    I got to the Pontiff guy yesterday, and got repeatedly smashed in three hits. Reload, run back, die, repeat. I'd been enjoying exploring and this was no fun, so I summoned some mates and sorted him out. If it's all going to be stupidly tough boss fights I might be out soon, shame as I really enjoy the world. But having to instantly identify attacks and perform dozens of perfectly timed rolls in a row is not my idea of fun. (Luckily I have 20 embers, so will be calling in the cavalry for a while yet!)

    I've just been going through the cathedral having skipped on and done a couple of alternative areas. This means I have a great big sword and and taking my revenge on the knights in there. There's great joy in biffing them in the shield until they're stunned. How do you like it matey? Felt like a really long trek to get back to a bonfire, was getting quite tense. Loving this game now, although I'm sure that'll change when I get stuck on a boss. Have bought DS1 in sale too follow up with later, hopefully I won't give up on it again now I've more of an idea how to fight.

    Thanks, shall clear our the baddies around there and then waste a couple of embers trying him. Tomorrow's plan is set.

    I got killed repeatedly by the abyss watcher last night, did him second time this morning, a break definitely works. Just remembered I got invaded in the catacombs by some red guy even though I'm playing offline. Went back and he was nowhere to be seen. Is it worth going back and using and ember, or did I mess up and it's too late? Had about half an inch of health and he just whacked me with his massive sword.

    I'm getting into this now, walking around being scared is kind of fun. Not sure I'm any good yet but perseverance is taking me a little way. Have put some levels into strength and moved from the katana to the claymore which is now Heavy+3. I can stab things real nice! New list of dead things - tree, wizard, abyss watcher (with a lot of help from my red-eyed friends). That involved a lot of running in circles in the first phase (very macho) and then having a palpitations during the latter stages as his health bar slowly dribbled away. That took a fair few attempts. Now exploring the catabombs and getting very lost, I'm sure missing so much. Found some big doors but was too scared to open them, went and got killed by a fire dragon instead. Have since been back and bashed him up though. Have a new type of titanite so have to decide whether to use that on my claymore or try out something else. Or do I transmute something new? So many chouces, so few large titanite shards. Also noticed this morning that according to the travel screen the catacombs are after the cathedral. I've not even been in there yet, there's just so much to explore. About 20 hours played, not sure if that's slow but with all the boss repeats the time soon adds up.

    Finally a bit of progress! I'm using a katana now as I have the Dex for it, the Claymore is beyond me at the moment. Haven't managed to parry anything since the tutorial so the new tactic is to roll through baddies when they attack and then engage a little something I call operation stabby-stab-stab. Big frosty thing at the wall is dead, it's a start

    Just spent about half an hour getting murdered by that knight, I'm going to call it training. Took him down four or five times in the end, before finally going the right way to find a bonfire after him. Hopefully the start of me getting gud. Gotta stay calm, I'm a button masher.

    Thanks for the advice, I started as a mercenary with the idea if being quick and nimble. My equip load looks okay at the mo. Will try getting closer to the Knight guy next time, it's all good practice. I was trying to wait until he'd finished his flurry of moves before stepping in for an attack. Sadly I still get too excited when I land a blow and hammer the attack button. Must learn some self control!

    Just started this, I bounced off of DS1 on the Xbox years ago so hopefully this time I'll get somewhere. Not got far yet, just legged it past a nasty looking dragon on the wall only to get battered by a knight. Took him down on about the fifth time of asking and then... ran away to trade in my souls! I think keeping the right distance to enemies is key, am I right? If I roll around he spins on the spot and when I stand up it's stabbing time Also the "tutorial" boss took me about 20 attempts and I had to look up advice on what to do as apparently I want getting close enough. Am I a bit rubbish and destined to get a good pasting?
  10. Hurrah, just in time for Christmas. I have me nephews over (4 and 7), I reckon they'll love this.
  11. Never heard of it, shall go adventuring instead of smashing the controller any more. Thanks!
  12. Can you pop it in a spoiler please? It might just be that I'm a bit shit. If I don't have it I'll wander about some more.
  13. Any tips for the ? I can kill one or two but googled how many I have to do, WTF!? Was really enjoying this but have hit a dead end, I wish you could reduce the difficulty for a while.
  14. It took forever to install star wars, update all the things and download the vr mission, I was getting thoroughly peevish. So worth it!
  15. Thanks for the advice, will order. Plan is to lie profusely about the cost! Maybe if I get everything delivered to work I can claim the moves are included in the price?
