Minecraft Player Creates Cover of ‘Still Alive’ From Portal Using Note Blocks

Minecraft Player Creates Cover of ‘Still Alive’ From Portal Using Note Blocks

Minecraft offers a wide range of creative possibilities, including a complete wiring system, hundreds upon blocks, and even music tools. One Minecraft player took the music elements and created a cover of Still Alive by Portal.

The Note Block is one of the many blocks in Minecraft. It can be tuned to particular pitches and will play a note or percussive sound depending on which block it is below. To play complete songs, some composers make large chains of note block blocks.

A Minecraft player named minoan8128 covered the Portal’s iconic ending song, Still Alive. A song cover is made up of hundreds of note blocks linked together in a huge chain. The minecart tracks carry the player, so that the sounds don’t get out of range. The background features detailed dioramas that resemble Portal’s test rooms. Carefully timed falling blocks add an impressive amount to the build and sell the idea of portals working. Banners are cleverly used to create turrets and even small details such as flickering lights and security cameras.

Minecraft is known for its dedication to projects. Some, such as Half-Life 2, took over a decade. Minoan8128 joked that the Still Alive cover took “approximately 1 pandemic” to make. While the composition is very similar to the original, it retains its own style and visuals help keep the Portal aesthetic in the forefront.

Although the song cover is amazing on its own, the original poster claims that it was entirely created in vanilla survival Minecraft. It would be an incredible achievement if this claim is true. The large, detailed building in which the majority of the cover is displayed is huge. It also showcases many more construction projects. With the lack of flying and material gathering required for survival, such massive constructions would have been very time-consuming.

Even though spinoffs such as the Minecraft movie’s fate remain uncertain, the community keeps the game alive with creative projects. The current developers also keep the game updated with new features regularly. Minecraft has a lot of potential and fans will continue to support it.

Half-Life: Alyx No VR Mod Looks Promising in New Update

Half-Life: Alyx No VR Mod Looks Promising in New Update

Half-Life: Alyx was created to show what VR can do. However, some people find it difficult to use. A team of mod developers has created the game to be more accessible for all players by making it more similar to the classic Half-Life games.
Half-Life: Alyx, a VR title is meant to be used with two track controllers that simulate the hands of players. While they are great in VR, the hands do not work in VR. They also remove the game’s control scheme from its keyboard and mouse.

A group of modders known collectively as SoMNst released a video showing improvements to the “No VR Mod” for Half-Life. This video features 37 minutes of gameplay, and highlights important changes made to make Half-Life classic gameplay available for non-VR. The UI and puzzles have been redesigned to allow for traditional first-person shooter gameplay. Each change seems to have been inspired by Half-Life 2. The UI design is very similar to the original titles. Additionally, the process of picking up physics objects has been reworked to be very similar to previous games.

Half-Life: Alyx was praised for its VR format. Taking it out of its context gives you an interesting perspective on what VR needs to change. It is a great simplification that makes VR feel more meaningful than a flatscreen format. The emphasis on upgrading weapons rather than the various arsenals from previous Half-Life games is a fascinating one. VR is still in its infancy, so Half Life: Alyx’s design allows for players to feel at ease as the format changes.

Half-Life: Alyx is more horror-oriented than the rest of Half-Life. Despite the gameplay shift, the No VR mod makes Half-Life: Alyx accessible without the need for expensive VR equipment. It also serves as an interesting case study on how VR affects game design. It can also be used as a parallel to convert existing games to VR formats as demonstrated by the BioShock: Return to Rapture Mod.

Valve has been known for their modding skills. Major esports titles such as Counter-Strike or Team Fortress started out as mods for Half-Life. Modders can create custom maps and campaigns for Half-Life, Alyx, and they can even integrate haptic suits and complete conversions to make this a completely new experience.

