Hi Guys!

This week I wanted to give you a run down of some fun Mojang things that happened this weekend. First of all on Friday, Notch had a great birthday party at a fun Stockholm club. The Mojanstas had a great night of celebrating an amazing guy!


Talk about an ice sculpture…


Saturday night it was time for the deadmau5 concert in Stockholm. deadmau5 is a big Minecraft fan and even was kind enough to have all of the Mojangstas back stage before the event.


Jens wore a creeper deadmau5 head the entire show. Even though it was rainy and really cold, it was absolutely awesome.

Multiple times in the show, deadmau5 had Minecraft graphics up on the screens. He had both grass blocks and a segment with a bunch of pigs in minecarts.


The Weekly Chunk videos won't be weekly until I head back to the office, but every Wednesday there will be a post on here. 

This week's challenge is pretty easy… Play Minecraft. Next week the first community member will be interviewed on here (and they will be giving you a challenge). 

Have a wonderful week!

-Lydia

Not to be a bummer, but is this really where all the money is going? :(

Edit: To clarify, I wished that money was invested into games, hiring more people to bump up updates and manpower, anything really that's resourceful. I'm just kinda sad/****** seeing him blow this kinda money on his OWN birthday, makes him look like its gone to his head a bit.

I see your point of view, and since I do not actually know much about his History, I'll assume he didn't have a ton of money growing up, and this would be a nice change of pace. However yeah I think it might be a little much...

I agree with your points as well.

Minecraft is full version now. if anything, these updates are additional content. by all rights, normal companies would release these updates as DLC, or "premium".

regardless, the game is released. Mojang have no further obligation to update, yet they are. And it has grown amazingly, from the tiny creative free version, to this full amazing adventure version.

Users as of now have no right to expect them to continue working on Minecraft since it's left Beta, as they have already completed it to 1.0. that's the blunt, harsh truth of the matter.

Your right, and it's not right of me to expect him to continue minecraft updates.

Just really haven't seen them making progress on any of their games, Scrolls i haven't heard anything past the Bethesda feud and Cobalt i haven't checked up on. I'm just more concerned about the company in general, yeah they have all this money, but it's not permanent and its going to dissipate if notch keeps spending it on needless things.

Though who am I to judge, they did just release the xbox minecraft and cashed in on that but at the same time its confusing how they didn't just wait to complete it up to its PC counterpart, Microsoft is going to make us pay for those updates.

If you honestly believe that users shouldn't expect them to continue working on Minecraft, which is basically an endless game, far from having everything it possibly could, you're crazy:3 The more *free content they add = More Variety = More Fun = More Players = More Money

they can't keep building on it forever. that's not viable.

It all depends really, if the fan base is still growing, and they're still making money, then why not? But I know what you mean.
