Probably Super Toy Cars. A buddy is trying to get me back into Destiny but I hate to let it swallow me up for the entire 4th quarter of 2015 like it did in 2014 Lol

I can't decide, so I've been spending all day moving my saves to the cloud. They are not all going to fit btw, bummer.

The Evil Within. That Akumu difficulty is kicking my butt.
I'd like to grind out the last 400 perfect attacks I need to complete Dragon Mania Legends but I don't know if I can suffer through the boredom of doing it, so it may not get completed today Lol

But, Kaens is talking about the moving of his X360 saves to the recently updated 2GB cloud storage for X360 games.

Logged on last night and found three episodes unlocked...a majority of the progress unsaved. This has actually been a regular thing for me with this console. I usually just go ahead and plan on doing things twice Lol Admittedly, I do play a LOT of trash for easy points, so it could easily be a problem on the dev side rather than MS/cloud/etc. Or it could even be something I'm doing or not doing. I don't really play enough anymore to worry about it too much. It's a mild annoyance in the scheme of things.

Well it's not the problem of the cloud because there is no versioning of your cloud saves. Either you have it or you don't, so you can't loose a level or two of progress.

Now, there IS a scenario where if you have multiple consoles and you are bouncing between you can run into problems because they aren't synced yet. I don't think that is what you are describing, but your console has 512MB cache for Cloud syncs (futiles was describing) that may not have been uploaded to the cloud yet. If you went to another console before that happens, the cloud could have, in theory, the same version as the second console which would prevent any out of sync error messages from popping up.

Without having more specific data, my guess would be SG is referring to the save state where you can leave a game and come back to it. This is NOT a save, it's simply your X1 has paused the game and has it 'running' still in background. Think of it like this, you can always have three things running - OS (must be here, this is where your Kinect is wasting system resources), an app, and a game. Both app and the game will stay paused as you switch around, until you start another app or game! So if you are running DR3 play a few levels, shut it down for the night. Then the next morning you play a game of Peggle before work, when you come home and fire up DR3 again you will have "lost" all progress in DR3 because you never actually saved anything. Whenever I'm done a game, I save, dashboard, hit menu button and force quit out (keeps the play times on games accurate).

Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but I have never lost a save on either system and I'm positive I've played as many trash games as nearly everyone.

I lost progress in Bridge Constructor and Stupid Snowball fight last week.. I think the sync services were down or very slow. Apparently Snowball doesn't save all of the time, I lost like 30 levels...

Developers still do a poor job of letting you know when it saved or the last time. Even when there is a checkpoint icon popping up, I'm usually focused on some other part of the screen and my brain seems to cancel it out. There were a couple games lately that were kind enough to tell me how long it's been since my last save.
