Make it happen, Duders! Don't make me beg. I mean, I would beg if necessary, but can't we just agree it would be an awesome TNT?

Oh, and fuck Starhawk!

#2 Edited by AlmostSwedish (572 posts) -

Agreed.

Oh, imagine the griefing.

#3 Posted by zombie2011 (4982 posts) -

I'd rather watch them mess around in Minecraft then play Starhawk.

#4 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11275 posts) -

I think the thing to do would be to have Minecraft as a secondary thing that they check up with every once in a while, or have as a secondary/smaller view. But I don't know if they have the ability to do something like that yet in the new office.

I brought this up when we were playing on the server earlier! Fuzzylongcat was there. KORTEX YOU PLAGIARIST.

Would you like to see them play in a new world or an already existing one?

Amazing idea. Or if they ever find another fun card game or board game to play this could be a great supplement (though, not cards against humanity again, for the love of...)

Didn't they already confirm this last week? I'm pretty sure they said that they would do both Starhawk and Minecraft, and since they seem to enjoy the latter, I'm sure it is a given..

I'm quite doubtful they will spend a large amount of time on Minecraft. I'm pretty sure they were joking about it last week.

#10 Posted by IAmNotBatman (654 posts) -

Yes we should.

#11 Posted by Winternet (8025 posts) -

I didn't want to fuel this, but Jeff's twitter: "There seems to be a growing contingent of people who want us to do Minecraft for TNT instead of Starhawk."

#12 Posted by BrockNRolla (1702 posts) -

I really want this to happen. A Minecraft TNT sounds infinitely more interesting than watching a third person shooter deathmatch.

Come on! The possibilities for shenanigans are endless! You can show another shooter any old week! Let's make Minecraft happen!

#13 Posted by bibamatt (1089 posts) -

Oh HELL YES. I don't usually watch TNT, but I can't think of much better than watching Giant Bomb duders creating Minecraft worlds live.

#14 Posted by murisan (1119 posts) -

Starhawk looks pretty boring to watch, honestly. I was looking at YouTube vids and it just looks.. lame.

#15 Edited by kindgineer (2767 posts) -

Even though I do not own a PS3, I would very much like to see Starhawk, but I would love to see Minecraft as well. Why not both?

EDIT: We need to get this post to the staff somehow so they understand that a lot of people would really like to see Minecraft on TNT.

Jeff and Brad are talking about it on Twitter! Keep this thread going and send them messages on Twitter. This is totally on there radar, but we've got to push for it!

#17 Posted by chilibean_3 (1655 posts) -

Since Starhawk is a PS3 game, it's not like anyone would show up for the TNT anyway. Maybe a 50/50 thing? I think our kind and wonderful Giant Bomb server owner should back up the world before the start of TNT and end the show by blowing up everything.

#18 Posted by Buscemi (1106 posts) -

I approve of this idea.

#19 Posted by JBG4 (420 posts) -

This sounds fantastic to me... I also want to see the SEGA Premium show that was mentioned in passing on ILM

#20 Posted by kortex (444 posts) -

I bet notch would make a cameo if the Guys contact him.

#21 Posted by insane_shadowblade85 (1471 posts) -

So, are we asking for the 360 version or the PC version? If it's the PC version then I'm totally down since it'll give me a reason to start it up again after half a year.

#22 Posted by kindgineer (2767 posts) -

@BrockNRolla: Can you link me their twitter accounts? I haven't used the service before, but I'll be willing to start to get this moving.

#23 Posted by Cheesebob (1243 posts) -

This sounds like a terrible idea.

Do it Giant Bomb!

#24 Posted by DoctorWelch (2774 posts) -

Something has gone terribly wrong if this isn't the TNT.

I think it would be hilarious though if they played the PC version.

#25 Posted by kortex (444 posts) -

@insane_shadowblade85: I would prefer PC but the XBox port being this weeks XBLA release...

