Friday, December 21, 2012 is OVER, and so is this week. So here's Late Night Computing. Now, where's the egg nog.

Here we are, Friday. The last day of a never-ending week. I bet you thought it would never come. Wrong! Anyways, this is the last Late Night Computing for a few days. We'll return on Wednesday, or Thursday, next week depending on the amount of news. You know how it is. The Internet always tends to have a hangover during holidays. It's probably all that rum ham.

News bits:

Chatty posts of the moment:

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

  • "What is your favorite FPS? This is a difficult question for me. I ask because I saw sgtsanity saying Far Cry 2 was his (it is definitely not mine, although I like it) and it got me thinking, what would I choose? For a long time I played FPS games almost exclusively, but I rarely play them anymore. It's one of my least favorite genres at this point." [by Sexpansion Pack]

Nightly file:

  • Far Cry 3 patch 1.04. Ubisoft releases a brand new update that fixes numerous multiplayer bugs, single player missions, and more. Download the patch here.
