    E3 Coliseum: Grim Fandango featuring Jack Black

    By RuneX, in Frontpage,


    Good morning! I hope everyone is doing well and that you all had a great weekend. Today's article is coming on a Tuesday due to some IRL obligations yesterday I had get in the way of publishing the article/schedule for Xbox. I normally publish the articles/schedules on Monday. Thank you for understanding! This week, in observance of the Summer Solstice, we are featuring titles such as Battlefield 4, Fortnite, and Overwatch as events! We hope you can join us to kick off the formal start to Summer at our various activities we have planned this week.
    Featured Game Nights [June 20th]
    Xbox Game Nights were introduced back in January of this year. These are local AJSA Xbox Club activities that are normally held during days where we have no events scheduled. These organized play sessions are structured to be more loose and laidback, creating more opportunities for us as a community to reach out to more games and play even more with each other.
    For additional information on Game Nights/Weekly Events, check out our Xbox Community Information thread.
    Wednesday June 20th - Star Wars: Battlefront II - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6 The Game Night for Sunday June 24th remains undetermined so we will not feature a time/game for that date in this article. Keep watch for Club notices/alerts if anything changes within the coming days.
    AJSA Xbox One Weekly Event Schedule [June 21st to June 23rd]
    How Can I Join An Xbox One Event? - For new members/first time event participants, I highly encourage you to add all the hosts as your friend on Xbox Live (Gamertags are listed for every host below). You can also join the AJSA Xbox Club and add hosts/members there. All event and game night parties are launched from the Club. Additionally, please review our Code of Conduct.
    Communication during events are done primarily in the Xbox Live Party system. In case of emergency, we will use the AJSA Discord Channel. We accept and make adjustments for people who are shy in large groups and/or for people who have no mics.
    If by chance you do not have the host as a friend, please message the host for an invite to the game/party during the event and then exchange friend requests upon entry to the party. Most, if not all, event parties will be visible to all Xbox Club members. Look under "Looking for Group" at the start/during an event to view the event party and join up.
    If you would like to give advance notice to the host that you would like to play, you are free to do so. Otherwise keep note of the event start times and join the host's Xbox Live party to begin. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at "RuneX" on the forums or on Xbox Live. To learn more about the AJSA Xbox One Division, check out our Community Information thread.

    This Sunday, we here at the EF will dive into the MechWarrior universe with Battletech, a turn-based strategy game released a few weeks ago. For the event itself, we will pair the attendees, to face off against one another in 1v1 matches. Given that the attendees are facing off in 1v1 matches, it may be required for some of them to host sessions themselves.
    The event will take place this Sunday, the 17th, at 9pm BST/ 4pm EDT on our Discord Server.

    Who Gets To Be On The Steam Store?

    Steam's Irresponsible Hands-Off Policy Is Proof That Valve Still Hasn't Learned Its Lesson
    The games industry reacts to Valve's divisive Steam Store curation policy
    Steam's content policy is both arrogant and cowardly
    Itch.io creator says Steam's new hands-off curation policy is 'ridiculous'
    Why I'm not super excited about Valve's new Steam policy
    Abdication
    Valve gives up on responsibility
    Valve removes AIDS Simulator, other controversial games from Steam Store
    (I really can't find anything supporting the policies that aren't either just from terrible people that want to have really offensive or racist things on Steam, very brief generic arguments that basically start and end with "Nintendo censored things in the 80s so this is good," or "Well, at least they might not remove visual novels for no reason anymore)     'BattleTech' Developer Accused of Sexual Harassment, Resigns
     
    Extra Credits Creator
    Normally, I wouldn't believe the quick write up about the unnamed hired PR firm finding nothing in their investigation of the creator of the company some time after the accusing employee already left, but then it went out of its way to mention that they assigned a woman to the case and that really won me over (no, not really). Obviously, I won't be providing any kind of platform for them going forward.

    By RuneX, in Frontpage,


    Good afternoon, everybody! I hope you all had a great weekend. These past few days have especially been exciting with E3 going on. This time of year is always fun because of all the new games being announced and showcased. A fair amount of multiplayer titles were featured this weekend as well and I'm definitely eager to organize some events for those games once they release! Speaking of events....this is what games we're featuring as Xbox events this week! Thank you and enjoy!
    Overwatch Notice - This Saturday night we will not be having an Overwatch event due to our host having an IRL obligation to carry out. In its place we will be bringing back a community classic, Halo: Master Chief Collection, to take the lead as our Saturday night main event. Overwatch returns next Saturday.
    Featured Game Nights [June 13th]
    Xbox Game Nights were introduced back in January of this year. These are local AJSA Xbox Club activities that are normally held during days where we have no events scheduled. These organized play sessions are structured to be more loose and laidback, creating more opportunities for us as a community to reach out to more games and play even more with each other.
    For additional information on Game Nights/Weekly Events, check out our Xbox Community Information thread.
    Wednesday June 13th - Friday the 13th: The Video Game - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6 There is no Game Night scheduled on June 17th in observance of 'Father's Day'.
    AJSA Xbox One Weekly Event Schedule [June 12th to June 16th]
    How Can I Join An Xbox One Event? - For new members/first time event participants, I highly encourage you to add all the hosts as your friend on Xbox Live (Gamertags are listed for every host below). You can also join the AJSA Xbox Club and add hosts/members there. All event and game night parties are launched from the Club. Additionally, please review our Code of Conduct.
    Communication during events are done primarily in the Xbox Live Party system. In case of emergency, we will use the AJSA Discord Channel. We accept and make adjustments for people who are shy in large groups and/or for people who have no mics.
    If by chance you do not have the host as a friend, please message the host for an invite to the game/party during the event and then exchange friend requests upon entry to the party. Most, if not all, event parties will be visible to all Xbox Club members. Look under "Looking for Group" at the start/during an event to view the event party and join up.
    If you would like to give advance notice to the host that you would like to play, you are free to do so. Otherwise keep note of the event start times and join the host's Xbox Live party to begin. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at "RuneX" on the forums or on Xbox Live. To learn more about the AJSA Xbox One Division, check out our Community Information thread.
