I have been playing Minecraft.
It is pretty fun. And by pretty fun I mean "oh hello 2am, when did you happen?"
I made some character skins today. Possibly this is WORSE in terms of fiddly "just let me get THIS right and then I'll stop..." than regular minecraft.
I had been feeling intimidated about making my own skin, because the file they give you to work with looks like this:
But eventually I got tired of being Vincent Valentine, and they didn't have skins of any of the female FF characters I really liked (no Celes?). So I gathered my courage, and took someone's Terra skin and colored at it until it looked more like Shade and less like Terra.
Then Jay wanted a skin so I made one of Ammon~
He has a pretty bow.
But now my Shadey skin looks crappy compared to this one, so I went back and fiddled with it for hours to make it better. I even eventually sort of figured out how the second head layer works.
Anyway, just to confirm, in case you needed my own judgement on it, Minecraft is indeed awesome. However, I recommend you do not purchase it, even though it is an incredibly affordable $15, because you like having free time, don't you?
