The first half of 2017 was crammed with exceptional games. That high tide ebbed in May, and I’ve spent the last couple of weeks going back and catching up on what I missed. I’ve also spent a lot of time playing Minecraft, a game that came out almost six years ago.
Fancy construction sets are nice, but there’s plenty of building to do in Minecraft proper. The first wave of Minecraft Adventure Figures from Jinx are the perfect way to just hang out at your desk with Steve and the gang.
Minecraft’s “Better Together” update launches today. It allows players on Xbox, mobile, VR, and Windows 10 to play together.

Coming soon to all versions of Minecraft, the Adventure Time pack turns one of the more popular fan-made mashups into something you’ll be able to buy.
Coming July 1 to a Lego store near you, the 2,863 piece Mountain Cave set is the most ambitious (and most expensive) official Lego Minecraft set yet. As an added bonus , it actually looks like a mine someone has crafted.
After a minor controversy, Minecraft will change up the way players tame parrots, VICE Motherboard reports. And while it sounds like the least controversial mechanic in gaming history, the patch was spurned by a Reddit post with 37,000 upvotes that accused the game of potentially endangering real-life parrots.
For most of its life, Mojang has allowed private Minecraft servers to exist with few, if any, caveats. The largest servers, like Hypixel and Mineplex, have player bases rivaling those of full independent games, as well as enough staff to create experiences that can be almost unrecognizable as Minecraft. But in June of…
A new add on pack to Minecraft will add locations and characters from the Fallout series.
SethBling is a master at making games do amazing things. He’s managed to inject the code for Flappy Bird into Super Mario World and created a bot that learned how to play Mario. Now, he’s built a working Atari 2600 emulator in Minecraft. And he’s done it all without any mods.

After much hinting, foreshadowing, and teasing, the newest Minecraft snapshot is out, showing us at long last what the much vaunted ‘exploration update’ has in store.
A war is raging on one of the longest-running servers in Minecraft, 2b2t. Some of the battle is fought with diamond swords and lava buckets, as you might expect, but the rest of it unfolds with racist memes, shocking gore and porn, as well as monstrous contraptions designed to make the server literally unplayable.…
Following fast on the heels of Mojang’s first console mini-game—Battle—is another competitive arena game mode, but this time with a little bit more polish and a lot more fun.
