Someone built a 3D printer inside Minecraft


Now we just need to 3D print this 3D printer...
Dec 20
// Jordan Devore
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 don't know that I fully grasp the appeal of premium skins in Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, but I was never one to buy crap for my Avatar, either, so I'm clearly not the intended audience. If I were, however, these characters...

Dec 13
// Jordan Devore
Damn. 10 million copies of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition have been sold to date. I'd say the person responsible for initiating the deal that would eventually lead to this version coming about deserves a raise, or a pat on the b...

Notch accidentally interviewed at Valve, turned down job


He wants to create a Valve rather than work at Valve
Dec 10
// Brett Makedonski
Most people that are even remotely interested in the videogames industry would figuratively kill (maybe literally!) for a shot at interviewing at Valve, let alone securing a job there. Markus Persson, better known to the gami...

Minecraft creator Notch eats gold chocolate coins on TV


Is Mario Kart a proper game?
Nov 08
// Steven Hansen
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...

Mojang is looking to focus on smaller game prototypes


Studio will see what sticks and go from there
Nov 06
// Jordan Devore
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...

It can be difficult to keep up with all of the content 4J Studios pumps out for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition and the millions of people that seem to own that version of the game. This seems like a big one, though. It's a DLC p...

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...

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!

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.
