Minecraft Version 1.8 Nears

The Minecraft Frequently Asked Questions on reddit reveals an ETA for the beta version 1.8 "Adventure Update Part 1" for Minecraft (here's a trailer), saying the patch is expected September 8. However, a tweet by Jens Bergensten (thanks IGN) cast doubt on this: "Looks grim to get a release out on 8th. We need more testing, one day is not enough. And we never release on fridays [sic]... I'll keep you posted."

Ha! The comment comes from me seeing a long line of people wince when I answered a question truthfully instead of being politically correct.

My RL friends sometimes actually refer to me as Mr. Tact.

Prepare for pain.

Hmm, if you prepare for it, then it ends up hurting 100 times MORE than if it just happened randomly...But then, how do the kickboxers and bar brawlers/fight clubbers do it? Could you imagine if humans didn't have adrenaline and endorphins to cover up pain? Wow, we'd really be screwed...then again, it might've made us humans more docile knowing pain was going to be really...uh, painful...

I have no idea why I came up with that, that is literally my train of thought there...maybe nominate for most off-topic post of the day...

There's a post on the on-line forums indicating the release will be on the 12th now.

Here is the post:

You people finally waking up to what I've been telling you since the beginning? Good.

The man is a shyster. A huckster. Always has been. .


Notch has a far better reputation here than you ever will.

You realize a reputation on bluesnews means next to nothing...?

Not to mention Notch is indeed a shyster.

That trailer was so damn lackluster. I think there was maybe 1 new thing shown in it...

Meanwhile, he is a RICH shyster/huckser. While you are a POOR paragon of truth & justice, a shining example of all that is good in this universe.

Go figure.

Ah, lying through his teeth so he can postpone a release by making the original release date sound ridiculous.
Kudos for following in your bigger peers' footsteps.
Don't worry, though, I'm sure most will think it was a "honest mistake".

It was pretty fun for a while. Now I hardly ever start it up.

I got my money's worth though. No real complaints.

Aw, never release on Fridays?? I can't think of a better day of the friggin' week to release awesomeness!

There was an update released on a Friday a while back that broke a mess of things, since Notch and Co. tend to not work on weekends, the game went broken until Monday.

I remember a period of time when Notch used to release updates EVERY Friday. He didn't say what was in them so people had to find out for themselves. Those were the days...
