As a follow-up to my last post, if anybody's interested, I made a video about the first day in Minecraft. Yeah, I know there are tons of videos out like this already but I wanted to try my own hand at it, with the intention of possibly turning it into a Let's Play-like series if people are interested.

The video itself is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJtXSIgeKvw . I apologise for the bad voice recording here; at some point I'll probably use a proper recording setup, once I can actually do so.

The video is public, which makes me kinda nervous; although I'm more confident that my voice sounds good, I'm still not really sure. And of course, we're talking about YouTube comments here, so there are going to be harsh comments, I'm sure. I... really don't know how I'll take that, but we'll see.

Anyway, let me know what you think. :)

(also, if you're curious, I have other Minecraft videos on my channel, but they're all short and demonstrate various peculiarities of multiplayer, for the most part, and don't have my voice on. Go check them out if you want to. :))

I'd been meaning to look at Minecraft for a while, and the imminent price increase finally persuaded me to take the plunge. I'm not entirely sure what I make of it yet, but it's definitely interesting.

I'd managed to find the wiki and the tutorial there on surviving the first day before you posted this, but seeing it in action was nice as a way of reassuring me that I wasn't doing anything hopelessly daft.

I've mined out my base to be a fairly decent size now, and have a workbench, forge and chest, many torches, stairs, a painting, and a front door. I also found some iron while expanding my base, so I have an iron pickaxe now as well.

The biggest problem I'm having at the moment is creepers, which have a nasty habit of exploding on me every time I try to leave my base, which doesn't lead to happy fun times, especially since the explosions also have a habit of taking out my base's exterior wall and door, necessitating a rebuilding job. Any tips on how to stop this from happening?

Eeee, Minecraft! <33

I think you sound good.
[And your base looks awesome by the way.]

I had never heard of Minecraft until I read this journal so I downloaded it and it seems very addictive. One thing though, I had a go at multiplayer and it's quite annoying that you can spend hours building something only for someone to come along with some TNT and blow it up in seconds.
