Let’s take my favorite future peripheral with my favorite game of the past decade and put them together, shall we? Make matches? The marriage of these two is something I dream of. To build a world and then wander around in it as if you were really there. Minecraft already does terrible things to my time when I’m in the mood and I can’t imagine things getting any better when Mojang decides to induct this into their game proper.
While this is a mere mod at the moment – the Minecrift Mod for those googling – it seems to be very functional. Watching Vaecon describe the sensation is like someone describing first-time hallucinogenic drug use. Most notably, at two blocks high, he explains how small he feels, which is something I never quite imagined before. When you’re building the stuff, you kinda mentally manage the proportions, but when it gets too high, it sounds overwhelming. I imagine building taller structures, like the ones in our server, are going to be a very interesting exercise.
