Borderlands and Zombie Base Defense game fans should take a look at Fortnite. It's super fun!

We are a little late to the party playing Fortnite.  For whatever reason, when Fortnite came out, I didn’t play it. I was probably playing something else.  Recently, Fortnite went on sale again, this time we all made the purchase.  Oh man, do I regret not playing this game sooner.  First of all, I did play the Battle Royal for a couple of weeks and have some first place finishes under my belt.  However, I never made it over to the PvE.  We in there now.  And I think it’s incredible. 

This is the lootiest game I have ever played.  Like Borderlands on steroids.  But the combat is more like a game that was out a few years ago called, Sanctum made by Coffee Stain Studios.  Check it out if you can’t get enough of FPS tower defense.

Alright, so I want to talk about the game a little bit, especially the detail of the design of the game.  I have to admit, I don’t know what I was thinking when I saw that Epic Games was making an FPS Zombie Base Defense Shooter game and I wasn’t all over it.  I wasn’t really a fan of Gears of War or Unreal, but Epic Games has won me over with Fortnite.  I just can’t believe I didn’t take a closer look at this game.  The building is somewhat similar to the building in Fallout 4 and I do love the building in that game.  I definitely spent more time in Fallout 4 building bases than anything else.
So far, Sugar and I have just barely made it out of the first area of the game.  There seem to be 4 areas overall.  Right now, even though it is the middle of January, you can still go to the Christmas area and complete missions. It is a whole other complete large zone.  I honestly just want to ramble my thoughts on this game for paragraphs, but I’ve got some videos from our last live stream I’d like to share.

This is the second of two waves we defend in the video below.  You will get to see how far along SugarNinja has come as a gamer.  She’s only been playing games for a few years now and I think Fortnite is only her third game that’s she’s really gotten into. I can say for sure that she knows wtf is going on. 

She just melts those bluebois!

Here we battle the game's version of, well, you’ll just have to watch the video to see.

And before I wrap up today’s update on our adventures in Fortnite.  Here’s a quick video of myself testing out some trap ideas I have been dreaming up.

HMU on the PS4 if you are down to play some Fortnite with Team Gouki.  We have SugarNinja and BatRastered rollin’.  Sorry FnJimmy fans, he is a nubfarm and does not have this game yet.  Although, I’m certain he would love it.  He’s played through Borderlands almost as much as BatRastered.  Don’t be a Jimmy!
