Returnal Patch 1.3.3

The first post-launch patch for Returnal has arrived, but it comes with a bit of a caveat...as many have noted/complained Returnal does not let you save in the middle of a run, which in many cases can last a couple hours or more...in order to get around this restriction, many are putting Returnal in Rest Mode mid-way through runs as a crude save of sorts, but if the new update downloads while the game is in Rest Mode that run will be wiped by a reset

Housemarque is recommending players wanting to keep their run via Rest Mode turn off auto-updates...

I don't understand the "no save" mindset. Only "roguelite" I've played that didn't offer a save option was Rogue Legacy, but runs in that game were really short. They couldn't drag on like this game or others like Dead Cells.

Really enjoying this one so far. Gameplay loop is fun and the sound is amazing - really great surround implementation.

I guess I got lucky with items because I beat the first two bosses on my second run. Had the third boss to half health before it got me. Had some decent regen items so that was probably the biggest help.

The whole save thing is really annoying though. Took me hours to get to the third boss and I don't want to be forced into that time commitment every time I play. Yes you can put the game in rest mode but so many things can screw that up. I don't think I want to start planning around system updates and game patches.

New Returnal Update 1.3.4 Deployed After Yesterday’s 1.3.3 Patch Gets Pulled

Yesterday, the developer deployed a new update for Returnal, but shortly after its release, the patch was pulled and the game version was reverted to 1.3.1...apparently, various users were presented with a CE-100028-1 error after applying the 1.3.3 patch

on Twitter, Housemarque advised owners of the game to don’t start the game until a new update has been made available...in addition, all users affected by the CE-100028-1 are required to re-download Returnal on PlayStation 5...

Remember this guy anyone?
Nice, I was subbed to Rev3 games when he was on there too and then that channel died years ago. So I've been waiting for him to come back in some capacity. I don't see Morgan Webb on that channel anywhere though in the thumbnails. Is she back too?

Edit: Looks like they got back together like 5 months ago.
