Hopefully this will silence all of the speculation.

Haha, what am I saying, this is the internet. How foolish of me.

It's nice to know we're getting 1.8 soon. As a Minecraft PC gamer, this update will make the game much more similar to the current pc verson.

I doubt it. What I'm gonna do is capture all the animals I can and not kill them until we can breed animals.

This is great, I was relativity bored of Minecraft before on Xbox. This will definitely lighten it up more with creative mode.

[b]10[/b] new discs in [b]1.8[/b]? I thought that [b]9[/b] discs were added in [b]1.9[/b].
There used to be a picture here, about mods I like. It was outdated, and keeping up with which mods are still updated is difficult. Also, go look at my album art on the Aether Soundtrack: http://emilevankriek...ther-soundtrack
