With Le Tour de France taking place in the real world, the big review on the Games section of Softpedia this week is that for Pro Cycling Manager 2012, the simulation and management game which has been created by Cyanide and published by Focus Home Interactive.

We also have a review for Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage.

When it comes to Game Diaries, we still have two running in parallel, one for PCM 2012, which details my own exploits in the virtual competition and compares them to the real world, and one for Sins of a Solar Empire - Rebellion, the strategy game Ironclad Games.

On the Quick Look front we have an article about the Gods & Kings expansion for the turn-based strategy Civilization V from Firaxis and one for The Secret World, a new mystery-oriented MMO from developer Funcom.
