Minecraft’s first Caves & Cliffs snapshot adds copper, amethyst, and lots more

Minecraft has another big update planned for next summer, but you don’t need to wait nearly that long to try out the Caves & Cliffs update. As Mojang do with Minecraft, a “snapshot” build has been released today containing some of the features and new blocks planned for next year. You can load up the Java Edition of the game and swap over if you’d like to try your hand at building with copper or take a peep through a spyglass. (more…)

Mojang don’t want you to fight the scary Wardens in Minecraft’s Caves & Cliffs update

During their recent Minecraft Live presentation, Mojang introduced quite a lot of new blocks, features, and mobs (hello, axolotls) coming in the Caves & Cliffs update next summer. Among them is this horrible beastie, The Warden, who will live down in the Deep Dark cave biomes. Wardens have oodles of health and can slap you in the face for massive damage, so I know there are confident adventurers out there thinking “yeah, I’m going to kill it”. During a new Q&A session about the update, Mojang say they would rather you didn’t, or at least that they won’t encourage you…

Frog Fractions adds over 100 new secrets to the Hop’s Iconic Cap DLC

As is, the Frog Fractions: Game Of The Decade Edition had secrets aplenty already. That’s not just an amphibian with a gift for mathematics and that hat DLC is more than a fashion choice. It turned out that the Hop’s Iconic Cap DLC was sort of another Frog Fractions sequel. Talk about bigger on the inside. Quite a cap. The game’s developer says that as of today, Hop’s Cap has gotten stuffed with even more secrets. (more…)

Overland now has all-dog squads in newest update

Despite being very, very bad at its turn-based tactical survival, I quite enjoy Overland. I always welcome a reason to jump back in and utterly fail at surviving an apocalyptic road trip across the country. Finji have given me another fantastic reason to get back behind the wheel. In its newest update, Overland adds an “all dogs” setting that guarantees your squad will only be made up of furry friends. Also there are pugs now. (more…)

No Man’s Sky’s next update Origins will launch next week

No Man’s Sky is in for yet another update to its giant spacefaring simulation sometime next week, Hello games say. They’ve shared the title for the new update and hinted that it’s the beginning of some big new piece of the game, but don’t appear to be sharing more until the update and its patch notes drop next week. That won’t stop me from taking some guesses based on the new artwork though, now will it? (more…)
