While You Were Sleeping

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 regular 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!

It was all about the VGAs last night – but no-one was really interested in the ceremony, or the awards themselves, it seems. The trailers were where most of the attention was placed, and there were some barnstormers. Weirdly, though, this one was probably my favourite.

In other, non-VGA news, Minecraft is about to kick things up a ‘Notch’ by moving into Beta – check out the details here.

And, finally, I’m really cut up about this. Years ago I remember hearing (and writing about) a Highlander game in production. Turns out it has been canned. There can be only none, apparently…

  • There was also the announcement of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (bleh), Uncharted 3’s November release date and the invasion of Earth by Reapers in Mass Effect 3 and the news that you Shepard won’t be the player character (lol jk).

  • I’m happy to hear about a new Elder Scrolls. Am still playing Morrowind and Oblivion to this day. Mass Effect 3 and Forza 4 roundout the ones I really want – no doubt another CoD will be announced soon also!

    • Different interpretations of the same result, I guess. What O’Connor saw as encouraging first steps could also be seen as a “rejection” of the R18+ rating. That article doesn’t appear to be written for an audience who already knows about the issue, so from the outset it’s correct in saying the rating was rejected.
