Game Preview – Clouds over a Fortnite

 

Ok people, now you know me, I’ll do almost anything to push the gaming agenda – at the same time I have my standards. The Video Game Awards (on Spike TV – and in no f*n way is affiliated with the Video Game Armada) have no such standards; every year it’s the same boring, nonsensical, placating, totality out of left field show its always been. True Backlash said it best: “It’s more like video game dinner theater than an award show.”  But my duties as the one true Omnigamer demanded I watch it, whether I liked it or not (and I didn’t). It would have been a complete waste of time if not for Cliff Bleszinski, from Epic Games, announcing a new colorful title about surviving some sort of zombie based doom using the environment. It’s called Fortnite.  And other than the fact it will be devoid of hulking commando types (a la Gears of War), there’s really isn’t any information on it. But worry not, the Armada is on it, once we find out something we’ll let you all know. Til then, stay tuned…

 

 

 

 

 

In other news.

 

The Xbox 360 had another system update, no biggie right? Well the format now looks like the Window Phone 7 if that matters to you; but the big thing is that now Xbox live gold players can store their game saves on ‘the cloud’ storage up to 512mb. Now ‘the cloud’ storage is a convenient way of taking game saves to other Xbox 360 consoles you can sign on to without the need of taking memory sticks and hard drives everywhere you go. Neat, but 512mb is not a lot of space all things considered and the whole cloud storage thing may not translate well to the next system rotation (we’ll due for one soon), so use this in good judgement.
