You kids today. With your regenerating health bars and omens of death. Back in my day, we had limited life bars and only so much turkey to eat to replenish them back in the good ol’ video game days! Rabble rabble rabble! Fortunately, if you’re feeling as old as I am right now, Bioshock Infinite happens to have a more “classic” difficulty mode hidden inside it. Here’s how to unlock it.

Most times, super-ultra f$%k your face difficulty modes require you to beat the game on the supplied challenge settings on offer. Not so with Bioshock Infinite, because all you need to do is to enter a code that should be second nature by now.

I’m talking about the Konami code, the skeleton key of gaming. Just go straight to the main menu, and enter the code. What, you don’t know the code? AND YOU CALL YOURSELF A GAMER? FINE!

PC and Xbox 360:

Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A

Playstation 3:

Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Circle, X

One notification later, and you’ll be having your gentlemanly buttocks kicked all over Columbia by dandy robots. Old School yo!
