    A reading list for game designers looking to expand their conversations

    By RuneX, in Frontpage,


    Happy Monday, everyone. I hope you are all doing well. This week will mark the conclusion of our Summer Series here on Xbox with the Weekly Events and Game Nights lined up this week before our last set of activities before we go on September Break. I would like to extend my deepest thanks to all our outstanding game organizers and participants who make all this possible. To those who dedicate their time and energy to organize and participate these activities, you are the backbone of this community. It is my pleasure to work and play alongside all of you. Thank you for making this Summer as awesome as it was. I look forward the uncharted adventures and quests that await us as we close out 2018.
    September Break Notice - As with tradition following the end of the Summer months we are going on September Break which will last from September 3rd to September 11th. This means no Weekly Events or Game Nights will be scheduled for this time. We understand a fair amount of our members are either going back to school, heading to college, heading back to work, or squeezing in one last vaction trip around this time. We want to make sure both our organizers and members can take time to simply relax and recharge.
    Halo: Master Chief Collection Update - The long awaited and anticipated update for Halo: Master Chief Collection has been released today [Monday August 27th]. Improvements to matchmaking, UI, and other features were added to the game. We are pleased to announce that with this update are re-launching support for the game here on Xbox, with several events being planned for in the near future with an inagural event set for this Saturday night. We've also reorganized our AJSA Spartan Company where members can join to rock the AJSA tags and emblem on Halo. We look forward in this next chapter of Halo within the AJSA Xbox community. Cya Saturday!
    Featured Game Nights [August 29th & September 2nd]
    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 Aug. 29th - The Division - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6 Sunday Sept. 2nd - PUBG - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6 The Division is available through the Xbox Game Pass!
    AJSA Xbox One Weekly Event Schedule [August 30th to September 1st]
    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.

    Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had an amazing weekend filled with fun and adventure! We're approaching the end of August and slowly closing out our Xbox Summer Series. Thank you all for your support! We hope you can join us for the rest of the ride. This week we are featuring titles such as Warhammer Vermintide II, For Honor, and Overwatch across our Weekly Event/Game Night activities. These will be exciting and fun opportunities for us as a community to gather together and play. Please note that For Honor is currently available as an 'Xbox Games with Gold' title so if you have an active Gold subscription, and interested in participating, you can download the game for free!
    Feedback & Suggestions - This past week we launched a formal 'Feedback & Suggestions' thread in the Xbox One sub-forum. While mainly directed to newcomers and those who want to get more involved, anyone old and new from the Xbox community is free to post there.
    Featured Game Nights [August 22nd & August 26th]
    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 Aug. 22nd - Warhammer: Vermintide II - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6 Sunday Aug. 26th - Star Wars: Battlefront II - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6 Warhammer: Vermintide II is also available through the Xbox Game Pass!
    AJSA Xbox One Weekly Event Schedule [August 23rd to August 25th]
    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 Saturday, the 18th, we here at the EF will dive into the MechWarrior universe with Battletech once again, a turn-based strategy game released a few months 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 at 9pm BST/ 4pm EDT on our Discord Server.
