Engadget Podcast 385 - 2.21.14

Jon Turi, @jonturi

Gaming has been scoring big in the headlines lately and Ben Gilbert's been paying attention. The studio that brought you BioShock Infinite has been dissolved and Doom 4 becomes 'Doom' all over again -- which is fine with Terrence since that's how he remembers it anyway. It might be IPO time for the company behind Candy Crush Saga and the numbers behind that reasoning are pretty interesting. Google even announced its Project Tango phone and it's environment mapping capabilities could turn your home or work space into an augmented reality gaming zone. Oh, and Facebook just bought WhatsApp for about $19 billion, so there's that. There's a lot going on, so head on down to the streaming links below for your weekly dose of tech, courtesy of the Engadget Podcast.
