Minecraft

Minecraft
I have lately been playing minecraft lately after hearing so much about it. I have to say I first was turned off by the graphics but as soon as I started playing that all went away. The game it self doesn't seem that deep, but its what the players do with that big open world that really makes the game stand out. I want to start my own server, maybe invite a couple of followers if there is interest. Any tips or resources anyone wants to offer to a new player? I have mostly just been mining and making a big tall tower.


Starcraft 2

In the Starcraft realm I have been playing a lot of 2v2s and 3v3s, and I am really starting to get my Protoss strategy down. I am starting to scout more, and be in there base with an army first. Its really fun starting to play well with teammates and starting to know how they will react and work together.

Moving

Also I should be moving here within the next week hopefully I will be able to keep posting regularly. Thanks to everyone for following.

Both of these games are great fun but I've fallen off the wagon on both.

Minecraft is taking over my life!

Minecraft has been engulfing all of my friends.

Zealot said...

Yeah its way hard to stay up on games that take up so much of your time.

Been playing minecraft since Alpha 1.1. The game is awesome and will absorb your life if you have a creative imagination and some drive to build. Best tip? as a new player have your internet browser open to the crafting page on the minecraft wiki. That is the only way to know how to build stuff. Also, make sure your walls have ledges/over-croppings to prevent spiders from climbing over them. Second, Get Zan's minimap mod. It'll stop you from getting lost until you can craft a map. finally, Watch some "lets play"s on youtube to learn strategies. I'd recommend MC:LOTL or Coe's Quest

ST2 is win. I switch between P and T with my 2v2 teams.

Minecraft is awesome but a big time spender too, that's why I stopped it.

Dave said...

Minecraft is a truly excellent game.

Pro tip: At y=12 (that's 12 spaces above bedrock) you usually find the most gold/diamonds.

Pro tip: Make sure you don't have any valuable equipment with you when you're dealing with lava.

It took me long time to really get into minecraft too, but once I did it was like I knew that it was my purpose in life.

Breakingbrokers said...

HiFi said...

I want to pick up starcraft 2 because I'm a fan of sc1. But I can't afford it lol.

Chris Hashemi said...

I still have yet to try out Minecraft.

Eulogio Gallo said...

Part of the appeal of minecraft is the simplicity, that includes the graphics.

Malkavian said...

i dont want to bite on the Minecraft fever just yet, i need my social life for the moment.

Earo16 said...

Minecraft seems to spread like a virus, though I'd think that's a good thing, as I haven't met a single person that hasn't loved it.

If you want something a bit deeper, I'd recommend Terraria--essentially a 2d Minecraft with more RPG elements and Castlevania/Metroid-y.

GONNA ROB A BANK said...

I wanna play minecraft! I've been hearing so much about it lately! Now...time to get some cash for it.

*heading to nearest bank..with ski mask*

Dvallej said...

HurricaneKassi said...

Havent played either of those games. My boyfriend and I are really into World of Warcraft and were checking out Runes of Magic now. It looks shit on my tiny notebook computer lol but it might be a fun game otherwise.

Zander said...

thanks for stopping by my page. I love your blog! Its really CLICKS with me, ya know? :)

animestan said...

I've done my fair share of gametime for minecraft. The most useful thing I learned to get resources was to basically learn how to mine properly. Search up a few vids on "strip mining". It's great on getting rare minerals.

Dr. Heckle said...

I've never played minecraft. I'll have to check it out. I think it's pretty old isn't it?

Bob said...

I might try out minecraft too one time!

Rob said...

Mine craft is pretty sweet.

Dola said...

Brightview said...

I played it a bit. It was pretty fun. At E3 they announced it for the xbox which is pretty cool.
