      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

  1. Scape I think your friends and your crew is skewing your perspective on the Halo games. Halo certainly didn't get popular due to the esports scene. The first one revolutionized how a FPS controlled on a console. It was a massive hit for multiple reasons, all centered around the fact that no FPS had ever controlled as wonderfully as Halo did on a console. People played the campaign in 1 dozens of times, and for some people that was all they needed or wanted from it. But then there was the fact that you could LAN the game, which was a huge deal on college campuses where you could play against people on your floor in a lot of (most?) cases. It's the only game I've ever seen that could consistently get people who didn't really play games all that much haul TVs, Xbox's and a bunch of controllers to a place where you could LAN, even if you didn't have a college dorm to ease that process. People were justifiably disappointed in 2's campaign, but that game's multiplayer was a smash hit, and probably single-handedly made Xbox Live a viable platform for MS. Sure, people eventually played it professionally, but that wasn't what spurred its popularity. And I still know people who all they wanted from Halo was to co-op campaign the game over and over. I didn't get into the series really until 3, which for my money was maybe the best balanced game in the series. But I think the general perception among the most ardent Halo fans is that 4 and 5 are average at best, and not even really average for Halo games...just average. Halos 1-3 are impressive titles that can probably be held up as some of the more important games of the last 25 years or so. I'm partial to Reach, but it certainly did start to hit diminishing returns at that point. I can speak to Halo 4, and that game's campaign is just kinda bad. I had a lot of messy lag and hitchiness with the multiplayer in it as well, and did not really enjoy the new modes they added (not to mention the stuff they took away). I'm not trying to say your feelings on 4-5 are invalid. But I think you're off on what people liked about the earlier games, and I think you are in the overwhelming minority thinking 4-5 are even in the ballpark of at least 1-3.
  2. Oh don't get me wrong I wasn't saying Destiny was this masterpiece. I'm massively disappointed in Destiny. I played vanilla and didn't give them any more money after that because I felt ripped off by the game. I think what they first put out was a glorified demo. But certain things about the game are world class and unmatched by any dev (at least on consoles). I think it is the best feeling FPS gameplay of any (console) game ever. The game obviously had a troubled development though, and then they ran out of time and had to put out that turd. And I'm just always sitting back wondering what Bungie could create if they hadn't promised this 10 year cycle of a single game. Ironic cuz they left MS in part because they were tied down to Halo there. Anyway... I haven't heard many people say Halo 5 is a better Halo than Bungie ever made (in fact, I was kinda shocked to see that claim lol). I haven't played it (4 was my last one), but I think you're in the minority there.
  3. Yup. Always found even the beloved sonic games to be mediocre at best.
  4. Yeah but that's not bungie right? i think bungie has lost some important people, but for my money they are one of the most talented developers in the world. It's a shame they hitched their wagon to destiny for such a long time commitment.
  5. Reviews for SF 2 are looking pretty poopy. And Jesus I didn't know it was $40.
  6. I thought Reach was awesome. On par with anything they had done.
  7. Restarted Bloodborne so probably that. Recently beat BOTW but will pry go back and find more shrines. Maybe a little Mario Kart. Busy weekend though so won't have a ton of game time.
  8. Always been interested in the series, but have been too intimidated to get in by myself. Have a group of friends that plays, but they aren't very patient in terms of teaching you the game. If it plays well solo I would bite.
  9. Is there a sonic cycle for NBA Live now?
  10. Got it free on PS+. Played a little. There was definitely something to it, but I couldn't get into it.
  11. I guess so!
  12. I get that the DS4 may be better, but I've never seen anyone refer to the PS3's as terrible.
  13. To me, I don't see any tangible difference between the PS3 and PS4 ones. And I don't particularly care for the Switch pro controller one (tho it is way better than the joy con one)
  14. What are your fave d-pads?
  15. Really? I've always found them to be pretty good.
