So I bought this game after talking about in the shout box for a few minutes. So far it's been pretty fun, but I've got to admit that while it's not the harest game I've played, it is a bit more difficult than I'm used to. I've been dying a lot, which is OK. I'm also still fairly early on in the game. I think I've just killed my second or third "boss", as an idea on how far I've gotten.
Anyone got some tips and whatnot? What's the deal with all the notes I see on the ground? Some of them are helpful, such as warnings, but most seem to be fairly useless (I see a lot of "I did it!"). I plan to trade this in and buy Dark Souls II once that's released. Not sure if I'll get the PC version and just buy a controller for that, or if I'll get it on the PS3. I'm thinking I might enjoy PC + controller better, so does anyone have a recommended controller I should get for my computer?
