Fortnite Week 5 Challenges: Free Challenges

Search 7 Chests in Junk Junction: I would suggest that you wait to do this challenge until a little bit later in the week because usually, Junk is not crowded so if you wait until next weeks challenges come out, you will be able to get 7 chests in Junk a lot easier.

Use 3 Rift Portals: This challenge, I would suggest going to Paradise Palms to do because that is where lots of Rifts spawn, you can even skydive into one before even dropping down at the start of the game!

Eliminate 3 Opponents in 1 Game:   For this challenge, I would choose the place you feel most comfortable dropping that usually has a couple of people that go there. Then, just try and get kills early in the game before anyone else is looted up.

Fortnite Week 5 Challenges: Battle Pass Challenges

Deal 300 Damage to Opponents with Clingers, Stink Bombs, or Grenades: For this challenge, just carry one of these explosive items with you all the time, and if you see people healing in the open or in bases, just throw all of your explosives and you should be able to do plenty of damage.

Hit 5 Golf Balls from Tee to Green: All 9 golf holes are in Lazy Links. If you go into a 50v50 game and your team has a lot of fo people that go to Lazy, you should be able to do this challenge. Just make sure you go to different holes for each one and that you have to golf ball toy in your main locker items before you go into the game.

Follow the Treasure Map Found in Snobby Shores: This challenge is pretty easy all you have to do is land on top of a certain house in Haunted Hills. This is what the house looks like:

Fortnite Week 5 challengesOnce you land on top of the house, there will be a little star and if you search it, you will complete the challenge.

Eliminate 3 Opponents in Shifty Shafts: If you want to drop into Shifty right from the start, it will be very chaotic but you might be able to pick up a couple of kills. You can also land somewhere close and then go into Shifty and try to find people a little bit later in the game. The choice is up to you.

I hope you enjoyed this guide for this week’s challenges and stay tuned for more posts about Fortnite.

 

 

Fortnite Battle Royale Landing Spots Part 1: Some of the Original Spots

Fortnite Battle Royale Landing Spots

Welcome back to another post, today we are starting a new series about all of the Fortnite Battle Royale landing spots. For the first few posts in this series, there will be a theme to the spots in the post. Today’s theme is some of the original spots that were on the first map. The spots that were once on the map but were taken out of the game will not be in this series, but there may be a separate post with all of the removed locations. To stay updated on future posts, follow my Twitter here, like my Facebook page here, and join my Discord here.

 

Fortnite Battle Royale Landing Spots
Fortnite Landing Spots

Fatal Fields

Fatal Fields

Fatal Fields is located in the southern part of the Fortnite map. It is a farm with barns, a house, silos, and stables, Fatal is a medium sized location with a good amount of chest spawns and floor loot. The loot is spread out so you can have a bit of time to find some weapons before you have to start fighting people. There is a forest on the edge of Fatal and also a spot to farm brick. In my opinion, Fatal is a very good place to land because you can get good loot, lots of mats, and there aren’t a ton of people that you have to fight.

Flush Factory

Flush Factory

Flush Factory is in the south part of the Fortnite map. This landing spot has warehouses that make toilets. Flush isn’t great for farming materials because you don’t get a lot of metal from hitting walls. But there is a decent amount of loot. The two main issues with Flush are that it is kind of hard to loot and you almost never will get the circle, so you have to loot pretty efficiently.

If you want to go to a spot with little action where you will not have to worry about fighting and just loot up and get ready for endgame, Flush is a good spot for you. Also, heading northeast out of Flush will take you towards the unnamed factory. If you are ready to start fighting, people usually land here, and if they don’t you can get more loot. Also, there are lots of wood stacks in the unnamed factory, which is the best thing to farm. If you don’t have to run too far to the circle, I would suggest this route.

Greasy Grove

Greasy Grove

Greasy Grove is located in the southwest part of the map. It is a neighboorhood with a restaurant, store, and gas station. It has a lot of loot and the amount of action varies based on the bus’s path, but it usually will give you some action. Landing at a house with no one else at it will help you greatly because you will be able to loot your entire building. Then, I would suggest looking out at the streets for a little bit to scout out where the other enemies are. But don’t wait too long because you could miss out on getting more loot. If you are confident in your fighting ability but don’t want too much action, Greasy is a good spot for you.

Pleasant Park

Pleasant Park

Pleasant Park is located towards the northwest corner of the map. It used to be one of the most visited places before some of the other huge places were added. It still has some people every game, but it is nowhere as busy as it used to be. Pleasant is a neighboorhood with houses and also a soccer field, gazebo, gas station, and a vending machine spawn. Pleasant is another place that will have good loot. It can be really good if you are confident to push people but don’t want a place that is too chaotic.

