No spoilers here, just a warning.

If you plan to play on PC and use mouse/keyboard, make sure you remove any controllers from your PC before you start the game for the first time.

I had a controller plugged in when I first ran the game, and it kind of locked the game into a controller priority mode, which I couldn't find any way to turn off. So all the prompts, early game hints etc where showing controller buttons rather than keys which makes it really hard to learn the controls (have to keep referencing the key bindings screen).

So I thought I'd 'restart' the game, and used the steam 'Remove Local Content' option, thinking it would just remove local settings/data files etc, NOT THE WHOLE BLINKING GAME!@@332. So had to redownload the 17GB again...

Aw man. That's awful.  Well enjoy it now man! Glad to know you're a souls fan. Praise it!

I got it last night for the nextbox if you need any backup. Although I'm a little out of my element since my character spawned with a mace.

I just got to the tree last night, I only got to play for about two hours before I had to get off. I haven't beat it yet, but I have only had one attempt. Any tips besides hit the fungus?

So I found out the controller thing is normal, they just basically haven't supported pc controls with the in game button hints.

In any case, I can't even beat the first boss  >:(

Pffft coop is for the weak xD just soloed the Abyss Watchers and that was truley a nasty fight. Also the Watchdogs of Farron is my favourite covenant since those who tresspass deserve to be slain xD

So far I felt that the deacons of the deep was an underwhelming fight once you catch on you can do it easily. Took me a 2 attempts the first was death by curse which was easy to avoid.

Alright, so, I updated my graphics card driver, and can now play the game at a steady 20+fps, so I can actually play it now! Huzzah!
