The disc change gives you a checkpoint not a save, so it's only usable whilst you've still got the console on (it is NOT a save, so if you get there then DO NOT SWITCH OFF YOUR CONSOLE UNTIL YOU USE ONE OF YOUR 3 SAVES ON DISC 2).

Just finished it half an hour ago and the save points I used were:

Chapter 7: Just before the re-entry flying past the debris in space.
Chapter 10: Aboard the Ishimura, prior to facing the two brutes.
Chapter 13: At the beginning, shortly after leaving ellie.

I screwed up way more often on Disc 1 than on Disc 2. Died the first time against the two brutes in chapter 7, and made a couple dumb errors in chapter 9.

I'm not finished with hardcore yet but I saved on chapter 5, chapter 9, and in the middle of chapter 11 just because I was to nervous to move on lol

I'm pretty sure that I can make my way through the last chapters without many trouble though

so you can die during the flight up to Ellie's ship?! you can beat the final boss with all 3 saves used up and then lose all progress since save #3 by colliding with something on the way up to Ellie?

only finished it on Casual so far but as this was after the credits started rolling i wasn't sure i was even doing anything - apart from the bit where you're prompted to tap A to grab her hand. so i had assumed 'Hard to the Core' pops after beating the final boss.

EDIT: seen it confirmed on another thread. better get practising this before any Hardcore attempts!

I'm doing it right now, a few stupid deaths to start made me stop playing a little lol but now i'm pretty confident I'll nail this! Here are my saves so far:

1st: Beginning of chapter 5
2nd: Beginning of chapter 9

I intend to save at chapter 13 or maybe 12 I'm not sure, I'll see how it goes! getting to my 1st save was way harder than my 2nd for some reasons, I died a few times by mistakes, like shooting a window and then missing the red dot lol!

1st: Chapter 5 just before the tormentor grabs Isaac - After 2 stupid deaths trying to make it to the disc switch I couldn't contemplate watching the opening credits again.

2nd: Chapter 8 just before the zero g section - Again I was aiming to go further but died 3 times on the way back down from the solar array in chapter 7 and it was getting late.

3rd: Start of chapter 13 immediately after the drill ride -I had very few problems making it that far and didn't die once. Just remember to check your back as there are plenty of places where necros spawn behind you in these chapters.

probably not the best save points but after dying countless times (im sure by the end of this i will have died almost 100 times)

chapter 3 after your first encounter with the pack, after dying to them 2-3 times and not wanting to go through all of the cutscenes/tutorials again i saved.

Chapter 7 right before the tripod elevator i did manage to get to chapter 8 but died because i thought i would be safe in the power node room turns out your not. Went back and tried a couple more times and died twice on the window because apparently a direct shot isent good enough to close it and a few times to tripods i decided to give it a rest since i was not as focused.

My next save will probably be at chapter 13 or maybe a little before.

Let me just say that Dead Space is my favourite franchise, ever! But as there's so many games I like to play and... life, I've only just come back to Dead Space 2 to go for the final play through on Hardcore.

For those who are panicking on how hard it is... Hardcore isn't hard. You can play it through with ease. The only difficulties that you need to take note is that ammo & health are scarce, the action scenes where you need to shoot a window latch or yellow spots in order to survive (because if you die then you start from your last save or the beginning), and the 3 saves.

I'm fine with playing this over and over, it's just the saves and this is what's stressing me out. I don't want to waste them but I don't want die and start from the beginning without saving it yet. I've personally, today, just played through until I got to Chapter 5 which is entering the Cryo Chambers of dead bodies. I got there and went a bit further because in this chapter you have to fight a Tripod boss in the actual church it's self.
I got to Chapter 5, went through the Cyro Chambers, un-stabalized gravity to go through the roof, stabalized it again and got to a room where it has a store, a Bench and a save point. It has a vent to progress tucked in the corner. THIS is where I saved the game for the FIRST time.

Straight after that save is the Tripod Boss and I didn't want to risk dying there and having to start from the very bloody beginning.

So for everyone starting Hardcore mode, I highly suggest playing to that point and saving it. Simply because there's the risk of getting every shot and I wasn't going to waste the 3 hours I've spent getting to that point.

I'm aiming to save the game every 5 chapters. So half way through Chapter 5, I'll play on until say Chapter 10 or maybe 11, and then I'll use my last save before the eye machine in Chapter 14?

That's the guide I'm going with and if anyone decides to follow it then I wish you the best of luck! (Let me know if you do use it)

Oh! Buy the DLC packs and use the Bloody Force Gun, the Forged Plasma Cutter and Forged Engineer Suit. These will help you greatly as you can get them for free at the very first Store in Chapter 2!! Don't forget to upgrade them! They are your friends!!

I'll post my Hardcore Progression as I get to Chapter 10 or 11.

Best of luck!

Chapter 2 (very beginning)
Chapter 12 (before Drill Ride)
Chapter 13 (before Needle machine)

I was so sick of watching that damned intro that I eventually had it or else my first saved would've been past disc 2.
