Still stuck on the first two bosses, I think my locking the camera on the bridge boss caused me to die due to poor camera positioning.  I'm in the process of farming up blood vials and echos to try again, not sure what level I'm at now but still can't upgrade weapons which I figure is locked until I get past at least one of these two.  Father G seemed doable but I ran out of vials and he moves so fast, got him down to half on first try.  Maybe we need to come up with a MP password for GT'ers if we are playing at the same time and want to co-op.  I put forth Gtrend as an option for the password.

Nevermind misread at first.

You need an item before you can upgrade weapons.  Cleric Beast I think is easier to tackle first, what was your starting weapon?

I defeated Cleric my first attempt and since then hit a brick wall with Father G. Tried ringing a bell twice for help but no one ever joins. frown

I started with the Hunter Axe and found a Saw Spear but I don't like it too much, low dmg.  I think I need to buy lots of molotov's and upgrade my endurance so I can swing and dodge a bit more.  One thing I might change is to not use the two hand version of the axe so much, uses lots of endurance but then again I don't like having to get so close to the beast to hit it with the one hand version.

I really love the From level design, even though I'm struggling with the two bossed I've managed to open shortcuts that make the run back fairly quick.

Use the axe one handed.  You should be able to trade some blows with him and come out ahead with regain.

Just got him, one handed was the right choice and I managed to stagger him three times with molotov's which helped with the damage.  Whew, onward!

Father G will have to wait for another day, time for work.  He stun locks me so fast when I try to melee him even once but I have a plan to work on with him, hope it helps.

5 bosses down, plus an additional one in the Chalice Dungeon.   Some weird cool shit starts going down, this game is really great.

I played for maybe a couple hours last night and so far I'm not super enthused about it.  There's nothing wrong with it, but I wasn't prepared to feel bored by this as if I had just picked up Dark Souls 2 again or something. 

I already played Dark Souls 2 as a "roll and dodge" character, barely using shields and never just sitting and blocking, so this doesn't feel super different in that way (and in fact feels worse at first blush, since it seems harder/impossible to dodge roll forward to get behind enemies than I remember). 

I'll probably have to give it more time to get deeper in and a better handle on the changes and additions, but right now it isn't giving me much motivation to play it over something else which is surprising.

The collision detection is pretty solid in this game so if you roll straight at a bad guy you will get stuck in front of them. Try rolling away or just to the right or left.

Also, for a lot of guys generally you're better of side stepping.  With the removal of the simple quick backstab getting behind them isn't generally as worthwhile.  Gun parry is very strong too.   
The game, IMO, is also way better than DS2 was.  The lore, world, and monster design are far more interesting.  Combat is a lot tighter, hitboxes are pretty dead on unlike in DS2 where they were kind of wonky.  Hitboxes were a big complaint about DS2.

Still working on second boss, got it down to about 15% left but got stun locked in a corner.  I have a strategy now that should work and I'm getting him down below 20% most times so it is only a matter of time, would love to be able to advance into newer areas soon.

Sounds like there's an avoidable progression bug the devs are looking to patch:

Quote from: Game Informer
It happens when users attempt to join a game as a co-op guest or invader using the small resonant bell or sinister resonant bell respectively while in the
Spoiler for "Game Location":
Forbidden Woods.
A hotfix is in the works right now, and those affected by the bug will have their games repaired by it.

Sony anticipates it will roll out the patch (1.02) sometime next week. For now, the company suggests that users not use those items until after the patch is available.


I spoiler-tagged the zone name in case people prefer to discover games as they play rather than be told in advance where they'll be going.  Suffice it to say that if you don't use the "small resonant bell" or "sinister resonant bell", you won't get bugged.

Well I am not as good as most at this game but the second boss is down!!! spoilers for my method
Spoiler for Hiden:
Started with the axe in two hand mode and positioned myself between Father G and tombstones.  The heavy charge up attack allowed me to spin towards him and even if the first swing didn't hit the second would.  Cue doing this over and over until the second phase starts.  I switched to the kirkhammer in two hand mode and used a girly circle run up the stairs and down the gap in the fencing to create space when I needed to heal.  I then would wait near the top of the stairs until he jump attacked me, I'd dodge, swing the hammer to stun him, get a couple of more hits in if possible then run.  Rinse repeat until dead.  In the end I had no healing left so it was a close thing at the finish.
