  • Weirdness Bloomin' Heck, Someone Made Shenmue in Minecraft

    Search for sailors all over again

    It’s funny how you can remember your way around familiar locations even if you haven’t been there for years.

  • News Minecraft Builds Itself a Gigantic Update on PS3

    Still no date for PS4 edition, though

    Digging its way onto the PlayStation 3 tomorrow, Minecraft's newest update adds in an utterly ridiculous amount of new content and fixes a whole load of block-based issues.

    Christmas has come early on the North American PlayStation Store this week. Indeed, there are so many highlights that we don’t really know where to start.
