Enough Is Enough

I am getting tired of reading headlines regarding Kinect Hacks and ANYTHING to do with Minecraft. Yeah there are one or two decent hacks, but most are arse, being nothing more than 3D video effects. I think the work these people are doing is great but there really isn't anything worth writing about. However read a gaming news site of blog and you would think these people had discovered the cure to malaria. 
  
 None of these are remotely interesting or useful. 

  

Then there is Minecraft. Oh boy. This 'game' is interesting, sorry, was interesting. I think the gaming press has gone way overboard with it's exuding of love and admiration for this 'game'. There are one or two things that people have done  tha are awesome (ie the 16 bit ALU) . Then it turned out most of the truly awesome stuff was designed in a CAD program.

   
I can't wait until coverage moves on to all the awesome games coming out this year.

Stories relating to either of those things really one come up about once a month.
 
Also don't read things relating to them if they disinterest you so much.

We need to turn this into a quote tree.

They arnt...I have not seen a kinect hack headline in ages. And minecraft headlines are well...they sort of only where around when Minecraft had that super surge right before its beta phase. And if he is talking about video suggestions on youtube then that just means he IS looking for that kind of stuff and youtube is suggesting more.

Apparently quote trees are against the rules now. Unless they never went through with it.

Oh hey, that minecraft video. I love that thing, I'm so glad one of the gaming sites I follow pointed that out to me.

Thanks for posting those videos; they kicked ass. I'm worried this might be considered youtube spam, though :/

Minecraft is kickass. If you don't like it, go cry about it.

Just because Kinect hacks don't seem useful now to a person who's got nothing to do with software creation doesn't mean that it's not the kind of tech that will appear in better stuff later. That's like saying back in the early 90s that the internet wasn't useful because it was just a bunch of text pages and crudely animated gif files.
 
Oh, and I think a bunch of those hacks are pretty cool.

pretty cool to see that. i barely understood a lot of the minecraft thing. pretty crazy. i don't hear a lot of kinect and minecraft stories in a while. minecraft is just an amazing game because of how much stuff you can build in that game.

I'm so sick of Minecraft. Every single day I walk into my programming class, a good third of the class is playing Minecraft or making lame jokes about Minecraft. They're all fat and smell like smoke and sweat. It is among the worst of things.

Those Kinect hacks were actually kind of cool.
