    Minecraft isn't even really a game.. it's just virtual LEGO's.. Unless you're still a 5 years old, I don't see how you can think this is fun.

    Sorry there are no guns, explosions, and cookie-cutter gameplay, but Legos are fun for people who actually like to think.

    There actually are explosions. :3

    Creepers explode, you can make TNT, etc. [​IMG]

    But Minecraft 1.8 actually makes it more of a game. Rather than just do what you please. You now have EXP, better fighting and more RPG-like elements.

    I'll play a puzzle game or Tetris if I want to do extensive thinking. It doesn't take any brains to mindlessly destroy and build blocks.

    To create complex structures with lego's, however, would require some creative thinking, but it's kind of sad when adults do it, or teenagers for that matter..

    Okay, the trailer is awesome, but, I'm sad to see such a unique and amazing game as Minecraft turn into a typical RPG. *sigh* Oh well, still looking forward to the other features 1.8 has to offer (villages, rivers, canyons, NPCs, Enderman).

    Sorry you don't see the appeal in the game, but after seeing what certain people have done with it I can definitely tell you it's more than "mindlessly destroying and building blocks". Then again, you're probably just trolling, so whatever.

    Topic at hand: 1.8 looks pretty awesome. Really excited to get to "re-discover" the game again. [​IMG]

    RPG? Lolno. Stuff like improved combat and experience points doesn't instantly make it a "typical RPG." If it were a typical RPG, there would be people with crazy outfits and hairdos, people with giant swords and guns, etc.

    You're thinking of a typical JRPG.

    No, jeb only said that was the best guess. He said [today] that they might have to push it back a day or so (Even though there wasn't a date set-in-stone anyways). Don't take estimates as exact dates.

    Well, still, adding RPG elements is one step away from making it a RPG. And the exp points are the worst thing added to Minecraft so far. Why? Well, because it gives Minecraft a actual goal, whether it's written in the data there, or you just want the challenge. You'll start haunting for exp points and when you reach the final level, you'll have accomplished that goal and you'll give up the game because you'll feel like there's nothing left for you to do until the next update (which you'll hope will have a bigger level cap and more quests).

    Minecraft was awesome because it didn't had a goal, and now that it has one, it doesn't feel like it did when it was infinitely open with no goal.

    It still has creative mode if you adore playing around with blocks and then playing the same thing over and over again.