Wailing Woods

Greasy Grove

Wailing Woods is located in the northeast side of the map. It is a forest with lots of trees and bushes. It definitely doesn’t have great loot.  But it is easy to get to max wood here if building is the most crucial part of your game. There are also mushrooms to give you shield, and there are always enough to get you full shield. A good route to take out of here would be to go to the boxes/shipment containers area. Then continue through the mini forest to Retail Row.

I hope you enjoyed this first post in the series talking about different locations in Fortnite Battle Royale. If you did please share this post! Also, look forward to more posts in this series coming soon.

 

 

 

 

 

MLB The Show 18 Wishlist

MLB The Show 18 will be the next installment in the MLB The Show series. It will be released on March 27, 2018, for the PS4. Today we are going to be looking at some of the things I want to see in the next MLB game. Make sure to like my facebook here and follow my Twitter here. Thank you.

Stadium Builder

In some games, the littlest things can be what makes them good. This is often the case for sports games. In NBA2k, you can create a stadium with community uploads on the court, change the seats, and put text on your court. This would be a great thing for MLB to add to Diamond Dynasty, where you can customize both the stadium’s seats and sights, and the field. They could also add a community upload system so you can put images on your field and jerseys.

FIxed Gameplay

One of the reasons MLB The Show gets stale to play and boring within little time playing is because of the glitches and scripting in gameplay. Whether its a dropped fly ball, a missed grounder, or the catcher missing the ball, there are plenty of ways that you can blow a game without doing anything wrong. Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) needs to rethink some of their animations and mechanics, even though they did a lot of rethinking to these things last year. The game will be so much more enjoyable if the animations are fair and smooth.

More Pack Choice In the Store

MLB The Show 17 has not offered many different packs that you can buy all the time. While they have some packs that are released and available for a limited time, they only have one pack that is permanently in the store, which is the standard pack and is not very good, usually giving you nothing better than a silver (80-84) player. If there were more expensive packs always around in the store that gave better items, I would consider opening more packs. Another idea would be guaranteed packs, like packs that guarantee a gold player, or special series like a flashback. Even if these packs cost more stubs, they would make opening packs more worth it.

Pack Rewards

Something to go with the idea of more packs is a system that would reward you based on the number of packs you open. Whether you get rewarded by reaching a certain number of opened packs, or monthly rewards with different tiers, this would be a great thing to add that would once again make opening packs more worth the while.

3 Inning Ranked Seasons

And finally, shorter Ranked Seasons games. Ranked Seasons was the new mode in MLB The Show 17 where you played 9 inning games and your rating went up or down based on if you won or lost, and got rewards based on your rating at the end of each season. But the 9 inning games drag sometimes, so 3 inning games would make the games more interesting and make every play crucial.

Thank you for reading this article and if you enjoyed, stay tuned for more news about MLB The Show, other video games, and sports news.

FIFA 18 Icon Ratings: Part 2 of 3

Today is the second part of the FIFA 18 Icon Ratings. Icons are cards of former players that were good enough to get these cards. For Part 1 of my coverage, please click here. Each player gets three cards, and the best one is only available at limited times. Here are some more of the cards. Please follow my twitter and like my facebook page.

Pelé

Perhaps the most famous player of all time, Pelé is an Icon. He is the all time leading scorer for Brazil, and he won three World Cups playing for Brazil. He played for both Santos and New York Cosmos, helping the game of soccer grow in the United States.  Pelé scored a total of 1283 goals, including goals in unofficial tournaments and friendlies. His card overalls are 91 CF, 95 CF, and 98 CAM, and the best stat for the 91 is 94 pace. The best stats for the 95 overall card is 96 pace, and the best stat for the 98 overall is 96 dribbling and shooting.

Ruud Guillet

Guillet was one of the best-balanced players of all time. He played for the Netherlands, and his club teams were HFC Haarlem, Feyenoord, PSV, Milan, Sampdoria, and Chelsea. He also managed for Chelsea, Newcastle United, Feyenoord, Los Angeles Galaxy, and Terek Grozny. He scored 17 goals in 66 international appearances. His cards are 90 overall CM with the best stat being 88 pace, shooting, and passing, 93 overall CF with the best stat being 91 shooting and passing, and an 86 overall CM card with 86 passing.

Roberto Carlos

Another Brazilian, Roberto Carlos is likely best known for his famous goal from 35 meters away from the goal against France in the 1997 Tournoi de France. Carlos also scored many more goals in his career, despite being a left back. He scored mostly from free kicks. Carlos’s cards are a 86 overall LB with 92 pace, a 91 overall LB with 92 pace, and an 88 overall LB with 90 pace.

