    I don't think you can transfer vbucks, but if gifting is still available when you buy stuff in the item shop, I guess you could use that?

    Fortnite | Battle Royale - Season 9 - Future Islands

    If anyone buys vbucks for Fortnite, I've found a really good way to get 'em cheaper than usual. When the Deep Freeze bundle was available, you could buy it from the in-game store for some exorbitant price (I think it was £24.99?). You got a skin and 1,000 vbucks with that. But you could also buy codes from retailers to redeem on each platform's digital store, which when redeemed grant you the bundle. And they were available for less than RRP after a while. Now, the Deep Freeze bundle left the Epic in-game store aaaages ago, but the platform-specific retail codes are still on the shelves. Now when you buy something from Epic's in-game store, once you've bought it once that's it, it doesn't show up anymore as you already have it. But there's nothing to stop you buying lots of codes. It seems as though rather than come up with some convoluted way of stopping people from redeeming perfectly valid codes if they already own the pack, Epic decided that if you redeemed a code on a platform-specific digital store for something you already owned in game, the simplest way to handle that was to give you an amount of vbucks deemed equivalent in value to the items in the pack. In the case of the Deep Freeze bundle, that was set at 3,000 vbucks. So, if you already own the Deep Freeze bundle, redeeming further codes for it nets you 3,000 vbucks a time. This is without exception cheaper than buying vbucks from Epic's in game store, and you can do it any number of times (it even states on the back of the box that this works). I've personally tested it on my son's account with two Xbox codes, and cross-platform myself (first code Switch, second Xbox). CD Keys sell the codes cheapest if you're looking for a retailer (currently £16.99, though they have been as low as £13.99), but I've been buying them on eBay for closer to £10. £10 for 3,000 vbucks is a lot more palatable than £20 for 2,800 (though I generally only use free Microsoft Rewards credit to buy them anyway). Bear in mind if you use cross-platform codes, the vbucks are tied to that platform; I bought my first Deep Freeze code in order to get the battle pass so it didn't really matter, there are 50 of the 1,000 vbucks left that only show up on the Switch. (I use Xbox as my primary platform due to the Microsoft Rewards thing.)

    The Wick mode is kinda fun, haven't got on a good enough squad to win yet though! Would like to add that black umbrella to my collection for sure!

    Microsoft Rewards

    Microsoft gift cards just went on offer again, time to stock up on credit! The points cost has crept up again, 5,050 now instead of 5,000. Not that that's a big rise.

    Someone made a good point on Reddit: the drum gun being less common is not a good thing, it just means you're less likely to find one to level the playing field with the guy who did find one and wrecked half the server with it. I don't really mind it to be honest, if I find one I grab it, if someone does me in with one well to be honest I'm pretty bad so it could just as easily have been a regular submachine gun and I'd be just as toast

    Sinclair QL

    I got given a QL by a neighbour when I was a teenager, had some fun messing about with it for a while but as has been said its actual use was minimal.

    I really like Save the World, but it tends to require quite an investment of time so I rarely play it, easier just to have a quick blast on Battle Royale. Also some of the missions do require cooperation, so it's frustrating when you don't get a good group or they all drop out and you fail the objective having sunk forty minutes into it.
  12. Watched this on Amazon Prime the other night, I thought it was great!
  13. DS Lemmings is worth owning a DS for.
  14. The SteelSeries Nimbus is pretty good.
