Minecraft 1.5 brings Update Aquatic Phase 2, and beta 1.6 adds barrier blocks

Minecraft has always existed as a work in progress, but ever since Microsoft purchased the property, it seems like new updates are being released at a record-setting pace. Maybe it just appears that way because of the game's massive popularity and coverage, as the last big update actually happened two months ago. Strangely enough, that update was broken up into two segments, and only just yesterday was the second half released when Minecraft 1.5 hit the digital shelves.

If there is one thing in this universe you can rely on, it's the constant stream of updates for Minecraft. Ever since Microsoft purchased the property, there has been a clear push to get this title on just about every platform out there, and it would seem the company has succeeded.

Minecraft's massive 'Better Together Update' is out on mobile, Xbox One, and Windows 10

Minecraft PE 'Better Together Update' enters beta, will have cross-play with Xbox and Nintendo Switch

One of the major problems with Minecraft is the number of different editions, with varying level of multiplayer cross-play. This stems from different code bases - the console versions are based on the original Java game, while Pocket/Windows 10 Edition use the same C++ code base. But the upcoming Minecraft PE 1.2 update, nicknamed the 'Better Together Update,' aims to address this.

Minecraft's next adventure arrives with Story Mode - Season Two

When Minecraft exploded on the scene I was one of the countless people who assumed it would just be a fad. We were all wrong, and the game has sold more copies than any other game except Tetris. It's so popular that Microsoft put up $2.5 billion to acquire the game's developer Mojang. Part of the game's strength has been catering to kids and adults alike, and it does that through several different games on various platforms. Minecraft: Story Mode arrived on Android a couple of years ago and has been immensely popular. Fans of that game will be thrilled to hear that the sequel has just been launched.

Timecraft is a cool Minecraft-inspired Android Wear watch face by Tha PHLASH

What's time but a series of building blocks of infinitesimally small moments? You change one block and the whole structure could be modified, you add and add and add more blocks, hoping the final result is beautiful and meaningful, and you look around at others' structures learning from them and sometimes envying or criticizing them. That's one philosophical way of introducing this new watch face by Tha PHLASH, Timecraft.

Like its name and all of the screenshots here suggest, Timecraft is inspired by Minecraft. The signature blocky design is there, the green and grey/brown colors are present as well, and although I've never actively played the game or got lost in its world, I can easily spot the similarities based on what little I've seen from it.

Minecraft PE 1.0 is available with higher max block height, igloos, and an endgame dragon

Minecraft hit upon something primal in our human nature; we like to make things. This game lets you make pretty much anything your heart desires, provided it's composed of voxel-like blocks. The previously teased v1.0 update to Minecraft Pocket Edition has landed on Android, and it adds a number of nice gameplay extras, plus there's something of an endgame with a dragon to slay.
