I hate games with only one continuous save

Post by S7 mrmiller on Mon Sep 19, 2011 8:49 pm

Why do they make games that only have on continuous save slot, and not multiple saves?!. Just started up dead island and my game freezes and will not load my save. My character is level 34 with 89% complete and 39 hours in! I was at the point were it was telling me "if you continue there is no turning back" and I was completing every side quest and had almost every dark green portion on all the maps cleared. This crap really pisses me off. I guess I'll try and gamefly it again later if there is some kind of patch, but I'm not doing it all over again from scratch.

I'm enjoying my PC dead island experience. I haven't made much progress but its fun so far.

That sh1t is the worst. I know it's just a game but it makes you feel so sh1tty. It's like when you've just spent an hour cooking, carry it through to the table and then drop it on your way.

Or 39 hours cooking just to have someone sh1t on it is more like it.

If you start a new game, you can choose what level to start on. So I can start at chapter 16 and it gives me a level 3 character. Of course I have no weapons and no mods, but at least I might be able to finish the game without starting completely from scratch. Still, it is going to take me hours to get some good mods and a weapon or two to even make it.

That sucks bro! But I bet you could join someone else game. Do a few mission and quit. Then reload your game. Might fix the bug, load you in a new location etc... Might be worth a try. I'm not quite that far but it sounds like OC is. You should try it out and see what happens.

Being a father and a husband I understand how valuable those 39 hours really were...that's a lot of "just one more story then daddy's gotta go" or "be there in a minute baby I just gotta finish this level."

You're better man than me 'cause knowing how much those 39 hours really cost, I would of chucked that game out the window.

On a side note, the same genius who put one continuous save in this game is probably best friends w/the guys who keep creating the same failed BF3 MP.

That is good thinking, try that.
I feel for you, I've been burnt by automate many times even with the additional save ability.

I tried to join a random online game and it still locked up. I might try one off of an invite whenever someone can send me one. On the other hand I created a new char and did a lot of running to complete the few side quests with the mods and weapons I like. So I might be on my way to finish it now, though not in the fashion I wanted to do with nearly 100% of the game complete.

I was able to power back through it and completed the game today. I'm completely impressed with it, on helluva game. I'm on the fence if I should send it back to gamefly, or keep it and run co-op. I really want to get Rage, so I might send it back or up my sub to two games.
