Minecraft Review – LEGO for Adults without the pain of stepping on the bricks

Well Minecraft is, as of last November, officially a game and as such it seems that other gaming websites used this as the perfect opportunity to review it. We did consider jumping on this particular bandwagon but don’t say MMGaming is no different to other Gaming websites because we are only doing it now… With absolutely no reason to whatsoever. Okay honestly we did mean to post this review way-back-when Minecraft first became a game but due to a combination of laziness and no other opportunity to do so we are only posting it now. So welcome to world’s laziest review of the world’s biggest “Indie” game Minecraft. And those quotation marks are there because Mojang had, even prior to Minecraft’s “release”, sold over 4 million copies… which is more than a fair few big, mainstream games I could care to mention.

Diablo III – First Impressions

 

With the open beta now finished the release date could not come sooner. For those of you that managed to get a taste of the beta you probably feel the same way, but for those that didn’t get around to playing it I’m here to help. My opinion should be taken with a pinch of salt as I haven’t actually played either of the previous games. With this is mind I won’t be able to make any comparisons to the previous games. Without further delay I bring to you my impressions of Diablo III. Continue reading

Gaming BAFTA’s Stream

You might want to head over to Bafta.org as right now the Gaming BAFTA’s are taking place. Presented by international funny man Dara O’Brien (also one of my favourite comedians) it’s being streamed live. Even as I speak Notch himself is walking onto the stage to pick up a special award for Minecraft. Aaaah… What a legend…

I wonder just how many of the choices they make I’ll agree with, after all they should be paying extra special attention to MMGaming’s opinions and thoughts. But yeah, get over there an enjoy it!

Skyrim better get Best Game…

EDIT: You can also check out the Twitter feed for updates and for who has won what award.

 

Game BAFTA’s

The European chain of stores Game is currently running a British Academy Video games Awards, or BAVTA! Well actually it’s called a BAFTA… but the point stands. Anyway, as part of this they have a massive online poll running to choose what is going to be the Game of the Year of 2011. Anyone can vote in this (or at least anyone in the UK) and you can vote right now at the BAFTA page. So a video game of the year chosen by the people!

I’m already looking forward to the outcome!

Game of Thrones: Riverspring Trailer

The title here says it all. It’s a trailer for the upcoming Game of Thrones RPG and it introduces a city called Riverspring which is ruled over by a family called the Sarwycks.

Wait hang on, they’ve actually decided to introduce MORE characters to the Song of Ice and Fire? And a whole town that DOESN’T appear on any maps of Westeros so far. I would’ve thought that with hundreds of characters who aren’t main characters in the books to choose from and a whole world of detailed cities and towns, they wouldn’t need to create a whole new town and family House for it.

Happy Winter-een-Mas from MMGaming!

As defined by Urban Dictionary: Winter-een-Mas is a gamer’s holiday. The Winter-een-Mas season lasts all of January, but the holiday is the last week of January, January 25-31. It emphasizes the companionship of gamers. However, gift-giving is not recommended, as it may ruin the holiday spirit. Small, handmade gifts are quite alright, though.

Celebrate Winter-een-mas by playing videogames with your friends, by wearing interesting gaming clothing/accesories, and especially by writing letters of thanks to those wonderful developers who make the games!

Save File Locations

I’m not so full of it and arrogant to believe that a great many people will pay attention to me and my opinions. And certainly not big, multi-national corporations. But they should! And so should you!

But arrogance aside, a specific article from Rock, Paper, Shotgun (yeah, them again!) caught my eye the other day that I feel ought to be spread about the internet in so many forms until even the biggest gaming companies sit up and listen.
