Murray Chu AKA Mr. Scary Muffin is on a mission to get pumped up – but only if you help him raise a few bucks for Child’s Play Charity. WiNG’s in it for the cool prizes… though you can do it for philanthropy if you want!
Continuing his open world, time sink series of guides, Xiant enters the world of Minecraft, treading in the giant shoes of the Mighty Serge. Hopefully his take does the game some justice.
The 14th annual Independent Games Festival is here, but Rabid Ferret needs your help to determine which indie entries are next year’s Minecraft, and which ones are next year’s Rumble Massage 4. Read, play, and comment!
Those of you who listened to the inaugural Top Tier Talkcast will already know the reason why I couldn’t make it to E3 along with WiNGSPANTT and Rabid Ferret. But that’s ok. I didn’t want to go anyway. Screw those guys. What’s E3 anyway? Just a bunch of bad sequels for bad games, plus a [...]
Choo choo, party people. Put down your controllers, it’s time to throw some news into the HYPE fire. That’s right, rail accidents are occurring all over the country as an unaccounted for locomotive roams, without explanation, on the tracks – the HYPETRAIN. It’s pulling into your station, so get HYPED!
So much to HYPE this week. Something about Hideo Kojima! Something about a new Nintendo console! Lots of developers talking themselves up! An indie thing! Business! Other stuff! Graphics!
All aboard! Last stop until gaming paradise.
This weekend was when the really nice chaps at QubeTubers decided to run their 48 hour Minecraft Marathon for Child’s Play and, for those of you who weren’t there, you missed a most glorious event. I’m currently working on getting the video recording of the event sorted out (I was assured that there was at least one person recording and was able to hold off the urge to burn explode things until then) so keep on watching this space to see the new and improved destruction of a Golden Wrench!
Why new and improved? None of this pansy-ass clicking ‘Delete’ destroying, we rigged that bitch with TNT and set it on fire. Twice.*
On Saturday, March 26th, five of the Top Tier Tactics writers got together for the first time to do something absolutely fiendish for a good cause. After hours of begging, building, planning, and falling to our deaths, we constructed the world’s first 20-story golden wrench in Minecraft. Gaze upon its beauty, mortals, and despair. For while some people dream of owning such a powerful tool, others take action and bring their desires to life.
Welcome to the second week (and a half) of my thinly-veiled soapbox. Interesting fact: game news occurs much more quickly than I had suspected. Luckily for you, the WiNGSPAN human has replaced my brain with a cybernetic computer. Releases and trailers and events and shit about Minecraft all rush through my positronic net at an incomprehensible pace, and benevolently back out again through the keyboard plugged into my skull, translated into written language, all for you.
Ordinary humans have three basic desires. They wish for sustenance, they wish for sex, and they wish for news about videogames. My function is to provide only one of these. I am sorry.*
You will now “continue reading” so that the data transfer may complete. Comply immediately, or my sacrifice will have been pointless.
As you could probably tell from the advertisement in the northeast corner of the site, Top Tier Tactics is joining the QubeTubers Minecraft Marathon Child’s Play Charity event! While we’re not going to be torturing ourselves with the 48-hour marathon (we’re not masochists, mind you), we will be hosting a live stream on QubeTubers at 6PM EST* on Saturday, March 26th 2011. Watch along at QubeTubers.com, or here.** Head past the break for additional details.
