While You Were Sleeping

Happy morning everyone, everyone feeling fresh? It’s bloody freezing out there. Everyone was complaining that we post too many cats on While You Were Sleeping, so here — have a sleeping dog. Also — video games stuff!

This is a pretty depressing statistic — Star War: The Old Republic has lost 400,000 subscribers. That’s a pretty massive number. I haven’t had the chance to play the game, I’m not a massive MMO fan, so I can’t really speculate as to the reasons for this drop. Anyone have an idea why this has happened? It seemed like a good product…

Also of interest — this piece about the trouble with Call of Duty’s war of the future. It’s not what you might expect, but it absolutely demands to be read.

Oh, new Assassin’s Creed 3 stuff. Very excited about this game. This is what happens when Minecraft griefers invade real life and Kotaku’s Kirk Hamilton asks a question: is Joss Whedon the King of the Geeks. [Spoiler: yes].
