Here's how Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered compares to the original

We recently got a look at the official trailer for the upcoming addition to the Call of Duty series, Infinite Warfare, and with it, we got a look at the Modern Warfare remaster. Regardless of how new the trailer is, someone has already made a video comparing the remastered footage we saw to the original game.

It appears as though the remastered scenes are quite the upgrade from the original.

Modern Warfare Remastered will include the full campaign from the original, as well as 10 multiplayer maps. Of the ten, 'Crash,' 'Backlot,' and 'Crossfire' will be included. The game will be included in each of the Special Editions for Infinite Warfare. Whether or not the remastered game will release as a standalone purchase in the future is unknown.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is set to release on November 4 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

After 15 years RuneScape says farewell to Java and hello to new graphics

After 15 years of service RuneScape has said its farewell to Java in favor of a new game client called NXT, making the game both look and run better.

The creators of RuneScape, Jagex, have re-launched the game with a new launcher, NXT, which means the end for trusty Java. The new launcher and all the improvements have been in development for about two years and will according, to Jagex, improve the game greatly.

"This means better RuneScape performance than ever before, and it looks great too – vast viewing distances, dynamic shadows and beautiful lighting effects."

The new launcher has basically no requirements, "Requirements: None." NXT is designed to get the most out of the user's computer so RuneScape will work on almost every system, and if it's not working then there is an error "flag" button to push and a team should fix it.

Launching alongside the new launcher a new quest line has been released, Benedict's World Tour, with eight quests for free players and eight more for paid members. These new quests will, according to the RuneScape team, show off all the new features that comes with the NXT launcher.

The biggest difference between the old RuneScape and the new one is that with the NXT launcher RuneScape will no longer be a browser game, players will have to download it to be able to play.

Telltale's The Walking Dead Season 3 will bring back comic book tie-ins and Clementine

Telltale Games has done their best to keep us busy as we wait for the third season of The Walking Dead with the Michonne mini-series. This year, Telltale will be bringing back The Walking Dead with Season 3, but that's not the only thing they are bringing back.

According to The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, Season 3 will be bringing back Clementine, as well as comic book tie-ins.

"Season 3 of the Telltale series is really exciting to me just because the way that the timeline works, season three will actually be getting pretty close to where we are in the comics concurrently, like the books that are coming out now are roughly in the same time frame that season three will be in," Kirkman explained in an IGN (via GameSpot) video. "There's a lot of really cool, really exciting things coming that I don't think people will expect."

"I think, similar to the Michonne series, there will probably be some more comic book elements that will be working into things in some interesting ways," he explained. "I don't want to reveal too much, but it'll definitely go hand in hand with the comics a little bit more than season two did."

In addition to the comic's story being brought forth in the upcoming season, Clementine will be back – but Kirkman didn't detail what she would be doing.

"We'll be checking in on Clementine again, so we'll be seeing her, seeing where she's at and what's going on with her, which is going to be great."

Minecraft: Education Edition coming this June

Minecraft: Education Edition, a version of the blocky survival game tailored for practical use in schools, will release later this June.

Minecraft has been used in schools for some time now, but its classroom odyssey only began in earnest earlier this year when Mojang and Microsoft outlined the Education Edition program, which builds upon the trial run of MinecraftEDU, an earlier prototype.  

In a recent update, the Minecraft Education team confirmed that the program will begin in May with a beta in over 100 schools and 30 countries, ahead of its official early access release coming in June. Minecraft: Education Edition will be available on Windows 10 and OS X in 11 languages and 41 countries at launch. 

Minecraft: Education Edition is classroom-crafted and includes many unique features designed to support more structured lessons, including custom multiplayer sessions, student photo portfolios, special in-game blocks like signs and borders, and a richer tutorial. Minecraft lessons plans, such as an engineering redstone class and a historical tour through the Giza pyramids, are also available for download.

Minecraft Realms is finally coming to Pocket and Windows 10 edition

Mojang's Owen Hill announced today that the server system Minecraft Realms will be making it's way to the Pocket and Windows 10 editions of Minecraft, something that fans have been waiting for for a while.

"Though we don’t share your love of toilets and guns, we do agree that Minecraft Realms is a great thing that should be spread across the world, and to all editions of Minecraft, " said Hill. "For that reason, I’m happy to announce that we’re working on Realms for Minecraft: Pocket Edition and the Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta." 

Soon the Windows 10 and Pocket editions will be one step closer to being equal to the PC edition.

Minecraft Realms is a  service which makes playing online with friends much easier than before. Users don't need to know how to manage a server to play online, they just use the Realms service. The Minecraft worlds in Realms are always online and can "only be accessed by an approved group of people," so no strangers can hijack your Realms world.

The service also supports cross platform play "between the iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Windows 10 editions of Minecraft… using Xbox Live logins to make that possible." Just like in the main PC version Realms will cost money to use. Mojang hasn't shared their pricing plan yet, but users will not need an Xbox Live Gold membership to be able to play on Realms – it will be an additional fee.

Minecraft Realms for Windows 10 and Pocket won't be out officially for a while, but a free alpha for Android devices is available. Just download the Pocket edition and opt in here.

Though the Windows 10 and Pocket edition has a long way to go to be on the same level as the main PC version the addition of Realms is a step forward.
