Late Night Computing for November 21, 2012, and boy am I hungry already.

Anyone out there giving Planetside 2 a whirl? I played the original some in college as a dropship pilot, especially since combat was so sketchy with a slow Internet connection. Good times were had! I'm expecting more of the same to give me a break from those pesky relatives. Sometimes you just need to shoot something, you know?
