I Think I'm In Love With Fortnite's New Cat

I Think I'm In Love With Fortnite's New Cat

Fortnite’s Season 2 battle pass is full of colorful new characters, including one you can customize in thousands of unique ways. I don’t care about any of them. I only care about this ripped cat.

This is Meowscles, the level 60 battle pass reward. He’s one of the new skins that has a built-in bonus feature. In this case, he can flex his pecs. His cat pecs.

Now, I’m not a furry, but I’m...

Fortnite's Season 2 Brings NPC Enemies And Battle Pass Changes [Updating]

After a long Season 1, Fortnite’s Season 2 is here. Without patch notes, players are still piecing the changes together, but there are new areas on the map with NPCs to battle, some new items, and new ways to customize your skins.

Season 2 is called “Top Secret,” and it’s spy-themed. Lore-wise, there are two factions, Ghost and Shadow, who are fighting. The battle pass menu has changed and is...

Epic Boss' Confusing Comments About Games And Politics Don't Add Up

Epic Boss' Confusing Comments About Games And Politics Don't Add Up

Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney gave the keynote speech at this week’s DICE conference in Las Vegas. The talk touched on many topics, including data privacy, loot boxes, and the problems with a lack of cross-platform games. It also seemed to call for keeping politics out of games, or at least out of marketing, or something.

What tied the various threads of Sweeney’s speech in front of a conference...

Counter-Strike's Dust, Remade In Fortnite

Counter-Strike's Dust, Remade In Fortnite

It’s one of the most iconic maps in all of video games, and soon Counter-Strike’s famous Dust stage will be playable in Fortnite’s creative mode thanks to the work of some expert modders.

Team Evolve have brought the map as faithfully as Fortnite’s tools will allow, and seeing as the map will also allow creative mode’s Search and Destroy game type, you’ll be getting pretty damn close to an...

Please Stop Quitting Before I Can Revive You

Please Stop Quitting Before I Can Revive You

I’m not the most aggressive battle royale player, but I put a lot of effort into supporting my team. I stick close to my squad, share my loot, and heal my teammates whenever I can. In games where downed players can be brought back, like Apex Legends or Fortnite, I always go out of my way to revive them and keep the team intact. Sometimes, though, my teammates don’t give me that chance.

In Apex...

Leaving Fortnite Challenges Unfinished Stresses Me Out

Leaving Fortnite Challenges Unfinished Stresses Me Out

Fortnite’s current season is coming to an end, at long last, on February 20. This means players only have a few weeks left to complete in-game challenges that earn them cosmetics and other rewards. I don’t want any new loot, but I can’t stop doing the challenges.

Fortnite challenges are in-game activities you do to earn specific emotes, skins, sprays, banners, and load screens. They’re grouped...

Fortnite Players Divided Over Whether Streamer Cheated In Charity Tournament

Streamer Nicholas “NickEh30” Amyoony has been accused of cheating during a Fortnite game in last week’s charity Twitch Rivals Streamer Bowl. In a clip circulating online, Nick and his duos partner, NFL player David Morgan, can be heard discussing what sounds like a plan to land in an off-limits part of the map.

Epic Will Punish Fortnite Opponents Who Signal Each Other

Epic Will Punish Fortnite Opponents Who Signal Each Other

Earlier this week, Fortnite released new rules to attempt to curb cheating in competitive play. The new guidelines relate to a player behavior called “signaling,” which means communicating with opponents. Fortnite doesn’t allow for voice chat between opponents, so players use other means to communicate, like jumping or swinging their pickaxe. On the surface, these new rules against signaling...

Big-Headed Anime Fortnite Figures Are Coming

Big-Headed Anime Fortnite Figures Are Coming

Japanese toymaker Good Smile Company makes big-headed anime figures out of everything from Blizzard hero shooters to scary clown movies. It was only a matter of time before they started in on Fortnite. Already big-headed, the bright pink cuddle team leader is a great place to start.

I don’t play Fortnite, but I love the character designs, especially Cuddle Team Leader. What’s not to love...

Fortnite Has Blizzards Now

Fortnite Has Blizzards Now

Fortnite has gotten into the winter spirit. Snow covers sections of the map, there are Christmas trees to dance in front of, and the Winterfest event features a cabin with presents to open. As of today, blizzards are occasionally whiting out portions of the map.

I didn’t encounter any blizzards during the inexcusable amount of Fortnite I played yesterday, so they appear to be new additions....

Fortnite's Star Wars Event Was Weird, But Cool

Today, after a rough start, Fortnite’s in-game movie theater showed a brief clip from the upcoming film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Director J.J. Abrams and Game Awards host Geoff Keighley also made a live appearance.

The event took place at Risky Reels, Fortnite’s drive-in. Prior to the event, Fortnite’s servers struggled under the load, with many—including myself—unable to log in to...

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

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...
