While You Were Sleeping

While You Were Sleeping was a well received romantic comedy starring the luminous Sandra Bullock and the irrepressible Bill Pullman.

It's also the name of a new section here at Kotaku, where we round up all the best news coming in overnight, to save you trawling down the page for an excuse to not start work. Don't say we're not good to you!

Making all the big news at the moment is the Windows Phone 7. The Australian Microsoft event is kicking off as we speak, but you guys can have an early gander at some games for the device here.

Elsewhere, we take a closer look at Batman: Arkham City, watch in awe and confusion as Nintendo use a (weirdly hot?) cross dressing comedian to sell the upcoming Kirby's Epic Yarn, and dig up some fresh news regarding the fancy lookin' Sonic 4.

This, however, is our personal favourite. After its delay into 2011, LittleBigPlanet 2 somehow managed to shift off our radar, but this level, developed by one of the top notch creators partaking in the LBP 2 Beta, is actually an extremely convincing attempt at remaking one of our games of 2009, Flower.

It's a testament to both the creator and the flexibility of the new tools themselves, and it's incredible to watch. Please note for the record - there's nary a Sackboy in sight!


    damnit, this ruins my work nights totally! i work the graveyard shift and the steady trickle keeps me going :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

      You'll still get the steady trickle! This is just a round up, so peeps can go quickly to stuff that's awesome.

    Or more correctly, 'While You Were Sleeping (Or Having Just One More Turn Of Civ V)'

    Ah, great idea! I always have trouble reading all the overnight news on my morning commute.

    Big fan, shall be my first stop in the mornings.

    'Sleep' and 'gamers' don't usually go in the same sentence.

    Great idea, perfect for when i come into work and am trying to find the inspiration to do anything :P

    I'm sorry, but that picture is just ridiculously adorable.

    Appreciate the idea, thanks.
