While You Were Sleeping

You are awake. But before you were sleeping, and game stuff occurred during that period of time. Disastrous, right? No. You are saved, by the contents of this very post! This is While You Were Sleeping, your chance to catch up on what went down overnight and beyond!

After stoking the fire myself, and initially getting a bit frustrated with the reaction to the Mass Effect ending, I sort of now wish people would just totally stop talking about it. But the drama continues, with one fan trying to take the case federal, and a BioWare producer promising that the team will "keep listening" and that new content will bring closure. I have to say, I don't like the sound of that.

This is an interesting question: could Kickstarter projects damage studio relationships with publishers? Not sure I agree with this, but it's certainly worth reading.

Our weekend Editor Logan Booker has put this top notch feature together focusing on a developer's journey from the big time to indie. And you wish you were this good at Draw Something. Well, my wife does at least, because she will not stop playing this game.

    The basking shark (Cetorhinus maximus) is the second largest living fish, after the whale shark. It is a cosmopolitan migratory species, found in all the world's temperate oceans. It is a slow moving and generally harmless filter feeder and has anatomical adaptations to filter feeding, such as a greatly enlarged mouth and highly developed gill rakers. The shape of its snout is conical and the gill slits extend around the top and bottom of its head. The gill rakers are dark and bristle-like and are used to catch plankton as water filters through the mouth and over the gills. The basking shark is usually grayish-brown in colour and often seems to have a mottled appearance. The caudal (tail) fin has a strong lateral keel and a crescent shape. The teeth of the basking shark are very small and numerous and often number one hundred per row. The teeth themselves have a single conical cusp, are curved backwards and are the same on both the upper and lower jaws.

    Basking sharks are a migrating species and are believed to overwinter in deep waters. They may occur in either small schools or alone. Small schools in the Bay of Fundy have been seen swimming nose to tail in circles in what may be a form of mating behavior. Basking sharks are not aggressive and generally harmless to people.

    It has long been a commercially important fish, as a source of food, shark fin, animal feed, and shark liver oil. Overexploitation has reduced its populations to the point that some have apparently disappeared and others need protection.

      Yes, yes. That's all well and good, but why is it called the Basking Shark?

        Because it basks in what a kool animal it is!

          Are you sure it's not a typo and it's actually the Basting Shark? Omnomnomnom mmmmm, shark.

            Or the Baskin Shark which has an internal cooling system that keeps it's stomach cooled to sub zero temperatures and sicks up (or poops out on rare occasions) 31 flavours of ice cream.

      My favourite shark is definitely the Great White Shark. A truly magnificent ocean predator. I hope to go down to South Australia to do a cage dive with them soon.

    I did put this up in two other places - but it seems it may gone unoticed, so i will put it up here too
