?the Australian distributor for pCARS, gave the racer centre-stage billing next to The Witcher 3, such are their expectations for the Runescape game. It’s pretty enough to sell consoles on its own, particularly when racing through a thunderstorm and multiple AI opponents. Most importantly, pCARS will be launching on PS4 and Xbox One, whereas F1 2014 is strictly limited to PC and the last-gen consoles. The news earlier this week that Microsoft had splashed out US$2.5 billion on Mojang, the makers of the block-building sandbox creation Minecraft, swept the internet and the media like a virus. Runescape gamers were stunned and concerned for what it meant for the future of The Little Indie That Could. Veteran freelancers and editors took a longer view, with many retelling charming stories on the couch with their children or their friends' children. If you have any fondness for the internet then Minecraft has affected you or someone you know. I’m not a fan, but a close friend of mine met his wife among the pixelated Creepers and the blocky hills and mines. These kinds of tales are common, given that Minecraft has over 100 million registered users. Microsoft said more than 2 billion hours had been played on the Xbox 360 version alone in the last two years.It’s a staggering achievement for a game that could be purchased in beta form a progenitor of the Early Access route so common on PC these days for a measly $10. And just how important Minecraft is in our culture RS 07 Gold will only truly be known in the coming decades, when the millions of children around the world playing on their tablets, iPhones and consoles grow up.One much more recent and curious impact Notch’s creation has had on gaming, however, has been the way its popularity has allowed personalities to flourish, resulting in fledgling Let’s Runescape players and online critics becoming genuine online stars. YouTube channels have grown into networks, and mildly successful entertainers have transformed into the closest thing YouTube has to corporations.Joseph Garrett, the 23-year-old Englishman responsible for the Stampy Cat channel, is one example. Despite only starting his efforts a couple of years ago, his prolific nature uploading at least one TV-length Minecraft episode every day, often alongside other episodes and his high-pitched tones have proven a major hit with fans, particularly children.His channel has over 3.75 million subscribers; the channel trailer alone has over 5.7 million views. Garrett told The Daily Mail earlier this year that he receives around 3,000 messages a day asking for tips about Runescape games, and the tens of thousands of views for each of his daily uploads generates an estimated $US1.2 million to $US9.5 million a year according to Socialblade (after YouTube takes its cut of advertising revenue). You need to be getting the massive figures, but if you do manage to get right to the top, there is big money there, Garrett said.
