After many years of inventing the writing and defending civilization from the barbarians, Sid Meier finally allowed us to get out of our planet. Beyond Earth is a fresh start for humanity, so lets check if changes did good for the series.
New production of Firaxis studio enchants with an atmosphere, which many adventure games can be envy for. Maybe this can seem insignificant in strategy type of game, but don't be deceived by appearances. Thanks to it specific mood and excellent audiovisual side this edition stand out from its precursors and long session are even more enjoyable. And losing a few hour more with this game is very easy. New Civilization draws exactly the same as the fifth part of the series, but veterans should not be afraid that this is some replay. Few more systems – with curious aliens at first place – are enough to prove old habits are time-barred.

Portal 2 is the sequel to the highly acclaimed Portal, originally released in the The Orange Box for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360 on October 9, 2007, and for the PlayStation 3 on December 11, 2007. The Windows version of the game is also available for download through Steam and was released as a standalone on April 9, 2008. Now 3 years later Valve has given us Portal 2 which is more mind-numbing, longer, more story driven, and better looking then the first one. Also, Portal 2 now supports full Co-op which is tons of fun. Before I go on, if you have Portal 2 and haven't done the Co-op yet go now and do it. Team work is forced but in a very rewarding way. Not to mention there are already DLC skins that you can get for those cute robots. That's neither here nor there though, on to the review.
While some may think that the "Source" engine is out of date and showing...
