reduce(15:93)

Jumping spiders in the Holy See

From a battle entertainer in the royale court, less than weekly

The answer is two words, and will fit into the sentence, "Video games these days often contain _____ _____."

Hint:

You will have to do (a small amount of) internet searching to find the answer. Also, royale is not a typo. ;)

  • $\begingroup$ @Grace Indeed. I've edited that line to be slightly more telling what it is referring to, in particular. $\endgroup$ – Feryll Jun 27 '18 at 4:58

I think the answer could be:

"Video games these days often contain weekly challenges." And all the clues pertain to Fortnite: Battle Royale which includes weekly challenges.

Reduce(15:93)

This fraction reduces to 5/31, which could read as May 31st - the day in 2018 that Epic Games introduced "Fortnite Week 5 Challenges" to Fortnite:Battle Royale.

Jumping spiders in the Holy See

It has been said that the ingame map is "4x the size of Vatican City" (Vatican City is The Holy See). I'm not a Fortnite player myself, but I have seen that Vatican City, Spiders, and Spiderman all feature in gamer streams, not sure if these are mods or not.

From a battle entertainer in the royale court

A reference to Battle Royale

less than weekly

A "fortnight" is 14 days, which is more than a week, and so occurs less frequently.

  • $\begingroup$ Creative and plausible answer, but it doesn't quite explain all the choices in words I made (hint: Jul "whzcvat fcvqref"?). I'll also say, that if I meant to indicate 5/31, I would've written reduce(15/93) ;) $\endgroup$ – Feryll Jun 27 '18 at 19:31
