sorry, Dragonborns, but for now you must fight through the obstacles and wait patiently for help to arrive. Another patch will probably be on the way soon.

I'm flying backwards for Xmas...
... Across the Irish Sea...
(With apologies to Spike Milligan!)
It's a great game, it's just a shame Beth suck at supporting their games (they never fixed major bugs in Oblivion for instance the vampire bug - PS3) so rely on their fans to sort out the issues, they claim it's a new engine, which is a lie, try using a Xonar soundcard on Oblivion/Fallout and you'll get CTD's, the same CTD's happen in Skyrim.
I dunno, I want to support the company because I enjoy the games, but on the other hand, should I really support a company that doesn't support it's loyal fanbase properly?
maybe it's a feature, dragon mk2
But isn't that two words?
