Corrupted save files...

It's been a while. But I remember I time when your save files would get routinely corrupted, whether it was because I was cheap and opted for third party storage or whether it was just issued with the software itself I can't remember. But I do remember that feeling, and I got it once again when I returned from Tokyo to pick up where I left off with Marcus and Dom in Gears of War 3.

Now, my colleague Gillen experienced something similar as he tried to import his progress from the review opportunity to his personal Xbox 360, but that's to be expected. That right there is highly volatile shit, that's not really meant for consumers anyway. My experience was something else.

As I came back, Xbox Live prompted me to update Gears of War 3 with what I assume was the day 1 patch. I did, and my save files went corrupted. Almost as if they were meant to. Now, it's not that terrible, I had just gotten a couple of acts into the campaign before I left, but replaying hours of a game when you just want to get on with and finish the fight. It plain sucks.

Oh well, I guess it gives me motivation to hit up a few friends for some co-op action. See ya on Sera!
