Check Out Fortnite’s Awesomely Detailed PAX Mini-Golf Course

After building a theme park at Gamescom 2018, Epic Games’ Fortnite has opted for a bit of sport for its PAX West 2018 showing – namely, a tough, detailed mini-golf course.

The Top 10 Movies at the Summer 2018 Domestic Box Office

With Labor Day upon us and summer coming to a close, let’s look back at how Hollywood fared at the North American box office this past season. Disney had four of the Top 10 movies released at the domestic box office this summer, with Avengers: Infinity War leading the pack with $678.7 million.

It’s been a matter of debate, however, whether Infinity War even counts as a summer movie since Disney bumped its release from May 4th to April 27th. In the past, a film released on the last weekend in April was a spring release, but Hollywood continues to blur the lines between actual seasons and “movie” seasons. If we were being strict about the actual definition of “summer” then only movies released between June 21 and September 22, 2018, would count as summer movies. But Hollywood doesn’t do that. And since IGN included Infinity War in its summer movie preview, we’re going to keep it defined as one for the purposes of this box office wrap-up.

One of Dota’s Weirdest Heroes Is Becoming One of Artifacts Craziest Cards

Not all existing Dota 2 heroes are guaranteed to make it into Valve’s next game, Artifact, but this crafty Geomancer, Meepo, is confirmed to get a card counterpart, and IGN has the first details on his cards.

In Artifact, almost every known hero card has either a passive or active ability and a signature spell card. Meepo is unique in that his card has both an active and a passive. His active ability, Poof, allows Meepo to move to an allied Meepos lane and deal 2 damage to his new enemy neighbors. His passive or “continuous effect” ability, United We Fall, requires that if Meepo dies, allied Meepos in other lanes die too.

Like in Dota 2, Meepo’s signature spell allows him to summon another Meepo. You can see the spell card and the art for other Meepo in the slideshow below. Each hero comes with three copies of their signature spell card, so there’s potential to have four Meepos across the board at once.
