Back in the day, I was a proud early adopter of the Gamecube. Underappreciated as it was, the GC never really got the third party support it deserved. That aside, one particular third party title I enjoyed to death was Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance. I bought it and my little brother and I played through it a couple times. It's really a fantastic game. We were super-stoked for the second game to come out (since the first ends on a huge cliffhanger), but due to the GC's piss-poor third party support, it never came. On top of that, but the game is relatively rare for PS2 (and to a lesser extent, for the xbox), and can be cost-prohibitive to acquire.
However, lo and behold, I found a copy of it for xbox for only 18 bucks a couple weeks ago. After years of waiting, we would finally get to enjoy the continuation of the story and bask in countless more hours of brilliant hack'n'slash fun. We loaded the disk up in my brother's 360 and went to work. We got about 4 hours in, and then decided to call it quits. The next day we fired the game back up, and found that none of the quests we had gotten completed marked themselves as being completed, and that we were stuck and could not progress in the game.
I'm pretty sure it has something to do with us playing an xbox game on the 360, but it's still pretty shitty to lose hours worth of progress due to a bug.
