Seriously though I think that's the hardest boss in the game. I've finished off Seath the Scaleless and Gravelord Nito and both those fights were much easier. Although the Catacombs and Tomb of Giants were the hardest levels I've yet seen - I think I died more times in those areas than the rest of the game combined.
Yeah... First time I killed Ornstein first and after facing the "super charged" Smough I said, "Eff that noise." and I finished Smough first. After being RAPED by that ridiculous spear I went back and killed off Ornstein first again lol. I wanted that dang soul for the spear, though . Always NG+.

Speaking of NG+, I think I'm about there. But I have a bit more exploring to do in the meantime.

Yeah painted world was pretty awesome. Did you kill the boss at the end or leave her alone?

I finished the game this afternoon. I explored every area and lit all the bonfires. Used a strength oriented build with a Zweihander +15 and a Flame Claymore +10. Neither of those weapons scale with stats very well, if at all, so I'm considering upgrading my Black Knight Greatsword or maybe using one of the maces. At this point it takes like 40k souls to even get a level so I'm not sure if I want to keep on doing NG+ (finished the first bell and Capra demon) or start over with a different build. I didn't use any magic first time around so that might be a fun option.

One thing I noticed about this game is the online aspect seems to be a lot less prominent. Granted I spent most of my time hollowed but reviving and carrying a lot of humanity with you is basically just asking to lose it and the benefit of being able to call other players was kind of unnecessary since it either trivializes the bosses or your coop players end up killing themselves. Either way leaving a soulsign down to farm a boss is kind of fun, at least when you actually get summoned.

Covenants seem to exist mainly for multiplayer so maybe next time around I'll focus more on them. I didn't really use any of the beneficial items they give you.

Seath's pretty easy when you figure his pattern out. He only breathes at the distance you're standing when he starts his animation (he kinda swirls his head around) so stay away from him, once he starts breathing dash in close and get a few hits in, then run back out to avoid the close breath. Shouldn't take too long.

Did you manage to break off one of his tails? You get the Moonlight sword but I never could manage to break one off; the other dragons were pretty easy to break their tails.

So this game mirrors real life. Our quest in life is to get a piece of tail. Man this game really is realistic.

Wait till you meet the giant boob lady.

Progressing through NG+ surprisingly easily. I beat Ornstein and Smough again only this time I summoned Solaire because screw that fight. Killed Gravelord Nito. Some of the bosses are actually a good deal easier in NG+ because I have fully upgraded weapons and a ton of health with good armor and shields. Nito was so easy I only had to heal once.
