    Everything I've read points to no. However I wouldn't rule it out officially with the "Play Anywhere" campaign that Microsoft has been pushing with PC/Xbox one. If that's the case and you're able to join us, we'd love to have you

    Hello and welcome back! Pleasure to meet you.
    Happy to report that the AJSA is still going strong and we have a presence across all major platforms (PC, Xbox & PS4). Event scheduling/structure and game support vary by Division.
    There isn't any particular game that we are all doing at the same time right now but the PC/Xbox/PS4 have their own heavy hitters and additional community titles that rally themselves together. The forums and Discord are great because they help promote discussion and bring everyone together in one venue.
    Thanks for checking up on things and seeing whats up.
    Cya around!

    Quick notes on the events coming up and a brief recap from the Flashback Week:
    - Flashback Week: Thank you to everyone who came out and participated during our Flashback series of events we held last week. It was very fun and cool to head back to some of these older games and seeing our AJSA squads still kicking ass. To all who made the effort as well to re-install some of the games we played just so you could participate, thank you.
    Our first ever Backwards Compatible Event was also a success. It went very well. We will have to do more of these in the near future for sure.
    - Upcoming Events: Some notes of interest -
    The Iron Banner on Destiny begins this Tuesday. The PvP game mode of the week will be the "Supremacy". It is a great match type to play with a squad and in my opinion one of the best PvP modes within the game. Additionally for those who've yet to complete their Supremacy quests this will be a great opportunity for you to knock those out and unlock some new gear. At this Friday's Battlefield 1 event, we will be asking participants if they have the Premium Pass and/or are looking to get the upcoming "They Shall Not Pass" DLC. We will look to organize off-event hour squads with members who are interested in trying out the DLC with an AJSA squad down the road. In case you missed it, please check out latest event announcement on "Wildlands". Slade made a post detailing what to expect from the Xbox team about future events and squad structure: http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/forums/topic/37943-ghost-recon-wildlands-event-announcement-xb1/ As always, you're free to contact me or any of the hosts if you require any assistance. Thank you all, cya at the events.

    Hey guys and gals!

    Anyone else playing or trying the beta? What are your thoughts and impressions so far? I'm really enjoying it thus far despite a few small bugs, which are expected of course before it's official release on March 7th. I've already pre-ordered it and it's loaded and ready to go on my system but wanted to know if anyone else here is planning to pick it up? Perhaps a bunch of us can do some co-op and play together? 

    Anyways let me know your thoughts and happy gaming

    Through teamwork and strategy, we will accomplish and overcome all challenges and missions presented to us in Wildlands. We will create a comfortable and fun gaming environment for all members to play in.
     
    Going into Wildlands, members should expect strategic gameplay. As Captain, along with the AJSA Xbox One Wildlands team, we will provide walkthroughs and tips to help make your gaming experience better. This is a realistic open world shooter, therefore it cannot be conquered by simple brute force and forced team play. We must work together as one.
     
    Members of the Xbox One Angry Army should expect official Wildland events on Sundays in March and April. Our first event will be on March 19th, 2017. Squad-up time will be at 6:30 pm EST.
     
    If you wish to participate in the events and/or are interested in off-event hour group activities, please don’t hesitate to contact me, Slade Bogaty. My forum name and Xbox Live Gamertag are the same.

  14. QwiK liked a post in a topic by RuneX in Battlefield 1 - Winter Update [Notes]   
    Battlefield 1's Winter Update is being rolled out today on Xbox One (additionally on PC & PS4). According to a GameSpot article, the Update will be around 2 GB. Can't wait to try out and experience all the new additions at the next event. Notes and comments from the article below:
    As outlined on the official Battlefield website, the Winter Update sees the return of ribbons from past Battlefield games. Additionally, Class Rank caps have jumped from 10 to 50, and you can earn new stuff for reaching your max class rank. Today's update also makes changes to Battlefield 1's rent-a-server program, tweaks weapon and vehicle balances, and includes a number of bug fixes.

    Additionally, you should no longer get killed by a horseback rider using a saber from "multiple meters away," while the gas duration has taken a big hit, dropped from 22 seconds to 15 seconds.

  22. RuneX liked a post in a topic by Kaz32 in For Honor review. Like it or not, depends on you.   
    The premise of this game is that one day, a giant earthquake happened that fucked up earth's resources. Only a few of them are left, and 3 factions, the Knights, Vikings, and Samurais are all fighting one another for that resources. They went to war with one another, ironically forgetting what they fought for the first time since thousands of years have passed and they seem to live long just fine. So they give up fighting and settle for peace. Until this badass woman of war Apollyon comes down to make them fight among each other once again. The intro sums it up perfectly.
     
    I can bet that most people know about this game already. It's a hybrid of hack and slash + fighting game with a multiplayer heavy gameplay. The matches in multiplayer are divided into 3 categories: Dominion which is basically "capture a teritory to accumulate points until 1 side gets the most points, in which case it becomes a sudden death of eliminating the opposition"; team deathmatch; and one on one duel. When you complete a match, you can get loots for your characters which gives them different stat boosts. And this game has 12

    Each with their own advantages and disadvantages. If you're a beginner at this game, I suggest playing using Vanguard characters like Raider, Kensei and Warden because they all have simple to use combos and are pretty durable. But if you're used to the game, Orochi is my next recommendation. Because that class is perhaps the best class in the game if you know how to avoid getting attacked as it can decimate enemies in an instant with his flashy Ninja + nimble Kenshin Himura moves.
     
