This isn’t a sketch created from my Bamboo Create, but it’s rather a look at another creative project I’ve been working on.  Some members of our team on Banana Scoop are really into Minecraft, a game that I’ve written about here, here, and here.  We’ve finally created a server which allows us to play multiplayer and we have since then begun creating a small town.  We’re really proud of what we’ve created so far, and it’s only growing.  So sorry I haven’t been able to have time to draw, I’ve been really busy building these houses!  Here’s a look at the town created so far! Enjoy.

This is a really cool video regarding Minecraft!  The Creeper is one of the most feared creatures in the Minecraft world, and they’re kinda mysterious when it comes to where they come from.  On a developer’s note, apparently it was a pig design gone wrong, but in terms of game history, it’s hard to say.  To be honest, Minecraft doesn’t really reveal too much about story in the first place.  So I suppose we’ll just believe fan-made videos like these until the developers come up with something better.

Minecraft is trending hard in my life, so I’m tending to write a lot about it recently.One of the toughest things about Minecraft is the lack of a rulebook.  If you’re not familiar with the Minecraft wiki or the game itself, getting started can be one of the hardest things.  The game doesn’t really tell you how to start or even what you’re supposed to do when you arrive on your randomly generated world.  And if you haven’t seen any videos or don’t have an experienced buddy playing with you, learning some of the pro tips can be difficult.  I learned about half of these for the first time only about a week ago and I’ve been playing for 2-3 months!  So this is for all who could use some tips to make the best of your Minecraft experiences!

1. Pressing Shift While Clicking Allows You to Move Directly from Inventory to Chest or Chest to Inventory

If you need to move mass stacks of objects from one place to another, holding shift while you click is a good way to do that!  Before that, you’d have to click things in individual objects.  This principle can be applied to removing things from ovens, chests, inventories, etc.  Definitely a must if you need to speed move.

This image isn’t even that cool.  Pysch!!!  This is really cool.  But totally geeky.  It just really tickled my fancy because I’ve been crushing a lot of Minecraft lately.  With Aragorn screaming some classic Lord of the Rings lines, Legolas sees the dreaded Creepers, but instead of telling him they’re headed to Isengard, he does on the truly sensical thing: builds a wall of cobblestone.  Brilliant Legolas, but I also think that bow would’ve worked just as well.  Here’s to hoping it’s enchanted.

I’ve had Minecraft for a couple of months now and I’m continually finding new things to keep me interesting from the rather simple game.  There are still a number of things I still need to investigate and haven’t seen: The Nether, The End and an even larger number of things I haven’t crafted, pistons, enchanting tables, and potions.  So there are definitely a number of things I still need to do, despite playing hours upon hours of mining, digging, and cutting.  But of course, there are a number of experiences I want to share with you guys.  Here are 4 heart thumping moments I’ve had with my time with Minecraft.

Go get Minecraft here!

Without a doubt, in my experience, one of video game’s most fearsome enemy, the Creeper, may simply be misunderstood.  The motive behind any animal force essentially sacrificing itself for a chance at killing you is definitely worth looking into.  From my understanding, zombies want to eat you guts, spiders want to eat your guts, and skeleton warriors may also wanna eat your guts.  But the motive behind this creature who kills you for no known benefit is a tougher cookie to crack.  There have been images where they claim Creepers as the protectors of the lands who take out punks who are digging holes, cutting trees, and slaughtering wild life like you out.  They’re possibly defending the land and their own children from you.  Maybe you’re the video game industry’s biggest enemy.  As a being you’ve killed probably millions of fictional characters, so maybe you’re the one that’s a monster and not this cuddly green…thing.

Anywho, below are two more adorable images of Creepers.  Thanks to Deviant Artists everywhere for their imaginative renditions.

The settlers must’ve had tough time settling on any land.  We’re all read about it in the history books.  You come with essentially nothing but your own hands, and you’re expected to create a profitable civilization in which you culture growth, safety, and prosperity.  There are many video games like that, where you build from the ground up.  Many of those being similar to Farmville or Tiny Tower types.  The type where you have nothing and then through many hours of tapping and harvesting, you create a somewhat sustainable living ground which you can then decorate and personalize.  Queue Minecraft.

Minecraft is a survival/creation game where you essentially start as a settler in an unknown, untamed land.  There you must build a fortress to protect yourself from the hazard of the wildlife.  Cut trees, dig holes, forge tools, do whatever it takes to survive.  In the process, you create a home for yourself in which you grow crops, mine jewels and ores, and live as prosperously as your own merit and skill can take you.  Below is a review on this addicting game that despite it’s simple design and objective, gives me one of the most pleasurable, emotional, heartbreaking, and back-neck-hair raising experiences I’ve ever had in a game.

I thought I’d share this gem for those of you that haven’t seen it yet. Someone has managed to bring the world of Minecraft into Skyrim, complete with Steve and a few other additions, this mod for the popular Bethesda title has been stirring a lot of talk recently. Though I personally have no feelings about the game, I’m fairly certain there are many of you out there that absolutely can’t stop playing it. Here’s to you, dragonborn! Also, nothing beats getting into a fistfight with a minecraft zombie…
