Wow, I feel sorry for those with corruption. Especially that far in.

Wow, if I was 90% in and got a corrupt file, I'd be fuming. Having said that, the list of fixes isn't that exhaustive. With a few exceptions, it's actually been a very stable game for me. Sometimes the update list for a game just goes on and on... Looks like PC gamers had a few more issues to contend with though :S

I noticed the update last night. I wasn't getting these issues but now I am getting slowdown and screen tear in busier sections of the city. I'm not very far in so hopefully they truly have fixed the corruption bug before I do reach it.

I would be raging if my save file got corrupted at 90%. I've finished the game but didn't have any of the issues listed above though.

Wow these issues sound bad, they should of ironed these out before releasing it out to the public. I still haven't started the game as of yet, but hope that I wont encounter these game breaking bugs.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
