You misunderstood what I meant by console noobs. I meant it in the sense … You misunderstood what I meant by console noobs. I meant it in the sense that this game can run on my mum's P4 computer that has a 8400GS graphics card perfectly, so the only real reason to buy it on console is for "Achievements" which is like the only thing a lot of console players care about. The Xbox version has no server support, so you can only play direct connection, a controller is not better than a keyboard and mouse on this game (and no, that isn't just my opinion it's a fact, the same way that Super Meat Boy is better with a controller) It's also behind the PC version on the updates too. You will actually find that Minecraft itself doesn't support mods on the PC side, you actually have to modify your game client for single player mods - it's the server mods that matter, and as it doesn't support servers anyway it means even if you could get mods it would only be the lame single player ones. My server has an economy, dragons you can fly on, MMO abilities, Locks so you can lock chests/doors + Spout which gives you a compass + map on your HUD, custom blocks and entities like Iron, gold and diamond furnaces, and that is just naming a few (35 running on server atm.)I'd advise anyone to torrent a copy of the full PC version 1.2.5 and see how it runs - you'd be suprised at how little this game requires (It mainly uses RAM) and if it does work just buy the PC one. You will get a lot more out of the game.



Fair du's well i'm a pc gamer although my rigs got a bit out dated i didnt buy the xbox for achievements however i bought it for playing with my other friends online although achievements are just like a goal to get somethings done some people buy a game get the achievements and never play the game again, my girlfriends son has the pc version but just got the xbox version too i got the xbox version and now me and my girlfriend play it non stop lol and we have all the achievements we had them since the first couple of days however saying that its cool to be able to get your friends who have an xbox and not a pc to play with and in the same way its the platform thats easier to see what games your friends playing when their up for some gaming.

As reguards torrent downloading it was my understanding that you had to pay for minecraft pc version i understand how torrents work and what not but i guess you would have to register a name to play with and be registered through a system unless its all patched and key gened or something?

The 360 one is completely pointless, lacks a lot of functionality and really is just for console noobs to pretend they can Minecraft.

The looks are quite deceptive as it definitely does make the game appear very basic but there is a surprising depth due to the variety of materials, the ability to have logic circuits (someone built a 16-bit Arithmetic Logic Unit in Minecraft) and powered transport systems. This is where the unguided approach though makes the game difficult to get into although in some regards that's possibly good as I really hate that I end up spending ages on the game building and mining away in a game. I've managed to avoid playing it for a few weeks though...

Minecraft is Awesome!! & Is PC Gamer Game of the Year

Just because it gots basic graphics thats the whole point to the game. People have brought it on a wim and gone OMG this is pure Fun! Dont be put off by the 360 & ps3 fanboy oh its gotta have uber graphics brigade on here. Its why PC Gamer UK Magazine have made it Game of the Year! and they know what they are on about.

pcgamer.com/201…ar/

The clan im in has been supporting the game for a year already and even has an official server even though the game is still in Beta.

Check out the Minecraft Central forums below for everything Minecraft.

ntclan.org.uk

Joining the server is by invite so you have to read and follow the rules but the server already has a planning department and land claiming and also a rail network and we are currently running a design competition where you can win a game. Everyone uses Mumble for game comms which we have a server for as well.

Great Price for an Awesome game, its so addictive just like Lego but you can build absolutely anything.
