A map featuring the UK made entirely of Minecraft blocks has had an upgrade.
Created by Ordnance Survey (OS), the original map re-created 224,000 sq km (86,000 sq miles) of Britain using more than 22 billion blocks.
The updated version uses 83 billion blocks, with each one representing 25m of real-world British soil, road or grass.
The Minecraft UK map is so detailed that people should be able to find their own house on it.
Ordnance Survey said it would put an interactive map on its main webpage so people could generate co-ordinates to lead them to their home on the Minecraft version.

CCC Says: “In the world of sports games, you set yourself apart from your forerunners by including brand new modes or features. When FIFA 15 came out, I was excited to see what the game had to offer. Im not the biggest soccer fan out there. Im mostly just a casual watcher, content to scream alongside my friends during the World Cup, but FIFA has always been an intriguing game, fun enough to play, but also creating a significant cultural impact. Just look at John Green and the Swindon Town Swoodilypoopers, and the eventual Nerdfighteria sponsoring of AFC Wimbledon. If you havent read up on this story, you should. Its a fantastic example of the power the internet has to make change in the world but I digress. The point is, Ive kept track of FIFAs releases even though I cant remember team names, star players, or stats for the life of me.”

Tom Franse, GIZORAMA – “Wasteland 2 comes with a history. Its a sequel to the 1988 game, Wasteland, and a spiritual successor to Fallout 1 and 2. Remarkably, most of the developer team has reunited quarter of a decade after the original, to bring light to Wasteland 2. And light it has seen. Their Kickstarter campaign, with one of the most entertaining Kickstarter videos to date, supplied them with almost 3 million dollars. Two years later, Wasteland 2 is a fact, and it doesnt disappoint.”

Diablo 3: Ultimate Edition is easily the best edition of the title to hit consoles. PC gamers are probably chuckling knowing that they have had access to the Reaper of Souls DLC long before the console release. However, the PS4/Xbox One version is as good as the PC version. Actual, dare I say, better than the PC version. Even though we have had to wait a bit longer to get our hands on the title it has certainly been worth the wait and is easily one of the best titles to release this year. Those that have been playing the PC version and were planning to jump to the console release I have some bad news. Unfortunately, characters cant be ported over from the PC or Mac version.
We also have a competition currently running on the site to win a copy of the game.

Christopher Buffa (Prima Games): Survival horror fans braved Outlast and barely made it through the infamous P.T. demo with their nerves intact. Now its time to increase the scares even further with Alien: Isolation, arguably the most intense game to come from Sega since Condemned: Criminal Origins and its creepier sequel.
Developed by Creative Assembly, Isolation gives a nod to Ridley Scotts iconic 1979 fright fest, Alien. You dont combat swarms of extraterrestrials with a fully loaded pulse rifle, similar to James Camerons Aliens. Instead, you match wits with a single creature that literally appears out of nowhere, and maybe you have a flamethrower thatll deter (note we did not say the word kill) the monster. Essentially, youll spend hours hiding inside of lockers too petrified to leave, staring through the slits and at the crude motion tracker that tells you when the Alien is close. Quite frankly, its rare to experience this sort of frenzied tension in a video game….
