Fortnite: Battle Royale gets stink bombs

While we wait to see what exactly the Switch version of Fortnite counts down to, it is already clear that we will get a new item in Fortnite: Battle Royale, namely the stink bomb. This bomb explodes on impact and then releases a harmful cloud. If you walk into that as a player, it costs you precious life energy.

At the time of writing, the item is not yet in the game, although it can already be seen via an update screen. As soon as the stink bomb arrives, the Guard will give it a try. Incidentally, the Guard is quite good at using stink bombs, his exes will confirm.

Here’s some concept art for Spider-Man

While we wait for Spinnemans to finally web swing in the PS4 game Spider-Man in September, every little thing about the game is more than welcome. Like the artwork below, which shows five different enemies from the Sinister Six group. These are Scorpion, Shocker, Vulture, Mister Negative (that’s how the Guard is sometimes called every Monday) and Rhino. The sixth member is still unknown, but fans are hoping for the Green Goblin.

Incidentally, it has now been announced that this Spider-Man will become part of the Marvel universe. Not the film universe, but canon in the complete comic series. Cool!

Beta for Beyond Good & Evil 2 arrives in late 2019

Beyond Good & Evil 2 fans will have to be patient for a while, as the game’s beta won’t arrive until the end of next year. Michel Ancel, the creator of the franchise, says this on Instagram.

It is of course great that we (or a select number of players) will get a taste of the game at the end of next year. Hopefully that means we can fully play the game in 2020. But will it then appear on the current generation of consoles or the next? All those questions! What are you doing to us, Ubisoft?

Game based on Kill la Kill announced

Kill la Kill is a very good anime series from a few years ago and Arc System Works, the maker of many fine 2D fighters, and Aplus are now developing a game about it. Much more is unfortunately not yet known. Between 5 and 8 July we will find out more, because then the game will be fully revealed at the Anime Expo 2018. For the time being we only have to do it with the Japanese trailer below.

No, that doesn’t make you any wiser, does it? Maybe the screenshots below will help a bit more.

David Beckham is scanned for PES 2019

The Champions League no longer has PES, but fortunately a fully scanned David Beckham! This is evident from the new video from PES 2019, in which we see how Beckham is captured for the game. What details! Even virtually, Beckham has a head of hair that the Guard can only dream of. The Guard does have fewer wrinkles, though. But Beckham has Posh Spice again. The Guard is only Old Spice. It is clear who the winner is.

PES 2019 will be released on August 30 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

YouPorn is having a hard time thanks to Fortnite

Back to Fortnite for a moment. The game is so popular that 13.57 percent fewer gamers came to YouPorn (hehehe) during the Fortnite Pro-Am tournament last week. A big dip, and all because people would rather watch the tournament than some hard labor of love.

As a result, the Guard has formulated a question that will occupy the minds of the greats of the earth for centuries to come. This philosophical question will be explored by academics at universities next millennium. Okay, here it comes: if you had to choose, never play / watch Fortnite again, or never watch again … what would you choose? Leave your answer in the comments.

Game addiction is now really recognized

The World Health Organization (WHO) now recognizes excessive gaming as an addiction. It is included in the eleventh edition of the ‘International Classification of Diseases’. The institution’s website lists three hallmarks of gaming addiction, namely a lack of control of how much time you spend behind a game system, giving gaming a strong priority over other activities, and wanting to keep gaming, even though this has a negative effect on your life.
