Minecraft 1.9 - Yogscast Videos

Here are the Videos the Yogscast have released so far showing info on the 1.9 update. Enjoy!

Minecraft - What does Experience do?

Finally! Notch gave us a clue
Image from MinecraftModding

Notch just tweeted a hint for what experience will do in Minecraft 1.9
He wrote:

"Working on item Enchantments. It costs experience points. It's totally random. It has three tiers. What does an enchantment table look like?"

So apparently we are going to get three tires of "upgrades" for out items, i guess by items he means tools, so you can get a faster pick axe or shovel etc.
This really give's you another reason to go kill mobs.


So Notch just tweeted again, and this time he added the picture above, the way it's going to work is that you can spend your experience points on the "Enchantment table" and it will randomly grant you an enchantment, or magic. What these does i don't know yet.

LOL - My thoughts on League of Legends Dominon

I'm not that impressed

After playing around with Dominion for a couple of matches, i've come to the conclusion that i like the classic game mode a lot more, not saying that dominion is crap, it's great for wanting your LOL fix but knowing you've don't gon 40 min for it.

The fast paced gameplay and the extremely quick leveling and gold farming is very entertaining and i bet it will get even more fun once i learn to outlay of the map a bit better and start winning more matches.

All around a great addition to the game, making it even more time consuming.

The Melanie Iglesias Flip Book: 1 & 2

So this is basically just two girls in underwear dancing to some electronica hit... Part two in in HD....

So Melanie is apparently some kind of mucisian / model.
There really isn't that much to say about her, so just enjoy the damn slide.

Funny YouTube comment:

-Set to 1080p
-Set to full screen.
-Slide pants down...

My personal oppinion: Nr. two is MUCH better..

Cardboard Warfare 2!

Oh my god! This is pure epic!

Pwnisher just uploaded their sequel to Cardboard Warfare and it is pure win!
It almost feels like a bad hollywood movie (in acting) which is amazing for a youtube video!

Didn't watch Cardboard Warfare 1? click here

My only critic: The sound could be turned up for their voices it is very hard to hear what they say.

League of Legends - Xerath, the Magus Ascendant Champion Spotlight

A new Champions joins the Battlefield in Riot Games hugely popular game League of Legends

We've gotten a bunch of new melee champions lately, but Riot Games decided to please us with a caster hero.

Make sure to read: Riven the Exile Champion Spotlight

Riot Games wrote this on their blog

"At Riot Games a big part of our corporate culture is breaking down barriers through innovation. And, while we’re on the subject, this seems like as good a time as any to introduce our latest champion. Meet Xerath, the Magus Ascendant. Previously one of the most powerful mages in Valoran, Xerath’s learned the hard way just what sort of trouble accepting constraints – in this case a gigantic, enchanted sarcophagus – can get you into.
Of course, even a chained Magus Ascendant is somebody you want to avoid underestimating"

Make sure to read: League of Legends Dominion Preview

Looking forward to playing this champion. Hopefully in a Dominion game mode in the near future, right Riot Games?

Minecraft 1.9 Update Leaked

With less than two weeks since the last "leak" Mojang is adding even more features

The strategy of "leaking" the game before release seems like a good idea, since Mojang can get some beta testing of the next patch and make the experience even better for the people who doesn't want to fool around with the software.

In this patch are a bunch of new features:

Swamps are swampier:
A mushroom biome, Image from Minecraft Wiki [source]
The entire swamp biome has been redone for the better. Grass is darker, water is thicker and green, so is leaves, grass and vines. A very good progress indeed. Oh there are lilly pads in the water too.

Mushroom biome :(
All new things aren't always good. This biome, has large numbers of giant mushrooms instead of trees, red cows with mushrooms on their back, and grey gooey dirt. This wouldn't bother me if the ground was made of a new block called ect. "mushroom dirt. The reason this bothers me is if i'm building a castle, and trying to make it medieval looking, this gooey dirt might be located nearby and i won't be able to do anything to remove it. If i put down dirt in the biome it would turn into goo dirt, so there is no way of fixing it.

