New Game +?

#1 Posted by Mars (310 posts) -

Is there a new game plus option for this game or is it more of a one and done?

Patrick says something about this in the quick look. I think he said you can replay missions, but you only have the powers you acquired at that point. So I don't think there is a NG+.

Hmmmmm. That seems strange. What if I go back and pick up runes? I don't get to keep them?

When he said that I immediately thought how stupid that is.

Has anybody finished it? Any replay ability other than difficulty choices or play style?

There are collectibles to pick up, you can finish the story without killing people and then go through again killing everyone to get a darker ending, missions can be done in multiple ways, you can unlock different skills...

Depends on what you are looking for, but for the money there is more than enough game here.

I killed two people in my game. One was on accident. I have no idea how it happened. As far as I know I left no dead bodies near rats or where they could fall in the water. After that I said fuck it and did the duel. Does anyone know if I can get the Clean Hands (no kills) achievement if I just replay those missions without deaths, or would I have to replay the game from the start?

Hopefully there will be a trainer out for the PC version so I can just boost my guy when I play the game again.

I'd like to know the same thing. Killed a couple of people in the first two missions, but have been pacifist since then.

Thirded. I had two kills when I finished the game, and then I went back to those two missions and completed them without killing anyone, but I still haven't got the trophy. If they honestly expect me to play the whole game again for that one gold trophy they have another thing coming.

Game really needs mission select, lack of new game plus is annoying.

You can do the duel without killing the dude.

Wait a sec, can I only replay missions if I've not killed anyone in them?

Yeah you're going to have to. but if you don't care about the achievement than don't worry about it.

There is a mission select, it's like the third option over on the Main Menu.

No, you can replay any mission regardless of how you approached it.

Unfortunately not at the moment but quite a few are asking for it on the official forums. Lets hope the devs will listen to the gamers.

Maybe DLC? I really would like to jump in the earlier missions with my full upgrades considering I never used them..

#17 Posted by Nightriff (4915 posts) -

@Genkkaku: So you can't jump in full upgraded? I accidentally killed one person in the prison, god I hope I don't have to play through the whole game again just because of that...kinda want to kill motherfuckers on my second go around and not do the non lethal kills, they really aren't that satisfying compared to branding a guy in the fucking face (only good one in my opinion, other non lethal kills are pretty lame)

Not only did he get branded, but you get to see his ultimate in the flooded district level.

@SomeDeliCook: Ah man, not that far yet, oh well, probably should just beat the damn game instead of taking my time with it

I've started my second playthrough. After carefully sneaking around every level and knocking out everyone, its refreshing to go around just stabbing everyone and not care about being caught

Oh I'm sure, but since I accidentally killed someone in the prison so another sneaking/non lethal playthrough is more likely....sigh, just want to stab some of these bad people

#22 Posted by Genkkaku (732 posts) -

@Nightriff: Nah just with what you had unlocked at that point.. I'm just considering getting a trainer or something for the PC version..

@SomeDeliCook: Oh man now I wish I did non-lethal on that guy then.. I switched between the two for every hit depending on how I felt about that character

Huh, I seem to have missions 1 & 2 locked out, even though I've finished the game O_o

Looking a little deeper, although it gives me my stats, the only reason I can think why I can't go straight to them from the menu is because I don't have a save file for either of them any more (overwritten).

Maybe its possible you can replay that level once your done? The game gives you a stats screen when you choose to play specific missions. Maybe you can still replay that level and get the achievement

Oh yeah, I did a double take on that part. There are probably other stuff related to non-lethal takedowns that I didn't notice yet.

Huh, i guess you do need a save to do the missions again, nice find.
