Late Night Computing: November 28, 2012

By Tyler J. Smith, Nov 28, 2012 5:00pm PST

It's only November 28, 2012, and Late Night Computing is tired of Christmas music.

Stop it, games! I had little to no interest in Far Cry 3 until today. Some of the marketing is downright atrocious (looking at you, Monkey Business trailer). Then Ubisoft had to go and mess with my head with the new, has to be some sort of record, 10-minute launch trailer for the game. I tend to be a little skeptical of reviews, especially ones that have nothing but praise, but between the new trailer and the reviews floating around I finally gave in and pre-ordered. Now is your chance to change my opinion on the Far Cry series, Ubisoft. Don't blow it!

This might be a bit premature seeing as how we still have another month left in the year but I'm sure most of you guys already have a clear winner in mind. What's your pick/list??"
