I've tried searching for this, but was unfortunate. Can your buddies die during missions?
If so - do they die permanently and am I banned from using them in the future? I saw a Tweet (I suppose it was a Tweet) from Hideo saying that they do die permanently, but it was before the game rolled out and I'm wondering how true was that. I do not mean getting killed during any missions (plot kills), if there are any.
I kind of don't want to try this out myself, maybe someone already had this?
