By Crispian Balmer VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Francis told Europe's leaders on Friday the continent faced a "vacuum of values" as they marked the EU's 60th birthday, condemning anti-immigrant populism and extremism that he said posed a mortal threat to the bloc. Prime ministers and presidents from 27 EU member states have descended on Italy to mark the 1957 founding Treaty of Rome, receiving a papal blessing on the eve of the anniversary. "When a body loses its sense of direction and is no longer able to look ahead, it experiences a regression and, in the long run, risks dying," Francis told the leaders gathered in an ornate, frescoed chamber in the heart of the Vatican.

So we’re about a month out from Christmas now and...wait, what? It’s only March? But we’ve already seen Nier, Mass Effect, Resident Evil, Stories Untold, Kona, with Thimbleweed Park and Yooka-Laylee right around the corner. Oh, and some Zelda game for our console cousins. Crazy.
Not as crazy as some of this news, though: Assassin’s Creed abandons the silver screen for the smaller screen, the Up house floats over war-torn France, and Fallout 4 VR is “the most incredible thing you’ve ever seen in your life.” Their words, not mine.
This is gaming news for March 20 to 24.
