Confused on Steam Play and Proton? Be sure to check out our guide.

Excited for the huge Caves & Cliffs upgrade coming to Minecraft? Even though it's being split in half, we certainly are and you can get a little more behind the scenes info in a new video.

Caves are one of the most unloved areas in Minecraft, so to see Mojang put some effort into sprucing them up a bit is quite exciting. Digging deep for riches should be much more enticing than it currently is and there's a lot of new goodies coming. What about the mobs though? There's plenty of new there too.

As a reminder the first part of Caves & Cliffs arrives "mid-2021" bringing with it the new blocks, mobs, copper and more with the second part due towards the end of the year to include the expanded world generation for new caves, increases to the height and depth world limits, new mountain generation, new biomes and so on. There's a seriously huge amount to look forward to for Minecraft this year.

Minecraft is such a mess...

We fired it up in an attempt to give us something to play while Valheim is waiting for the content patch. It pretty much looks the way it did the last time I tried playing it, which was.. close to a decade ago.

Then you have the texture packs... They're either just in complete, people have been working on the same ones for years, and have given up. Or they have the full versions behind pay walls.

Shaders for adding Ray Tracing to the Java version are BRUTAL to the system. Like my system goes from 700-800 fps down to like 45.
