Via Gametap I am playing this game, I just started, but so far it is rivetting!

Anyway, how do you save in the game?  I bring up the menu, and only see options for Load, not Save?  I am early in the part where you are in the lighthouse and all of the kids are asleep.

Thanks for the help.  Seems like a fantastic game so far.

It's a great, great game.  One of my favorites.

Saving happens at terminals in the game... I think you don't get to your first save-point until you meet Pey'j in his workshop.

Just beware- the game is pretty much set up for a sequel that ain't going to happen. 

*Note to developers*- please do not make assumptions about sequels until financial success of your first title is assured.

It's a wonderful, thoughtful, moving game that deserved a sequel.

Am I the only one who don't think it's that good ?

Played it for 2-3hrs and was bored with it. But then again I was
bored with Sly Cooper too. Guess I need more or action smile

Nope. I started it and played a bit and was not able to get into it. Set it aside for something else to restart later. How long of a game is it on average?

The rule is.. If you set aside a game, sell it, you'll never go back to playing it. (at least usually)

I find this true in general, so once I set something aside, its dead to me.  This one I completely missed, so it seems thoughtful and well produced, and a bit touching in parts so far.

I loved it, minus the final boss fight.  An excellent title.

Same.  It was really disproportionate with the rest of the game.  But it was a great experience with characters and a story that really pulled me in.

Exactly how I felt.  It was like they didn't know how to cap the game.

I enjoyed this game very much... Hmmm I don't think I actually finished it to the end, but pretty close... Definitely a sleeper hit...

I think they were just trying to do something very different and really just didn't know quite how and we got that lame boss. Still, it was so obviously set up for a sequel it breaks my heart we wont get it.

There's always fan writing.

Okay, now I'm going to hell for even suggesting that.

I agree.  Anyone else just turn the controller upside down?

Well, I manned up and figured out how to play and win the end boss sequence (and we probably shouldn't get too detailed without spoiler tags), so I don't know about you suckers.

I quite enjoyed the game, but I have to say, throughout the entire game I felt like something was missing. Either that I wanted it to be more combat heavy, or more platforming heavy, or something. It's an odd 3rd person adventure/racer/flyer that never seemed to have a core gameplay style. That's how I felt. Like a game made up entirely of side- and mini- games (racing, flying, photos, fetch quests), without the actual gaming - Zelda-ish, I suppose - being all that substantial. Kinda hard to describe what I mean, but some of you may know what I'm talking about.
