Dont give up!1f62d.png

 

I gave up on this trophy a long time ago and your posts have been inspiring me to go back to it, if you give up there's no hope for me!

Its never too late to go back. It took me almost 6 years to complete this game. You should give it another go. I watched an entire play through ahead of time on hardcore to help prepare.

Gonna necro this thread for my own story. Had made a save at Chapter 8, got all the way to Chapter 12 and was doing great. I had a ton of health kits and lots of ammo for all four of my guns, and I was ready to take on the drill trip easy peasy. My next save was going to be in Chapter 13 too, because I was very tired of having to do 8 and 9 over and over again.

Activated the drill, and while it was getting turned around I ran into it. Dead instantly. 

I was so mad. But on the upside, I was able to get through 8 and 9 without getting even hit once, so that's something. Finished hardcore today, so I'm ready to pew pew my way to platinum.

Dont worry, this thread is all about Necros. ;) .  Im doing my HC run now but I am doing a Zealot side run to practice the tricky HC areas.  I initially keep getting wasted in HC too soon but doing a Zealot side run helps ALOT.  Thus far I have made my first save just before the end of Ch.8.  The flying part.  I had a bit of trouble with that so I wasn't risking it.  Also plan on making a video of trouble spots in the game with alternate ways to beat certain areas.  7 years later I finally picked the game back up for some reason.  Maybe that im getting older I have the experience and patience now.  But their is only a short window now that I am 46. 

 

Will get back to this thread if I dont get smashed to pieces. :P


Edit:  Saved just before the Decontamination Room in Ch.10. One more save left , better play wisely.

Things have been going ok for the moment I guess.

 

My first death came just seconds after the beginning of the game, during the chase.

 

I then proceeded to make an early first save, at the end of Chapter 3. That's because I spent a solid hour farming the power node glitch in Chapter 1, and certainly didn't want to do it all over again. Having a maxed out character (RIG + stasis + 3 DLC weapons) almost from the start helps tremendously, and I can't recommend it enough.

 

I then died stupidly in chapter 6, in the big room with lots of leapers, reinforcing my opinion that leapers are the absolute worst and most dangerous enemies in this game.

 

I started over and things were looking great, but I was really nervous to tackle the free fall section at the end of Chapter 7 after the solar panels, so far from my first save. Sure enough, my nerves failed me and I crashed into a wall, much to my dismay.

 

I had to start over from chapter 3, yet again, and successfully made it through that dreaded part on my second try. My second save was just made at the end of Chapter 8, right before the garbage disposal part and 10 minutes max from Chapter 9, which was my initial goal.

 

Next week I'll be attempting to push till the end of Chapter 13 and the eye surgery. A bit of a stretch, but we'll see.

I just made my third save about 30% into chapter 13, so a little bit behind what was planned. It was a good call since I ran completely out of ammo during the latter part of the chapter and got killed by a black monster.

 

I died about 3 or 4 times in chapter 9 for stupid reasons, twice because I didn't make it on time to the tramway before the explosion (kept trying to go the wrong way, not my proudest moment), and once because I got too close to one of those big tentacled monsters on the wall. Can't remember last death. I didn't die from chapter 10 onwards, but finished the drill section with exactly zero medkit and VERY low health, and was on the verge of a heart attack.

 

EDIT : aaaand got it 😁
