This is to confirm for everyone that you have to complete the entire game without dying. It is not just each level.

Agreed. But still finally proof on this achievement.
Could you actually test as well if quitting out after finishing a chapter resets you back to chapter 1.
I would try it myself but I haven't unlocked NYM HC yet.

Maybe i'll test it later but im pretty sure it would start you back at Chapter 1. The main difference I can see is that there is no menu at all for NYM Hardcore. In the regular NYM there is a menu for selecting chapter, outfit, and aim settings. In hardcore you press start and instantly load into chapter 1, after that you load right into chapter 2 there is no menu down time.

Thanks for the confirmation. Now I can officially say Fuck the 1000 on this game. I was already planning on not going for it since I have no desire to play through the game 5 times. But this makes that decision even more set in stone.

In a way it feels great. Like a load off my mind. Now I can focus on just playing the game for fun and not stressing over the thought of doing this. It's actually a good thing to do this from time to time. (Just play for fun and not worry about completion.)

It's a lot better to have that mindset than to go for it and fail. That just feels terrible in my opinion. Like Dead Space 2. I have every achievement in that game except the one for beating Hard Core with only 3 saves. I nearly got it, but eventually gave up. I just don't think I should stress out so much over something that is supposed to be a way to relax and have fun.

Sorry for the random monologue. I was just rambling. :p Good luck to anyone that 1000's this game. I respect your considerable gaming skills. :)

oh well, this will probably be a 990G game for quite a while, may give NYM hardcore a go in the summer until i finish it or maybe R* will see how ridiculous this is and patch it.

I appreciate hard and challenging achievements (Trails evolution) but not bullshit achievements like this. Thankfully, i don't care about achievements so it's great for me either way!

I wouldn't mind this achievement so much if you got a checkpoint at the halfway point of the game. The biggest issue with an achievement like this is not only is skill a factor but so is being lucky enough to not have the game freeze or suffer a power outage randomly, or just plain encounter a glitch that makes you start over.

So its a bullshit achievement because it's hard to obtain, those are the achievements I like, something challenging that only a dedicated few will get. They are just computer generated numbers created by M$ and this so called gamerscore that so many gamers obsese over mean nothing in the real world. Are you going to put your gamerscore on your resume when you go looking for a job or use your gamerscore as a pick up line, HELL NO.
Some times I long for the days when there was no achievements and people played games for fun.

It's not that it's hard to obtain, it's just bullshit. Not only you have to be skilled (we are talking timing and not dying also) but you have to be so lucky not to get glitched or the power cuts off on your home accidently or hiding for too long till the time finishes.etc especially with the A.I being aggressive and coming out in packs of 5's & 10's

Give me something challenging to obtain but for crying out loud make it a logical challenging achievement. Hell, the Dead Space 2 hardcore one is a logical achievement, it gave you the option to save only 3 times but if you die you return to the last time you saved, this i can understand and appreciate.

But yeah, i enjoy the game for what it is and not for it's achievements so it's fine by me that they did this bullshit non-logical achievement. However, what i meant is that i appreciate a challenging but logical and fair achievement (Ninja Gaiden 2 cheevos come to mind)

This is exactly the way I feel. Just last night when I was playing normal NYM mode my game got stuck on the loading screen in chapter 12. Now had that been NYM HC that would of been hours wasted due to a fault of the game, not me. I stopped striving for completions a while ago so its not a big deal for me to not ever get this, but all devs need to take things besides skill into consideration when making crazy achievements like this.

I think R* did this on purpose and made the achievement so small that we won't bitch to much about it because they know it's almost impossible. That and so the one's that can actually do it have the bragging right for it.

I can't sit at a game for that amount of time in one sitting so fuck it being hard, it's just plain stupid. Many other gamers can't play a game all in one go for that period either. Top it off with the numerous bullshit deaths or fails the game throws at you sometimes due to bugs or glitches and it's just not worth even entertaining. Still, I gave up ever trying to complete R* games years ago as the lists are too time consuming for my liking. Great games, often great achievements, but always a couple thrown in just to give the game artificial longevity.

