It is official. Mojang posted on their own website that, "Yes, the deal is real. Mojang is being bought by Microsoft." This is probably great news for Microsoft as purchasing a giant such as Minecraft is bound to make them a lot more than they spent. One thing Microsoft isn't getting, however, is the brilliant mind of Minecraft creator, Notch.
Deep Silver have today announced the release date for their upcoming "third-person single-player survival mystery spin-off" Escape Dead Island. Although announced only quite recently, fans can expect to get their hands on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC title sooner than expected.
Obsidian have posted an advertisement looking for an experienced character designer for an MMORPG they're working on. Although the job description doesn't give much in the way of information, it does say that the art design is "highly stylized," so expect something a little unusual. There's also potential good news for fans of time travel.
The human race enjoys a good bit of drama, which is why the allegations against Zoe Quinn and the cast of the Usual Suspects is crashing internet forums and causing controversy up and down. The game at the heart of all this, Depression Quest, is still relatively ignored, despite tens of thousands of people obsessing over its creator.
It’s no secret that WoW’s age old formula is beginning to feel outdated by this point, but it looks as if the Warlords of Draenor could be the shot in the arm the classic MMO needs.
Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are being re-released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC later this year, and while owners of the original titles on Steam are getting a 50% discount on the upgrade, some members of Valve's community are angry that they're not going to get the improved versions for absolutely nothing. The developers, 4A Games, have taken some time to explain just why that is, and it goes far beyond the "don't be greedy" that it could have been.
Hundreds of dedicated Metal Gear Solid fans have signed a petition to bring the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection to PC. People around the world are adding their name to the list hoping to bring some of the most celebrated narrative franchises to Steam.
After the fanbase-splitting ending to Mass Effect 3, a survey concerning the future of the franchise was always going to bring out people who wanted their opinions heard. While it's hard to envy the guy that has to go through it all over the coming months, one thing is certain: there have been an awful lot of responses.
EA have this morning sent out an email confirming that owners of The Sims 2 will be receiving the "Ultimate Edition" of the game for free via Origin. Later this month they'll be dropping technical support for the 2004 hit, and want everybody to have "the most up-to-date" version in their collection. If you're a fan, prepare yourself for a huge amount of new DLC.
When you get a decently sized library on Steam, certain things will begin to annoy you. Maybe it's the fact that the older GTA titles are listed twice in both PC and Mac variants, or that your Tomb Raider collection is totally out of order? It's not really the end of the world, not until you notice it anyway, at which point you'd trade in your left hand for someone to do something. Well, put down the meat cleaver, Steam's latest update fixes the issue, no blood necessary.
