However, if I do get it, it'll certainly be on PC.
The only way to properly experience a Bethesda game. Mods and all that jazz.

Both are quite easy. With Capra you can use the Fog Ring (if you have it) and the dogs won't even see you at all. If you don't have the Fog Ring then just use a shield that blocks 100% physical damage and you should be able to block Capra's attacks. You only need to deal with the first dog as well, because if you stay near the fog gate to fight Capra the second dog won't attack.
As for the Stray, use the Crest Shield you get from Oscar (the guy who gave you the Estus Flasks right at the start) as that blocks 80% magic damage, which the stray uses. The best way to fight him is to stay behind him at all times and then run in and attack when you get the chance. Baiting him into his jump/sit attack is the best way to get free hits on him, especially if he does it a few times in a row.

They were both horrible!
Capra isn't actually that hard if you know what to do. Eliminate the dogs, then just use the stairs to hit and run the Capra demon. If you can survive the first 15 seconds (which isn't easy), the rest of the fight should be a breeze.
The Stray took me ages to defeat.

^ I'm not on PS3. I'm on 360. Thinking PS4 sometime in the future, though. Maybe we can teamup in DS2.
I am a bit stuck, now. Choices are Kapra Demon, or Stray Demon in the Undead Asylum. I am not very good against either.

It took me ages to master parrying, lol. It makes it so much easier if you can parry though. I hate getting stunlocked as well, it's such a bitch.
Pity you weren't on PS3 as it would have been fun to co-op with you.

Chelskiman, I took the plunge and started playing Dark Souls. It was super cheap on XBL the other week so I bought it (along with LA Noire and State of Decay: Breakdown). I am only just now up to the Bell Gargoyles, and it has been pretty difficult. I've only recently started getting a hang of parrying/blocking in general, and not just mashing the attack button. I admit you were right, it is the good kind of punishment.
My only gripe is how annoying it is to perform a kick or jumping attack. I know it is all down to my timing, but I just wish there was a simpler way, in the middle of combat, to do these rather than accidentally step forward and start an attack, only to be killed.
Oh, no, not only gripe. I also REALLY *bleep*ING HATE GETTING STUNLOCKED INTO A CORNER. The first Bell Gargoyle killed me before I even had a chance to move from the doorway and I lost alllll my souls. I was the definition of Mad.
In other news, I bought and finished Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Far and away the best game on 3DS so far, and definitely one of the best Zelda games. Easily a 9/10 from me.

If you hold l2, you can free run as much as you want, unlike graces. With jude, if you back step as the enemy is attacking then he will pivot around to the back of the enemy.

The pivot system must come later then, because I cant do it. You can sort of circle around enemies in Graces F, is it the same in Xillia? I forget the controls and it hasn't told me that I can do it yet and I've already got the mercenary..

You can kind Pivot step around enemies with Jude which is good. Give the battle system a shot and you may like it. It takes a lot of practice to get used to because you have to remember all of the moves.

Hell Fire I've started playing Tales of Xillia. Gota say, so far I'm not a fan of the battle system. In Graces, you can sidestep, you cant in this and its frustrating

I had it from a friend years and years ago, but didn't get to play it that much. My nostalgic memory may be clouded but I remember it being really good. Although the concept is right up my alley.
