My 5 year old is obsessed with this game. He doesn't play it but watches YouTube vids of other people playing it.

What is the deal with this game? Do you have to buy it or can it be downloaded?

You have to buy it from minecraft.net, then you download it.

Cheers mate, I have just checked and I can buy it for 17.95. I assume this is all I would ever have to pay? There are no extra charges later on down the line?

Once you've bought it you won't have to pay again, there's free updates every so often, the next one will probably be out early March

In anticipation of the game tomorrow, I have decided to build my own Selhurst Park. I've only built the pitch and Holmesdale after about 8 hours but should be pretty sweet when it's all done.

One more question.

My boy Dougie is 6 today and I am going to download this for him. Do I need to purchase it on the computer that he will be using or can I buy it on any computer then download it later on when I am home.

Also how does it work? Will he be able to play this on any computer by logging on or just the computer it has been downloaded on?

Once purchased, you just have to go on to minecraft.net and download the launcher, can be used on any computer. You just log in to the launcher and play basically, pretty simple.

I am struggling to get mods to work; can someone explain how in simple English? I have tried watching various Youtube "explanations" but teenage Americans aren't particularly helpful.

I have downloaded a couple of mod .zip files but can't get the game to use them; Forge seems to load ok but the 3 Forge mods are the only ones i can see from the Minecraft 'mods' button. I tried using Magic Launcher but this just the same.

Help! make me a hero with my 8 year old son!

Since I got this game for my little boy I have found the whole culture that exists around it to be fascinating. For something that is effectively one great big on-line lego set it is incredible how popular it is and I have been impressed by the ethos that seemed to exist in that you bought the game for a fixed price and they did not seem to then try and milk anymore cash out of you with up-grades and so on.


It will be interesting to see how Microsoft handle the game from now on and I sense that if they get heavy handed over things such as copy right issues on the people who make the videos on You Tube (even though having been bombarded by their annoying commentaries due to my little boy watching them on a daily basis I could quite happily murder several of them) then the backlash could be interesting.

All in all though a fascinating tale along with proof that game play still matters far more than all the best graphics in the world.

$2.5 billion or whatever obscene amount they paid for it will take a lot of time to recover using the current business method.
Microsoft must commercialize the **** out of it to get anywhere near recouping that investment surely?

I was thinking about that and it is a puzzle. Perhaps they might only include newer versions of Minecraft with up-dated Windows as a way of having pressure put on parents to go with that ?

It does seem a massive amount of money but the sheer scale of the impact this game has had on kids I think is sometimes under estimated because a lot of it has flown under the conventional publisher dominated radar when it comes to computer games.

My son loves minecraft and a big part of that enjoyment is watching the youtube videos. Not only are they entertaining, but he picks up loads of tips from there. The amateur nature of those videos and the humour of the individuals concerned is definitely part of the appeal.

When he read the Microsoft news he was immediately concerned that such a takeover could spoil the ethos/appeal of minecraft....and a heavy handed approach to copyright issues could certainly do that v quickly. Hopefully they realise that, otherwise their own investment could go down the tubes too.
