So I bought this game a few weeks back, and today I decided to go and back it up to the cloud since I'm moving to a new computer soon. However, when I went to back up the game, I found that the game was not in my list of downloaded games. Upon clicking install, I was given the prompt that it "needed to repair the game files" and I confirmed it. About two minutes into the install I paused it, unsure if repairing the files would overwrite my existing save. I'm about 30 hours in and REALLY don't want to lose my progress. I bought the game on the Microsoft Store on my pc, by the way. I did some digging to see if anyone else had this issue and discovered that the game has randomly uninstalled for other people too. In their case, the game had been deleted when they tried to cancel an update, which I may have done before (I don't remember it specifically, but that doesn't mean that it didn't happen). I need advice. Should I resinstall or wait? Thanks.
I got a solid 18 hours out of this game which is about 5 more than I got out of Bioshock Infinite (which was $60) so I'm satisfied. I made 2 or 3 characters to figure out how to play the game, then went with an elven ranger. When I died, at least half of my party was level 5, about 14-15 hours into the game. I was being pretty careful to sweep town centers for quests and thought I was handling what I was coming across pretty well, with one out of area exception I managed to run from (tons of drakes coming from the craters). After a short questline and a battle where I brought some research papers to the compass, I returned to town to find a bunch of clockwork golems of one kind or another had taken over the area. I thought I might be able to walk away from it, but doing so seemed too stupid and disingenuous to the spirit of the game, so I went in to the building and tried to clear it. My party had nothing that I could throw at them. Once I had a party member drop, I was stuck, because of course you know, no man gets left behind. I tried a number of different techniques to split up the enemy, but at the end, I was too low on spells and health and one isolated creature wiped my four remaining characters. So here are my problems with the game for hardcore: Can't retreat from areas during combat. Too many enemies have non-sense run speeds. Can't abandon a party member even when rescue is hopeless. Enemies can't be coaxed around the map AND NPCs won't move to help you. The combination is these silly, isolated battles within earshot of one another. All together, the play feels like I'm in a straight jacket. This game has about zero replay value because everything spawns the exact same way. That's all fine. I was having a ball. I just don't understand why you would bother with a hardcore setting at all when the game is clearly no set up for it without reading spoilers and running from urgent plot points. Like I said, I had a good time with the game. The 15 hours I played continuously with my character were good. I'm just not going to run at this thing again until I look up some mods or something to fix it. Have fun.
