Looks like Minecraft 1.8 has been LEAKED

No I don't have the leaked download. Look it up on google and be careful of what you might download.

"Da2Shae, I've been living under a rock for a good while, whats so great about Minecraft v1.8?"

If you've been behind the Minecraft game for a bit then you might not know what the hype is about version 1.8.
Basically its the beginning of Minecraft's Adventure update. With NPCs, new quests and such. Of course quests and NPCs arent going to be in 1.8 but perhaps in 1.9. But this version still brings a lot of new features to the table as well as new monsters, experience orbs, a well designed world generator and much more.

And of course because of Notch's fail creative programming, there's going to be some glitches/lag in the game. Also, since this is a new version of the game mods will not work at all. So you'll have to play the game legit.

OK NOWW I'm back into blogging.

I just needed the summer to relax a bit from college. Those final exams were hectic.


Well anyway I'll start to cover more gaming news and stuff about Minecraft and Terraria as well as upcoming releases.

Oh and by the way, did you know that the developers of the "Elder Scrolls" series Bethesda have threatened to sue Mojang (Creators of minecraft) for the use of the word "Scroll" in one of their upcoming projects?

Thats just crazy. Now the whole story isin't out yet because of legal issues but rest assured that everything is going to be fine. (I hope!)

Stay tuned!

Sweet mother of mercy Team Fortress 2 is now FREE FOREVER.

My body was not ready for news like this. We've been hearing forever about how great this game is and we finally get the chance to download it for free!
You can get Team Fortress 2 by downloading Steam (A simple online game store/manager) and using that program to download Team Fortress 2. Its available for both Mac and PC.

Fair warning for those planning on downloading the game, the servers will be so backed up with other users trying to download the game. You may want to leave your computer on overnight while it downloads because it can take SEVERAL hours for the download to finish!

I also noticed on several TF2 forums that people who have paid for this game prior to this weekend. I'd be angry too if I bought the game and it became free-to-play all of a sudden.

Thats all for now guys, I gotta get back to gaming!

Relax your buttholes, I'm still alive.

Yes, I'm still alive guys. I just haven't made a post in so long. I took a long needed break from blogging. And I come back to see that I'm at 97 followers! Wow!

Well anyway, what kind of Games and Media blog doesn't cover what happened at E3?
I'm totally sure you know the unveiling of the Wii-U and the PS Vita. As well as more Kinect stuff, Uncharted 3 and Legend of Zelda: OoT re-release for the 3DS. (Which reminds me, I need to pick up a 3DS one of these days...)

In my opinion, I've been a huge nintendo fan since the N64; Mainly because of Mario, Super smash bros, pokemon and Sonic. Ever since I chose the Wii over the 360 just to play Super smash bros Brawl, I've been having doubts in the back of my mind about the Wii. I could'nt (and still can't) afford to have more than one system of this generation so PS3 or an extra system was out of the question. This time, I'm not going to make that mistake. Although Legend of Zelda and the new SSB game does seem tempting...

It might all boil down to the price and availability of the consoles for me. But anywho...

I won't bore you with words so I'll leave you with a few videos and a question:
What releases are you guys most excited to see come out in the near future?

Sorta getting used to this whole "Blogging" deal.

Now that its been a few weeks (And almost 100 followers!) later since my first blog post, I'm getting used to using blogger!
You guys noticed that I added a background cool right? Don't get me wrong, I always knew how to add one of those basic default background that blogger provides. But I've seen some of you guy's blogs and you've got some amazing custom backgrounds!

So can some of you guys provide tips to improve my blog's aesthetic appeal so that I can enhance your viewing experience?

This is your chance to complain/give tips etc.. Help me to help you!

"Welcome back" PSN!

A few months back, a group of hackers threatened Sony for the Geohot lawsuit and shut down the Playstation Network for a good long while.
Rage ensued for many hardcore PS3 gamers, nintendo rejoiced. (In my head anyway.)



What do you PSN users get for dealing with all this? A LOT!
From: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/06/03/welcome-back/
NOTE: I highlighted a few key points to shorten your reading.


Q: What’s in the Welcome Back Program?
A: To start, all PSN members who had signed up before the outage (April 20, 2011) will be able to select two games for the PS3 system and two games for the PSP system.
For PS3 owners, go to the ‘Welcome Back’ section in the PlayStation Store, and select 2 titles from the following list:
  • Dead Nation
  • inFAMOUS
  • LittleBigPlanet
  • Super Stardust HD
  • Wipeout HD + Fury
For PSP owners, go to the ‘Welcome Back’ section of PlayStation Store on your PSP system and select 2 titles from the following list:
  • LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
  • ModNation Racers
  • Pursuit Force
  • Killzone Liberation
Select your first game from “Game 1”, then return to the Welcome Back page and go to “Game 2” to select your second game out of the remaining choices available. This goes for both PS3 and PSP.
In addition, we’re giving access to our premium subscription service, PlayStation Plus, which includes games, huge discounts, exciting exclusives and added features like online storage and automatic downloads, to all PSN members for 30 days at no charge, requiring no long term commitment. As with the games above, go to the PlayStation Store and under the ‘Welcome Back’ section, select ‘PlayStation Plus: 30 Days Free’, and you’ll be given access to all of the benefits of PlayStation Plus. Note that this will not auto-renew and simply expires 30 days after activation.
Current Plus subscribers receive an extra 60 days added to their existing subscription at no charge. For current Plus subscribers, no action is needed as the 60 days are automatically added to your subscription.
PlayStation Network users will also get 100 virtual items in PlayStation Home as a show of appreciation for your patience while Home was inaccessible. Additional content is coming soon, including the next addition to the Home Mansion personal space, and Ooblag’s Alien Casino, an exclusive game.
A selection of “On Us” movie rentals are currently available to PlayStation Network customers this weekend only, where Video Service is available.
Finally, current Music Unlimited Premium subscription members will receive an additional 30 days of premium subscription plus days lost due to the outage.

Well it looks like PSN owners are getting alot! I hope that Wii/Xbox360 owners don't get any ideas. *Hint *hint*
What do you guys think?

EDIT: It lasts until July 3rd so get it now!

So how is Terraria doing?

As many of you remember, I covered some information on the new mining-adventure indie game called "Terraria" a few weeks back. I thought I'd bring some stuff to light and show you guys how its doing so far.

As usual with many new games, there are hundreds of Let's Plays and guides to go along with it.

Here's a featured guide on how to kill the high level boss "Skeletron." This video was featured on the main page of Terrariaonline.com not too long ago.


There's also a comic series!

View the rest of the series in this thread on the official forums.
http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/terraria-adventures-a-comic-stickied-by-blue.11848/

The game sold over 200,000 copies the first week! At 10$ per copy of the game, thats over $2 Million in the first week!

Blue (One of the founders of the game) gave a "Behind the Scenes" view of the developer's To-Do list of things coming in the following months. Including dedicated servers, PvP games, weather (Seasons), environmental sounds, and other cool little additions to the game!
http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/a-peek-behind-the-scenes.18093/

Again, if you're interested in buying the game, its only 10$ on steam! Go check it out!
