Blizzard hasn’t tried to hide the fact that it’s going very, very dark on Diablo 4. In the game’s announcement trailer, shown at BlizzCon earlier this month, a trio of adventurers were eviscerated, their insides woven into a hideous flesh cape to be worn by the demon Lilith. Minecraft Dungeons doesn’t go quite so hard on the human-entrails-as-fashion vibe, but it’s got almost everything else you might want from a dungeon-crawler.

There was a virtual sheep roaming around in our Times Square office today thanks to Minecraft Earth, the new augmented reality mobile game that lets players make, wreck and otherwise interact with life-size Minecraft builds.

Honey is sticky. You probably already knew that. But did you know that if you smear a bunch of honey on a wall you can run on that wall because the honey is sticky enough to hold your weight? Well, at least that’s how it works in Minecraft. In the latest update for the game, Mojang has added sticky honey blocks and players are using these new blocks to pull off some sweet parkour moves.

Minecraft is a game where you sometimes mine stuff and sometimes craft stuff. But one player decided to skip the whole mining bit of Minecraft and decided to beat the game without ever mining a single block. This isn’t easy and involves a lot of scavenging, some expert bucket skills, some luck and a lot of patience.

If you're a parent with young kids and haven’t picked up a controller in a while, you might see your kids’ video games as mindless fun, or as their reward for cleaning their room. But video games can be more than that. While immersed in a virtual world, children can learn how to solve complex problems — a skill they’ll need long after they run out of lives on the screen.

Minecraft Earth, an augmented reality mobile game based on the hugely popular series, is coming to a closed beta later this summer. To tide you over, Mojang released a short video yesterday on that shows off some gameplay. It’s incredibly charming.

Bob Ross was famous for his show which helped teach basically anyone how to paint wonderful landscapes and vistas. But, what if you wanted to create a piece of art, but you didn’t have any paint or brushes? Well, one YouTuber decided to recreate a Bob Ross painting using Minecraft.

For a beautiful few years, you have near-complete control over what your child plays. You decide what’s allowed and when, what to play together, which gems from the past to share with an excited five-year-old. Then a little more time passes, and suddenly the situation is completely different.

I’ve been a casual player of both Minecraft and of the augmented reality game Pokémon Go, so when Minecraft Earth was announced as an augmented reality version of Minecraft, I was curious. There’s a lot to Minecraft, so I was sceptical that the entire game could be scaled to a touchscreen experience on your phone.

After playing a demo today at E3, I can tell that the game is going to ruin my life. You can scale everything about Minecraft into a phone-sized game, and it’s a marvel.

As old as Minecraft is, I’ll never get tired of appreciating just how good it looks when people put the effort in. I know a lot of games can get modded to Hell and back and look great, but there’s something about the distance blocky ol’ Minecraft has to travel to get there that makes it particularly special.
