A Gamer's Week: April 24

Portal 2 is the biggest launch of the week, with the entire Potato based alternate reality mode making the community excited long before the actual launch of the game, and we at Softpedia managed to take a Quick Look at the game before delivering a full review for the latest offering from Valve.

We also put up a Quick Look for MotorStorm Apocalypse, a full review for Anomaly Warzone Earth and we have Gamer Diaries that talk about it and about Portal 2.

There are also two Weekend Reading pieces for you to read, one about Portal 2 and user reactions to the launch and another about the line between a role playing game and Shift 2 Unleashed, alongside an EndWeekGame article.

And, as always, we have a section of the new from the last seven days.
