my question is... since the PC version is $26.95, how much will the Xbox version be?

can someone explain to me how this game is fun. I played the demo and it seemed like the worst and most boring game I have ever played. Build a table and eat a pig? What is the big deal about this game?

The best way to play is with your friends. It's a cool get together and just build whatever type of game. It is pretty lame if you play it by yourself though. I find it decent, but with the games coming out in the next few weeks, it will only see very little playing time after this Tuesday.

on some nights, my friends and I hang out in a party at the dashboard, just talking. people constantly dropping in and out and everyone saying hi. totally has a college dorm vibe.

hanging out in a minecraft world is a pretty cool idea.

Basically if you ever loved legos as a kid, thats minecraft. It's less of a game, and more of a interactive hobby it seems to me. Virtual legos.

the Enterprise was an amazing achievement.

but the guy kinda cheated in that he didn't build it within the game. he took the blueprints, did it in GIMP (the free equivalent to Photoshop), and then put the layers into the level editor.

"He used the plans created by Ed Whitefire, who was commissioned to create the original plans before being replaced by Mike Okuda. Whitefire's plans are available online, and Walker used those as a reference.

"I originally took all the decks from the Whitefire plans and layered them in Gimp. I then re-sized the plans to a 1 pixel = 1 meter scale." He then reduced each deck to a two-color bitmap exported as a layer, which he considers the most tedious part of the project. "After that, the level editor for Minecraft sucked up each layer and spit out what you saw. When I wandered around on the ship for the first time, I was so pleased it worked out so well."


still a long tedious effort but not the monumental effort it would've taken if he did it in the game.

There's a big difference between this and real Legos - real Legos would actually be fun to play with.

I'm a first time crafter and I find this game fun and relaxing.

Question...

I finished the little house from the tutorial and every time I try to sleep through the night monsters wake me from my sleep. The house is complete and well lit. Not sure what I am doing wrong???

It happens in any bed it seems. I only have the demo for now but I have also woken up to a bunch of creepers right outside the house.

I just wish the demo wasn't timed, you really can't do anything in such a short period of time.

Played this for a few hours last night with a bud online.

It was relaxing, hilarious, and fun. We built an entrance in to the side of a cliff and were trying to build a massive underground fortress. I walked outside at daylight and a creeper was just sitting there waiting to splode our creation. We laughed pretty hard when it blew a massive hole in the side of our "fortress" and we both got killed.

I see myself getting a ton of enjoyment out of this one. Sure, it's not for everyone, but all I see when I play it is almost unlimited potential. If they can continue to support and update like they have on the pc, this is going to be great.

I wish there was a way to turn off (or make transparent) the row of boxes below your health. I have a plasma tv that I use for only movies/gaming and I know the boxes will cause image retention, and possibly worse if I were to play for a long time. I've only been playing the demo of the game and as far as I can tell you can't make any adjustments to the boxes, unless the full version has more options.

The exterior should to be lit up as well and make sure no MOB can spawn within 2 blocks of your bed (that is what wakes you up). Best bet is a 6 x 5 interior house (or bigger) with your bed in the middle.

Some quick math: Over a million units sold at $20 a pop = more than $20 million in revenue generated by Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition… in under a week.

More Minecraft metrics from Microsoft's Major Nelson:

Total Online Hours: 5.2M

Multiplayer sessions: 4M

Total Multiplayer gaming hours: 2.4M

The game became the fastest-selling XBLA game ever mere hours following its March 9 release

While not everyone's cup of tea, just goes to show you how successful a game that gets something right for many can be.

There was quite an amount of rage. I for one don't blame em either. That being said. I'm surprised so many people still don't have an HDTV. Not even 720...

No, really there was not that much rage. The only thing affected is split-screen. Regular play works fine on an SD display, as does Live play.

Don't pretend like the problem is bigger than it actually is.

If the guy can't even afford a $5 cable to hook his 360 to a PC monitor, he shouldn't be gaming. I have a VGA cable, an HDMI cable, and a HDMI-to-DVI cable for various monitors.

I don't think there was much outrage. But suddenly every 360 owner had an SDTV and tried to get a refund (and was successful depending on the CSR). Gamers always looking to take advantage of the system.

I thought most didn't get a refund? That's how the article I had read came to play. Maybe the over dramatized it.

Take a photo when done, hopefully I can get a starting idea. Once I am done with my house I thought about doing one.

I think it is more likely that people don't have a monitor to hook up to their $5 cable. I would imagine that a lot of 360 users are kids who have a console hooked up to some old family TV in their bedroom.

I find it awfully hard to imagine a household that doesn't even have a PC.

If it was 1985, yeah, that would make sense.
