How to Make a Good Duet Video on TikTok

As the first rule of making a good duet video on TikTok then get yourself positioned in the same way as the person of the original TikTok video is positioned. If the person in the original video is standing at the centre position in the middle frame, then try to position yourself like that. If someone has used the close up of his or her face, then you should try to do the same. However, it is not always that you need to try the same position, and it depends what the task the person is doing in the video. But when you try to remain in the same position as the person has done it in the original video then create a sense of coherence.

When you fail to copy the original posture used in the original video, then it may lead you to create a bad video with an amateur mistake. Secondly, always stay yourself on-trend by identifying the videos going to be viral. You have to identify viral videos before it reaches the top of its popularity.

Days Gone was the first of its kind when it came to the market. It was an open-world zombie apocalypse title that brought really good gameplay forward to the players.  But as obvious it is with products with such characters, it had some glaring technical issues and was riddled with bugs. These faults are some things that PS5 needs to address on the release of Days Gone 2.

Soon, Sony will officially unveil its next-generation console, the PS5. And only after the release, the main roster of games that the console will be providing will be seen. While the company has not made an official statement, there has been a news and the player-base believes that they will at least see potential appearances from God of War 2, Horizon Zero Dawn 2, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, and Days Gone 2. (Probably not all of them, but these titles will be big for the PS5).

Days Gone, which was released in April of 2019, failed to meet expectations that were hoped it would reach. But it did manage to create a big enough fan-base to outsell God of War, The Last Guardian, and Detroit: Become Human in its first month, enough to greenlight a sequel to Bend Studio’s open-world zombie adventure. And if Bend Studios decides to go with PS5 for the next installment, it would need to address some major issues.

Deacon St. John & the Supporting Cast

One of the major flaws that emerged with the original game was the game’s main character. We play as outlaw-turned-drifter Deacon St. John, excellently portrayed by Star Wars: The Force Unleashed actor Sam Witwer. The story revolves around the character looking for answers about his wife. But Deacon himself is incredibly uneven, and his lust for murder and revenge often becomes too much.

The supporting characters that help Deacon, along with his quests, feel really unreal and unused. This is so because no other character is fleshed out beyond their basic role in advancing the narrative besides Sarah. For example, Deacon’s best friend Boozer is injured in the first moments of the game and hence plays a very small role over the radio for the majority of the later game. There are simply too many side-characters, catalyst characters, and camp leaders that could’ve been used to flesh out the core cast of characters, including its villains.

Jack of All Trades, Master of None

Bend Studio went absolutely all-out while creating Days Gone. With an expansive and gorgeous open-world with a cinematic story, light RPG mechanics, multiple hub-worlds, vehicle gameplay and combat, hundreds of collectibles, challenge modes, and endgame content in the form of the game’s biggest hook, Freaker Hordes. Days Gone became the definition of “Jack of all Trades” as a game. It did a little bit of everything but did nothing great.

Performance Issues & Bugs on PS4

Despite the major issues the game has in the storytelling and the few glitches in different places, the game plays out pretty well. The point where the character of the whole game falls apart is how Days Gone performs on PS4. Even after a full year of patches and updates, the game’s performance hasn’t all that improved on the PlayStation 4. It is still suffering from major issues with frame rate, screen tearing, textures popping in and out, environments not loading, and enough glitches and bugs for a highlight reel.

For example, in the mission “What it Takes to Survive,” players are still experiencing glitches where the environment doesn’t load properly before the player enters a cave at the beginning of the mission. And if the entry does not load, a horde can’t enter; hence the mission does not finish. The only known fix is restarting the game and hoping for the best.

Bend Studio had not worked with the PS4 or the open-world genre, making Days Gone was an incredibly ambitious title for the studio that seemed to pay off. It was a good idea, but where its critical response hit was a lack of polish on the final product: uneven frame rates, texture pop-ins, and a lack of cohesion between missions and side content, and far too much bloat, whereas other PS4 games have proved that more is not always better.

