Minecraft is a game rooted in a lot of my old favourites like Dungeon Keeper and Dwarf Fortress. Having tinkered around sufficiently to get a multiplayer server up and running I am proud to introduce a new Let’s Play Tekkit Adventure Series. Tekkit is a multiplayer mod pack for Minecraft enabling factory-style production, strip mining and advanced technologies, but I have a feeling this is going to end up with forced labour camps, catastrophic explosions and flying laser battles.
Cheeesetoastie (Sam, check out her blog) and myself (Sam) will be teaming up in an effort to get to the mythical ‘End’ of Minecraft – something neither of us, despite being Tekkit and Minecraft aficionados, have done. We’ll be building stuff up and blowing it down along the way, and it’s a video every day for the next week (start-up-special) so enjoy!
My name is Grumbl3dook and to start off this blog I thought I’d give you a quick roundup of what you’ll find here and why the hell you should even care. This blog will update with frequent highlights from the geekiest (and sometimes, I confess, nerdiest) corners of the web. I’ll be writing about whatever catches my attention but there will be plenty of:
Video Games (reviews, flash games, playthroughs, news, feuds)
Science (new tech, new ideas, funky math and explosions)
Humour (whatever made me laugh recently)
I’ve been meaning to do this for a while and recently got the inspiration I needed to start, so I’m getting off my lazy arse and writing. Well… Technically I may be remaining on my lazy arse, but the writing is getting done god dammit! I’m doing this because I’m passionate about the topics I’ll be covering and I want to know what the internet thinks about all the random thoughts I’ve got floating around inside my head. Hopefully you’ll find it interesting – I’m a lawyer/gamer (cf. Phoenix Wright), so if I can’t think of anything interesting to say here I’m pretty much screwed IRL.
Most of all I really hope you guys enjoy the site, and I’m looking forward to your thoughts on my humble offerings.
