I've never played the Souls games. I know they're extremely hard, and I'm not the best gamer out there, but I've always had an interest in the series.

What can I expect? Tips/info appreciated here as I know very little about this game.

If it takes you 50 hit to kill someone it means that you don't have a weapon on you.

Be patient, it's not hard at all.

It's about time really. If you can manage to dodge properly, you'll be fine.

Shield up. Go slow. Roll roll roll.

Well so far I've died 4 times to the first boss. The first two I didn't realize I had to jump off the ledge before he destroyed it. The third time I did the special attack, then promptly got obliterated. The last time I realized it's safest to attack from behind, but when he had less than a hair left on his health bar, he killed me. I'm finding the camera to be a bit of a headache. I try to run circles around him to avoid his forward attacks, but half the time I can't see a damn thing.

As established, I had a weapon.

Just gotta be patient TC. You'll die a few times, don't forget you can summon folks around you to help you out through bosses and tough areas.
