    If W2K can run JDK 6 then yes, it will work just fine. The game has no software requirements other than that.

    I really can't get into this game for some reason, it gets old after a little while.

    christians have discovered minecraft and now claim it to be Christian Software!

    http://objectiveministries.org/zounds/review-minecraft.html

    Yes, we heathens are now all being taught valuable christian lessons, apparently.

    Well, not even the most secular gamer would build a house on 'falling sand' in the scary real world. And you can't build on falling sand in minecraft either. Resting sand, however, is quite acceptable to build on in minecraft and our shelters don't give a flying fack if the sand disappears at a later date.
    I wonder what biblical lesson that is? On second thought: scratch that. There loads of interpretations for castles floating in the sky, i bet.

    Or maybe it's just that the absence of light makes it bloody dark. I admire the attempt to make every instance of flipping a light switch into an acknowledgement of christian teachings.
    Christans should patent the act of breathing next, for the holy spirit is the breath of life.

    Anyway, they jesusified the torches because of Psalm 27:1 ("Light yadada Lord yadayada salvation [...]"). I wonder how the warm light of lava figures into it.

    Surprisingly he stopped short of mentioning muslim suicide bombers. Probably just an oversight until the light of revelation shines on the sacred blogs.

    If minecraft was indeed intended to be what the Christian Gaming Zone thinks it is, then it's sublte and ingenious indeed. I still don't believe it and thus I'm snared in the iron grip of the hand of god.

    That one got me suspicious: Is this whole article satire?

    That was a quite blatant reference to our heathen friends on a muslim persuasion.

    I can think of so many reasons to not call it hell, foremost among them to escape the attention of certain christian ze- ... believers.

    Makes you kinda wonder if Matthews didn't read Revelations before he wrote 8:12.
    No light, expect for the light. Torches=good, but fire=bad?

    Funny fact: Jesus Christ always preached love and forgiveness and never of hell.
    Hell was the favorite topic of the church, for fear creates a market for salvation, which the church happened to have a monopoly on. Hell was also popular in the old testament, as well as feat, punishment, wrath of god, etc., which basically made Jesus preach the exact opposite, because he was a nice guy.

    Amazing how everything can be twisted into biblicalness ... must be the secret to their success.

    Isn't there anything unholy in mincraft apart from being able to rebuild the tower of babel within a few hours? Or griefing the hell out of other players?

    :wow: That was kinda weird. They can think whatever they want but I'm 99% sure notch didn't create it with that idea in mind. And Notch said he was calling it the nether to avoid upsetting a religion. And that alpha statement I laughed at. Whoever wrote that must not know that much about games. :p

    EDIT: And I don't think the bible said there was anything in hell that was neutral. (in this case pigmen)

    Actually no, health is up but mobs and bows/arrows are still quite buggy.

    PvP is workable however! :)
