Asteroid 5251

Hello fellow gamers! Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be documenting my journey through this little MineCraft adventure map called Asteroid 5251. Sounds epic, right? It is, but I’m getting ahead of myself.  As part of our weekly “Game On!” we’re playing through an Adventure map.  But we only have one or two maps, so I went off in search of more.

What is the goal of Minecraft?

Minecraft is a sandbox game, and although the latest release brought achievements to the game, it still has essentially no structure, you’re free to do whatever you want. Because of this, players are free set there own goals of what they want to achieve with the game, and some of the things people have done are breathtaking! Here’s my top 10 favourite Minecraft ‘creations’, which can serve as inspiration to anyone starting out with the game:

Get lost!

Minecrafter and Stack Exchanger Fbrereto needed some Tips for not getting lost underground? because he found compasses of no use if the cave extended underneath the spawn or was too far away to show any change. A whole host of suggestion were given, so much so that we thought it deserved blog post. So in order of up-votes: How do you avoid getting lost? more »

Small World…Not Quite!

This post is based on our Gaming Question of the Week #1!

You may have heard that Minecraft can theoretically generate a map 8x the size of Earth. Is that really possible? Our very own Jim wondered just that.
