PAYDAY: The Heist Today

GameSpy has word that the Windows edition of PAYDAY: The Heist is expected today via Steam, which will offer the chance to rob some banks in this first-person shooter that's already available on the PlayStation Network. Here's a reminder of what this game is about:
PAYDAY: The Heist is a premier quality downloadable game designed to deliver a unique spin on the First Person Shooter genre. As an intense, gritty and unapologetic episodic co-operative shooter, PAYDAY is packed with cocky attitude, epic Hollywood-inspired action and endless replayability.With six action-packed heists to complete at launch, players embark on a spectacular crime tour of heists, including shooting their way through a downtown bank vault robbery, trading hostages in an armored car hijacking and even a moonlit infiltration of a high-security headquarters.

I believe 2 of the 6 can only be played on a minimum of Hard, won't even let you choose Normal difficulty.

A friend gifted this to me last night and I needed a break from Dark Souls so I spent a few minutes with it getting things setup. So are they planning more scenarios as DLC or how is that going to work? I only saw 6 in the base game.

I remember them saying that more heists will be sold as DLC. Considering the core game is only 20 bucks and I played only 1 heist last night for 4 hours, I am very inclined to pick up the extra ones as long as they aren't too overpriced.

BTW, if you want to play with someone who you will make you look like a pro by comparison, send "Prez" (with the Punisher avatar like up in the corner) an invite. I'll be around tonight and all weekend.

And that four hours (5 for me) was only on normal mode......

I played the 2nd and 3rd missions. The 2nd is holy hell hard and the 3rd is rather simple with lots of choke points, but lots of armoured dudes.

If you guys keep mentioning Heat I'm gonna be forced to buy this.

And I don't even think it looks that good, looks like it's got that watered down L4D gunplay thing happening.

Okay, I took the bait. I'm now downloading PAYDAY. If anybody fancies a laugh (the private kind, I don't have a mic!) look for sNiPEY on Steam. I'm the one with the baby in a helmet with the Arnie quote. 96% done...

Sounds good Prez, we've got a 3 man crew who all know each other in IRL so we'll take you as our fourth if you're around. Just be forewarned that most of us can recite Heat from memory so it will most likely be a disaster filled with memes and movie quotes

Had an awesome time playing with Krovven and Batman - game is a blast and really requires good team coordination. It has very similar mechanics to L4D (a good thing imo) but has an awesome Heist movie mood. Every time I break into the vault and start bagging up giant stacks of cash I feel like Tom Sizemore in heat during their big heist. Highly recommended game, especially so at the bargain price.

I'm keeping my eyes peeled on this one. If/when they sort out the bugs I may well dive on to the bandwagon. It sounds like it may potentially be a lot of fun, and it sounds like they're taking an active stance in dealing with it. Both big pluses in my book.

Unplugged my Saitek USB keyboard, plugged in a wireless Logitech kb, now it works. wtf.

Still using my Razer Diamondback mouse....

I do have to give them credit - they have 2 employees who have been in the steam forums all night and it is currently 4am there and they are helping people. Pretty nice of them. They said they are looking at a patch in the next day.

So a little misunderstanding with Mouse 0 and Mouse 1, unbound everything and then did my proper bindings. Everything is good now. Game plays great, so far lots of fun.

The USB and keybinding issues suck, but the game itself is an absolute blast. Very fun! Normally I would have waited a few days but I got in on a 4-pack so I am an early adopter - so yeah, there's some launch day woes. Things should be fine in a few days.

As I said in Steam chat...I don't see it bound to anything on my list. Mouse 1 and 3 are, but not 2.

Gonna start looking for a config, been kinda distracted playing with my new iphone 4s while messing with Payday

I was able to change Mouse2 to walk forward - it was bound to something else. Had to unbind first.

First impression...I cant change my keybinds to Mouse 2 for Forward and there is literally no video options except Resolution.

Save your money until post patch if either of these problems are important to you.

Add another game to the fucked up launch list for 2011.

EDIT: Wow, now there is customer service. I sent an email and got a response from the Exec Producer in 5min.

(5 minutes ago)
Hi there, I'm sure you are getting tons of emails from PC users today, and I apologize for contributing to that.

I can't play the game because I cannot bind Mouse 2 to Walk Forward, among other keys. I've been using this configuration since Quake, as have thousands of other people.

I hope you make custom key/mouse binds a priority for the first hotfix/patch, as you have crippled thousands by having very restrictive key rebinds.

thanks,
Krovven

FYI - if you quit the game and try and play again - it will crash.
