      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. What are You Playing This Weekend?

    Played Gran Turismo Sport all weekend when I did play.
  2. Holy crap, Skillz! That is fresh! I'll be picking this up. They did a really good job with syndicate and I think having a year off is good for these franchises. Love the ancient Egypt setting as well.
  3. Official General Comic News Thread

    Yeah, they're terrible in that respect. I've go to pick up a couple weeks today, myself. So behind on my reading.
  4. Gran Turismo Sport reviews are coming in

    It's not a mess. It really isn't. I've played every GT that's ever come out and one of my main complaints has been the lack of any change with the single player experience. Is this a departure a bit from what's come before? Yes. Regardless of how they frame the single player experience, if you enjoy actually racing and driving in this game, there's still offline racing to be had. You will still earn xp, credits, mileage points and level up doing custom races as much as you would doing races in the old structure. While we're mentioning Driveclub, I had fun with that game and it had flat out the most amazing, natural lighting I've ever seen in a racing game, but too many of the tracks were too narrow. I probably just suck, but I really struggled at higher levels and higher speeds.
  5. That was pretty awesome!
  6. Gran Turismo Sport reviews are coming in

    You get progression for everything that you do in the game. While you're correct that there isn't a do this and go there for single player racing like the events and structure of GT games past, you have the arcade mode. You can do single races and time trials and more importantly custom races. You can set everything up from damage, fuel usage, tire wear as well as laps. The more laps you do, the more xp and credits you'll earn. If you could create and save your own custom, multi race events, that would be awesome! Better yet upload the events online and be able to download events that people have created. To be honest, if I saw another Sunday Cup that I'd have to do, I'd probably have a stroke. The GT progression system was EXTREMELY stale. Also, goddamn, that quick look was fucking irritating. I couldn't make it through the whole thing, listening to those two natter on. The ISL review above was indeed very good.
  7. Punisher release date!

    I'm sure Marvel didn't plan that at all. Lol.
  8. Destiny 2 Discussion - The Definitive Edition

    Bungie has done this since day 1. Abandoning activities and content when something new comes out. Quite the waste.
  9. Destiny 2 Discussion - The Definitive Edition

    How about some actual unique looking weapons and a completely different set of armor for each character type? Do we know yet how long a season is supposed to be? To be honest, if they're going to stretch out one armor set design over multiple IB events, that's pretty weak. Luke Smith says he wants this to be a collection game? I like that as I'm a collecting whore, but they need to step up their shit. A segment of the team should be making new weapons and armor all day, every day, especially with the static rolls on weapons.
  10. Destiny 2 Discussion - The Definitive Edition

    How many packages did you get? I ended up with the Warlock helmet, the Titan chest and the Hunter chest and that's all she wrote after 23 fucking packages. I did not play Iron Banner today. The totem system is fine, but needs a modification to it. There has to be some guarantee of Iron Banner loot, and for me it's primarily the armour pieces as that's the only things that look even romotely unique. Get rid of the non IB gear for starters. Then maybe in addition to the rng drops you get guaranteed items at 10, 20 and 30 or something like that. At those points, you could also have to option to pick armour or weapons. The token system worked for the faction rally because you could do pretty much anything in the game to earn the tokens, instead of IB which is a single activity with potentially minimal rewards and way too much grinding.
  11. Finished this last night. I enjoyed it quite a bit. And yeah, the actor playing Ed Kemper is really compelling, especially at the end.
  12. Destiny 2 Discussion - The Definitive Edition

    Welcome to my world. 21 packages has converted to 3 armor pieces. That's 3 fucking pieces out of around 40 items. They can also go to hell with all of this non Iron Banner gear! Because that's why I play this mode. To get gear I can get anywhere fucking else.
  13. Lol. They're not destitute. I'm sure they made out fine. Also, wasn't this a contractual sequel? If Bungie didn't get this out, wasn't Activision going to get a bunch of cash and way more creative control?
  14. Destiny 2 Discussion - The Definitive Edition

    3 more packages today for the Hunter. First package is two weapons. Fucking sad face. Second is the chest piece and a weapon. Mild happy face. Third package gives me the exact same chest piece. Jesus fucking Christ. I just have to laugh at this point. RNG has been cruel this week!
