Oh boy. I soooooo hope they're 108kb unlock keys. Jack Pack, Jack Pack 2, and Jack Pack 3.
I'd imagine they are since the achievements are already listed when you boot up the game. No title update or anything.

When you were playing online did the Jack Attack get a little wonky on you? Choppy and stuttering a bit?

Re: You Don't Know Jack YDKJ to Return?

If you're still on the fence, here's my review: http://www.gamerswithcasts.com/revie...know-jack-360/

Also, Official Xbox Magazine gave it an 8/10. No other reviews yet...

Yeah this isn't one that really needs reviews, just hearing it's episodic and they didn't fuck up the YDKJ formula means it's for me

Re: You Don't Know Jack YDKJ to Return?

Can you play "couch vs. couch" online? In other words, two people locally playing online against two other people? This is one of those rare games that my wife might actually want to play, and it would be fun to get two other players through Live.

Re: You Don't Know Jack YDKJ to Return?

Mine shipped from Amazon yesterday sometime with a EDD of tomorrow. However since we're getting somewhere between 5 and 10 inches of snow in the next 24 hours, I doubt I'll see it until Friday at the earliest

I actually haven't received any mail or deliveries since last Monday (January).

Looks like the DLC is up for 400 points. Not sure if it's all 4 packs or not yet.

DLC on launch date is a pet peeve of mine.

Re: You Don't Know Jack YDKJ to Return?

Well, the game is only $30 and the DLC is $5 so it's not too bad.

Update: The DLC is 208MB and will not download yet. It took my points and then gives and error while trying to download.

Re: You Don't Know Jack YDKJ to Return?

Coincidentally, I earned 400 MS points via Bing Rewards this morning. Sweet. (Though I do agree that DLC available on release date is suck.)

Good to hear that the Scene It controllers work since I don't have a second normal controller and none of my out-of-area Xbox-owning friends seem interested in the game.

It did that earlier when I was having issues with Live - this reconnection was silky smooth.

I think you can, as long as you both have a Live account?

I don't have local friends to play with in order to see. Or a couch.

No idea what this site is or how they got into the Metacritic rankings, but here's their 9/10 review: http://www.totallygn.com/2011/02/08/...w-jack-review/

Re: You Don't Know Jack YDKJ to Return?

Well I got annoyed that it hadn't shipped from Amazon.com so I canceled that order and bought it from Best Buy using some old GCs. $29 there too.

The humor is hit or miss, as it always has been, but is more hit. The questions this time are quite excellent. Considering the first question in the first round is about
Spoiler:
number of Earths you can fit in Uranus
it felt like nothing had changed since the last time I played. to that. To note, not all 73 episodes are unlocked on startup, I think you start off with 10 or so.

The manual actually says they'd prefer you to play them in the order in which they've listed them, for whatever reason. Not sure why you'd want to jump around anyway...

Re: You Don't Know Jack YDKJ to Return?

Sadly this classically profane moment probably isn't in the new version.
