Boo for minecraft! I realized I can't trade my minecraft account, because that means I have to trade in my email as well. Darn! I can't even change my email address! Like what happens if email service provider just died? Now what? Ugh! I really want to get rid of that game so badly and trade it in for a blockland account or a steam game or something.

Don't want to sound like a nasty person, but this section of the forum is meant for Bionicle or Lego news. How is this relevant to either of these?

Ive actually been thinking we should change the news forum description for news like this.
Minecraft is a 3D block building game. Having a creative nature, it makes sense that it would fit into the news section of a fansite for a building toy.

Not too sure I agree with that idea but I can see where you are coming from. I shall just return to my hibernation....

Eeyup.

And there was already some non Lego news in this forum. tongue.gif

Darn, the game costs more than I wanted to pay for it... Guess I'm gonna spend 6.99 on it. xD

I would trade you my account if it would let me change my email address. (How are you going to spend $7 on it, Shadrahk?

The reasons why I don't like Minecraft as of now, is because when I first purchased that game back in Sept 2010 (When it was 10 Euros = 15 US Dollars), it was still in Alpha. It wasn't well known at the time, and everything was simpler. Ever since it started getting popularity around late Nov 2010, I started hating it.
One of the main reasons is that it doesn't give you a variety of pieces (Like triangular, cone, and ball shapes.), and I find it pretty stupid that I have to craft one block for another block, for another block, to just have the same shape block, but with a different texture. sleep.gif
Another thing what I don't like about the game is that you have to start from the ground up. Using your bare fists, to eventually get a diamond pickaxe. I know, it appealed to me at first, but right now I don't have time to 'waste' my time gathering raw resources. When I could be building something right away.
Building also sucks in the game, because you only build by adding one block at a time. It is not like in LDD where you can copy a section of blocks and paste it, if your trying to make isometric creations. sad.gif

I think you should invest your money in Blockland or just build stuff in LDD (Although I wish they could add some LU mechanics like I suggested to TLC). If you buy Blockland, you have so much variety of pieces and it would be better in the long run if you don't want to waste your time gathering materials, when you could have all the bricks at your disposal. Plus it has physics!!!
The reason why I bought Minecraft at the time was because I didn't have a computer, and I was using the schools computer to play my games (Like Urban Terror, Quake, etc.). I was trying to find a building program where it doesn't take up lots of space in my flash disk. :/

Well if you want to do survival mode and get access to roughly infinite blocks, you can run a server localy on your computer. After it sets up, shut it down and copy your world of choice's save data into the server world data slot. Then from the server control pannel you can give yourself the materials you want.

Also, I think Shadrahk is talking about Minecraft Pocket edition, which is basicaly the beta version with no survival mode and missing some of the blocks. Being the dumbed down version, they've reduced the price quite a bit. Too expensive for me though.

If you already own PC regular minecraft, theres two ways of looking at it. A, dont pay until it goes on sale or they update it with more features, and B, buy it now in hopes our combined support of the game encourage more pocket edition updates.

Im going with C, Buy minebuilder for 1.29 XP
