    The most dreaded situation ever...

    Post by Seignar on Thu Aug 23, 2012 12:53 pm

    So I invest about 200+ Hours to Dark Souls with various PVP builds and some god-like characters. Guess what happens? I'm in the middle of PVP, I die and there is a quick power outage in the middle of my death which instantly turns my console off. I reload the console:

    "SAVE DATA is corrupted
    Would you like to create a new SAVE DATA?"





    Funny thing is I'm actually amused rather than completely frustrated with what just happened. Starting from 0 once again!

    I applaud you're equanimity. If it had happened to me the controller, the PS3 and the tele would have made a swift exit out the window in no particular order.

    My suggestion. Get ps plus, load your saves to the online storage. Or maybe get a external hard drive to keep saves on. But i am sorry for your lose. Best of luck to you. Im sure the community is awilling to help you regain your lost stuff. Msg me if you need anything. Nobody should suffer lose like that.

    Wow that sucks!

    That's the one bad thing about this game's save system, no sort of method to back anything up. I understand its intended to add to the challenging aspect of the game, but occasionally you might get screwed because of it.
