...Minecraft.

Anyone else here besides me absolutely get drawn into this game? I mean, seriously. The game only hit beta about a month ago and already it just hit one million units sold, won a number of awards, and has a gigantic community... for a game that isn't even finished.

And for those that don't know what Minecraft is, let's just put it this way. It's like Lego in digital form, except with finding resources (mainly within caves) and trying to stay alive mixed into it.

Nowadays I only play it when I feel bored or just want to explore my singleplayer world. There is a multiplayer server I go to regularly but as they've been having problems with the server, I haven't played as much as I've been meaning to.

Other than that I won't say much unless someone wants to talk about it.

That explains everything... Lindsay's hooked on WoW.

Lately I haven't played much but I've been trying to reconstruct the house seen at the end of this video:



This is what I've managed to do so far:

Lindsay, I could've sworn you dropped off the face of the planet! tongue.gif

On another note, I've been quite interested in the game, but I've been really too busy with life to play it. That and everytime I play I forget where I put my base.

I have a couple of friends who used to play (They're playing WoW right now tongue.gif) but I never really enjoyed the game. Feels to me that I could actually get my legos out instead and make something just as awesome in real life.

Except maybe the fact that gravity would work against me.

I can't see the enjoyment being to high, and if it does, lasting longer than 30 minutes. sad.gif
But, I've seen some funny videos. Creepers, gotta love them.
