I got extremely lucky taking on these two guys my first time this morning. I tried to summon some help but the first few failed. The guy I finally summoned successfully was awesome. He was doing mega magic damage and basically took them both down by himself. I got in a few hits but not many. I felt a little guilty but I'll take it.
@forkboy: I like soccer so much I call it Football, thanks for the recommendations.
There are so many good choices already mentioned.
The best soccer/football book I have read is The Miracle of Castel Di Sangro: A Tale of Passion and Folly in the Heart of Italy by Joe McGinniss. The author spends a year with a Serie B club in Italy that was just promoted. It is a great read.
For sci fi try Old Man's War by John Scalzi.
And for a twisted thriller Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is cool.
I tried to beat him a several times a couple of weeks ago but could not get passed those dogs to make it up the stairs. After reading this thread, I am inspired to try again when I get home tonight. I am frustrated with myself for not saving at firelink shrine the first few times I tried beating this thing instead of taking the long route to get there.
