Fortnite has been building to a pre-Season 10 event for a while now, and Saturday morning Epic Games once again delivered. For some, the expectation may have been a little too high as far as what effects the event would have on the game, but this was still something unique for players to enjoy. As rumored and speculated, the Fortnite season 9 event featured an alien creature appearing to seemingly wreak havoc on the map. The creature had a polar castle on top of its head, a single eye, and could far a massive laser blast. However, the creature’s opportunity to cause real damage was short lived as the mech/robot that was being constructed in Fortnite finally went online. Like something out of Pacific Rim, the robot and the monster did battle and eventually the robot claimed victory after brandishing a massive sword and impaling the creature. The robot then did a one-armed Floss dance and then rocketed off into the sky. The production value on these Fortnite events has always been … [Read more...] about Watch the Fortnite Robot vs Monster Battle World Event
Fortnite season 9 is near its end and so is the season challenge of finding 100 Fortbytes across the battle island. As of this writing, there are only two left to be found: #21 and #38. The latter will be revealed on July 17, but the most recent Fortbyte, #21, can be found now. This Fortbyte sees players returning to a place that has been in Fortnite for a long time and has itself been featured in various challenges. To find Fortbyte 21, Fortnite players will need to drop on the metal llama. Chances are, many will know where this landmark is, but for those who do not, it is located to the northwest of Junk Junction. The easiest method of finding Fortbyte 21 is to land on the metal llama’s back and go through the door that goes into its neck. Go through that door and down the small ramp on the other side to find Fortbyte 21. As a word of warning, however, the season is almost over, and this is one of the last Fortbytes to be found. This means that the metal llama may become a … [Read more...] about Fortnite: Where to Find Fortbyte 21 Inside the Metal Llama
The second quarter of 2019 was a time of change for video game streaming services, ushering in dramatic growth for some streaming services and games and newfound decline for others. According to streaming platform Streamlabs, despite Mixer and YouTube’s growth, there was a Twitch viewership decline during Q2 2019, marking the company’s first audience decrease in more than a year. According to Streamlabs‘ Q2 2019 report, total Twitch hours watched declined from 2.762 billion in Q1 2019 to 2.706 billion in Q2 2019 — a decline of 2%, or 56 million hours. That Twitch viewership decline might seem like a relatively small drop, but the platform’s hours watched previously grew from 2.544 billion in Q4 2018 to the Q1 2019 total, and Twitch has experienced similar growth quarter over quarter since Q1 2018. Similarly, Twitch’s hours streamed also saw it’s first decline in some time. The platform’s hours streamed decreased by 10% since Q1 … [Read more...] about Twitch viewership declines for first time in more than a year

Here we are in week 10 of Fortnite, which means this is the last week before Season 9 ends. There have been Fortbytes and Battle Stars aplenty, and many challenges now behind us. But the fun isn’t quite over yet. If you missed the Battle Star for week 9, don’t fret. It is still available for the taking. As usual, the location of the week 9 Battle Star is hidden in the Fortnite loading screen that players unlock after completing the week’s challenges. It is a lot more cutesy and relaxed than in previous weeks, with lots of pink hues, and even a lovely rainbow in the background. If players look below the bodacious skateboarder, they’ll spot the Battle Star as part of the graffiti. It’s resting on top of a car surrounded by control posts and ropes, which is exactly how it will appear in-game as well. Players will want to drop onto Mega Mall and navigate to the northwest entrance on the ground level. Just stroll on in and the car will be on display right in … [Read more...] about Fortnite: Season 9 Week 9 Battle Star Location
