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 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.

Minecraft is so big it’s getting a breakfast cereal

When it comes to video games, few have become so big that they get their own breakfast cereal. The fairly short list includes franchises like Angry Birds, Super Mario, and Overwatch, but it won't be long before we see Minecraft join them. Kellogg's has announced that it's making a breakfast cereal themed around Minecraft, and that can only mean one thing: Green, Creeper-colored marshmallows.

Minecraft Dungeons Jungle DLC released at same time as free update

If you've been playing Minecraft Dungeons since launch, you've been playing a little over a month. If you've been playing that long, you might be ready for a DLC already. But for the rest of the world - the people that've not yet gotten in on the action - is it too intimidating to start a game that's already rolling with an expansion just a month after initial release? In any case, the goal for the profit-minded creators at Minecraft is clear.
