  1. Well Wandavision is over. 

    It took me until July last year to get over Marvel Withdrawal Syndrome, but it appears the symptoms of MWS are returning. Fortunately, only 2 weeks until The Falcon and The Winter Soldier

  2. Yesterday 343 did their monthly blog on the development of Halo Infinite.

    And wow has it improved since July. In the showcase last year, people complained about the graphics quality, and rightly so. It literally looked like an early XB1 game. I don't whether the new images they released look "next-gen" or not, but its beautiful all the same.

    But what really strikes me is not so much the graphics quality, but the art style. They've said that this game is intended to be a "spiritual reboot" and feel like Halo:CE.

    This game is looking more like Halo:Combat Evolved than Halo:CE Anniversary did.

    Maybe its just me, idk. They did have to delay this game to the Fall, and there's no official release date, but I bet it'll be November 15, 2021, because that would 20 years to the day after Halo:CE came out. They won't miss out on that marketing opportunity.

      I like it, it still fits that original halo style which is neat

  3. The third MCU Spider-Man movie is titled Spider-Man: No Way Home. And Star Wars: The Bad Batch begins streaming on May 4'th! 

    1. Swift

      Swift

      What, why do we need a bad batch series? They had their ark complete by the end of those episodes. I don't see a point in the mutant ninja turtle clone troopers running around and killing things being made into a series

      wasn't spiderman already in the marvel cinematic universe before the newer movies?

      @Swift Personally I'm excited for the show not because of the characters but because of when it is. It'll be in the immediate aftermath of order 66, an time period that wasn't much explored in canon or legends. So we don't need it, but we didn't need Clone Wars or Rebels either.

      @Cryptic Runner No. There were two other versions, but as of now they're not MCU canon(but this may change because multiverse)

  4. Spoiler for Wandavision Ep.7

     

     

    ...

    Somehow I get the idea that it was Agatha all along. 🤔

  5. You dare speak of Canon to me, mortal? I'm jk. I assume you're referring to the novelization of A New Hope, and yeah you're right, books and subtitles say Artoo I guess because that's how it's pronounced.(I just don't like Artoo because it reminds me of when Ahsoka calls him 'Artooy' in CW S1)
  6. Xbox just announced Xbox Wireless Headset.

    Looks great actually, its wireless, high quality and at $99 relatively low priced compared to some other headphones(ahem Apple).

    But here's the problem: it connects wirelessly in the same way as the controllers do, by syncing it with the console.

    ...why not just have Bluetooth on Xbox? Then you could just sync any Bluetooth headphones you have.

    That was a rhetorical question. The answer is obviously money.

  7. Again? How 'bout that

      ah man! i dont like this minecraft animation community because they wont let me talk about trump!!!

    3. Swift

      Swift

      What? You keep going back to the same point, I already said I'm not in direct support of talking about politics. But if we restrict what content is said here the community dies. I don't see what's wrong with someone posting on their own profile what they want to, there is nothing in the rules against discussing politics. Even the mods were discussing it during election day

    4. Floofy

      Floofy

      I'm not saying restrict everything non mc, I'm just stating how ridiculous and stupid it is to continue talking about politics on a mc 3d animation software site, its not that deep

  8. Just watched the latest episode of Wandavision (no spoilers)

    All I can say is that it should be illegal to end anything in a cliffhanger like that. Its too much.

    1. Draco63

      Draco63

      Plenty of things do awful, devestating cliffhangers all the time. It makes you wonder what happens next, and that keeps you watching when the next episode/season/movie comes out. It's insurance for the people who make it that you won't abandon them and give your money to someone else.

    2. Spontaneous Explosions

      I understand the purpose of it.

      I was exaggerating. I'm just saying this episode ended on a cliffhanger larger than any previous episode.

  9. So in the today's snapshot they increased the world height. But it seems to me they did it in the worst way possible.

    So, what they did was add 64 blocks to the bottom and 64 to the top, so the lowest you can go is y-64 and the highest y320, for a total of 384.

    It would've been better just to add 128 blocks on top I think, because now they've got to figure a way to convert old worlds and continue generation downward which supposedly could cause some issues. For one thing the transition wouldn't be seamless, and another being anything you've built at bedrock level could be warped or destroyed altogether(I say this because of the way MC Xbox One world borders were dealt with when converting to Bedrock Edition in that builds near the old world border are destroyed). Of course its entirely possible they'll do it completely different, I am just speculating after all.

    I also see how lowering the world 64 will make for larger caves, which is a good thing.

    So I like that they lowered it, but also think that it may be problematic. Maybe the best route is to just not increase the height of old worlds, or just add 128 blocks on top of old worlds. But idk, we'll just see what they do.