Sounds like this is going to be one of those famous "Hard or almost impossible to earn achievement" I def take a deep bow to each that might manage to obtain this, but i geus for most of us we probly stuck at 990G.
I def agree with some that mention gamerscores not give you any benefits in daily life or as a pick up line, but i can imagine some are kinda fixed on getting each game 1000G, its to each him or herself ofcourse, i gave up on that a long time ago i just want to enjoy the games i can efford with my low budget i got for them and not being fixed to beat each game i get for 1000G if i do get it then its a nice bonus but no must.
For all those desperate to get a full 1000G out of Max Payne 3 good luck! :) And i hope Rockstar fix or patch this somehow because honest what you been thinking to have gamers go thru new york minute harcore and then reward them with only 10G ;)
Just quik this for all those that played Bulletwitch probly remember that you had to play thru nightmare after all the other difficulty setting and only been rewarded with... 1G

Finally there is a hard achievement that only the hardcore shooter fan will unlock, so you just complain and complain, because your skills and determination are not enough. Dead Space 2 hardcore was too easy anyway. It's all about practicing and dying over and over again until you some day get it. I was excited when I read this, not annoyed. The road to getting this one will probably be pretty damn frustrating though.

Challenge is great and I, and others too, welcome it. I don't however welcome a game freeze or fall through the floor bug after putting 4+ hours into a single achievement. That is why people are complaining and rightfully so.

Let's say it's 4-6 but you really have to be planing ahead. I have a full time job, a girlfriend and an active social life. So squeezing in the time for this achievement might become difficult but should be manageable.
Propably it's gonna be more than just the assumed 4-6 hrs since the constant failing while going for this is surely gonna take some time away as well.
But still, this game is only out a couple of days and NYM HC has already been beaten and that's good news.

It shows a middle ground. Achievements don't have to be assigned gamerscore to reflect difficulty. They know the vast majority of people will never beat it, so they assign the majority of gamerscore to the not so hard achievements.

Makes perfect sense to me. You are just looking at it in a slightly different way to me.

Wow and this game was suppose to be my "relax game" in between playing Ninja Gaiden 2. Then I learn about this shit.....geez. To those who keep coming in here and trying to defend this achievement please swallow your pride STFU and listen to what people are saying. It's not so much that the achievement is hard that is unacceptable. The problem is having hours of work and possible success put into the achievement only to lose it all due to something that's out of your control. Such as a power outage, random game freeze or glitch that forces you to reset your console. That said, we have every right to complain, and to fault Rockstar for our misery.

And in advance to any who defend this achievement and reply negatively to my post......Please just STFU.

The problem here is that while it requires dedication and another person most likely. Still, you could put it on medium or easy and just pass through the songs while slow but you still can pass where as in this mode on Max Payne 3, it's time based which means you have to be quick, not to mention it's on Hardcore difficulty. It puts pressure on the console so you are more likely to freeze or glitch out. Enemies are aggressive and come in packs of 5's/10's that shoot everywhere all over your ass.

The last 2 levels of the game is like the last epic fight scene in the new Rambo movie and Terminator 1 in the police station (1 vs 90384908384897342 enemies) these all coupled with you maybe making a mistake by bullet-dodging and hitting a wall or not covering fast enough all could make you restart to chapter 1.

I admire your dedication for i would never go for an achievement that needs me to work 6 hours on it which means the console also gets leaved on for that much which is not good since 360 are oh so reliable. All in all, it's just a bullshit achievement. Challenging? yes. Logical? no. Bullshit? yes. You need all the luck you can get to go through it, not just skill.

That's true. I only had 2 glitches throughout my 1st playthrough. Once the game crashed to the dashboard and another time it got stuck at the death screen and wouldn't let me retry. I hope I don't encounter any kind of major glitch on my 2nd playthrough.

I do think I'll check out the playthrough though. It might be funny to see him rage over legitimate glitches. That's the thing that pisses me off and makes me dislike this guy the most. Whenever he fucks up or does something stupid he blames the game and tries to say that it's a glitch. Even though anyone with eyes can see he's completely full of shit. :p

Rockstar originally posted info on the social club page about being able to select your difficulty in NYC minute and being able to complete NYC minute (Hardcore) chapter by chapter. Neither of these options are possible.

However, what if that's the way it was originally intended, and one of the reasons for the day one patch? If someone who has unlocked NYC minute mode could delete the update and try offline.... it's a long shot but who knows?

Rockstar originally posted info on the social club page about being able to select your difficulty in NYC minute and being able to complete NYC minute (Hardcore) chapter by chapter. Neither of these options are possible.

