I personally love the update on redstone and the addition of Hoppers. It'll make survival a bit easier. Less worries about starving and more time on building. Egg/Chicken farms and Sugar Cane farms can be built in full automation with collection and item storage. Wheat farms will be able to have auto sorting on collection, but will still be semi-auto with the need to replant seeds. No more herobrine? I never got to see one. XD Madness.

I don't know if they add this back now and then or if they just pretend to remove it every patch. All I know is that I've seen this at least five times before.

Kilin: It might just be a humorous trend they're doing with the patch updates.

Castypher 9 years, 2 months ago

Oh, you're right. I never really paid much attention to that.

The joke is that no matter how many times they remove him, he's still in there.



Doing whatever makes him scary to the scores of 10 year olds obsessed with him.

Herobrine never even existed, that's part of the joke =p

I'm not sure if I want to play now or wait until the marathon.

damn, i thought 1.5 was gonna be something big. doesn't sound like that added all that much. Although i am interested in the nether ore.

1.5 was mostly redstone/technical update focused, I think 1.6 will be a more exciting update for the general minecraft community because it will add things like new mobs.
