Now, for the fun part. I start up the game again and it tries to log me in again, which I ignore, but then I realize that the game goes straight to a new game rather than letting me continue the one I used previously. Now, there isn't a save/load option anywhere, but since playing the day before always allowed me to continue from the last checkpoint (that option is there), I assumed the game just saves checkpoints automatically and you don't actually have to save the game separately. Wrong.
Apparently, if you don't log into Windows Live, YOU CANNOT SAVE THE GAME.
Granted, I should have read the pop-up more carefully, which does state this, but who the puts in a feature that you CAN'T SAVE A SINGLE PLAYER GAME WITHOUT BEING LOGGED INTO THE INTERNET/WINDOWS LIVE? I'm incredibly pissed off because if I want to get to where I was before, I have to replay 4-5 hours of a game. What fucking fun. \
I don't really know who is to blame for this, Eidos or Microsoft, but this is goddamn obscene.
