Can't wait to get my paws on this :) hardest mode first, then 'Hard core'!

Jaces2556d ago

wonder if its like only 3 saves per level/stage.

Only 3 saves throughout the entire game is crazy.

@Jaces

Apparently it's 3 saves for the entire game, lol that sounds like it could be quite a challenge.

Jaces2556d ago

Wow, might have to save that for the weekend then. ;P

Oh crap...hardest difficulty with 3 saves for the entire game?? That has to be absolutely frustratingly hard...but I look forward to the challenge...come to think of it, 3 saves for the entire thing?? You have to be crazy!

It's not so bad, really. It's a linear game so, worse comes to worst, you have to re-do a few hours. Sucks, but it could be... worse.

No saves used to be the norm, I don't really consider this increased difficulty. I always used to lose right at the cheap final bosses, that just sucked. Never Again.

It also makes the game more "scary" haha. I have it, when crap pops out and runs out you, you seriously are ready to pee your pants. Then you laugh when its over, most fun ive had in a long while!

MegaMohsi2556d ago

I wonder what the surprise is? @ above wouldnt it make sense to go easy first get the game through then go hardcore lol unless you're sadistic like that

jay22556d ago (Edited 2556d ago )

I always play games on the hardest avalible setting straight away, I.E. I'll play 'Hard' if there's Easy, Normal and Hard.
@Jaces: it's 3 saves throughout the full game.

Blaine2556d ago

You have to unlock the mode! Can't start out on it.

Besides, with only 3 saves, it'll be advantageous to play it on a lower difficulty first (not like you'll have the choice anyway!) and learn where it'll be best to use those saves.

NYC_Gamer2556d ago

i will have to beat this mode even if it causes rage

Passthemic2556d ago

More Deadspace is always a good thing.

Kon2556d ago

Obvious headline is obvious

Quagmire2556d ago
