    Who's pre-ordering this:

    Of course the first thing I thought when I saw it was Dungeon Keeper - one of the most creative games I've ever played. I don't know if it will ever live up to DK 1 and 2 or even have as half decent sense of humour as them. It could be fun though but I think I may wait for a demo before I commit.

    it's aiming to be a rip off dungeon keeper and i was going to preorder it, but giving you mud tv with it convinced me not to. mud tv is their rip off of mad tv only not half as good and buggy as hell.

    they accidentally reminded me that most of the games they do aren't very good
    tropico 3 was a competent sequel though

    hmm, i'll have a look at it for you tonight, you weren't online monday night like you promised Sad

    it's going to be a hell of an effort to make all the lights come on with one switch but it'll be awesome if we manage it. is there anything at all under the mob spawner or are we free to dig it all out?

    THATS A LOT OF LIGHTS!

    either way, you need to concentrate on digging up the sand, laying down cobble and putting the sand flat on top of it, this is yours and jacks mess

    and for that matter, you've left the area around your castle in the exact same mess

    it means minecrafts authentication servers are down

    which in turn means try again


    there were quite a lot of failed connections, look like some from dimmers and feltch as well as you, i've restarted our server in case that was a problem.

    oh, the servers been upgraded with a test version of bukkit, so minecarts are working again, although it looks to have been built on 1.2 rather than the new version so minetracks are bugged again... graaah!!!!
