Wednesday November 23 - Home is where the heart is


I am sick to death of living in this stupid cave - and I need a new home in Minecraft, too! ZING. I'll be here all week. But, yeah, time to construct a basic house. I'm going to make the walls out of Cobblestone, with some nice wooden edges and a lovely roof made out of steps. Steps are the only thing in this game I know that look a bit like a roof. Alright! How hard can this be?


Building a house is bloody hard work. I've barely laid the foundations. I've also had to burrow underground to mine enough stone and stuff to make this house, and Creepers live underground. Do all houses get built this way? Right now I basically have a hole in the ground as my foundations.


What a thing of beauty! I'm in love; the same kind of love a parent must feel when they look into the eyes of a newborn child. Look at it! DOORS. WINDOWS. ROOF. LIGHTS. A NICE LITTLE STAIRCASE. I imagine there's never been a more elaborate and beautiful construction produced in the entire history of Minecraft.

I'm not going to make something better than that today, so I think I'm going to log off and get some actual work done.


Just been telling my girlfriend about the majesty of my beautiful abode and she said she was actually ashamed of me. She also said she'd rather walk in on me having an affair rather than walking in on me playing Minecraft.


Hopefully my girlfriend doesn't come downstairs now because, boy, will she be disappointed. I found a source of iron in my underground caves. IRON.

Sounds like my day job.

I'm off to work in my underground wheat cave.

If you ever wanted to be bored to death with a game, look no further.

I still won't play Minecraft, but heh, I enjoyed the article, was a good read. Particular love the bit where Pearson got pissed off. Should turn this into some kinda video show where you play new games and annoy the crap outta everyone else at VG.

Fantastic feature Martin. I'm looking forward to the bias towards features this holiday as the game releases dry up. You guys do my favourite articles about random and interesting stuff.
