So I think i had a stroke of genius!
Is it possible to change a games default save directory? When you download ubuntu 12.04lts they offer you a chance to register an account on ubuntu 1 and get a free 5 gb of cloud storage. At first I was thinking this was absolutely useless to me as there is nothing i would want to upload in that size, then I got a crazy idea. What if I changed my games default save directories to a centralized folder that was set to be the shared folder for my cloud storage. I would have no problem fitting all my games in that 5gb space ( don't think I've seen a game save take more then 100mb but don't quote me) and that way I would be able to seamlessly switch from gaming on my gaming rig to hooking up my laptop to my TV and even being able to access my saves and play from a buddy's house who owns the same games I do.

No ideas? Would another forum topic have anymore insight on it? I thought about posting it in windows 7 or software but decided it fit better here
