Former / Inactive Gaming Journo covering (generally) MMO's for multiple online outlets. Now I'm an elementary school computer science teacher and just a dude playing games.

I have been having a great time participating in the hour of code with my students. I teach over 300 kids from grade two through eight and they have been incredibly engaged and active. I paused my entire technology studies curriculum for the week to make sure every one of my classes was able to participate. They love the intro video I play and I always tend to point out who Gabe is because some of the older kids would know some of Valve’s games. Its been a phenomenal experience.
Little disappointed this isn’t being released for PC, especially since a lot of the barriers in development have been removed between PC – Xbox One/PS4. Also considering the core market for MMO games is on the PC. I guess I wouldn’t be surprised to see it announced for PC before development ends.
I am really excited about this and decided to do the minimum amount to get in the Alpha. Love voxel games.
There is also a stark difference between having the balls to do something at all, even if you screw up things from time to time, and doing nothing. Good lord, if we expected people to stick their necks out and do something original only if they 100% knew they would be right, we’d still be sitting in caves trying to figure out how to light a fire without the chance of burning ourselves.
Kinda pisses me off that most gamers complain about lack of choice, creativity, inspiration, and originality and then shit on a company that is trying to do something different.
