Bandwagon? OH NO!

Posted 10-18-2010 at 08:48 PM by BriGuy92
I've finally been sucked into the soul-stealing vortex of doom that is Minecraft. After hearing tales of fellow students staying up all night digging deeper and deeper into their fabricated game-worlds, missing classes, skipping meals, and failing test, I was wary of trying it out for myself. But today I ended up with a copy of it, so I thought "well what could possibly go wrong?" (Note to self: All those times in movies, TV, video games, etc, when someone says "what could possibly go wrong" and then they are shown exactly what could go wrong... that actually happens. In real life.) So yeah. I spent an afternoon... evening... night playing Minecraft, and now I can say several things:
1) I can see precisely why so many people are turning themselves into zombies over this game: it really is that awesome.
2) I've managed to keep my psyche intact for the time being. We'll see what the next days bring.
3) My anti-bandwagon-jumping skills are weaker than I imagined. I still haven't got a Twitter account though, so I think I'm fine.

At any rate, if you've been thinking of playing Minecraft, go ahead if you also think you can keep from letting it take over your life. It is a fun game, and the potential of multiplayer makes it even funner. Seeing how /ggFTW is an MMO community, I would assume everyone here is either really good at not wasting time, or really, really bad at not wasting time. Decide for yourself.

Also: I've broken out of a recent rut of not watching any anime, what with fall series starting recently and all. So far, I'm following Shinryaku! Ika Musume (I'm told it's like a cute version of Sgt. Frog, I can't verify that because I've never seen Sgt. Frog) and MM! (One of the most seriously screwed up shows I have ever seen, ever, and I am going to leave it at that), with perhaps more to follow. That is, when I can wrangle some time between schoolwork and playing Minecraft.

Also also: Anyone remember that Cave Story thing I started a while back? Anyone? Well, if you're interested/have been following it (I know someone is, those 7 views didn't come out of thin air) then stay tuned for another very soon, likely tomorrow afternoon. I tried to record a video last Sunday night, but my computer ended up hating me and deleted the video after I took it. Which was lame. But I've worked out all the problems now, and video capture is functioning properly again.

That's all.

    Woohoo sleep deprivation! I should be sleeping, but I'm trolling instead! And I think it might be in the healthiest interest of others that the video didn't save, I think people might think they were listening to Cthulhu have a conversation with someone

    You know, you're probably right. And I'm sure it didn't help that Cthulhu was there in the room having conversations with people. You know what, I don't think you're allowed to invite him to our parties anymore. He ate all the chips, that jerk!

    But he promised me he would be on his best behavior, how was I supposed to know he would do that? Besides, nothing happened...

    Well, except for when we apparently all blacked out for about an hour and there were hieroglyphics and stuff written on the wall in blood, that was weird.
