Geek Links of the Week

It’s been a well-known fact for a while now but just in case you didn’t know, women make up almost half of all gamers and adult women outnumber under-18 boys. [Wall Street Journal]

Phil Fish is leaving gaming and selling Polytron and Fez after being hacked by people who claimed to be 4chan and wanting to shut down “social justice warriors.” I’ll try to get an article up next week but in case I’m covering something else, I’ll leave you this link. [Develop]

Blizzard’s promised World of Warcraft tribute to Robin Williams has been spotted in the data for the Warlords of Draenor expansion. [Eurogamer]
