Too true man. I love terraria. Whilst this does hold true I believe that they’re both perfect in their designated aspects. Terraria is built for adventure and action which it does beautifully and it makes me so happy to play it over and over again restarting every time. Minecraft however does the whole creativity and building thing so well and is so accessible for any kind of person with all the mods and mini-games and things you can do with it. Both perfectly good at what they’re made for.
Just a few months after we brought Minecraft to Nintendo Switch, we’re double-dipping with the big N to bring the game to the New Nintendo 3DS series. Whatever next, an N64 port? Get on it, Jens!
We want to stress that the game is only on the New Nintendo 3DS series, and we’ve used all the technical might of the dual-screened wonder machine to give you world sizes of 2016x2016 and 128 blocks high! Multiplayer won’t be available at launch but we’ll have more to share on the feature later. This edition’s closest equivalent is 0.15.4 of Minecraft: Pocket Edition, and we’ll be continuing to update from there!
That dual screen setup helps make crafting easier than ever, with quicker access to your inventor

YOU GUYS THIS TOOK ME FREAKING FOREVER BUT I’VE DECIDED TO ATTEMPT TO DO SOME MCSM FANIMATIONS AND THAT MEANS RECREATING THE CAST IN BLENDER 3D
Original concept renders of Petra– you guys are welcome to offer feedback if you have it, I did the best I could with the references I had but I’m not 100% positive that the details are correct. If anyone has additional references please throw them at me lol.
Modeling-wise, the only part I haven’t finished for Petra is one last set of mouth pieces to give her a few additional facial expressions, but that’s about it– it’ll mostly just be texture/color adjustments now and then rigging! And yes, the rigging will include better facial expressions lol
Also seriously you guys this project has given me such respect for the people working on actual MCSM holy cow… 3d modeling is never easy but dude, just because these guys are cube people does NOT mean it’s much simpler than a more realistic model o.o Huge shoutout to the people who work with these cube people for their job, you guys are honestly incredible!
fun fact: this version of Petra has 26 individual parts, not including the final two I have yet to add for her mouth
Today we created a procedural generated Minecraft chunk. This was done all in code! We then went on to and also made it generate cave systems. We could change both the cave generation and the terrain and the game was running with sliders! Loving coding!
The Hands Free controller was developed for kids who didn’t have the use of their hands. The controller is designed to be worn on the players chest. It has a long joy stick that could be moved by using your chin and a straw-like rubber tube that would activate the “A” button when blown into or the “B” button when sipped! It works surprisingly well and is easier to use than you’d expect.
It was tested by kids at the Children’s Orthopedic Hospital in Seattle before being released publicly in 1989. It wasn’t sold in stores and had to be ordered directly from Nintendo.
It’s heartwarming that a company would put so much research and development into something that they knew they wouldn’t sell many of to make sure that everyone had an opportunity to play games. Things like this are why I love Nintendo.
I’ve decided to do short reviews on all the rare or weird stuff in my display case. Some of it I’ve posted about before but it’s been a long time and others I’ve never talked about at all.
