Minecraft

  1. Wander Through Westeros and Take the Stairs to the Top of the Wall With Virtuix Omni and Minecraft

    Now with 100% less things that are trying to kill you!

    Virtual reality is rapidly becoming reality with technology like the Oculus Rift, the Virtuix Omni VR treadmill, and more. That also means that our favorite fictional locations are coming a lot closer to reality, too. WesterosCraft has built the world of A Song of Ice and Fire into a Minecraft world that is roughly the size of Los Angeles, and the Virtuix Omni allows you to literally walk all over Westeros for yourself.

  2. Does This Nebula Look Like a Minecraft Creeper to You?

    Quick, somebody send an ocelot up there!

    Creepers, man. You think you're alone dutifully working on your Minecraft tribute to the USS Enterprise at night, when suddenly some green rectangular asshole sneaks up behind you and explodes you both to oblivion. Luckily this one's pretty far away from us. Like, at least a couple of light years.

  3. Neila Rey’s Nerdy Workouts Make Me Actually Want to Work Out, and That’s Saying Something

    Maybe it's just that for the first time in my life I actually miss having time to work out, but Neila Rey's pop culture themed work outs are really  as physically challenging and logistically easy as one could hope, and for every kind of nerd reference you might care to make. We've posted only a few here, there are lots more at her site.

  4. Minecraft Wasn’t Hacked, But You Should Probably Change Your Password If You Use the Internet

    But you already prudently change your password at regular intervals, right? Yeah, me neither.

    No, I don't mean that in a hyperbolic, "hackers are going to steal your identity and become an evil pod-person version of you, freak the Hell out!" way. It's a good idea to change your password often, but it's an especially good idea if you use a site that employs an OpenSSL version that's vulnerable to the recently discovered Heartbleed bug.

  5. So It Begins: Minecraft Developer Kills Plans for Oculus Rift Integration Because of Facebook

    This is why we can't have nice virtual things.

    Amidst the obligatory Twitter jokes about Facebook buying VR system Oculus Rift for $2 billion dollars were some legitimate concerns: how will this acquisition change the flow of progress for the Oculus itself? Well, it means we won't officially get to kill creepers and farm for gold in virtual reality anytime soon.

  6. Not Only Might the Minecraft Movie Be a Thing, It Might Also Be Live-Action

    What's the point of non-pixelated pick axes?

    We were confused and pleasantly surprised last night when Markus Persson of Mojang AB tweeted out that he was in talks to develop a Minecraft film. Now, Deadline has reported some extra details about the movie deal that make even less sense.

  7. Minecraft Is Getting Its Own Lego Movie

    Pros and Cons

    The Creepers want tickets. They promise to be real quiet during the movie. Reeeal quiet.

  8. Minecraft’s Creator Just Tweeted That He’s Working With Warner Bros. on a Minecraft Movie

    Well that was inevitable.

    Minecraft creator Markus Persson just tweeted that he's working with Warner Bros. on a Minecraft movie, so the Internet is probably about to explode. No doubt Warner is excited about this after the success that is The LEGO Movie, so a Minecraft movie seems like a no-brainer.

  9. These Aren’t Your Grandma’s Lockets (Unless Your Grandma Is A Rad Geek)

    DO WANT

    Lockets are pretty awesome.  But make those lockets geeky and suddenly they're even more awesome.  Etsy Store ThreeTwelveTrinkets sells these super cool geeky lockets that include fandoms as varied as Marvel, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, and Minecraft.  You can even custom order one if you don't see anything you like in their current collection.  And, as an added bonus, they're super affordable.

  10. How Come Nobody’s Really Tried To Copy Minecraft Yet? [Video]

    Seriously, there should be, like, 20,000 shitty knock-offs by now.

    Okay, hear us out. Yes, ripping off ideas from other, better material is probably bad. But as PBS Game/Show points out, Minecraft is ridiculously popular among gamers and non-gamers alike, so you'd expect more post-Minecraft game developers to be borrowing from their success in a big way. So what gives?
