Legendary, Google bring Warcraft to the world of VR

Not to dash your hopes, this isn't the long-awaited Warcraft film yet. Not even a trailer. Though we expect the film to arrive in glorious stereo 3D or even VR when it does screen next year, the Warcraft being shown around at San Diego Comic Con is but an appetizer and perhaps even a distraction. Legendary Pictures and Google have teamed up to bring some fancy new content to VR via the Cardboard project. It also happens to be a smart strategy to advertise Legendary's upcoming films.

Dragon Quest Builders takes more than a few cues from Minecraft

Dragon Quest Builders takes more than a few cues from Minecraft

By this time, there should be little doubt that Minecraft has ascended to pop culture status. Although still a game, its influence, and particularly its style, has reached far and wide, from games, to books, to media references. Now those Minecraft tendrils seem to have reached and taken root in Japan, where a new Dragon Quest spin off is brewing. While details of the game are still pretty slim, there is one thing that is immediately obvious. This world building game is, perhaps unabashedly, torn off from Minecraft's book.

Game streaming: fad or future?

Sony, NVIDIA, and, just recently, GameFly. These are the companies that are trying to push game streaming to the forefront. And they are just the bigger ones, with smaller players also trying to make a name for themselves in this niche, either through innovation or through sheer force of will.

PlayStation Now gets a new UI worthy of streaming name

PlayStation Now gets a new UI worthy of streaming name

PlayStation Now has been dubbed by some as the Netflix of games due to its streaming nature but up until now, that was pretty much only in name. Now, Sony's game streaming service has something to show for it as well. Taking a cue from the design of actual streaming service, the PlayStation Now interface just received a face lift which truly makes the nascent gaming trend feel more like a streaming service and less like a hard to reach corner of the PS Store.

Just keep telling yourself that just because it's mobile, it doesn't have to be meaningless - this game is going to have real consequences.
