I'm saving up about $100 dollars to get some stuff (the majority of which is cubes) and the stuff i want costs about $120 - $125 altogether with shipping and i can't decide which one NOT to get.
here is what i want to buy:

$20 for dallas open
$23 for minecraft
$18 for maru 4x4
$17 for dayan + mf8 4x4
$17 for eastsheen 4x4 + diansheng 3x3 (to put springs in the eastsheen)
$19 for v-cube 2 (i'm buying it with someone else and splitting shipping)

2 things on this list i'm definitely paying for are the dallas open fee and minecraft so i need to decide which cube not to get. please answer if you have all of these puzzles (if you don't have a spring mod for eastsheen thats fine)

I don't think you'll need 3 4x4's I'd get rid of the Eastsheen, I've never heard anyone mention it in a current list of good 4x4's.

I would say Eastsheen and Mf8 + Dayan but I can only choose one. (Eastsheen)

I may change my mind after lubixing my Mf8 + Dayan, but as of now. Go with Maru, love mine.

P.S. See you in Dallas

1.Go download [modbreak]A DEMO[/modbreak] see if you really like it and willing to pay $23 just so you can play multiplayer.
2. Don't get the ES 4x4x4 or Diangsheng 3x3x3.. You can get ghosthand 3x3x3 for around the same price of the diangsheng 3x3x3 and it's 10x better, and you already getting a Maru and Dayan, which are both pretty good 4x4x4 cubes from what I heard.

Please don't encourage people to steal games (especially from independent developers) it's hard enough making a living in the games industry.

save yourself $24 and get a ShengShou lol... IMO is much better then the dayan+MF8 after some lubix and breakin in

Sauerbraten (cube:2) in my opinion is much better than Minecraft.

Sauerbraten is open source so it is free and it has multiple sized cubes from smaller than half a cubic inch to well over 300 cubic feet and it isn't limited to cubes, you can manipulate cubes to make slants, spheres, and whatever [ And there are also many objects to add to a map that you have or create your own].

With better graphics and over 200+ textures, I don't think it can meet up to Sauerbraten and it is also a first person shooter. So you can co op edit a map and then have a round of free for all.

Also the better graphics are a plus.
