Intrepid Editor Tom McNamara and PC Gamer Managing Editor Cory Banks descended upon Civilization: Beyond Earth recently, getting our grubby hands on it ahead of its October 24th release, and our coverage was but words and pictures. We now have a full-blown video that slices together six minutes of direct-feed video, during which you will hear Tom and Corey go over their experience in a charmingly off-the-cuff manner that you are sure to enjoy and recommend frequently to your friends and neighbors.
