    He should buy a real doll version of Dan Casey. I know that’s what I would do. 

  2. Goodbye Minecraft… 🙁 Now its Microsoft’s game 😐

    If they allow Mojang to continue operating as they always have, just with more resources for updates, it will continue to be a success. If Microsoft thinks they can turn it into something of their own, I think they’ll find their new ship sinking.

    Well the Borderlands 2 Minecraft is fun to find and use.

    I hope they don’t screw it up, I don’t like the Xbox platform, I only have a PC and PS3 (soon to have a PS4) and I hope they keep it multiplatform otherwise I’m done with Minecraft, which is sad because I do love the game.

    Yayyyyyy!!!! (Says a Windows Phone lover) 😀 Hopefully we can still play it on our other devices, though.

    Hey Jessica, if someone buys something from you for 2.5 billion dollars… Can I have a dollar?
