Wow, the way they handle saves is horrible...

Just went to start my second character, but I don't even get new save slots? Why did they decide to limit saving so much...

12 slots and 3 auto-saves are plenty.

Not nearly enough for an rpg

and saves should be seperated between characters, not all lumped into one section.

I wouldn't say plenty tbh.

I usually have 25-30 and like to switch between characters. I can deal with the amount I've got, but I wouldn't say they were "plenty" as RPGs tend to buggy overall and I'd rather have lots of saves to revert to in a worst case scenario than backtracking.

Stand and deliver, that my hamster might have a better look at you.

Agreed TC.

I'm so used to RPG's with massive save files *coughSkyrimcough*, that the 12 or so was pretty annoying at first.

I'm one to usually save every few minutes and 12 is not nearly enough, especially in today's gaming age.

Regardless, I'll manage.

I'm a save addict and it definitely could be a bit better.

Per character? That makes no sense. There IS only one character to play with.

use hard drive for one character and cloud for the other

When he wrote per character he obviously meant per playthrough, i.e. starting over fromt he very beginning and taking a new Geralt through the story, maybe just to play through the other path, or maybe just to play on a higher difficulty.

And yes, I agree with the TC that there should have been more save slots.

How does that make no sense? They could label them character 1, character 2, or they could even ask for a name for the save slot. Just because you only play one person, doesn't mean he is the same character.
