Late Night Computing: October 9, 2012

Take a minute away from your video gaming to check out Late Night Computing for October 9, 2012.

Can't chat long, too much to do. USPS just dropped off my Prometheus Blu-Ray, and I've got XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Dishonored both staring at me expectantly. MechWarrior Online, too, is demanding some tender loving care. Why is it only Tuesday? It should be Friday. Come on!

News bits:
