FIRE EVERYTHING. Late Night Computing for October 11, 2012 plots to destroy Vulcan.

Selecting a trailer to include each night can be daunting task, especially on days like today. Some days I anxiously await new trailers to land just so we don't leave that space empty. Other days, I just grimace at the screen since there really is just too much to see. With that in mind, you can always check out new trailers on our video page every day to see them as they go live.

News bits:

  • Remember, tonight is the vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan at 9:00 PM ET/6:00 PM PT. Still want that free Halo 4 Warrior Armor for your Xbox 360 avatar, but missed the first debate? Make sure you tune in tonight as well as the next two debates! [via Shacknews]
