Anything else to note?

The Scientist Short Films will be unveiled to you on different release dates. There is a paw menu (similar to the Main Menu) - the large pad displays the name and release date of each short film in the order they will be released. The smaller pads display the individual videos - if the video button is grey this indicates that the film has not yet been released. When the video button is white this indicates that the film can be played.
