I was also kinda disapppointed with the amount of ads. But hey, it's free (kinda), and we get a free account and a free limited edition xbox cape. Also, the bag itself is also really cool. And not to mention the PC cape! It's not in the bag, but technically it is a goodie. So yeah, I'm happy with my goodies
I'm really happy with my cape too but when you compare this to the Minecon 2011 creeper bag (which also had PC cape) this is a ton of ads.
Concerning the Minecraft code, it's cool, I agree, but not very exciting (not as exciting as a mousepad or a soda) because if you go to minecon you obviously have an account
And for the X360 cape I'll start the bid at 20€ on Ebay and see where this goes.
Im really liking minecon so far but I agree with the goodie bags... they were kind of disappointing? There were no real exclusive goodies or something really fun in them... just a bunch of flyers which were available throughout the booths anyway.....
I was kind of hoping for a little figurine or mini foam sword / pick axe lol i dunno just something fun which i can keep as a gift?
"Last year they add special soda bottles ,mousepads and little paper characters." - definitely sounds way cooler!!
But other than that it has been great. The 'party' tonight in disney studios was so cool, the que times were 5 minutes at most!! They also brought out the characters and live band (all from 8pm - 12.30am!!)
I am looking to for someone who got the free gift code and is not going to use it. So I can activate my little sisters account so she can play on her own account and Im not having to be scared to be banned the next day.
From my experience there, quite a large amount of the participants at Minecon were parents accompanying children who hadn't yet played Minecraft themselves. What better way to reward that sort of parenting than with a free copy of the game their children love so much? Agreed it was a little disappointing, but I'm perfectly happy with it and found some companies/ websites that interest me.
Incidentally, does anyone have any experience with Minetoys or Shapeways? Very interested in getting a little OllieRaiden figurine for my windowsill or somewhere.
Let me put it this way, if you think the minecraft gift card is disappointing or anybody else does, I would be perfectly willing to accept the code because believe it or not, I really cannot afford the measly $25 dollars to pay for one myself.
I never said the gift code was disappointing, I used it (to create a secondary account) and it's really cool.
And yeah, Mojang tried to make Minecon more epic this year so maybe it's a good thing we didn't have much things in the bag.
What makes me angry is the huge amount of ads in the bag.
