So, 4% in to Arkham City yesterday, decide today is going to be the big day where I crack on with it.

Load my save as normal, all good. At some point during the game I get asked to select my save location again. Ahhhha I think, time to use the cloud, so pointed it there. Played for about 6 hours, got about 35% of the way through (I'm a sucker for getting distracted by side missions, and playing on hard). Went to bed all happy and have now just fired it up again.

So I've got a 40k Batman file on the cloud, but when I load the game and select my save, all I have is my 4% save.

What am I missing here? If you cant switch your save location midgame, what happens if your internet connection drops?

I cant believe you have to manually upload your individual saves either. Where is the simple "synch my saves" button?

Pile of shit.

Cloud saving is so you can take your save to another console, there's fuck all to be gained from using it on only one machine.

So in answer to the first part of the thread title, "yes".

Aha, but I have the machine downstairs and the one in my bedroom (we're actually a three xbox household), hence me thinking I'd use the cloud...

Well I would say it's probably down to the game then, this is a game that eats saves on the 360 and PC without anyone asking in the first place and it's one released prior to the cloud saving too.
