: Review: The Jackbox Party Pack 4

I'm not sure how to classify the games Jackbox has been putting out for the past few years, but the company sort of invented a new genre. The Party Packs' casual games turn any device with a touchscreen and an internet connection into a controller, so the barrier to entry is nearly nonexistent. They're great to play even with friends or family who don't consider themselves gamers, and the experience is usually fun enough people are willing to come back again and again.

Last year, The Jackbox Party Pack 3 was one of my favorite releases. I wrote way too much about the game, justifying it to myself by reasoning that I was really doing five reviews all at once. I promised Chris I wouldn't do that this time, so let's get to it.

: Nintendo adds subtle 'games on sale' category to the Switch eShop

The Nintendo Switch UI has a long way to go. I totally appreciate that it's fairly minimal, which is actually an upgrade in a way from the absurdity of the modern console era (they're adding more clicks as we speak with firmware updates on PS4 and Xbox One), but a few big quality of life updates would go a long way.

One of the most requested features is a better eShop, not only from users who want to find games better, but developers who wish to have their works curated and not dumped into a giant list. One small ray of hope was added this very week actually, as the Switch eShop now has the option to view "Games on Sale."

Right now only a few titles come up and the sales aren't gigantic, but it's a start.

: Gearbox is hiring a writer for what is probably Borderlands 3

Borderlands and more recently Battleborn developer Gearbox Software is looking for a new writer. Specifically, a writer for an unannounced AAA game that sure sounds like it could be Borderlands 3.

"Gearbox is looking for someone to join the writing team for an unannounced AAA FPS/RPG hybrid with strong characters and central narrative thread.

The successful candidate will join the writing team to write, punch up and iterate scripts in-line with established story and plot outlines. Responsibilities will include writing dialogue for voice-over and in-game text for missions, flavor and user interfaces. A love for comedy writing with respect for a serious underlying plot is helpful."

: Age of Empires: Definitive Edition has been delayed to Spring 2018

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, which was slated to release Oct. 19, has been delayed into the tentative window of early 2018. The news was announced by the development team through a blog post on their website.

In the post, the developers cite a need to rework and modernize the gameplay before they feel comfortable with the final product. To achieve that goal, they, "will instead be inviting thousands more players from the community into our closed beta between now and launch to allow for more in-depth testing across single player campaign, multiplayer balance, fine-tuning the lobby, etc."

The team didn't share when the final release would fall, besides their goal of putting the game out by early 2018.

It looks like Microsoft may have jumped the gun in an effort to expedite the release of this game. AoE: DE was announced out of the blue at E3 2017, and received a release date mere months after that. The game probably needs a little more time in the oven, which seems implied in the developer post.

Sure, giving lots of players access to the closed beta might seem like a consolation prize, but given the development team's language concerning gameplay, they may actually need to fine-tune mechanics until they feel comfortable with the final product.

Hopefully all goes well, and players can get their hands on the game soon.

: Microsoft's Fall Update With Redesigned Xbox Dashboard Is Now Available To All

Microsoft has released the next big "Fall" update for the Xbox One, which focuses on speed and simplicity. Engadget reports: The first "Fluid Design" interface comes with a redesigned Home page, which is all about simplicity and customization. The top-level section has four shortcuts (your current game, two personalized suggestions, and a deal from the Microsoft store) and a horizontal carousel underneath. The biggest change, however, is the new "Content Blocks" that sit below this screen. Scroll down and you'll find a series of large, visual panels dedicated to games and friends. These are completely customizable and act like miniature hubs for your favorite titles and communities. The quick-access Guide has been tweaked for speed, with small, horizontal tabs that you can slide between with the Xbox controller's LB and RB bumpers, D-pad or left thumbstick. If you launch the Guide while you're streaming or part of an active party, you'll also see the corresponding broadcast and party tabs by default. Other Guide tweaks include a new Tournaments section in the Multiplayer tab, which will summarize any official, professional or community tournaments that you've entered. In addition, Microsoft has overhauled the Community tab with a modern, grid-based layout. It's also tweaked the idle and screen dimming features that kick in when you walk away from the console momentarily. Larry Hryb, Xbox Live's Major Nelson and Mike Ybarra, the Platform Engineer, have posted a walkthrough video on YouTube highlighting all the major new changes.