Jay-Jay Okocha

With his speed, technique, dribbling, and power, Okocha was one of the greatest players to ever play for Nigeria. Okocha started his career with Frankfurt, then he went to many clubs including Fenerbahce, Paris-Saint-Germain, Bolton Wanderers, and Hull City. He scored 85 club goals and 14 international goals. His first card is an 85 overall RM with 92 dribbling, his second an 90 overall CAM with 94 dribbling, and his last being an 87 overall RM card with 91 dribbling.

Patrick Vieira

Now the manager of NYCFC, Vieira was once a very popular player in the Premier League. He played for Cannes, Milan, Arsenal, Juventus, Inter Milan, and Manchester City. Vieira was known for his physicality and athleticism. His first card is an 88 overall with 89 physical, his second card is a 91 overall with 91 physical, and his last card is an 86 overall with 89 physical.

Thank you for reading this article about FIFA Icons and stay tuned for part three of this series.

MLB The Show 17: Road to the Show Mode Review

MLB The Show 17 is a video game available on PlayStation 4. (Because Sony is the publisher of this game, it is not available on any other company’s gaming console.) My favorite game mode is Road to the Show. Today we are going to be reviewing the Road to the Show mode. Please follow my twitter and like my facebook page.

In Road to the Show (RTTS), you create your own professional baseball player, play in the Topps Amateur Showcase where you get scouted and determine your draft potential, and then get drafted to a major league team.You then play in their farm system and the better you perform, the faster you get called up to the majors. You get training points every game based on how you hit, ran, and fielded. You can then spend those training points to upgrade your stats.

This year, there was a new feature added to RTTS. There are cutscenes where your manager, hitting coach, and agent can talk to you, and you get different responses that you can choose based on what you want your character’s personality to be. You can also buy equipment, which will give your player better stats. You can buy bats, gloves, cleats, shin guards, compression sleeves, and even rituals that all make your player perform better!

The character that I created is a left fielder for the Toronto Blue Jays. I was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays and then traded to the Blue Jays. I am in 2018, which is my third season.  (You can continue using characters from previous versions of MLB The Show game on the next year’s version.) I am using the character that I created on MLB The Show 16  on MLB The Show 17. Since my character is in his 3rd season, I will have to play 3 more seasons before I become a free agent.

My favorite part of RTTS mode is the fact that you get to play in the minors and work yourself up to the majors, just like real players. I also love playing at all the different stadiums and doing bat flips when I hit a long home run.

Road to the Show is my favorite mode in MLB The Show and is the most creative mode in the game.

More New FIFA 18 Details

Yesterday there was a big live stream for FIFA 18, with news about new Ultimate Team features and gameplay with Real Madrid players, hosted by the FIFA YouTubers Castro and SpencerFC. Here are some of the details about the new game, coming out September 29.

New Walkout Animation and Signature Walkouts

Last year, EA Sports introduced walkouts to FIFA 17, where if you got a player that included a walkout, there would be a pause before the pack opened and the player you got would walk out on to the screen and their nation’s flag would show. You can see an example here. Now in FIFA 18, there will not be a pause before the pack opens, but the player will run out and circle around two billboards with the player’s nation, club, and overall rating. If the player you get has a signature celebration like Ronaldo or Griezmann, they will run out and do their signature celebration. You can see that here.

Icon Ratings and Stories

Replacing Legends on Ultimate Team this year are Icons which will be available on both PS4 and Xbox One. Instead of each player having 1 card based on their entire career, they will have 3 cards. One will be from their early years, one from their late years, and one from their best year. I will make a separate post on all of the player’s ratings for all three cards later today or tomorrow.

New Squad Building Challenge Feature

Last year SBC’s were introduced, where you would trade in players with certain abilities to earn packs or a better player. New to SBC’s this year will be Brick Slots, where one spot in an SBC will have to meet a certain requirement. You can see an example here. As you can see in the example, the slots in black have to be players from certain nations, leagues, and/or clubs. So the Brick Slot CB spot has to be a player from the MLS and Spain. These will make SBC’s harder and you will have to be more creative. You can also now complete SBC’s on the FUT Web App, which you can download to a mobile device, or you can use the website.

Objectives

There are now Objectives, where you will have a certain amount of time to complete gameplay objectives and earn rewards. There are Starter Objectives, Daily Objectives, and Weekly Objectives. My guess is that the Starter Objectives will last forever, but obviously, the other ones will be time-limited.

