Question Should you stay offline while playing this game?

Hearing about some of the glitches, and the fact that things are saved to your permanant profile, making this game buggy and problematic.

Would it be advisable to keep my XBox 360 offline, make sure I get the glitchable achievements, and if it does glitch on me, go ahead and delete my profile from my drive and then just re-download it from Live? That way, I don't have the information locked into my 'permanant' record, which would make it nigh impossible to get the glitched achievements on?

I would mind having to restart and replay the whole game again if it screwed up... but I would REALLY mind if it glitched bad enough to make it permanantly impossible to gain, especially after working honestly for it.

I also wonder if they're going to add an update to allow a 'Reset' of your data, similar to how Crackdown allowed you to restart all the enemies so that you could fight them again?
*NO* longer playing Kingdoms & Lords!


Send messages to inquire. Some games I no longer have. Ones I have I can help with.

i have stayed offline so far while playing and so far no glitches. I am taking everyone's advice though and not doing any weapon upgrades in the menu before each level and ONLY doing upgrade purchases in-game. Everything has been straightforward so far though in terms of the achievements unlocking when they are supposed to.

I always played it offline and all of the achievements which people have had glitch on them unlocked. The only achievement that glitched on me though was Bookworm, which no one else seems to have had any trouble with.

I have played online so far and the only one that gave me problems was FIREWORKS. However, I got this at the beginning of 3-3 The Revolt by spamming grenades at the 3 or 4 guys coming through big movie screen. With the new ability to use USB Flash drives as storage, I have been copying my game save every time I load up. So now I am farming for credits to buy all the weapon upgrades. As soon as I have enough points I will play offline when I go to purchase.

As others on this site, the only time I have purchased an upgrade was using an in game upgrade box. The only thing I will do at the upgrade menu before and after levels is swap out weapons.
