CIV: Beyond Earth and the best gaming videos from PAX East
It's PAX East this week and that means some great announcements and revelations all captured in glorious video for your mid week enjoyment. First up is perhaps one of the most well made trailer's I've seen in recent memory, from Firaxis on their upcoming CIV: Beyond Earth. Right after that is the revelation of the ingame dogfighting of the ridiculously well sported and endowed game that is Star Citizen. Capping it off is an hour long discussion with some of pc gaming's best and brightest in a panel right at PAX East, making you feel like you're right there in the thick of it.