#26 Posted by EuanDewar (5028 posts) -

I would totes magrotes turn up for a Minecraft TNT. Burn some shit, build some erotic structures.

If they're seriously considering this then we have to tell them to play the PC version! Or both so they can switch back and forth between the versions.

#28 Posted by Sayishere (1840 posts) -

Fuck star hawk, seriously

#29 Posted by murisan (1119 posts) -

Adding my 2c: If they play Minecraft, it'd be super silly to NOT play the PC version as we already know that Ryan owns it.

Don't start that. Let's focus on the 360 and leave it at that.

#31 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7617 posts) -

I hope it happens, seems like it could be hilariously fun to watch, especially after seeing Jeff's pyromania.

#32 Edited by Cyrisaurus (455 posts) -

TNT to me is about letting the community play with the GB crew.

with Starhawk, you can get a bunch of people playing competitively and having fun.

With Minecraft, you get a few dudes just walking around and stacking blocks for an hour and a half. There's no "Throwdown"

What you want is a longer QL. Howbout you ask for that instead?

Also, "fuck Starhawk!"? Seriously? Grow up.

#33 Posted by TEHMAXXORZ (1199 posts) -

@kortex: On the WM server/GB server there is a huge (literally, not figuratively) Giant Bomb logo.

#34 Posted by BrockNRolla (1702 posts) -

@ccampb89: I don't know how to direct you to general pages on twitter, so I'll just copy and paste the comments.

Jeff Gerstmann "There seems to be a growing contingent of people who want us to do Minecraft for TNT instead of Starhawk."

Brad Shoemaker "@jeffgerstmannMy castle is pretty into that idea."

But...but...*Flops to the ground like a toddler and sighs*

Okay ._.

#36 Posted by dabe (299 posts) -

Should have a fortress wars/source forts-esque match. Tricky, Jeff, Brad & Ryan get 15 (or some other arbitrary time) minutes to build a fort, we watch split-screen until the time limit with Vinny providing some Dead Island TNT style wizardry.

Then they fight to the death by destroying each others bases. I take Jeff and his mighty fire usage.

(Not sure if this is possible because I haven't a fucking clue about the inner workings of Minecraft but whatever)...

#37 Posted by kortex (444 posts) -

@TEHMAXXORZ: I know - It's majestic

#38 Posted by CornBREDX (5593 posts) -

It could be interesting I guess if they did it on the PC version. Well, hell either version is fine really. Just be careful, Jeff might set your server on fire. =P

#39 Posted by Hailinel (25179 posts) -

A Minecraft TNT sounds infinitely more entertaining than Starhawk.

YES.

In a sentence, exactly why we want this to happen.

#41 Posted by believer258 (11984 posts) -

I can't decide if this sounds really boring or really interesting. Do we want to watch a couple of guys shoot the shit while breaking and stacking virtual legos for an hour and a half?

#42 Posted by JoeyRavn (4992 posts) -

Minecraft PC? Fuck yeah. Minecraft 360? Weeeeeell...

#43 Posted by Iron_Tool (222 posts) -

Only if it ends with Brads castle being burned down!

I agree. While I admit that the PC version is superior, matchmaking would be a hell of a lot easier on XBLA. Besides, didn't they usually get Will and Norm to set up servers for TNT in the past?

#45 Posted by Tamaster92 (271 posts) -

Sounds like a great idea to me!

Do I really want to watch people blow shit up for an hour an a half?

I've no interest in watching a long multiplayer deathmatch. Any given week, some game comes out with that sort of scenario. Minecraft would be something unique.

With Starhawk, you get an hour and a half people going pew pew pew. With Minecraft, you get a huge sandbox world where they can do whatever they want, have competitions between teams, try to grief each other, etc and having fun.

See? I can play the oversimplification game too. But I shouldn't need to tell you this, because you're such a mature person, telling others to grow up. Right?

Leave the poor guy alone! He just wanted to feel important!
