    Call Of Duty 4 Remastered Apparently Confirmed With Poop Emoji

    I kind of like this new companies not giving a fuck style marketing, also a little strange that they found a tweet that was over two years old to reply to, so they must have came up with the idea to do this and then actively searched for the best tweet to respond to.

    Calling the SWAT team on your neighbor could soon carry a 20-year prison sentence
    Would be good to see harsher penalties for that. Not sure why people writing about this keep referring to it as a prank when people clearly do it to cause fear or to endanger the lives of people to get them to stop doing something, terrorism or reckless endangerment (in addition to the whole false police report thing) depending on who it is aimed at would probably be a more accurate description.

    Maybe some people will remember The Mandate from the video that Joe did around the time of the community relaunch, obviously the game still isn't out but they do release updates, usually about once a month to show how things are progressing, to show different systems, and they showed off some boarding combat about nine months ago. In this update they talk about ships, ship bridges, head models, animations, and the adventure mode.

    During the first video they announced that Total War Warhammer is going to be giving the Chaos faction free to everyone who preorders and to everyone who buys the game within the first week of release. So you can wait a few days for reviews and if you buy it within the first week you will still get them at no additional cost. Similar to what the other Warhammer game Battlefleet Gothic is doing (except they are giving two factions to people who buy the game in the first two months).

    May has come! With it a sh#t load of games (For some strange reason or another). Three of the big stand outs are Battleborn, Overwatch, and Doom. All first person shooter games, all different in their own unique way. Battleborn more of a moba, Overwatch more of a hero shooter, and DOOM trying to be old school (But not? I don’t know it’s confusing). This three games however are your battlegrounds for this month's challenge. Perform great feats during your combat in each of these games, record them and showcase them to the rest of the AJSA. Stand out among the rest and become this month’s Community Challenge Champion!
     
    Objective: Record and post a video clip/clips of you performing great feats (Killing sprees, Play of the game, Clutch save, etc) within any or all of the three game’s multiplayer; Battleborn, Overwatch, and/or DOOM (Overwatch Open Beta footage counts).
     

    Enter your video clip/clips here: http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/forums/topic/34564-may-community-challenge-tomato-tamahto-doom/ Enter your video clip/clips before 5/30/16 The video clips must be of you performing great feats (Killing sprees, Play of the game, Clutch save, etc) within any or all of the three game’s multiplayer; Battleborn, Overwatch, and/or DOOM (Overwatch Open Beta footage counts). That’s it… ya, nothing else… so… get at it!

    What is Tabletop Simulator?
     
    Tabletop Simulator is a multiplayer physics sandbox (exciting, right?). More specifically this game is a physics simulator that allows you to recreate a myriad of different tabletop games (hence the name). Whilst the games that are offered by the vanilla retail version might be a bit bare-boned, the Steam Workshop offers a myriad of games recreated within the unique physics sandbox. As such your favourite tabletop games can probably be found here, and YOU have a chance to play it with other members of this community!
     
    Additionally, as the 30th of April is Tabletop Day, we felt obliged to host an additional EF event that day, despite that date still being part of April. As such we will be hosting an EF Tabletop event after the end of the EF Red Orchestra 2 event, at 6pm EDT/ 11pm BST. We shall be hosting at least two separate games, which will be announced as the event starts!
     
     
    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....itionary-force/   If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the EF leaders, namely Acepilot666, ArisingFlame, Brandykins1982, Conan or Digs.
