Minecraft, DDoS Attacks

First off, Minecraft is incredible. It’s got a bit of a learning curve but it is absolutely wonderful. It is going to create a new genre. There are so many places this can be taken there WILL be a new genre started by this game. Secondly, you people who are participating in the DDoS attack are complete idiots. You have no idea what it takes to make a game, and your child-like bitching is screwing over other players, not the person working his ass off on Minecraft. Get off your jackass horses and stop it so we can play. More about the DDoS attack here.

    I had to go to wikipedia to see what it is. Looks like a snoozer to me but then I don’t care for Farmville either. I hope the attack stops just because there are already enough asshats around.

  2. i was trying to get on to my friends minecraft server all night, only to read via twitter about the ddos attacks. ridiculous.

    escapist is down… probably not a ddos attack. though it would be kind of funny.

    Its sales are incredible, but Minecraft is effectively a level design tool wrapped in a game package. Metaplace did that, and so did many other products before then. It’s an old genre that has never been effectively monetized until now.

    Haven’t heard much about the game, but hopefully the attack brings the game some publicity and therefore sales.

  5. Adraeus: I would argue that a genre doesn’t exist until it’s successful. I could try to create a poo-flinging genre, but if the game sucks and it never becomes successful, I’d be hesitant to call it that.
