Minecraft Soundtrack Now Available For $4

If you need me, I'll be in my now-massive mine complex or my mid-century modern castle for the rest of my natural life. There's a new Minecraft update. Update 1.4 is (finally) live, and it adds some amazing things to the best game ever made. Here's what's on the agenda:

  • Tameable wolves: Finally, a companion animal in the huge-but-lonely world of Minecraft. How the little doggies will work remains to be seen, but I'm gonna get one.
  • Cookies: To feed your wolf?
  • Moveable spawn points: I'm not sure if I agree conceptually with players being able to move spawn points, but it will save me a hell of a lot of trouble when I accidentally fall into lava far from home. Which I do all the time. You change your spawn point by sleeping in a bed.
  • Spiders will no longer trample crops: I haven't become interested in Minecraft agriculture, but, hey, anything to keep the north 40 pristine
  • "Lots and lots of infrastructure for Statistics lists and Achievements."  Not the actual achievements and stats, but the infrastructure to make them possible in the future.

Minecraft is more than just a great game; purchasing the beta and being involved is also a great way to look into the development of a great game. Every new update adds more content that gets the game closer and closer to a "finished" state. At the risk of sounding like a commercial, I suggest you download and install Minecraft at once! Then, watch my Minecraft tutorial and get building.

All of the best people are following Steve Johnson's twitter feed. Also, email me if you wanna.
