Late Night Computing: February 1, 2013

All hands on deck. It’s Late Night Computing for February 1, 2013.

Welp, that’s all folks. The weekend is here, and I for one am glad. It’s time to settle in and play some video games. What’s on your list? I’ll be playing Starcraft II until Dead Space 3 gets here early next week. That, and FTL: Faster Than Light, of course. Captain to the bridge!

  • “When you have to name characters in games (not just coming up with an online handle for multiplayer), do you always come up with a new one, or do you have a list of favorites? Do you ever just use your name? I seem to rotate through a bunch, some of which I’ve used for years, dating back to Namingway in FF4US, some of which just pop into my head on the character screen.” [by Omaha]
