During Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg’s September 13 video, the YouTube king considered his future plans for his series after he reacted to mods and creations from the Minecraft subreddit. 

PewDiePie reached the ‘end’ of vanilla Minecraft after taking down the Ender Dragon and reaching the very bottom level of the sandbox title on August 25, which has left some wondering what comes next.

Fans got a glimpse of what the potential future could be for the Swede’s popular gaming series when in his latest video he reacted to mods and fan creations which left him considering some potential ideas.

PewDiePie’s Minecraft future

During the video, the YouTube king showed his audience mods created by infamous modder ‘McMakistein’, who made houses that can walk on legs and even fly across the map. This left the Swede considering the future for his Minecraft series.

“See, a lot of people have been telling me I should start using mods in Minecraft now. Like, modded survival is now a thing, to kind of keep it fresh for you. And you can do this kind of stuff,” the YouTube star said, showing off the mod.

Later on in the video, Pewds discovered that bees would be coming to Minecraft in a future update, and debated whether he should wait for the official release, or cheat to spawn them instead.

“There’s bees in Minecraft!? I don’t know, am I allowed to play the new one? Because I don’t think you can spawn them without cheating. Or should I just wait for the actual update. I think I should just wait.” he said.

The YouTuber quickly changed his mind upon seeing a player-created data pack which lets people put a saddle on bees and ride them. “Oh my God, okay, I’m getting the bees” he said in excitement.

PewDiePie has used Minecraft mods before

While the YouTube king is considering a fully-modded Survival mode in the future, he actually used a data pack created by the popular modder previously in his August 7 video, where he faced off against himself in an epic boss fight.

After the Swede battled with his clone who attacked him with floating explosive bro fists, he was rewarded with his infamous PC gaming chair as a mount, and headphones that played his own song ‘Bitch Lasagna’ in game, giving fans a taste of how insane his future Minecraft episodes could be with actual mods.

As of the time of this article, PewDiePie has over 101 million subscribers, making him the most subbed individual content creator on the platform.

He reached the major milestone on August 25, and was rewarded with a ‘Red Diamond’ Play Button from YouTube itself.

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

(Topic starts at 35:41)

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
