What upgrades do you recommend getting first? I bought the dash shield and it's not what I was expecting. Then I made the mistake of upgrading the shotgun but the range is lacking. I now see I should have probably gotten more of the sword upgrades instead. What do you all recommend?

The shield dash is weird. I'm still unsure what the conditions are under which it activates. I think it's the most unreliable upgrade in the game.

I thought I would dash through attacks, but you have to time it similarly to the sword deflection skill.

Yeah, I think that's the best way of explaining it. If you go too early you still get hit by the bullets, so you have to dash into the projectile(s) at just the right time to get the shield around the character. Felt a bit weird at first but I got used to it pretty quickly. Chain dashing, on the other hand, continues to baffle me. I just can't get the timing down.

    Thanks for the guide! This is my first PAX, so I'll be making good use of this. I'm there for work, but I should have time to check out a bunch of stuff I want to see and chat with some cool folks.

        @blzzzrrttt: Actually, Gino's interview with Greg is at 7pm, which would be during UPF if that's EST. The event doesn't begin until after UPF.

            Thanks for posting this Rorie! Hope everyone can join us tonight after UPF. I'll be streaming Suikoden II with some other GB folks on my channel (amlabella) if people want to tune into that on explosiveruns.

            Thanks to Duke I still finished second, even after spending some time dead last. Congrats to amlabella, who got the correct championship game (and winner!) and finished on top!

            Thank you very much! This makes up for all the terrible brackets I made in past years... of which there are plenty heh.
