Minecraft Is The Top YouTube Game Of 2019, Thanks To A Boost From PewDiePie

It’s not like Minecraft ever really went anywhere. But it definitely spent the past handful of years less firmly entrenched in the zeitgeist than in the first half of the decade. Not so in 2019. The blocky game about digging holes and punching the ever-loving shit out of trees is back on top of YouTube, leaving even Fortnite in its dust.

As part of its annual Rewind feature, YouTube put out a...

Epic Finally Releases Fortnite Patch Notes

Epic Finally Releases Fortnite Patch Notes

Today, developer Epic published some details about what’s contained in Fortnite’s latest 11.20 patch. Epic calls the notes a “battle royale update” rather than the usual “patch notes,” which have been notably absent since the game’s Chapter 2 started in mid-October.

The notes for patch 11.20 are sparse compared to past seasons’ patches. Daily challenges are back, and you can search your locker...

In The Era Of 'Live' Games Like Fortnite And Overwatch, Sequels Are Changing

In The Era Of 'Live' Games Like Fortnite And Overwatch, Sequels Are Changing

There was a time when a sequel meant something. I don’t mean that in a wistful, “back in my day” sort of way. I mean that it largely meant one thing: A separate, new game with a shiny “2” somewhere in its title. Then expansions blurred the line, and patches blurred it even more. Now a new generation of sequels is stomping the line clean out of existence.

In the past month, we’ve seen three...

Epic’s New Hero-Collecting Game Seems Fine, Has Vague Connections To Fortnite

Epic’s New Hero-Collecting Game Seems Fine, Has Vague Connections To Fortnite

The most striking thing about Battle Breakers, Epic Games’ new free-to-play collectible character role-playing game for PC and mobile devices, is its rocking ‘90s cartoon style opening, complete with theme song lyrics. “Monsters from the sky / want us all to die / they’re hidin’ underground / now they must all be found.” Good stuff. The game itself? It’s okay.

I have played dozens of games...

Facing Burnout, Stress, And Health Issues, Top Twitch Streamers Are Taking Extended Breaks

Last year during E3, streaming megastar Tyler “Ninja” Blevins took two days off from his regular schedule. A blip on the radar in the grand scheme of things. It cost him 40,000 paying subscribers . This seemed to issue a grim warning to other streamers: Take time off at your own peril.

Recently, though, it’s begun to feel like that tide is starting to turn—at least if you’re a big streamer...

Here's What's New In Fortnite's Chapter 2

Fortnite Chapter 2 is finally here, and the mystery deepens: developer Epic has only released some vague patch notes, as opposed to the usual detailed rundown of changes that accompanies each season. While it’s been fun to discover things for myself, it has also been confusing. Here are some changes I’ve noticed or seen players talking about so far.

If you, like me and the rest of the internet, are staring at Fortnite’s black hole waiting for something to happen, you can enter the Konami code to play a mini-game. It’s simple, but it beats sitting around.

As captured by Fortnite News, entering the Konami code brings up an old-school shooter minigame where a slice of pizza and a pineapple-shooting burger face off. It’s a reference to the...
