Super Mario 64 Has Been Completely Remade In Minecraft

Those of us who were gaming in 1996 might remember that first time we got our hands on Super Mario 64 and felt the foundation of 3D games get shaken up underneath us. It's kind of crazy that, twenty years later, that entire game could be completely remade inside of another game.

This Minecraft map lovingly recreates the entire game and, as a bonus, the trailer even invokes the camera movements and music of the credits sequence for the game.

Check out the video below. What games would you want to see remade with another game's toolset?

Bioware Confirms That Single-Player Updates For Mass Effect: Andromeda Are Over

Bioware Confirms That Single-Player Updates For Mass Effect: Andromeda Are Over

It has been a long, strange road for Mass Effect: Andromeda, EA's follow-up to the wildly successful Mass Effect trilogy. After the turbulent launch and band-aid patches to help fix the game after launch, fans were hoping for something more substantial for the game's single-player campaign and story. Bioware has officially confirmed, however, that all work on the single-player side of the game has ended.

In a blog post today, Bioware explained that their attention will now focus on the multiplayer part of the game and they plan to fill out the remaining story with other forms of media. This means that any DLC expansions for the story are now merely hypothetical and will not be coming to the game.

It's a bit of a sad, but not entirely unexpected end for Mass Effect: Andromeda, which had been the center of rumors and gossip for months over its poor performance and critical reception. Hopefully EA figures out a way to bring Mass Effect back in the same vein it was last generation, because this would be a poor way for it to go out.

You Can Play A Free 8-Bit Tie-In Game To Stephen King's It Movie

Stephen King's It movie launches on September 8. To pass the time before you can be terrified by Pennywise the clown all over again (played by Bill Skarsgård in this remake), you can now play a free 8-bit game to get you in the mood.

Just announced today, It: Enter The Sewer is a free web game that allows you to explore Pennywise's sewers, equipped with eerie music and Pennywise's sinister laugh. You control Georgie's paper hat boat, attempting to avoid obstacles and collect balloons for high scores. The game is pretty simplistic and serves more as a fun little distraction and nod to the movie than anything else.
