Minecraft 1.4 and my plans

Well Minecraft 1.4 has made it out into live, Loving the wolves! I've just started a new world and will start posting my sole journey in the world of Minecraft, I'm trying to make a fun and exciting world and really be creative so any suggestions would be welcome.

Hopefully I'll have a new post up tomorrow detailing what I've done so far as I've already started crafting my world and hollowing out a mountain base but I want to expand and truly be 'epic'.

Anyway here is a list of the latest patch notes, the achievements and statistics coming soon do look promising:

* Added tameable wolves
* Added cookies
* Sleeping in a bed now resets your spawn position
* New Minecraft logo
* Holding shift while climbing will hang on to the ladder
* Spiders will no longer trample crops
* Lots and lots of infrastructure for Statistics lists and Achievements

Crysis 2 Thoughts

My first blog post,

I have just completed Crysis 2 and have a couple of thoughts about the game. Yes it really isn't as graphically intense as its predecessor but what it offers is a continuation of the unique gameplay that the franchise offers. I really enjoyed that Crytek has decided against buying into the whole "play the game via cutscenes" approach that most development studios tend to do these days.

The end of the game really leaves a huge door open for future developments in the franchise in a number of new and exciting settings which is something I'm looking forward to a hell of a lot, roll on the future of Crysis 2.

The multiplayer has gone the way of Call of Duty, in as much as it now has classes and a leveling system similar to it, however the gameplay is still incredibly unique in itself for an online experience and something you can't get from any other game. Hopefully I can share more thoughts about the game as I go through it online.

These are just my first thoughts on the game, I'm hoping to continue with writing about things of interest mainly gaming and development/other technology.

Signing off for now
