  3. Is anyone NOT worried about rest mode?
I see this fear of rest mode a lot because the game has no save ability but i use rest so much i rarely ever save games anymore. I’ve gotten used to just turning it off and resuming next time i play. I have no issue with the way this game handles runs

I don’t, but I would like to be able to have multiple games active at the same time so you can switch between them. Not a dealbreaker but would be a nice QoL feature.

Using the rest mode for this game itself is not the problem. The problems are, that

  • the game can update itself and kick you out while in rest mode
  • the PS5 can have problems continuing the game after using rest mode
  • you cant play any other game while using rest mode
  • some people still have the bug in mind, that using rest mode for a specific game last year was bricking some consoles

After finishing it. It doesnt need a save option. Defeats the purpose if u can save scum to completion

I can’t use rest mode because 3 people in my house use the PS5. When it’s the next person’s turn your rest mode save state gets wiped every time. The game definitely needs a save feature.

other games have saves that self-delete when used so scumming is not possible, and this game could do that too. But I actually think a more robust save system would be awesome. This game would be hella fun with quicksaves. It I’ll be a blast to play this game in 20 years on an emulator.

The problem is, that you can upload your save to the PlayStation cloud and reload your save endlessly. But if you are that desperate, its on you and not on the developers to stop you doing that.

When the PS5 is walking you through opting into auto-update settings, it explains this. Everyone with it on turned this feature on despite the console warning them that exactly this will happen.

I agree, the game badly needs a single use quicksave feature. But this isn’t why.

not when u can back up your save to the cloud though

Of course everyone did that, but no one knew back then that a game comes out, that you can only pause by using rest mode, because it has no save function :p
