I've played roughly 60 hours so far and I've experienced I think around 4 crashes where I tend to lose anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour of play-time per crash (depending on if I'm playing impossible for certain relic requirements). I think it would make it much less frustrating if
a: I could at least preserve my experience/items/credits as of the last autosave after a crash
b: I could pick back up where I was
I understand features like this aren't exactly always the easiest to implement, but if the stability is really going to be this volatile, I think a work around would spare a lot of morale on the part of the player base.
