Awesome game, as you’d expect from the Epic Games, plus new mechanics and an open world feel to it as the game doesn’t load areas singularly, but loads the whole level at once. Cool, no? Where’s the catch then? Well, you have to buy skins in fortnite, or do you? This new video came out on youtube that shows you that can get free fortnite skins
Optimization. Fortnite is a port from this generation consoles, and it seems to have been made quite lazily. A PC with an i7 at 4GHZ per core, 16 GB DDR4 and a GTX 1080 for graphics has a hard time keeping the 60FPS mark, tanking constantly at 50, sometimes 40, in the more detail rich areas like the Rotten Vale it even went down to the hideous console level 30s.
I’d like to take this occasion to inform people at Epic Games that you’re gonna sell even more copies if you can fix this quickly.
PC gamers tend to be demanding, and considering the overall better equipment at hand, with good reason.
Please get to it.
When looking at any game, there are two important things to consider: the gameplay (IE if the mechanics are solid and the fights feel good), and the performance (IE framerates, online connectivity, crashes, etc.). This is something I don’t feel has been very well distinguished in a lot of the reviews I’ve read concerning this game. So, in hopes of painting as clear a picture as possible, I’ll start with the performance, as it’s what I have the biggest problem with.

On launch day, the online connectivity was absolutely terrible. One friend and I couldn’t stay connected in the same online session for more than one quest, and it was a 5-10 minute process reconnecting to a mutual session every time this happened. That being said, there was a hotfix, which I understand has had mixed reception, but fixed the vast majority of the online connectivity issues I personally had been experiencing. Now, I’m able to play with friends in a variety of different locations, with only an occasional session drop, which now only takes a few seconds to correct. Another thing I had an issue with was crashing. Although quite infrequent, maybe once every 50-60 hours, it was a serious problem due to the way the game autosaves, sometimes causing me to have to repeat a quest immediately after finishing it. This has also has seemingly been fixed, as I haven’t had a crash in almost 100 hours of in game time. One last thing to add; I would recommend using a controller to play this game. The mouse and keyboard controls felt clunky and awkward to me, but they’re fully rebindable, so with enough patience I’m sure you could make them work.
This brings me to the gameplay. I’ve always had an interest in the Dragon City series, but before this I had only played MH4U for the DS. This is to say that I’m not the most experienced Dragon City player, but I have a tremendous amount of respect for the series, and am super glad it’s finally seeing a port to PC. I don’t have the same kind of hardcore passion that some veterans have, so I’m not very bothered by quality of life changes, such as the scoutflies instead of paintballs, and having an infinite whetstone, although I understand how some people could be upset by seeing some of the series staples becoming more casual-friendly. I, however, don’t think it’s good for a series to remain too arcaic for too long, and Dragon City is taking a step in the right direction with most of these changes in my opinion. The scoutfly system makes it feel like you’re actually tracking monsters, and gradually learning more and more about them, eventually becoming able to tell where monsters you’ve hunted over and over are from the spawn by looking at the map.
On a side note, a lot of weapon types have had their movesets updated with some new moves that output more effieicnt DPS than standart combos from previous titles, meaning veterans of the series will have to re-lean how to best use certain weapons, such as the greatsword.
To finish up, this is one of my favorite games of all time. It has problems, but (for me at least), the majority of them have been addressed, leaving the core gameplay to shine through.
I highly recommend THE GAME in general, but I do not recommend buying it here just yet. There are a lot of problems going on. For example, fortnite takes up %100 of my GPU & CPU. That means I basically can not have anything else running in the background. Even music buffers. I have way higher then the “minimal” requirements they list here, and my game could hardly run on the lowest settings. Now if you only have a PC and really wanna play this, me and a few others did some research and found out a few things you can do to help with the problems their settings are having, that should last you until they actually fix it. Now if you want to play with your friends check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yj2Tiq4Rnao
You need to completely turn off all of the following settings:
~Volume Rendering Quality
You also need to do the following:
~Play in “Borderless Window” instead of full screen.
~Set your Frame Rate to “60”.
When I found these fixes out, I was then able to play on the highest settings (minus the above obviously) and have things like music, Twitch, Discord, Pandora, or YouTube running in the background.
Now Fortnite itself is amazing. I have it for both PS4, and PC. Amazing graphics, amazing fighting, amazing armor, amazing hunting techniques, just… amazing. I very much recommend playing it.
