During the Oculus' second virtual reality conference, Oculus Connect 2, Oculus Founder and CEO Palmer Luckey announced that Minecraft will make it's way onto the upcoming consumer Oculus Rift.

Luckey took to the stage during the keynote Sept. 24, touting the upcoming experiences that consumers could expect from the device which is set to release in the first quarter of 2016. But his big announcement, which he yelled to the audience, was that the open world, block-building, resource-driven, social phenomenon Minecraft is coming to virtual reality.

It's not a huge surprise, given that Oculus has been working extensively with Microsoft, who owns Minecraft.

Unfortunately for Oculus, the announcement didn't show anything near as amazing as Microsoft's demonstration of their Hololens augmented reality tech working with Minecraft at last E3.

Luckey didn't give any specific details on date or price, so we'll just have to keep waiting for more.

Well, in a weird turn, Mojang has announced the director for that Minecraft movie.

Rob McElhenney, one of the creators and stars of FX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia will go behind the camera and direct whatever in the heck the Minecraft movie will be.

Interestingly, according to his IMDB page, McElhenney has only directed three episodes of Always Sunny, one short movie with Danny DeVito and a TV movie called Pariah which hasn't even aired yet. That seems like a big brand to hand off to such a small resume.

Oh, he's also the guy who gained an extra 50 pounds for the TV show because he thought it would be funny.



And it really was.

Even though we've known about the movie for over a year, there's been little in the way of details circling the production. I guess they'll now get to work in figuring out how to possibly make a movie from Minecraft.

There will probably be a pickaxe.

Debuted at Minecon 2015, Minecraft: Story Mode is a 5 episode adventure series from Telltale, set in the Minecraft Universe.  What could possibly happen in a scripted Minecraft story? Well, 

Players will control protagonist Jesse throughout the season, as portrayed by actor Patton Oswalt. Jesse and his group of friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone; four adventurers who slayed an Ender Dragon. The Order is the very best at what they do: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect. While at EnderCon, Jesse and his friends discover that something is wrong... something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and they must set out on a journey to find The Order of the Stone if they are to save their world from oblivion.

This is what's going to happen as long as Outside refuses to release new DLC.

Twitch streamer thorlar has been working on this single piece of pixel art in Minecraft since January 5 of this year. Hundreds of hours (and one can presume hundreds of cups of coffee) later, we have this glorious mosaic of Sarah Kerrigan from StarCraft flanked by Deathwing from World of Warcraft on the left and Diablo on the right.

Hey! Hey, Blizzard! Over here! You've got a big fan over here!

Here's the video showcasing the final product:
