    I lost all my 360 savegames.

    :( 

    Every last one. Over a hundred games. Probably 2 hundred or so...

    ...I want to die :( 

    I can't play the new ME2 DLC until I have played ME1 and 2 over again so I can go in to 3 fully prepared.

    I want to die.

    Almost maxed out Borderlands character... oh god somebody hold me.

    Or point and laugh, WHATEVER.

    I know this is a far reach, but you've never saved some of them to a USB that you took so Smang's or something that you might have forgotten about? Hey, something's better than nothin'

    I know I found some old as hell oblivion saves in a folder on my computer from years ago.

    No USB backup of your saves that you're maybe forgetting to fall back on?

    I have my profile on a Memory Unit as I take it with me when I go places where I will be playing. A few weeks back I left it at work. Recovered the tag at home. Did so again at the office the next morning back on the MU. My Xbox has been wigging out recently, been wondering why. That's weird, so figuring that is my problem I make sure that my MU profile is the one I am signed in under and delete the other one. As the approval dialogue pops up I get one of the freezes I have been getting since all this nonsense started. Looks like a total hang so I press a button or two before hitting the guide. Next thing I know its back, duplicate profile is gone...

    ...and all my savegames :/

    Seems during the freeze I approved a "delete all content" thing that burnt them all to hell.

    Fuckity

    On the plus side, no more weird hangs anymore.

    I AM DUMB

    I can only imagine how you raged. I would have thrown the xbox out of the fucking window after curb stomping it.

    :cry

    Ouch, is your Reach data at least saved on the Bungie servers? I would think your ranks and unlocks would be server side.

    EDIT: Thinking about it, you can unlock gear offline too, so maybe not.

    I remember accidentally deleting all my save games about a year ago. I think I traded in all those games in disgust.

    The price may be prohibitive, but I bet a data recovery service could fix it.
    Those zeros and ones are still there, there's just no map to them anymore.

    Man oh man, that shit is my worst nightmare. Looking at Bungie.net is still says you're a commander and all that jazz. Maybe it's not all lost since lots of games track stuff online?

    I agree with Smasher, look into some kind of data recovery service.

    I could have sworn that Bioware's shit was connected to the site somehow (which is why you can update your status with your character's profile), but I dunno if that information goes as deep as the actual save spot.
