@NESlover85 Congrats! Once you beat Ornstein and Smough, you can beat the rest of the game.

I just finished the game on a new character. This time on these NG+ cycles, I'm gonna try for a hybrid of Pyromancy and a dragon greatsword. This is gonna be fun lol.

Huh? Unless you're using motion controls, which is entirely optional, I have no idea what difference you expect....

well about the analogist stick, I know this is a game where fine movement is important, especially against very fast bosses

Oh, right... I managed to complete the game in handheld mode, personally & I'd never played a Dark Souls game before, so....

@aresius Put it this way: Dark Souls is a series you can comfortably beat bosses on a keyboard with only one hand with the right setup.

Joy-Cons are perfectly fine.

I just picked this up last week and pleasantly surprised how good it looks and how well it plays on Switch especially handheld mode. I first played it on PS3 years ago whenever it first released but never got very hard and quit due to overwhelming frustration. But then a year or so ago I picked up Bloodborne and fell in love with it, despite not having beat it yet, so I figured I'd give Dark Souls another shot and so glad I did. I got a bit further than I did back in the day, and it's just a really fun game. It is frustrating for sure but it's so satisfying when you win.

Currently trying to tackle the Capra Demon. Went with Halberd as my main weapon, can't decide which kind of armor I want. I wanted to "tank" the game but the trade off in slowness when wearing heavier armor is just not worth it it seems, so currently going with the black leather thief armor.

@AstralOrange I highly recommend playing DS1 like Bloodborne in the sense of dodging into attacks, running fast rolls, and going for max DPS (for the most part, have a shield ready for some attacks).

Capra Demon can be annoying though. Dogs are the hardest part of that fight.

So i’ve been playing this again, got quite a bit further and explored what I think is all of Blight town; I guess you can never be certain. I enjoyed it quite a lot, heard bad stories about it but it was fun for me, no horrendous frame rate helps, i’m sure. Found a new path and a Fire Keeper Soul! Which would have been great news if she also didn’t die, the fire keeper that is... I hope this event was triggered and not me screwing things up lol.

Edit: Wait, what!? I can’t rest at the bonfire anymore because of the Fire Keeper being absent. Yikes!

It took me about 20 attempts to down the Capra Demon last night but I managed to do it. I managed to get lucky since the dogs kind of got stuck in a corner and I was easily able to take them out. Capra by himself was relatively easy though. DS1 is definitely harder than BB (I think so at least) but just as enjoyable.

@AstralOrange Eh, DS1 is kinda easier imo because it wasn't as balanced around 2h and fast rolls, meaning you can decimate bosses and enemies before they have any idea of what's gonna come. Bosses are also way easier to read, and have much less health and attack patterns to see. Bloodborne does have way higher DPS than any Souls game, but it's also kinda balanced around that to a slight degree (gems from Chalice Dungeons don't help though).

@AstralOrange I feel your pain. The Capra Demon was, for me, a real pain. When I finally beat it, I had the smallest sliver of health you can possibly imagine. It was actually not even visible, and I thought I had died and was cursing the screen - until I realised I could still move my character around.

I died hundreds of times during my playthrough, but most of the other bosses took me fewer tries than the Capra Demon. I beat it in the end, though. Many thanks to the human player who helped me bring down Ornstein and Smough on only my third try!

So far Capra was the hardest thing in the game for me. I've heard about that Ornstein & Smough fight and I can't say I'm looking forward to it. I'm just glad I gave this game another shot after writing it off for being too hard. It's definitely harder than I normally like my games but the game is brilliant and it's a good learning experience too.

The main fire keeper dying is avoidable. But it's not really worth avoiding. You should get a "Black Eye Orb" from her cell when she dies.
You can use that in Anor Londo to get her Fire Keeper Soul back. At which point you can either revive her, or use it to strengthen your Estus Flask.

There are 3 fire keepers in the game. So you need to keep 1 alive and preferably kill the other 2 to get their souls.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

So I have one of these moments where I don’t feel like playing any game but this one. But it’s been a while and I’m not sure if the game told me where to go or if I should just go places. Last thing I remember is Anor Lando and beating the duo boss and get rewarded with a pair of holy jugs(which allowed me to teleport?).

Oh, and meeting quite the mysterious character at fire link shrine, with who I went down and up again. I don’t remember what I gained from that. Catacombs still seems impossible, like “you need a special weapon or something impossible”

Any pointers without too much spoil?

@Spanjard

Things open up completely at that point. There are 4 main 'dungeons' you have to do to get the "Lord Souls", then there's the Artorias DLC, and then the Painted World and Ash Lake optional areas (that you might have already done but probably haven't). You can do any of these things in any order now.

The best of those are by far are the Artorias DLC and the Painted World, so I'd do those first if I were you.
Artorias is tough so maybe do the Painted World first to level up. The Painted World is a magical world hidden inside a giant painting in Anor Londo. To get inside you need an item from the Undead Asylum, the place where you started the entire game. To get back to the Asylum, you need to find your way up to the giant crow at the Firelink Shrine. He'll take you back.

Alternatively if you want to do the 4 Lord Souls first, they are located:

Dukes Archives: the tower up on the hill that you can see from the entrance to Anor Londo. You should be able to figure out the route from there.
New Londo Ruins: dark place with lots of water and ghosts that you probably saw quite early on. Very near to Firelink Shrine.
Tomb of the Giants: the place after you get through the catacombs. If you want to easily beat skeletons you need a Divine weapon. That stops them respawning.
Demon Ruins: deep below the ground with a lot of fire and lava. You saw the entrance earlier on when you'd just beat a boss that used a lot of fire attacks.

@Dezzy I actually found my way to the crow pretty early on which was a neat experience. But I got absolutely smashed when I got back there and so I decided to return later.
Yesterday I completed the area with the cat(optional I guess?). Today I went back to Anor Lando and to my surprise one of the before closed gates was now open. This area has one of the games intro legends as a boss. Died a couple of times, not sure what to do yet, can’t seem to reach him.

If the DLC is the best I’d rather save it for later I think. Like after main quest, as long as the game doesn’t end immediately. I’m kinda surprised at how many bosses I have beaten first try. I feel like my char is a bit overpowered, combine that with an overpowered weapon and this not being my first Souls, it’s maybe not that surprising.
