I remember when I first played the original Kingdom Hearts game, I use to save a lot. I also use to save on a different line each time on the memory card. My grandson said, "Grandma, you are going to run out of memory on that card." I actually almost did.
I am a compulsive saver. It has helped me out of a lot of messes. When I would get stumped, and I did get stumped a lot, I could always backtrack. I could also go back and play favorite parts over and over again. One of my favorite parts was when you got to be a Heartless in Hollow Bastion.
So what are your "save" habits.
