PREVIEWSSid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Preview
Sid Meier's Civilization is boldly going where... it has gone once before in Alpha Centauri. But that was more than 15 years ago. We should know more about the future now, right?
Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4.
I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

April is usually the month that everyone forgets because March has already destroyed all of our playtime for, well, April. There's not much releasing for the entire month, but at least the first week is full of excitement.
That includes MLB 14: The Show, of which Daniel will have a review later this week, and The Elder Scrolls Online, of which I have been playing since Sunday at 4am (along with everyone else who owns the Imperial Edition) and will have a review on its official release date of 4/4/14. And of course, Goat Simulator, baa-humbug! (I'll also be livestreaming The Elder Scrolls Online once I get all the technical kinks out!)
The only other major games releasing this month are Lego the Hobbit, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and perhaps Child of Light and Trials Fusion out of the series of indie games coming out in the absence of triple-A releases.
That said, this is a good month to chill and recuperate before E3 in June, though I'll be heading to Las Vegas for Namco Bandai's annual Global Gamers Day in a week and Anthony, Alex, and Gil will be manning the stations at PAX East around the same time.
