While You Were Sleeping

While you were sleeping -- eyes shut, drooling all over yourself, hugging your pillow like a puppy dog clinging onto its mother's general thigh area -- things happened on The Internets. Video Game Things. So here's a quick round-up of what you missed!

I'm quite excited for Assassin's Creed Revelations. In fact, now that Journey's been pushed to 2012, it may be my most anticipated game this Christmas. Kotaku US spent three hours with the game - and this hands on is what they have to show for it. Read and be merry.

One of my favourite parts of Uncharted 2 was the moment where you simply explored the village - taking a break from all the climbing and cover shooting to just breathe. This Uncharted 3 gameplay footage has an entirely different village experience - but you should still totally watch it!

This is our RAGE review, a rapper has named his new single after Modern Warfare, and Mario Kart takes to the streets again - this time in Tokyo!

    Hold the phone, that dog isn't sleeping

    ...

    or is he/she!?!?!?

      He, was snoring like a lumberjack until the exact moment the flash went off.

    Hi Mark,

    Given that the majority of the AU Kotakans seem to despise and ridicule almost every post your US counterparts put up (and rightly so), I was wondering if you could tell us a little bit about your relationship with them, if any. Do you liaise with these guys? Are you beholden to them in any way? Does every single story they post automatically appear on Kotaku AU, or does someone go through them to decide what's relevant?

    We are all aware that the US articles are lazy, ill-informed, poorly researched, generally rubbish, or just flat out incorrect. They are so lazy that they clearly can't even be bothered to press the spellcheck button.

    I know when the new weekend editor was announced there was mention of ensuring that the US articles had more polish, mate, you're going to need a shitload of Mr Sheen.

    I'm not saying all this to be a grammar nazi or a hater. I, like most of your Aussie readers, respect and enjoy the articles, editorial stance, and general attitude of this site. It's just a shame that it's being dragged down by a bunch of talentless hacks.

    Cheers.

      While I understand the pressure of the minute by minute news cycle the world is currently ascribed to and the pressures of getting something out before the competition, I am disappointed by the quality of the articles relative to the number of staff the US kotaku has.
      There are few interviews, almost no research and most in dep[th articles are regulars which there should be plenty of time to arrange.

        I forgot it was 'ask me stuff' day, I'll repost this in there.
