I am just messing around at this point (i killed 3rd boss just now) and i even found a shield. Holy shit is the world confusing.... so i use the co-op guy more to show me where to go then anything. I am also glad to see that 3/4 of players managed to kill the first boss (as the trophy list shows). Well done modern gamers! DS 1 is the one where i used co-op a bit during the middle to see how that would work as these games aren´t build for that at all.
I gave my avatar a crazy long ponytail so he looks like a bishonen version of me.
I still fall to those cheap jump scares even if I redid a certain point already. The ambience is amazing though. I can't play this quietly because I usually "lol nope!!" out of my way towards the exit. The only RE experience I had were those mini arcades and Resident Evil 5.
