World of Tanks Blogging imminent!

So very soon we should be getting a feature up and running about World of Tanks. It’ll be run by one of our quieter forum members who spends a lot of time and money on the game, it’ll feature tips and tricks as well as links to pictures of his conquests and failures.

Of course I will also take part a little and maybe do a weekly “best hits” because my failures aren’t anything important (they are 90% of the time I play and usually end with me falling off of things.)

This running alongside my Minecraft blog will give us two gaming features on this site, so rejoice! Or maybe not!

I have had a few little problems with getting screencaps these last few days so unfortunately there isn’t any more “in making” photos of my Pyramid, but Minecraft friends IT IS ALIVE!!!!

The Pyramid of Ook

 

I think it was 56×56, hollow on the inside as there is a main chamber and a “dungeon” chamber. This is my first massive scale build and I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Want to look inside?

It is simple in design but it does the trick!

Next up for me is a “Lair” as my “thing” with my friends is that I’m the Librarian from Discworld of course this is all Orang-utan style so the “Lair” will probably be tree based.

Please feel free to give any comments back on what you think of my Pyramid and any ideas for what to build after the Liar of Ook!

 

 

GeekMind Forum

So just a plug for our forum at www.GeekMind.boards.net .

The forum is where this all started and where we are gathering our opinions on posts to make on here. We are just a small community, we’ve had people come and go on the forum over the year we’ve been open and we are always looking for new friends.

What can you expect on there?

Well a little bit of everything! In the last year we’ve had a few games up and running (PokΓ©mon ABC, making a story amongst us all, Quiz Night…) talked every episode of Doctor Who to death and back, reviewed many movies and gossiped about trailers and just chilled out!

Of course one of the big reasons for making this page is to bring people in on our discussions, things we’ve been doing over there will be posted on here and hopefully people that find us on here will go over there and check us out, we really are a nice bunch of people and would love to have any new amount of friends to talk to over there about everything and anything.

So why not check us out and get in on the discussion?

Minecrafting #1

I play Minecraft as any Geeks do. Yes I love whacking away at little blocks and building stupid buildings. I’m not very good at it but I do enjoy it greatly. So I thought I’d write up a Minecraft blog, especially documenting the birth of my Pyramid!

Here it is in Step One :

Step One

I’ll have a fuller blog and some update on my Pyramid next week but just to start the ball rolling I thought I’d post.

Anna (Awerka) Random 50

So the five writers on this blog decided that they’d shuffle up their iPods (MP3 players in some cases…) and post the next 50 songs. Β Just to give you an idea on what kind of people we are… Apparently.

I go first, whether or not anyone really follows suit is up to them but I’m not afraid of what you might find out about me.

So my Random 50…..
