How to Claim Your Fortnite Refund Before It’s Too Late

Who laughs last undoubtedly laughs longest. If Fortnite tricked you or your little one into making unauthorized in-game purchases and consequently locked your account for disputing the same, it’s payback time. Ironically, Epic Games, the maker of Fortnite, lost in a legal Battle Royale after the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) compelled the game maker into a $520 million settlement in refunds and penalties. Over 37 million Fortnite players are eligible for a slice of the $245 million refund money.

Yes You Can Become the OG Goat in a Minute

If you are wondering just what being the “OG” is or being called a “goat” means these days, and especially on social media or in gaming, you’re not alone. The same goes for if you are wondering why when someone says something’s been a ‘minute’ they seem to mean anything but a short period of time. In fact, it used to be that if someone said that “Joe is a goat” it was not necessarily flattering, let alone a compliment. Now, if someone says that “Joe is the goat”, it’s a huge compliment. In fact it’s as much of a compliment as being called a gangster. Confused? You won’t be, read on.

How to Resign, Delete, or Otherwise End a Game Early in ‘Words with Friends’

Perhaps one of the most frustrating thing about the Zynga game ‘Words with Friends’ is trying to figure out how to resign from (or quit or remove or delete or otherwise end a game – even if you are willing to forfeit the game – of Words with Friends) when it is not your turn. One reason you might want to do this is because the friend with whom you are playing has become unresponsive, particularly if you are maxed out on the number of games you are playing, and so can’t start any new games until some of the other games go away. In such a case, it can be maddeningly frustrating trying to end a game of Words with Friends, when it is not your turn, and your friend has gone missing or nonresponsive for days on end, and so isn’t taking their turns so that you can play the game through to its natural conclusion.
