Xbox 360 controller analog stick
I'm playing this game using a 360 controller, and I notice that sometimes when I'm walking left and let go of the analog stick, the character keeps moving very slowly. I imagine this is just a glitch in the game that has to do with the high sensitivity of movement, since if you barely touch the stick the guy moves. However, it only happens in the left direction. If I play around enough, I can get it to happen to the right, but not as easily. It's a brand new controller and I tested it on other games and haven't had any issues, but I'm very anal when it comes to this stuff and am wondering if I should exchange the controller. Anyone else notice this?

Yes, this is happening to me as well. Just when walking left.

I've mostly noticed it as drifting to the right, but I doubt it's a specific direction -- could be random, or affecting all directions and left/right just being a lot more noticeable than up/down because the game has a lot more left/right than up/down movement (except for falling down. But I don't need a stick to fall into a black hole).

Controllers, even new ones, aren't perfectly balanced, and so will show a tendency to drift to one side when the sticks are "centered". Normally consoles apply a deadzone, wherein the first 5% or so of the input range is rejected for this very reason, but if you're using the "xpad" driver, (which if you simply plugged in a wired 360 controller without configuring anything at all, that is what you're using), it does not setup these deadzones by default.

My suggestion is to install, learn, and use xboxdrv. It allows you to set custom deadzones, as well remap the controls for those games that don't properly map controllers.
