Already had to struggle in mainly mission 3 and 10. Especially 10 was kicking my ass till now. And it's only freaking Normal mode, I honestly don't remember struggling with getting by undamaged this much back then. Oh right, fully maxed Dante is invincible. Stupid me.
I've clocked about 1:55, have spent zero orbs so far, having collected over 40k and since I have no sanity I'm going to keep going without upgrading anything till the end. Griffon 2 and 3 are going to be the biggest problems because no Meteor and no Roundtrip. I honestly have no idea if it's possible to make the time requirement in those missions without such things as I've never tried going upgradeless before, much less so with only Special Bonuses.
Well I guess once I'm done with Normal I'll move on to Hard and DMD this way. What has my life done
