Mojang decided to celebrate the anniversary that Minecraft has now been downloaded over 2 million times in the four days since its release, with Skin pack they made their debut anniversary.
Sounds pretty cool to us, free skins for gamers which you could only see on PC’s and Mac’s before, you can see console version is going step by step to full computer game. There is one thing they miss, and that is Mods. While moderators have work to do on computers for the players sometimes they also have a console audience but they aren’t able to approach it, not yet atleast. Maybe sometimes in future we see mods coming on to consoles too.
Avatar’s appearance is a important factor to many player in Minecraft, you are recognized by it and you get into your character more easily since you got a different look that other gamers.
Mojang, our lovely game developer famous for their cult game (it gained that status since it released) just announced that it got bigger in numbers, and by that we mean 10 million download.
Not only that sounds good, but we need to take in consideration that the game is being sold on mobile devices at $6.99 price. This is pretty successful for a game like this, well it was ported just from PC not being specially made for touch like other games are. Pocket edition of Minecraft is being constantly updated and more and more it’s being matched with computer version, we don’t even know does some option miss from this version. Mods are obvious thing but that is custom made from people that don’t actually work at Mojang.
Not so late ago PC version hit 10 million downloads, but yes mobile is a bit more accessible but we don’t know anyone there without a computer also.
Horses! Yes,horses will be added to Minecraft and we will probably enjoy it a lot. Cool thing about this addition to the game is that they credit a modder for this which makes us happy as seeing that mods have influence on games. Mo’ Creatures mod is what inspired the Mojang programers and designers. But that’s all that will happen concerning the animals cause you won’t see anymore animals being added in this latest Minecraft update. Where can you find horses? In the wild but when you hop on them they will try everything to knock you out back since that’s their nature. You have to earn it’s respect and after a while you will be the prince on a horse every girl in Minecraft dreams off.
Update by update in Minecraft
What about technical aspect of the game ? Well it will be changing from Java 5 to Java 6, which I personally have problems updating on my computer.
You may have heard about this game that come out recently, they say it’s not pretty bad for an FPS. Just kidding, it’s skyrocketing in reviews from critics and the fans from around the world, sales are also doing good, but the big shame is only 5% fell to PC market, while Xbox gained around 56% of sales, at least for now.
It’s only mater of time until someone made this into a Minecraft game, we are guessing without any mods but that’s ok, it’s maybe even more better cause of it since it is done with their hands only. Looks awesome doesn’t it ? This is just one of the cooler things people have built over time in this fantastic game by Mojang, but this one is one of my personal favorites. We hope Booker get’s along fine in this new blocky Bioshock world.
As we talked about this update before we are reminding you all gamers out there that still play (not like it’s not cool anymore, but it is) update 9 is coming to our platforms, depends which platform you are on. In the meanwhile you should check out this Dota 2 like Minecraft video we enjoyed and we just had to share it with you guys, just like we share our Mod Loader with you that is still up there for download.
Since now mobile is a big hit and a more and more game are transferring to these kind of devices, tablets and smartphone we wonder will Scrolls, the next Mojang game , come to iOS and Android or maybe even Windows Phone 8 which is something we shouldn’t ignore as Windows 8 too. With all those eights around us and Microsoft focusing on one big eco system we could probably see a new Xbox not with the name Xbox 720 but Xbox 8 which makes a lot more sense to press and players that love downloading games and programs.
You may noticed smooth lighting in Minecraft past months as an result of various updates, while the effect is all looking good and such some players reported that they have frame drop issue cause of that and in this 1.5.1 version of the game we hope this will be fixed, that damn Java just isn’t friendly with us.
But it’s not only PC that’s getting updates and new stuff, Mojang didn’t forget Xbox also, which just got a trailer for the end game or some call id Dragon ending and we also prefer that one. Make sure to watch the video below.
Not only frame drops are being fixed. Those horrible white lines you see sometimes between the blocks are now the thing of the past and we are forever grateful for programmers at Mojang for that, mods also can get in the trash cause of bugs like that. Speaking of mods TFC mod manager is still for download or as some may call it Mod Loader Minecraft.
Before we start about Minecraft going hard, and by that we mean you will be able to get a hard copy of your favorite PC/ console game we want you to see latest video which is pretty hyped on youtube and it shows off visualization of creating process of Minecraft.
Pretty cool huh ? Yea we think that too also it’s nice to see that Notch was able to let his baby being coded by someone else, wondering is the feeling similar when you let your MOD being downloaded in the public or even modified a bit more by someone you actually don’t know.
So when will you be able to buy a retail version of the game ? April 30 and it will be only for Xbox 360. What about the updates we keep you informed about a lot of the times ? Yes they will be there on the disc with the game and also the ninth update that is coming will also be there on your Xbox 360 console. We wonder why PC isn’t gonna get a retail version, but maybe that’s the best it was first digital why wouldn’t it stay like that.
In the past there were a lot of talks about porting Minecraft to other platforms, like newly announced Playstation 4 and we made a opinion about that, also got for you some official information about it. With PC version still being quite popular since it certainly didn’t see any kind of fail in purchases we can say that PS3 players have a lot to look forward to.
Something new comes from Mojang to pocket edition, they call it “so-called online multiplayer going” in their response to question about making smartphone version a bit more like PC one. I guess they will never have mods like us, eh ?
Jens Bergensten also said that Playstation 3 could be possible, and we look at that as why not, maybe only because of some kind of deal they have with Microsoft and their Xbox 360 console, but when Xbox 8 gets announced they would probably release their chains from Mojang dev team and let them do and program what they want and for who they want.
Freedom is a key part when making games, something that EA could listen to.
With the reveal of Play Station 4 many questions were raised, what developers will be working on it, is the loved Mojang ready to make a Minecraft for Play Station 4 or even Rovio a popular creator of Angry Birds which has millions and millions of downloads across all platforms, even Google Chrome.
Exact number of european teams working on Play Station 4 content is 28, some of you may know couple of them, like CD project and Ubisoft. But with the whole reveal of new console which is next gen isn’t a reveal actually, since console hasn’t been showed yet, only the famous already now controller which has improved buttons and everything actually. Share button is something gamers will love, but the question is will you be able to share it on Youtube like many Minecraft gamers do and show off their builds with thousands of blocks and using a lot of time on all of it.
Maybe Minecraft won’t be coming to PS4 but the future games from Mojang are possible, since they are not denied yet.
Since Minecraft has been out there for download for every single device you can actually own and sales rising and rising, also Notch’s bank account is, now Minecraft comes to the Minecraft: Pi Edition. Minecraft: Pi Edition is some kind of special version of our favorite promo code, no mean Minecraft an popular indie title. Raspberry Pi will be a great joy now that it has the most popular game out there. It can run a on a microsized computer.
For those out there who don’t know what are we talking about, are know well taught. It is a computer built for educational purposes. Hackers love it, we don’t wanna know why to be honest. And here’s a picture below how the whole game and interface looks like.
Better than a Mac huh ? Well that’s not hard to be honest , but enough trolling ( i actually own a MacBook) you should get more familiar with this version / edition cause you will like it, cause, come on it’s Minecraft after all.
