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?

Today is a big day for Minecraft fans and action RPG fans alike, as today, Minecraft Dungeons is launching to the masses.

Minecraft Dungeons needs one feature that’d change the whole game

I expected Minecraft Dungeons to be like a LEGO-esque iteration of the classic dungeon crawler game Diablo. I expected that we'd get a kid-friendly blast from the past.

Minecraft RTX beta is almost here at last

Back in August, Mojang and NVIDIA announced that ray tracing was on the way to Minecraft. At the time, the companies said that ray tracing features would launch in beta at some point in 2020, then went more or less silent about the feature after that.

Minecraft Dungeons might be the perfect game for quarantine

Minecraft Dungeons might be the perfect game for quarantine

Today a new wave of players were added to the closed Beta sessions for Minecraft Dungeons. This game's standard release is still a few weeks away - it'll be out on May 26, 2020 - but it's already generating buzz as a game that'll be released at just about the most ideal moment possible. What better time for a family-friendly dungeon crawler for multiple platforms than this?
