Minecraft - Rant of the Week

Rant of the Week


About the Game:

Minecraft is a sandbox indie game originally created by Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Persson and later developed and published by Mojang. It was publicly released for the PC on May 17, 2009, as a developmental alpha version and, after many gradual updates, was published as a full release version on November 18, 2011. A version for Android was released a month earlier on October 7, and an iOS version was released on November 17, 2011. On May 9, 2012, the game was released on Xbox 360 as an Xbox Live Arcade game, co-developed by 4J Studios. All versions of Minecraft receive frequent updates.

The creative and building aspects of Minecraft allow players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, gathering resources, crafting and combat. Gameplay in its commercial release has two principal modes: survival, which requires players to acquire resources and maintain their health and hunger; and creative, where players have an unlimited supply of resources, the ability to fly, and no health or hunger. A third gameplay mode named hardcore is the same as survival, differing only in difficulty; it is set to hardest setting and respawning is disabled, forcing players to delete their worlds upon death.

Minecraft received five awards from the 2011 Game Developers Conference: it was awarded the Innovation Award, Best Downloadable Game Award, and the Best Debut Game Award from the Game Developers Choice Awards; and the Audience Award, as well as the Seumas McNally Grand Prize, from the Independent Games Festival in 2011. In 2012, Minecraft was awarded a Golden Joystick Award in the category Best Downloadable Game. As of November 12, 2012 the game has sold over eight million copies on PC and over eleven million copies across all platforms.

My notes/commentary:

Back to my minecraft commentary...

I got sooooo addicted to this game after I knew my boyfriend played it.
After a while, I thought, "Hmm... Why don't I go back and play with him?"
So I did and now this is why I'm ranting about it.

People hate this game sooo much because of the graphics.... Hello people!
That's the point of the game!! The point of minecraft is the bad graphics and the "boxy-ness"
Minecraft is a very popular game. Youtubers like PewDiePie, Tobuscus, etc. has played this game before.
That's why it's so famous. 

What is amazing about the multiplayer in Minecraft is you can make amazing games on there.
Like hunger games, Capture the Flag, etc. I think that is amazing.
VERY amazing.

Think about it. A game with bad graphics, about just building, and has no exact story line is one of the best games ever!
Now isn't that a really good achievement?! That is like a miracle!!!

Minecraft can be a pain in the ass when it just doesn't follow what you want. Like the wood looks to crappy and blah blah blah. But It can turn out really good at the end.

Let's talk about some really good Texture packs for this game.
I really enjoy the Inspiration by Tobiwank3nobi and DokuCraft - The Saga Continues
I currently only have those right now so yea ^_^'''

Okay. I don't wanna make this too long so....
CYA PUP MILITARY(what i call my un-exsistant fanbase)
