I dunno about grinding, I never needed to. Feel free to do a sidequest or two if you're that outclassed though.
Guessing I need to grind a bit before truly starting Route C? That first boss demolished me, and it honestly caught me off-guard. Also, will it be a while before I can access most shops again?
I neglected upgrading weapons/chip capacity because hacking got me comfortable, and now I'm regretting it, haha.
Yep... Lol, I love how the side quests expand on things lol
Some things make more sense now. Fucking Jean Paul, man. The other girls got off easy in comparison to the one you fight.
Speaking of, why did it seem that his name was censored whenever 9S mentioned him in the side quest?
