When you learn to play with the lock on system (do ar undo depending your needs) it gets better.
So bad you dont have Live, that place is usually filled with peple helping and PvPing.
Yeah for Ornstein I usually try to lock onto him sometimes when he flies across the room at me. When I'm in a corner, the camera being locked can usually lead to death in NG+
I usually keep moving in a clockwise pattern, but maybe I should avoid the outer edges.
Rolling instead of blocking sometimes helps me a lot.
I did buy an Xbox live gold account a few days ago. It's mostly a waste for me since I only play maybe 2 games a year and don't use any Xbox 360 services. $25 for 3 months isn't too bad though. I actually went 75% of the way through Dark Souls with no online access. I think the Crystal Cave would have been twice as easy!
I hate the idea of calling help, but I might do that eventually. Don't you get humanity from helping someone beating bosses? I can't call a NPC until I get more humanity. I don't think I can get any in Anor Londo without leaving.
I still haven't done any PVP things..I need to. Online players are usually 1000x better than me. At least in 1st person shooters.
Oh and to make matters worse..my controllers shield button has been sticking a lot. That doesn't make it even easier. At random my shield would go down. Since i'm rolling a lot more for ornstein, it's not needed as much.
BTW sometimes on the way to Ornstein those silver knights go nuts on me. I swear that sometimes I kill them without a single issue and then the next time one actually kills me. SOMEHOW. Zweihander is very good for them though and so is Black Knight Halberd+5.
I kindled the bonfire near the bosses to save me some time.
I'm sure most people have no issues with these guys, but it's officially the hardest boss (for me) in any game i've encountered. Even worse than the Grim Reaper from Castlevania I think in NG I would have killed them several times by now..
Have any Dark Souls fans played FFXI? I think there's some stuff in there that is way tougher. Even soloing as Beastmaster in that game was more difficult at lower levels. I was just probably terrible at it. The game is much easier now. In that game you also lose experience if you die. You know... I don't want to imagine what an MMORPG of Dark Souls would be like.
I wasted so much of my life in Final Fantasy Online that I'll never play any more MMORPGs!
