Minecraft Java Edition will require Microsoft accounts next year

Minecraft Java Edition will require Microsoft accounts next year

Minecraft has definitely outgrown its humble roots, in no small part thanks to Microsoft's push to other platforms and use cases. A certain segment of the Minecraft community, however, has managed to stay firmly rooted in the game's original form, from the PC-only Java-based program to the ways they log in. The latter, however, will soon change forever as Microsoft will soon be requiring Microsoft account and only Microsoft accounts to be able to log into any incarnation of Minecraft, including the venerable Java Edition.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate adds Minecraft’s Steve and Alex to the bout

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate adds Minecraft’s Steve and Alex to the bout

Super Smash Bros. initially started out as the ultimate crossover battle royale for Nintendo's many franchises but eventually became a fertile ground for tie-ins with other gaming company's iconic characters. You know what other game has become a similar fertile ground for franchise tie-ins? Yes, Minecraft. It's not exactly surprising, then, that these two worlds will collide, though on Nintendo's turf. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's developers, however, may have bitten more than they could chew when trying to make these blocky characters fit into the fast-paced action of the game.

Minecraft PS VR is finally happening this month

Minecraft PS VR is finally happening this month

When Microsoft acquired Minecraft creators Mojang, some might have presumed the company would be restricting the highly popular game to its own platform and other "friendly" platforms. Few probably predicted that Microsoft would actually expand Minecraft's reach not just to other platforms, including its PlayStation rival, but would also take the open-world sandbox games to places and use cases its original creators probably never imagined. That said, one platform remains absent from Minecraft's list but that will finally change this month when Minecraft lands on PlayStation VR.

Minecraft Creeper Crunch Cereal review – Gaming for breakfast

Minecraft Creeper Crunch Cereal review – Gaming for breakfast

How often does something get so big that it gets its own cereal? I guess the answer to that question is probably “a lot,” but I have to admit that I don’t know because I’m not really in the habit of following cereals based on pop culture phenomena. I remember Overwatch getting some kind of cereal. I’m sure there was cereal for Frozen at one point or another. As a child, I even distinctly remember seeing “Stevie’s Stars” cereal on store shelves, featuring and named after none other than famed Detroit Red Wings Captain Steve Yzerman. That, of course, was a Michigan thing, and even then it was probably only a south Michigan thing.

Minecraft Jurassic World DLC tests your skills as a park manager

Minecraft Jurassic World DLC tests your skills as a park manager

Minecraft has long been home to recreations of fantastic fantasy worlds made by players but, from time to time, the game's own developers also do their fair share of bringing the worlds into the game themselves. Tie-ins with popular franchises and films are not uncommon and no real-world disaster is going to put a stop to that. Instead of taking players to the past, the Jurassic World DLC is bringing the past to them to see if they can fare better than hapless movie stars in running a dinosaur-filled park.

Minecraft: Education Edition on Chromebooks is ready for school

It isn't just work that was suddenly plunged into a new world. Schools are also scrambling to adjust to the "new normal", which mostly means holding lessons remotely without direct teacher supervision. That also means relying more heavily on devices, of which Chromebooks and iPads are fiercely competing in the market.

Minecraft VM mod lets you boot Windows 95 to play DOOM

Minecraft VM mod lets you boot Windows 95 to play DOOM

Minecraft has become a seedbed for creativity and ingenuity that has seen no end of extraordinary creations, from recreations of fictional locations to mapping the real world to scale. There have also been attempts at creating a computer out of these blocks, though those computers are more like the calculating machines of centuries past. Thanks to a mod, however, it has actually become possible to run a real computer inside Minecraft, a computer that not only runs Windows 95 but can even run DOOM on Windows 95 inside Minecraft.
