Shuriken, rocket boots and laser blades ahoy

2012 gave rise to the greatest ideological clash of our time - and no, I'm not talking about the US election. In the red corner, the bloodied and battleworn forces of Call of Duty. And in the blue, the inexhaustible font of soul-nourishing cuboid architecture that is Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition.

I'm so excited for this. My pc sucks and I've been hoping for this for a while now. When I first heard it was coming to console freaked out. Did you happen to get any info on release dates?

OXM is coincidence land, or magic word generator land where you say something and there's important news or features created mere hours later. I tire of sticking battlefront 3 into every conversation but one day it will happen. Anyway, any word on when this will drop?
It's all in the game...

Minecraft never really grabbed my attention, but I've been watching this with a keen interest for some time.

Having built up a strong apathy towards anything that even attempts to do Minecraft-related activities and retro graphics, as far as I'm concerned Terraria has got its work cut out to stand up and be counted as new and interesting. Watching this space for more.

It's based off an old design I had for a children's cuddly toy. Glad you approve. :D

I thought Minecraft was one of the most boring games ever created. As far as I can tell (and have been told) the only goals the player has is "I dunno... Build stuff." Great for creative people who like to mess about with things but I prefer games where there's a point in playing. Plus it seems like the graphics are purposefully bad. I've got no problem with retro, just with games that are less than they could be. [/Rant]

However this looks like it could be fun. Looks like it was made to be fun (rather than a tutorial on building and architecture). I'll play the demo and hope that it's more like a new, original idea and less like Minecraft.
Being good at stuff is overrated. Probably.
