Minecraft...How I Scooped Out Your Soul

I remember the first time I used a mod on Minecraft. I was building a library, and there was one particular section I wanted to build a room for technology. I decided to use Iron Blocks, because they have this really sleek look to them. Around a quarter of the way through, I realised what a serious project this was. See, that's the thing with Minecraft, even the simplest things seem difficult.

9 iron inglets to a block and it takes 1-2 coal to burn through 9 iron ore. My room was well over 50 blocks big. So that's over 450 inglets. Iron Veins come in around 2-6 blocks. This was a huge task for someone as lazy as me. But I was determined to do it. Why? Because when you build things with the effort you've put in, it somehow seems much more rewarding. Unfortunately, as I was spelunking through a cave and dropped into another pit of lava, I finally snapped. I got this.

I'm starting to feel my love for Minecraft return.

P.S Just to re-assure you, I don't actually have feelings for Minecraft.

Alright, let's try this again.

My name is Alex. I'm 15 and I hide in my dark corner of the internet writing a so-called "blog" here on Destructoid. I think far too critically of myself which has reflected on my personality, as I'm cyncical and highly critical of...well a lot of stuff.

Anyway, games. It was all about the GameBoy Advance when I was young, and have grown up on an unhealthly diet of portable gaming (GBA,DS,PSP), a recent introduction of console gaming , lots of fictional media, and yummy food.

I'm lazy and very day-dreamy, non-committal and kind of temperamental. Plus I get distracted easily...I'm really painting a rosy picture here aren't I? Still, if you stick around, (I'm hoping) you may find something of quality here, and who knows, I don't think I'm THAT bad, right...right?

So yeah, vidjo games.

Deus Ex Human Revolution
Batman Arkham City
Portal+Portal 2
Mafia II
Total War:Shogun 2
Rayman Advance
Pokemon Crystal
Jurassic Park:Operation Genesis
Super Mario 64
House Of Dead III

Also, I have twitter now, even though I now feel like a complete sell out. Follow me and see how uninteresting I can be.
