I have decided to talk about some of the other things I enjoy besides books. I hope you think it’s interesting. Next time I will talk about computer programming, but this time I want to talk about Minecraft, which you might have heard of.
Minecraft is my favorite game. I spend a lot of my time with my dad’s laptop on rainy days. Minecraft is a computer game which is made completely of blocks! There are different modes, Creative and Survival and you can have either of these on Peaceful setting or Zombie mode. I prefer peaceful mode in Creative, because otherwise the zombies are destructive and they blow up my awesome stuff that I have built.
To give you an idea I have built houses, a ruined castle, a fountain, a maze and a mini-game and I have bred horses and built a Minecraft model of the riding stables where I go riding.
It’s awesome, I love it. My sister Beatrix likes it a litle bit and she has her one and only WORLD!!!
(Which I made for her). She likes her world. And Minecraft has texture packs that make the scenery look different and you can download mod packs. They add things like different articles (computers) animals (hamsters) etc
Sometimes you get special updates like at Halloween it adds pumpkins and skeleton faces, and at Christmas there were witches.
I got the Minecraft Annual for Christmas and that has lots of helpful and fun things too.
I also watch loads of Minecraft videos on youtube, my favourites are done by Stampy Longnose – he is funny and creative and gives me loads of ideas. I also like watching Minecraft parodies of songs, which are often funny and have a little Minecraft story to go with the song, for example Viva la Vida, which is about a Minecraft king who loses everything including his Queen and child and kingdom, and the zombies come to get him so he has to choose death by zombies eating his brains or to throw himself off the castle. Which will he choose? You’ll have to look it up to find out! (By the way, it’s not very scary).
Minecraft Hunger Games are when you have to get looted up and get the best loot you can and then you try and kill others in the map without getting killed yourself. You have a certain amount of time before the death match where you get teleported into an arena and you have to fight. My mum says that The Hunger Games books are too old for me, but the Minecraft game is fine.
Minecraft is like building my own little world where there are no rules to follow, except for no mining straight down unless you want to get stuck. And you learn about different elements and how they work together like obsidian and coal and iron etc.
My friends at school in France think that computer games are for boys, but I disagree. What do you think???