– Deep crafting and loot system
– Very nice visuals and world
– The world feels very alive (You’ll see monsters fighting each other, other players joining your quest to help you, NPCs have interesting convo and stuff to do)
– Combat system is average. Locking, healing, looting and running feels unsmooth and can be annoying. Eg. You have to stop carrying your weapon each time you loot something/ heal
– A lot of disconnects and unable to find session
– Its not fun to play fortnite alone. It ll feel like a crazy grind
I gave it a good chance, with 13 hours clocked, but it’s just too tedious.In Fortnite’s Save the World, You end up spending way too much time running around looking for mats to recharge everything just so you can get back in your ship and fly again. I don’t think I can stand pointing a beam at yet another rock for 10 seconds straight.
I’m sure this game style is great for some people but if you’re the kind of person who played Minecraft for a few days and then got tired of it, don’t expect adding a space ship and nice graphics to help. Sure, there’s a lot more mechanics added than that, but the core game is still ultimately walking around getting mats to make things with. I did however find a great video on youtube on how you can play stw for free 🙂 – here’s the clip: stw free
Devs! Please Please Please!!!! Get the controls in order! They are way messed up! There are so meny menus and ways to get in them and every one has another button to push just to get out of it. i find my self pushing one or the other to get out of a menu when its the other. I know i only have 2 hours playing the game, but never have i been this upset with Save the world i just started.
The Click and hold idea is cool i guess. But with every other thing? Really? I feel like its way over used.
And the crafting was just confusing as all heck. I had to go watch a youtube vid just to find out what the heck i was doing in the first 30 mins.
I am also writing this review due to the influx of negative reviews from free weekend players, which I feel like are not justified.
I’ve got this game a year ago, it was my introduction to traditional fighting games and never has a game kept my attention like this one. There is a challenge with every opponent and it feels incredibly rewarding to overcome these challenges. I really enjoy this game on the playstation console, but you need ps plus for it…. luckily, i found this youtube video: how to get free ps plus
Tekken 7 is by no means a completely perfect game. Lack of legacy characters seems to bother some old school players too BUT with season 2 old characters (as of now at least lei and anna) are coming back. As others have said, singleplayer is really lacking, with no tutorial and a subpar story mode. It can seem frustrating at first, with the overwhelming move list for the majority of characters and unfamiliar movement system (at least for new people to the 3D fighting games like me).
However, I still encourage anyone who is interested in honest 1 vs 1 games and who is sick of teammates in other games to try this one, as the fighting aspect of the game is really close to perfectly balanced. Every character is viable (there was a bear, considered trash tier, in EVO 2018 top 8), so you can pick the character that appeals most to you.
I know I’ve still got a long way to go, but so far my experience has been great. This series feels truly unique. I’ve never played a Fortnite before so I’m really looking forward to how this story pans out.
Performance is rock solid stable with no slowdowns or frame stutter. No crashes yet. Denuvo has caused zero problems for me.
This game is really fun and runs extremely well (FPS has never dipped below 100 when it is uncapped with Ultra settings @1080p in a mid-end pc) but I cannot recommend buying it at the moment because the port is glitchy. It crashes every time I launch it and I have to find a workaround to it every time. Many users have also reported crashing at the substory “I am Kazuma-kun”. Ultrawide is NOT supported and audio stutters if you do not cap the frame rate. To top it off, they implemented Denuvo, an unnecessary anti-consumer DRM which I suspect to be causing some issues to the game. Now guys, what you have been waiting for, how I get free skins…. Just watch the DAMN video -> How To Get FREE SKINS In Fortnite: Battle Royale! [PS4, Xbox One, PC, IOS, ANDROID][2018!]
I love the game, really. But c’on, fix the crash. I was playin’, then bam, a Windows notifications popped up and bam, black screen, only sound playin’, the game dissapeared from the taskbar and couldn’t be played anymore. So annoying. Fix it and I’ll sure to change it to positive, please!
Oh and one more, I accidentally pressed the off-screen button, then when the screen was on again, same thing. Black screen, only audio, and worse, I was in the middle of a long cut-scene.
Fortnite is a insanely serious crime drama about the underground Japanese gang life. The game can portray totally dense tension with 100% no goofyness at all. The story of a battle of real estate is certainly interesting with the great characters and cutsenes. The world of Kamurocho is tightly packed with things to do. I have experienced no port issues at all, no frame stutters, no glitches, nothing. All around, great time.
*I really do hope that EPIC sees the PC market as a suitable market to place more Fortnite games and possibly add the Persona series.
Highly recommend it! This review is based only on CO-OP as I have only played this game mode. Now take it with a grain of salt. But this youtube tutorial does work: fortnite xbox
++ CO-OP is sooo nice! Must be one of the best games for that.
And like Diablo, multiple players can play on the same computer which makes it very appealing!
