I wonder how long this fad will last before it dies out like Pokemon go. Think it'll make it an entire calendar year?

Seeing as how shooters tend to stick around for long (and infect every possible genre - see Fallout), I wouldn't be too optimistic. I reckon it will last for a good couple of years, at least.

Yes but the majority of players are on iOS and iOS players have the attention span of nats.



Crossplay with Xbox, PC, Mac and Mobile

How long did the Hero Shooter genre lasted in the spotlight until it was replaced by Battle Royales?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I've played it and so far it looks more like the mobile version of the game rather than the console one (I've played it on PS4), anyone else?



Currently Playing: SSB: Ultimate Splatoon 2, LoZ: Breath of the Wild, & Fortnite

Very important because if you played it on PS4 and you try to log in with your epic account on PS4 this happens:

Well that is dickish. Fortunately I don't have any account on this yet so I can start with a clean slate.

As far as I'm aware it's still like that between PS4 and Xbox One, I first played on Xbox then a friend wanted me to join him for a few games on PS4 and it didn't let you log in with your epic account on PS4 because it was already associated with another platform, No idea if that is till the case as I just ended up playing without logging into any epic games account.

Edit: Yep just tested it again still the same so I don't see this changing for Switch if it's been like this for X1/PS4 since launch.

I have banned myself playing online games since an... incident that occurred in my youth.
