Late Night Computing: December 6, 2012

By Tyler J. Smith, Dec 06, 2012 5:30pm PST

Another day, another Late Night Computing. End December 6, 2012 the proper way.

Strike another title from my pile of shame as I completed Assassin's Creed Brotherhood earlier today. Great game overall, though it did have its flaws. I won't whine about them. OK, just one since you asked. The ending. There, read into that what you will. My copy of Far Cry 3 is lost in the world of holiday delivery, and somehow I need to decide if I want to wait for it to get here (hopefully by early next week) or move onto Assassin's Creed Revelations. I know, I know. What a quandary. One packing such dire consequences.

Chatty posts of the moment.

Make sure you log-in and check your filters if you can't see the following:

  • "Can we talk about how good Planetside 2 is? I started playing Infiltrator last night and the Bolt Driver is like the old Rail Gun in Quake 2. When you hit dead on with that thing it's one shot kills." [by RyDogg1]

  • "GAMING HEADSET THREAD. I've actually never owned a PC gaming headset before, always used a standing mic. After hearing TS for PS2 the other night, I can tell a standing mic is just not going to cut it anymore. Can you guys point out a few halfway decent ones to me that won't cost rape-dollars? Bonus points for wireless ones that can also connect to an Xbox (if those exist...)" [by Clasifyd]
