Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 5 releasing March 29

After playing the previous episode, A Block and a Hard Place, I said it felt like the true end of the season. Not only did it wrap up the main story arc, it also ended Telltale's string of quick releases for the series. The shortest wait be...   read

Dudes, I just got the weirdest damn gaming book of all time

Yesterday I opened a package and found a book staring back at me called "The Unofficial Holy Bible For Minecrafters: New Testament." Naturally, my first reaction was "oh it's a tome of sorts for tips in the game, makes sense." But I was dea...   read

Hey man...have you ever seen Minecraft...on Unreal 4?!

I'm starting to feel ridiculous writing all these Unreal Engine 4 posts. I mean, on one hand, they're so easy to do, almost to the point where it's not worth it. The common criticism is that they constantly just reference existing material...   read

You can dual wield anything you want in Minecraft's Combat Update

I haven't played Minecraft in approximately twenty-six years, but lately I've been thinking about getting a group of buddies together and playing it to see how much has changed since the year 1990. Mojang must have sent its Thought Thieves ...   read

Someone made Dark Souls' Anor Londo in Minecraft

LNeoX spent ages creating one of his favorite fictional locations -- Anor Londo of Dark Souls fame -- in Minecraft. It's a 1200x1200 map, complete with a dungeon and a minecart system. The screens are definitely awe-inspiring, though t...   read

Minecraft is overhauling its website with some new features

I still remember buying Minecraft in 2009, and the original site really hasn't changed all that much. But Mojang (and thus, Microsoft) has really been making strides since the acquisition, finally releasing the game on Wii U, and it's ...   read

Minecraft: Pocket Edition is still catching up to the core game

In case you weren't aware, a team over at Mojang started work on the Pocket Edition of the game, which sought to move the series out of the Java world and into C++. The project started in 2011, and it still hasn't caught up with the standar...   read

The Minecraft Middle Earth project is still spectacular, nearly six years later

I've been playing a lot of Minecraft lately, and part of that process involves checking in on past projects to see their progress. And you know what? The folks who are working on Minecraft Middle Earth are pretty damn talented. It was ...   read

Say hello to Minecraft: Education Edition

Although I picked up Minecraft years ago on PC, I still play it to this day. Hell, I've been playing more of it than ever before lately thanks to the Wii U release. The train isn't stopping anytime soon either, as Mojang has just annou...   read

Minecraft: Story Mode wanders to Wii U this Thursday

Four episodes down, one to go. That's if, like Darren, you're playing Minecraft: Story Mode on something other than Wii U. For that port, you'll have to wait a few more days. The first episode, The Order of the Stone, releases on the Wii U ...   read

Review: Minecraft: Story Mode: A Block and a Hard Place

What a weird episode. After the high energy of The Last Place You Look, this one slows down the action shortly into it, and it doesn't really pick back up until the very end, which feels like the end of a season. But then, there's still ano...   read

Minecraft is doing well on Wii U

We could have predicted Minecraft: Wii U Edition would be a hit. It may be a late arrival compared to other console ports, lack GamePad inventory management, and cost $29.99, but it's Minecraft. Even the knockoffs have done well for themsel...   read
