Late Night Computing: October 30, 2012

By Tyler J. Smith, Oct 30, 2012 6:00pm PDT

Rain, rain, go away for Late Night Computing on October 30, 2012.

Hopefully the majority of you weathered the storm last night. Things were pretty windy here in Western Pennsylvania, and quite frankly I'm surprised I still have power since it tends to go down at the slightest hint of a raindrop. Best of luck during the clean-up. The pictures some of you posted in Chatty from New York City look like something out of The Day After Tomorrow.

  • "So yeah, I found a bug in Borderlands 2 for PC and it made me so sad. I looted an awesome pistol from the locked chest in Sanctuary. It was an amazing weapon, huge clip, accurate, fast reload, great damage. I was farming some Goliaths when I ended up with full inventory. When I was heading back to sell, I opened up a chest expecting money and ammo, so I immediately pressed and held "E" to loot. Well, the chest had a pistol in it and I autolooted it and switched it out with my awesome gun. The only problem is that I didn't have inventory space and my awesome gun disappeared. It was over-written by the gun I just picked up. " [by pigvomit]
