Late Night Computing: October 15, 2012

By Tyler J. Smith, Oct 15, 2012 5:00pm PDT

King Rat has Late Night Computing on his list for October 15, 2012.

Like many other Shackers in our comments, Dishonored sucked me into its maw and refused to release me from its vice-like grip this weekend. Nearly twenty hours later, and I've finished my first run through on low chaos. Bravo, Arkane. It's one of the rare games I wish I could experience again for the very first time. My one complaint? Why isn't there a mission where you have to take out a target on a whaling ship? I wanted to take to the sea and try my hand at evading a naval crew rather terribly!

On that note, I leave you with a music video. King Rat by Modest Mouse.

Chatty posts of the moment.

  • "DEFCON YUM! IS OPEN. Today's item is Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies. These are the ones I got from the Kickstarter and they are delicious." [by EricZBA]

  • "Man, Dishonored was really solid. Good ending credits music, too. Steam says it was a 25.5 hour run, which sounds about right. I have to say a few months ago I would never have guessed it'd be my game of the year, but I'm a sucker for Thief and I think it just might be. Now I'll have to do a high chaos run and see what changes." [by Conan]

Nightly file.

  • Taijou open beta demo 1.0. "Taijou is a fast paced platformer / bullet hell inspired by a mashup of Touhou and Cave Story." Download the open beta demo for Windows here..
