Maybe you have purchased the game and are like “ok now what?” Well then you are at the right place.

What is Minecraft?

It is really hard to explain what Minecraft is but I think Haatfilms did a good job by showing the evolution of Minecraft for Minecon opening.

As you can see Minecraft has gone through lots of changes from version to version. Haat Films also has some overviews of what is new in these updates. These kind of videos are pretty common before/after updates produced by many great Youtubers Haat Films just being one Paulsoaresjr, Wolv21, Welshpixe and more come to mind for good videos on new features etc.

Here are some links to the Haat Films update videos:

Hatventures – Minecraft 1.3 Update! Repeater! Beds! Occlusion!

Minecraft 1.4 Wolves, Cookies, Brown Wool, Ladder Hanging, New Logo!

Minecraft 1.5 – Snow! Rain! Stats/Achievements!

Minecraft Prerelease 4 – POTIONS

Minecraft Prerelease 4 – Enchantments!

Minecraft Prerelease 4 – ‘THE END’


How to survive your fist night.

Ok so maybe you got Minecraft and got in there and punched a tree and then all of a sudden it started getting dark and then….sssssSSSSS BOOM. You die…over and over. What do I do?

Paulsouresjr who is a great Minecraft community member (and friend) has made a series of videos that show you how to “Survive and Thrive” here is the first video and a link to the rest. Beware there are 2 seasons! almost 200 episodes. Yes you can do that much in Minecraft.
