With Minecraft version 1.3, which is currently scheduled to release on August 1, 2012, Mojang will make the game's single-player mode a "shell" on top of multiplayer. This step is being taken in advance of the upcoming modding API, and it also means that future bug fixes won't be specific to either mode.

The developer notes that online play itself ought to be a "smoother and more stable experience" as a result of 1.3. Single-player worlds can be shared on your local network and you'll also be able to use new commands similar to those available in multiplayer. The downside? Higher resource requirements.

Optimization is being worked on but might not make it until the next major update. Other notable features of 1.3 include the ability to write in books, tripwire, new terrain features, and the option to start Minecraft with a bonus chest for a quicker start. Here's the full list of what is included.

Laser Fury looks like Diablo but neon and radical

I do not mean to suggest that Diablo is not good, but the dreary look never really grabbed me, even with Diablo III's improvements in that respect. Laser Fury, on the other hand, takes a hold of my eyes immediately...more

Particulars explores the subatomic world next month

I always appreciate seeing science represented in games, outside of the typical "heroes need to clean up the mess these mad scientists made" trope. Videogames can be so powerful as tools for learning, and that potential is s...more
