In a very bizarre announcement to come from Mojang and Telltale, it would appear that the story based gaming studio Telltale, known for their award winning titles The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, are now taking on one the strangest franchises to tell a story in... Minecraft.

I do not really have words or a sense of what in the world to say to this announcement. Don't get me wrong, I am still a big Minecraft fan, but seeing it get a story mode is... off-putting to say the least. I have full faith that Telltale could create a very interesting tale for this game, as my trust in them skyrocketed after recently playing their Game of Thrones first episode earlier this month.

I look forward to seeing where this goes, but what is everyone else's take on this

This falls out of the realm of normal video game discussion, sure, but Sony is involved, and I think this is big enough to warrant discussion here.

To put it simply, North Korea has been railing against Sony's upcoming film "The Interview," which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco as two media types sent into the despotic regime to assassinate Kim Jong-Un (with wacky hijinks presumably ensuing). As retaliation, North Korea paid for a hack of Sony Pictures' database, leaking sensitive information such as private emails, employee's personal information, etc. Thing have only escalated from there when the hackers threatened to bomb theaters airing the film.


There's no telling exactly what the studio will do now. According to Wikipedia, the film cost $44 million (not including marketing, of course), and features performers ranging from James Franco and Seth Rogen to Eminem and Kanye West. It'd be almost unthinkable to imagine the company eating the costs and shelving it for good, but is VoD a viable option if theaters have refused to touch it?

We're already seeing aftershocks in the rest of the film industry. After the news, Fox quickly cancelled an upcoming project from Gore Verbinski and Steve Carrell set in North Korea. One has to wonder if this will spread to other mediums, from television to video games. There are plenty of games featuring the country in some fashion or another, like EA's upcoming Homeland 2, where North Korea is the enemy.

I don't know what to say here, really. Maybe that's because South Park already covered it years ago.
