It’s a game that’s blown up on the PC scene with an incredible mod community that continues to give new and creative life to a game world that is one of the largest game worlds to date with an area roughly 102.4 billion squared kilometers in size. For those who need a visual comparison that’s larger than the area of Neptune. Minecraft is a virtual blocky world full of endless possibilities and one that has captured the imaginations of children and adults alike. Some of the most creative uses have been to recreate scale models of popular settings like a 1:1 scale replica of the USS Enterprise, or all of Final Fantasy VII’s Midgar, or even the Mines of Moria. Verizon even teamed up to create cell phone towers and a working cell phone complete with an internet browser and video call capabilities. In that aspect alone I have nothing but the highest respect for Minecraft as a tool, and a software capable of doing what is conventionally unthinkable. And that’s only the first component of Minecraft. There are three main gameplay modes: survival, adventure and create. I’ve talked a little about create which gives players an infinite amount of almost all blocks and are invulnerable. Survival shares many of the same building properties, but there is now a day/night cycle that unleashes enemies at you unless you design your sanctuary properly. Players will also have health, hunger, and armour bars, and oxygen bars when underwater. Adventure mode lets you interact with mobs and flip switches or pull levels, but destroying blocks using tools with a CanDestroy data tag on it. Similarly, you can only place blocks if said block has a "CanPlace" data tag on it, making this mode perfect for the use of your adventure map. ]]> GameTrailers Shuts Down http://www.gamingunion.net/news/12532/gametrailers-shuts-down/ http://www.gamingunion.net/news/12532/gametrailers-shuts-down/ Tue, 9 Feb 2016 16:24:04 EST GameTrailers, a site that was once one of the most popular on the internet where you would watch game trailers, has announced that it will be ceasing operations today. ]]> Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter Releases On May 27 http://www.gamingunion.net/news/12531/sherlock-holmes-the-devils-daughter-releases-on-may-27/ http://www.gamingunion.net/news/12531/sherlock-holmes-the-devils-daughter-releases-on-may-27/ Tue, 9 Feb 2016 15:41:59 EST Bigben Interactive has announced that Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter will release on the 27th of May.]]> Kingdom Hearts Union: Episode 89 http://www.gamingunion.net/podcasts/kingdom-hearts-union-episode-89--305.html http://www.gamingunion.net/podcasts/kingdom-hearts-union-episode-89--305.html Wed, 31 Dec 1969 19:00:00 EST Welcome to Kingdom Hearts Union Episode 89!
