VIDEO GAMES: This is insane.
I'm sure by now most of you have heard of Minecraft. It's the game where you break down blocks of material in order to craft and build other materials. It spawns you in a completely randomized world and you begin to build whatever your heart desires. There has already been a plethora of Youtube videos showing absolutely insane creations people have designed in the game and there is already a convention completely dedicated to the game on its way. Oh and the other thing...the game has not even officially been released yet! Yes, all this time the game has been in beta meaning that it is still being tested. Even more impressive? The game HAS ALREADY SOLD OVER 4 MILLION COPIES! Are you kidding me? Before it has even come out over 4 million people have paid to play the game while it is still being tested. This is absolutely mind blowing to me. I am one of the 4 million and I can tell you the game truly is remarkable. It's a simple premise played out to perfection. The game's creator, Notch is one of the most low key and awesome people in the gaming industry right now and I hope he's proud of what he's already created. Anyways, the game actually releases on November 18 and apparently it will come to Xbox 360 sometime in the near future.
