    By WITHASTICK, in Frontpage,

    This article is an update giving you a sneak peek of what games are coming to this month of Game Nights. Game Nights are weekly PlayStation 4 community events where members gather every Saturday to play games together. Now members in the PlayStation 4 Divisions will get an idea of what’s to come for this month. Whether those games be; Triple-A games, old popular games, indie games, free to play games, and even PS Plus monthly line-up games that support multiplayer features. Please understand right now we’re not giving the dates of when each game may appear in the month. Game Nights are always ever changing, and the games could get shifted around. Also understand that these games you see below have a chance of changing due to a number of reasons like; Network issues, broken patches, broken games, lost of support and interest, etc. However no matter what game it is we’re sure you’ll find something to enjoy. So come join the mayhem, make new friends, laugh all night, destroy the world or destroy each other!
    Game Nights June Games
    *Do not sign up for any of these Game Nights. Wait until the proper Game Nights announcement featuring the game you’re interested in.*

    *Game Nights are ever changing and are open to change. Always stay up-to-date in case a Game Nights changes.

    Dungeons and Dragons
    Well we finally decided to do some DnD campaigns here in the EF. Now if you don't know what DnD is, then just know that it is a tabletop RPG and is commonly recognized to be the game that launched the modern RPG games industry.
    Given that campaigns in DnD can drag on for weeks, regular attendance is always an issues, hampering a consitent story line. As such we will host 3 one-off campaigns, using the DnD 5.0 system of rules. The characters will be pregenerated to allow for fun 2-4 hour sessions.
    We will host the third DnD event this Sunday, the 28th of May at 3pm EDT/ 8 pm BST, however people wishing to play are asked to attend 30 min early for the briefing about the session. 
    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.
