ENTERPRISING scammers have been targeting Android users on YouTube and other social media platforms as they look to profit off the hype surrounding Fortnite on Android. Epic Games has been promising that Fortnite would be coming to Android phones this summer for several months, but the void left by the lack of concrete detail on offer has been filled by hackers, scammers and all manner of other online ne'er-do-wells. This has only increased in recent days, according to GameRant. This comes after Epic Games has also confirmed the game WON'T be on Google's App Store, with Epic CEO Tim Sweeney blaming the "30 per cent store tax", a reference to the cut of all app sales Google takes.

These scammers are now … [Read more...] about Fortnite Android download scams rise as mobile release nears

In the open air of San Diego’s marina docks, DC Comics’ star writer Tom King asked a key question about his new book, Heroes in Crisis. The mood was meditative — DC supplied reporters at its press event with white terrycloth bathrobes and cushions for seats, meant to echo the calm of “Sanctuary,” the mental health retreat setting of King’s series — yet the title alludes to some of the most tempestuous events in the history of the DC Universe. King read the room. “Why is it a crisis?” “There are no worlds blowing up, there are no worlds merging, there are no little Lex Luthors trying to escape from things,” he continued. “But to me what “Crisis” is [...] is an event that was going to show superheroes in a different way, and change them forever. This was an event that was going to last, and this was an event that was going to change how the audience saw the superheroes and how the superheroes see … [Read more...] about Heroes in Crisis will set a mass shooting inside the DCU’s safest place
It's Friday, January 19th, and the Florida Mayhem are about to take on the Shanghai Dragons. The Mayhem come galloping out in Gangnam Style fashion, big smiles on their faces. Once they've all reached the stage, they do a synchronized lasso move from the iconic dance before taking their seats.
