      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. Should i buy Heavy Rain?

    i actually took the plunge and bought it on saturday morning after i realized it was only $30. i've waited because one of my friends spoiled the game for me months ago and i didn't think this kind of game would hold my attention for long. i popped the game in around noon and had it beat by that night. about 8-9 hours of nonstop playing. it's that good. even though i knew how it was going to end i couldn't put it down. i probably would have beaten it sooner but i had to literally pause the game for 20-30 minutes to think about some of the in game decisions. i found myself getting so attached to the characters like nothing i've ever played before. i'd definitely recommend it. rent it if anything. the story is that great.
  2. Is Heavy Rain set in Canada?

    i thought the same thing. the way they kept saying origami was mildly annoying me.
  3. I have the 295, running it on high settings with aa maxed. Only played about 20 min worth but it runs fine. Did notice some slow down during combat so I may have to turn the aa down a bit but it looks fine and is very playable.
  4. DA2 Demo Mod

    Yeah, I was surprised by the character creation. You can make some really great looking characters with it. Future community mods should see that it only gets better.
  5. DA2 Demo Mod

    Are you going to skip out on this game entirely just based on the demo? No animosity, just curious. I still haven't decided if I'm purchasing, just thought I'd share the mod with others who are on the fence. Plus it's always fun to mess around with a character creator and see some of the other armor in the game. But I get where you're coming from.
  6. DA2 Demo Mod

    http://mod.gib.me/dragonage2/demo/inventory.7z just extract to Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age 2 Demo\Packages I've tried it, verified it works. Those saying combat is too easy may want to install this and give the demo another try. You have to play the first scene and then you can edit the char afterwards, then once you submit you can choose difficulty (including nightmare). Presets are weak as hell and I'll probably stick with the original premade char, but it's definitely an upgrade over DAO in terms of customization imo. edit: yeah i can confirm nightmare mode doesn't f around. http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/141/index/6289395/1 for more info.
  7. Demo for DA2 available

    those saying the demo looks like ass realize the game is capped at medium video settings, right? i thought the demo wasn't that bad. combat is easy, but people bitched about da:o being too difficult too. i'll probably wait and see what others say about the full game before i buy it, but i'm not writing this one off just because of a 20 minute demo.
