I would like to issue an apology.
After finally caving and buying the Xbox 360 Edition of Minecraft, I must admit that the game is a fairly fun sandbox building simulator. I still hesitate to call it a "game" though, seeing as it lacks many elements of a game.....like a story.....or a point beyond "break things to build things that let you break more things to build more things......".
Notch definitely deserves credit for making something as addictive as this. I was wrong to call him a "hack".
But its definitely not the second coming like people are making it out to be.
PS: Is there any way to ensure my realm gets some damn taiga? I'm tired of just desert and timberland. Also, how freaking deep do you need to go just to get some damn iron?!
