Based on Ryan's quick response and his history on this forum, I feel confident purchasing this game knowing it will be fixed. But this is a good time to clean up my GC list. Mind you, I don't necessarily care about my scores on GC, I care about loading and playing any game without having to constantly toggle GC off and on. Update: I went in and deleted about 10 people. I only had 123 GC friends. Lo and behold, Adventures of Pip now plays just fine (it wouldn't even load before-see my whining over there), and this game plays fine as well. Go figure.
