Negative Effect 2
I’m feeling rather pissed off right now. There is currently an issue affecting PS3 users (not sure about other platforms – didn’t look) where the game save data gets corrupted. Profile and settings data is fine but any gameplay saves are showing as corrupt so if you load the game you get no load or resume options on the main menu.
This has happened twice. The first time round I was about an hour into the game so didn’t mind too much and I also figured it’s because I was running it via the back up manager rather than the original disc.
This time round, I’ve spent approximately 20 hours or more on it and racked up a lot of credits, weapons etc only to have lost it all.
It’s currently being looked into, but a patch is taking ages to be issued. More info here.
I was really getting into the game and the story and this has put a dampener on it big time. Needless to say, I ain’t playing it any more until this patch is released and there is confirmation that it actually resolves the issues fully.
Time to play something else in the meantime…
