Minecraft | A Better Sorting System
Over the many years of playing Minecraft there has always been one thing that is extremely frustrating. Item management.
If you've ever played the game you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. Chests stacked on top of chests filled to the brim with random items. You end up on this ridiculous hunt through all of your chests trying to find that "extra stack of iron I know I have.."
Even if you're the type to separate everything into its assigned chests every time you get back to your item storage area, it can still be frustrating! Running from chest to chest to drop off 6 dirt here, 9 diorite here, 37 cobble stone in the chest over there and so on. Props to you for going through the effort but I find it far too annoying to deal with..
BUT THERE'S A BETTER WAY!!!!
Once I progress far enough into the game I generally build an item sorting unit. I do have to go back to the video every time it seems because it may not be complicated but if it's not set up correctly its useless. I've posted the video below that I usually reference for my build. I have changed some things myself to make it work better for me but I'll go into that after the video.
Did you watch it?
Kinda makes sense right? Isn't it exciting to think that you can stop spending your time constantly sorting!!? The build he creates is fairly easy to follow but there are a couple things that I changed up in mine to make it work better (In my opinion).
First thing I changed was how many Blocker blocks are being used. By putting one in 4 of the 5 it stops the hopper from being able to fill up with anything but your selected item but it takes about 41 of your selected item to stack up before it feeds through. If it's cobblestone that won't phase you at all but if you're feeding diamond through the system you won't want to lose 41 of them to make the system work. Instead I found that 4 stacks of 10 Blocker cubes in a hopper (plus your item of choice) means that your item stack only needs to be about 5 instead of 41. I didn't set it up to only use 1 just in case something goes wrong it'll have a little variance and not remove the blocks needed to keep it running properly.
Secondly I wanted the system to be able to hold massive quantities without me ever having to shift things around. This really doesn't change the original system at all aside from just building onto it. The picture above shows how I stacked everything so that the chests are being fed from other chests constantly refilling anything that is taken out.
Put all that together with a nice wall to hide everything behind and you're left with a really good looking storage room!
Item sorting and management is an extremely tedious and frustrating part of any game. Building an item sorting system in Minecraft like in the video above will save you time and effort in the long run.

Darkest Dungeon is captivating as soon as you start it up but will that maintain. With so many games out there some just aren't worth your time and for me Darkest dungeon falls into the latter category.
Looking for an open world game full of quests yet with the options to craft and farm? Yonder might be what you've been waiting for! With its mix of crafting elements to build up the world and exploration you'll find yourself scouring the island to save the inhabitants from the murk that is taking over this island.
Genshin Impact: Gacha gaming that’s… good? I often find myself not knowing quite how to feel about mobile games. While capable of providing cheap thrills and alleviating temporary boredom, they generally don’t possess the sort of staying power more robust console and PC titles do.
Has gaming lost its magic? Are you unable to find a game worth your time? Do you scroll endlessly through your library and waste time watching trailers - but nothing engages you? You might have Gamer's Block! Don't worry though, there's hope for you yet.
The game is a blast to play. I am not one who tends to play these competitive first person shooters but I'm starting to think maybe I should be spending more time playing them. I did get better over the course of playing but still got obliterated each round. Some of that was due to glitching in the game but generally it was just me.
I don't play a lot of competitive first person shooters. Call of Duty specifically I haven't played since high school. That made getting Beta access to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War a little nerve wracking. I figured that I should record my first attempt at playing this game so that you can what it's all about
Most games that I remember from years past are the classics known for their great gameplay. I can confidently say that's not the case for this game. The crazy nature of this game, from animation to concept, is definitely what has kept it in my mind all these years.
This quirky throwback to old style gaming got me hooked pretty quickly. Even with it's simple play style the game offers a variety of challenges that'll keep you staring that the screen.
I bet there is a number of you out there who are going "Finally a third Pikmin!" Well sorry to burst your bubble but the game has actually been out for a long while. Whether you've never played the third game or just haven't touched it in a while the free demo in the Nintendo Store is worth the download!
Although the game came out 9 years ago it still has a lot of playability today. Whether you're just trying to find areas that you've never explored or creating a whole new build opposite or what you normally play there's numerous ways to keep you interested. With the addition of the Amiibo it can be even more exciting.
The game reminds me of a classic arcade side scroller game but with an upgraded 3D depth to the scenery. Flying in a plane (that can also fly underwater?) while shooting the things that come onto the screen to stay alive and hopefully upgrade as you go!
While we are awaiting the sequel in the much beloved “Breath of the Wild” series Nintendo surprised us with a prequel! Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity lets you play through the war in the years previous to the adventure we’ve come to love. Get through Hyrule as any of the previous heroes!

Nintendo has adamantly stated that the DS would not be brought to an end because of the Switch. This was hard to believe as the Nintendo Switch is very similar to the DS consoles. Staying true to their word for much longer than anticipated their latest update may bring an end to the DS.
