Corrupted Data Replay

 

 

Cordova, TN; January 18, in the year of our Lord 2016--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is bringing up an important issue that is becoming more of a problem in the video game industry. The issue is more video games being released that are buggy, that crash, and that destroy game saves. This is what we at Family Friendly Gaming have started to call corrupted data replay. Are these companies purposely destroying game saves to add replay value? We know companies will destroy video game hand helds and consoles if you make adjustments to it they disagree with. It would be like Ford never allowing your Focus to start again because you fine tuned the engine to your personal liking. Ford does not do that. So why do video game companies destroy your property? Where are the law suits punishing these companies for that draconian and unethical business practice?

As many of ya’ll know we went through and played Lego Dimensions. We have also been going through and playing with some different level packs, and fun packs. We are working in reviews of these as we have time. Recently while Lego Dimensions was auto-saving the game crashed. Lego Dimensions crashes all the time, so we thought nothing of it. Besides the fact that this is an expensive game that breaks down way too often. Well this time it corrupted the game save. No we do not pay Sony extra money to back up saves on the Cloud. So we are out those thirty-three hours. Warner Bros Home Entertainment and TT Games should be paying us for our lost time. To make matters worse we are not the only one this has happened to. We did some research and found there are others who have also had their save corrupted by the Lego Dimensions game. Who designs that bug? Do they think we will love and appreciate their games more when they crash so often?

This is not the first time a Lego game has crashed on us. In fact Lego video games are known throughout the industry as video games that break at the strangest times. We have also run into multiple Lego video games that lock up at the most inconvenient times. When will gamers get riled up about this? When will gamers expect solid game play experiences from these companies? When will families speak out and expect their valuable time and money to be properly respected by these sloppy companies? I had to settle down before I could write this because I was so angry a couple of days ago when this happened. I am still simmering from how horrible these companies treat us. We made them all that money, and we can stop buying their products until they clean up their act. Obviously that is the only thing that will get their attention.

{UPDATE 01/29/2016}: The PS4 has an option to back up your saves on an external device like an USB memory stick.


God bless,
