  • ive been playing this obsessively for the past 5 hours, im starting to get a reaaly sore wrist but its amazing! its pretty much as good as the pc version but i am actually considering buying an android tablet to play it just because they make it so much easier to get the texture packs and mods installed, not gonna get rid of my mini retina or anything, its still by baby, but honestly i could handle having both, and the galaxy tab s is about to come out, they each have their pros and cons i guess.

  • Just went on minecraft when the update happened and I am not a happy customer, because it has deleted a very large castle that I had spent hours on building it, and it said that I could continue it as usual but it's not like that! Very annoyed!!
