Should You Buy Minecraft?

Minecraft developer Marcus Persson and a couple people from TigSource are the core people behind this cheaply made indie game. Developer Persson quit his job as a game developer to make indie games and this was what came out of it. This game has a vast amount of open space and is one of the most unique games I have played. Not like most games Minecraft’s main objective is to create and design your own home and create unique places and fight off enemies. This game is still in Beta so it isn’t fully finished but for game not fully finished it is really good.

The creative style of the game is the most terrific part because you’re able to make environments that are straight from your imagination. You can create villages your own city, caves, and I have even seen people build huge towers just to blow them up. This game is just to show off your imagination and create your own world to adventure through. The game in my mind could be a little better and allow you to have people everywhere and be able to not just be a lone on this world.

Still the game is in BETA and won’t be done for a few years, it has been in the process since 2010. Many people would agree that a game that is perfected turns out to be perfect. Many games have been half done and know one wants to play them, a game takes every little detail into consideration. A great game isn’t just a story or how many things you can kill, it’s about what is fun. I consider Minecraft extremely fun and addictive, I don’t know what it is about this game that makes me want to pick it up every time. I give this game a high replay value and a great time consumer. You can go to the main website and start playing now buy purchasing the game or trying out the classic version, for free. So go out and enjoy the world of Minecraft.

Lights Siberia

Have you been searching for something new and original to listen to lately? Does everything on the radio sound the same and leave you hanging? If you answered yes to the previous questions, don’t worry the search is over. Canadian electropop star Lights recently released her second album, Siberia, and the sound is bigger and better than before.

Even if you are not familiar with Lights, this album is a great way to get introduced to her unique sound. It begins with title track, Siberia, and it immediately sets the album up for success. Her vocals are light and almost ghost-like along with lyrics that will get stuck in your head (in a good way). Lights also incorporates dubstep on a few tracks. At first, I thought this would affect her soft vocals, but it adds an element of surprise. Siberia has several tracks that are worth mentioning; for example, Toes, Banner, And Counting…, and Peace Sign. Each of these songs has a good beat, powerful lyrics, and conveys an emotion.

Not all artists are lucky enough to produce an album that has something for everyone. This album is pop, electro, indie pop, dubstep, and it also features rap. I highly recommend purchasing Siberia on iTunes so you can experience it for yourself.

All About Us

The new song All About Us by He Is We, featuring Owl City, is well, a love song. However, it has more to offer than just being a cute love song. He Is We is an indie group that I haven’t listened to before, and I was impressed with this. Adding in the more familiar voice of Owl City just added a bonus to what could have already been a good song. Their voices go so well together!

So, maybe you’re not convinced by a love song. The video is very powerful. Not only is it beautiful, literally! The visual aspect of it is wonderful. The scenery, and backgrounds are remarkable. The video has a deeper more beautiful and unexpected meaning. It’s sweet and emotional, showing two overly adorable lovers. The twist is that the girl had cancer, and by the end of the video has lost her hair from chemotherapy. The boy is staying with her, taking her out, and even gives a ring.

After listening to the song, and putting it with the video, it’s given it a deeper meaning. It made me smile, and feel. Also, now I’m more curious about the group He Is We and am actually going to look them up on iTunes right now. You can listen and buy All About Us on iTunes!
