I am guessing that you are then going to drench the puppies in water and the freeze them to turn them into little Dogicles, as a warning of unrelenting malice to outsiders
I had fun once, it was awful.

I have spent the past few weeks building a farm whilst awaiting the breeding update... using fences and "gentle persuasion with a stick" to herd animals through the world to my homestead... this has been mighty frustrating...
but not as frustrating as finding they've all de-spawned after the update leaving me with 2 pigs who won't breed and a cow...

presumably there will be an update to this update to update the updates in it...

I want my farm of many coloured sheep back...

that is all...

Bit of related trivia for you all: Villagers (aka Testificates) don't seem to spawn in pre-Title Update 7 villages (the ones generated in the 1.8.2 update.

But, yeah, aside from that the update is awesome. Potion of Swiftness! AWAY! :D

I've been playing this all day, and I completely forgot about the Testes!

Uh, Testificates. You all know what I meant.
Enjoy my hate-filled, vitriolic ranting? You should! For more information, verbally assault me on Twitter - @SkinMechanical.

The update has turned my entire town area into a snow biome ruining months of building :(

Yay!! the update is finally here! XP, animal breeding and enchantment is going to add some structure to the game, but I was really hoping they would fix or alter the damn sticky pistons so you can use them more like hydraulics so you can make bigger doors etc, and perhaps be able to use the slime ball to stick other blocks to each other so that when your door opens and closes it moves all the blocks attached instead of the ones in front only.
I also hope they will bring back the option to craft manually, I enjoyed playing on the pc version you had a sense of accomplishment when you found out how to craft something. they should put blueprints for more advanced recipes etc throughout the world and make you find them.
Have they included the sand temples this time around?, although the sound of new nether mobs and nether fortresses sound good. Will they put new achievements in for this game or will they add a in-game challange sheet to complete that will change as new elements are added, stuff like skyblock etc?

It should be an automatic update when you start the game, if you're connected to LIVE. If you don't update it'll log you out of LIVE.
