Meanwhile, I logged into my server and found a sky high railway connecting Tye’s lighthouse with Andy’s treehouse, and an odd contraption Andy built that I must ask him about because a nearby sign says you should “insert arrows here”. Cool.

Minecraft: Gargamel

  1. Launch Minecraft and make sure you update to the 1.3 beta.
  2. Go into the single player menu and create a new world. Use “gargamel” as the seed.
  3. Get out of the dark cave (exit high up on the left) and go, ‘Wow!’

I’m not going to post screenshots, even though I want to. Don’t want to spoil the surprise! More seeds can be found here and I found this one here.

Minecraft 1.3, with beds

Well, they say Minecraft is addictive. Now you can lie down while you deal with your addiction. Version 1.3 includes beds and I read somewhere that you’ll respawn in the last bed you’ve slept in but don’t quote me on that! If you’ve had Minecraft open on your machine for some time make sure you close and reopen it to update the client.

Bukkit hasn’t been updated yet so warps and the /home function on the Minecraft server don’t work.

Once the 1.3 update has quietened down and I know all plugins are ok I’m tempted to enable mobs and deop everyone to make things more interesting. Make sure your building is well lit and defensible!

The Best Game Intro

I think the intro to the original Left 4 Dead has to rate as one of the best game intros I’ve ever seen. Great stuff.

Unfortunately when I play the game I can’t hear any sound. Bah.

Update! Someone mentioned on Twitter that Dead Island had a better intro. Strictly speaking, it’s a trailer but boy does it pull at your heart strings. F*cked up. Check it below but don’t click play if there are kids around. After you’ve watched the trailer, check out this IGN edit that plays the trailer in reverse.

Sony bans PS3 jailbreak users

If you’ve jailbroken your PS3 then you probably shouldn’t go online until you reverse the jailbreak. Sony has started banning users who use jailbroken PS3 consoles online! The ban is permanent and worldwide.

you cannot use the PlayStation Network with this account (8002a227).

In the old days it was only Microsoft who were banning their users en-masse but now Sony have to do it as well. I wonder if Nintendo will ever do the same thing?
