      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 or just shoot the breeze.  We have two requests: (a) PM me for an invite to the server. (b) If your Discord name is different than your D1P name, then you MUST tell me your Discord name before you receive an invite.   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. Samael,All Pigs Must Die,Exhumed

    Not really into that Samael track but loved the other two. Was the vocalist from All Pigs Must Die ever in another group? He sounds familiar.
  2. First 13 O.G. Xbox Titles Available For Backwards Compatibility

    No. It was a joke. OG Xbox did have some great launch titles though. Halo CE, PGR, DoA3, and a couple others I've probably forgotten.
  3. Welcome former GAFers!

  4. I guess I had my blinders on because I just assumed that if you're contributing to a 401k then your employer has some sort of match. Free money ftw.
  5. I mean I feel like that's all most people do though. I'm not refuting the fact that you'll have a tax liability in the future. I'm just not understanding how knowing that fact going in (and how could anybody not) would possibly outweigh the benefits. Most people don't live their lives thinking "I'm never going to pay taxes when I retire." Or maybe there are a lot more delusional people out there than I thought.
  6. First 13 O.G. Xbox Titles Available For Backwards Compatibility

    Oh. The title made me think it was going to be launch titles from the OG Xbox. I was really hoping I could play Azurik on my Xbone. Oh man. That game had so much potential. I still remember running through like the first level in a room where the gravity turned off on a space station or something like that and you were free floating and shooting at stuff in all directions. At the time that was pretty awesome. Then you land on the planet and do some driving. I think it was originally planned to be a trilogy but ultimately it was a few cool ideas and a good story wrapped in an ugly, buggy mess that critics did not like.
  7. Trump's terribleness truly grips everyone he tries to work with.
  8. Right but as long as you're knowing how much you're contributing and keeping track of it you should know well in advance of actually taking the money out. Unless you're constantly dumping the max in and only choosing high risk funds it doesn't seem like the concern outweighs the benefit.
  9. I liked last night's episode. I love Lorca. Still enjoying The Orville more at this point though.
  10. Completely agree with the latter but that shouldn't affect tax policy and contribution limits. As a young(ish) person that finally had the spare income at the beginning of this year to begin contributing to a 401k I'm genuinely ignorant here. How does it create a large tax liability as long as you're not taking it all out at once which most people don't?
  11. I don't think they "find" anything about him to be surprising. They knew what they were in for when their followers helped elect him. Now they get to pretend to be outraged when he does truly egregious things on a weekly basis but don't truly care because their team won. And liberal tears are just so fucking tasty who the fuck cares?
  12. Yup. But I expect better of civilized society where I live dammit! Or Detroit. When I lived there people were smoking and yelling at the screen all the time.
  13. So you'll be volunteering for the Trump 2020 campaign then?
  14. Tonight is hell!

    Where do you work? What do you do?
