    posted a message on How to Survive the Nether
    So, I have found that most people have trouble exploring the nether to get their blaze rods and such, so I am here to advise you on how to survive the nether!

    Rule 1: NEVER and I say NEVER bring any diamonds to the Nether. If you were wearing diamond armor and you died, well you can say goodbye to it because it either burned in lava/fire OR it survived but it's too far away for you to retrieve.
    Just don't do it, it will save you a lot of grief.

    Rule 2:Bring a bow and a fishing rod. If your bow cant reach a dastardly ghast, the fishing rod can. Yank that sucker towards you and slice/shoot it.

    Rule 3: Pigmen are nice! Or not. Just don't attack them or they will rape you. Also, don't let the ghasts shoot them, they will blame it on you!

    Rule 4: Stay away from lava! Where there is lava, there's death, and where there's lava death, there's destroyed items. And even if you do stay away from lava, all that netherrack fire will burn the items.

    Rule 5: Bring cobblestone! Cobblestone wont get blown up by ghasts or set on fire like netherrack, so placing cobblestone everywhere will help you reach your goal!

    Rule 6: Finding a fortress. I know finding a nether fortress can be hard, and it may make you want to restart your world if it isnt the first thing you see, but they are possible to find! If you have Rei's/Zan's minimap mod, mark your portal as a waypoint so you dont lose it. And when you find that fortress, mark it too! (Note: If there is a lot of lava standing between you and the nether fortress, it's probably a bad idea.)

    Rule 7: Killing the blazes. We all know that you NEED blaze rods from blazes to beat the game, but killing blazes can be hard! Before you attempt to kill any blazes, turn on peaceful and destroy most of the blaze spawners so that there is only one left. This will minimize the chance of you being buttraped by flaming flying gold things.

    That is all I have for now, +1's and comments are appreciated. If you have anything else that you think I should add, send me a comment!

    It's advertisement, mostly.

    Activision has millions and millions to spend on an ad campaign for their rehashed game. The only significant change in Call of Duty games is the art on the box. People then buy the game because they saw a shiny trailer or commercial that bears no resemblance to the actual game. For the record, if you look past the fact that CoD has annual releases nowadays, the games are pretty solid, especially in the multiplayer department. but as long as people keep buying new CoD games, more will come to keep up with the demand. capitalism can be quite sad sometimes.

    I'm sure if Mojang had the budget to create trailers, TV commercials and have big posters on billboards everywhere people would buy it. It is well known people will buy products purely based on the advertisements they've seen. they don't need to though because Minecraft is doing great, has an active community and lots of satisfied players.

    You are right about people judging a game by its graphics, which is very dumb thing to do, but it's just the way it is. it's mostly the younger generation, with exceptions, that believe graphics make a game. graphics are considered important though. While I never put graphics before gameplay, story or atmosphere, I do expect AAA games to look at least decent because there really is no reason for those not to look good.

    I can also see why it's very difficult for some people to see past the graphics considering they can make a big difference for people to really get into the game. Graphics improve all the time, and when people see something that looks significantly worse, they simply can not get past that because they are used to having much better. It's a bit like watching television shows or films in HD quality, only to then watch an older series or film in standard definition. It takes some getting used to.

    That being said, graphics should never come before gameplay, story or atmosphere and I wish some people who just play CoD or similar games would give minecraft or any other not graphically impressive game a try. Not just for five minutes but for an hour or two so they can at least come up with some good arguments if they still don't like it.
    It's the same thing with your friend really, he can't get past the graphics and even if he could, Terraria is difficult to get into.

    You can't decide for people what to play though, and if they don't want to play a game for whatever reason, so be it. They're the ones missing out, or not. We don't know because they never tried the game and were not able to form a proper opinion about it.

    I know I was arguing with you in another thread, but I completely agree with you here.
    I just wanna **** all over the people who say graphics is all that matters.
    For example, my dad and other brother though that ****ing Roblox was better than Minecraft because of the graphics.
    Whoever the **** thought Roblox was a good idea can go throw themselves in a ****ing torture chamber and die the slowest most painful death ever.

    posted a message on whats bad about minecraft?
    Quote from exe626

    a good number of reasons, really:

    it's a survival game that has not a single challenging aspect
    you can 'complete' the game in a few hours with ease
    there's no real replay-ability, only another play through
    little variety when it comes to the different resources, and armour/tools have no balance what-so-ever
    limited to only a sword and bow, a 3rd combat style would be beneficial
    there's no bonus or negative when using a heavy set of armour. eg: archers don't typically dress up like knights when they're going out hunting
    still can only be male
    still no world-size options to help with lag
    nether is still mostly useless
    sky city is still unreleased
    no more animal shaped hills and mountains
    the credits sucked
    dungeons are still lame
    mining is ridiculously easy
    ocean is still empty
    potion system is lame
    mod api still isn't released
    smp is still glitchy as hell
    relies heavily on mods for content

    wtb> active development team

    Someone forgot their tampons this morning.
    And their coffee.
    And their cornflakes had crap in them.
    And there were bees in their underwear.
    And someone put an asshat on their head.

