At long last, Fortnite’s BRUTE mechs have been nerfed

At long last, Fortnite’s BRUTE mechs have been nerfed

If there's been a running theme to Fortnite season X so far, it's been "everybody hates the BRUTE mechs." While you'd be hard pressed to find someone who'd complain about rideable mechs in general, the way BRUTEs have been implemented has led players to complain that they're oppressively overpowered. Epic has tried to tweak the BRUTE at various points throughout the season, but complaints of the mechs being OP persisted.

Next week’s free Epic Store games list is a doozy

The free games offered through the Epic Games Store have rotated once again, and this week, the game on offer is Fez. Many gamers are familiar with Fez by this point, as the puzzle platformer quickly became very popular (and was very well received critically) when it was initially released in 2012. While Fez is a solid offering for the Epic Games Store, it's next week that things really get cooking.

Minecraft Earth beta finally hits Android next week

It probably should be much of a surprise that there's a lot of interest about Minecraft Earth. Not only did Pokemon GO prove that there's definitely a market for augmented reality games, but Minecraft Earth is able to leverage the best selling video game of all time. While the closed beta for Minecraft Earth launched a few weeks ago, it's only been available for iOS thus far, leaving Android players out in the cold.

That ugly PlayStation 5 is likely a dev kit, so you can breathe easy

That ugly PlayStation 5 is likely a dev kit, so you can breathe easy

Earlier this week, images from a certain Sony patent started making the rounds. Those images showed off a bulky looking console that some were worried was the PlayStation 5. Why would people be worried that it was the actual PlayStation 5? In short, it's because the console depicted in the image is a bit on the ugly side, with a deep V-shaped indent on the top and vents all over the place.

More Xbox exclusives on other consoles? Don’t get your hopes up

More Xbox exclusives on other consoles? Don’t get your hopes up

Earlier this week, Nintendo announced that Ori and the Blind Forest is coming to the Switch later this year. That was a particularly surprising announcement because up until it happened, Ori and the Blind Forest was an Xbox One console exclusive. If you thought that maybe this meant Microsoft would consider bringing other exclusives to platforms like the Switch and the PlayStation 4, you might want to pump the breaks, because Microsoft says that isn't happening.

There's no question that Sony has been on point with its lineup of exclusive games this generation. From Spider-Man and Uncharted 4 to God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn, the PlayStation 4 is home to some excellent games that you can't play anywhere else.
