It's possible my game is bugged. It has happened since the beginning of the game, maybe faulty disc.
All I know is how it is playing straight garbage. Hmm, makes me wonder if it is indeed bugged.
It's almost certain that your's is bugged. My copy plays perfectly and the game is awesome. No one I know who has bought the game (30+ people) has had the same issues.
That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.
