    Recently, Fortnite is seriously the craze going around. It has gotten so popular. I heard that you can also play it on the playstation, gamecube, and the iphone. You know what stinks? I can’t play it on an android phone.

    Anyway, sad story short. I can still watch my friends play. It seems awesome enough. It is very exciting to hear that this game will be having championships battle like how starcraft did back in the old days.

    From now on the new saying would be, “want to get rich? Play some fortnite”. What do you think?

      Yes, Android still has problems with the new mobile gaming trend and the only phone else of those custom gamng phones which can run the games so smoothly is probably the iPhone X. Problems with Android will be solved eventually, but the only thing it needs is some time…

      I think there will always be new chances to make money on stuff. Be it Fortnite, be it another game, the only constant is the change and there will always be something to make money on.
