Fortnite: Search for Survivors

By Blackwalt - Posted on 17 July 2017

Anyone interested in picking up Fortnite should join in the Search for Survivors

EpicGames is running a Search for Survivors promotion. Sign up to unlock five in-game weapons before launch.

This may be worth it even if you are not planning to pickup Fortnite until the Free to Play option in 2018. Five extra weapons is five extra weapons. So far, only the first four have been unlocked: Bullseye, Bolt Slinger, Old Faithful, and Razor. I am still waiting on the Clipper, a pump action shotgun. Pictures and descriptions are after the break.

Fortnite pricing: no CDN surcharge for CDN Xbox Gamers

By Blackwalt - Posted on 15 July 2017

Xbox Store Canadian prices are the same as U.S. Prices for Fortnite

$39.99, $59.99, $89.99, $149.99$39.99, $59.99, $89.99, $149.99

I had trouble with the headline for this article trying to easily explain what is going on with Canadian Fortnite pricing. I hope it is fairly clear.

In a discussion online last night I discovered that Canadian Xbox gamers are getting an unexpected discount on Fortnite.

On the Official Fortnite Site the four available editions are priced at $39.99, $59.99, $89.99, and $149.99. All prices in U.S. Dollars.

On the Canadian Microsoft Store and in the Xbox Store the Fortnite Versions are priced at $39.99, $59.99, $89.99, and $149.99. All prices in Canadian Dollars. With the Canadian Dollar presently worth $0.79 American that is a significant discount for Canadian Xbox Gamers.

This is not the same for Canadian PC/Mac and Playstation Gamers.

Nerd Burglers: Fortnite Early Access Explained

By Blackwalt - Posted on 14 July 2017

Just making sure that Stormblade is properly informed

    We are about a fortnight away from the release of the Fortnite early access and there are a lot of things that seem a little bit unclear about the game. It is being called free to play, yet it costs money to buy. It releases on the 25th, but there is an early access to the early access. Here are some things you need to know about the game.

Only seven more days until Fortnite

That is, like, less than a week!

Someone make sure that Stormblade knows.

Sega Nite: Zombie Mode supports four players?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 13 July 2017

How did we not know this

SeanMCR! Stormblade! Graybush! Some other guy!

We played a long game of Verruckt ending up with round 22. Not bad by our standards. Please note that Graybush is dead last in headshots. Despite his laundry list of "reasons" this is not our norm. Please also note that Blackwalt was second. A vaguely close second. This is also not our norm.

The Verruckt game went late so we decided to play only one more game. One last, short game hopefully. So we decided to pick from our least favourite zombie maps. At first we picked Shangri La as it is our worst map but after deciding we might want to go a little longer than two minutes we switched to Shi No Numa.

Strange things are afoot at the DurrBurger

I was confused at the part where she yelled "Everyone! Get down!" I mean, who does that? We usually just fire directly into the masses whether friendly fire is on or not.

P.S.- still have not pre-ordered or decided on a version

Fortnite: the more you know

Despite my initial, possibly negative, reaction, Stormblade saying no to Fortnite shows that the HoC system is working

I usually post stuff here about games that interest me in hope of dragging some of you guys along. Particular interest is usually devoted to 4 player coop and, yes, zombies. In the case of Fortnite it was outside of our usual style so I posted as much info as I could find to allow for a properly educated decision. Stormblade said no which, while making me hate him more, is totally the point. Here is the information. You decide if it is right for you. It isn't. Job done. Move on. To Strange Brigade which he damn well better buy!

Me personally, I am still looking at picking it up. At the basic $39.99 standard version. Be aware, the retail, boxed version is the $59.99 deluxe edition scaled up to CDN dollars. The digital versions have the same price in CDN or USD.

For the rest of you still on the fence (which is how I translated Coxxorz's "Meh"), I have posted more info on Fortnite from the official page after the jump:

Sony busted using Xbox One footage

By Blackwalt - Posted on 06 July 2017

Pretty sure I have seen this happen both ways but this time it is Sony getting busted

Anthem is a game I have been watching since it was annouced at E3. This is why I caught this story and, admittedly, couldn't help laughing at it.

PlayStation YouTube hosts Xbox One X Anthem footage with Photoshopped buttons

    PlayStation's YouTube channel has uploaded the in-engine Anthem footage shown at E3 running on Xbox One X - but with poorly-Photoshopped PS4 buttons.

Please note: to no one's surprise the footage has since been removed.

Spotted lots of places but the one I found while posting was on N4G.

After having (finally) played enough SW: Battlefront to have made its purchase worthwhile, I was really looking forward to Battlefront II.

Until today.

Today I found out Battlefront II will be pay-to-win.

While this is a good video on how to play Fortnite, I found it gave me a much better idea of what the game is about.

I was pointed to this video from several separate users from the Fortnite Sub-Reddit.

I am officially confused by Fortnite's pricing

By Blackwalt - Posted on 02 July 2017

Eventually Fortnite will be free to play. Buying it now though...

Update: added links for purchasing. Many text corrections. Added details through comments.

So I followed up my interest in Fortnite by searching for prices. I did know it will be free to play eventually and I also saw on the Official Site that a bunch of different versions were available (screenshot above).

Figuring that the official website prices were in US dollars I popped by to see what my Amazon Prime membership would do for me.

EBGames is celebrating Canada's 150th with $1.50 used games

If Coxxorz wasn't too hungover from celebrating Canada Day he might have posted this

An anonymous source reported this with the additional comment, "Decent selection."

In store only. Your mileage may vary.

Fortnite is starting to pique my interest

By Blackwalt - Posted on 01 July 2017

While I was aware of the game it was always on the periphery

Don’t take shelter. Make It.

Listed as an "Action Building Game" is being described as a combination of Borderlands, Minecraft, and Sunset Overdrive. Also... zombies.

Although they call them monsters.

It is four player co-op and will become Free-to-play sometime in 2018. However, it will be selling as a retail game starting this month (July 2017). Standard pricing.

Of course, if someone wanted to send me an Xbox Code I would cover it and let you know if it is worth our trouble. Maybe we can finally wean Coxxorz off of his Ark addiction.
