Welcome to the blogging

I suppose, having had this page up for 5 days now, that I would perhaps do well to make my first (real) post. It's been at the back of my mind as I've gone about my business of late and, suffice to say, the niggling voice has by now niggled loud enough to get me galvanised into at least a semblance of action.
Before we begin though, I must make it clear that I'm making no promises here. I may post at any time, with whatever frequency seems necessary and on whatever topic floats to the fore of my mind when it comes time to get typing again. Not that I would expect anyone on this planet to take any affront over what these ramblings end up (or do not) consisting of, but just as a little heads up.

 
Now to suck Minecraft's Dick.

A couple of towers out of the many I've built, linked with glass. No real reason. Good way to view scenery though.


Picked this game up not so long ago, a fortnight perhaps, on the good advice of a few hundred people. Allow me to add my voice to theirs; If you've not played this shit, please take the time and the - what, 15 dollars - to find out why you should have bought it weeks ago.
It's been said, on occasion, that the graphics are shoddy. That the monsters are mostly just a bunch of squares that could have starred in atari classics of the day. Even that there's no goal in the game and playing it is  therefore pointless and boring. I have to say, if you feel this way even after trying the game, spending the night cowed in a 4x4 box praying that zombies can't dig through dirt, then games in general might not be for you.
Simplicity is beauty, of it's own sort. All it takes is the smallest amount of creative input, just the tiniest fraction of thought and you can play this game until your ears bleed and you forget what the real world even looked like to begin with. Flood valleys, plant acres of forest deep underground and surrounds your floating castles with moats of lava. Or just doss around shearing sheep and stabbing pigs, there's no-one judging you here. But please, just try the damn game.

Shine on you crazy diamonds.

  1. Protip on Minecraft: When mining, build a shaft with a glass roof and go straight downwards. Thisway you will have daylight even when you are at the bottom of the world.
