      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. BO2 Multiplayer Reveal Trailer

    More videos here: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=41005501&postcount=161
  2. Halo 4 @ SDCC: What was shown!

    Blood Gulch again? Enough with that god damn map!!
  3. True. And the fact that everyone that played it so far (including MLG pros) absolutely love it says it all. This game will be, to me, what Reach should have been. Other than this exaggerator/hater calling 343 crappy bungie, i havent heard anything bad from anyone that ACTUALLY played it.
  4. Halo 4 Forge

    Full panel video 52 minutes:
  5. Hey, just because Halo has a ton of customisation options, doesnt mean that they want to actually use them. They just did that to get a better review score, not to get a lilttle variety in the playlists. Come on now. Every game should be played in the MLG playlist. Everyone is now happy.....oh wait, theyre not playing in that playlist......oh well.
  6. Halo 4 Forge

    Ya well they didnt fix any of that with the new Forge. The maps will all still look the same in each of the areas...And its funny how Stephen always says how 343 havent proved anything (and they havent) and yet, Certain Affinity (ex Bungie guys) are the ones who worked on this Forge. And as it turns out, its the most disappointing part of Halo4 for me thus far. The ex-Bungie guys are the ones who made the weakest part of Halo 4 thus far. How ironic. http://ca.ign.com/ar...orge-for-halo-4
  7. Its called Halo3 and Halo Reach. Go play them.
  8. Halo 4 Forge

    Everything else has blown me away, SP, MP, Ops, map design, graphics, sounds, everything. Forge is the first real let down for me.
  9. Halo 4 Forge

    After 3 years of working on the game, Forge really disappoints me. You still cant change the time of day, or the colors of the pieces. Forge seems to have practically not evolved at all. There will be 3 Forge areas and all the maps built in those individual areas will have the same "all look/feel the same" like in Reach. Im very let down by Forge. Seems to me like they are purposefully not improving it much to sell us more Forge areas via DLC.

  11. Halo 4 Forge

    First link is Forge, second is gameplay of the 3rd map at E3. Forge Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIYlP5FVPJQ Gameplay Video
  12. MS gets "Xbox8.us" and "Xbox8.org"

    Does that mean its 4 times more powerful than PS4???
  13. This game sounds better and better with every new tidbit of info.
  14. I dont think it requires an install, i think it requires that much room to be available. And lets be honest, if you play online regularly, you also have room for this. And if youre one of the few that actually dont, a USB stick is about 8-12$. Theres no excuse other than to complain. Here are some of the responces from someone at 343 named Stinkles: (neogaf, i think its Frankie) http://www.neogaf.co...t=481037&page=4 Q: This is a good thing. Not sure why some are taking it as otherwise. A: Some men just want to watch the world burn. Anyway, this only affects MP players. MP players have XBL Gold. XBL Gold users are dramatically more likely to have HDDs. Q: No question A: We did actually explain all this at and before E3. Also interesting fact for statistics fans: this very thread has 100 times more people directly affected than average! Q: Microsoft is actively selling a console RIGHT NOW that won't let you play Halo 4 multiplayer without buying add-on memory. I shouldn't need to update my console just to play a game, especially from a first party developer. A: It's not ideal, but the actual gameplay experience will be much smoother as a result and some of the things we're doing are only possible with this requirement. I am surprised to hear you don't have a HDD Fyre, the numbers would suggest you're a very rare edge case - a serious Forge/Map creator with XBL and no HDD. Q: Can you say if MP means Spartan Ops or War Games? A: Absolutely both. We have been clear on this since day one. Spartan Ops in particular will be delivering content to your Xbox via Live. Let me be 100% clear, this is not an attempt to get you to upgrade to an HDD. The numbers affected are quite small and we went to significant effort to ensure this worked on a (relatively) cheap 8 Gig USB stick (and to the point in the post above, ANY stick that meets the speed and reliability minimums, absolutely NOT just MS branded media) for the odd case where someone had XBL and no storage. This is entirely in service of a good experience in the game.
