News Comments > MS/Mojang $2.5B Deal Confirmed

"There are only a handful of potential buyers with the resources to grow Minecraft on a scale that it deserves."
I thought the modding community was doing a pretty bang-up job all by itself, unless he thinks Minecraft can only reach it's potential on Windows phones, and no game deserves that.

This exchange is starting to reflect the average age of the Minecraft player base, me thinks.

WTF, Notch? After all that "corporations ruin everything" talk and saying (very recently) that you wouldn't sell if it wasn't best for Minecraft. You think MS is good for MC? Minecraft is a PC game, and now you sell out to what is essentially lava to PC gaming. What a POS. Microsoft acquires yet another awesome game and will ruin it and everything about it that makes it an awesome game, just like they fucked up Halo, and created millions of console dipshits who grew up thinking that the shit they were playing, and continue to play, must be what video games really are... interactive movies occasionally interrupted by some actual player input, if not really "gameplay". Destiny is a perfect example. I've been watching a couple LPs and I just don't get it. Terrible game that console jockeys seem to be absolutely spooging over. It's no more exciting (or difficult) than square peg in square hole. If I want to watch a movie, I'd rather it wasn't interrupted by simplistic and meaningless input requirements from me just to make me feel like I'm actually in control or "part of the story".

Well, that kind of went off on a tangent, didn't it? Anyhoo... WTF, Notch?!

Windows 2000 and Windows Vista were actually more popular than Windows XP and Windows 7, respectively, among power users.

Puh-lease! Vista was a DOG of an OS that no "power user" I know of wanted anything to do with. Insane amount of hand-holding and confirmation prompts for the most basic of tasks. I hated working on Vista machines, and skipped it myself, jumping from XP to 7. I like 7. It's solid and stable and fast. No reason to upgrade to the latest dog that is 8, and 9 will have to be pretty special for me to bother. I don't need Office or Firefox or Minecraft or Photoshop to open faster than they do now, and they can't really run better. After seeing the Android OS that MS tried to pass off as Windows8, I'm not really impressed with what their idea of "upgrade" means. I don't want a Mac. I want a Windows machine that I have absolute control of every program and service that loads. I want a fucking file manager where I "see" where all my shit is and move it where I want easily, NOT "My Pictures" or "My Documents", and certainly not those big square block thingies of Windows8.

Basically, I want DOS/Win3.1 with XTreeGold (and DirectX 11 support).

I love how at least 2 people have explained about how this does not effect the pro scene or dualing period and its going unseen cause its better to troll....
Awww... nobody listening to you, pumpkin?
Play in "Classic Duel Mode" or the new "Console Duel Mode".

Better? The point was that the new rules are the same kind of arcadey, hand-holding concessions made for console gamers.

Graphics look a little better, I guess, but gameplay still looks boring as fuck.

Hmm, not here... when I just went there I got a Bitdefender ad, but no alert. Is anyone else seeing a problem?

Hmmm, that's strange. I'm pretty sure I didn't get fooled by an ad. My BD tray icon changed color and the pop-up pointed to a new file in my "Users" folder. Did it three times and all three are in my BD history as Trojan.JS.QVC (aka Aquarius). I just tried the page again, however, and got no more alerts.

Stop giving the guy so much credit for shit he did 20 years ago, people.

I'm still playing the games he made 20 years ago, and they are still a blast. Daikatana was lame, but he's still a game God as far as I'm concerned. Any time his name is even mentioned, you Debbi Doomers (swidt?) come out of the woodwork with the "bitch" and Daikatana comments, or "done nothing since id" bullshit, as if you've forgotten he's made some of the best fucking games of all time. He hasn't made a PC shooter since Daikatana. And with the new Doom looking shittier and shittier the more I learn about it, I can't wait to see what he does (as long as it's a PC game).

Damn, I'm kind of in the mood for yet another playthrough of Quake Dark Places now...