Nether Dungeons
Image from NerdRage [source]
New dungeons in the nether, containing two new blocks, nether brick and nether brick fence, these are dark with a reddish tint.
In these Nether Dungeons you can find something called Nether Wort wich is a new weed that you can grow just like seeds, but right now they don't have any function, except decoration.
There are also two new mobs in the Nether: Fire Slimes, and Nether Rods, the Fire Slimes are just like normal slimes, but they are read and leave fire particles when they hit the ground, you can encounter a giant Fire Slime which splits up into two medium Fire Slimes upon death, which then splits up into four small Fire Slimes each when killed.
The Nether Rods are genie looking creatures that fly and shot fireballs that ignite your or the ground. They are yellow and spin around, when they are killed they drop Nether Rods which as no use yet.

These are cool! They remind me of some of the Zelda NPC's. Bird like humanoids that walk around with their arms crossed and do nothing (yet). One to two are spawned in each house of the NPC villages and they are pretty funny to observe.
A Snow Golem
Snow Golems
Take two blocks of snow and pluk them down on top of each other, then add a pumpkin on top and BAM! You've got a snow ball firing sentry that follows you. They are quite suicidal, attacking spiders and creepers (snowballs do 0 damage)

Minecraft Mod - Timber! (1.8.1)

Improve the woodcutting mechanic in Minecraft.

This mod has been featured in the infamous Yogbox, which speaks for it self.
The way it works is when you destroy the bottom trunk of a tree the entire trunk will be destroyed, not only adding easier gathering of materials but also a level of realism.

Windows 8 won't support flash

Everyones doing it!

Apple was hugely criticized when they cut off flash support on their OIS devices, and now Windows is walking in their footsteps. The new addition to Windows in "Windows 8"is called Metro, it is highly optimized for touch enabled screens, and looks a lot like the OS on the Windows Phone.

Microsoft announced on their blog that flash as well as other 3rd party software wont be integrated into to Windows 8 Internet Explorer. This is because it would ruin the experience by making everything too bulgy and slow (said Microsoft) 

But fear not. There is an alternative if you cannot live without flash. You can always open up the "classic" windows desktop (made into an app in Windows 8) and from there open the "classic" Internet Explorer.

Worms: Ultimate Mayhem

Check out the single player trailer for the new Worms game

Star Wars Blu Ray Remake

The old classics in HD!

So apparently a lot of people are going nuts, freaking out over the release of a Blu Ray version of the old Star Wars movies. I don't see why, some are saying that they are killing the franchise, but how? I mean, i'm not gonna watch them any less if they are released in HD and if you don't like the added parts just watch the classics, and leave then new one alone.
There has apparently been added a "Noooo" when Darth Vader throws the Emperor down the pit of
death. Pretty wierd to me but you can watch it your self here:

The release date is sometime this month (September)

TGS: Cat Ears That Read Your Mind

This is just mental!

So apparently these "Neko Ears" or Cat Ears respond to your brain waves. As seen in the video by IGN you can see that they are semi functional, their limited movement does dull them down a bit, but else pretty cool technology!

The whole contraption looks like an odd pair of headphones but they are supposed to capture brain waves, making the ears hang down when you aren't concentrating and vice verso.

Jet Pack Joy Ride - Review

Strap two mini-guns to your back and you've got yourself a jetpack

This is the concept of Jet Pack Joy Ride, a iPhone game by Halfbrick Studios.

Jet Pack Joy Ride is a classic highscore iPhone game. The objective of the game is to get as far as possible, dodging lasers, missiles and zappers. By touching the screen Barry fires his machine-guns and flies upwards, this is used to dodge the various obstacles and collection the coins.
There are colored boxes floating on the way containing six different vehicles (a tele-porter, a metallic bird, a gravity suit....) these provide a fresh addition to the game.
While playing you will find special coins that will let you use the slot machine, here you can win bounces or the jackpot (took me a hell of a lot of time to get that jackpot picture down below)
The coins you win or collect can be spent in the shop where you can buy cosmetic upgrades, like clothes and jetpacks.

The game is very fun and extremely addictive, since you loose all your coin when you quit the game you just keep on playing until you can afford something cool (like the shark jetpack above)
For $1,- this is just too good to be true, and there are updates too today they added a dragon vehicle.