However, what if that's the way it was originally intended, and one of the reasons for the day one patch? If someone who has unlocked NYC minute mode could delete the update and try offline.... it's a long shot but who knows?

Yes, long shot indeed but worth a try.

I will get this achievement even if it takes me years. I'm hoping by the time I do my four playthroughs and NYM that I'll know the levels and enemy locations inside and out.

I mean it's even hard enough if they had done this CHAPTER VISE. I died in my Hard run like over 200x and I'm still in Chapter VII. How you suppose to die not one single time. SUCK THIS SHIT UP...

when you start normal NYM, do you get to pick difficulty, and aim type?

No. There are no menu screens at all. You can't change any options.

I said it either was you or R* and didn't say yeah, it was totally you because at that moment we had no proof whatsoever. However, now that we do, we know it was a mistake on R*'s part.

Yeah, way to drop the ball on their part. Oh well, it still isn't as bad as i expected it to be, atleast it's at medium diff. which is way better, imagine if it was on Hardcore diff, lol.

So NYM:HC is just medium difficulty??? Well in that case this will be easy. ;)

I would go for this if it was like dead space so i could save half way or something. No way will i be able to play 4+ straight hours. Even if i had no commitments i still wouldnt be able to bring myself to do that. I thought games come with health warnings saying you are not supposed to play that long? Wouldnt this mean R* are trying to get people to ignore them?

Don't be ridiculous. There is no health risk for playing games for 4+ hours. It's no different than watching tv. A lot of players go for a dozen or more hours at a time if they're really into the game. I don't ever go to that extreme unless it's a game I love. But I do know people that do, and they're in perfect health. That doesn't make it any less of a stupid thing to make an achievement though.

I got Hard To The Core so I'll give this a try. Probably fail miserably. ;)

Unless Epic Games are releasing a game this year it seems Rockstar have Hardest Achievement of the Year sewn up already.

Good luck on having the game not crash, or the crap mechanics for cover not getting you killed. My 360 is 3 years old, no way that bastard would last without at least freezing. It froze randomly on GTAIV (installed also on HDD) and it was half as buggy as this shet. My PS3 freezes starting the browser, much less playing for hours. Point being, HA! at this achievement.

I can't sit at a game for that amount of time in one sitting so fuck it being hard, it's just plain stupid. Many other gamers can't play a game all in one go for that period either. Top it off with the numerous bullshit deaths or fails the game throws at you sometimes due to bugs or glitches and it's just not worth even entertaining. Still, I gave up ever trying to complete R* games years ago as the lists are too time consuming for my liking. Great games, often great achievements, but always a couple thrown in just to give the game artificial longevity.


oh like kingpin and that dice ach that requires no one leaves the table even if they loose in rdr? rockstar are idiots.

No. As soon as you press A to play this mode, it gets you right into the game.

I normally have no problem with this stuff, but there are 2 BIG problems.

1. The game just isn't stable enough for that period of time. I mean, my xbox crashed after 5 hours on Rock Band 2, but it was the consoles fault. Also, complaining about power outage is a tad bit insane. How often does that happen? To me, the last time was probably 1-2 years ago.

This is no Bethesda game, but Rockstar games happen to have a few random glitches that can result in a restart. I for once only had one when Max didn't stop chaning weapons and couldn't fire a single shot anymore. Not a problem with frequent checkpoints. On a 4-5 hour run, this would kill me.

2. A shooter should NEVER EVER have a single segment speedrun achievement. It's just too damn random when you get hit, especially in this game. Shootguns can kill you from 50ft. away, AI has near perfect aim and you get hit while blind firing (That alone is just plain stupid in itself).

Say you made it too the last boss and he happened to fire a grenade off screen, and you aren't able to hit it in time. BAM - One hit kill. Or something else just kills you that never happened before. In shooters, even with all the skill, there is just to much luck involved.

And that is, why this achievement is retarded. Put this mode in, if you want, but don't make it part of the achievement list. I would rather get to level 50 with a second character.

Nobody says shit better than him! LOL.

Anyways, yeah at first we thought this was actually hardcore difficulty and you must not die + time would be a huge issue. But as we learned more of the mode and me actually trying it out, i finally done it and it isn't as hard as i thought it was but thats probably because i completed the game more than 4 times + the attempts i did on NYM: HC.
