      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. I have only used my Switch in portable mode so far, particularly while traveling / commuting. Will have to wait a few weeks to try it docked, but it's just fine as a handheld. I keep it in a small bag, with a power bank. With headphones + charger, it's a little cumbersome, but I'm rarely ever playing Zelda (or any game) for more than 2 hours at a time, unless I'm on a long flight. I typically only plug it in the bank when I'm finished playing. It charges pretty damn fast and is usually 100% before my next use. I only buy digital because I don't want more physical peices than I've already got. An external HD would contradict that and the larger storeage size seems excessive for my use (using a 256GB microSD). If space became an issue, I'd probably just grab one of the dozen other microSD cards I've got laying around to throw in my Switch case. I've got multiple 2TB Seagate external HDs and they are definitely tiny and portable. Just can't imagine needing to use one for my Switch and echo sentiments that requiring to plug in a drive just to play a game would be tedious, regardless of its size.
  2. Grabbing this on Switch today!
  3. Me me me!
  4. Thanks guys! Going to give Bluetooth a try first - then pick up dongle later if needed. Was just about to buy the black controller w/ dongle included - but for some strange reason I HAD to have the white one. I'm an idiot - let's hope bluetooth works. Thanks for the input!
  5. Hi gang, Currently using Xbox 360 controller w/ wireless dongle to couch-game on my PC. It works great - but the controller is getting a little jankey after all these years. Decided to upgrade to the Xbox One Controller w/ Bluetooth. Sounds like some people swear the bluetooth sucks and drops connections regularly and that the dongle works much better. Anyone here have any thoughts on this? Obviously I'd rather not have to buy a $20 dongle, especially for little to no improvement over the built-in-bluetooth. Thanks!
  6. Breaking the rules a bit because I was without a PC or console for most of the year, due to my house getting burglarized (yay). 1. Watch Dogs 2 - So. Damn. Fun! If only this had the technical prowess of GTA V, which still has the best visuals / performance in the genre. WD2 still manages to raise the bar in many other ways. Story isn't much to write home about, but it's engaging, fun and facilitates the gameplay perfectly. Lots of replay value as well. If only I could add my own music and lower the FOV (maybe I'm weird?). 2. Mafia 3 - By the time I picked this up, the technical issues had been resolved. Best combat, driving, soundtrack and story in an open world game. If the repetitive gameplay is fun, then what's the problem? I didn't want it to end. 3. Inside - Limbo had a bigger impact, because it was so fresh - but they took the concept a step further and won me over. Short and sweet. Just challenging enough.
  7. I think I need to try one of these out. Not sure if it's my thing, but for some reason I am very intrigued, haha. How accurate are the locations?
  8. This looks really cool!
  9. I'm probably 80% finished with this game. I have to say, really digging it, ESPECIALLY after installing this mod: http://www.pcinvasion.com/improve-mafia-3s-visuals-mod I can't emphasize how much of an improvement this mod gives the visuals. Overall PC performance is pretty damn solid now. 1440p with everything maxed out w/ consistent 60 FPS. It looks really, really nice. I've been playing with my wife - just trading off each objective. It's her first real modern open word / 3rd person game - so the repetitive gameplay isn't bothering us at all - it gives her more chances to practice and get a feel for the controls. The story and music (and I think the city is great) is enough to keep it from getting stale. Oddly enough, she went from only wanting to play 2D sidescroller / puzzle games & kart racers to googling stealth games after playing this game for a few weeks. Anyway - if any of you were holding out on this game due to the 30 FPS lock, glitches & ugly visuals - the time is now to check this game out. I'm enjoying it far more than I expected.
  10. These truck simulator games confuse me. You just drive around and deliver cargo and shit? Is it fun? What am I missing?
  11. I am so sold on this! This is essentially what I wanted out of Sonic 4. Updated visuals were.... okay I guess... but everything else felt wrong. THIS looks and sounds like Sonic. Spring seems so far away. Good thing I have a ridiculous backlog right now after the Steam Autumn sale.
  12. I bought this day 1 and still haven't played and it's KILLING ME. Ended up making a last minute decision to play through Watch Dogs 1 first. So far, I really love it! It looks and performs great. Love the hacking (which was a surprise to me). What did everyone hate so much about this? I'm getting 60 FPS with everything maxed out at 1440p and haven't encountered any glitches or annoying gameplay issues. I guess I'm still only about 4 hours in (and going a bit slow), but it's hard to balance taking my time & enjoying vs. finishing as fast as possible so I can jump into Watch Dogs 2. My only complaints (sorry to rehash from another thread) are the soundtrack (what's with all the awful pop punk? and this soundtrack is sooo small) and the way off-the-mark representation of Chicago (outside of the downtown mostly, but the Hancock Tower also looks hilariously tiny).
  13. NES. Christmas '88.
  14. Currently have a 1080p TV. I use DSR to play most games at 1440 or 4k (when possible) but some lower performing games at 1080p. I just bought a 4K TV on Black Friday (shipping now) and am trying to get my expectations in check before it arrives... Will 1080p / 1440p (DSR) look worse on the new set? I keep hearing and reading very conflicting information on this: that it will look the same or slightly better - or that anything below 4K will look noticeably more blurry or washed out, due to the up scaling. Old set: Philips 1080p 55" New Set: Samsung KS8000 4K 65"
  15. Only a couple hours in, but really digging the game so far. Very surprised. Actually enjoy the hacking aspect (which was a turn off initially) quite a bit and it runs and looks very nice. The performance and visuals may be 'enhanced' by the fact that I am also working through Mafia 3. So far my only complaints are the soundtrack and Ubisofts bizarre version of Chicago. Excited to finish this! Definitely ready for WD2.
