Cheers!

The UI is a bit consolized and there are a few small problems like having to press enter instead of being able to just click on an option, and having to use Page Up and Page Down to scroll text rather than being able to use the scroll wheel or arrow keys, but as far as the gameplay goes, it doesn't feel consolized to me. In any case, it's a really great game and totally worth what I paid for it.

And yes, you can use a gamepad.

I agree that its just the Menu systems that feel a bit consolized, however the gameplay does not.

Hi, my name is Kyle, and I am addicted *sniff* to Borderlands. *breaks out in tears*

Now with that said, I just hit 31 and killed a Rakk Hive (you'll have fun when you guys get there, if you haven't). I've got a shitload of corrosive weapons (my main sniper, revolver, SMG and 5 shot rocket launcher are what I have equipped, all corrosive) and this game just keeps getting more and more interesting.

I love the game so far, but it doesn't seem to be mod friendly... imagine all the opportunities!

Yes, the menus are a little cumbersome. The sell and buy menu is the worst part, to me. Here is one thing I found; if you click an item with the mouse to sell it you have to click OK with the mouse. Howerver, if you hit enter to sell it you can hit enter again to select OK. This really helps when loading up on ammo or dumping loot at a vendor. Kinda broken but not really a big deal.

Actually not true!

If you click the item with the mouse, you have to hit enter twice in order to hit "ok".

It's faster doing it than using the mouse to hit ok as well.

Just bind the enter button to your mouse key in your mouses software and the menu system becomes way easier hehe

It would prevent less "cheating" as well by duplicating your accounts

Anywho, here's what I came up with in the last few days.
My Fearsome volcano is currently on lend to a friend. The first 4 are my primary weapons right now for playthrough 2

5-8K Dmg crits depending on the classmod I'm using. PEW PEW PEW
