    I was thinking of picking this up. Cross platform play not available. Have to decide whether to grab Xbox or PC version.
    Read some reviews: critiques were it was a little cartoonish, but gameplay had something for everyone... though there were grumbles about their free-to-play model, where as you get further along you need to spend some cash.

    Pretty comprehensive review here.

    tldr version: skip it.
    Imagine if you'd spent as many hours practicing with a musical instrument as you have spent playing video games.

    Yeah, it's still pay-for 'beta', and apparently the UI is a damn mess. I was kinda interested but will wait until it's maybe 'done'.

    Fortnite now has a free Battle Royale Mode. Says it starts Sep. 26, but I was able to install it and have played a couple rounds already. Pretty fun! ....and unlike PUBG, it runs great on my potato of a system.

    I really like what they did with the BR mode. It's so fun. Anyone still playing it?

    P0rkfat, Chaly, and NV are playing PvE about every night. Dunno their screen names but they're on TS.

    Not on TS anymore, but if you run into them (or if they are lurking), add me to your friends lists.
