Adventures in Buying Minecraft

Rachel Mii Double JumpHappy Thursday!

Show of hands, who plays Minecraft? I know it may not be as popular right now, but it is a pretty big game, and Kris and I just downloaded it.


I’m sure most of you know by now that Kris and I have a soft spot for YouTubers. One of our favorite guys does a Let’s Play series of Minecraft Hardcore with six other YouTubers that we love to watch. There are a couple of seasons and they just announced that a new season if coming soon. We’re very excited!

We always wanted to download Minecraft, but we found it for the XBox 360 one day instead. We bought it for $20 and played it only a handful of times.

Now, our XBox broke and the game is stuck in there forever.

Either way, I wasn’t a huge fan of that version. Even though I had never played the game before, I think the controls were a bit much. I had a feeling the game would definitely be easier on the computer.

However, my laptop isn’t as young as it used to be. We bought a desktop a while ago and thought about downloading it on there. But we wanted to be able to play together so we held off for a bit.

Now that we have our new gaming laptop, we caved and downloaded the game.

We just got it a couple days ago so we’ve only played it about three times, but we love it and we wish we got it earlier.

We’re not very good at it and have no idea what we’re doing, but that’s part of the fun. We’ll figure it out eventually.

So, that’s our latest gaming craze at the moment. I’m sure we’ll be trying to play Minecraft whenever we get a spare moment.

Do you play Minecraft? If so, how do you like it?

Meet DeeJay – Gaming Wishlist

As many of you know, we recently bought a heavy-duty gaming laptop from a good friend of ours. Barely a year old, only used for six months, the Alienware computer was a steal. We’re definitely excited for all the new gaming possibilities it brings us!

A few months ago, we bought a desktop together mainly for gaming. But we ended up using it more so for blogging and graphics and The Sims. But now we can get as many games as we want!


Rather, as many games as the laptop will allow us, which will be a decent amount I’m sure, haha! On the top of my list of games is Batman: The Telltale Series, the visual novel, choose-your-own-adventure type of game. I’ve heard plenty of positive reviews about it, and I can’t wait until I can splurge and buy it!


The top one on my list is Stardew Valley. While I liked the Harvest Moon games (but couldn’t stick with them too long) I’ve heard so many great things about Stardew Valley. 

That sounds fun as well, especially since I am a Harvest Moon fan. I would love to give Overwatch a try as well. The online aspect would certainly be a throwback to when I played City of Heroes!

Overwatch definitely looks like a good one! Especially since we don’t play that type of game often. I also want to put Minecraft on there as well. I think we’d have a lot of fun with that.  

Minecraft would be awesome! We’ll be awful at it, haha! I would love to get into some MMORPGs like World of Warcraft or Warhammer again.

We’ll just have to get all the games from Steam. Plus more. Either way, we’re going to put this laptop to good use!
