Late Night Computing: November 27, 2012

Late Night Computing blows up the world on November 27, 2012.

Welcome to Tuesday, Shackers. I'm still slowly working through Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, with a few detours into Mark of the Ninja and Hotline: Miami, both of which are stellar titles. Although the 100% sync memory feature adds a bit of longevity the second title didn't have, it's bugging me a bit and making my completion tick go into overdrive. It's optional, yes, but still bothers me. Guess I'll be sticking around Assassin's Creed Brotherhood longer than I anticipated.

  • "Lets talk Civilization 5. I started a match yesterday with a friend of mine who is showing me the ropes. We played fr a few hours and are currently in the renaissance era. I think I'm getting an idea of the real basics. While I don't yet have a feel for the overall strategy and diplomacy aspects of the game, I'm already enjoying the game. Already finding it vastly more interesting than Fallout 3.

    So can anyone show me in the direction of good strategy write ups and general tips for the game? Do Shackers still frequently play this game? The game seems pretty inoffensive so far, but I remember the rage from veteran Civ 4 players, what happened there?" [by Creepin_Jeezus]

  • "I'm loving PlanetSide 2 right now. So many awe inspiring moments that can't be had anywhere else across the medium. That makes it a good game in my books." [by Sgt_Boomstick]
