Anybody home?

Postby Nad » Feb 25th, 2018 at 5:59 pm

Just checking in. Seems more dead than usual around these parts. How is everyone?

I spend my gaming time playing Fortnite. Pretty fun game from Epic, and its free.

All the action is in the IRC channel and on the NetHack servers ;)

Doing well, keeping busy as usual. Never heard of Fortnite... what's it about Nad?

So Fortnite is a battle royale style game. Solo, duo or 4 person squads. 100 people drop into an island. A giant flying bus passed over the island, everyone jumps out where they want and parachutes to their desired landing spot. You start off with a pickaxe, and have to scramble to quickly arm up. Over time, a storm comes and reduces the playable area to a small circle on the map, funneling all remaining players towards the center of the map. Last man/team standing wins.

It is free to play. There is an ecommerce component for cosmetics, and they also sell a season battle pass where you get a bunch of challenges for $9.50 and earn cool gear/emotes/dances.

Its fun. What I like best about it is I can log in and play for 10-15 minutes, or 3-4 hours, and its all the same. No character progression, time invested doesn't give you an edge besides your own skill. Each character is equipped the same at the start and loot is RNG.

It is basically the same concept as PUBG but with an added minecraft-y building component. I've never played either of those games but my 16 year old keeps me informed :P.