With this experience gained, if Bend Studio does put its head down to create something better than its predecessor, it can develop a thriving franchise that PlayStation fans adore. Using the first game as the base, and addressing the issues it has, Days Gone 2 could be a much tighter, focused, and a polished sequel that doubles down on the game’s story and zombie horde look. Hopefully, Sony will have some exciting surprises with the new PS5 reveal.


Over the years, we have seen numerous sandbox games rise and fall, but Minecraft has reigned supreme throughout its journey. While the game has consistently managed to garner a following, it received a massive boost in 2019 courtesy to PewDiePie. Now the game has returned with a new ARPG, known as Minecraft Dungeons, and gamers are losing their mind over it.

Minecraft Dungeons can be seen as an ARPG for beginners, but it is not necessarily a negative thing. You get several missions, intriguing members, and the classic Minecraft touch throughout the gameplay. One unique thing is emeralds, the in-game currency. You can spend emeralds to buy new gear, which can help you progress even quicker. The fact itself establishes the importance of emeralds, so it is viable for you to want them.

Method to Build Emeralds

They can be gained subsequently as you play, but there is an even quicker way to collect them. You have a chance of collecting emeralds when you level up. At that moment, you need to check your gear for an enchantment named Prospector. This increases the probability of emeralds dropping near the enemies, allowing you to progress quickly.

The game proposes alternative ways to gain more chests, fight more enemies, and unveil more secrets. All this aids the player to reach the max level quicker, but it’ll cost a heap of emeralds too. There are numerous tricks to find chests in the game, and they mostly include speed. The game also informs the players about all the chests they have missed after the level ends. This is a good benchmark for players to know whether or not they searched adequately. You should know that you can get pots within every level that drop emeralds after you break them.

You can also use weapons like the Last Laugh and Diamond Pickaxe to increase the drop rate of emeralds. The guns can also be used to make class builds, providing more value to the players.  You can also salvage unused gears to quickly and consistently gain more emeralds. Additionally, the activity will also refund the enchantment levels you have invested in the said gears. You can then use it to enhance more equipment, moving a valuable one.

So, What’s the Final Saying?

Without any doubt, Minecraft is one of the best sandbox games available in the virtual market. It can currently be played on PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC.  So, if you are thinking of exploring the fascinating world of Minecraft, then do not waste time and download it now on your desired device with ease.

Minecraft is developed and published by Mojang studios, Xbox game studios, and Double Eleven. There are two types of modes available in the game, i.e., multiplayer and single-player mode. So, please choose your favorite mode in the Minecraft world and enjoy playing it in your leisure time with ease.

Some recent reports have revealed that Twitter is striving hard to develop a feature allowing users to quote a Tweet with only a reaction. Here is everything you need to know.

The users of Twitter will soon become able to do something more than only to like the tweet or retweet it with comments. Twitter is working on to develop a new feature referred to as the new quote tweet that will be introduced with several reactions. Twitter is adding several modifications to its platform to enhance the user experience. The latest feature can be seen as a significant addition to the microblogging platform.

The social media giant Facebook began expanding its Like feature back in the year 2016. The social media giant provided its users to choose and react to the messages from a wide range of reactions. With the introduction of such a feature by Facebook, the social media sites become much more standard than ever before. For a long time, the standard social media practices involve Like, share and comment on the posts. But as long as people started using social media in more numbers, the users began feeling the need for some more features than only to like or comment on posts. For example, many users find that it is not appropriate to Like a post related to some of the negative incidents. Many users expressed their views that there should be features that can be used to show support to the posts associated with negative or sad incidents without adding a comment. So, almost every social media platform started adding expressing reactions such as sad, love, tearful face, etc. Different social media platforms added these reactions in the form of emojis that we often used in our comments.

