I think it's great that Jens 'Jeb' Bergensten and Nathan 'Dinnerbone' Adams are continuing to update Minecraft while Notch is off doing Notch-stuff with his new, unrelease, unfinished project. Some of the new stuff they've done is great (okay, I can be honest -- it's all great!). Special thanks goes to my friends, who made the chunk-loading-era comment this week's comic is based on when I mentioned invisibility potions.
Good news, if you're an Animal Crossing fan and live in Japan: a release date has been set. The game will be out November 8th, 2012. Bad news if you're an Animal Crossing fan and live pretty much anywhere else: the closest Nintendo is giving for a US release date is "first half of 2013". C'mon, Nintendo, what are you doing? I just want to hunt for fossils and send letters to fictional animal-people!
