Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Kinda. They have a wired "base" receiver. Looks like it's IR to me, you have to point in the general direction of the receiver for it to work.

    Yes, it's your basic IR setup. The receiver goes into one of the USB ports.

    I've never had a problem, though. I even turn the controller sideways when doing Dis or Dat for quicker/easier reactions. Just don't put your hand over the transmitter window thingy.

    Sorry if this has been asked a million times over, but I want to make sure since the OP has confused me.

    The official word, as far as I knew, was that the Buzz controllers on PS3 were not supported by YDKJ. But there's this statement in the OP:
    The superior versions of this game are probably the PS3 and 360.

    Big button controllers have support here, but not on PC. Additionally, the layout changes when the game autodetects you are using your nerdy trivia controller in order to make things easier for you. A nice touch, to be sure.

    What are the big button controllers for the PS3, if not the Buzz buzzers?

    While the "Big Button" controllers work on the 360 version of the game, there's no PS3 equivalent to those that is compatible. For whatever reason Jellyvision didn't support the Buzz controllers, though there's likely more of those out in consumers hands than the big button controllers.

    scene-it-big-button-pad-2.jpg

    Personally I bought a Scene It game specifically for those controllers to use with YDKJ, and I'm still trying to find a complete list of what games work with 'em, with little luck.

    As far as I know your list o' games is:
    Scene-It
    Scene-It 2
    UNO
    1 vs 100 (when it was around)
    Wits and Wagers
    YDKJ

    Hmm. I'm terrible at the Scene It games and I already own Uno so I guess I'll have to look into Wits & Wagers.

    $20 at Gamestop through next Thursday.

    While I already own the 360 version, I'm thinking I might pick up the DS one for the girlfriend, as she doesn't own any of the consoles.

    So I actually saw a copy of the DS version on the shelf at GameStop while I was picking up my Celebi.

    Two players max, using the same DS (one used the D pad, the other the buttons). WTF. Way to phone that one in, guys.

    DS seems one step below the PC version (less questions, same limitations) but (slightly more) portable.

    Did a little two player local play this weekend.

    Its somewhat frustrating that you cant play on xbox live with more than 1 local player, using xbox live to fill out the roster of four.

    The gaminess aspects of this are kind of weird, in that the "bad answer of the game" is such a huge swing, and the Jack Attack pretty much invalidates the previous scores.

    But that all said I had a good time and will trivia often.

    Jack Attack always had the possibility of invalidating everything else. And previously there were the Impossible Questions.

    Had a YDKJ party with some of my buddies today. All of us are veterans of PAX Prime, but can't afford PAX East, so we called it "Well have our OWN PAX! With You Don't Know Jack! And Hookers!"

    hammered out like 10 episodes, good times.

    So with these Scene-It controllers, which games have them? Does Bright Lights, Big Screen? Move control would be fun.

    Additionally, do either of have a need to win? Because if you can play together to enjoy the humor, you're fine. If either of you needs to win, it will end in heartache.

    As it was stated so elegantly earlier in the thread, if you're looking at the score in this game, you're playing it wrong.

    I hate to be the dude to register and bump a super old thread, but I'm hoping one of you folks can help me out. I found this thread a few weeks ago when I was considering buying the game and was really happy to see so many people stoked about a "new" YDKJ title...well, new a year ago. I'm late to the party, but just as stoked.

    Somehow the stars aligned and my search for a cheap enough copy of the game ended up with me winning it in a weekly contest over at gamedealdaily dot com(insert spam dot jpeg here). What I didn't realize was that I was getting a disc only copy of the game. I'd piss and whine and complain, but that would be ridiculous. Free Jack is free Jack, even if he's naked.

    What I'm wondering is if one of you fine people here might be willing to scan the boxart for me or even put it on thecoverproject site and I'll get it from there. I have a few disc only games which do not sit proudly on display with the rest of my collection, but this is Jack. Cookie deserves better. Right? Right.

    Thanks in advance for your help, and sorry again for the bump. Well, I'm only mostly sorry. Shouldn't you really get the game back out and play it again? You sure should.

    EDIT: I'm a genius and failed to mention I'm looking for art for the 360 version.

    I'm not crazy about playing online because I always question the amount of lag, if any, during the final round's answering procedures.

    Same problem with me here.
    House rules: Nocren ALWAYS answers last for the first 10 questions.
    Nocren, if he knows the answer to the Attack question, must wait until the last possible moment before buzzing in.

    Most of the time, I still win :D

    Maybe a bit overpriced? $10 got you a couple of new episodes and there were several packs.

    I also picked up the iOS version for singleplayer Jack on the go.

    newSig.jpg
  • eggwolioeggwolio Registered User
    Maybe the price dropped over time, but the DLC doesn't seem like a bad deal to me. $5/pack on 360. Each pack has ten episodes, and there's four packs. Original retail on the game was $30, I think, for 73 episodes. $20 more for 40 doesn't seem too bad to me, but I might be biased since I got the game for free. I'll certainly be buying them. Every little bit I can do to encourage them to make a sequel. Which I'll hopefully buy sometime before it's been out for a year and threads about it on the internet are super wicked old.
