Does anyone know if it's possible to do the survival mode etc with co-op, like if I had a group of friends who wanted to basically wanted to play in the same world as me? I'm not too sure without setting up a private server and even then I'm not sure


Pretty sure there'd have to be some sort of server thing going on, unless Minecraft has changed a lot since I last played.

On another topic, Steam has a little mini sale on, so I got Hell Yeah! and Sine Mora for about £5. Steam is going to bankrupt me one of these days, I can just see it happening now.

Possible on the xbox version. Not entirely sure what the limit of people is, so don't be disappointed if its 4. You can also split screen two player.



I finished Black Ops 2 on vet yesterday, what a truly sensational ending! SPOILER: Sure its tollerating Avenged Sevenfold, but when Mason looks at Reznov in the crowd then two seconds later Reznov has fucked off and Masons looking around for him. Made me laugh. :lol:

Currently playing Don't Starve. Dammed addictive, but I hate having to start over when I die.

Also, got added to the Linux Steam beta, so I'm on TF2 a lot too.

Planetside 2 is incredibly addictive, for the record. Been running with my merry band of retards doing stupid things and basically being a thorn in the side of everyone.

If you're ever on Woodman and you see a band of morons with the outfit tag "OGOD"? Run. It's safer that way.

Looks like Valve are actually going to do it: They've got their own "living room PC" in development. When it will actually come out, who knows!

Beyond Good and Evil is a unstated Classic. It really was so unappreciated back when it was going ( game cube days). Such a joy to play. Also Guild ways 2 is amazing!

Easy enough to set up really:

On PC you need to download the Server files from the website and create a world, then you need to faff around with some ram fix because the server files don't allocate enough ram to run the server properly. You'll need a netwowrking program such as Hamachi to connect to your friends, there are tutorials for both of these things on youtube. Maybe one of your mates could set the server up if you're confused. Also it requires a semi decent computer to run the world, networking and your own game all at once.

On xbox there is a 16 player limit I think.

Nah you don't. You just need to set up port forwarding if you're behind a router. These VPN applications just confuse matters.

Port forwarding confuses me Haha, I find it easier to use Hamachi as it just gives you all the information at hand. Just create a network, tell your friends it's name and the password, then use that ip address that it says on top :)
Plus I think that would be easier to explain to your friends etc.