Squad Battles

Squad Battles is a new single-player mode in Ultimate Team. You play against other peoples Ultimate Teams, but you are playing the computer. You earn points by winning and the better the opposing team is and the difficulty you play on decide how many points you get. There are different ranks, and the higher rank you get the better rewards you get. The Squad Battles will be weekly I’m guessing. You can see a layout here.

Champions Channel

The last feature is Champions Channel, which is where you can watch Featured Matches and see how some of the best FIFA competitors play. EA Sports chooses certain matches that you can watch on Champions Channel, and you are in full control of what parts you watch. This can help you see how the pro’s play FIFA.

I hope you enjoyed this post about new features in FIFA 18 and be sure to watch for my post about Icons ratings. You can like my Facebook page here, and make sure you follow my Twitter for updates on new posts.

 

 

MLB The Show 17: Diamond Dynasty New Features

MLB The Show 17 is a game only available on the PS4 and PS4 Pro. It was released on March 28, 2017. The game has the modes Play Now, Road to the Show, Home Run Derby, Franchise, Weekly Challenges, Retro Mode, and of course, Diamond Dynasty. Today we will specifically be reviewing Diamond Dynasty.

Diamond Dynasty is a mode in MLB The Show where you build a team with current MLB players, flashback cards, and legends. You can earn stubs by playing any game mode

New Features

Diamond Dynasty has new ways to play and earn rewards. In the new Ranked Seasons Competition, you climb the leaderboards by earning rating points when you win. Once you get a certain amount of rating points, you move up to a higher rank. The higher rank, the better rewards you get. You get rewards after completing a season, which ends after a month of being live. So you have a month to get as high up in the ranks as you can! The current Ranked Seasons is called Ranked Seasons Stripes, which ends on August 14. My goal is to get to the Pennant Race rank or Wild Card rank which is 4 and 5 ranked out of 8. If you finish in the Pennant Race rank, you get 1 Gold Series Live Player, so 85 to 89 rated, and a Silver Live Series Card (80-84 rated). If you finish in the Wild Card rank, you get 88 overall Breakout Legend Shawn Green and the Gold and Silver Players.

There are also the Events, which are time-limited, where you play as many games as you can and try to build up the biggest winning streak and win as many cumulative games in the time limit. The last event was All-Star Summer Showdown II, and it ended yesterday. There has not been an announcement on any new events yet.

FIFA 18: What We Know So Far

FIFA 18 will be the next installment in the EA Sports FIFA series, with the game coming out on September 29. Here’s what we know so far about the new game.

The Game will be available on the Nintendo Switch

FIFA 18 will be available on the Nintendo Switch, but instead, it will be called EA Sports FIFA. The game will feature Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Switch Kick Off and Local Seasons as the modes. You cannot yet pre-order the game for the Switch, but it will probably be the same price as it is for the game on consoles and PC.

The New “Legends” Will Be Available On PS4

EA Sports has gotten rid of Legends, which were cards in Ultimate Team that were of former players who were some of the greatest of all time. These cards were only available on Xbox. Now, EA Sports has made Icons, which are just like Legends except they are now also available on PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch as well as Xbox One. The announced Icons so far are Ronaldo Nazario, Diego Maradona, Thierry Henry,  Lev Yashin, and Pele. I will make a post about all of the Icons careers in Soccer when all of the Icons are announced.

The Journey Will Return

The Journey was a new feature in FIFA 17 where you played as Alex Hunter, a fictional soccer youngster. You got to choose which team in the Premier League you wanted to play for and then play an entire season on that team. The Journey is coming to FIFA 18 too. It will be called The Journey: Hunter Returns.  Clips in the trailer have indicated he might transfer to another club in the next season, but we will have to wait and see when the game comes out.

The Price and Pre-Order Bonuses

The price for FIFA 18 is $60 for the standard edition pre-order, and you get $15 worth of Jumbo Premium Gold Ultimate Team Packs, a Cristiano Ronaldo Loan for 5 Ultimate Team games, and 8 special Ultimate Team kits. If you pre-order the Ronaldo Edition for $80, you get $60 worth of Jumbo Premium Gold Packs, a Cristiano Ronaldo 5 game loan, 8 special kits and 3 days early access to the game. and if you pre-order the Icon edition for $100, you get everything you get in the Ronaldo Edition, except you get $120 worth of Jumbo Premium Gold Packs and a 5 game Ronaldo Nazario loans and a TOTW 3 game loan player for 20 weeks.

I am very excited for FIFA 18 and I will be doing many posts about it throughout the summer when more details about the game are released.
