'Minecraft' Update 1.12 Brings A 'World Of Color' To Mojang's Sandbox

The long-awaited 12th post-launch patch for Minecraft is finally ready for consumption, Mojang announced on Wednesday morning, and the latest build of the ultra-popular sandbox game can be downloaded directly from the Minecraft launcher. The changes in this week’s patch aren’t as substantial as we’ve seen in previous updates; however, we suspect there will be more than a few fans among those who still see Minecraft as a creative outlet and not just a foundation for mods. Mojang may not have tweaked many of the game’s mechanical underpinnings in Minecraft Update 1.12, but the patch still manages to impact a variety of game systems. The World of Color Update delivers… Read More »

According to the devoted souls over at Sims Community, a Pets expansion has been rumored for 115 days now. The count officially began when Pets code was found in the toddler update in January because the evidence became a bit more concrete, but Pets has been rumored for more than a year.

Clash Of Clans ’ next big update is officially on the horizon as Supercell has zeroed in on its release window. In an official forum post, the developers told fans not to expect much before May 11. This news arrives after an update to the same thread Friday morning. In that edit we learned that, unlike previous patches, this one probably won’t be revealed via video sneak peeks. This aberration from the trend compelled many fans to assume the update’s release date was as imminent as this Tuesday; however, those expectations have been kept in check thanks to this most recent estimate. In the same vein it’s added that, just… Read More »

Corebird Twitter App Update Brings a Handful of New Features

An update to desktop Linux Twitter app Corebird is available for download. Corebird 1.5 features with a modest set of improvements, including a redesigned account wizard and the ability to quickly save media attachments in tweets using right-click > “Save As”.

We’ve reached a new month, which brings new games that NVIDIA is always happy to prepare for. This week they have released another iteration for release 381 of their GeForce driver. While less feature-packed than some of the recent driver updates, with no new tech being in these updates, there is a slight slant toward SLI and multi-GPU in the round which may please SLI users.
