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.
Elden Ring Is In Final Stages of Development
The highly anticipated title Elden Ring from studio FromSoftware is a highly-discussed title. George RR Martin, a critically acclaimed fantasy writer, only adds to the excitement. Although the game did not make it to the Tokyo Game Show, fans who had been eagerly awaiting its arrival were given an update through another show. Manager Yasuhiro kitao, who is launching the game early next year, made a brief appearance and answered some questions about the game.
Famitsu hosted a short appearance by Kitao on a video show. One of the questions was about Elden Ring’s content. Kitao reaffirmed what type of game it is. It is FromSoftware’s culmination in dark fantasy action, with fans expecting the same level of adventure and difficulty as Dark Souls. He also spoke about the large number of dungeons in the game’s open world.
Elden Ring’s map, fast travel functions and other details were also discussed. This will be a major departure from previous games by the company. Kitao explained that the map would be larger than usual and more unconventional. The player can piece together their locations by finding pieces of the map in the overworld. This allows the player to choose how they want to explore.
Kitao stated that the game is in its final stages and is moving along quietly. He addressed the eagerly awaiting fans with a touch of humility and a message. He began by addressing the gap between Elden Ring’s E3 2019 announcement and the June video. He said, “I thought it would go forgotten until then but there were many people who were waiting for it, so I want to thank them again.”
After his brief appearance, he said that he hopes fans’ expectations are met as the team develops Elden Ring. Kitao was only able to appear on Famitsu for ten minutes due to his busy work at FromSoftware. However, his appearance highlighted many features that fans should be excited about for the upcoming title.
Atelier Sophie 2 Officially Announced By Koei Tecmo with February 2022 Release
Rumours about Atelier Sophie receiving a sequel have been floating around the fanbase for a while, but they gained credibility after the game was ported over to the Switch at beginning of this year. It was also rated for Australian audiences earlier in the month. Many Atelier games have been ported as digital games to the Switch since the original 2015 release of the game, including the Atelier Mysterious Trilogy which includes Atelier Sophie. A sequel has been confirmed.
The Atelier franchise keeps the same beloved art style as the original Atelier Sophie, but with high-quality graphics. The RPG elements, as well as the core mechanics for creating alchemical synthesis and gathering material, are all still the same. The trailer below shows some elements returning with minor changes. Similar to Atelier Ryza 2, players will have a wider world for collecting material, fighting monsters, or launching character combination attacks.
As they travel to Sophie’s home, Plachta and Sophie discover a tree that is identical to the one Plachta had hoped for. The pair are drawn into a strange vortex when they look closer. Sophie wakes up alone and hears about Plachta, an alchemist who lives nearby. Sophie doesn’t recognize Plachta, despite her name being the exact same. This mysterious story unfolds in the new Atelier game as Sophie searches for her friend. She meets new friends along the way and creates new synthesis.
Common turn-based elements will be found alongside an updated system. They will be able to start battles immediately after their initial encounter. This is a first for the series. A pair of three-man battle parties has been added, which allows for multi-linked turn-based battles between two teams. This allows gamers to use a wide range of combat strategies to defeat their enemies.
There are many mechanic-based updates in the new game to look forward to. Fans speculate that Sophie’s success with Atelier Ryza 2 may be responsible for her own sequel, as sequels are very rare in the franchise. Atelier Sophie received one of the highest-performing franchise receptions at the time of its release. It is not surprising that her story will continue, despite the seven years gap.
NIS America has pre-orders available for the Limited Edition set. It includes an Atelier book, background music and a fabric poster. A keychain for Sophie’s whale necklace is included as well as a code to download Sophie’s “My New Look” costume and a collector’s set. Fans should not be disappointed if they get a different edition.
