I just reached 999 with Sly last night. I imagine Spike will be next for me, unless I find another character that I suddenly take a liking to.
Was it hard to get 999 with Sly considering he can't block? I like him but, I'm more of a combo person and Nariko just fits my style. I want to start using someone else but, I don't want to use Raiden, Kratos, or Dante because I'm not that great with any of them.
