Minecraft: Snapshot 15w31a and THE ENNNND of Your Wait

Two days ago Mojang released their first snapshot (and shortly after second and third) for Minecraft since they were bought by Microsoft in the Fall of last year. It has been a long, LONG time. It feels like it has almost been a year now (345 days according to the wiki). While the silence had me worried for a little bit there, Minecraft's upcoming 1.9 Battle Update has me so excited! Already with this first snapshot we have a few new things, and considering how long they've been silent, I'm sure there are PLENTY MORE to come. Look at Minecraft's Gamepedia wiki yourself and see the many potential upcoming shinies! "Potential" because they may not be able to do everything.

For those of you who aren't sure what a Minecraft snapshot is, it's basically an experimental build that can be downloaded and offers the chance to preview and test out some things that Mojang releases. It is by no means the entire upcoming update for Minecraft. The content is just released slowly in chunks and worked on slowly (or quickly with smaller updates).

So I chose to adventure into lands unknown to discover some of the new stuff that was uploaded. Of those things, many new shinies await us in The End. So I went to The End and had a grand old time!

Fallout 3: Explosives are Your Friend

THAT'S RIGHT, FOLKS! Grab that frag grenade and cuddle right with it. It's the only thing that'll keep you warm at night and mean it. Too much? Whilst playing through Fallout 3, I have discovered the true pleasure of throwing a grenade into a crowd of enemies, hearing them scream in horror, and watching it explode as it turns them into little super mutant bits. That's right! I've become a psychopath.

On a less crazy note, I had completely been ignoring the use of explosives in Fallout 3 until late last year. I didn't realize their true damage potential and thought of them as something annoying that I kept finding laying around.

It all began in Grayditch.

Updating update: The Movie

Greetings there!

I want to apologize for me not uploading anything in the recent months. I hit a block of sorts, but now that's all about to change! I give you:

That's right, folks! I started my own youtube channel. I plan to use it in tandem with my blog to give both clips that help explain further my points as well as have its own gameplay videos and footage. I am so excited! I thought I'd have to wait until I got a new computer, but it turns out that I don't!!! I love you Lappy the Laptop.

I'm definitely more nervous when I'm recording video, and I even forgot a few points in the introduction, but I know with time that will fade away. I can't wait to see what comes with this, and I'm hoping that it'll lead to plenty more content in the near future. I hope you all are ready! I'm about to hit you like a pokeball!
