UG Minecraft Thread v2.3 (additional releases unnecessary)
Welcome to the UG Minecraft thread!
We have a
What is minecraft, you might ask? Minecraft is a sandbox construction game, inspired by Infiniminer, Dwarf Fortress and Dungeon Keeper, created by Markus Persson, the founder of Mojang AB. The game involves players creating and destroying various types of blocks in a three dimensional environment. The player takes an avatar that can destroy or create blocks, forming fantastic structures, creations and artwork across the various multiplayer servers in multiple game modes. (Minecraft Wiki)
It's lots of fun, and even more so with other people! There are currently four versions of the game (and two for PC): The regular version, which costs €19.99 (which works out to be around £17.21/$26.90) is the one that we host a server for. They're also working on a free demo, but that has not currently been released. Then there's Minecraft Classic, a free older version of the game which doesn't have many features that the regular version has but is worth checking out to get a feel for the game. In addition, they have released versions for Minecraft for both Xbox Live Arcade and mobile devices ( iOS ,Android )

New thread already?
Crits on Minecraft for xbox anyone?
This gaem luks like is for 12 y/o girls ist not br00t4x like COD COD 4 LIF3$!!!!
Just getting back into this game. Trying to stick to one world for a lengthy period of time. Can't play smp though as I'm still using a pirated launcher(no intention on ever buying the game, come at me).
It's an older version (beta 1.6) that looks fun to play splitscreen with friends, does have some pretty bad lighting, and will be harder due to playing with a controller rather than a mouse.
Don't know yet if the updates will cost money, but if they do, minecraft on 360 can **** itself.
Meh, I prefer console games than PC games. I might as well get it.
Great thread. Thanks OP.
I meant to put more pros in that post than I did :p:
It does look really fun.
Except for the finite worlds, but I guess with Xbox technology it can't really be helped.
furst page post
