Will I lose my saves? I'm mostly worried about Dark Souls because I'm doing a special run right now that I don't think I'll finish before I build my new computer. It uses Game For Windows Live so I'd think it would have some sort of "cloud" saving, but I dunno.

The saves depend on the game, they aren't stored in some nice neat consistent location they will either be stored in the games steamapps\game\ folder, in My Documents\ or in your steam userdata folder, or some other weird arbitrary location that makes absolutely no sense (usually the first 3). That being said I believe that GFWL saves are tied to the account so when you re-login you'll regain everything but basically you might want to google the individual games before doing anything. |
