Minecraft?

So I've been hearing alot lately about this and I think it may be time for me to jump on the bandwagon.  As most of you know I am in college.  While going to college I don't work during the school year so that when projects and such come up I have time to do them.  So I tend to not spend very much money during the school year (as little as possible.  Only gas, food, cigarettes usually) This cuts my gaming budget alot so I only buy games if I really think that me and my friends will play it for a long time or if it will turn out to be a very interesting play through.  This being said, Minecraft is super cheap and I think I can get away with it.  Hopefully it's as good as everyone says it is.

Do yall play Minecraft? What do you think about it?

In other news.  Nvidia has come out with their newest GPU.  The GTX 590.  This thing is nothing less than a powerhorse completely blowing the current top tier 580 completely out of the water.  With dual cores and 3gb, yes 3GIGS of ddr5 ram, it is quite possibly the most powerful, and fastest GPU on the market right now.  The only drawback? Asus and EVGA both have this card out now but they are priced at ~$800 or more.  Who has that much money to spend on a graphics card.  My Radeon HD 5750 will play most games out right now including Crysis 2 and others with no hiccups.  I think i'll stick with this card for awhile.

Also, I have a softmodded Xbox (you remember that old Mechassault exploit?) with XBMC on it.  The problem? I havent used it or updated it in like 5 or 6 years.  I think this weekend i'll be looking into updating it and using it to stream stuff to the T.V. again.  What do you use your old Xbox for? Do you have any other modded consoles.  I know the Wii can be modded and allow you to play homebrew games.  And just this year the PS3 was hacked to allow the same (this really pissed off Sony and i LOL'd).  What do you do with your old consoles?

Will be posting to tell you how Minecraft turns out later as well as what I end up doing with the Xbox so check back later this week for this update.

  5. Totally never figured it out and found it a complete waste of time. But don't listen to me, my favourite game is Ratchet and Clank 3 on the PS2.

  7. I don't play it that much but I do love the game. If that sounds weird, it's just because I watch the let's plays on youtube, they can be more entertaining than the game itself.

  12. I play a lot of MC... It's the best damn game on the planet. Next to Pokemon, of course. The two are equal in finess.

  13. Meh. I find minecraft to be alright. It's sort of addicting once you get into it. I've been playing Rift lately, and I've been enjoying the crap out of that.

  14. Minecraft was alright for me, but not the digital crack everyone else makes it out to be.

  17. Man...I just want someone to tell me if minecraft is anything OTHER than just building stuff. I mean, that is fun and all, but it got boring pretty quick for me...

  19. This game is a phenom right now. Not really something I could ever get that into though. Far too creative.

  20. I decided to try it after a couple close friends of mine downloaded it. Honestly I couldn't get into it, and I can't see why some people actually pay for it (lolpirated it).

  21. Its weird how memory intensive minecraft can be- but still a fun time building castles and dungeons.

  22. My old consoles occupy the important position of taking up shelf space.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Some times i like minecraft, some times i hate it, depends on my mood i guess

  27. Can't help thinking that it would end up being another WoW and my friends would have to stage an intervention (AGAIN!).

  28. I like minecraft, it stimulates your creativity. If I had kids, it's the sort of game I'd give them

    ReplyDelete
  29. Did you ever play with Legos as a kid? Did you have a younger sibling that came out and stomped on something you spent a lot of time on?

    Yeah, it's kind of like that, though it's amazingly fun. I recommend you buy it, find a good server, and build something awesome. There are a lot of videos online of people building epic stuff.

    It's a high playtime/enjoyment per dollar purchase. It lives up to the hype.
