I'll admit it: when I heard Markus "Notch" Persson had canceled Minecraft for Oculus Rift because Facebook acquired its creator Oculus VR and the social network company "creeps" him out, I was skeptical about how much work ha...

Despite having no interest in playing ports of Minecraft on new platforms, plenty of others are eager to do exactly that, and I do think getting this piece of pop culture on Wii U would benefit Nintendo. Every game matters. A...


When I first saw this video of a 3D printer within Minecraft, I was blown away -- but it was getting late, and I learned long ago not to publish at night. It's since come to my attention again, and I'm taking that as sign en...

I bet Notch usually eats regular gold coins just because he can afford it so Craig Ferguson had them bring chocolate gold coins on set to make him feel more at home. Also, Notch says Mario Kart isn't a proper game. This casu...


After Markus "Notch" Persson's development and eventual cancellation of 0x10c, it sounds as if he'd just as well stick to smaller-scale games. "I think when it comes to game development I would prefer it if we did it in more...

The South Park Minecraft focused episode aired last night, and as it turns out it wasn't just about Minecraft! In fact, it was more about murder porn. Oh, and how sh*tty cable companies are. Funny enough, I stopped watching t...

A great way to waste time is to Google any odd topic that happens to pop into your head and play a game of link tag until you strike pay dirt. My latest excursion led me to Sonic Racer 4K, a Java-based Sonic fan game. But wha...
