Rob McElhenney of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia fame will direct the Minecraft movie. The writer and actor, who's directed forthcoming TV movie Pariah as well as several episodes of the comedy show, made the announcement via Twitter.

McElhenney plays insecure, martial arts obsessed Mac in the cult FX comedy, and if he can bring just a bit of the same inventiveness and offbeat sense of humour to the movie then it could be something quite interesting.

For everybody wondering how exactly the hell Telltale Games was going to drag a story out of the world's most popular voxel building game, wonder no longer.

Here's the first trailer for narrative adventure Minecraft: Story Mode, shown off at this year's Minecon.

Mojang's Owen Hill captured the 20,000,005th sale as it popped up on the game's stat tracking site. That was yesterday, and another 7,992 people have snapped it up as of this post.

Microsoft HoloLens demonstrated with specially designed version of Minecraft. We get to see the game actually 'projected' through the headgear and it couldn't look more awesome. We can even 'pinch' to manipulate the view.

The wearer has access to special commands, like being able to call down a lightning strike, and can 'explore' areas of the map other players can't see.

Mojang 'correct' Minecraft username while searching for harassing ID

We've all had trouble at one time or another with logins - usually because we can't remember a particular username and password combo. One Minecraft user in their frustration created a new one as 'MojangSucksDicks'.

They've had that for years when suddenly the welcome message inexplicably changed to 'NoWeDont'. Apparently it was a sheer coincidence as Mojang's Marc Watson was on the lookout for a genuine harassment notice.
