Minecraft is all I think about. While I'm at work, I'm thinking about playing. This entire weekend has been spent playing Minecraft. My ass aches. I can't believe I waited so long to play.
The game definitely feels like a thoroughly-fleshed out adventure game and it seems well-balanced. I just chopped up another dozen trees to spider-proof my compound. AGAIN. Little fuckers. I've got a pretty cool working farm: wheat, sugar, pumpkins, pigs, chickens, cows. Looking forward to finding melon seeds so I can add them as well.
I haven't visited any villages or mineshafts yet but I was able to make a compass and a clock. You wouldn't think a clock would be necessary but I'll be damned if it hasn't made all the difference in my productivity.
