The Minecraft Documentary

December 18th, 2012

I’m really looking forward to seeing this film. It premieres on December 22nd on Xbox Live and will be available on demand after.

Where were you when you first heard about Minecraft? I was reading a gaming site and saw an article about an indie game making $200K in one weekend. I originally laughed at the low-res appearance of the game but decided to give it a try. I bought the alpha version. I was heavily hooked for at least 6 months after that and still play some today. I also got to introduce a lot of others to the experience, some of those people are still playing every chance they get.

Minecraft has become a permanent part of gaming culture.

Ditching Pay TV

January 9th, 2011

If you can live without all the channels, off-air Digital TV is just as great looking as HD Cable or Satellite service. For re-runs of TV series and movies, add a streaming Netflix account and you have a nice, and cheaper, substitute. Using Windows Media Center (which is included in Windows 7) and an Xbox360 on your TV will still give you a cable-like experience with TV listings, show recording, and more. Your digital music collection and DVDs (if ripped) can also be streamed throughout your home. Enough people have asked me about what it takes so I made a quick and dirty video about it.

TRON LEGACY new trailer. I’m really looking foward to this one.
