After hearing some good hype surrouding this game I finally gave in and bought this today.

I'm usually good at video games, will I really get destroyed if I go in blind? That would be awesome.

go blind and you'll really appreciate it later on. Just really pay attention to what NPC's say and they'll give you a lot of hits many people miss / don't remember later on in the game when you need that information.

Go in totally blind dude. You'll have a blast, BUT don't try to rush through, there's a chance you'll rush into a boss, lose, rush straight back and just keep losing, lots of bosses you should watch their attacks and try to avoid instead of blocking.

I'll also say consider utilizing the summon system fully, it makes the game a lot more fun, summoning wingmen in constantly to help you out

Honestly, try to go in blind if you can. It is an experience you can only have once and the game is absolutely amazing on 1st playthrough.

I'll say just one thing.

When you reach Firelink GO UP if you see ghosts or skeletons turn around you're not supposed to be there.

Other than that go blind and if you turn human before Anor Londo expect to get killed unless you have some help.

Good Luck!
