In many countries around the world, schools and educational institutions have yet to reopen as governments are trying to find the best way to go about it due to the coronavirus pandemic. While students are still receiving their education online through online classes, part of the experience is being on campus, hanging out with friends, and so on.
With social distancing measures being put into place, it means that more people are being sent home to work or to study. It also means that large gatherings have been cancelled or postponed, such as school graduation ceremonies. Graduations are a huge part of a student’s life, which is why over in Japan, students have come up with an interesting way around the issue.
In the past, we have seen how Minecraft can be used for all kinds of purposes, such as being used as an educational tool to teach children about technology, to being a hobbyist game where we’ve seen how some players have used Minecraft and its building tools to construct entire worlds.
The problem with everyone being so connected these days is that at a click of a button, news and spread like wildfire, even if it isn’t necessarily true. For Minecraft players who have come across a rumor suggesting that the game’s servers will be shutting down at the end of 2020, it isn’t true.
For the longest time ever, games playable on the PS4 would remain only playable amongst PS4 gamers. This means that even if the PC or the Xbox One had the same game, gamers could not play with each other. However, in recent years, cross-play has slowly become more mainstream and for Minecraft players on the PS4, it looks like it is finally here.
Due to the fact that more games are being created as multiplayer games, it also means that there is a rise in online communities, which in turn has also unfortunately resulted in some of them being rather toxic. However, in a bid to try and create a less toxic environment for gamers, a Vatican priest by the name of Fr. Robert Ballecer, decided to create the Vatican’s Minecraft server where […]

A couple of years ago, the developers of Minecraft announced their plans to upgrade the graphics of the game through a software update. Unfortunately, last week Mojang announced that due to the technical hurdles involved, they would not be able to release the update, which we’re sure is a bit of a bummer for fans of the game.
Minecraft does not exactly sport the best graphics we’ve seen in a video game, but it works. However, back in 2017, the developers behind the game Mojang announced plans to issue an update that would essentially bump the graphics in the game. The update was scheduled for a release in the fall of 2017, but was later pushed to 2018, which it obviously missed.
Mojang, the developer of the popular Minecraft game, has confirmed that it’s going to end support for Minecraft: Stor Mode on June 25th, 2019. Those who play the title are now advised to download their episodes prior to the cutoff date or they will lose access. This game’s delisting isn’t surprising given that other games that Telltale Games had created have disappeared as well after the publisher shut down unexpectedly […]
To say that Minecraft has done well for itself would be an understatement. It’s an immensely popular title, selling a huge number of copies across the globe. Microsoft has now released the latest sales figures for the title. More than 176 million copies of Minecraft have been sold across the globe, according to Microsoft.
A little over a week ago, Microsoft released a teaser video which seemed to hint at the company’s plans at taking on augmented reality (AR) based games such as Pokemon GO. The trailer teased that the company would be launching an AR version of Minecraft, and sure enough they have.
Are you looking for a fun way to spend your weekends? If you are, then you might be interested to learn that to celebrate Minecraft turning 10 years old, Microsoft has decided that you will now be able to play the original version of Minecraft directly in your browser for free. This will only be playable in creative mode, meaning that there will be no monsters for you to fight.
Using augmented reality (AR) for gaming makes a lot of sense, although admittedly it took the success of Pokemon GO for developers to really sit up and pay attention to it. For those who are looking forward to experiencing more AR based games in the future, Microsoft could have something for you.
