      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. I'm going out as Doc Brown from Back to the Future, because everyone will be out as Marty and nobody gives the doc any love
  2. FFXIV's roadmap to relaunch in 2013

    "Mmm I think you underestimate how ludicrously rabid and loyal Final Fantasy fans are. The PS3 hasn't even gotten the game yet, and there's where 90% of Final Fantasy fans get their fix. ...So, yeah, expect it to tell shit-tons once it's on the PS3. Guild Wars 2 and TOR aren't gonna be on the PS3. Everyone is looking at this from a PC-only perspective, they LITERALLY HAVE NO COMPETITION ON THE PS3" Edit: Quote system kept giving me error. Yeah I can see your point here. I guess I'm only looking at it from a common sense MMO player perspective haha. Don't get me wrong, if they fix the UI and those graphics look THAT good, I may plunk down money to play it on PS3, especially if they add new classes and lots of new content. If by changing the landscape they mean making things closer together and more accessible, I may be all over it. However it needs to be some miracle to make me come back for good.
  3. FFXIV's roadmap to relaunch in 2013

    They didn't listen to us in Alpha, all of this would have been done before release if they had listened. There were thousands of pages of forum posts about the things that needed to be changed and not one mod post EVER. They didn't even listen. Sure they are doing wonders for the game now but by the time it's finished and finally playable it'll be 3 years old, and Guild Wars 2/SWTOR will already be out. They need to let this game die and stop wasting their money, it is unsaveable.
  4. Wireless gaming mouse

    The logitech keyboard I have works seemlessly through the wall, the desktop is literally right on the other side
  5. Wireless gaming mouse

    Really? I know none of them will work flawlessly, but 15 feet through a wall is not doable?
  6. Wireless gaming mouse

    I'm looking to purchase a wireless gaming mouse that can do approx. 15-20 feet through a wall flawlessly. I'm not opposed to any brand, but I do have a logitech unifying receiver already installed, if there's a good enough wireless logitech gaming mouse. Any input would be helpful. Thanks.
  7. Official Star Wars: The Old Republic thread

    Most people who played XIV torrented the client. The download service was atrocious. Torrenting should not be what we have to resort to, but it is probably the best option for downloading clients. The client itself is always free as far as I'm concerned, you're merely paying for your account to be unlocked and allowed to play so I see no problem with torrenting in this case.
  8. Official Star Wars: The Old Republic thread

    They won't let you keep a beta character
  9. Anyone else have a problem with those videos taking like an hour to load on 720p? I hate youtube sometimes.
  10. F*** you Amazon...

    Just have them call you, they pretty much take care of everything almost instantly. Their customer service is top notch on mistakes.
  11. For PVP? Or are you talking about gear in general? Link me if it's about PVP I'd like to read that
  12. I like when PVP is balanced as well. However.... I have to admit I was one of the guys in Vanilla WoW who hardcore raided. My guild was 1 of the first 3 to clear Naxx and I was rewarded with the best 2 hander in the game (Warrior). I gladly spent weeks smashing everyone in PVP (the next week another war got the same weapon, and then the next another, you could only imagine us queueing together with 2 healers). While this was "fun" for me I can obviously see how awful it is for everyone else. The gear balance is definitely needed and something I welcome. The only thing I am not a fan of is how they just slap oboxious red and blue on your characters. At least make it stylish. I don't want to feel like I'm in the original Tron when I'm PVPing.
  13. Definitely agree with what you're saying. I would love to hear a release window too. They'd make me the happiest guy Christmas morning let me tell ya haha. I know it won't be that soon but I can dream.
  14. Hearing "when it's done" makes me feel better than hearing December 17th no if's and's or buts! And then me playing an unfinished game because they can "put in DLC later".
  15. MMORPG.com: Where are you with the game right now? Colin Johanson: We're currently in closed alpa for friends and family. Closed beta will happen before the end of this year. Release date is 'when it's done' .
