(first of this is not a review, just me rambling how much i like the game)
minecraft. ah yes. what a wonderful game. i first heard about it a little over a month ago. i checked the site out, saw some youtube videos (check out seananers minecraft videos: here), and figured what the heck, for twelve bucks i'll buy the game. i became instantly obsessed. unfortunately i had to put it aside for a long time but just a few days ago i got back into it. the easiest way to explain it is that you gather resources by day and survive during the night all while exploring a never ending randomly generated landscape. its not for everyone but definitely is a game that will get you hooked and not want to stop playing. the graphics are, well, horrible. but its a throw back to the old days of blocky 3d video games which makes it even cooler. check it out!
