It’s pretty clear from the Harry Potter books and movies that if Hogwarts was real, it would be huge. But that hasn’t stopped modders from recreating the school of witchcraft and wizardry as a ginormous map inside vanilla Minecraft – with quests, puzzles, trade, and so much more included. Best of all, it’s due to release very soon.
There’s no doubt creating a near-constant stream of YouTube content all year round can be pretty hard work, and it looks like it might be taking its toll on one of the platform’s highest profile creators.

Fans of any game are always looking to change the rules of play. Whether that be modding or glitching through walls it’s regularly a way to make a game easier, however this Minecraft player made life very difficult for themselves by completing the game without mining a single block (via PC Gamer).
Minecraft isn’t just a game, it’s a lifestyle – at least, that’s the impression I get from the endless toys, clothes, and books I see with Steve and the Creepers on the cover.
