For Minecraft content creators, offering a private server to your subscribers is one of the best incentives you can offer to your fans. Giving your audience the opportunity to play together, and with you, goes a long way towards creating a strong, self-sustaining community. But, you might not have the technical know-how to set up the server yourself. The good news is there are tons of third-party services that make setting up and managing your fan server quick and simple. Here are a few of the most popular options.

Praise be, It Looks Good! - Minecraft Story Mode

Posted by Greg Rozen

Jul 9, 2015 8:30:00 AM

Since its announcement near the end of last year, Minecraft: Story Mode has been one big mystery. Every element at the core of the franchise's power and popularity- building unique creations, playing together, ignoring any semblance of plot or long-term goals for open sand-box style adventuring, even its malleability when it comes to mods- seems absent, at least when it comes to the concept. Throw in the fact that the game would be developed by Telltale, a studio that’s spent the last few years single-handedly revitalizing the point-and-click genre with epic storytelling, complex cascading choice systems, and deep, brilliantly executed conversation mechanics, and they really had me wondering whether “Story Mode” was really where Minecraft needed to go.

Money and art are sort of like oil and water, sometimes. It can be really hard to talk about the two together without things becoming uncomfortable. Regardless, I'm going to do it anyway.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

E3 - Kneel Before the Great and Powerful Sony!

Being a diehard fan often means opening yourself up to some serious disappointment. When you really love something, a game, a movie, a television show, you want as much of it as you can get your hands on, and every tease of something new, the potential for a new season, or a sequel, or ancillary comics or books, can drive you right to the bottom of the well when those projects fall apart. Abandoned intellectual properties. Unfinished sequels. Dangling plot threads, left unresolved. These things drive you mad.

TwitchCon putting the Twitch in TwitchCon... Twitch.

We’ve discussed before how conventions are becoming a central component in the world of gaming video celebrities. With creators taking over events like PAX with their panels, event shows, Q&As and autograph sessions, seeing and interacting with let’s players and streamers is the reason why many choose to attend these mega-events, while the allure of early-access to as-of-yet-unreleased games and mountains of swag used to be the main draw. More and more, general gaming shows are transforming into an extension of these online communities, the presence of superstars like Markiplier or the Sidemen overwhelming that of major game studios.

Twitch Bans "Hatred" - I'm Ambivalent

Posted by Greg Rozen

Jun 4, 2015 8:30:00 AM

I don’t know how to feel about Hatred. The mass-murder simulator has been a subject of scorn and revulsion since it first announced itself this past October. Prior to its official release this past Monday, the powers that be over at Twitch made the decision, without naming “Hatred” specifically, that adult-only rated games would not be allowed on their streaming service. That this is exactly the kind of attention the developers were looking for when they created the game didn’t change anything; they don’t want this game anywhere near their site.
