minecraft castle in the sky

Mocchi Hajikura has recreated Castle in the Sky one block at a time in Minecraft. It’s mind-bogglingly massive. No wonder it took four years to complete.

You can see the first and second videos in what will eventually be a five-part series after the break. Each week he plans to release another video in the series so he can show off every bit of his creation. Four years is a heck of a commitment and it looks like he didn’t miss a thing.

kazzak

It would be easy for me to nerd rage about the fact that a very talented Death Knight took out the toughest world boss in WoW right now all by himself, but I’m too busy being mightily impressed.

DK Raegwyn soloed Supreme Lord Kazzak, who’s currently supposed to be a 40 man world boss in Tanaan Jungle, which is the newest area in the Warlords of Draenor expansion. We’re talking about a boss who could probably kill my level 100 warlock just by looking at her funny.

While it’s easy to say that DK’s are OP (over powered), and there’s no doubt that DK’s do have some very strong abilities that make them excellent tanks, there’s still a good deal of skill and timing in staying alive and killing a boss who has 40 million hit points to your 460k. Not to mention the time and energy it took to get the gear he’s wearing.

He condensed the 15 minute encounter into a 4 minute video, which you can check out after the break.

doomception

YouTuber The ZombieKiller has created the most meta way to play Doom. He’s created a download that will allow you to play Doom inside of Doom.

Now all we need is to play Doom inside of Doom inside of Doom. Or maybe play Doom on an inkjet printer or TI calculator inside of Doom.

See the video after the break.

unreal sonic

We’ve already seen what a Mario game would look like in Unreal Engine 4, an it was a bit unsettling. It was just odd to see a cartoony Mario running around in such realistic environments. Now it’s Sonic’s turn, and the results are actually pretty awesome. Still strange, but definitely awesome.

Check it out after the break…

hearthstone kripparrian main

While I’m a huge Warcraft fan, I haven’t spent a lot of time playing Hearthstone. Still, I know that the game has some hardcore players and even a world championship. YouTube’s Kripparrian is definitely focused on Hearthstone and, when Ricardo Salomao and Simone Fontana aka 3DNA were commissioned to make him a 3D printed card, they decided to have a little fun.

Kripp, as he’s known on Reddit, has a reputation for bemoaning his terrible luck, so I find it amusing that the card he commissioned has the ability to “become the target of all random effects”.

And yes, you can contact them to commission your own custom 3D Hearthstone card.

portal-companion-cube-table

Reddit user fetchbeer recently shared this glorious DIY project of a Portal-themed weighted storage cube coffee table. He even drafted 10 pages of blueprints so that anyone with the proper skills can make their own.

The best part is undoubtedly the addition of blue LEDs that give the cube it’s glow. The result looks just perfect and I am basically going to demand he make these for retail immediately.

Check out images from this awesome build and his draft plans after the break.

game-table

This gorgeous custom table pays homage to the classic N64 console with superb craftsmanship and functionality. I would have killed for this as a kid.

Super fan and DIYer, Mark Haggett, built the gaming table of our dreams to honor his favorite console. The wiring and motherboard are embedded directly within the table and he cleverly cut grooves for the controller cables to make the controllers themselves neatly accessible from the couch. The table also includes cartridge shelving, hanging controller storage and warp pipe legs.

His wonderful craftsmanship also afforded the inclusion of an 8-bit wooden block design of Super Mario. It’s really a remarkable piece of nostalgic art.

Check out images from his build after the break.
