PS4_Minecraft.jpgHas you may know I am a fan of Minecraft on my PS4.  While I haven’t played it in a while it is one of the those games that easy to pick up and play.  Taking about this time because there is a new mode/s coming to the console versions of the game.  It will have special maps for deathmatch and mini games.  All for free.  Which they are calling Battle.   The best part is not only will it be online it all so will be four player splitscreen.  The update will be out some time in June.   You can read the official post > here.  Will be giving this a try and will report back.

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 2, 2016 by getbent57

PS4_Minecraft.jpgA few days ago got to try online co-op multiplayer in Minecraft on my PS4.  Have to say it worked great.  We were in creative mode.  That is the mode where you get unlimited blocks and every item to build with.  So we ended up building this huge and super long railway.   It started of at the very bottom of a cave.  Which was dug down to bed rock.  Worked its way around the cave up into the sky.  Where another guy built this spiral way into the sky.  Then it went down back.  Back up into the castle they other guy built.   It took minutes to go from one end to the other.   It was/is pretty crazy what you can do in the game.  If you can think it, it can be built.

Well worth the money

LEGO_Minecraft_The_First_NightEveryone knows LEGO’s are awesome and that Minecraft is just as awesome.  I am a big fan of playing Minecraft on my PS4.  Being an “adult”  some people think LEGO is only for kids.  Have all ways wanted to buy a few sets.  Because they are fun to put together.  I am thinking about buying LEGO Minecraft The First Night.  See at a local story they have two sets on sale.  So wanted to buy it right at moment.  But sadly had know room in my backpack.  Thinking I might go on my day off and buy it.  In the mean time seen this video > here a while back. Uses this set in a stop motion video which is pretty funny.

PS4 Minecraft Split Screen Multiplayer

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , on September 2, 2015 by getbent57

PS4_Minecraft.jpgHave enjoyed playing the PS4 version of Minecraft off and on for many months now.  The other night a few of us decided to give split screen multiplayer a try.  Reading the screen says it is easy all you have to do is press the options button the the controller.  That worked but the you need to sign in the PSN or create a new account.  There is an option to play as a guest but that didn’t work for some reason.  So ended up sign in under my PSN name on my friends PS4.  Then it worked great.

The game plays just the same as single player.  The only difference was it was  harder to read the inventory screen.  It was blast playing together.  We decided to build a huge bridge in the sky.  Fell to our deaths or near death a bunch of times.  But it was still fun.  Plan to do it again sometime and see how much crazy we can built the bride.

Minecraft Console Update

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on July 6, 2015 by getbent57

PS4_Minecraft.jpgHave been playing Minecraft on my PS4 off and on since January (2015).  This is an awesome game.  What I like about it is you can go at your own pace.  It can be anything you want to be.  You can play it like an action adventure, go exploring,  build what every you want or do some farming.  Or any combination of that.  Back on July 1, 2015 they put out a new update for all console versions of the game.  It bring features that are all ready in the PC version.  The feature that stands out to me is being able to change, difficulty, time, weather and more with in the game session.  Have not tried any of this out yet.  But have downloaded it.  You can read all about the update > here.  Below is text is copied right from their site.

  • Offended by mountains and caverns? Worry not, strange crafter, because now you have the option to customise your super flat worlds so they’re only as vertical as you desire.
  • New blocks! Oak, Spruce, Birch, and Jungle wood types. Fences, Gates, and Doors! Create the log cabin of your dreams with 1.17/TU25/CU14 .
  • A heap of new game options! Change the game mode, difficulty, time, player spawn position, ambient cave sounds, and weather without leaving your game session. Very handy.
  • Classic crafting! Now console players get to craft items just like their PC buddies on Java Minecraft. Some players find this style of creation more satisfying. Check it out.
  • New stuff! Iron Trapdoors, Inverted Daylight Sensors, Book & Quills, and Stained Glass have arrived. Use them wisely, and for good, please.

Minecraft_The_Story_of_MojangIf you have seen a few of my posts the last few months you may know I have really liking Minecraft on my PS4.   This game has been very popular for many years.  I don’t know much about it other than its fun to play and there are all kinds of non-game products out there.  Remember hearing about the documentary,  Minecraft: The Story of Mojang a long while back.  It started off on a Kickstarter campaign.  It tells the story of the development of the gamer over a year it its official launch.  It premiered on Xbox Live on December 22, 2012.  After watching the trailer > here or below.  Wanted to watch this.  If you are interested to see this as well.  Found it on Archive.org > here.  My next day off plan to watch it.

Minecraft: Hangers

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , on March 3, 2015 by getbent57

Minecraft_HangersEven now again would see Minecraft toys and items.  Never understood the appeal. However  that has changed.  Now that I have/do play the PS4 version of the game.  A few days back while waiting in line at the checkout.  The checkout next to me had hockey cards and stuff like that.  Looked down and seen the Minecraft logo.  In the box there were this bind bag toys.  Picked one up so see what it was all about.  They were Minecraft Hangers.  It is a small plastic toy in a bind bag (don’t know what one is inside) with a key chain loop with a bigger plastic hanger hook on that.  The package says there are ten to collect.  I like this kind of things and am a fan of the game now.  So I bought two.  Ended up with a sheep and a sword.  Have to say they do look pretty cool.  Like they are right out of the game.  Just might go back and get some more.  Knowing my luck they will be all gone.  Which happed when I tried to get more of those Lego Simpsons bind bag toys.

Minecraft

PS4_MinecraftBack at the end of January 2015 bought the download version Minecraft for my PS4.  Got around to trying it out a few nights back.  Started with the opening basic tutorial.  Messed around with that for a bit.  Getting used to how the controls work as well as the crafting.  Wanted to know more about crafting things from my first house.  As you may know Minecraft is super popular so there are lots of great help out there.  Found one that is really good.  It’s called DigMinecraft.com.  Just how this site will come in handy.

Having a blast playing this game.  Being able to go at your own pace is very nice.  There is some thing very peaceful about the way the mining and placing blocks works.   Right now I am building a big castle/wall around my the small house I made the first night in the game.  Want to got exploring but need to get some better equipment first.  Some of the monsters that come out at night can be tough.

PS4 Minecraft

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 27, 2015 by getbent57

PS4_MinecraftThis past weekend (January 24 to 26) Sony had their 10% of in the PSN store.  This was the promotion they were having for the PSN being down at Christmas time.  The 10% came off when you when to check out as long as you put the special code in.  The code was easy to find it was right there in the store and all so on the PlayStation Blog.  If you were buying a lot of things this 10% would have a bigger impact.  For me only had $20 in the wallet.  So decided it was time to buy Minecraft.   So saved two dollars off with the 10% code.  Tried the PS3 version of Minecraft back in December 2013.  Have been thinking about getting myself a copy every since.  Haven’t tried the full game yet. Still working my way though Far Cry 4.
