Totally been there with Dark Souls+small children combo, it's tough since you can't pause!
Make sure you try out all the different weapons to find what you like, they all have different move sets and can totally change your play style.
Be patient. It's real easy to get over confident in an area you already know but that's a sure-fire way to lose a huge bunch of souls. The same goes for bosses and hard enemies - be patient right until the end, resist the urge just to go for it when they're low on health. More often than not, they'll get you first.
On-topic - currently playing BATTLEGROUNDS and just got my first 2nd place game this afternoon. Super nerve-wracking, with the final 3 of us all on top of a small hill hiding behind cover. I think the 3rd place player got stuck outside the wall and died, winning player killed me just as I was shooting back. Got 3 or 4 hits in but they must have had really good armor. Tense but awesome.
Also trying out the latest Factorio update, right now just working on getting a railroad up and running to the nearest large oil field. Really like the changes so far!
