Well I already have a hardcore save at chapter 11. All I need is the "Hard to The Core" trophy and I get platinum. Will my dead space 2 data not get on to the other persons system after swapping accounts. If any can help beat Hardcore for me because I suck at hardcore and am trying to platinum this game feel free to private message me.

Account Swapping is not allowed on the site.

And... if you made it that far, why not go further?

The save information is saved to YOUR PS3, not your account
And as stated before, account swapping is not allowed

Dude, seriously, what is the point. How could you feel good about something YOU didn't do?????? If you didn't complete it then how can you feel proud and show off your accomplishment. If you can't do it yourself, you shouldn't bother and forget the trophy and .

Before someone brings up boosting, that is a multiplayer thing and you need others to accomplish those anyways. So getting together to help others get those, at least they and you are doing YOUR part to get them. A single player trophy should always be done by yourself. All my single player I did by myself and I can say "I did that". Hard to the Core being one of them.

I've reached to chapter 11 and used all my saves but I've tried so many times yet I keep dying. The farthest I've gotten is to chapter 15 with the room with the puker, and slasher climbing out of that hole and has a bunch of containers blocking the way.
Instead of continuing to get frustrated with this ill-placed Save on Chapter 11, just restart the game and use the Saves on more appropiate places.
Restarting isn't that big of a deal, if you restart and use your 3 Saves properly, you're gonna waste less time than if you persisted on the Chapter 11 Save of the current playthrough.
It's better to die on Chapter 6 and watch and intro five times, than to have your 3rd Save placed on Chapter 10, for example, and having to do a perfect-flawless run across 50 tries.
And do it yourself, otherwise you won't have the right to say "I DID IT!" and won't have the immense satisfaction when the trophy pops up, which is the main reason most people get trophies in the first place.

EDIT: If you got that far even with your 3rd Save being on Chapter 11, then you can easily complete the game with the 3rd Save on Chapter 13 at least, I'm sure!

Everyone tends to approach it differently depending on their taste and what weapons they like. I can only tell you how I did my run. You may find it useful or completely pointless.

Saves.

1. I planted my first save on Chapter 5 before the tormentor fight. It took me 2 hours to get there and I didn't want to die in a instant kill sequence. It was a good spot for me.

2. Orginially I planned to save on chapter 9 before the tripod nest but I got nerves before the Zero-g bit on Chapter 8 so saved there. This wasn't too bad.

3. I saved before the drill ride on Chapter 12. I actually went up to Ellie and listened to her talk about using the drill then went back and saved so I wouldn't have to listen to it over and over if I died. From here it would only take an hour tops to beat the game so I was happy with that.

Weapons and upgrading.

First I set about upgrading Stasis. I used my first 5 nodes from Chapter 1 on just stasis energy. Get Stasis upgraded guick, it is a life saver, then do Rig and weapons simultaneous.

For my weapons I used the Plasma cutter as my primary weapon until I got the Ripper. I then concentrated on powering that up as my primary. It is a brillant weapon to use. Stasis enemies and then tear them to shreds. I kept the PC as secondary as it is a great long range weapon.

When the Contact Beam became available I bought that but didn't use it straight away. I kept it in my inventory to get ammo pick ups for it. Around chapter 10 or 11 I then powered up the CB to get the special on the Alt fire. Use it on the lift ride on chapter 11. It makes that fight very easy.

At my last save I respeced my Plasma Cutter and got rid of it and used the nodes to fully upgrade HP and do as much of the Contact Beam as possible. From here it was just my Ripper and CB. From here on it was pretty straight forward. Use the CB on the drill ride, run in circles to avoid the Lurker fire and Alt fire when necros climb on board. For Chapter 13 I stuck to the Ripper as much as possible. It took the Dark Brute down in two blades.

After the Eye poke machine I had around 50 rounds of CB ammo, more than enough to take me to the end. I just ran it through chp 14 and 15 using the alt fire to stop anything in it's tracks. It also works brilliantly for the final battle.

Good Luck with your attempt.

I disagree, it isn't easy at all. Far from it. But I guess it's because I played hard core as my second play through. Of course hard core is easy if you already have played the game 100 times before. Or maybe I'm really bad on playing this.

I was planning to save at chapter 7, but after dieing so many times I end up saving in beginning of chapter 5. Not to worry, I can save at chapter 10 next. After that I died several times more and even more on the free fall section in chapter 7. So I saved before the free fall in chapter 7. Next I was planning to save in beginning of chapter 13. After some more deaths I saved on beginning of chapter 11. So far it was frustrating and I have saved on bad locations (5, 7, 11). I had problems with the rotating lasers room on my first try so I knew I was doomed. But at this moment I've learned a lot and learned how to use my weapons more effectively. So from chapter 11 I reached chapter 15 without dieing. Then of course I died on the very last rock in the flying section in chapter 15.

Even when you watch a guide on youtube, this will be really hard. Unless you already learned how to play each chapter. If I play it from the beginning I would probably make through the whole game without dieing so much. But calling this easy is completely wrong. The game is fun though, so I agree on that.

(And why is this thread created again? Even from same poster? http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/dea...difficult.html)
