    Michael, what would you say is the best version of fortnite? Recently the Android version made waves as to its exclusivity, and modded apks floating on the internet have so far but manged to provide a poor experience. I am interested in trying out the game but am thinking of whether I should get it on PC, switch or mobile for portability reasons.

      Hi Mike.

      You raise a good point.

      The recent Android debacle has been really disappointing and an indicator of how the games industry now works.

      Just to avoid any disappointments I would definitely recommend the PC version as it seems to be stable and you know where you stand. A console version would also be fine.

      Basically I would avoid mobile version for now just while the dust settles.

      Thanks for your comments and enjoy the game.

    Hey MichaelGore, nice post. I got to say that I’ve never played Fortnite but I have heard some mixed opinions regarding it; some good, some bad.
    One thing is for sure is that it is very addictive, I’ve thought about getting the game but I faltered because it didn’t seem that interesting to me.
    But, I’m happy to say that your post is a good guide to refer back to if I ever change my mind again; it does look cool but I’m going to hold off on it for now but I like your post.
    Good job!

      Thanks for your comments RJ.

      Fortnite is one of those games, you either like and play it a lot or you don’t and play it little or not at all.

      I respect the game as a whole and it is amazing what Epic Games has managed to achieved considering it was never meant to be released, but I myself do not play it a lot. I pop in and out and if I’m honest with you I am not very good at it!

      I would recommend giving it another go though when you have a day off just to see  whether you really like it or not. I never liked The Walking Dead (believe it or not) after watching the first episode and I left it for years only to start watching it addictively, lol.

      Thanks for commenting.
