As I mentioned in a post a while back, my lad and I are building a pirate land in MCPE and although we have started filming that using a seed on his tablet, I decided to film the same seed on my tablet so you could see what the world looked like before we hacked the Dickens out of it and filled it full of pigs 🙂
You can follow the slow progress of this world over on his blog here. Obviously he’s not writing that at the moment but maybe he’ll take over when he’s older.
Rudedog’s in town and he’s not taking any prisoners! One of the most talented builders I’ve ever seen in MCPE, he’s eagerly awaiting the iOS release of Survivalcraft and judging by his work that release can’t come soon enough! Follow his new blog over at http://rudedogblogdotcom.wordpress.com and check out his bloody amazing MCPE build in this post here.
Over on the next island to Antland a stranded soul is journaling her struggle to survive after she too was marooned. Pop over to http://survivalcraftandskyrim.wordpress.com/ and follow her progress. So far she’s survived hungry wolf packs, angry bear attacks and a forest fire that burnt her tree-top house to the ground!
Do you know what else? For me it’s nice to have another mature player of the game to read, someone with limited time and young kids that I can relate to as opposed to the shouty 10 year olds who seem to infest the game’s main website. Ahh, the lot of us betabletted-dads is a tough one 😉
Holy crap… you remember the scene in Ghostbusters where they try to convince the mayor that the city is facing some very serious shit indeed? Remember the speech they gave about real Biblical, Old Testament crapola about to rise up and bite the arse out of New York. Boiling seas. Brimstone from the sky. Forty days of Darkness. Remember it? Well remember when Venkman added “…cats and dogs living together…” to the end of that just before telling the mayor (Lenny…) that he could save the lives of millions of registered voters? Well, remember then how we laughed like drains little realising that in those words, or rather in their meaning, lay a dire warning for us all that would only come to fruition over twenty years later. Today, in fact. Now. The End of Days has begun.
Now to prove this I can’t give you cats and dogs living together (largely because Eggy wouldn’t allow it) but I can give you the next best, spine-chilling thing. Even more spine chilling than the Brown smile (*shudder*). Ladies and gentlebumps, I give you not one, but two grand old grumpy buggers making with da funnies.
First Prok stops telling everyone including God that they are dumber than a box of very stupid bricks and instead makes fun of the whole metaverse in one long (still angry) gigglefest about Island Life.
Then only a day later (although an important day) Dame Oridinal stops tutting and writing unseen comments in her notebook to tell us just how she will save Linden Lab.
I don’t think my wee dumb, tut-worthy brain can cope with such a shift in the known and stable universe I’d come to rely on. I feel like a man who’s woken up to find Newsnight has won a best New Comedy award and Paxman regarded as the new Ricky Gervais. It’s not right and I’d like to ask them both to stop messing with our minds and just go back to being grumpy!
I love – LOVE! – this neat little gizomo on Avatrian (huge TY to Osprey for finding it!). You simply enter a sim name and the X,Y & Z coordinates and in a few mins you have a 360 degree photo-view point thingy of that spot! How cool is that? This is the view from my camp in Stelhead St Helens. Go to the Avatrian Peek 360 site and try one for yourself!
