VIDEO GAMES: Minecraft on XBLA might be worth your time
Now I say that it might be worth your time IN ADDITION to playing Minecraft on PC where it originated. If you haven't played it yet, I highly recommend giving Minecraft a try. It brings those infinite possibilities that Legos have presented us with and puts them on a even larger scale. Currently Minecraft is in development for XBLA and it sounds like they're making some additions to improve upon an already extremely solid formula. IGN has reported that not only will they be adding a in-game crafting system and guide which will make it infinitely easier to learn how to build things in the game, but there will be up to 8 players allowed to play in any given world. What does this mean? Well first off you can play up to 4 player split screen on one console so you can work together with your friends to build whatever you can imagine. But you can also connect via Xbox Live with your friends so you can build your world together. Up to 4 Live accounts can be in a world, so playing 2 player split screen on 4 separate consoles is the max you can fit into an environment. I can't tell you how much more fun this will make a game that is already incredibly addicting. The game is set to hit the XBLA store in Spring of this year!
