While You Were Sleeping

While You Were Sleeping? I've got a teething six month old man, I've forgotten what sleeping feels like... here's the news that went down while you were sleeping. Me? I was cradling a sniffling, jetlagged baby, checking my mobile phone going... is that the time? Nnnoooooo!

Just before I went on holiday I posted a big feature about the making of Ocarina of Time, so it feels fitting that the first story I write about in my first While You Were Sleeping on my first day back is a story about... Ocarina of Time! Want to watch the game being completed in 22 minutes? Sure you do! Head here for the privilege. This is pretty spectacular.

Back in the day someone could create... I dunno, a really nice, well structured two storey house in Minecraft and that would be enough for a Kotaku post. Seriously. Nowadays? You have to be creating something pretty spectacular or innovative. But this Minecraft video isn't an insane creation, it's something else entirely...

The latest in Anita Sarkeesian's Tropes in Video Games series has been released. I haven't had the chance to watch it yet, but I'm sure it'll be essential viewing. Folks are paying a stupid amount on money for a weed emoticon on Steam and the crazy John Carmack is finally winding down his private space business.

In Short Watch The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time Beaten in Just 22 Minutes Indie Games Are Full Of Helpless Women, But Critic Finds Some To Praise John Carmack Is Winding Down His Private Space Business Minecraft's Ending Makes For A Lovely Song Folks Are Paying An Absurd Amount For A Weed Emoticon On Steam

    I slept well. On my laptop. And broke the screen.
    During my less plesant than usual morning ritual (somewhat changed due to desktop computer use and significantly more cursing) I think I was trolled by Kotaku's survey.

    19. Which of the following game consoles do you own? Tick all that apply. (radio buttons for answers)

    My morning coffee was fantastic however so there is that.

    Folks are paying inflated, stupid crazy amounts for virtual weed? Glad to see yet again online reflects real life...
