Late Night Computing: October 31, 2012

I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy us. Mr. Stay Puft! Or maybe just Late Night Computing for October 31, 2012.

With today being Halloween, I wanted to go out of my way to highlight this post by xembler showcasing his absolutely hilarious costume. Not too many costumes impress me, and I have to say this thing is sheer genius. Anyway, enjoy your evening debauchery!

Seriously though, what does everyone hope is in this game? Cortana goes rampant? Chief takes off the helmet? Halo 1 pistol? New enemies? Flood?" [by brickmatt]
