      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 guess as far as Dead Rising goes, yeah. But Resident Evil has been pretty solid overall, I'd say. And it didn't under perform all that much, honestly. It'll likely top 4M in a month or two (three at most).
  2. I LOL'd at that too. Though I think he's mostly referring to portable/handheld gaming. At least, I hope so...that's the only way that statement makes sense.
  3. I agree. I should note this "rule" mostly (if only) applies to indie games. Which doesn't make things any better to be honest.
  4. I've got some thoughts on this, but I'd like to hear from y'all first. What do you think of Arlo's points?
  5. Yeah, physical copy with the keychains! Sorry, should have pointed that out. Man this game is addictive. These two puzzle games alone would eat up my time, but with them both? Crossover style? Oh man. So good.
  6. From what I've read, Nintendo is really culling the games they have on the Switch eShop. So if the game isn't A.) Exclusive to Switch (or timed exclusive) B.) Has a unique feature exclusive to Switch C.) Or day-and-date with other versions of the same game Then they aren't actively pursuing titles (or straight up delaying/denying them) to have on their newest platform. They want NEW games to sell on their NEW system, not old(er) games everyone either has or has access to. Apparently this same issue is being had by the developers of N++ and even Tadpole Treble. Which...I guess makes sense to me from a business perspective, but...c'mon. These aren't garbage, shovelware games. Nintendo could only benefit from games like these on their new hardware. Get your act together, N.
  7. Puyo Puyo Tetris is great! Worth playing, you guys! Perfect for handheld gaming, IMHO.
  8. I picked up Puyo Puyo Tetris last night. Anyone else take the dive? And if so, who's up for some online multiplayer? The single player stuff is so bizarre and goofy. I dig it, but I'm not sure how the Western market will react to Puyo Puyo's zaniness.
  9. Othello = Reversi.
  10. It's a little better, but it's still pretty bland.
  11. I got the original Playstation for Christmas in 1997 - the explicit reason being to play Final Fantasy VII. Went on to enjoy a good portion of the console's other library over the years. Highlights being the Street Fighter Alpha games, Xenogears, Resident Evil 2, Spyro the Dragon, Soul Blade, Parappa the Rapper, Final Fantasy IX, Chrono Cross, and of course Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. I bought the PS2 sometime in 2001 by myself after trading in my NES, SNES, Gameboy, and N64 games library (did a total purge) to Funcoland. (!) Also traded in my SNES console and N64 console. I bought both the PS2 and the GBA at that point. I was super stoked for this new machine. Picked up Metal Gear Solid 2, Devil May Cry and Final Fantasy X that same day. Loved the system, played through Sons of Liberty and Tidus' adventures start to finish. Couldn't get into Dante's game for some reason, but still enjoyed it. After that...things basically really cooled down for me. I didn't buy any more PS2 games for a long time, and I rented GTAIII and did not care at all for it. I later sold my system, only to later buy a Slim PS2 when that came out. My modest PS2 collection of games now sits around 10 games total, including Castlevania: Lament of Innocence, Castlevania: Curse of Darkness, Contra: Shattered Soldier, DragonQuest VIII, The Street Fighter Collection, The Street Fighter Alpha Anthology, Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3, Mega Man X8, and Persona 4. I got the PSP for Christmas in 2007. I had my eye on one for a while, but I didn't have a super-good paying job at the time and the DS was hogging all my game time anyway. But I finally got one, and man. I freakin' loved that thing. It was easily my second most-played system that generation, right behind DS. Lumines, WipEout, Mega Man Powered-Up, Maverick Hunter Mega Man X, Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles, Ridge Racer, Guilty Gear Judgement, Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2, Tekken: Dark Resurrection, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, Motorstorm: Arctic Edge, and Street Fighter Alpha 3 being some highlights. (yes, I know. I buy Street Fighter Alpha 3 over and over. Please don't judge, I love that game!) I even liked some of the download-only games on PSP. I especially liked Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! What Did I Do To Deserve This?!? I mean, c'mon. The name alone is GOLD. I got a PS3 for Christmas in...2008? 2009? Something like that. I didn't ask for it, but my parents knew I was into video games and heard the PS3 was cool so they just bought it as a gift. Not too shabby! I unfortunately don't have much experience with this system, as this was around the time my career starting changing (and taking off) and also when I started having kids. Still, I have good memories with it playing the various Street Fighter games on it, beating Metal Gear Solid 4, and playing some of WipEout HD. As for Vita, I actually have only just recently bought one. Again, not much experience with it, but I've enjoyed Lumines: Electronic Symphony, Street Fighter X Tekken and ULTIMATE Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on it. My library is rounded out with Gravity Rush, Dragon's Crown, World of Final Fantasy, Persona 4 GOLDEN, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, WipEout 2048, Tearaway, and Mortal Kombat. Haven't bothered with the PS4. But hey, if history is anything to go by, I may randomly end up getting it as a surprise gift sometime!
  12. Recently bought, started, and completed Ninja Gaiden SHADOW for the original Gameboy. Pretty fun game, and thankfully not as impossibly, brutally difficult as its console counterparts. Now I've got Disney's Aladdin for the Gameboy Color. Which is basically the Genesis version of Aladdin. Except, y'know. On the GBC.
  13. Tetris games typically sell well in Nintendo hardware, so I think there is good potential there. I wonder how well Western markets will react to the goofiness of Puyo, though.
