‘Minecraft’ players on the autism spectrum find a safe space on the Autcraft server

TwitterFacebook

One dad wanted to give people on the autism spectrum a safe space to play Minecraft, so he made a troll-free server called Autcraft that has ballooned in popularity.

Stuart Duncan, also known as AutismFather, created Autcraft in 2013. Today it has more than 8,200 members, The Mighty reported, and people outside the community are taking notice.

In a video, Duncan explains what exactly Autcraft is and why it's important for people — kids especially — to have a safe place to Minecraft and be themselves.

Magikarp, the most useless Pokémon ever, is the star of a brand new Pokémon mobile game: Magikarp Jump.

Magikarp Jump, released yesterday on iOS and Google Play, is all about catching Magikarp, training them to jump as high as possible, and competing against other Magikarp in jumping contests. That's pretty much all this dopey-looking fish-mon can do.

Such a sense of accomplishment.

Such a sense of accomplishment.

Instead of running around and catching Pokémon with Pokéballs in traditional Pokémon fashion, you reel in Magikarp with a fishing rod to take them under your wing. The goal is to train your trusty Magikarp enough through feeding and exercise sessions to compete in Magikarp jumping leagues. Read more...

This July, Netflix will wade into the crowded world of video game-to-some-other-screen adaptations with an animated series based on the NES classic, Castlevania.

After watching this first-look trailer, just one word springs to mind: hype.

The anime-inflected take on Simon Belmont's forever war against Dracula and his army of minions strikes the right tone in this minute-long teaser. Maybe it's just the thrill of seeing a lo-fi Netflix app running on NES talking, but there's a lot to be excited about here.

Castlevania comes to Netflix on July 7. Read more...

TwitterFacebook

Google's AlphaGo AI has won over world champion and number one ranked Go player Ke Jie for the second time in a row. 

Since there's only one match left to play, AlphaGo has clutched the overall win in the mini tournament, held from May 23-27 in Wuzhen, China. The best Ke Jie can hope for now is winning the last match for a 1:2 score. 

According to DeepMind founder and CEO Demis Hassabis, the AI assessed that Ke Jie played perfectly at some points in the game. 

Incredible. According to #AlphaGo evaluations Ke Jie is playing perfectly at the moment.
