      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. It's a little better, but it's still pretty bland.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. They keep adding on stuff...just make a sequel!
  6. Damn son. Beast mode.
  7. I bet. I've only used my Switch in handheld mode, but I remember switching between playing my GBA games on Gamecube (via Gameboy Player) to playing them on the GBA itself, years ago. It was pretty cool. Though not as quick-n-simple as the Switch is now.
  8. Okay, I bought the game! Haven't started it yet. I may have a problem. Buying games. Not playing them.
  9. Might be! I'd like it to have some more functionality. Web browser, Netflix, stuff like that. Kinda bummed StreetPass isn't a thing on this. Oh well.
  10. Cool, they do good work. I wonder who did the other games in the pack?
  11. Ha ha, I'm basically the opposite of @DarkStar189 - I haven't even bothered to plug my Switch into the TV. It's 100% handheld for me. I would totally double-dip for a smaller, sleeker version though. No question.
  12. I'll likely be getting them all. I have no control over buying (or not buying) amiibo.
  13. Thanks for the info, @Mike ! Yeah, not surprised it isn't as robust, but it's good to hear the mechanics work the same as the bigger games. Was this developed by the same dev team (Camelot)?
  14. Has-Been Heroes has really been a breath of fresh air to me. Totally unique gameplay, a cool art style, and man! Talk about challenge! It works really well as a pick-up-and-play kind of game, due mostly to its rogue-like progression. I can start it up, grind for some levels/gold/whatever for a few minutes (or several) then save and put it down again. Feels perfectly at home on Switch, and has been great in handheld mode. The demo for Puyo Puyo Tetris is also pretty great on the Switch. Can't wait for the full version!
  15. It's National StreetPass Weekend again! April 13th through April 17th, you can get up to 6 StreetPasses from across the country at your local Nintendo Wi-Fi Hotspot! Collect puzzle pieces! Build your armies! Race against others from different timezones! Find your Mii! Get out there and get to it this weekend! w00t! It really helps. I've collected all the birthdays from the birthday calendar thanks to these hotspots.
