Hey all, I'm very early in the game (just died a few times to asshole-face aka: the last giant) and after already losing tens of thousands of souls, I'm contemplating restarting. I haven't levelled up yet due to my wondrous ability to die often to just about everything (I've played the first Dark Souls game as well and only managed to beat Seath after around 120 hours of gameplay - I'm just really bad at games), and I've noticed that enemies in some areas are starting to disappear. What are your thoughts regarding restarting early on? Is it just better for me to tough it out because there's probably many others who have lost just as many, if not more, souls? Or is the lack of acquirable souls and my lack of ability something which could compound and make the game much worse/unplayable later on?
Just to clarify, this isn't in order to have an advantage at online play (I play without internet because I feel complete isolation adds a lot to the atmosphere of the game). How were the early stages of the game for you? Did you ever feel like restarting would be a choice?
