      D1P 2017 Charity Campaign for The Life You Can Save: $1,690 (as of September 8, 2017)   12/12/2016

      I've decided to extend our charity campaign for The Life You Can Save organizations for the entirety of 2017 so feel free to contribute at any time!  Periodically through the year, I'll have game giveaways for those who have donated to the campaign as a "thank you" for supporting this worthy endeavor!

      Welcome former GAFers!   10/21/2017

      I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome any and all "refugees" from NeoGAF who may have discovered our humble little site as a result of the ongoing "situation" over at NeoGAF.   Feel free to check us out and if you like, join our small but interesting community!

      So you're new to DayOnePatch - please read this!   10/21/2017

      First of all, a warm, hearty WELCOME to DayOnePatch - we're REALLY pleased to have you here!   I mean that most sincerely!   Our site was founded in late 2010 when a bunch of people from the IGN forums got sick and tired of IGN being IGN and decided to create a brand new community under the name BadCartridge.  We operated under that name for a few years until there was a change in ownership which resulted in a change to the current name that we have now.  Since then, we've had a couple of owners before I assumed ownership of the site in mid-2016 and here we are today.   I guess I'd better say a word or two about our rules.  Look, here's the deal:  you are probably a sentient human being with a modicum of social skills so you probably have an idea of what is acceptable to say to another sentient human being with a modicum of social skills.  If what you are about to post gives you some pause as to whether you would say in in real life, then you probably shouldn't post it.  In other words, DON'T. BE. AN. ASSHOLE.  It's not that hard!  While we have a damned fine mod team, all disciplinary actions are ultimately my decision as the Supreme High Chancellor (catchy title, eh?  I came up with it myself!) of DayOnePatch.   Now that the unpleasant stuff is over, let's talk about the great things we have.  Well, we have a very semi-regular podcast!   We LOVE having members of our community as guests on the podcast, so if you don't mind having your voice transmitted to DOZENS of people, then let us know if you'd like to be a guest.   We have a Discord server for you to chat in -real-time of if you want to use the voice-chat capabilities for games! https://discord.gg/HB8C2w3   We have a Steam Community Group! http://steamcommunity.com/groups/day1patch# Yes, I know the title still says "Bad Cartridge" and that's because Valve doesn't allow name changes to Steam groups because Valve is stupid.   But the thing that I'm most proud of is the Announcement that you see at the top of the page.  http://www.dayonepatch.com/index.php?/announcement/40-d1p-2017-charity-campaign-for-the-life-you-can-save-1690-as-of-september-8-2017/ For this year, this community has donated nearly $1,700 to organizations that are trying to improve the lives of people in the developing world.  It is a true testament to the character of the individuals of this community that they've given to this project (as well as many, many others) freely and without expectation of anything in return.  Because of this, I'm honored and humbled to be a part of this community.   In closing, we're really glad you're here (feel free to bring other friends too!) and let's have a helluva lot of fun!

  1. But by all means, tell me again about how this tax bill is all about helping the middle class. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/20/us/politics/republicans-tax-401-k.html
  2. NFL Week 6 - Happy Trails Tracy Porter

    The Bears are 2-4 and have been close in two of their other games, which is more a massive indictment of how mediocre much of the rest of the league is than a sign of any real improvement from the Bears.
  3. I got the thread title wrong actually. I'd seen graphics earlier that the FPO took 2nd, but I guess the Social Dem party passed them up?
  4. I count 43 Senators over 65, and based on the first thing that came up when I googled it, 1 in 9 Americans over 65 have Alzheimers, so....
  5. The FPO party that took 2nd basically ran entirely on an anti-immigration platform. The conservatives will have to ally with them to get a governing majority. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-41627586
  6. The percentage of the population with power actually DROPPED today
  7. 2017 MLB Season Thread

    I'm a Cubs fan, and I'm gonna say unequivocally that they had no business winning that game. The Baez passed ball where he hit Weiters in the head with his backswing and the takeout slide at 2nd that got challenged were both probably the wrong call and were both absolutely critical. Then there was the replay at 1st which appeared to be the right call but it's such a break that foot was up for like 1/1000th of a second which Rizzo still had the tag on him. Even if they hadn't won last year, nobody would ever be allowed to talk about the curse again after this game.
  8. Own goal keeps USMNT out of the World Cup

    Since it's in Russia I suppose we can pretend we're boycotting
  9. Heard about this earlier in the day without actually watching it and somehow it's worse than I imagined it to be.
  10. Tesla is taking the world by storm!

    Nah, me too. The rendering for his tunnel boring idea they released a few months ago made no sense. Somehow it's going to solve congestion even though it involves cars having to descend down a slow moving elevator one at a time to get into the tunnel.
  11. Trump trails Clinton by only 6 points in national poll.

    Ron Howard narration voice: It wasn't fun.
  12. This happened after they'd told the White Hold press that there was a "lid" for the day, meaning no more news was going to break. So they called the press BACK just to do this.
