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!

Alright. Good news – Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim won’t use that old broken engine. Sadly, however, it still has the name ‘Skyrim’. Which is unfortunate.

And PS3 owners – Christmas may just come early for you. A Mass Effect 2 demo is on the way – considering it was one of our games of the year, I’m actually considering playing through it again.

In other news – Miyamoto isn’t allowed to cycle to work anymore, Minecraft has t-shirts, this Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood post has spoilers, and we’re not sure how we feel about the fact that Warner Bros. are drip feeding Mortal Kombat fatalities

  • You’d have to explain a little better why you think the Oblivion engine was broken – obviously you can do better? Or give an example of a open world video game today with better visuals?

    So easy to repeat the idle criticisms of no-skill parasites on forums..
