Meteors Hitting The Ground In Fortnite

Meteors have been hitting the ground in Fortnite today along with a social media blast from Epic portending the upcoming season four.

A few Fortnite players have noticed that meteors have been coming from the sky, but few people are finding landing spots as they appear to impact on the ground and disappear. Some streamers have been nearly hit by the meteors, like streamer RealKratfyy barely missing it in this twitch clip.

Epic has also been adding more to their season 4 teases, revealing what appears to be superhero-related imagery. This is leading people to assume that the meteor in Fortnite: Battle Royale is going to bring superpowers in some form or another, with players claiming to have seen loading screen descriptions referring to double-jump powers.

This Incredible Shao Kahn Statue Is Ready To Konquer Your Shelf

Mortal Kombat big bad Shao Kahn has been a major presence in the series since his debut in Mortal Kombat II. Now, the main antagonist is being immortalized outside of the series through a massive statue of him sitting atop his throne.

This 1:3 statue from PCS Collectibles was sculpted by Jerry Macaluso and stands tall at 35" high. It's also going to be hard to get your hands on, as the statue will be limited to 300 units (200 standard editions, 100 PCS-exclusive units with swappable heads, hands, and LED effects). To make matters worse, the statue will set you back $1,500, so even if you're lucky enough to snatch a preorder, you better have some money to spend.

Preorders on the statue begin April 30 on PopCultureShockToys.com. You can see the statue (including the exclusive version) below.

Weekend Warrior – God Of Infinity War

Weekend Warrior – God Of Infinity War

It's the weekend! It's time to kick up your heels, lay back, and play some video games. You can also probably do other things, but for the life of me I can't figure out what that might be.

Oh! Right! Movies!

If you didn't get a chance to catch Avengers: Infinity War last night when it opened, then hopefully you're either going to see it this weekend or are good at dodging spoilers. If you don't care about spoilers or the movie in general, then at least be kind to people that do. It is kind of crazy that this is the first part of the culmination of ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe when Iron Man came out.

Dress As Dante In The Monster Hunter World Event Quest

Dress As Dante In The Monster Hunter World Event Quest

Capcom has released the latest event quest in Monster Hunter World, titled Code: Red, and nets you the outfit of Devil May Cry protagonist Dante.

The quest, which has you run through a gauntlet of monsters, gets you the Red Orb item which will let you build the various parts of Dante's costume. You have to be hunter rank 14, but joining the quest has you take on an Anjanath, Odogoron, Rathian, and finish with the elder dragon Teostra. 

You might need more items than just Red Orbs for your armor and sword, though, so hopefully you can grab the rare materials you need from the quest itself.

Nintendo Plans To Release More Online Subscription Information In May

Nintendo has revealed that details on their online subscription service needed for online multiplayer next month.

While the service is still set for September, Nintendo has been completely mum on details for the service. The last time any details were given about the service was outgoing CEO Tatsumi Kimishima says the company is aiming for around $20 a year for the cost. It has not yet been said what, if anything, the service will entail beyond just an online multiplayer pass.

The Nintendo online app for mobile phones, which Nintendo has indicated is the cornerstone of their Switch online experience, still only supports Splatoon 2 and has not been updated since 2017 with a vague description of bug fixes.
