      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. Small Halo 5 Story Rant (spoilers, obviously)

    I feel your frustrations. One would think with the amount of money MS has pumped into developing the canon of the series, they'd at least pay the writers to agree/develop a coherent plot. Forcing someone to spend hours reading EU material and wiki pages to find enjoyment with a story is horrible writing. Not to mention the games completely disregard established canon whenever it's convenient. Looking at you Halo Reach.
  2. I might have made a huge mistake. I bought five IMAX tickets on the SECOND row. They were the only ones available...
  3. Battlefront Beta Impression Thread

    Alright. I hardly post here anymore, but I haven't seen such polarizing emotions for a beta in years. So I'm gonna throw in my feels: Aside from the Star Wars license, this is the most original AAA shooter we've had in a while. Comparing this game to Battlefield, COD, Destiny, Halo, or whatever the fuck the kids are playing these days is incredibly crude. The game encourages you to shoot from the hip. There are no recoil, accuracy, or damage penalties for laying waste at players from 3rd person. I've yet to find an advantage to using ADS aside from the occasional 1 mile pot shots. I believe this style of gameplay is throwing the past 10 years of hardcore FPS players in for a shock as their tactics and gunplay nuance are completely worthless during firefights. This style of gameplay IMO is what really hearkens back a lot of the nostalgia from the simpler days of FPS. Where shooters weren't about fine tuning a myriad of gun attachments. Or developing freakishly fast combinations of twitch skills that is REQUIRED to be competent in a modern FPS. In this game you choose a few tools to wreak havoc, and proceed to kill the living fuck out of everything. If you're having issues with the killing part, you're thinking about shooting too hard. In terms of gunplay this game is EXACTLY like the old BF games. And if you don't believe me, load up BFII and play a few rounds. Aside from class based warfare and vehicle changes, it's mindless running and gunning while commanding objective points. Drawing comparisons to the original BF is pretty crude as well too. For one, the IQ in a modern game always trumps content. Making maps at the insane level of detail DICE has committed takes A LOT of time. Having this game launch with 20 maps simply isn't economical/feasible. DICE will most likely roll out expansions over the next year, and I would be surprised if they even get to 20 maps. The vehicle system is a pretty big gamble, but I find the change to be refreshing. Anyone that's ever played a Battlefield game knows about the camping lines for vehicle spawns, and it can really inhibit playing the objective. Putting random tokens in key battle locations keeps infantry combat more focused and retains the rushing excitement of entering a vehicle. I do think that players who have the highest objective points should be rewarded with game changer perks to clutch a game. I.E Getting a snowspeeder for a chance to win the game. Battlefield is pulling ideas from the past 20 years of shooters, and so far it's great. Does it have the depth to maintain a sizeable player count for another year? I have no idea. It completely depends on how DICE supports it. Which brings me back to say that this is a beta. Just about all of the major gameplay complaints about spawning and balance can easily be fixed over this month. It's completely unfair to say this game lacks depth because nobody actually knows the full skill trees, weapon options, scenarios, and content update plans. This game is too polished to say it's nothing but an EA cash grab. Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 was a cash grab. DICE has shown in the past a lot of commitment to maintaining their products. The emotions of Star Wars were created by DICE as a labor of love. I'm looking forward to the full release.
  4. I really want to like the nemesis system, but it feels incredibly under developed. About halfway through the game my character was powerful enough that I didn’t even bother looking up warchief/captain weaknesses. With a quick run, I could brand/kill the majority of the available captains, and dispose the warchiefs with relative ease. As my character progressed, the nemesis system was more trouble than just killing whatever the fuck that got in my way. Putting that aside. The combat is really satisfying, and I really enjoyed the graphics/animation. They really have the pieces to make a phenomenal sequel. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
  5. MCC anyone able to get online?

    That sucks man. I've only done halo 2 on legendary once, and I've vowed to never do it again.
  6. MCC anyone able to get online?

    3gb? My hdd is getting destroyed, and I've only had my Xbox for a week. Any impressions? I'm looking forward to trying the update out.
  7. They said that the only way I could get the deal would be to completely return my xbox, and then have them resale it back to me. I don't understand how these stores stay in business,
  8. If I bought my xbox from bestbuy last week am I eligible for this?
  9. MCC anyone able to get online?

    I'm down for D1P customs.
  10. You have to own the game and be invited to get early beta access. If anyone got access, and doesn't have the mcc collection I will gladly take the key off your hands!
  11. MCC anyone able to get online?

    I really wish Microsoft would give out some form of compensation. It's completely unacceptable that the game is still broken over a month since release.
  13. MCC anyone able to get online?

    Matchmaking is still horrendously slow, and I get a lot of dropped players. Also, Halo CE playlist are unplayable for me. Whenever I load a CE game, the axis on my analog sticks go full retard.
  14. Looking to get a xboner this week...

    sgonzo, I'll send you the codes when I get home from work today!
  15. Looking to get a xboner this week...

    Thanks! I didnt get the Kinect, I'm holding off till I try my friends. He wants to sell me his for a good deal. My roommate also bought me gta v for an early Christmas present. I've got a lot of games to keep me going for a while. I still want to pick up sunset overdrive. Also, does anyone want my assassins creed codes? I'm not a fan of the series. Hit me up, and ill send you the key.
