Hardcore Mode?

Postby AccelDSX » Tue Nov 03, 2015 10:19 am

So is it possible to have a mode where if there is lives introduced the ability to rely on them, if you run out of them, you have to restart the whole game.

Evil I know, but that constant challenge is what was missing from banjo kazooie and tooie and all games with lives in general.

there is no risk in dying, it's a minor set back to the hub world or start of level.

let's make it more fun to not die!

Maybe not as a difficulty setting for the main game, but I'd love a tucked away challenge a la Now Who's Boss?

Maybe just for a world this should happen. Perhaps to be extra infuriating this should be the final world.

I don't like gimmicky "now play the exact same game again but harder" modes.

Dead space has a mode that lets you only save the game 3 times. With a difficulty modifier that might be interesting.

I wouldn't mind at all if they had some special challenge modes added in. My younger brother LOVES replaying games on harder settings. For him playing video games isn't just about having a pleasant experience, it's about totally and completely mastering the game set before him. He's not satisfied until he feels he's conquered a game. He's on his third playthrough of Dark Souls setting his own restrictions like time limits to beat an area and as different classes, and who knows how many hours he's logged into Binding of Isaac unlocking everything. And I mean EVERYTHING. There are completionists, and then there's my brother. Adding challenge modes would be a great a way to keep people who live for the torture playing Y-L for a loooooong time.

I'm a fan of the limited lives mode idea, or at least an achievement for not dying or dying fewer than X-number of times, too.