Marvel’s Avengers Player Shares Skin Concepts for Iron Man, Captain America, and More

Marvel’s Avengers Player Shares Skin Concepts for Iron Man, Captain America, and More

The game’s community is very concerned about the cosmetics used by Marvel’s Avengers. Fans are vocal in their requests for alternate outfits for their heroes. This is why the discussion about skins is a constant topic of conversation within the Marvel’s Avengers community.

Fans continue to create new cosmetic designs, regardless of whether they are inspired from comic books or television adaptations. BrockSolid Designs, a fan of the game, has created elaborate concepts that let them share their passion for the iconic characters.

BrockSolid Designs offers custom skin cosmetics concepts that they wish to see in Marvel’s Avengers. Skins have been created for Captain America, Iron Man and Hawkeye as well as Wolverine. BrockSolid Design offers two different Captain America cosmetics. The first is the 1941 Captain America appearance, while the second is the zombie Captain America, as shown in Marvel’s What If …?. Anthology. The 1941 classic look is striking, with bright pops in blue, red, and white. While the zombie look shows a blue discoloration to his skin underneath his MCU gear.

BrockSolid Design’s models for Iron Man include a Model 51 Prime and a Proto-Classic cosmetic. The latter is an alteration to Marvel’s Illustrious skin, which BrockSolid Design designed for Iron Man. Marvel’s What If is another Marvel’s. A skin featuring a zombified Iron Man wearing no helmet is also included. Clint Barton’s Hawkeye is not given an original or unusual outfit. Instead, he gets the Civil War-inspired Civil War skin.

Spider-Man will still be able to visit Marvel’s Avengers in 2019, but it is not clear what his default look will be, nor which cosmetics he may wear. While players may be able predict MCU-inspired skins that look similar to those in Marvel’s Spider-Man comics, it is not clear how the character will look. BrockSolid Designs has however created a classic look for the web-slinger with Marvel’s Spider-Man’s Classic Suit. However, they have added large silver web-shooters to his wrists. You can also get larger mask lenses.

Additionally, Wolverine is not yet announced for Marvel’s Avengers. This makes Wolverine a fan-requested character that could or might not be considered for downloadable content post-launch. BrockSolid Designs’ Wolverine cosmetic design was modeled after the Sideshow character in his iconic yellow and blue outfit.

Metal Gear Solid 5 Quiet Actress Working on New Game Vengeance is Mine

Metal Gear Solid 5 Quiet Actress Working on New Game Vengeance is Mine

Metal Gear Solid is filled with memorable characters that are brought to life by talented individuals. Quiet is from Metal Gear Solid 5 – The Phantom Pain. Now, Stefanie Joosten will be the creative director for a new mech combat video game titled Vengeance Is Mine.
Joosten, who almost played the role of Fragile in Death Stranding’s, recently announced the new game through a Twitter video. She briefly described Vengeance Is Mine as a game that blends genres, themes, and ingeniously innovates on industry standards, as well as being able to describe it as a game that fuses genres and themes in surprising ways.

According to the official blurb Vengeance is mine tells the story about Gabriel Jaeger who is executed by three time travelers traveling to 1664 to find an old piece technology that will give them a terrible power. Charles Jaeger uses technology to activate Deacon, an abandoned military facility buried beneath the streets of New Amsterdam. This is a plot that would be right at home in Metal Gear Solid. The people are then able to rally around Robert Wright, their spiritual leader “beyond time and space.” Gabriel Jaeger survives his execution but prepares to exact his revenge with a prototype HYDRA suit. This is shown during the video.

110 Industries will publish Vengeance is Mine. It will feature a time manipulation mechanic similar to some action games’ bullet-time functions. It will allow players to adjust combos or cheat death, speed up or slow down time, and even readjust their timing. Joosten, a Metal Gear veteran, says that the title is more than a game. This may be because she borrowed some ideas from Hideo Kojima’s famously creative and bizarre book.

