Skyrim 1.2 patch adds resistance bugs

The notoriously buggy launch of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was mended somewhat by the 1.2 patch, but reports from users claim that the patch introduced new glitches to the game. Most prevalent seems to be a bug with resistance effects, doling out full damage to special attacks no matter what protection you have.

A thread on the Bethesda forum (via Eurogamer) summarizes the common complaints post-1.2. In addition to the resistance effects, users claim that platform specific bugs like frame-rate issues and texture loading still persist. If you can find some humor in the situation, the forums also have multiple reports of dragons flying backwards.

Bethesda noted when announcing the patches that it wouldn't squash every bug, and the release on Monday promised that the company would keep an eye on forums for more reports.
