Okay for my second update to this i want to talk about a game i just started playing. Minecraft is a giant sandbox game where you cam do just about anything you want. I've only played the offline so far because im currently using a cracked version from the game that doesn't support online play. Anyway, you start out with nothing at all, your popped out in the middle of your randomly generated world of blocks and have to figure out everything on your own. It gives you a feel of being the last person alive. The first thing most people will do when they find themselves in the world is explore. However this isn't the best idea to do as soon as you start out. Why, you ask? Zombies and giant green penises, need i say more? As night falls zombies, skellies and giant exploding penises spawn and try to take your head off. You have to quickly make a shelter to survive and this is where the game really takes off. You build by breaking down the land and either making special blocks or just replacing the land with what you gathered. The style reminds me and im sure everyone else of legos. Everything is in block form from your head to the sun and clouds.

I had seen a few videos on youtube about minecraft so i wanted to give it a try. From what i saw most people tunneled into the earth and carved out awesome towns and such. I wanted to go up instead of down, luckly in my world there were alot of these overhangs and floating mountains so i started by going up one and i started building a castle. I thought to myself that a castle on an overhang isn't that special so i started making bridges across my overhang and over to some floating islands near by. I just finished my castle and currently its connected to one floating island with more soon to come. The game is simply great. You are only limited by your imagination and once you are set up and ready to explore you will find yourself giggling in excitement everytime you come across a dark looming cave or a massive mountain that looks something like luigi's head.

I'll add the link to minecraft and i hope everyone tries it out. You can download the trial basic game for free, which will give you an idea of how the world is. However this is missing alot of the basic game play elements and from what i can see is really just a beta of the game to try the building aspect of the game. The full game costs about 10 euro which i think is like 12 dollars or something. Pretty cheap considering you will play this game for a good 40 plus hours before you ever get a hint of it becoming boring.

Here is the link, check it out and let me know what you think or the game. Minecraft

First post

Okay so I thought I'd start up another blog. This one will be about all the interesting, cool or weird things i find on the internet. Hopefully this will help some of you out or at least entertain you a little. I'll try to post something new at least one a week. Most of you already know who i am so i wont bore you with an intro.

The first thing i want to direct your attention to is this very useful site i found a little while back. This site basically has spiders/bots crawling the internet saving info on pictures they encounter. How it works is you upload an image you want to find and if they have the same or similar image in there data they will provide you with a link. Its pretty much the same thing as a search engine only for pictures instead of words. Anyway here is the link and i hope you find it at least a little entertaining.
