Spider Jockey

by May 20, 2013

Can we just, for one second stop, and talk about how stupid the Spiderjockey is? I mean, in a game with endless AWESOME “villains”–Endermen, Ender Dragon, Creepers; these iconic characters known to be evil–we have “Spiderjockey”. Really? I mean, it just doesn’t invoke fear or anything; it’s just…kinda dopey lookin’. I see a spider at […]

Save The Pixels!

by May 16, 2013

I’ve heard a lot of arguments about video games affecting real life–for example the lunatics who think video game violence cause real life violence–and how it makes people think or feel. For example, I’ve heard a lot of negative things obviously, like the one I’ve stated above or the idea that because women are represented […]

But What Comes Next?

The End…Of My Rope

by May 6, 2013

So my friend Matt and I finally loaded up The End. Well, first we had to find an End Portal, so we started a new game and started to dig…and everything was a dead end with monster spawners. It was the worst world ever. I mean, had we just been playing for resources, we would’ve […]

Hunger Games

by May 5, 2013

Anyone out there ever seen The Hunger Games? Show of hands? Kidding, this is the Internet… Anyways, the Hunger Games in Minecraft are pretty awesome. Rules are basic: survive, and don’t destroy blocks (except mushrooms). There are several hidden chests (well, some are pretty obvious) around the map with random gear. The trick is that […]
