Before the weekend I saved was about to quit but before I could the game just froze. Now today when I try to resume my game, it freezes withing the first minute and I'm forced to close it. --- Drink your milk!
I did some searching and apparently it's a common problem with autosave. I gave up on this game. I installed Operation Arrowhead and will give that a try later on and if I like that then come back to this. --- Drink your milk!
