Both. The article wasn't 'Internet thugs threaten game industry girl irl', it was more 'Here is Gamergate'. They could have reserved a paragraph to talk about the journalism side of the debate. I suppose it's asking too much of a major media outlet to point out lack of journalistic integrity in others (surely Time Warner owns some major gaming outlets?).

Oooh, front page of CNN today, and they were talking about it last night. I didn't expect this kind of mainstream-mainstream exposure. Of course the article is all about web harassment spilling into the real world and gurl gamers, not so much about reviewers being in bed with pubs (which should be the focus)

The save system is, I think, an integral part of the game.  You plan your routes based on what you know about an area.  If you find a save spot, that area becomes your sort of pseudo-sanctuary, your little home base until you finish a section.  There's enough save spots to keep you from losing a ton of progress (Lots of people miss them in their haste, too focused on escape or evasion to find them.) but spaced out enough that you always fear dying, which you should.  It's kind of the entire basis of the game.  You don't want to get caught, you don't want to die.

Ya this for sure. I've learned to know where the emergency boxes are now. I wasn't using the map feature enough earlier on, almost forgot it was there...very useful of course.
