We're now deep into season 8 of Fortnite and it looks pretty cool.

Update! Anthem is OUT, get it now and read more about it on TRS80's dedicated page to Anthem, telling you what Anthem is and the cool stuff in the game.
Are you ready? The game Anthem is coming soon, it's an open world massively multiplayer FPS from Bioware and EA and it's available for XBox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows. Check out the trailer, there's still time to pre-order the game before the 22 February 2019 launch date!
This. Is. Incredible. The latest release of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has added a battle royale mode called Danger Zone (faint whisperings of Kenny Loggins....). If another game company, like Activision with Call of Duty did this, it would be seen as a copycat, a mere clone of the greatness of PUBG and FortNite. But when it's Valve adding more awesomeness to an already awesome game (and making CSGO free to play??) It's more than a copycat, it's a new competitor for the title of Best Battle Royale mode.
The weapons in the Danger Zone mode are the same classic CS:GO weapons, so if you've got good aim in regular play, you'll have good aim here. That's one thing that has always put me off PUBG and Fortnite, the mechanics and aim and spray patterns are different, so the style of play is very different.
I never thought I would see the day, but it's true, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is now free-to-play. Valve is injecting more life into CS:GO as if playing de_dust2 isn't enough for players haha. It's amazing to see this game go free-to-play and now no one has any excuse but to try it out.
Kind of a serious issue to talk about here, video game addiction. it's all fun and games when you binge on a video game for a night or two. But if it becomes a regular thing, as apparently it has for some Fortnite addicts (one player mentioned clocks in 12 hours a day!), then it's time to get some help.
From the article: "For now, Fortnite is the game of choice. On a recent afternoon, the game was the most-viewed on Amazon.com Inc.’s Twitch streaming service, with 250,000 people watching others play."
This is why TRS80 Gaming is into casual games and keeping casual gaming hours. There's a world and life outside of video games, and addiction is no joke.
Bungie has finally caught on to what other games like WoW (World of Warcraft) do and that's Refer-A-Friend. They will give you a reward for inviting a friend to play Destiny 2! Finally. Aside from giving away PC copies of Destiny 2 for Battle.net players (up until 18 November 2018), refer-a-friend should help bring more players into the game.
How to get Fragmented Souls
Here's a good guide on how to get fragmented souls to buy Festival of the Lost masks. The easiest way is to get bounties from Amanda Holliday, usually you get just one it seems but other bounties can have higher fragmented souls rewards like +10. Daily bounties give you +1, Weekly bounties give you +40 fragmented souls. That's enough to buy a Festival of the Lost mask!
How to get all the Festival of the Lost Masks
Forbes has the full list of all Festival of the Lost masks. The first mask you get is Master Rahool. Each mask can be upgraded by defeating nightmares (the bosses at the end of each "branch" in the Haunted Forest quest, usually you defeat 10 to upgrade the mask's perk).
Sony announced that they would releasing PlayStation Classic on December 3rd, 2018. It's been almost 25 years since the original PlayStation was released so they decided to make it smaller and preload 20 games on it.
They haven't announced the whole list of games, but they're saying the following games will be preloaded:
It's going to come with 2 controllers, HDMI cables and a USB cable. The cost is $100 USD and $130 CAD. This is a pretty good price considering you get to play classic games.
If you have a PlayStation 4, you can actually already play PlayStation 2 games on it.
