Thread: Minecraft

    Minecraft

    Since the old one got erased, I figure that this game deserves some more attention.

    http://minecraft.net/

    Minecraft is pretty much a sandbox game that takes place in the largest sandbox ever created. The game itself is a fun open-ended game where you can pretty much build and create pretty much anything in terms of structures. The goal is to basically survive the night, as that is when all the enemies spawn. Their goal: kill you. Your task, build shelter and survive their onslaught throughout the night. However, if you just want to build and create stuff, you can turn enemies off and just build to your hearts content.

    Here are a couple videos as to the gameplay, and the types of things that can be done there.

    A link from the Something Awful Forum giving a better explanation on the game.

    So, while it is $13 for what is effectively an Alpha/Beta of this game, it is more than worth that cost. For those who like to just futz around and create massive buildings from scratch, dig massive tunnel networks, ride boats up and down waterfalls, or just waste time exploring a randomly generated world in pixelated glory... this game is that and so much more! Plus, the price will go up once it's finished.

    I highly recommend this game for pretty much anyone who likes to create.

    Oh, multiplayer is improving every week Who here also enjoys playing this game?

    I bought the game but I can't get the fucking thing to run because Windows 7 is a piece of shit that installs Nvidia drivers for ATI cards and somehow blocks you from even installing the drivers you want. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

    Wow, turns out I'm like 9 kinds of retarded. I could have sworn that I had a ATI x1950 PRO card so I was installing the shit out of ATI drivers, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out why Windows 7 insisted on installing drivers for a Nvidia 9800 GTX+. Why would it choose such a specific driver incorrectly?!?! It's not like it's written in GIANT LETTERS on the video card.

    Yeah, so I'll try installing the real Nvidia drivers tonight and see what happens. Sigh.