At the time of writing, Vengeance is Mine’s announcement has elicited excitement from Joosten’s fans. One Twitter user stated that Joosten’s presence was enough for them to be excited about the game. This may be a reflection of how Hideo Kojima’s followers feel about him. Joosten was greeted with many congratulatory messages. Another fan immediately promised to play the game, and another reported that Vengeance is Mine would be a great learning experience.

New World Players Worry Endgame PvP Is Too Exclusive

New World Players Worry Endgame PvP Is Too Exclusive

Many of the thousands of new players who are entering New World’s Aeternum setting are not sure what awaits them. New World has a wide variety of content, including crafting, questing, and PvP. However, many of the more difficult content in New World requires players to find it themselves as they progress. As New World’s most committed players reach higher levels they are sabotaging the game’s PvP endgame.

New World players see the most thrilling systems when they open their maps. New World’s equivalent of guilds, companies can claim territories and then fight for them in a territory war. Although territories are New World’s most important resource, it is not possible to defend them in the massive 50v50 Wars. This raises the question of New World players not being able to participate in any War, no matter how much they may want to.

New World has 15 territories, but only 11 can be claimed by any one Company. A single Company can claim multiple territories. This means that eleven Companies can have a territory at a time, but it is likely to be less with larger Companies claiming multiple territories or Companies unable to wage war against their New World faction. Each company can only have 50 members participate in the Company’s Wars. This should give you an idea of how exclusive and unique this part of the game.

A New World player must not only join a major Company but be favored by the Company’s leadership in order to take part in the MMO’s most important endgame PvP features. This is because Company leaders have the power to remove players from Wars sign-ups.

Players are concerned that the current system of territory control and the Wars that play a crucial role in it are unfairly exclusive. Only a small percentage of New World server players will be able participate in the system. Moreover, most players will not realize that they’ll be excluded from the system until they reach New World’s endgame.

There is no obvious solution. Many New World players think that each server should have a minimum of 12 smaller territories that smaller companies can also fight for. There are other solutions that could be considered, such as making Wars bigger or being part of the New World’s open-world. Both have their positives and disadvantages. This is a topic that will likely be a bigger issue in the months ahead.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Fans Want To See Gwen Stacy In The Sequel

Marvel’s Spider-Man Fans Want To See Gwen Stacy In The Sequel

Like Peter Parker, Gwen Stacy has been through many iterations using different sources. Marvel’s Spider-Man weaves its own web of lore, character continuities and plots to keep fans interested and awed by what might happen.

Gwen hasn’t yet been accepted into Marvel’s Spider-Man. This is something that fans have acknowledged since the original game was released. Mary Jane Watson, Peter’s conflicted romantic partner, was instead established. Fans have questioned whether the storyline of Miles Morales & Gwen should be continued in Marvel’s Spider-Man.

Walo-888 makes a hot take on the Marvel’s Spider-Man community, stating that they would love to see Gwen as a romantic interest in Miles. Walo-888 also wants Gwen to be only a romantic interest, and not have the possibility of becoming Spider-Gwen. This suggestion has divided fans who love either iteration of Gwen, whether it be the intelligent college student who hates Spider-Man and gets dropped from the George Washington Bridge, or The Mary Janes’ drummer who gets bitten by a genetically-engineered spider.

Marvel’s Spider-Man players claim that Peter and Miles, the two Spider-Men Insomniac Games has already developed, are too much to handle. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was the first time the two of them fought crime together. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 might want to further develop this dynamic duo. Some fans think that Insomniac might want to continue adding Spider-people to their universe and that even one tease might be offered.

Multiple fans came out in support of Marvel’s Spider-Man. Miles Morales’ Hailey Cooper is a street artist who has impaired hearing and communicates with Miles via sign language. Fans love Hailey, despite her small role as a sidecharacter. However, they would like to see their relationship blossom. Although it’s not clear that they are in love, it seems like Insomniac laid the foundation for a future romantic relationship.

