@zabant: Christopher Tolkien is a stubborn person, but I think maybe he's better than the alternative, where a Warner-Brothers controlled Tolkien estate starts making sequels to the original books, tie-in TV shows, and so on.

Bill Watterson (creator of "Calvin and Hobbes") has a similar stance, and I know I will similarly lament the day when Watterson dies and some less picky relative sells to Disney for the inevitable CGI kids movie adaptation.

What are people afraid of Microsoft doing to minecraft?

Make it more BORINGER?

[SICK BURN LEVEL = EBOLA]

there's the ps3, ps4 and vita version of minecraft that probably wont be supported after this.

I imagine there is a contract in place that requires them to support the PlayStation versions to at least have parity with the Xbox One version.

Which is why I think they will want to make a Minecraft 2 and make is console exclusive to XBone, since that wouldn't be bound to the previous agreement.

@libb: I think it's more than just online haters, it's about Notch not really wanting to be responsible for the super-stressful duties that come with being in charge of a multi-million dollar company and all the headaches that come with it. He'd rather just kick back and tinker around.

I thought Tevis Thompson's blog was pretty on point. If you want games to be respected as an art form, stop being such babies and wanting everyone to treat them with "objective" kid gloves. And he's absolutely right that the "both sides are bad" message from Bioshock Infinite was a colossal cop-out.

Well call me gullible but it all looked 100% real to me. Even if it was mostly CGI, it's was definitely some next-level shit that had a lot of care put into it.

It looks like a hastily assembled Garry's Mod map.

That Elder Titan play could have been a lot tighter. You need to hang back, throw the spirit where it will catch the most people (luckily it has a really long cast range), and stomp as soon as the spirit is deployed; don't give them any time to react (unless someone else can zone them into its range). If you catch them, you need to ult right away too. Elder Titan has a decent debuff aura, but his basic reason for existence is that 3-step combo.

If used correctly, just the threat of it can deter enemy pushes for a long time, and punish them badly if they try to execute one. All this makes Elder Titan is one of the best anti-pushers in the game, but you need to stay alive first.

The spirit should also be spammed a lot during the early laning phase, not to stun anybody, but just to walk it through enemy heroes and creep waves, which can be pretty effective as harassment (it will damage units it passes through).
