Survival - Coming Soon

Players of Minecraft - Pocket Edition have strongly expressed a desire for a Survival mode since the game was released, and while Mojang has commented in the past how the full PC title would likely never make it to the handheld, it seems that significant progress is nonetheless being made on a portable Survival Mode. Mojang's Daniel Kaplan had this to say:

Daniel Kaplan, Mojang said:

...we had an initial plan of making Minecraft – Pocket Edition more like Minecraft Creative. But alas we were wrong. We have read tons of comments and feedback and it seems like we made a huge mistake. You wanted monsters, resources, animals and more different blocks. This means that the initial code we had written didn’t exactly fit with the new plan where we wanted to add all the stuff you have been asking for. So we have been reorganizing, rewritten and changed the whole plan for Minecraft – Pocket Edition.

As noted above, Mojang plans to submit the new and improved Pocket Edition by February 8th, 2012, where it will go through processing and approval by the Android and iOS markets. Yes, it won't be long now before creepers can stalk us and chickens flee from us, no matter where we travel! In particular, there was emphasis that, while new creatures and blocks would be added, crafting will not be included in this update, stating that the UI needs some revision before adding such a comprehensive feature. However, they also enthusiastically added that updates should be more frequent (and feature-filled) going forward, so keep an eye out for them!

Holidays Over - For Some

As the holidays wrap up, most of us spent a significant amount of time putting our various decorations, new presents and such back into storage. However, one man's decoration refuses to be put away - and refuses to relinquish its Santa hat.

I'll spare you the litany of explosion puns that immediately come to mind.

Still, winter is in full swing, and not showing any signs of slowing down. As most of us are stuck inside from the cold, we find ourselves spending even more time playing Minecraft, and it brings to mind a question - what sort of awesome winter mods are out there? What are some of your favorites? Tell us about them!

This is gonna be so beast!
I'm sorry that you nice people in forum games don't see me as much as they used to (ok, let's face it. You don't hear from me at all). I've discovered other websites, forums and things to do and I just don't have any time to have fun with you guys. Hope I'll see you again!

If you have an iPad/iPod/iPhone with Minecraft on it... I really wouldn't get too excited. It will take a LONG, LONG, LONG time for Apple to approve this. You know what they are like. >_>
Of course, now I say this it will most likely take a day.

Fairly sure that Google doesn't pre-approve applications on the Android Market.

While waiting I recommend "BlockWorld" on Android platform. It has crafting, quests and monsters and is a lot of fun.

I live in Kentucky, United States so it's pretty warm here. About 40-50 degrees Fahrenheit which is warm to me. I went bike riding the day before yesterday, yesterday, and today. Basically it's like spring here!

Yay! Survival to pocket edition! (And it will be submitted the day after I go back to School....)

Oh, and by the way. It's only Winter one half of the world, it's summer down here where I live and I'm enjoying the lovely conditioned air.