According to a Walo-888 post, it seems that Gwen might play a part in the future development of Marvel’s Spider-Man. Or Insomniac might not be ready to give up on a potential character and wait until the right time and place is available to add her to the story. Fans would love to see the character, whether as a mild-mannered, tragically fated lover or as an alternate universe crimefighter.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Player Spots Haunting Teaser In Nuketown

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Player Spots Haunting Teaser In Nuketown

Activision and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s developers introduced their first major crossover Halloween event in October 2020. Between October 20 and November 3, 2020, The Haunting of Verdansk transformed Verdansk into an eerie setting filled with holiday terrors. Call of Duty fans are eager to hear about The Haunting of Verdansk’s return in 2021. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War suggests that this event may be imminent.
One of Activision’s Halloween plans has been discovered by Watchful Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War gamers. One of the Nuketown maps’ garages contains a Halloween bucket containing lollipops and candy. It is an orange bucket that has a jacko-lantern face and a weathered exterior to fit Nuketown’s aesthetic. Although it isn’t interactive, and there are no other Halloween clues nearby, the bucket has sparked speculation.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War gamers believe the Halloween candy bucket is a nod towards Season 6’s scary event. Some believe that Activision is sneaking out information to players about upcoming events by using the bucket. Players are speculating that a Halloween-themed Nuketown map may be released. This is similar to the Christmas-themed map that was released late last year. Activision will reveal the details, but players will have to wait.

This is Activision’s first evidence of Halloween’s return in the Call of Duty universe. However, this information is not the only one Activision has provided about its plans. A seasonal event called The Haunting was announced in a Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War roadmap and Call of Duty; Warzone roadmap. It is expected to start on October 19. This event will offer new modes and rewards that are only available for a limited time, as well as other perks. This is the entire reveal.

There is much speculation about whether Activision will bring back The Haunting of Verdansk’s dark map changes for this years’ seasonal event. Players are hoping for a surprise return to the nighttime setting in the updated Verdansk’84 battle royale map.

Activision will launch Season 6 of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War this week. This update will be available on October 7, and it is likely to grab Call of Duty players’ attention for quite some time. Although a revelation for the Haunting event in 2021 may not be forthcoming for a few weeks, there might be some teasers in Season 6.

God of War Ragnarok Fan Shares Amazing Concept For Odin

God of War Ragnarok Fan Shares Amazing Concept For Odin

God of War Ragnarok has been a hit since its unveiling at the 2021 PlayStation Showcase last October. It is the sequel to 2018’s highly successful soft reboot. Many are looking forward to the sequel as it answers many burning questions.
The myriad theories about the king of Aesir have been fueled in part by 2018’s God of War, which intentionally hints at a vague and foreboding future for him. Although very little information is known about the god except that Kratos and Atreus will undoubtedly be on a collision course, there are many details. Although Odin’s appearance remains a mystery even today, one Reddit user made a great guess and it was quite eye-catching.

Reddit user Buffybumcheeks shared an image they created of the head god. It was styled after the revelations Sony made about new cast members such as God of War’s portrayal of the god Thor. Even the name Richard Schiff, the voice actor for this role, is included in the art.

This Odin take is full of details, but it’s worth taking the time to look at. While the artist is able to accurately replicate some of Sony’s designs, he also includes some of Odin’s most iconic traits. This Odin is dressed in furs and intricate gold accessories, fitting a king from a cold region such as the ancient Norse. His mythology is reflected in the horns at his waist that resemble a Viking helmet and his horn at the waist.

The mythological signatures Odin has made are of particular interest. These will be tools Odin will need to confront the demise of the Norse gods. The first weapon is in his right hand. It can be reasonably assumed that it is Gungnir (the Spear of Destiny) which Odin has used throughout his reign. His second eye is the one Odin sold for knowledge many years ago. The eye appears to have some decay or corruption, which proves that the Aesir paid a steep price.

Odin will likely be the last antagonist of the Norse saga since God of War Ragnarok is the end of the Norse story. This puts a lot of pressure on Odin to perform a convincing performance before Kratos travels elsewhere. It all begins with a design that makes a good first impression. If the final design Sony chooses is even half as good, Odin will be in good hands.

