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.

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.
