Will there ever be a new Age of Empires game? Why not ask the head of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation?
- Xbox is opening up the Xbox One to cross-platform gaming.
- Bill Gates did a Reddit AMA, and a fan asked him if there will be another Age of Empires.
- More than 500 games are submitted to the App store every day.
- In The Division, player characters have collision detection with each other, allowing new levels of griefing.
- Ubisoft has announced some truly ridiculous preorder bonuses for Assassins' Creed movie tickets.
Swedish city planners used Cities: Skylines to help them plan a new public transportation system. Sounds crazy at first, but when I played the game, it did do a surprisingly accurate job of simulating people whingeing about having to walk more than a block to take a train, so not bad.
- Happy pi day! Quick reminder that pi is an irrational number with an infinite number of digits, and so it is physically impossible to recite all of them. Also this was streamed live.
- Paul's arm was briefly visible at the edge of shot at the beginning of the episode.