    The only viable argument you had was that mod api still isn't released.
    It is challenging, you can't kill the enderdragon with ease in 'a few hours', there is tons of replayability, every world is different, the resources may lack variation, but have you ever tried to get full diamond armor, every diamond tool, and an enchantment table? Practically impossible, unless you have xray. There is a third combat style: fists. There's even a fourth one: redstone contraptions & dispensers. You do START as male, but you can change the skin to whatever the hell you want unless you are EXTREMELY retarded. World size doesnt account for lag, you only load a few chunks at a time, not the whole world. Nether is no-where near useless, there is blaze rods for potions and eyes of ender (required to beat the game) then there is the pigs that drop you nice gold nuggets, magma cubes that drop magma cream, and ghasts that drop ghast tears and gunpowder. Noone on the Mojang team ever said ANYTHING about 'sky city'. Since when were there animal shaped mountains? The credits sucked, but their credits, they all suck, from every game, ever. If dungeons are 'lame' then how do you suppose people make mob farms? With pumpkins? Mining is nowhere near easy, there is lava, mobs, cave spiders, diamonds are extremely hard to find. The ocean is the ocean, what do you want in it? Pumpkin juice? Potions aren't lame, clearly you lack sophistication required to make them. Jeb is working on the mod api, meanwhile get off your retarded ass and learn how to install mods the old-fashioned way. It's not that difficult. Sure SMP is glitchy, look at any multiplayer game, they have glitches too. Sure, mods DO add a lot of content, but let me ask you, have you completed EVERY achievement in the game? If not, you have not explored the original game's entire content.

    And before anyone else starts bitching, let me ask this:
    Could YOU make a better game? I doubt it.

    posted a message on 2 Diamonds = A lot of iron
    One diamond sword has 1562 uses.
    And iron golem takes 15 hits to kill with a diamond sword.
    Iron golems drop 3-5 iron ingots.

    1562 divided by 15= about 104.
    104x4 (on average) =416
    416 divided by 2 = 208
    Therefore, one diamond equals about 208 iron.

    All you need is a sword and a village that spawns golems.

    Happy hunting!

    I once got banned from a no rules PvP server for griefing my own house. I didn't even do it either, it was creepers and endermen.....

    I remember those two being the most epic. Remember how there was a challenge to see if you could survive in the cave without coming back up to the surface?

    Sir, your Fire Emblem avatar just made my day.

    Anyways, yeah those seeds were pretty awesome. I wish my dumb little bro never updated to 1.8... :-(

    posted a message on The Creeper
    It was a normal day in the town of Meincreft. I was walking through the Lexys Tunnel when a strange red block fell into my mouth. I woke up. Where was I? I was in a small box. No, it was a coffin. I tryed to open it, but I had no arms, only four feet. My skin was green, and I no longer spoke English. I tried to make noise so someone could get me out, but I could only make a strange hisssssss. I hissed and hissed and someone opened the coffin. It was my girlfriend, Maria. I tried to hug her but she ran away and came back with a sword. I was something different now, something I could not explain. Nobody wanted me there, I ran away. I ran and ran until I didnt know where I was. Day turned to night, and monsters started coming out. I ran to find shelter, but the monsters did not attack. I met a strange person, with long legs and arms and black skin. His eyes were purple. He said he was something called an enderman. Strangely, we could understand each other even though we were different species."What am I?" I asked him. He told me he had seen people like me before, and that they viciously exploded upon contact with another living being. I did not want to be this person. I hung around with enderman and lived in his hut he made out of random materials that he picked up. We lived together for a long time, supporting each other in times of difficulty. One lovely afternoon, a human came around, holding a torch and a sword of iron. It was Maria! She wanted to kill us. I wished I could tell her that it was me, her lovely boyfriend. She knocked down the door thrusting her sword."Run enderman, run!" I shouted. He did as I said, escaping into the grassy plains. "Goodbye Maria. Goodbye enderman. Goodbye world." I exploded, killing Maria and saving enderman's life. In heaven, I reincarnated as a human, as did Maria. I told her what had happened, she thought I was telling some cruel joke. She was not the person I remembered, we did not talk much in heaven. I wished I hadn't been turned into such a vicious green monster and lived a normal life. It was a sad existence, even in heaven. I wished to just be dead, not living in heaven or any other place. I asked God for this and he ended my life as an angel.

    So how was that for you? I was bored, I don't care if you liked it or not.
    Comment please!
