Late Night Computing: December 17, 2012

Hello, minions! Did you know Christmas is next week? Here's Late Night Computing for December 17, 2012.

Travelling is pretty much out of the picture for me, so I rely on gaming to see the sights of the world. The place I've always wanted to go the most? The tropics. Far Cry 3 stepped in to take me there over the weekend. The world is absolutely gorgeous, even on my lowly Xbox 360. Hush PC master race, the download would take forever on my shared ADSL connection. I've spent more time cruising around the island, reveling in breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, than I actually have progressing the story, which is a might tacky for my taste.

I never owned a Dreamcast so alas I cannot choose it, but I did own a Turbografx and that thing was amazing. At the time I was pretty obsessed with SHMUPs and the Turbografx did not disappoint! Bonk was cool too, I guess." [by The Grolar Bear]

  • "Forza Horizon. What difficulty are you guys using for the AI ? Just go tthe game and I set the opponent AI to HARD.
