Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is Here

Today was the long awaited first day of Fortnite‘s Chapter 2 Season. Players have waited through Epic games longest season to date. We found ourselves looking for things to do once we finished all the challenges, and honestly there were quite a few. Yet even without challenges the game proves itself quite addicting. Even though Battle Royals seems to have no point it definitely is competitive.

Season 2 Chapter 2

This seasons theme seems to center around gold, fiends and henchmen. It now has a new Chaos engine, though personally I don’t see a difference. However we have to remember, it’s day one. Overall I think it will grow on me.

I definitely like the aesthetics of the game. It looks great, I’m more talking about the cut seems. As for the map, to me it seems pretty much the same with a few items added, some taken away. I still can find my way around the map and maybe stumble on some new landmarks. The battle pass is worth it, has a lot of skins and emotes, much like last season.

Peely in his suit.

As I said overall I like the game, I’m not quite happy that they have removed the snipers from solo games and still left grey guns in that mode. Now in rumble you have blue or better guns in the game and sniper rifles. Why it’s this way, I do not know. I’m hoping that they one day soon put in some transportation, these speed boats only work if the river is going to where you’ll be out of the storm. I see heli pads around but no helicopters as of yet. Day one is a mixed bag of likes and dislikes. I do think Epic listens to its players so we may see some patches soon. What are your thoughts?

Cyberpunk 2077, Keanu Reeves

It’s been weeks, months, years that we have been waiting for Cyberpunk 2077. Now with that being said I am very pleased that Keanu Reeves is joining the games. I don’t know if that was the plan all along or if it just came up recently. Either way, I’m pretty happy with it. If you are attending E3 this year, CD Project Red has announced that they will be having demos on the show floor and b behind closed doors. his may be on I will try to play. I’ve waited so long for this game.

We finally have a release date of April 20, 2020. That isn’t too far away and it makes me happy that we don’t have to wait too much longer. For those of you that aren’t familiar with the game, in Cyberpunk you are a customizable mercenary v. It is set in a dystopian Night City in California. It is an open world game with 6 distinct regions, played in a first person perspective.

I do not believe that Cyberpunk will have a mulitplayer mode, however if the story is strong, we won’t need one. There is alot of hype around this game, more than I could write here, but I will leave the trailer below.

What’s Ahead For Fortnite Season 8?

New Season of Fornite is on the Horizon

Fortnite by Epic Games came to the gaming community in a very sly way. Most didn’t know what to think of it. It was a different type of game. It introduced us to what we now know as Battle Royale. 99 people ride in a floating bus over a multitude of landscapes, jump out and then it’s every one for themselves. What I found different is that we didn’t land with any weapons, therefore we had some quick looting to do, and hopefully find something worth our time.

First things first, the release date February 27, 2019. So we have 5 days to complete those easy sounding but oh so difficult challenges. One thing I like about Fortnite is that it always has a challenge for you to do. It’s never a boring or repetitive game. While you do build and loot etc, there is a thought process that goes into playing the game.. Without a game plan you won’t get too far.

One of the best things, in my opinion is all the different outfits you can put on your character. Now that does get costly but sometimes you just need a change. I do recommend doing this only if you really like the”bling” and can afford it. There are a lot of items you can earn, free. If you just like playing, I’d do that, since the actual pieces you are buying do not add any extra protection or unattainable abilities, its strictly cosmetic.

What can we expect in Season 8. One change is that if you completed all the required challenges you can earn season 8 for free. Which is nice, since it does run about $25.00 a season. We are speculating the theme this season will be medieval. As we all know we are playing in the snow, so its pretty safe to say spring is right around the corner.

Season 8 is going to be challenging. We’ve been at this for a while, and I think they are making it a bit harder to play. It might even be a sort of Game of Thrones tone. Now here is one thing I’m reading and I think its confirmed. If not, I apologize. The planes will be vaulted in season 8, meaning there won’t be any planes. Some people hate them, some love them. Others use them to their advantage. The map is big it is an easy, yet loud way to traverse the terrain. What are your thoughts?

Below is a concept trailer for season 8. Fortnite is known to switch things up, so this may change. Only time will tell. Till then. Check this out.

Zelda: Link’s Awakening is Heading for the Switch

Nintendo is announcing quite a few new and exclusive titles from Mario Maker 2 to Zelda: Link’s Awakening. This title is a beloved Gameboy classic and many fans are ecstatic to hear it is being remade for the Switch this year.

Official Zelda Link’s Awakening Trailer

I grew up playing Zelda on the first ever released Nintendo. What I love about Zelda is the music, the gameplay and the story. It brings back memories of childhood, even just by listening to this trailer I’m transported back 30 years.

It looks at if Nintendo has made some major improvements, especially graphically. Which is to be expected since at the time of its original release the gaming community was honestly just a fledgling.

Zelda: Links Awakening basically tells the story of Link being stranded on Koholint Island. It came out in 1993, (yes 26 years ago) but Zelda, Link, those are timeless characters with storylines that are engaging and this will definitely be a game that I, along with many other people will be playing.
