    Yes. In a blocky-pixelated graphic style. Yes. :) You will love the graphics if you dig the Minecraft PC graphics. Also, this game is going to be better than Eden when all of the updates come out. Right now, they are about the same caliber, but I would get this game if you like Minecraft in any sort of way ;)

    Are you just trying to tell me you can't use the controls? I thought it was quite clever. I can move, look around AND jump all at the same time, only using my two thumbs. Easy as heck.

    I can't. They're terrible.

    It's not. Trust me.

    Congratulations, you just described most video games. :D

    Thus meaning the game would've been delayed by a few days.

    Have they actually been promised or are people just assuming they're coming?

    Ah, cool. Thanks. 'Eventually' sounds like a long time but good to know survival is in the works.

    It does, but I do think for people who are interested in Minecraft should be patient, and I'm sure it will be worth the wait.
    For those not buying just yet, you may be waiting a while, and I honestly don't see a price drop upcoming, though, I could be incorrect in assuming so. So, if you're unsure, but you've got some extra cash, it shouldn't hurt to get it now.
    And even if there is a price drop in the future, you're giving some well earned money to Mojang, one of the most epic indie developers in the world right now.

    Yep, I agree and I've bought it! Got to admit, I'm having difficulty with the movement controls but it runs really well on my iPad.

    No, I was trying to tell you that the jump button is in an inconvenient spot, and I believe I succeeded.

    Wow, you can control the whole game using your two thumbs? That's crazy. I though for sure you'd have to use one of your big toes.

    People that own the Pocket Edition. Is there iCloud support for saved worlds? Or if not iCloud, some other device sharing support?

    Look— if you had a jump button on the right side, you would have to stop looking around in order to jump. Personally, I think taking your thumb off to place blocks is jarring enough; the game on PC is is designed so that you always have control over the camera. I think the control method now— if you manage to wrap your head around it— makes sense if you think of the player as always wanting control over the camera.

    No point in arguing about the control scheme. In the interview he says they aren't currently planning any alternate ones.

    Also,

    When survival comes out, they will have no choice but to change the control scheme.

    Before the survival update comes out, it is essential that they add:
    Hoe
    Sword
    Pick axe
    Furnace
    Axe
    Crafting box

    Needed after survival update:
    Seeds
    Cactus
    Stone bricks
    Lever
    Redstone
    Button
    Minecraft
    Rails
    Powered rails
    Detector rails
    Trap door
    Doors
    Watermelon seeds

    There's more, but that is just the top of my head. So we have lots to look forward to, but we're going to have to want before we get the survival update.
    Oh, and by the way I'm building a city and it looks awesome.
