Fortnite Battle Royale is heading to mobile devices very soon, features PS4 and PC cross-play

Lunastra78

So its mouse/keyboard VS controller VS touch controls? That doesn't sound very fair at all...

And while I'm all for cross-platform play for some titles, it's not really needed for such a popular title is it? It seems there's a queue just to play on PS4 as it is.

I guess some players want to play with friends on other devices, but you still wouldn't have a party chat or way to communicate unless you set up a skype party or similar?

Or am I missing something here? Educate me please ;)

The secret ingredient that unites Dark Souls, Crackdown, Zelda and Fez

Lunastra78

Nice article. I can remember most of the Souls games layout fromn bonfire to bonfire, but for Ubisoft or Bethesda games I only have some pictures in my head of the grandest locales.

On that subject, are there any games where you are given a map, but have to figure out where you are on it without live icons?

I was thinking that would be a good fit for a Battle Royale game (the actual BR) if you have to figure out where the hell you are by referencing a map before that zone will trigger your exploding necklace and kill you dead.

If this mode will make more people enjoy the game, then its all good! As for me I would have found it a bit boring without any danger.

As others said this game has a good story, but it also has something much rarer in games, or any kind of entertainment really - a satisfying ending!

PUBG, Fortnite Battle Royale and the question of how new genres form

Lunastra78

3 months ago

Battle Royale - the book, is the origin of the genre. But the movie was what made a cultural impact. Hunger games came much later, although its author claimed no knowledge of BR (bullshit).

It is not free-for-all. Well if it is... then Rocket League is Pong.

We'll see many BR-like games and modes in other games soon, and if we're lucky some of them will evolve the genre.

Looking forward to those first few weeks/months of hunting.

That's when big online co-op games like these are at their best, imo. When players are experimenting and learning and just having fun.

Before everyone is min/maxing equipment, being intolerant of anyone not having perfect weapons (gjallarhorn syndrome) and otherwise feeling like gaming royalty.

Yup those first days are the best, bugs be damned.

Free-to-play PS4 hack-and-slasher Let It Die is holding a World of Tanks collaboration event

Lunastra78

5 months ago

World of Tanks has collaborated with Valkyria Chronicles and Girls Und Panzer (some kind of anime, I believe) before, so it's not totally out of character.

The thing is, WoT's playerbase is to a very large degree male, and also a bit older than most competitive shooters. So Wargaming (who makes WoT) very much want to appeal to new players, especially younger ones and female gamers. Therefore we get these crossovers. Or that's what I believe anyway...

And yeah I agree, premium ammo is total bullshit.

How the devs behind Driveclub plan to bring the arcade racer back to life

Lunastra78

5 months ago

Personally, I've gotta say the emphasis on stunts puts a damper on my excitement for this game. Stunts, drifting etc are usually my least favorite modes in any racer, and skating games, SSX and the like have never been my cup of tea.

I'll wait and see how they implement it closer to release date. It is Evolution after all and I've really enjoyed those games of theirs.
