I am trying to beat the game on hardcore, it is insane...
[/quote]Hence the name... hardcore. Good luck. Check the old forums if they're still up. There are plenty of tips for going through on hardcore. Or just post a new question on tips.
Problem is, the tips tell you basically this: play the game so many times that you practically memorize (for the entire game) where the threats are and what the best course of action is. Most tips also recommend that you NOT waste any saves while
playing disc 1 of the game. These tips were of little use to me as I get killed again and again in disc 1, usually by something silly or random. Good luck.
Have you tried any of the dlc? I recommend the Martial Law pack strictly for the Force Gun. Level that, the Plasma Cutter, and your favorite dlc suit. Level your suit first (health). Carry the Contact Beam so you can sell all the ammo.
The more you play it the more you will remember where those tricky parts are. Always be on your guard. Personally, I saved in Chapter 4, disk checkpoint, right before the Ishimura, and before the eye needle.
Yes! It still gets me sometimes too, I love it man. I usually take a break and replay then so that way I forget some spots where necros are at. last night I played through chapter 11 and it was awesome, couldn't remember hardly anything lol.
