Stolen Pixels #236: Breen Interviews Ken

Why would I want to do my job when I could be mining?

Why I am trying not to play MMOs, as my time will disappear! Actually, as the hypocrit I am, recently WoW is actually sounding more attractive, despite my life-long mockery of it and anyone that plays it. Aaaargh!

Runs on my stock model Dell laptop from this year. On whatever the default settings are.

Not on my stock model Dell from 3-5 years ago, unless I scale down the game to bare minimum.

Well, that does tell you that at least these shitty non-gaming PCs do update somewhat. Not enough to play much.

Looks like someone is obsessed lol

And that, friends, is how addiction is spread.

Man, I wuv Minecraft.
I play it on my Asus N10J netbook! It's only a 1.6 Ghz (Single core)! Though render distance is set to 'normal' and graphics are on 'fast'. But if I overclock it to 2.0 ghz (Which I do from time to time), it runs like a dream at normal render and 'fancy' graphics.

The point is: Minecraft is awesome.
And so is this comic.

Graphics aren't everything. When you take all that processing power from graphics and put it somewhere else, it doesn't make it run better, but it makes the game do things you'd never imagine.

Of course I'm probably just preaching to the choir, so I'll stop now.

Breen really needs a *detox" clinic for minecraft. Hint Hint* idea for futur comic.

I'm pretty certain that I would get addicted to minecradt pretty easily.

So Minecraft > COD?

It's not Breen I'm worried about...

My 5 year old PC can run Minecraft and a movie at the same time. I tell you, if I wasn't employed and had school I would lounge about all day watching movies and playing Minecraft.
Now I have to settle with only half an hour in the morning, before I actually wake up.

I guess we need an intervention.

Note* I was trying to say something witty, but could'nt come up with something.

The Cheezy One:
Why I am trying not to play it! Unfortunately, as the hypocrit I am, WoW is actually sounding more attractive everyday, despite my life-long mockery of it and anyone that plays it. Aaaargh!

......WoW?

World of Warcraft. Yes, I know. Shoot me now.

I have too many games that I don't have time to play, don't tempt me into trying Minecraft.

My minecraft keeps freezing, even though i can play Bioshock and such. Only reason i havent bought it yet. Besides, yknow, i dont wish for me to never leave the desk.....

Maybe im missing something, but are you assuming they are talking about WoW in the comic? Probs im just a dumbass and not getting what youre trying to say.

His kids are into it too. don't expect anything from him that isnt about minecraft for a long while...

You will be missed Shamus

Ah, I see the confusion now. No, I'm making a (tenuous) link between them as time absorbing MMOG's

Shouldnt we try and stop him?

You know so he wont stop doing comics and such becuase all he does is play minecraft?

Anyways...So that is how Minecraft is spread.

Every time I read these things, I have to try and surpress the urge... luckily, I still don't know what the website is! Hooray!

If anyone gives me a link, I will hunt them down.

I just subconsciously clicked the link. Ooh, there's a free version? Sounds goo- GET THIS THING OUT OF MY HEAD!

HankMan:
So Minecraft > COD?

Yep

Hmm... Let's see, is this about New Vegas?

No?

Not important enough. Back to fighting powder gangers!

a console version of minecraft would be pretty awesome
and would probably make alot of money
and be awesome

Everyone's addicted to Minecraft!

*goes back to playing Minecraft*

I just read Stolen Pixels while having a short food break from Minecraft.

Back to building infrastructure.

I just found out there are applications that generate maps of your Minecraft worlds, and now I'm sinking even more time into trying to explore the entire world so I get a complete map. Of course, then I found out worlds can take up approximately eight times the entire surface area of the Earth.

I will probably never see sunlight again.

So, so addictive. Now I just need to think of something to build to celebrate New Vegas coming out...

Breen just Mine your Citadal When you break It it gives you 2 cobolstone.

it slows down computers because of that beautiful beautiful dynamic lighting.

Yokai:

If you're playing Alpha, as far as I am aware the map size is limited only by your disk space. :)

Psh Shamus, my less than 2 years old laptop can't even run Minecraft on minimum settings. What I've seen of it is really cool, and I'm genuinely interested, but well that's life.
