Late Night Computing: November 20, 2012

Stompy, stompy, Late Night Computing is here for November 20, 2012.

The Walking Dead isn't out for me until tomorrow, so it looks like I'm hitting the battlefield of MechWarrior Online to test out the brand new Cataphract. I've been running the first hero mech in the Yen-Lo-Wang, a Centurion-class mech, and doing pretty well. The C-bill boost is probably the best part about that mech at the moment, helping me to quickly rebuild my reserve since the open beta reset. What type of mech are you running?

  • "This really has been the year of stealth games. It is a good time to be alive! Between Dishonored, Mark of the Ninja, Hitman: Absolution, and Batman: Arkham City (although that was technically 2011), we have a healthy mix of original and franchise stealth games. I used to think of the sub genre as lacking the attention of developers, but this year has turned that opinion around. I hope the trend continues. What are some other great stealth games or series?"