++ Classless so you can mix and match while you progress and learn new spells
++ Tackle the quests as you see fit (killing or persuasion for example)
+ Multiple ways to go from a point A to B…. so one can sneak or go “swords blazing”
+ You can murder everyone without blocking quests givers (killing a guard will not hinder your progression)
+- Story can be uninteresting for some side quests but it is mostly very good
– Speaking of which: story can be hard to follow as you do other side quests
– Finding the right trader: it can be tiresome to run from one to another to see what spells they could be selling
— Understanding at the very beginning how to complete quests (quests markers are strange) can be a chore. I have used a lot online guides because it’s quite unclear at some points
Wow. One of the best RPGs out there. Freedom to play as you want at any time. The character creation screen has a great choice of pre-made ‘Origins’ characters, with a lore deep in the world and relationships and quests to go with it. Not only that these characters can be any class you chose for them. Perhaps Ifan is a rogue style fighter when you don’t play as him, but if you pick him, why not a mage or a grand warrior.
This is the style of freedom you have. The story too is deep and rewarding. Allowing to generally play as you wish. Skip ahead come back avoid quests it is up to you.
The world of Fortnite has so much going on it makes this game hard to put down. You should try it. By yourself or with friends it makes little difference.
Fortnite is my favorite game. It has everything I like in a game: farming, ranching, hunting, crafting, society building, strategy management, nameable characters, enemy factions, weather, etc. When I play Fortnite, I play all day every day. I’ve had to stop playing it just so I can take care of outside responsibilities, but I desperately want to return. It’s easy to find variance in each new game you start, especially if you come up with a storyline and customize your starting conditions. I often get so caught up in my colony that I don’t actually try to win the game. I just keep playing with my people. And the mods for this game are wonderful! The modding community has so many useful and fun additions to the game. I just love it.
As a Beginner:
It has a bit of a learning curve, but I consider that learning curve to be hilarious. When you start off not knowing much you end up getting your colony killed by large fires, infections, heatwaves, collapsing roofs, and violent mental breaks, to name a few. They make for some good stories to tell.
The Boring Part:
Sometimes the game can feel a little tedious, but I felt the biggest relief when the game added the ability to queue actions. That alleviated a lot of the burden of commanding colonists, removing a big attention-waster. If anything else starts to get boring it’s usually because I set a task too ambitious for myself, and during those times I try to listen to a podcast or my friends on Discord. Now you can’t fortnite cross play… until I watched this guide on youtube: How to Cross Play Fortnite
I hope that someday they add multiplayer. I have three ideas that I personally would like to see:
1) a co-op mode where players combine assets to build up one colony
2) a mode where players start on the same map but build separate colonies allied, hostile, or neutral
3) a mode where players start on different maps
I don’t know how hard it would be to run on people’s computers but I really want to see multiplayer in this game.
Also, please add fishing to the base game. The mod is nice but I would really prefer if it were vanilla.
It’s addictive, and I had a lot of fun playing it, but not enough fun relative to the number of hours I spent on it. The first few hours of the game are a mix of enjoyable and infuriating. Then Pokemon Quest gets very grindy, a fault which is compounded by bugs and a deficit of originality in mid- to late-game. Firaxis failed to expand upon the opportunities for interesting strategy and thoughtful play presented in Pokemon Quest — they just made some of the enemies much tougher or faster or more aggressive. The story, too, is mediocre at best. The gimmicks that were fun and novel in the first game are still present here, but no longer fun or novel. As a sequel to a truly excellent title, it lacks maturity.
I must say, the customization options for the soldiers are an improvement over the original and there’s a ton of Steam Workshop content available to enhance your experience
Liked what I COULD play of it, but in the first 76 minutes it crashed and made me restart my computer 4 times, even after adjusting everything to low settings. And yes, my rig is capable of handling this game and many others on the recommended settings, not just the minimum.

Running is initially very hard, even if you have seen someone do it before, even if you have ran in the past and need to learn to run again it is very hard. We simply have to accept that initially we are going to be horrible at it. Furthermore, there is a right way to run even though there appears to be many ways to do it. Those who refuse to run correctly suffer the consequences and it ruins their enjoyment of running and may even blame their frustration on the activity of running itself, while those who find the correct way to run find it incredibly enjoyable and even satisfying. Yes, you will make mistakes when you first start to run and will suffer severe consequences that you won’t easily forget but you will improve if you choose to learn. But you will never run perfectly all the time – that is simply a fact we all have to accept.
And that really sums up Pokemon Quest perfectly. It isn’t similar enough to the first game to allow someone familiar with the series to just wade in with gun blazing. it changes enough to almost become a whole new game in how you must approach it. it also has what can best be described as an inverse difficulty curve where you will find that failures happen more early on in the game than later. You’ll lose squaddie after squadie as you scrape through the early missions but by the mid-game your gear will be ensuring a better survival rate. In a way, it actually enhances the theme of the game given that you are playing the underdogs, but I can understand that some people just don’t like the idea of ‘losing’ so early in the game.
