    Flashback Week of Events [Feb 20th to 26th] - Starting tonight (2.20.2017) the AJSA Xbox One Division will be holding a week long series of community events celebrating games of the past we used to support and honoring our past console generation, the Xbox 360.
    One of the main highlights of the Flashback Week we will be introduction our first ever Xbox One Backwards Compatible event with Battlefield 3. This will be an excellent opportunity for members to relive and/or experience the game for the first time.
    Through backwards compatibility, we will be able to access all online multiplayer features within the game and some functions of the old Xbox 360 dashboard. We are essentially signing in to our Xbox 360 via the Xbox One. Thanks to that, we'll be able to invite any AJSA members on the Xbox 360 as well who wish to participate. Details are provided below in the event schedule.
    Xbox One Overwatch Tournament [March 2017] - To celebrate nearly a year of Overwatch events on Xbox One, we will be holding a special Overwatch Tournament among the AJSA Xbox One members this March. This will be a fun community activity for us to do. I'm happy to see how far the Overwatch group has come since we started to support it with events in May last year. I hope you can join us for the Tournament.
    We are scheduled to hold the tournament on March 25th, 2017 at 6:30pm EST. We'll be having our matches the same day and time we normally hold our Overwatch events on Xbox One. The tournament will see teams made up of three players. To learn more about the tournament, check out our information and sign up thread here:

    Fractured Space
    Designed by members of the Strike Suit Zero developer team, Fractured Space is a capital ship space combat game, offering PvE, Co-Op and PvP. Within the game, players choose a ship class and customize its loadout further to specialize the ship, with teams being able to exploit synergies between different ship specializations. Given the vast potential of the game and the fact that it is free2play, we deemed this game to be an excellent choice to host for the EF.
    As such we will host the second Fractured Space event this Saturday, the 18th of Febuary at 4pm EST/ 9 pm GMT.
    Dedicated Players

    We encourage commitment and attendance within the EF, thus we offer attendance pips for those players who register themselves as dedicated players (You can still attend all events without making this commitment). As such dedicated players promise to attend at least 50% of the events, for which they will receive said attendance pip at the end of the month.
    If you want to suggest ideas, discuss the game or make other recommendations, then feel free to do so in the EF forum here: http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/forums/topic/31185-future-ef-games-post-your-suggestions-here/   If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the EF leaders, namely Acepilot666, ArisingFlame, Brandykins1982, Conan or Digs.

    Its MORPHIN' TIME when we take on one of the Worst Games of 2017 (so far)! AngryJoe and Crew review the latest Power Rangers game, that's hoping to cash in on the franchise's nostalgia right before the reboot film. A perfect plan that only Joe's arch nemesis Corporate Commander could've devised! Is this game that brings Joe to near defeat!