    All of multiplayer and singleplayer are played using the in game fighting mechanic. Which can either be one of the most awesome combat mechanic for a one on one sword fight, or the most difficult thing to master and therefore too hard to play, depending on which person play it of course. The way it works is you lock on to an enemy, and then there's 3 directions that you can align your attacks or defense on: up, left and right. If you want to block or attack from above, you align your cursor up, and for other directions as well. You can do a guard break attack which negate blocking by enemies and give you room to attack, or you can do a guard break and then guard break enemies into a cliff or a spiked wall or other hazards which can deal heavy damage or outright kill them instantly. It really is one of those things that you have to try yourself to figure out. 
     
    I personally love this game's fighting mechanic. Duels with everyone, whether it is ai or other players feels great and intense, and the winner is determined purely by your own skill on mastering it just like mastering fighting games. I got so good at this game that I'm pretty much almost invincible in one on one duel matches with other players. Which makes this game one of the only multiplayer games that I'm really good at. HAHAHAHA!
     
    Sorry. I usually get my ass kicked in multiplayer.
     
    So I talked about multiplayer, but what about singleplayer? Well I can say that for most people singleplayer is alright. It has 18 missions, which has 6 missions for each of the 3 factions which lets you play as the Vanguard classes the most, like the Warden and the Raider, while having 1 stages for other 2 classes in between. With the exception of the Samurai which lets you play the majority of the campaign as the Orochi. It can take you around 6 - 8 hours to complete the singleplayer depending on how fast and good you are at the game's combat and whether you collect the collectibles in this game or not. Think of the singleplayer as a beat em up game similar to Streets of Rage or Final Fight where you fight normal enemies along the way until you get to the end level bosses, only with a much more complex combat mechanic. The purpose of the singleplayer is to prepare you for the multiplayer battles ahead, so if you play the singleplayer, you are ready for the multiplayer. 
     
    Oho, but for me personally, I played the betas of this game's multiplayer before, and because I'm already pretty good at the game's combat against other players, singleplayer is where the real challenge lies. It has 4 difficulty settings. Easy, medium, hard and realistic which removes the indicators of where enemies will attack you, there is no checkpoint except very few missions so if you die you have to restart from the beginning of the stage, and the ai is generally much more aggressive and have much more varied moves. So you bet your ass that I play the singleplayer on Realistic difficulty, and FUCK ME, it is fucking hard. Like, it's so hard that if these ais are in multiplayer matches, they will whoop everyone's ass in an instant kind of hard. But at the same time it's also an intense and awesome way to play the game, especially when fighting the game's bosses which will kick your ass. The final boss for each factions are all really fun to fight. The last boss of the last faction is the absolute best of them all, and it gets even more fantastic once you put this song in for that fight.
    Trust me, it fits so damn well with the fight that you will feel incredible fighting the boss with this song.
     
    Only try the Realistic mode when you are truly ready, or if you find multiplayer to not be that challenging.
     
     
     
    One thing to note about the singleplayer is even though the story overall is alright and nothing special, the villain Apollyon is awesome. Sure she's pretty much a complete bitch who hates peace and wants the 3 factions to fight each other, but man can she back up her ego. She kicks ass at fighting, but she is also a cunning strategist as well that makes everyone her bitch in this game, and I want to see a villainous character like her in future games. A female villain who's both strong and smart as hell? That's pretty rare these days where female villains are either high school bitches, or women which manipulates things from the shadows but can't fight as well as the heroes.
     
    The negative of this game is pretty much depended on whether you like this game's combat mechanic or not. If you have played this game's beta before and you find the combat to be not to your liking, then you will not like this game. Simple as that. The soundtrack is also pretty lacking. Nothing epic even though the set pieces this game has is pretty damn awesome which lead me to put my own epic soundtrack that fits into the game. Oh and for some reason, 4 vs 4 matches that are not dominion doesn't work right now. Like, I tried many times and I still can't get a 4 vs 4 deathmatch. WTF??
     
     
    Overall, this is a really fun game for me personally because I like the game's combat mechanic and am pretty good at it, and I find the singleplayer to be a really awesome challenge to play through. But because of how divisive this game is, if you people want to buy this game, I suggest getting it when it's much2 cheaper. Unless you saw how this game is played on youtube and want to play this game based on it which if that's the case, get the game now! Just be ready to master the combat first before entering the battlefield. I give this game my rating of "so awesome I will play it again and again".

    AJSA Xbox One Division - Overwatch Tournament - March 25th, 2017
    To celebrate a near year's worth of events, I'm proud to announce that we will be holding a 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.

    The tournament will see teams made up of three players. You may make a team with people that are not registered members of the AJSA however a no show may result in forfeit and a loss towards your record. You will have a few weeks to make your teams while we iron out the final details of the tournament.
    Rules, Guidelines & General Info
    Plenty of time will be given for people to register their teams. They can register their teams by replying to this thread or personally contacting the tournament lead AJSAWookieJedi. Please include your team name and members. Please also include a point of contact/Captain for your team. Captains will be contacted prior to the tournament to confirm times and dates. Teams will be limited to three players. Please note a no show may result in forfeit and a loss towards your record. The tournament will likely take place on the day we traditionally hold our Overwatch events (Saturday night). We may extend the Tournament to encompass the whole weekend depending on participate/team registrations. Each match will be spectated by a Tournament Supervisor. Tournament Supervisors will be designated by the Tournament Host, WookieJedi. Hero stacking is not allowed in the Tournament. Arcade rules will not apply.
