Now I'm not sure if what I experienced was just an isolated event or even if it's completely unrelated.
While I was playing ONI, I rolled back to a previous save maybe...3 or 4 times(?)
Each time I did so, there was a MASSIVE CPU and memory spike, that got worse the more I reloaded a save from the pause menu, not the start screen mind you.
So much so in fact that on the second rollback my laptop was unresponsive for a bit. It eventually became responsive again, but I then realized that I'd rolled back onto the wrong save, so I chose another save to rollback to, and this time my laptop became unresponsive again, but it never recovered.
It just straight up BSoD on me, and restarted.
I'm hesitant to run some tests on this to confirm in fear of doing damage to my computer.
