Have you ever watched a piece of video game marketing, and think to yourself that the people who came up with the game have no fucking idea what they're doing? Like none. Like they have literally never played a game before, and only seen them on websites and read about them on sales reports.

I dunno bro, kids are gonna go batshit over this. I was showing my 8 year old brother Angry Birds Isle of Pigs, the new AR game, and he was absolutely blown away.

I am 100% convinced this will see a surge of high interest leading up to release, then a dramatic drop as kids realise they can't just spawn 100 blocks of TNT to destroy npc villages. And my God, have you every played on unpoliced public servers? The amount of safeguards they'll have to put in this to stop griefing, pornography, copyright infringement, etc? Kotaku is going to have a field day when this releases.

Despite the horrible history of the hololens project that fed into this, and its dishonest E3 demo years ago, I'm still pretty interested to see how this works. My son loves Minecraft and certainly loves to hunt Pokemon outside in Go, plus we have a lot of land around us to run around in. If this works well, it could be very interesting for setting up little hidden virtual constructions in the woods and whatnot.

It would be cool if you can see other people creation (This is likely) and the AR good enough to really solidly overlap with the real world instead of just looking like someone placed an inconsistently scaling 3D model overtop a camera App. The latter point I don't feel confident with.

Yeah, seems like something Microsoft would do with the franchise after purchasing it...
Actually considering it’s microsoft I’m surprised we haven’t gotten annual/bi-annual sequels to be part of the forza/halo/gears trifecta.

On another note: where the fuck is the super duper realistic skin pack? It’s been like 2 years since they announced it.

This is gonna do really well. Minecraft has universal appeal, but I wouldn't play it though.

"Not bad is good" is probably also the best anyone will say about this game.

Don't pedos try to get at kids on Minecraft? This seems like it could go in a bad way.
