The lights are on
Capcom is urging players to be careful when downloading the title update patch for Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen. Some players have run into issues with corrupted save data.
Capcom is recommending that players make a backup of their saves in a separate location, or play the game offline until Capcom is able to sort out the issue.

It sucks that this is happening but at least they're getting the warning out fairly quick.
Good to Know. I will back up my save data prior to the download.
I'm so glad this didn't happen to my level 178 character. I would be beyond pissed.
it's nice they are telling people so early, but, sadly, i have a feeling their die-hard fans are likely getting the brunt of it.
I'm glad this didn't happen to my level 178. I'd be beyond raging.
Eh, I started over anyway.... I wasn't that far and I have never gotten to sit down and beat it anyway.
I'm happy Capcom got a warning out before it affected too many people.
Thanks, I´m still trying to find time to kill the last boss in bitterblack island XDXD I would hate having to start all over again.
I'll wait until this is sorted out before I pick up my copy.
Good to know.
Why is it that a game company can come out with an update and expect gamers to bow to their wishes when it doesn't work. Answer that?
Oh..... They fired the testing crew a few months before the update came out. They released the faulty game, and update, with bugs that their hired game testers "never seem to find". Then updated it with code that never seemed to get any amount of extensive testing.
I know, or at least I have a vague idea of how it works. Testers for a game make bottom of the barrel wages. Then when the game is done you're "laid off"; to find another game to test.That seems to be a given. I'm betting a lot of "testers" for a game are friends of people that work on development. If your, that friend of someone who doesn't have a major role in the development, are you going to tell your friend that it sucks balls? Your friend makes the character modals. What real role does he/she have in making major game/flaw changes?
Probably not, and nothing respectively, if anything of recent game releases is concerned.
I think that may have slightly something to do the housing and credit bubble that occurred a few years ago. Bankers and credit agents, surrounded by "teat" suckling yes men let housing loans go that were supposedly sure sales (no default). NOTHING IN THIS WORLD IS A SALE UNTIL THE LAST DOLLAR IS PAYED! Aside from that nonsense, the gaming community seems to be treated like that every day. A company can make a demo (we'll read advertisement; even though I've never considered a demo an advert-) and it may be great or terrible. It doesn't matter. As long as you employed "enough" game programmers/artists/testers your game will make bank. I have no idea how game companies, much less any business got this (newfangled entitlement) idea in their head, but they honestly need to check themselves before they wreck themselves. Unfortunately they'll wreck gaming for the rest of us as well.
