    There is also a payload map on TF2

    Can't wait until SMP.
    Also, when it comes out, we have to make a GBAtemp server for anyone that plays it [​IMG]

    Could someone please give me a quick fillin as to what Minecraft is? I've seen a couple of people playing it on Steam (as a non-steam game) but i know nothing about it, and from the quick searching i did, i found almost no info (just referencing to other games, which i'm not familiar with, and their site give NO info on the game).

    Help me, Minecraft Players. You're my only hope.

    The Fur Side.
    I played the online version last night. (Was my first time!) It seems like some kind of world builder/destroyer. It kinda reminded me of LEGOs.

    It's like.... a first-person Dwarf Fortress (if you haven't played DF either, please do.).
    It's like...playing with LEGOs in 3D.
    It also has it's share of exploration. Personally I feel it has that classic Harvest Moon charm to it (work hard, enjoy).


    Really basically, you mine, and you craft. Hence the name. Check out a bunch of Youtube videos, play the REALLY REALLY OLD AND BARELY SIMILAR TO REAL MINECRAFT demo.

    Honestly, it's absolutely worth the price. This is indie gold.

    [EDIT]

    Compared to the "demo" version...the real "Alpha" version has crafting, more mobs, fluid dynamics, caves, infinite worlds (keep moving and it generates as you go), many types of resources, armor, weapons, tools, food, farming....and it goes on.

    Minecraft is a game in which you... it's not really easy to explain. You just play around, craft some stuff from ores you mine (hence the name), dig around, make a fortress, traps, etc. It's also used to make art. Yes, art. Like this:

    There's a huge player base, and Notch, the developer, has a blog. Minecraft is updated almost, if not daily.

    I made this! [​IMG] minecraftwin.jpg

    But....while the demo is basically "Creation Mode", it is far from the reality of the real thing. I cannot stress this enough, because by itself, the demo can also deter people from this awesome game. The demo REALLY is that old.

    Hmmm... I didn't quite like Creative at first, however, I tried out an Alpha version from a friend and almost immediately bought it after that.
    Alpha is just so much more fun than Creative. [​IMG]

    So, can i basically call this a stand-alone Garry's Mod?

    Also, no i haven't played DF either... it's a name i've known for a bit, but haven't settled into it because i hear it's highly addicting with a steep beginner's curve... and that's the kind of thing that i can lose my life to [​IMG]

    You could, but it's not so complicated and expanded. Crafting happens on a 3 by 3 grid. At the moment Notch is adding a powered minecart, it's useful for lollercoasters.

    Be sure to do it fast, when Minecraft reaches beta, which is next week, it'll cost 15 euro's, and when it's fully released it'll cost 20.

    Kickass. Then my timing is pretty dead on for this one. I'll (99% sure) be snagging this tomorrow [​IMG]

    Hell, as a matter of fact, Wife® might be into this too. Might have to snag two copies.

    Hadn't heard of Minecraft before.
    I'm definitely going to purchase it before the Beta. It looks fun!
