Minecraft gets Hunger Games-style Battle mode

Minecraft gets Hunger Games-style Battle mode

Minecraft started out as such a simple game. You'd spawn into a world, and you'd need to find resources to build a shelter to ride out the night in. Then you'd work on building bigger and better structures until you got tired of it. These days, there's more to do than any of us could have imagined back when the game was originally released in alpha, back in 2010.

New Doom features get recreated in the original games

If you haven't picked up the new Doom game, I highly recommend it. While the multiplayer leaves a lot to be desired, the single-player campaign is well worth it. If you can't afford it, or your machine can't handle it, that's okay. You can soon get some of the new Doom flavor in the original games.

The Force Awakens isn’t coming to Netflix, despite Disney Deal

Yesterday we learned that starting in September, Netflix will become the exclusive streaming home to all things Disney, Marvel, and Lucasfilm. Being a huge Star Wars nerd, it’s easy to get hopeful about seeing The Force Awakens show up on my streaming provider of choice. However, that won’t be happening any time soon.

The Pirate Bay returns to .org domain

While I don't actually use the website, I enjoy reading news pertaining to The Pirate Bay. For many years, the site has been providing links to torrents, and no one has been able to take them down. Most recently, a Swedish court ruled that they must give up two of their most-commonly used domain names. But today brings a new twist in the tale.

Corsair LAPDOG brings the mouse and keyboard to your couch

I have a gaming dilemma, one that I think is pretty common among PC gamers. I've got a really nice gaming computer, and a nice monitor, and that's what I tend to use for gaming. But sometimes I want to just chill on my couch and play games on my big screen. I've used a number of different methods to get my keyboard and mouse to work on the couch, but it's never comfortable enough. But now Corsair thinks that they have the answer.

It's nearly June, and that means it's time for Xbox Live members to get excited by some new free games.

If you only have the newer console, it's still a good practice to grab the 360 games, as they're now playable on your Xbox One.

Data Caps are coming, here’s what you need to know

Remember when you had to pay for the number of text messages that you were allowed to send and receive each month? It seemed pretty absurd at the time, especially when you consider just how little data is actually transmitted for each message. But the price wasn't there to offset the cost of transmitting each text message. Instead it was used as a way for the phone companies to earn additional revenue while driving down the cost of their most basic plans.

Rocket League cross-play between PC and Xbox One goes live

Rocket League cross-play between PC and Xbox One goes live

When I was a kid, you were in one of two camps: Nintendo or Sega. You'd talk with your friends about which was superior and why. Of course, the real reason that you were on either side is because that's the console that you had at home. When you played with your friends, you just hooked up another controller, and everyone had a good time. But now when you choose a side in the console wars, you're generally prevented from playing with anyone that doesn't play on the same device. This is slowly changing, however.

Wooting One analog keyboard hits Kickstarter

Wooting One analog keyboard hits Kickstarter

A few months ago, I wrote about an interesting new keyboard that was being worked on. Usually when a keyboard has a new feature, it's related to lighting, or displaying some sort of additional information. However, the Wooting One promises to do something that no other keyboard on the market can do.
