Gaming Day, Everyday!

I can’t believe that it’s been more than a year since our last post…and that was just a post telling you all about our newest blog.

Well here we are again, telling the world that we have started yet another blog. A new blog that, in my opinion, shows the most promise of all of our others thus far.

Tyler and I are still working together and on this blog we will be talking about all videogames, not just Minecraft. We’ll write reviews for games, discuss issues in today’s gaming culture, talk about the latest in gaming news, and more!

So far we have discussed the problems in the modern Resident Evil series and we also went over E3 and gave a summary of all the great games and news revealed there.

We would love it if you stopped by and checked out our latest blog. And if you like it, you can follow us and/or like our Facebook page! Thanks for being awesome and checking out The Block Brothers. Now go be even more awesome and check out…

Minecraft News — January 2013

Hey everyone! It’s been a while. I’m sorry for that, but I have enjoyed this break from the blog. I have also been tasked with designing a blog for my school newspaper which I will be writing for soon, so I haven’t had much time or motivation to do a post.

I hope we can start on posts again soon, but no guarantees.

Anyway, let’s talk about some Minecraft news from this month (news posts are generally posted on a weekly basis, but since we haven’t had one in a while, we are covering all of this month so far).

Most of the news is snapshots, snapshots, and more snapshots. So let’s talk about them.


You probably know most of this stuff by now, so I’ll just cover the main additions.

  • Redstone Comparator
  • Daylight sensor
  • Hopper
  • Trapped chest
  • Weighted pressure plates
  • Block of Redstone
  • Nether Quartz
  • Nether brick (item) and crafting recipe for Nether Brick block
  • Inventory changes

This snapshot did not include as many additions as the previous one, for the most part it improved the previous additions (such as the Hopper, Comparator, etc).

  • Improvements to texture packs
  • New death messages
  • Quartz blocks
  • Activator rail
  • Minecart with TNT

  • Texture pack button (previously on the main menu) moved to Options, allowing players to change texture packs in-game.
  • More difficult Zombies/Skeletons (based on difficulty)
  • Minecart with Hopper
  • Dropper
  • Improvements to command blocks, detector rails, Quartz blocks, Minecart w/ TNT, and infinite water sources.

It seems like we may have an update for the Pocket Edition within the next couple weeks. What will be added in 0.5.1?

Gravity will be added for Sand and Gravel. Stairs, slabs, and clouds will also make their debut.

The Pocket Edition is starting to move up in the world of Minecraft. Of course it may never reach the level that the PC and Xbox versions are at due to hand held device performance limitations. Sad but true.

That’s all folks. Thanks for reading and Happy Mining!
