It's been a long time since Sid Meier first put keyboard to code, but these days he thinks he wouldn't even play his seminal work, Civilisation, if it hadn't been created nearly 30 years ago.

Netflix have brought him on to make a new TV series based on his Kane Chronicles books. Let's see if he goes the distance or if he gets pushed out like the Avatar writers did. This week DJ tried Ubisoft's new Cyberpunk Battle Royale, and Professor fell over himself to try the new Fall Guys level variations and obliterated space fleets in Star Realms.
