Minecraft “Predator” mod lets you go ghostly

Minecraft “Predator” mod lets you go ghostly

One Minecraft mod summons thousands of fans with a "Predator-like" set of abilities in 148144 commands. This fellow by the name of Sliced Lime has presented a command block machine for Minecraft which allows the wearer's outfit to change color depending on the block nearest the wearer. The result is a camouflage suit the likes of which we've only otherwise seen in the light-bending Predator beast from the Predator film series. This mod is not (yet) part of the standard game build, but you certainly can try it for yourself if you wish.

Minecraft for PS4 to get ‘The Simpsons’ skin pack tomorrow

Minecraft for PS4 to get ‘The Simpsons’ skin pack tomorrow

Earlier this year, Minecraft players got a The Simpsons skin pack for Minecraft…if they were using an Xbox, that is. We did a mini review of sorts to give a look at the skin pack, and now those on the PlayStation 4 who have been waiting will also be able to get it. The DLC is set to drop this week, and if all goes as anticipated, we’ll be seeing it hit the PlayStation Store on April 28 (that’s tomorrow).

Minecraft Gameband Review

Minecraft Gameband Review

If you're in the mood for Minecraft and you move from machine to machine on a regular basis, you may want to have a peek at the Gameband + Minecraft. This unit has actually been in "soft release" mode for a few weeks - it first surfaced a few months ago, in fact, but today it's on blast courtesy of the folks at Gameband and Microsoft. In addition to being sent to none other than Larry Hyrb last week, you'll be seeing this piece of equipment appearing in stores across the United States immediately if not soon.

Google’s Project Tango has a Minecraft demo, too

Google’s Project Tango has a Minecraft demo, too

At a demonstration of the newest in new Project Tango hardware and software by Google at GTC 2015 we've gotten the opportunity to take a peek at an off-brand Minecraft. "This is sort of our homage to Minecraft," said Google ATAP Technical Program Lead Johnny Chung Lee. He proceeded to create a brick house in a 3D space using the newest Project Tango tablet with NVIDIA Tegra K1 inside. The tablet's screen has a pointer, just like Minecraft, and a building exists in a virtual, yet real, space.

Turkey to ban Minecraft for depictions of violence

Turkey to ban Minecraft for depictions of violence

When you think of Minecraft, the firs thing that pops into your mind isn't likely to be violence. That's not what the Turkish Ministry's Children Services General Directorate is suggesting, though, making clear this week that they intend to begin the process of banning the game from the country for its depictions of violence. "Although the game can be seen as encouraging creativity in children by letting them build houses, farmlands and bridges," said the ministry, "mobs [hostile creatures] must be killed in order to protect these structures. In short, the game is based on violence."

Minecraft Simpsons Skins mini-Review

Minecraft Simpsons Skins mini-Review

This afternoon we're having a peek at the brand spanking new Simpsons Skin pack for Minecraft. This downloadable pack of skins is available for Xbox One and Xbox 360 as of this week, and includes characters like Bart, Marge, Homer, Maggie, and Lisa. Of course you'll also get oddities like Otto Mann, Nelson Muntz, Martin Prince, Janey Powell, Principal Skinner, and more. While this - like most downloadable skin packs for Minecraft - isn't a massive game-changer in any way, we thought we'd give you a bit of a peek at what you'd be dropping a three dollar bill on before you dropped it this week.

Minecraft update reduces security risks on PCs

Minecraft update reduces security risks on PCs

Minecraft is a very popular video game that lets players build just about anything they can dream up using blocks of all sorts of materials. What players can build in the game is only limited by their imagination and patience placing blocks. One of the drawbacks of Minecraft in the past was a potential to leave PCs with security vulnerabilities.

Star Wars Rebels hit Minecraft for Xbox

Star Wars Rebels hit Minecraft for Xbox

It's time that the Star Wars universe - specifically the Rebels bit of it - hit the square-fitted environment of Minecraft. This is the second time a Star Wars-themed pack of skins has approached Minecraft, and the first that Star Wars' expanded universe has been brought to this environment. The first release was back in November of 2014 when the first "Classic" Star Wars pack brought on all of your favorite original characters from the first three movies. Now it's time to get animated.

Minecraft was not hacked but user passwords phished

Minecraft was not hacked but user passwords phished

Given the recent rash of Internet security breaches, you'd think that users would be more careful about their online accounts and passwords. Apparently not so. In fact, according to a recent report, "123456" is still the most popular password around. That same disregard for security, or maybe just laziness, has resulted in as much as 1,800 Minecraft accounts, including their passwords, to be compromised. It might be too easy to presume that Minecraft's servers have been hacked, but apparently, it was all the result of a phishing scam.

Just in case you wanted to up your game in the malformed Simpsons character universe, Minecraft and Xbox are about to have you covered. Both the Minecraft Xbox 360 and Minecraft Xbox One builds of the Minecraft universe will be receiving access to this pack - just as long as the user pays their $1.99 fee, that is to say. "We are thrilled to partner with Twentieth Century Fox and Gracie Films to bring THE SIMPSONS to life on Minecraft Xbox 360 and Xbox One editions," said Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox, "I can’t wait to see what the community creates."

User creates functional text editor in Minecraft

User creates functional text editor in Minecraft

We've seen some pretty interesting (read: brilliant) creations in Minecraft, including the functional 1KB hard drive and functional iPhone including apps. Continuing with the created-in-Minecraft theme is yet another bit of functional blocky artistry, a text editor with a 5 x 10 character display and the ability to open saved files and display whatever you might feel like typing into it. The creation was made by user Koala_Steamed using redstone. Amazing? Right. Even better, we've a video of it in action after the jump.

Minecraft: Pocket Edition was Christmas Day’s top grossing iOS app

Minecraft: Pocket Edition was Christmas Day’s top grossing iOS app

It's expected for some of the most popular apps for Apple's iPhone and iPad to get a boost in sales around Christmas. Whether it's people taking advantage of holiday discounts or redeeming gift cards, Christmas is a good time to have a popular app listed high on the download charts. But this year, one paid app in particular made the most money across the entire iOS platform on Christmas Day: Minecraft: Pocket Edition. That the $7 game did so well is no doubt a success for developer Mojang and new franchise owners Microsoft.
