What to do about freezing
This happenned to me recently and it sucked.
When I went to continue my game, I noticed that the auto-save file said there was 0 minutes and 0 seconds into the game and save 1, the one I use for normal saves, said I was 5 hours in (i was on the arena in this file). Then save 2, hero saves, said 4 hours. Save 1 didn't work (it kept freezing when it got a little loaded).
So I tried to load auto to see what would happen, it said it was damaged. Then I went to save 2 and it worked. Then I loaded, from there, save 1 and it worked!
So, make sure you have at least 2 other saves besides auto, and if the one you'd normaly use freezes, start a different one and load the normal one. You should be able to use it.
