      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. DF: Shadow of War: Early Xbox One X vs P

    Dang. The Pro kind of got it's ass whipped here. I've always been a Sony guy. But if the X1X has consistently better looking games and performs better then...yea. I've yet to see my TV's full 4K HDR capabilities. Would love to see something pushing it to it's limits.
  2. Trump made a condolence phone call to a widow. Apparently Florida Representative Frederica Wilson was listening to the call. She claims he said insensitive things, Trump denies he said them. BOTH of them say they have proof, but AFAIK neither has presented it. No one is supposed to record Presidential consolation calls, and all we've got is their word for it. Trump is no Abraham Lincoln when it comes to offering condolences. That we know for sure. Everything else is he said she said.
  3. I just have a hard time believing Mrs. Wilson is not using this for political and financial gain. She's already generated over $300K through gofundme and the 5000 Role Models of Excellence. And I wonder who owns the aforementioned "charity"? Hmmm.....
  4. I was just thinking yesterday how reputable Frederica Wilson was as a source of information. I mean, she just loves The Don.
  5. Gran Turismo Sport reviews are coming in

    Yes, but does it have ECU, Turbo, Exhaust, Suspension, Intake, etc etc upgrades? I always loved taking say, a Subaru STi and making it a 1000bhp track monster. That's what I miss about the series.
  6. Gran Turismo Sport reviews are coming in

    No career mode and no tuning/upgrades means a no buy from me.
  7. I bought the standard edition, physical copy. I enjoyed the campaign, and the crucible seems to have improved. But other than that, nothing sets this game apart from Destiny 1. Honestly, I really don't have any desire to play it again. lol
  8. I'm basing my opinion off of the F7 demo, so I'm probably not being fair. Also, the GT:Sport demo is optimized for 4K HDR TV's so there's that too. But comparing the two based off the demo, GTSport looks better in motion, the menus are cleaner and responsive, the lighting is better, the physics seem more sim like, and the game just generally runs smoother.
  9. Played the demo last night. It looked and played better than I expected. But does anyone know if you can upgrade your cars in this? Turbos, ECU, exhaust, suspension, tires, wheels, etc? If not, that may be the only thing that keeps me from getting this. And like someone else stated, it does look better than Forza. lol
  10. I'm a little burned out on racers too. But my interest could be somewhat renewed. Like I said earlier, I wish more racing games would take the RPG approach and give you a crappy car right away, and have you earn your way to the super cars. I don't even want to have access to the faster cars until I've earned enough credits, experience or whatever. And give me a fleshed out single player experience. If any of this sounds familiar, this is pretty much what GT3: A Spec was. GT3 is also the best selling GT game of all time. Coincidence?
  11. https://blog.eu.playstation.com/2017/09/14/8-things-you-need-to-know-about-gran-turismo-sport-before-you-start-racing/ Well that just killed my anticipation.
  12. I tried the F7 demo, wasn't really feeling it. I know it's got more cars and supposed to be all 4K pretty and stuff. But the demo just wasn't fun for me. I miss the days where you started out with a slow car you could barely afford, and earned your way to the super cars. I always really disliked having access to the best cars right off the bat. Not for me. But I'm looking forward to trying the GT demo. It's been 10 years since I've played a GT game and I've heard good things.
  13. PS+ for October 2017: MGSV Phantom Pain, Amnesia: Collection

    Good Lord that Skyforce game is surprisingly good and very addicting. It's like a super polished late 80's early 90's arcade shooter (the kind you played in the mall while mom went shoppingl). Downside is it's local co-op only. But it does have online leaderboards and cross play. Edit - If I'm way late to the party, just ignore my enthusuasm. lol
