I wrote about this not too long ago, but if you own Minecraft now it is a good time to head on back and check out some of the new changes. They don't significantly patch Minecraft all that often, the last one was in April of 2012, so every time they do it comes with quite a few changes and new content. With this patch they have updated the demo, so people can play up to five days in-game, and they have also made singleplayer use multiplayer servers to decrease world saving intervals. Hopefully that doesn't mean you can't play without an internet connection, but that is kind of the case already since you have to login into their launcher. Content wise, this patch adds new blocks, new materials, monster changes, temples, adventure mode, trading, writing and more. Check out the full list here. They also have a new block type coming with adventure mode that lets the server admin set objectives or goals for players, which could be quite interesting, but it is not clear what version that is being released with. Rock Paper Shotgun has more on that. Thanks for reading.
