Minecraft for Xbox 360 getting Creative Mode, more in next update

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1875 days, 4 hours, 4 minutes ago
Thursday, October 04, 2012 8:48:58 AM GMT
The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft has another big update coming and PlayXBLA has run through all of the new features. First and foremost, the Creative mode is going to be included in the game, which allows players to fly, destroy a large number of blocks at a time, and build with as many blocks of each type as they want. It turns the game into a real sandbox creation engine, leaving the player free from worrying about finding diamonds or getting blown up by a Creeper. (more)

The US is far from backing professional hockey with the same blind devotion it has for baseball and football, but the NHL's popularity continues to make inroads into homes and bars across the country – though the coming NHL lockout will stifle that progression. Heralding the potential stoppage and/or arrival of the new season comes NHL 13, arguably EA's best hockey simulation to date. (more)
