This starts out with a real banger of calling redstone, "red dust." So that's great.

This is what you want to take issue with? Perhaps you're just having a bad day.

I take issue with the fact that Austin insists that "red dust" comes from "redstone," after Vinny corrects himself. In fact, "dust" hasn't been referred to in the naming since Alpha 1.0.4. At this point, its purely a colloquial reference to redstone itself. So its crazy to me that you would mess up and call it red dust, when the game never explicitly refers to it as such.

Edit: Ultimately I quit about 4 minutes in because I realized that I needed this game to be treated with a modicum of respect. An ample supply that GB East simply cannot provide to any game.

I honestly can't tell if this is a serious comment or not.

Woah, dude. Is everything ok?

Minecraft is serious business you guys. Like, real serious business.

It's a game I enjoyed playing quite a bit. Its not my favorite game of all time, but by no means my least. If I want something other than the coverage GB is giving to it, and choose to look elsewhere, why is that a problem? Am I now inexorably chained to Giant Bomb, unable to decide that their coverage of a particular game isn't for me? Am I barred from ever seeking out a different opinion from a different place? Isn't GB a website about understanding the review's opinions and basing your understand off of that? Can I not look for a reviewer who will cover this game with an opinion similar to mine, so that I can get a full and valuable understanding of this game?

People are weirded out by the fact that the trigger point for your passive-aggressiveness seems to be a fairly minor thing about red dust, which seems so extremely specific that your reaction to someone for whom Minecraft isn't second nature seems excessive.

Granted: a) I haven't played Minecraft enough to know whether something actually is a big deal there and b) Giant Bomb had me exasperated multiple times by being plain wrong on something (hell, from what I've read in the comments, it's probably good that I didn't watch a single episode of Metal Gear Scanlon), but all in all, I too think your post sounds totally ridiculous. Care to elaborate what in those opening 4 minutes made you so angry?

@gorillamopena, @mems1224: Okay, what the FUCK happened to Spike Lee after Inside Man?

That was him? Hunh, I really liked Inside Man (or at least remember liking it).

You might remember correctly - Inside Man is a great film. Lee only directed and he was hired to do the job, but his style is and influence is visible in the final product.

It's a real fucking shame that the guy who directed this, Do the Right Thing, Jungle Fever and 25th Hour is now doing stuff like the Oldboy remake or Miracle at St. Anna. Sure, he made stinkers like Bamboozled or She Hate Me before, but damn, at least 25th Hour got made in between those fuckers. The thought of the dude delivering a good movie now is just alien to me.
