Minecraft: Now I get it.

Post by MysticJhn » Thu Oct 16, 2014 6:39 pm

For the few years it's been out, I had no realy interest in Minecraft.
I didn't think it was so much a bad game, but it seemed rather boring to me.

Well, after getting addicted to watching Minecraft videos on YouTube,
I went ahead and made the mistake of downloading the demo.
I know they weren't using the standard version considering how the videos went,
but I had to try it for myself, I could always delete it if need be.

Sure enough, I'm now hooked on this stupid demo.
Sadly, it only lasts 5 in-game days (1 hour 40 minutes in real time) and then you must reset it.
After a reset, it deletes everything you built, and it's the same terrain every time.

However, I need more.
Sadly, I don't have $30 in a format I can spend online, so I'm stuck on the demo.
I have managed to build some nice buildings, though, and found all the standard ores I think, including the Laspis Lazuli.

My most recent expedition resulted in this nice tower.

It has a nice spiral staircase inside that leads up to a wood floor with a glass ceiling.
Managed to decorate it with redstone torches.
That tree next to it was planted by me as well. :)

Reminds me of playing minecraft classic in browser, where you don't even have tools and if you close the browser all your work is lost.

Yeah, I probably would have done more to it if I could, but with limited
time it was the best I could do.

Luckily I had infinite cobblestone to play with.
lol, That mine you see in front of the tower if you look closely was loaded with it.
I had so many piles of 64 cobblestone.
Given more time, I could have expaned that to a castle. :mrgreen:

It's a shame I don't have some of my older screenshots back from 2013. Those would tell you how far carried away you can get playing Minecraft. I think I've logged a good 3k hours on minecraft without modpacks.

This allows you to play for free. You can't do anything online, and no custom skins or anything, but this should be helpful for what you are looking for.
The best part is, it saves your demo world. Have fun.

Yeah, I know you did. :lol:

I am finally playing a full version of it now.
I had downloaded the PS3 demo 2 days ago to show my brother.
Well fast forward to today, he decided to go ahead and buy it. :lol:

We put in SOOO many hours in some 2 player.
He went to bed and I wound up playing another hour and a half in my own world. :lol:

You can buy the game from EB games or something like. Don't have to get it online. Just saying. I have clocked up my fair share of this game, and mystic, watch your life get wasted away.

Well we already have it on PS3 now, but thanks.

And I'm not too worried about my life getting wasted away.
I have the spare hours.

The game is fun for a while, but it gets boring pretty quickly.

Pssst, a YCG server seems like a good idea.

Ah, but that wasn't a YCG server, that was a server run by P3Z for our friends.
