Notch has announced via his Twitter page that a Minecraft movie in is the works with Warner Bros. Roy Lee (The Lego Movie) has been announced as the producer for the film. Deadline is reporting that it will be a live-action take on the game. Given how poorly most video game movies turn out, I don’t personally have high hopes for this, but who knows? Maybe they’ll make it work.

Cel Damage HD – Logo & Press Release

Independent video game developer Finish Line Games announced today that it is bringing the chaotic, cartoon-inspired vehicle combat title, Cel Damage HD, to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment systems and the PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system this spring. As a Cross-Buy title, Cel Damage HD will offer single-purchase, multi-platform support, and once purchased can be downloaded for all systems. Cel Damage HD will be shown in private meetings at this year’s Game Developers Conference in San Francisco next month, but prospective drivers can get more information about the game now by visiting the official site and by liking the game on Facebook.

A renewal of the timeless classic Cel Damage, the “HD” version is a fast-paced vehicle combat game where the world’s toughest cartoon drivers get behind the wheel of outlandish cars and battle each other in order to gain fame on the most popular cartoon demolition derby show on TV. With six characters to choose from, combatants smash, shoot and slice enemies into oblivion using an array of destructive armaments for personal glory. With vibrant cel-shaded art, Cel Damage HD transports players into a real-life cartoon environment, and allows them to explore 13 arena-style levels with 10 playable cars and more than 30 weapon power-ups.

“As longtime developers we’ve always enjoyed games that meld the realm of video games with other, similar forms of entertainment,” said Daniel Posner, co-founder of Finish Line Games. “With Cel Damage HD, we’re bringing back one of our favorite mash-ups of classic vehicle combat games and cartoon animation to give players the distinct experience of playing as if they are in a cartoon. We are excited to see how modern day fans react to this merging of mediums and we’re thrilled to be giving players Cross-Buy support to allow them to play on their preferred system.”

Product Description

Cel Damage HD, a re-release of the classic, fast-paced vehicle combat game Cel Damage, is a mix of demolition derby’s intense carnage and race car finesse all bundled into a zany cartoon universe. The game has players take control of the world’s wackiest cartoon drivers as they battle each other with outlandish, weaponized cars in order to gain fame on the most popular cartoon demolition derby show on TV. With 10 characters to choose from, combatants will smash, shoot and slice enemies into oblivion using more than 30 over-the-top weapons.

Featuring the only four-person split-screen multiplayer on the PlayStation 4, Cel Damage HD allows players to compete in one of three challenging game modes, where they must out-maneuver, out-gun and outlast their opponents to either earn smack points or prevent others from achieving their objectives. With vibrant cel-shaded cartoon art, drivers will explore 12 interactive worlds filled with surprises around every corner.

Key Features

Multiplayer Done The Right Way – It may take two to tango, but it takes a four-person split-screen to play multiplayer the way it’s meant to be played, which Cel Damage HD brings in a big way as the only game on PlayStation 4 offering such an experience. Only with four-player split-screen can drivers undergo the true chaos of fast-paced cartoon combat, while simultaneously giving their friends a verbal smackdown!

The Toughest Toons Around – Cel Damage HD features six raucous characters to choose from at the start, including the mischievous anime demon Violet, the demented devil Sinder, the ex-construction worker B.T. Bruno, the gangster duck Fowl Mouth, the black-hearted Dominque Trix, and the nerdy Flemming. With increasing victories, drivers will unlock additional characters, including a slew of devious bosses.

A Bevy of Wild Game Modes – To prove their star worthiness, motorists must master three different game modes; Smack Attack, where players attack other racers to gain a certain number of points first; Gate Relay, in which players race to checkpoints; and Flag Rally, which has combatants speed past each other to collect flags.

An Intense Cartoon Universe – Cel Damage HD features a frantic cartoon universe with a state-of-the-art cartoon physics engine, providing players with highly dangerous and interactive environments. While drivers initiate attacks on enemies and maneuver to avoid damage to their vehicles, they can interact freely with set gag pieces and perform jaw-dropping stunts.

Serious Action With an Explosive Sense of Humor – Cel Damage HD delivers a mix of humor with action, allowing players to not only use outrageous moves on other drivers, but also the ability to trash talk opponents to tears. Cel Damage HD harkens back to an arcade era able to embrace whacky fun, insane weaponry, and ludicrous characters players love to hate or grow to love.

Lively Cartoon Art – Vibrant cel-shaded cartoon art is bold and appealing, transporting players into a live-action cartoon filled with rousing environments that feature eerie ghost towns, creepy castles and technologically advanced space stations.

Shin Megami Tensei English Port For iOS Announced – Logo, Trailer, Official Website, & Press Release

Direct Link

Official Website

For the first time in history, the ground-breaking role-playing game Shin Megami Tensei will be localized for North American release. The original struggle between Law and Chaos is being localized by the ATLUS team behind Persona 4, Catherine, and Shin Megami Tensei IV, and coming exclusively to the App Store™ in 2014. This is the seminal Shin Megami Tensei title that started it all for ATLUS, the inspiration behind Persona, Devil Summoner, Devil Survivor, etc. I hope you’re good at dealing with demons…

Step away from clear notions of good and evil, right and wrong. There are demons in the world, but whether they are ally or enemy depends on player actions. In Tokyo 199X, a mysterious murder leads to the emergence of demons and an escalating global conflict thanks to the rise of a charismatic rebel leader in possession of a demon army, and external forces that wish to crush such threats with extreme measures. As the protagonist, players have an unusual ability (via computer program) to communicate with and recruit demons to fight for them. As they collect demons, the program will allow you to store, summon, and fuse them to create the right team to negotiate the ever-changing balance of powers, and fight for the kind of world you ultimately wish to live in.

The iOS version of Shin Megami Tensei features

Everything little thing matters: Character choices play a major role in SMT. Not only do they affect the outcome of the game’s ending, but also critical gameplay elements along the way – from the facilities players can access to the equipment they can use even limiting the demons that are recritable.

Fuse at your own risk: With two alignment scales to deal with, Law vs. Chaos and Light vs. Dark, micromanaging teams of demon soldiers becomes an addicting challenge.

A bit longer than a bathroom break: Shin Megami Tensei is the full-fledged version of the role-playing game, meaning it’s 40-60 hours’ worth of dungeon crawling in your pocket, everywhere you go.

The first of its kind: Unless you were prescient enough to import the title from Japan and proficient enough in the language to understand the nuances of the intricate story, this is the first time the story of Shin Megami Tensei is being told in North America.

Shin Megami Tensei will be available on March 18, 2014 on the App Store for $7.99.
