Minecraft is an indie game where you mine for materials and place blocks to build anything you want. It's really fun, and I just recently bought it. It has a sort of 3D 8 bit style to it, and even exploding zombies and monsters come out at night. You can build towns and even cities out of the materials you find in the game, and what's even cooler is that the materials are realistic, so gold breaks easily, fire will burn down wooden houses and so on. So, anyone else played this yet? Because it's a lot of fun.

Commala-come-come,
The battle's now begun!
And all the foes of men and rose
Rise with the setting sun.


I am He who howls in the night; I am He who moans in the snow; I am He who hath never seen light; I am He who mounts from below.
My car is the car of Death; My wings are the wings of dread; My breath is the north windís breath; My prey are the cold and the dead.

I've actually been reading a lot about this game all over my blogs and was on my way to watch some gameplay videos of it before I got sidetracked with something else... Still need to watch them.

Wish there was a demo. Kinda reluctant to put any money down on a game that I can't even try. Videos may change my mind.

Here's a let's play of it, if that helps.

You can download a free version. You have unlimited resources and there aren't any monsters, though.

Huh. Well, thanks, man. I downloaded the EXE and will be watching those videos once I'm done with some work.

I hope the monsters don't add any drastic changes to the gameplay that would make it much more fun to play.

The main fun (for me at least) really comes from having to go and earn your resources. It's amazing the sense of accomplishment you can get from building a tiny shack with the wood you just punched out of a tree.

Yeah the stuff people do in this game is almost autistic.

Finally watched some of the videos, including the LP, and I definitely see the potential this game has. It reminds me a lot of Animal Crossing in how it's pretty slow and boring in the beginning, but can become much more fun later on, with the obvious difference here being that, aside from gameplay, it's not better to just play the game for a short period of time a day to keep yourself from cheating out of boredom.

Throughout the first three videos of that PL, I found myself constantly visiting the Minecraft wiki to look for things like doors, torches, and methods of navigation (like a map)... I was worried about there being no way to keep track of your position in the world until I realized that there's compasses.

With the crafting guide in hand, I'm definitely going to create my own hellish underground labyrinth when I get more free time/feel more energetic.

Actually in all honesty I find the beginning of the game to be rather frantic. You're spawned in a land where you have no resources and the day is ticking away. You've gotta find a suitable place to build your first home and gather the resources to do so before night hits and the creepers start coming after you.

Then again, I play it with the difficulty ramped up, so...

But yeah, I friggin love this game. Try playing with this mod:

I'd agree if not for the facts that it's not that hard to just dig a hole into the earth and then seal it back up once the sun comes down and that you have jack shit in the beginning, so dying really doesn't cost you anything.

Assuming it's true, I find it amusing that the map's surface area is approximately 8 times that of the Earth's. Wonder if the same can be said of the Nether.

That's no way to play the game. There's no adventure in digging a hole. confused.gif

You've never been underground before? Just what the hell have you been doing in Minecraft, anyway? rolleyes.gif

Seriously, though, I'm just saying that you've nothing to lose in the start and creating a shelter isn't exactly that complicated...

Agreed. I just like finding the perfect spot when I start a new world. Doesn't leave as much time for actually making the shelter once I find it.

Beta 1.3 came out today. Got some nifty new features, like being able to create a bed to sleep on to skip to morning. Also some better shading in the graphics. Makes it look prettier.

It's a shame that beds don't give you the ability to sleep until nightfall.

I do like how it becomes your respawn point, though.

Agreed, I was tired of keeping a home right near my respawn point for when I died during the night.

How about we add to this topic some of our CRAZY Minecraft stories? I found a dungeon above ground right after making a new world today. Got my shit FUCKED. UP.

Well, would you look at that...

I love how Minecraft isn't even finished and people are already ripping it off. Originality? What's that?

Okay, that's just sad.
