I was just playing Merceneries: Playground of Destruction before work this morning, and just as I completed the first level (by capturing the Ace of Clubs) the Xbox froze up. I waited several minutes for the program to continue. But it never did.

When I rebooted the Xbox, all of my progress had been lost, and I was back to where I was before starting the mission. A mission which had taken me over half an hour to do.

(A little asside: I did this mission with style! There is nothing that says panache to me like stealing a T-56 tank and using it to blow everything up! But they are so hard to steal in the first place...)

Now the question is, what to do? And since I recently discovered the joys of polls:

What should I do about loosing my progress in Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction?
Smash the TV.
Smash the Xbox.
Use the game disk for skeet.
Quit whining and use the experience to complete the mission even better.

Free polls from Pollhost.com

And, no. I don't know why the big space appears above the poll.

I don't know how Xbox works, but I know that when I'm playing PC games (like Doom 3), I save the game before opening ANY door.

Does Xbox HAVE a "quicksave" feature?

You can't save at all while your doing a mission. But I did finish that one after work, and it worked fine this time.

I vote for the "hang yourself, because life just isn't worth living if that happened to you" option, but it doesn't seem to be an option.
