I looked over the key bindings in the menu, but stuff like 'rolling attack' and 'kicking' and 'plunge attack' is only explained in ingame tutorial messages - with XBox controls. Might go buy an Xbox controller today, along with Guild Wars 2, to celebrate my 6 days of freedom from work.  8) But if the PvP turns out to be annoying I'll just play offline mode.

Supposedly playing in Covenant of the White (I started with it as a cleric) protects from PvP to a degree, as well.

PvP is annoying, but generally because you're not prepared for it.  It's not a big deal, though.  Hell, there's a few scripted NPC invasions I try to grab every time.
Any questions, comments, or condemnations to an eternity of fiery torment?

And I just bought a cyborg rumble pad and... it's not working. Whenever I plug it in, my character starts running left and nothing convinces her to stop. The directional commands of the pad don't react, though the other buttons work. What the hell?  :-\

It auto-updated the drivers, so that shouldn't be the issue...

I believe I'll be grey-haired long before I finish the game. It's much harder to properly control it than it is to beat the bosses.

Heh, I did recommend you get an actual 360 pad.

A quick google search came up with a few people who managed to get that pad working by using this controller emulator, but if that doesn't work then I haven't got a clue.

I'm no tinkerer, I have no idea how to get actual console pads to work with a PC.  :( My computer knowledge is very limited.

There are some step by step instructions over here.  I'd offer to troubleshoot for you if you have any issues after this, but without a PC copy of the game and one of those pads it isn't really possible.

It does the same thing with X3, I'm starting to think it's a faulty cyborg module (the part of the pad that has the L-analog stick and the directional pad on it). It's supposedly possible to remove and turn it, so the analog stick / directional pad is up or down, whichever way feels more comfortable. But the module appears to be stuck and cannot be removed. And yeah, it keeps firing in the left direction without being prompted to do so. Yay. I suppose I'll take it to the store on monday and play GW2 until then.

It would do.  Most modern PC games use xinput, whereas it appears that pad uses directinput so it isn't surprising things are going a bit weird.  Just try an emulator first and see if that fixes your issue.  I just tried it with Motionjoy on the missus' PC and that fixed the issue in under a minute :)

Full instructions here.

You won't get invaded if you're not in human form. That's one way to avoid it.
And there was some dwarf smoking spice, and I thought that was so scandalous because I'd only been playing in 'nak.

Even when doing a test with the emulator, every button except the faulty ones mentioned react properly. I really think it's a hardware issue. Bleh. I might just keep playing with the keyboard and return this pad, hopefully I'll get my money back.

WHERE THE FUCK IS THE DOTA 2 THREAD BRADLEY? YOU AREN'T GETTING YOUR GORRAM KEYS, MOFO.
And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."

I still think the best closure you get in Armageddon is just moving on to the next character.

(yes I preordered it)
Paint on a mustache and be a dude for a day. Stuff some melons down my shirt, cinch up a corset and pass as a girl.

With appropriate roleplay of course.

I just beat Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.

This looks really interesting, very Armageddon-esque: http://www.lofigames.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=46&Itemid=66

You can try a demo off Desura. Once you do that it won't be so interesting. You'll realize it's another crazy person releasing broken software with big promises.

It's another crazy person taking on a crazy challenge.  There's a lot of potential in Kenshi and while I think he's in with a fair chance of making this a great game in time, there is a possibility he won't.  It's definitely good for a few hours of play at present.

I got quickly bored with it. Love the concept, but it's not very complete yet. If the guy is willing to work on it I'd throw him $10 to galvanize him.

Man. I need to stop playing Dark Souls. It makes me mad.

Darkroot covenant is dumb. So dumb. Level 25 guy with a Balder Side Sword against a level 200 wreckmaster and his buddy, butt-blaster? Naw. NAW.

Oh well, it's like, my eighth character.

I don't know if we are allowed to specify whether or not we're in the beta yet so I won't tell you whether I am or not  ;), but based on the current state of the game, they are going to have to put in some serious overtime to get it ready for their targeted December release.

Try a lightning mirdan hammer in PVP, bra. Practically every hit with a mirdan hammer reels the enemy.

I haven't played in a week or two. Did they ever get around to adding the other continents like Smedley, Lord of Lies said they would?
