I've been playing inFamous since PSN gave it away for free. I've been getting the hang of the game but, I've died quite a few times, generally by charging headlong into overwhelming force. I can usually get a few kills before I'm overwhelmed, I die, and then I rush right back into it. I'm wondering what happens to that XP that I gained from the kills before I died. Does it apply instantly, or only at the end of a misson ?.
Alternatively, the question could also be phrased "Is it to my long-term benefit to die many times per mission so that I can grind XP for killing the same creeps over and over when I restart?"
