Minecraft is a game about breaking and placing blocks. At first, people built structures to protect against nocturnal monsters, but as the game grew players worked together to create wonderful, imaginative things.

It can also be about adventuring with friends or watching the sun rise over a blocky ocean. It’s pretty. Brave players battle terrible things in The Nether, which is more scary than pretty. You can also visit a land of mushrooms if it sounds more like your cup of tea.

I want someone to remake The Dark Knight in Minecraft. Not just the trailer, the whole film. Its cool, I can wait.

Minecraft fans are notorious for making crazy things in game and this recent fan project is no exception. You need to watch the first 5 minutes of Star Wars rendered in Minecraft.


"Minecraft: The Story of Mojang is the second feature from game culture archivists 2 Player Productions... This feature-length documentary follows the young company over the course of its first year as their profile expands across the world stage and into the homes of millions of gamers. Featuring insights from industry icons (Peter Molyneux, Tim Schafer), journalists (Geoff Keighley, Stephen Totilo), tastemakers (Gabe & Tycho of Penny Arcade), and players profoundly impacted by the game (Yogscast, The Shaft, Minecraft Teacher), the film serves as a time capsule for one of this generation's most unorthodox success stories."

Like many of you, when my Holiday time off comes around I plan on playing some games. Minecraft will no doubt be played and it seems that Mojang will be updating it so you can ring in the New Year Minecraft Style.... Minecraft Style.... OP, OP, OP!

From the Mojangs mouth:

"What’s this? This doesn’t sound like a redstone update at all!”, you say. “Indeed,” we say. Thing is, we* suddenly decided we wanted to make sure that you have fireworks for New Year’s Eve, so we’re working in several parallel branches of the code now. One is for the 1.5 “Redstone Update,” and one is now for a 1.4.6 patch update. This update will be out before Christmas, and 1.5 will wait until January... Read All

I know many of you have little happiness in your lives. You come here for a few things and I imagine my life changing Minecraft videos are part of the reason. I heard your calls over the vast sea of the Internet bits and am gifting to you my latest video.

Oh right the video is also fairly short, clocking a bit over 5 minutes.

I was inspired to build a Treehouse in one of the taller trees on my farm. I am proud of my Minecraft creations thinking I am doing some impressive work until I went to a few Minecraft servers and my hopes of achieving Minecraft greatness were dashed. I seem to have less time than some Minecraft pros.

That said, existing in a world like Minecraft... Read All

I hate to say. This is the worst random map of Minecraft that I've ever played. The island is tiny. Super tiny, it is literally small enough to walk across all directions without traveling a whole day. I died 6 times and got 3 dogs killed because resources (food) are hard to come by, and it is ultra depressing because animals do not spawn very often. I actually hate this world. I have recorded every play through on this island. I do not know how much longer I will because this place drives me nuts. Enjoy

This is a quick ~7 minute video showing off my minecraft world. I've only been playing on the world for a few hours so there isn't much to show. I just wanted to document the changes from beginning to end of my minecraft world. Plus, this will help me start my youtube channel off. I've been really wanting to start recording LP's and such for youtube but haven't been able to get it up and running. Mainly because I have been displeased with a lot of the recordings I have done.

My voice is kinda quiet in the video, my apologizes. I forgot to increase my mic before starting. So yeah, listen carefully or just turn the volume up.

Please leave some critique. I would really... Read All

I just created a new Let's Play video. The idea of this one was that I would pick a direction in my first Minecraft world to explore. Part of the awesomeness of Minecraft is how open and expansive the worlds are. Its impressive.

I wasn't sure how long I would be out exploring, but the video spans two Minecraft days. Since I don't mark my path, I return to my house by getting killed.


So this is my first foray into the world of Lets Play videos and I decided to make it of my first Minecraft World. I take you through my amazing house, Sheep and Cattle Farm as well as my Wheat fields.

Having to spend time talking and playing didn't leave much of my attention paid to the creeper advancing on me. As I watch the video again he is plainly there and because I didn't notice him, blows me up handily.

That said, I plan on doing more of these and its a great way to share what I have been playing a bit of.

I picked up Minecraft a few days ago. Being that I was entirely behind the curve on this game I decided to hold out a little longer. I figured with each patch the game would just get better and better so waiting would be good. Since I have no earlier Minecraft to compare it to all I can say is the game was worth the wait. Minecraft is fantastic.

First off the game just feels right. The movement is right, the mining is right and the graphics are beautiful. Climbing up on top of a mountain for the first time and looking out is really incredible. After being in continuous development for a few years now, it makes sense the game is as polished as it is.

I am playing survival... Read All
