Late Night Computing: December 7, 2012

December 7, 2012 gets some Late Night Computing action to help remind you its the weekend.

I'll be spending the weekend adventuring through Assassin's Creed Revelations since Far Cry 3 was re-routed to a jungle island on its way to my house. It almost seems like the game doesn't want me to play it. That's what I get for not buying a digital copy or just hauling my enormous rear end to a retail location. Oh well!

  • "FTL Late-To-The-Party-Type-People. I unlocked the Rock Cruiser last night and now I need to figure out how best to use it. I have a pretty bad-assed Rock-man boarding party, but I also have this fire laser too. How do you employ fire lasers effectively? I feel like if I've got enough control of their shields to let the fire laser blast through, it's already game over for the other side. So. Fire lasers? Yes or no? What makes a good combo there?