      @__Mine__ I agree with most of what you said, but when I said add 128 blocks to the top of worlds I guess i meant just 128 blocks of air that the play can build in. Hadn't thought about the fact that generation would change.

      Yeah, but since the intent is to give caves more space, splitting that extra height is actually pretty good, and the way they've chosen to implement it is also the most seamless, all things considered.

      Did not know this. That's really interesting. The increased height has obsolesced every mining guide imaginable. Despite this, I'm curious to see where they're going to take this.

  10. Don't know how I missed it, but yesterday they announced a new series coming to Disney+

    Black Panther: Kingdom of Wakanda 

    Really looking forward to this. Sucks that it won't actually have Black Panther in it though.😔

  11. Ok, today's episode of Wandavision was insane.

    I cannot believe I spent months talking about how stupid this show was going to be.

    It has no business being this good. Watching episode 4, I never would've thought this was an episode of a show. The effects were movie quality. The opening for this episode was a masterpiece, showing the chaos of the reverse-snap on the ground level, truly brilliant. It felt like an Endgame after credits scene.

    So far I'm liking it more than my least favorite MCU film, Captain Marvel. Although it's nice to know that the side characters in that movie do serve a purpose.

  12. I can't understand why the new Mine-imator icon Voxy showed is getting so much hate.

    Personally, I like it a lot. I love how simplistic and modern looking it is.

      Which new MI icon?

    3. Voxy

      Voxy

      Yeah, I don't think two downvotes and a negative comment about is a big deal. If the reaction was stronger and more divisive, then I would've considered designing it differently, but I think the handful of reluctant people will either get used to it over time, or they can just... make a shortcut and edit its icon if they really don't like it. 😛

      Nvm, found it.

      I do like the cleaner design, it matches with the style of the MI interface more.

      But tbh, I do think that it doesn't really suggest "Minecraft" enough.

  13. Wouldn't you like to sail the sEA one day? They give you a free boat, and you can get an engine DLC for only $59.99, as well as a gasoline subscription, just $24.99 per month

    (In reality an engine for $60 and a month of gas for $25 would be a great deal)

      Honestly no i wouldn't cause its a game. Your meant to have fun, (or play horror games and be haunted by them because you have no reason to do it)

  14. Wandavision is really making me appreciate these characters more.

    Before this show, Scarlett Witch and Vision were probably my least liked characters.

    But in this show, Vision is hilarious, and they're giving Wanda's character so much more depth. I think Wanda is going crazy in Anakin Skywalker fashion, and will be the villain of phase 4.

      I've noticed that artificial humans tend to be funny. Data from Star Trek is a pretty good example.

  15. Marvel literally got me eagerly anticipating an episode of an 80's style sitcom.

    I don't think I've ever been in this position before.

  16. Idk, decided to jump on the bandwagon and make a meme

    20210122-013950.jpg

    1. Draco63

      Draco63

      Most memes are all uppercase letters for added comedy. They also use a specific font.

      Good comedy tho.

    Goodbye, Mr. President 😔

      Well, one thing everyone can agree on is that he certainly made America a more interesting place.

    2. Yoshifan33

      of all of the Presidents of the U.S., donald trump was definitely (probably) one of them

      Draco63

      I don't think Biden will be a bad president. Pamela Harris, on the other hand...

  18. After seeing the first 2 episodes of Wandavision, I must say I'm pleasantly surprised.

    I actually loved it. The first episode not so much, but the second one was hilarious and gets me excited for next week's episode.

  19. Now that EA longer has exclusive rights to Star Wars games, i wish Lucas Games would get a contract with Valve to make a proper VR game.

    They'd sell even more headset than they did with HL: Alyx

    1. Heavenira

      Heavenira

      Money and sales is not Valve's primary concern.

    2. Yoshifan33

      Yoshifan33

      yep, it's being unable to count to three. haha right guys? i made a funny lol

  20. It's finally happening.

    Ubisoft and Lucasfilm Games are making an open world story driven Star Wars game.

      Know what, you may be right.

      why choose either when you could play Harrison Ford Simulator

      also I JUST CAN'T WAIT FOR BETHESDA TO PERFECTLY EXECUTE THIS GAME, BECAUSE IT'S NOT LIKE THEY'VE UTTERLY BOTCHED ANY OTHER TITLES,

      RIGHT?!?!?!?

  21. Just realized we are getting new Marvel content this Friday!

    Not all that hyped for Wandavision, but hey maybe it will surprise me. Either way, the last Marvel movie I saw I think was Spider-Man Far From Home...in July 2019. So, I'll take anything at this point.

  22. So I watched Tenet...

    And all I can say abouts it is 'what?'. Or should I say '?tahw'...

    Anyway, hopefully I'll understand it when I write this in 14 hours.