Recently, Jane Manchun Wong has posted a Tweet and revealed that Twitter is doing everything to innovate the reactions. Ruther, He has discovered that the microblogging platform is experimenting with a wide range of responses. Twitter wished to introduce this new reaction feature to the users so they can respond to the Tweets using only a reaction. Also, the information tweeted by Jane Manchun Wong has been confirmed by the director product manager of Twitter. The director product manager of TwitterSuzanne Xie, has said Twitter is testing a new feature to be further used by the people while quoting their tweets with attached emojis.

Will Twitter introduce the new feature?

While it is true that the coders at the company are exploring multiple options to look into the new feature, it does not mean Twitter will implement it. Reverse engineering visible in this reaction feature is something that often developers and coders use to look through the software to find new features. Also, Reverse engineering is good when it comes to showing the users regarding whatever original is the company currently working on or trying to figure out. However, it is always the final version of the feature of the product. There are several possibilities as the company may decide to add the reactions. It is also possible that the company will use new emojis to add the feature. There is also the possibility that the company may scrap it entirely to take a new and different approach.

Apart from these, it is also true that the microblogging and social networking platform has never taken an interest in talking about its innovations or design modifications. For example, in the initial days when Twitter was launched the users were retweeting each other by copying and pasting the exact text of the post. Later, the company introduced an integrated feature for retweeting and till the feature arrived on the platform no one exactly knew about it. However, it is very interesting to see how the company is exploring many new ways to make its platform much more interactive along with improving the user experience. So, even if the company is working on the new feature, it can’t be said when it will arrive.

The very loved Netflix series probably did a blunder. Fuller House missed the chance of including Michelle in its last season. The twins, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, who originally played the character for the last eight seasons of Full House, have refused to play it any further. The characters of the series sometimes talk about Michelle, as an indication to the viewers that the Tanner sister is still a character of the show. The viewers felt her absence immediately when they couldn’t see the character in the first season of Fuller House. Yet, she was expected to be seen at least in the final episode. It is stated that Michelle is now settled in New York, where she is running a fashion empire. Yet, the viewers feel that the ship has sailed for the makers.

Viewers tried looking for Michelle, or even traces of her presence in the plot throughout the season. Fuller House had a bunch of twists and turns in the end, with two of her sisters getting married. Even then, the show didn’t mention her name, and it added to moments of annoyance for the viewers. Even the slightest resemblance of Michelle could have worked, but the Netflix series won’t get a second bite at the cherry now. The incident when Danny (Bob Saget) faced a mid-life crisis raised some expectations to see Michelle again. The plot had a major twist when Stephanie had her daughter Danielle but without Michelle’s presence.

All these instances and more could have become chances of wisely incorporating Michelle’s character in the plot. However, to the viewers’ great surprise, the show kept the character aside once and for all. Cameron-Bure revealed that the makers didn’t approach Olsens to return in the final season again. It is said that the sisters had repeatedly refused the offer before. The Fuller House was loaded with hints and gaps that had the best chances of incorporating the character and making the show appear complete in all respects. Yet, the show chose to end it abruptly without the presence of Michelle. Being the successful owner of a fashion empire, she could have gifted her bride-to-be sisters their wedding attires, at least. Such instances could have been used for advantage.

Another smart strategy could have been possible if the plot included Michelle’s presence, sitting in New York, in the dress selection,  even without showing her physical presence. However, the show brought Berta, a dress designer, for Stephanie’s big day. Berta isn’t new to the season. The character was seen in some seasons of the show before. Berta brought some pieces of laughter in the storyline, yet, Michelle’s presence was dearly missed.

It is disappointing to find Michelle’s absence in the last season. Yet, what is more frustrating is the way the plot dealt with her absence. The character could have been shown drowned in work, as a reason for not attending her sister’s wedding. The producers could have used so many nuances and parts of the plot to make an excuse for her absence, instead of simply showing her awkward absence.

Full House has been a show that showcased how families are important in lives. A family can see the funniest and the hardest times when every family member is firmly connected to each other. For a franchise that brought the importance of “togetherness” on the screens, it is absurd to show one of its crucial characters missing throughout the finale season. The producers could have tried more to incorporate the character, or at least her fake resemblance’ in the finale.
