Fortnite has taken over our world as we know it. It is everywhere surrounding us, you cannot escape it. It is infiltrating pop culture and every household you can imagine. If you are a male between the ages of 5 and 55, chances are you have played Fortnite. Even grandparents know about the Fortnite phenomenon. Kids these days are obsessed with this game, and Epic Games is capitalizing on it. One of the recent power moves is the release of Fortnite Nerf Blasters and Super Soakers, and I’m going to rank my top 5 right here, right now. Keep an eye out for these toys in a neighborhood near you. Honorable Mention: TS-R Super Soaker Water Blaster Pump Action This Super Soaker is based on the shotgun in the game. Expect to have short to mid-range with this weapon. It holds a liter of water and has pump-soakage with a…

Why? It’s a question that many gaming fans over the years have screamed in agony at every turn, and the newest target seems to be every time a new game gets announced and the main selling point is the Battle Royal experience. Why is there another one? Why would they waste their time in an already saturated market? Why did they think we need this? Why, why, why? Some say that it’s just because of the money, but I have a feeling that it’s a bit more complex than that. Before I dig too deep into that I want to make sure everyone is on the same page about what exactly makes a Battle Royal game. The term Battle Royal comes from the Japanese movie of the same name in which a group of high school students is placed on an island and forced to fight to the death, which…

So you got the game, the nice tv, and are ready to binge for hours on end. But games aren’t just about playing them, it’s about the experience. You can amplify your experience so much more than you realize, and I’m here to tell you how to take your video game experience to the next level. First up on the list is the chair. Your video game chair will be one of the most consistent aspects in your life. No matter how long you binge, what game you play, your chair will always be there to support you. Your choice of chair is crucial. A bean bag chair is an excellent option, and there are several gaming chairs out on the market as well. I’d recommend a futon if you are in a college dorm, but my personal favorite is a nice lazy boy styled recliner. That is the ideal…

So I have a problem with Apex Legends. The game has a severe learning curve and is extremely difficult to pick up at first. I have a few matches under my belt now, and by matches I mean surviving for a brief moment until I get killed by someone who actually knows what they’re doing. So my problem with Apex Legends is this: why is there no solo matchmaking at all? As one experienced in the art of team sports, I understand what Apex Legends is doing and I appreciate their idea of promoting the team over the individual. However, I find it hard to be able to experiment with the game and get comfortable with it when I have a team that is relying on me at all times. As someone who is currently not very skilled at the game, I would like a mode that would let me…

Below is literally a true to the title’s words list of 5 random games that people will argue that the games are better than Fortnight. I source this list from many previous conversations where I was just asking for my friends to work hard on their epic victory royales and really bring in that chicken dinner, but alas they instead tell me: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild… is better than Fortnite. Metacritic gives it a 97 and literally any video gamer that you talk to who is a true video gamer that has played it will also give it around a 97 because it’s truly an amazing game. For the Nintendo Switch / Wii U, it pushes what you can do with colors and the world even on hardware that’s always last gen. H1Z1 – Not Battle Royale … is better than Fortnite. Much like Firefly, H1Z1…

Now I can already tell I will not gain favor with a good portion of the internet for this one but it is my opinion as a writer so gosh darn it I’ll say it. I, like many others, decided to try out Respawn Entertainments latest game Apex Legends and I have to say I hate the trend of every AAA including a Battle Royal mode but in this instance, I actually enjoyed my experience playing. The game feels a little out of balance at times, nothing that can’t be fixed with a few updates, but the game attempts to be as fair in that balance as possible such as making team revives possible but still requiring some skill, and luck. In addition, when you drop into the map a screen pops up not only telling you where you dropped but the quality of loot that will be there which…

I just downloaded Apex Legends yesterday, and if I had only one thing to say about it so far, it would have to be I have no idea what I’m doing. The concept is interesting, with squads of three with each character having their own “Legend” character with a particular class/skill. This game could be extremely popular, but I don’t know if it will take over Fortnite like they hope. Although there is a tutorial upon starting the game, I found myself struggling during actual gameplay. The tutorial just runs you through the basics, and there’s no way of finding out what each individual Legend is capable of. I have no earthly idea what their unique abilities and skills are aside from the general description of what they do (although it looks like their website tells you). So for now I just pick out which character looks coolest to me. It’s…
