I played through story, can't remember how many times I died the first play through.
Played through it again, without running out of continues (used about 7-8)
I cannot seem to get very far in arcade, I keep dying on the second stage.
I have been promoted to Master Sergeant. Currently aiming for the "survive 200 sec w/o being hit"
At almost 7 hours of game play I don't seem to be improving as much as before.
I think I am just not killing enough enemies to keep my time up or something.
Just looking for any advice to bring my skill to the next level.

-Either practice up learning bullet patterns like mad, or choose a character with a bullet eating special weapon (ytoo is my favourite) This helps in a pinch, reflect works well too.
-Right at the beginning you're pretty vulnerable and underpowered, try to kill as much as possible and power up quickly to keep your time up.
-Getting hit really hurts in Arcade, almost game ending on most occasions. For high scores you need to avoid using powers and sub weapons, but for just getting through while you are learning don't be shy of using them both to avoid the painful 10 second penalty for hits
Otherwise just practice, practice, practice!
Good luck and keep on striving to improve :thumbsup:
