Late Night Computing: December 10, 2012

Monday, December 10, 2012. Is it the weekend yet? Ugh.
How was your weekend, Shackers? Boring? Good! Those are the best times to catch up your backlog, especially given all the new games due out in the first quarter of 2013. Assassin's Creed Revelations has been my game of choice. Though, something just feels off about this one. Maybe it's the change of locale? I've no idea. Or, I've just played these titles too close together to fully appreciate them.

Are you trying to knock out Dark Souls? Maybe another run through of Borderlands 2? Baldur's Gate: EE?" [by MercFox1]
- "MONDAY DISCUSSION That one feature you're hoping comes along in the "next-generation" of gaming/consoles. What is it?" [by eonix]
