Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Quick Fix Edition #2

I've been playing Minecraft since Alpha 1.2.2, and in that time I've seen some amazing things. Entire worlds recreated, amazing adventure maps, and some mind-blowing contraptions. This, however, has got to be one of the most amazing things I've seen so far. Youtube user nuropsych1 made a 5 minute long Beetlejuice roller coaster (minecart track). And what makes this even more impressive, is he did it in XBOX Minecraft. I, personally, can't see how people can play Minecraft with a controller, but apparently it's not that difficult after seeing this creation.

The basic concept for this roller coaster comes from the intro to the Beetlejuice cartoon from the 80s/90s, while also throwing in a lot of stuff from the actual movie. What's also impressive is that he did this in one take, without jerking the view, and always seeming to be looking in the right spot at the exact right time.

I am extremely impressed with this build, and nuropsych1 has all the props I can give. Mad ones at that, like, seriously angry ones. Great job, bro.

If that wasn't enough for you, then here's a couple more links to click...

  1. You know, it’s been nearly a decade since I truly cared about DBZ. But… I can’t lie. I’m kinda excited. Looks corny, cheesy (mmm, cheesy corn), but dammit… I wanna see it. =D

  2. That Beetlejuice song is awesome (as is the minecraft clip ofcourse)
