First five minutes of Star Wars recreated in Minecraft

An ambitious fan of Minecraft and Star Wars has decided to mash together his two favorite things and recreate the first five minutes of the movie with blocks. He's hoping to recreate the entire film this way, but I'm guessing it will be awhile before he finishes it. Live long and prosper!

Real life Minecraft Diamond Sword slices and dices

Our favorite blacksmith is back! This time he's recreated the Minecraft's Diamond Sword on the latest episode of Man At Arms. Another cool creation, but I'd hate to actually have to wield this thing as the handle doesn't look comfortable at all.

Beetlejuice & Minecraft come together to break your brain

It's been way too long since we've posted an amazing Minecraft creation. So I'm really happy we get to highlight this awesome fan created roller coaster themed after Beetlejuice, both the cartoon and movie. It's pretty trippy, and the project took about two months off and on to complete. Even crazier is that this was done on the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft!

I know what a game is photo
I know what a game is
by Daniel Starkey

A lot of people have been running around attacking games like Proteus or The Walking Dead; claiming that they aren’t, in fact, games. Generally speaking these people spout off random things about requiring “win states” and rules.

It’s an odd thing, but one that seems to be gaining more and more traction with those who are opposed to the swelling undercurrent of “indie” and “arthouse” games.  For better or worse, they are locked into one specific definition of what a “game” is, how it should work, etc., and while I don’t really think a global definition is necessary in the first place, their constant whining is something that I feel needs a better response than what I’ve seen floating about thus far.
