Cheat Sheet 2/16: Mojang’s Game Jam, Assassin’s Creed III, and Mass Effect 3’s voice commands

The games, they make news.

I tell you it, you listen.

Then go forth and game.

– Notch is partnering with the Humble Bundle folks and holding an in-house game jam for charity. It starts tomorrow, so there’s still time to vote on the theme and genre. Minecraft was made at a game jam, so who knows what’ll pop out of that crazy head?

– Release dates everywhere! Assassin’s Creed III is slated for October 30th and Journey is hitting a lot sooner at March 13th.

– For those of you that can’t get enough Mass Effect 3, the full list of Kinect voice commands has been released. 

– Hulu Plus is coming to the Wii with a free trial and will eventually also hit the 3DS.

– The Nextbox is code named the Durango. I still like mine more. 

That’s it for today,

Same time and place tomorrow,

Until then, good luck.
