For all the people complaining about Mojang releasing new games - let me say that they need to release new games to keep generating profit to keep the studio alive. More games = more profit = more development of Minecraft.
Cobalt Impression so far:
Overall rating: 4/5 (considering it is in alpha)
It is a little bit discouraging at first, the controls take some time to get used to but once you do it is very fun. Its the type of game where you have to be on your toes the entire time. Let down your guard and you are toast. With an added map editor, multiplayer and more content it could be very successful.
looks like a cheap little big planet knock off. which in turn is a knock off of sonic. which in turn is a knock off of mario. all side scrolling games are mario knock offs
Mario was a game similar to Donkey Kong. Both came out at around the same year and are thought to be the first true platform games. Platform games that came later aren't really knock-offs, they're different games of the same genre that were inspired by the popularity of these early games. Most of these games wouldn't have really taken off if it wasn't for the advancements in graphics hardware that enabled support for smooth scrolling sideways levels.
Right now on the front page this is the only game other than Minecraft being 'advertised'. And remember that while this is a Minecraft forum; it is still under Curse. So if Curse wants to put out an update video that has content about Minecraft (and maybe Diablo II or WOW) then who are you to tell them not to. This forum and its announcement page is for information pertaining to Minecraft; and its competition and Mojang's other games definitely meet this criteria.
"News and Announcements
Find all the latest news related to Minecraft here."
If the News section was for other game related content then WHY is it labeled sooo specifically? explain that.
Discuss everything from PC Games to Nintendo DS Games. Any games except Minecraft.
Why is ALL of this not placed in this section, we are shunted to use this section, and that is where I should have to go in order to see this garbage posted everywhere, not plastered on the front page of a MINECRAFT FORUM.
"who are you to tell them not to"
oh, I don't know, the customer? durr. are you that blind you idiotic substandard.
why the hell are you trying to tell me off like I can't make an observation post so I can have my voice heard? what you think just because Mojang can advertise here they should? you are pathetic. Cobalt isn't even a Mojang developed game, not Skyrim, not WoW, not Diablo III, not SW: TOR, so what the **** are they doing in the MINECRAFT NEWS SECTION?
if what I ask is too much; then **** this ****, I'm not going to waste my money on Mojang, I may only be one customer but I know for a fact that others feel the EXACT same way I do.
( I don't care if Curse owns this Forum, I don't care if Curse owns the Internet, just because Comcast owns my Modem does that mean I should see commercials on my Computer screen every-time I turn it on?? HELL NO!!!
well everyone it was a nice run, but Minecraft has officially SOLD OUT, there was a time where you could peacefully live in your little Minecraft world, but corporate greed and political agenda have hand in hand ruined another AMAZING program.
