Dead Space 2's hardest difficulty setting is unlocked upon the completion of single-player. Hard Core mode, as it's appropriately dubbed, limits you to three saves. Only three. And when you die, you start back at your last checkpoint. F*ck!
As demented as that sounds, it might just be worth for the unlock. I don't want to ruin the surprise for anyone, but I will say that the item in question can go "bang bang" and "pew pew pew." Their words, not mine. Anyone here going to give Hard Core a shot?
I'm trying to mentally come up with the best spots to save, and it's not easy. Those last few chapters of Dead Space 2 do not let up.
