Assassin's Creed sob story :(

#1 Posted by Nate (705 posts) -

I got this game a few months ago, and I'm liking it quite a bit. Beautiful game, beautiful cities, it really looks great!
However, I recently lost my save game data for the second time. The first time I lost it I was about halfway through the game. The second time I was on the last mission!!!!! I'm so pissed and don't really feel like starting over AGAIN.  Anyone else have this issue? The problem was at a couple times when it usually saves (after you climb a tower, complete a mission, find a flag, etc.) it said "unable to save" or something to that effect.  Now it just says - save game file corrupted.
Is this a problem with my hard drive you think? I do have the Best Buy replacement plan, so maybe I should try to get a new hard drive. It would be free. Then again, if I did that I'd lose my save game data for my other games.  Advice or sympathy are welcome.  :)

If this is on the PC version is this not uncommon.

Man, I dont know how you could stomach that much A-Creed.

It could be a hard drive issue.

Nope - it's the 360 version.

Hmmm...did you try the usual stuff? Clearing the cache and whatnot?

I <3 Assassin's Creed. 

Anywho, I definitely think there's a problem with the hard drive.  You might want to try to research online and see if anyone else has reported a similar problem before deciding what to do next, though.

I just tried clearing the cache and that didn't work. Now the question is- do I trade in my hard drive and lose all my save game data? I suppose now would be a good time to do that considering the only game I'm really "in the middle of" of is Mass Effect. I'm also at the very end of Skate (last competition). Maybe I should quick try to beat that and then go trade in for a new hard drive.
