Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 6 features big names from the community

After the most recent episode of Minecraft: Story Mode, I'm looking forward to the new direction for the series. Simple, one-off episodes seem to fit better than an overwrought multi-episode arc. The sixth episode releases next week beginni...   read

Minecraft's 'Battle mini game' is a new official gametype that fans will dig

It sounds cliché, but I could probably play Minecraft for many more years to come. I picked it up while it was in alpha yet here I am, still enjoying split-screen with friends, adventuring solo, and discovering new worlds o...   read

That Mario Minecraft Mash-Up? It wasn't Nintendo's idea

Review: Minecraft: Story Mode: Order Up!

As the old saying goes, absence makes the heart grow fonder. That might have happened with Minecraft: Story Mode. The first four episodes of the season released within two and a half months of one another, and I had been pretty lukewarm on ...   read

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

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

Review: Cobalt

There's a movement these days of games going multiplayer-only, focusing on one aspect to make it as good as possible. Along with that comes the dissent, players who demand single-player content and developers who spend resources providing i...   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

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
