In his August 10 video, YouTube star Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg called for more Minecraft crossovers, and revealed the one he would like to see the most.

PewDiePie took a break from his Minecraft series to upload one of his ‘You Laugh You Lose’ videos on August 10. While the Swedish YouTuber tackled various memes, many of the submissions were Minecraft focused.

One of the segments got the YouTube star thinking about crossovers with the sandbox game, and which one he would like to see happen the most.

Pewds prefaced the discussion by saying that he isn’t usually a fan of crossovers due to them often being corporate marketing. However, he argued “anything” would combine well with Minecraft.

“Usually I cringe at all these corporate crossovers, but please start combining Minecraft with stuff. I would love to see that happen. You can combine Minecraft with anything. It’s still going to be 10/10,” he said.

The Swede said he would like to see Marvel do a crossover with Minecraft. Considering they are one of the largest franchises in the world, it’s probably a safe bet that it would do extremely well.

“Oh my god, can you imagine, Avengers Minecraft edition?” Pewds said. Although specifically, he seemed the most excited about the idea of a Spider-Man crossover.

Minecraft has had crossovers before

Minecraft ‘Nintendo Switch Edition’ was released in May 2017, and included ‘The Super Mario Mashup pack’ which featured Mario-themed skins that helped transform the game into the popular Nintendo franchise.

Other major titles have also been featured before as skin packs, such as the hit Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’, and the massively popular role-playing game ‘Skyrim’. It’s actually kind of shocking that Marvel that hasn’t done a crossover with Minecraft – yet.

Fans rally as Sykkuno, Dream, and more are snubbed by Twitter Verified

On December 2, Twitter rolled out a huge mass verification, where many accounts of top gamers, streaming personalities and more were finally verified after a rather long wait. But some fans were left frustrated when Twitter seemed to gloss over popular creators like Sykkuno, Dream, and CallMeCarson.

Verification on Twitter is often regarded as a huge achievement for rising creators. That little blue tick is generally a marker that someone is making it big, leading to frequent campaigns led by fans for their favorite creators to be granted verified status.

Twitter decided to grant several wishes all at once on December 2 when they verified a huge number of accounts in one go. One such account was that of Corpse Husband, a YouTuber who has been on the platform for a few years, but experienced an unprecedented surge in popularity this year following the Among Us hype.

Corpse Husband is a wildly popular YouTuber who skyrocketed to fame for his Among Us content, although he also narrates True Horror stories and creates music.

But not everyone was celebrating, as among the chaos of fans and creators rejoicing at their new-found verification, some big names were left behind.

Popular streamer Sykkuno trended on the site with the hashtag ‘VerifySykkuno’ as fans vented their frustration about the snub. “Do it, he deserves it,” one fan wrote.

Fellow streamer Valkyrae tweeted a message in support of the internet campaign, which Sykkuno even retweeted from his account.

Other popular creators that found themselves snubbed by the Twitter Verified account included Minecraft YouTuber Dream, and comedy YouTuber CallMeCarson, who each tweeted their own tongue-in-cheek messages calling out Twitter.

Amid the disarray, instead of verifying YouTuber Karl Jacobs’ account, they accidentally verified the wrong Karl Jacobs with just 200 followers, leading to an onslaught of replies from fellow creators finding the bizarre situation hilarious, including Mr Beast.

While this was one of the biggest verification sprees recently, there is no doubt that another one will be right around the corner.

Fans of the huge creators who were snubbed this time around may be in for a slightly longer wait, but with creators like Corpse Husband getting that coveted blue tick, people are getting their hopes up for the next line of verified creators.
