Game of the Week: April 8-14 (Minecraft)



The game of the week for April 8-14 is Minecraft. If you are interested in playing with x360a members, feel free to post in this thread and/or just drop into a game throughout the week. Staff members will be creating rooms off and on during the week, but feel free to create your own x360a room and set it to open.

These will all be co-op games so grab a friend or come meet new friends and let's go build something!

If you plan on hosting a session, please post in this thread so that people can join you! If you are joining a session, make sure you tell the host you are from x360a.

Hmmm... I might have to pick up Minecraft. I understand it is quite good and this may provide the kick in the pants that I need to get it started.

If anyone wants to pop some of the difficult cheevos send me a message on xbl mentioning the site and the game. I'd be glad to help out with those but not likely going to have the time to join in the parties

I'm interested in this though I've experienced quite hefty lag in games with more than 3 players before (May or may not have been poor internet on the hosts part but either way).

I've gotten severe lag with just one other person. It mostly happens if something is lit on fire, TNT explodes, or some redstone device is on a loop.

I hosted a room with 6 and had zero lag for anyone. I have a 50/10 connection, which probably helps.

...My game has lagged on me when I was the only one playing and worked perfectly other times with 2-3 people playing. I'm sure part of the lag issue has to do with the host's connection speeds but the servers also come into play there.

Yeah the friend that hosted didn't have the best internet, it's definitely host dependent.

I'll be able to host a room for this! I'll try to keep it open a lot and when I don't feel like building I'll keep the world open and just invite people who ask while I just do something else around the house.

Actually, wow, this is in the middle of two tournaments. I'm going to be busy! I might actually hook up my second console for this.

I'd love to play some, I can probably host if needed and I do also have a 500ft minecart track and saddles if any of those achievements would be needed!

I was playing with a friend and was getting a lot of lag. But he also has a bad internet connection. Last night I played with another friend (who has better internet connection) and there was no lag at all

I was also going to wait until retail version. I play all the time on PC but mainly with all kinds of mods like Tekkit or Feed the Beast, plus I hate the default texture pack.

We should do this one again next month or something. Also, I completely forgot about the RDR week, sorry about that guys.

I can vouch for this. Troy made this very easy for me. And also, finally a game I can join in with!

Anybody want to play some minecraft with me for a few hours?

Just send me a message over live if you do, my friends list is full atm.

I got 2 worlds ready to go a super flat and a regular randomly generated world dedicated for this. I have a little less than 3 hours before I have to go play Gears 2 with some friends

Shouldn't it be someone with a pretty good internet connection though? Every time I seem to host a lobby the other person lags out. And that's with only one other person, never mind a full lobby. That's the reason I nominated you. You said you've hosted a lobby with six people and not had any lag.

Um, yeah. If your internet connection is crap, don't bother hosting.

Any chance you could play during a week day morning? I'm on eastern standard time (US)
