Let’s talk about minecraft.
It’s rare that I get hooked on a single game, even more so when it’s a simple one as minecraft.
But heck, I just can’t turn it off. I still remember when I bought the game during the beta phase, I didn’t even know how to mine properly and died in the first night without resources, rage-quitting right away. A few month later I came back and figured out to how to mine and did some boring stuff. Mainly just testing things out.
But then! I forgot how, but I came across a Let’s play Minecraft series of some German guy, and boy, it was brilliant. He had around 1000 episodes, around 30-40min per ep, on youtube and I watched them all.
I was fucking inspired, so I started a new world on my own game again. That was roughly 2 years(?) ago and I’m still playing the fucking same world!
Holy shit. Tbh, I have explored everything that can be explored. Cleared an ocean monument, build an exp farm, a netherworld network, etc, etc.
But somehow I’m not growing tired of it. Just the other day I invested two whole days (and I mean whole days. Did nothing but mining except for food and toilet) to connect a stronghold to my network. As the expert amongst you might know, a stronghold is deep underground and I had the brilliant idea to completely dig it out! Yay!
I love how it turned out, but thinking back on it, I stupidly mined away a good million of blocks just for the heck of it oO
I’m still wondering how the heck the train achievement works, cuz I’m sure that I traveled 1km already, albeit not in a straight line. Maybe that’s the flaw? Gonna be a pain in the neck…
Anyway, it’s an awesome way to uselessly spend your time on! I can only recommend it.
Wait, you aren’t here to hear me talking about my minecraft adventures?? Blasphemy!
Well, have some Risou then.
