I believe that Minecraft is the future of massive multiplayer games, and I'm surprised that none of the big developers/publishers have cottoned onto it yet.
They look at Minecraft and think its success is down to its business model, or to its blocky, retro charm.
It's down to the fact that you get out of it what you put into it.
With a MMORPG, there are pre-scripted quests. With Minecraft, you set the quests yourself or others.
User created content is the key. All you have to do is provide the players with the tools to build.
There are two types of gamer: wall builders and wall breakers.
Wall builders are the ones that spend an age in an RTS game getting their base just right. They play SimCity and act as Dungeon Master during an RPG.
Wall breakers are the type to follow the mission brief. They get set a quest and they follow it. They're the Call of Duty crowd and they're never more happy than when

Absolute logical proof that god doesn't existBear with me, this is kind of complicated:Absolute logical proof that god doesn't exist3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A. God is, by definition, illogical.
Therefore B. God can not (and does not) exist.
Wow, mind blowing huh? It's just so involved and complex. And it assumes so many premises! (It assumes one premise) But I assure you, the logic is perfectly valid and irrefutable.
Now, while the logic is perfect and irrefutable, you could possibly argue with the premise (Anybody have a definition of a god that is not illogical? If you do, then please do share.), but provided A, then B. God can not and does not exist. If A. is true, B. is true. If A. is not true, B. may or may not be true.
If you have an alternative definition of a god which isn't illogical, I would:
1. Like to shake your hand. You are a very rare breed: a logical theist. I can count on one hand how many I have met.
2. Be happy to have a civil and logical conversation with you on the matter.

[Giveaway details at the bottom]
So, I have been seeing a lot of these guides, but let's be honest. They are either incredibly, incredibly long-term or simply don't work at all. All of these have points like "comment on things, be yourself, share your awesome", but let's be honest. That doesn't work.
No, I am here to show you how to break the lotus-eater machine behind short-term dA fame. I'll teach you to exploit the systems so dA will have a reason to fix them.
Yeah, I am writing this completely out of my own selfish desire to get dA's popularity system either broken and bended over a snooker table or fixed. So use these exploits while they still work. And I will be using these as means to spread the message. Because the algorithms dA use are borked and easily exploitable.

This one is the easiest one to pull of, and has a relatively low cost-per-watch ratio. 100 point

I've posted about this once before and while I'm very grateful I'm notified by people that look out for me, frankly every time I here this I'm less interested in sharing anything I do to be honest. I want to share with good people that deserve nice things.
Some people don't understand and wonder why would I care? Well lets start with taking credit for things that you didn't do. Most schools teach this stuff around 3rd grade in the form of plagiarism. If you don't know that word please google it. Removing some ones name and putting your own on something you didn't do is exactly like plagiarism no matter how innocent you think it is. It's why copy right laws exist and why dA provides a basic copyright when your work is uploaded. If I need to explain it further you should close your dA account today fo

Being Critical =/= HateLooks like I need to remind people about this again, as yesterday I got several comments in a row from people who assumed that me being critical about something automatically translated into me outright hating it. I don't know how to stress this enough but that's not the case... You can be critical of stuff you like and not hate it. I don't know why our culture tries so hard to force everything into such black and white terms but come on guys, really... being critical and smart about what you love doesn't mean you hate it.Being Critical =/= Hate2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Take the Dragon's Crown comic, for example, in which I was critical of the Sorceress's design. From that someone hypothesized that I must HATE the game, and that's farthest from the truth. I know full well that Vanillaware is an amazing studio and they do fantastic work. One of my favorite games of theirs is Muramasa the Demon Blade. Dragon's Crown has scored really highly and it's most definitely worth your money to buy/download it if you can. BUT... I can still be

Fractal Art Week: Intro and ScheduleFractal Art WeekFractal Art Week: Intro and Schedule3 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello! Welcome to the Fractal Art week at projecteducate! My name is C-91 and I take care of the Fractal Art gallery as Community Volunteer.
What is a fractal?
A fractal is a natural phenomenon or a mathematical set that exhibits a repeating pattern that displays at every scale.Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Fractals are an intrinsic aspect of Nature, and can be found in a multitude of elements, such as plants...
...or fossils, just to name a few examples.
The beauty of Fractal Art lies not only in its close relationship with the laws of Nature, but also in its diversity: there are a lot of fractal softwares available on the Internet, and each and every of them generates a different kind of "style" (which eventually will be enriched by the a

US killed more with chemical weaponsWestern governments sure like to talk smack about various dictators abusing "their own" people with this or that. What kind of phrase is that anyway? Does it mean it would somehow be less wrong if the people being gassed were not "their own"? Every time I hear that, I cringe. I know a bit about what the US has done on that front, so I can discuss it below. I am quite sure Britain, France, and other "high horse" bullshitters have done their share.US killed more with chemical weapons2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To start, here is a nice list of what the US government has done to "their own" cattle (err, people) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unethical_human_experimentation_in_the_United_States This chilling list concludes with "As of 2007, not a single U.S. government researcher had been prosecuted for human experimentation, and many of the victims of U.S. government experiments have not received compensation, or in many cases, acknowledgment of what was done to them." I'm not a big conspiracy theorist, but these are only the acknowledged s
