Fortnite Fans Have Harsh Words for Season 10’s Mechs

The B.R.U.T.E. mech is one of the most prominent additions to Fortnite Battle Royale Season 10, and it hasn’t taken long for fans to express just how much they dislike it and other changes that have come to Fortnite’s latest season.

The B.R.U.T.E is a two-person bipedal vehicle where one player controls its movement while the other is in charge of its weapons – though a single player can operate it alone by switching between moving and attacking. Capable of firing powerful missiles and shotgun blasts, fans consider the addition to be highly overpowered, and even the most accomplished Fortnite pros are frequently falling to its barrages.

Even those who prefer building can’t easily escape its reign of destruction, as it can tear through buildings and built objects with ease. They can, of course, be destroyed, but their considerable firepower, solid pool of health and Overshield mechanic make that a difficult task.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Devs Comment on Battle Royale

Last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 included the Blackout battle royale mode, which turned out to be a polished take on the formula that worked really well. But Blackout won’t be part of this year’s Modern Warfare reboot, and it sounds like the developer at Infinity Ward didn’t consider including it. At the multiplayer reveal this week, Joe Cecot, the multiplayer design director, told IGN that Modern Warfare and Black Ops 4 just have very different vibes.

“We really focused on Modern Warfare, authentic and gritty, realistic weapons, and it’s a different experience. It’s really…just about pulling back to Modern Warfare and keeping that pure,” Cecot said.

Roblox Hit 100 Million Monthly Players, Surpassing Minecraft

Roblox achieved a new milestone after announcing the game has surpassed 100 million monthly active users. This puts Roblox Corporation’s game creator ahead of Minecraft.

“Roblox began with just 100 players and a handful of creators who inspired one another, unlocking this groundswell of creativity, collaboration, and imagination that continues to grow,” Roblox Corporation CEO and founder David Baszucki said in a press release.

Roblox was released in 2006, three years before Minecraft was released in 2009. Both games share a DNA influenced by Lego toys, but aside from their blocky aesthetics are relatively separate games.

Showtime’s Halo TV Series May Reveal Master Chief’s Face

After several delays and false starts, a live-action Halo TV series is finally moving forward at Showtime. While the studio says it will stay true to the source material, there is one area that might make a big departure from the games: Master Chief’s face.

“There’s all kinds of new drama that we will be exploring but we will stay faithful to the canon,” Showtime president Gary Levine told Deadline at the annual Television Critics Association. “We’re not going to violate anything that’s in the canon.”

However, Showtime may cross one line neither Bungie nor 343 Industries have walked over yet: showing Master Chief’s face.

Neo Geo Mini Samurai Shodown Limited Edition Set Review

The Neo Geo Mini is one of the coolest retro mini consoles designs, and the Samurai Shodown Limited Edition (See it on Amazon) takes the self-contained mini-arcade cabinet and flexes a little extra design muscle.

It’s a really comprehensive retro mini machine. Inside you’ll find 40 Neo Geo games, including every Samurai Shodown game released for the system, which comes as no surprise since this is a special edition built around the series.

But there’s a whole slew of other classic Neo Geo fighting games, including The King of Fighters ’97, ’98 and ’99. In fact, 20 of the 40 included games are fighters, but you’ll also find the first 3 Metal Slug games and other games you may have forgotten about or never heard of in the first place. But is it more than just a novelty for hardcore Neo Geo collectors? We put it through its paces to find out.
