Hard core mode is Dead Space 2’s highest difficulty setting, in it you’re bestowed with three valuable saves and when you die you revert to your last save. On top of that, enemy health and the amount of equipment you’ll find (like health and ammo) have been drastically reduced. In other words, it’s fucking hard. Usually you’d be rewarded for managing such an incredible feat with a hefty achievement (or trophy) and while that’s certainly part of the reward, it’s not everything. Let me introduce you to the Foam Finger.
Once I realized how insanely challenging Hard Core mode was going to be I wrote it off as something I’d never be able to do. This weapon unlock has changed my mind. Anyone else planning on proving their nerd cred by going for it?
