Minecraft in Left 4 Dead?

Posted Image



Minecraft has invaded a number of popular game titles over the last year, and Left 4 Dead is among them. If you happen to have L4D, and want a little more blockiness in your game, check out this awesome map! The video above is a pretty good run-through of the map, if you need a preview. Download links below!

Deathcraft 2 Map: Download

Wait...L4D in Minecraft?

The door is swinging both ways this time, it seems - if you enjoyed Deathcraft 2, then you might appreciate a visit from the L4D characters in your Minecraft world! In the near future, the 4 primary characters from L4D - Louis, Bill, Zoey and Francis - will be available for use in MCX360! Back to Top

Enderman Attack!

Adding Minecraft to real-life situations has long been a popular video method, with many high-quality versions of the idea being widely available.  This particular gem - done by SquareFreaks - is no different, save for one difference: it is pretty scary!

The Ultra-Dense Cannon

Posted Image


Many cannons have been made in Minecraft over the years, and they have come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, power levels and directional versatility.  Still, one cannon stands out above the rest - Conundrumer's Ultra-Dense Cannon!  Touted as the "cannon to end all cannons", this gigantic monstrosity of redstone, pistons and explosives has an incredible operational range of 160km (142km vertical), and a staggering 6,804 blocks of TNT!  It does have one quirk, however: it will only work in 1.2.5 Minecraft!  Due to mechanical changes to the piston in 1.3, this cannon will no longer operate in the new update.

So, with the Ultra-Dense Cannon, we give the 1.2.5 update a huge sending-off.  You could say that it is going out with a bang!

Time Bomb - A New Game Mode

Posted Image


Did you ever play tag?  If so, this interesting take on the game will certainly get your attention; TimeBomb - devised by ExplosiveTNT and GamePlayerHD - is a game mode where players are spawned into an arena, with a certain number of them carrying TNT.  The idea is to tag other players with it, so they wind up carrying the TNT instead of you; once the 1-minute timer runs out, whoever's left carrying the TNT blows up, and the survivors get points!  Of course, it's not as easy as merely tagging your opponents.  The maps are also covered with various wool blocks, each one providing a different effect when walked on: green wool makes you instantly jump very high, blue wool makes you run very fast, and black wool is...bad.  Don't touch the black wool.

Curious to try this game mode yourself?  Check out the author's thread: click here!

Snapshot Updates

This week will not see a tester Snapshot, as 1.3 ramps up for release on August 1st.  Dinnerbone stated that there will not be any Snapshots between now and 1.3's release - there will be a pre-release client of 1.3 available on July 25th however, to give modders, texture pack makers and other community content makers time to get their works updated and tested properly.

1.3 will bring a number of exciting changes to Minecraft, including integrated single-player/multi-player merging, numerous performance updates, dropped (instead of broken) boats, stackable signs and much, much more.  We will keep you posted on pre-release info as it develops!
