Reminds me of EGA games. Lots of cyan.

@zerdune: to me it reminds me more of sega cd games

"Congratulations for beating Hardcore Mode! Here's a shitty video filter."

#5 Posted by BBAlpert (1375 posts) -

I haven't liked much of what I've heard about or seen of Dead Space 3, but that's pretty dope.

It was funny to me to see someone with a Megaman avatar make a comment about "Lots of cyan" :P

No sepia filter, no buy.

#8 Posted by GERALTITUDE (2951 posts) -

That's... somewhat cool. I'd play that for a few minutes.

#9 Posted by Master_Funk (728 posts) -

That looks so abrasive. Don;t know how I could play the game like that.

Better than an achievement.

Early contender for 'most disappointing unlock of the year'?

#12 Posted by mrfluke (5093 posts) -

im just gonnna tag into this as he wanted to see how the retro mode looked.

#13 Posted by MooseyMcMan (10496 posts) -

That's.... unusual. And disappointing. I was hoping for a weird sidescroller.

#14 Posted by Milkman (16535 posts) -

Weird. I'd like to see it in motion though.

#15 Posted by zolloz89 (248 posts) -

That's.... neat.

#16 Posted by Ghostiet (5227 posts) -

I'm eagerly waiting for a video playthrough of hardcore mode in retro mode.

#17 Posted by Jack268 (3387 posts) -

Are you meant to play with that on or just take screenshots of it? 
 
Because it looks like something that'd make you vomit after the first 10 minutes or so

#18 Posted by charlie_victor_bravo (944 posts) -

That is freaking rad!

#19 Posted by Manhattan_Project (2119 posts) -

That looks terrible.

#20 Posted by Joeyoe31 (820 posts) -

That looks awful.

#21 Posted by supamon (1333 posts) -

That looks kinda cool but I'd probably get a headache playing with that on.

#22 Posted by believer258 (11663 posts) -

That's ugly. Why would I ever want to play a game like that? That's something that I would have to get past in order to play old games, not a reason for me to play them.

#23 Posted by Demoskinos (14574 posts) -

That...looks dumb. The reward for beating Deadspace 2's hardcore mode was way better. The finger gun.

#24 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7052 posts) -

I was hoping for something closer to Lone Survivor. I know it'd be hard to do but man that'd be awesome.

#25 Posted by graf1k (413 posts) -

Looks cool for a minute but I wouldn't want to do an entire playthrough like that. Kind of stupid they hide it as an unlock for beating hardcore though.

About what I thought.

#27 Posted by Ducksworth (659 posts) -

That's kinda cool, but like any other visual filter I'll probably turn it on for a few seconds just to see how it looks and then turn it back off. They should include the equivalent of Doughnut Drake...like an ice cream Isaac.

#28 Posted by Dallas_Raines (2138 posts) -

Whatever, I think that looks awesome.

#29 Posted by NapTimeSleeper (329 posts) -

That looks pretty cool, although, I couldn't imagine playing through the entire game again with that filter on.

Concept art is the perpetual most disappointing unlock.

#31 Posted by Bane122 (783 posts) -

That's pretty neat. I bet it looks really cool and weird in motion.

#32 Posted by joshthebear (2700 posts) -

Man, eff that.

How about this? "Congratulations! You beat the game! Now play the demo!"
#34 Posted by Cobra_Kai (21 posts) -

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS?!

#35 Posted by LackingSaint (1772 posts) -

Looks neat, better unlock than environmental concept art.

#36 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11485 posts) -

It falls into the realm of "This is funny but totally useless outside of 15 minutes of novelty". The idea of playing the game like it was for the Sega CD sounds hilarious, but yeahhhhh....

#37 Posted by JasonR86 (9609 posts) -

That's an awful reward for what you have to go through to get it.

#38 Posted by ArtisanBreads (3755 posts) -

Sewer Shark except now you can get out of the vehicle.

#39 Posted by Encephalon (1240 posts) -

Dammit. I was envisioning a sweet 2D side-scroller.

I haven't seen it yet, because I don't necessarily want to 'spoil the surprise' since I'll be planning on attempting to unlock it, but I take it's not up to the same standard as this.

Not even close. Well, maybe. It depends on what you want to get out of your reward. Without spoiling it, if you think video filters are really cool you like the new reward.

#42 Posted by DukesT3 (1893 posts) -

I was expecting a side scroller or a top down game.. but thats.. neat.

#44 Posted by Danteveli (1163 posts) -

It would be painful to play like this but I will have to try at least until first enemies show up.

#45 Posted by laserbolts (5313 posts) -

Is this the WiiU version or something?

#46 Posted by TheHumanDove (2523 posts) -

All dis hate. Most games dont unlock much of anything when you beat the game. Anything extra is nice

#47 Posted by buft (3301 posts) -

@mrfluke cheers i was wondering what it would look like, reminds me of the cutscenes from early pc 3d games

It's a dumb unlock that I would be happy with if it had been associated with the normal difficulty. But doing this for the insane hardcore difficulty doesn't seem worth it. I mean that's the big bonus for going through that fucked up mode and it just isn't that great. Uncharted 2 had simpler video filters but there were three of them that could be unlocked even prior to the game's completion on any difficulty.

I don't know. Someone will think this is worth the effort. I just don't get it.

I think it looks pretty badass.

like an old-school PC adventure game.