Destiny 2 Glitch Gives Infinite Heavy Ammo But Isn’t Easy

Destiny 2 Glitch Gives Infinite Heavy Ammo But Isn’t Easy

 

From the beginning, Destiny 2’s combat has required players to keep a steady supply of heavy ammunition and still have stronger weapons to deal with difficult enemies. However, some players have discovered a way to avoid the need to keep ammo in check. This allows them to use heavy and special weapons unlimited, including some of Destiny 2’s most exotics.

The culprit is an animation glitch that’s tied to relics. However, this exploit doesn’t work on all relics in Destiny 2. This means that some players might have difficulty activating the glitch during activities like Crucible. However, Titans have the ability to activate the glitch at will and can provide unlimited ammo for their fireteam.

Players should watch the Cheese Forever video to activate the glitch. Players will need to have enough ammo to activate the glitch. They can also pick up one of the relics that allows them to switch to third-person mode. The game will replenish the magazine by picking up the relic and reloading. If done correctly, it can even give you more reserve than the weapon can hold. The glitch will activate in many activities that use relics such as Destiny 2: Last Wish Raid. However, there are occasions when it doesn’t.

Stasis Titans can activate unlimited ammo in areas without a glitch relic. They do this by using a Diamond Lance and any stasis kill for some builds. The Diamond Lance relic can be picked up by other players, so that Titans can act as an ammo reserve for their fireteams or raid parties across multiple encounters. Although there is a limit to how much ammo can still be duplicated depending on the skill of each player and how many stasis kills a Titan can manage per encounter, it can provide substantial more heavy use than what is usually intended.

This glitch can cause certain activities to be broken, such as raids or strikes. This can be fun for players who have already won these encounters several times. The infinite ammo can also impact competitive activities such as Destiny 2’s PvPvE game Gambit. This could make it difficult for players to enjoy this multiplayer content. Players may be tempted to use this glitch less frequently in situations that could attract more attention from Bungie, and force Bungie to fix it sooner than expected.

Talented Skyrim Player Shares Breathtaking Alduin Painting

Talented Skyrim Player Shares Breathtaking Alduin Painting

Skyrim has been explored by gamers for the past 10 years. These explorations have led to the discovery of many dangerous and rare creatures in Skyrim’s open world. The wilderness is home to many strange creatures, such as the three-eyed trolls and the terrifying humanoid-looking Hagravens. There are many vicious creatures in the game but some are more dangerous than others.

Dragons are one of the most dangerous creatures in Skyrim, among the many wild animals. Skyrim residents fear Alduin, also known to be the World-Eater. This dragon is one of the most powerful creatures in existence and was prophesied to bring down the world by the Nords. This monster is the main antagonist in the main quest. Many players have met it. One fan created a piece of art inspired by this famous character.

Reddit user alqin2s_art posted a picture of Alduin, the evil dragon. They created an amazing image of the dragon flying across the night sky using acrylic paint. An aurora was painted in the sky by the artist using many colors, much like the one found in Skyrim. The design also featured a bright moon above a silhouette of the dragon and several pine trees around the edges. The most remarkable aspect of the picture is the way the artist was able to paint one of Skyrim’s most destructive and powerful creatures and create a serene scene. Alqin2s_art also revealed that the entire painting process took approximately 5 hours.

Reddit’s Skyrim community has been embracing this new painting by alqin2s_art. Fans agree that the artist has captured the beast’s look perfectly against the night sky, with nearly 11,000 upvotes. Many appreciated the idea of making the dragon silhouetted against a moon, while others thought that the combination of colors looked like a screenshot from the video game.

Alduin’s fan art is just one of many impressive pieces of fanart created by Skyrim members. Another gamer recently recreated Bleak Falls Barrow using LEGOs. There are so many other creatures and places to explore. It will be fascinating to see what talented artists like alqin2s_art make next.
