I would have done this, but I've already completed Hardcore.

Doesn't bother me too much, I'm enjoying this game quite a bit.
Thanks anyway!

No, it's definitely Hard. New York minute is on Medium and it's a helluva lot easier than Old School. Bullets don't do as much damage as on Old School.

More like you have no skill, what's your favorite game? Call of Duty? exactly, just shut the fuck up and keep your bitching to the bitching thread.

I think Rockstar did something really good this time around. It really shows by some of the people here how they go apeshit crazy when they reach chapter 10 and all they got is 2 or 3 achievements, lol.

Damn this thread was about 1 week to late for me. I finished my hardcore playthrough and I'm now on chapter 9 on oldschool. It would have been nice to save myself a playthrough.

Nice find

From my experience i thought Old School was easier than Hard + Hardcore. Which is why i wrote what i wrote.

Another person on this site who basis their opinions of games on how easy it is to obtain achievements, how sad. Go play Avatar TBE, NBA2K6, College 2K6 and all the CoD's (except WaW) those seem like more your style.

Maybe it would still work, try it. I already beat the game 6 times so taking a break from it now that i got everything from the game (except being level 50 and unlocking all weapons)

However, you need to finish it on hard to unlock hardcore and oldschool. Finishing it on normal only won't unlock Hardcore or Oldschool.

You finished NYM HC, well congrats sir. I'm saving that for the end. I'm at Level 35 on multiplayer by playing Payne Killer. It's the game mode I do best on and if your good at it you can level up kinda quick. Gang Wars is another mode that works well but sometimes you get on a team that dose not go for the objectives and it gets frustrating.

Yeah, playing gang wars only from time to time. I am enjoying it though so it's all good.

After 7 attempts i managed to finish NYM: HC finally few days ago. It isn't impossible, especially after playing through the game multiple times. Patience, Luck, painkiller locations and knowing the ins and outs of every level is key.

The only thing I didn't like was them adding multiplayer achievements. MP achievements are the bane of the MP community because it causes people to play like retards to get the achievements instead of just being a team player. (Ex: GOW3) I know the specific ones for this game aren't as bad as others, I just don't like the idea of achievements at all in multiplayer. It distracts people.

I don't have a problem with the SP achievements, especially now, thanks to the OP's discovery. This really should get added to the achievement guide.

Yeah, i hate them too because it's just a cheap way to make people keep playing the game (worst if its a bad one) and will cause people to not play MP right + boost (not getting it legit then what's the point?)

For me, if i see a guy getting every achievement in an SP game but some of the MP i consider him having the 100% because in gaming, MP was never part of the experience in the first place, especially in the previous gens when you 100% a game, there was no multiplayer bullshit because this is the way to go. It baffles me how the most popular title (COD) doesn't have MP achievements except black ops and now MW3 with it's DLC.

So yeah, to me a 100% is finishing the SP game and everything that has to do with it. Even DLC i don't add them to 100% a game, because its a cheap way to get people to buy the DLC and keep playing. I bet you 60$ if they don't put achievements in DLC of a certain game 90% of the people wont buy them. 10% are the people who care about the game and story or are fans.

The achievement/trophy market is very big and that's why publishers will find a way to nickle and dime it to the very limit. Just like Gears of war 3's what now 1700 - 2000G? give me a break. It's like hey i know you guys won't play our MP so let me get with some MP DLC achievements so you pay me and keep playing/boosting to no end.

Just tried it out and it worked fine, thanks a bunch. A few things to note though, because i did my first play through on hard but kept soft lock on, i only got the medium cheevo. When i then did it on old school and upon trying op's method, i also got the hard achievement as well as the hardcore and old school.

In case anyone bothers; just tried it the other way around (Dashboarding from HC to Old School) and that does NOT work.
