PC Minecraft Sells 8 Million

The Mojang Website has word that the phenomenal success of Minecraft continues, revealing the indie construction game has now sold more than eight million copies on the PC. To put this in perspective, they note that according to the Wikipedia, this makes it the ninth bestselling PC game of all time, ahead of such luminaries as StarCraft II, Myst, and Diablo II. In response to this, Notch has provided a message, which is either encoded, or really badly mistyped: "69I960EHE0A4A0IVG0EHE02500R4R0G1T30PLJ00V6V0EHE0V1U01V10U5U0VGV0V4R."

When Minecraft was a little alpha one man creation this was all fine but when you're selling 8mil copies and still make newcomers look up everything in a wiki then you're just fucking lazy.
I would say this is one gripe I do agree with about Minecraft. Terraria handled this well, you could give any item to the "Guide" and he would tell you all the recipes which used that item. Minecraft needs something like that so the next time I forget the exact way to make an anvil, an enchanting table, a whatever, I don't have to go look it up in the wiki.

Perhaps a place in the crafting window, put an item there, see a list of items crafted using that item.

That's why I consider the Not Enough Items (NEI) mod to be one of my two must-haves. (Redpower 2 is the other one). Not only does it allow you to view recipes and even overlay them on a crafting table, but it shows you everything you can make, which, if you have lots of mods like I do, is invaluable. Without those two mods at minimum, I won't even play Minecraft.

You can also use it as another way to /give items by playing with Cheat Mode enabled, but I only use that for server testing.
