      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 loved Live '98. The last dunker was Latrell Sprewell.
  2. I was very pleasantly surprised by the game. I enjoyed the story quite a bit, and didn't mind the game's linear nature for that reason. In terms of overall package, it doesn't compare to GTA. But as a short diversion, it was great. On a related note, the game has a particular scene... I can't recall another recent game in which I've wanted a player-character to win so badly. That emotional investment has to be worth some sort of distinction. Ha ha.
  3. If you read some of the posts in the linked Two Worlds 2 thread, you'll see many people were seriously addicted to the game. If you find a deal you like, I'd recommend getting it. I personally enjoyed Risen, but not nearly to the degree I did TW2. I haven't played Divinity 2 yet, so I can't speak on that.
  4. I suppose I could've expounded, but I was referring to the way you can interact with the world. Even though if offered a lot in that department, I feel it wasn't as varied as JC2, GTA, Red Dead, Oblivion or Far Cry 2. It's a personal opinion, and I fully understand some people feel differently. I'm not knocking it. I love Saints Row 2; it's one of my favorite games of the generation. The character customization was great, and the perks/weapon unlocks were a very nice feature. It may be the most sheer fun of any game on the list, but I think the others offer a bit more depth.
  5. The "lack of imagination" argument could be used for any game mentioned in this thread. Saints Row 2 may have the least amount of creative freedom of the games listed, but I can't think of many other co-op experiences that can match the sheer fun it provides. Personally, I'd probably go with the GTA games, but Just Cause 2 certainly is in the argument. As a single player experience, it's simply amazing. If it had co-op, I think it may literally be the best game ever created. Also, somebody mentioned the environments of JC2 looking all the same. I don't get this impression at all Desert, jungles, tropical islands, snow/ice, mountains, flatlands, the NW island, cities, small towns, farms, flying structures, structures in the ocean, etc. If anything, it's one of the most varied game worlds I can recall experiencing.
  6. I was already sold on this game knowing it had online co-op, but that is great to hear!
  7. I played through the game in 2-player co-op. It was fun, but a little short. I haven't gotten to play with 3 or 4 people yet, but I'm sure that would be great.
  8. Fair enough. I understand that and totally agree with your earlier comment, "Duke deserves better." I've been fine with the game as a rental, but there's no way I'd think it was worth the full retail price.
  9. After reading this thread, I rented this game over the weekend. It already had an update. I'm not sure what it was for, but perhaps it cleaned up some of the issues people expressed. There were some framerate hiccups at the beginning, but I haven't really noticed them as I continued playing. The death load times are still probably 20-30 seconds long, and are the biggest negative I've taken away so far. It's not a great game by any means, but it struck me as an average to slightly-above-average shooter with Duke Nukem as the lead and numerous DN-style pop culture references. I've played many, many worse games.
  10. I've played maybe 15 minutes of the game, but spent numerous hours creating things. For 240 pts, this game is well worth the purchase (had I known what it was, I would've paid much more). I'm still learning some of the finer points of the Build mode, but I'm getting better. Maybe I'll have something good by the time you're back online, Fieldy.
  11. I believe the applicable saying for this is "be careful what you wish for."
  12. In many cases, you could blame a lack of preparation for some of the death toll. But this was a mile-wide tornado with 200 mph winds. 2,000 homes were destroyed and they're still finding people trapped in those homes. Even people who were very well prepared are victims today.
  13. I'm still of the mindset the vocal majority didn't understand the satire of Liberty City. I have no faith whatsoever they'd get Rockstar's type of allegory when it's set in a country where they don't live. A huge amount of GTA's humor is based on their skewering of American media, commercialism, self-indulgence and self-entitlement. There's plenty to work with there, so if the company is going to give that up, they'd better stick with a "familiar" place like London, Mexico or Canada. As much as they get in trouble for the edginess of their content, they've generally played it safe with their choice of setting. If someone's looking for a truly foreign experience, I have a feeling he/she will have to hold out hope for Rockstar's next non-GTA offering (a la RDR, LA Noire, etc.).
  14. Fair enough. That group just appears to be the online mainstream any time GTA4 (and other Rockstar games to a lesser extent) is brought up. I suppose it's a case of the most upset being the most vocal.
  15. I didn't read the IGN review, but I've seen the game's gotten a few 10's as well. I'm sure it'll be hated by the mainstream because of those.
