Chance the Rapper demands reparations from Fortnite #DailyHotTake

We’re going to need a lot of wood.

We’ve got a small but hearty batch of hot takes this week. From virtual reality to Fortnite, here’s what we had to say.

PlayStation VR gets a price drop

Admittedly, this is old news. But it’s news to use. Sony reduced each of its virtual reality headset packages by $100. That makes the base PSVR model a mere $300 investment which is much more palatable than the $400 Oculus Rift or the $500 HTC Vive.

Sonic Mania Plus scores big

We enjoyed Sonic Mania when it hit digital store shelves last summer. So much so, that it received our Game of the Month. A year later, the game is back with new levels and playable characters.

Pokemon Let’s Go takes us back to Kanto

Fans have waited years for a full-fledged Pokemon game on a Nintendo home console. Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee are remakes of the original and look like higher quality 3DS ports. It’s sufficient, but not dazzling.

Chance the Rapper weighs in on the success of Fortnite

This week we have a guest hot take from award-winning hip hop artist Chance the Rapper. Drake isn’t the only rapper with opinions on Fortnite, although Chance’s are a bit more controversial. He makes a great point, even if he seemed to be (mostly) joking.
