Am i screwed?

OK so I've completed it once and unlocked impossible mode. I have my 2nd easy play thorough save file still. In my impossible play through I got stuck with no ammo at the first tentacle drag sequence. So I started a new impossible run but dashboarded as I was done for the night. Only to find out impossible isn't a choice anymore. Can I finish the game again on my 2nd easy play through and unlock impossible mode again? Or do I have to start a new file completely?

You need to have a "Cleared" save on the hard drive in order for Impossible to register. So, if you beat the game again, it should show up.

To anyone suffering from a similar problem, yes, the game will sometimes forget that you've unlocked Impossible mode if you don't have a save in it. As long as you still have the save from the first time you beat it (new game+), just load that up, quit out, and Impossible difficulty should be available as an option when starting a new game. Otherwise, you may need to completely play through the campaign again.
