Ask Gauss

Sunday! Yes, it is that time of the week again. What a week in gaming this past week and it continues this week. Sunday though in Gauss land means it is time for Ask Gauss. The post of the week where I answer questions sent to me throughout the week. If you are interested in sending in questions it is pretty simple, there is a link on the top right of the page or you can just email them directly to So with that out of the way let's get right into the questions.

You surprised with when the Diablo III release date is?

Actually I was thinking it was going to be late May or early June. So pretty close to what I was thinking, but glad it was on the earlier side of my thoughts. This is actually a game I have been waiting to play for an extremely long time. Also as a mathematician I am excited what analysis I can actually do on how a real time online economy is working, that being the Real Money Auction house. Now I don't think people will be making millions of dollars, but they will be making something with their free time playing a game, something which I think is quite interesting. Regardless May 15th cannot come soon enough.

Mist of Pandaria NDA is lifted on Monday, excited with the information and such?

Well to be honest from the previous lifts of NDAs with WoW expansions there wasn't much information that hasn't been given out already. The thing which is exciting to see is the screens and actually everything you have been told and talking about in practice. Also you get first hand critiques of everything which is available. So that is what I am excited to see and hear. If you think there are going to be new features that we haven't heard about you are going to be extremely disappointed. Be prepared though because once all the information becomes available there is going to be a huge explosion everywhere.

What is a game not many people know about, but you would suggest playing?

Worms Ultimate Mayhem. Great game to play by yourself or especially with others.

And we are done, questions answered for the week. If I didn't answer your question on here it doesn't mean that I won't just wait a little bit, and I will without a doubt get to it. Enjoy what is left of your weekend!
