The thought was, why not start a new game and revisit all the intro stuff now that I'm familiar enough with the game that I can't miss it. Which, by the way, is working out well thus far. I'm trying to square away a lot of the minigame shit before I even BEGIN to start the first core mission in the game. Thus far, I've knocked off the taxi missions, earned a good amount of scratch, and the taxis all have nitro boosts. Next up: gang tagging.
Unfortunately, My mind was on autopilot when I saved the new game at some point, because the last I checked, I had (by accident) COMPLETELY written over the old game, which means I need to play the WHOLE goddamn way through again just to get back to where I had been.
There's my oops-du-jour, fer shure.
