First Notes:
A game known to many people, it just recently sold over 2 million copies. So, gratz to notch and his crew. Not many people can make an indie game so successful as his is.
To anyone who has never played. Minecraft is a 3-D sandbox game. How to describe it: It is a game of honor, a game of skill, but mostly, a game of mining and crafting. Not much more to say.You probably figured that, but you know, I was just checking. The game consists of 2 primary game types, Survival Singleplayer, commonly referred to as SSP, and Survival Multiplayer, commonly referred to as SMP. You can craft tools of different grade, starting with wood and gold (which is actually hard to find), followed by stone, iron and diamond. there are also zombies who have played so much video games, that the sun burns their skin, skeletons who have aimbots, creepers, an explosive and failed attempt at a pig, and slimes which honestly sound like chat roulette.
What has been happening:
Moving on, it is int he 1.5_01 beta state, booster tracks, pressure tracks, weather, and achievements were what we had to look forward to.
On Multiplayer:
Servers are essentially a dime a dozen. Similar to the idea of a "video game commentator", everybody and their grandmother has one. You can find some good ones, but in my experiences they mostly suck. I would start a server with your friends if you want to play multiplayer.
Another really big part of the game is griefing. It is a nice, broad term used to classify being destructive. Having TNT in the game really does not help, btw.
Final Words: (today's letter: A)
