      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. Not only CAN you use the 3.5mm jack, if you want to have proper 3D positional sound coming out of your Headphones, you MUST use the 3.5mm jack. And yes, the PSVR only needs one USB port, as already pointed out.
  2. Cuphead Has Sold a Million Copies

    I don't think I've been stuck on any one level for longer than about a half hour (well, probably 45 minutes for the one level I mentioned earlier), but other than the 3 ghost-parrying levels which I've beaten first try, I don't think I've made it through any level without at least 10 deaths. The game definitely requires a lot of dying and trying again to get through. I watched this one youtube video of a guy playing through the train level and beating it first try without even realizing that the I was mad/jealous at this
  3. Cuphead Has Sold a Million Copies

    Well, like I said, it might have been because I was tired. I had been playing well past my normal bedtime because of the addictive nature of the game. The dragon boss took me 15 or so tries. I just finished world 3 last night. 2 more stages to go!
  4. Cuphead Has Sold a Million Copies

    One of the best games of the year. Thoroughly enjoying my time with it. This level gave me the most grief so far. Might have been because I was tired. Turned it off and went to bed, then finished it the 5th try the next day. Uploaded my successful run to YouTube:
  5. a) consumers can voice their opinion to the developers. Feedback is pretty easy to be heard. Enough tweets go out to the developers and they'll get the message b) I'm sure there will be all kinds of analytics prepared by Sony and independent market analysts that look at how games with Pro enhancements generally perform in the market vs games without, as well as statistics on how many consumers actually take advantage of pro enhancements.
  6. If it isn't any real effort to implement, then the developers will implement it. The fact that some developers are choosing not to would suggest that isn't quite as simply as you're suggesting. Let them do their own cost/benefit analysis and decide if they feel it is worthwhile. If the market starts to reject purchasing games that don't support the Pro with enhancements, the developers will react. But again, it should be at the developer's discretion in order to foster a healthy developer community.
  7. I disagree that Sony should be forcing developers to make an enhanced version for the PS4Pro. If they want to continue to have a developer-friendly environment where developers choose to flock, they need to keep those sorts of things optional. And yes, I have a PS4 Pro hooked up to a 65" 4K HDR OLED. But let the developers choose to support an enhancement. Don't create an environment where developers feel grumpy about having to do the thing Sony insisted on. That isn't good for anyone.
  8. Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds - Landscapes trailer

    I am excited for this DLC expansion. That might be the first time I've ever said that...
  9. Yeah, input lag would be deadly on this game. It requires very precise timing. I'm loving every second of it. Haven't been able to play since Monday and it's eating at me. I'm a third of the way though the third world.
  10. Cuphead Reviews are coming in...

    Started playing this game on the weekend and it's all I can think about when I'm not playing it. Played most of the game on my own, though went back and did a few fights over in co-op. Co-op almost seems too easy with the ability to revive each other. This is just the kind of game for me. Growing up on games like Contra and Metal Slug and Ghouls N Ghosts and Forgotten Worlds and Thunder Force III and so on and so forth, this is hitting all the right notes in my childhood gaming life. Played through all of the first two worlds and 3 of the third world's bosses. Loving every second of it!
  11. The real reason is that, being a home electronics manufacturer, Sony likes to use their own drives in their products. They had not yet developed their own UHD drives and so didn't have that ready to go into production for the PS4 Pro.
  12. PS+ for October 2017: MGSV Phantom Pain, Amnesia: Collection

    From what I've read, it's got a more stable frame rate at times, but otherwise no improvements. Konami did not put out a Pro Patch.
  13. HDMI switch recommendations?

    I meant Active (power chord) versus Passive (not independently powered). Though it appears I was largely misinformed on the input lag part as I look into it. Most switches should not introduce input lag regardless of being active or powered. The general consensus out there is that Active switches are far less likely to give you connection/picture issues than Passive ones.
  14. HDMI switch recommendations?

    From what I understand, active switches (powered) are the way to go. Also, consider getting one compatible with HDMI 2.1 and HDCP 2.2 to avoid problems with new hardware down the road, like a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X.
  15. The Orville: Official trailer

    I've never been a fan of anything Seth McFarlane has done, live action or animated until The Orville.
