A patent's coverage is defined by its claims. In particular, it is good to start by focusing on the independent claims (in this case claims 1, 13, 19, 24 and 27). Lets look at claim 1:
A method for enabling interaction with a shared game data file using a game device, the method comprising:
providing logic to perform
one or more actions associated with the shared game data file;
providing logic to cause the game device to perform an action in the
one or more actions with the shared game data file as part of
operating a game of a plurality of games, the shared game data
configured to store at least first game data associated with
accomplishments attained in a first game of the plurality of games and
second game data associated with accomplishments attained in a second
game of the plurality of games, the shared game data being such that
at least one accomplishment attainable in the first game is distinct
from accomplishments attainable in the second game;
logic in the second game to use the first game data to provide a user
game opportunities in the second game not available to the user based
on accomplishments attained in the second game alone, wherein at least
one game opportunity made available in the second game is the result
of an accomplishment in the first game distinct from accomplishments
possible in the second game, wherein the logic to perform one or more
actions is included on a game medium.
A cursory review seems to suggest that this patent indeed potentially covers your scenario. In addition, the claim doesn't seem to limit the location of the game data file to local storage so it indeed may cover storage on a remote database. However, this might hinge on how the term "data file" is defined within the specification.
Regardless of my brief review, I strongly suggest you get a freedom-to-operate evaluation by a qualified patent attorney. Especially with software patents, details and precedents are important. I certainly wouldn't rely on unqualified opinions provided on the internet. Just to be clear, I am not an attorney so my comments do not represent legal opinions.
