Ever since I picked this game up a few months ago, it's had this issue that whenever I go to play a new episode (or even replay an old one) it doesn't seem to actually read my save files, and always wants to randomly generate choices for me. This means any attempt I make to stick to a cohesive story with my character gets flushed down the toilet, and it's more than a little frustrating, unfortunately. I have more than one save file, and they all do this.
As soon as I load the game, it asks me if I want to randomly generate choices for skipped content, and if I say no, it just boots me back to the main screen. If I say yes, it loads random choices and away I go.
What do I need to do to get it to actually save my game?
Edit: Additional information is that I play the PC version, and have had this issue since episode 1 way back when, and it continues to do this every time a new episode comes out.
