Here's the box art for Activision's holiday money-printer, Guitar Hero: World Tour (courtesy of Amazon). As you can see, it's part box art, part marketing exercise, as Activision set out to let people know this Guitar Hero game has more than just guitars in it, adding a, uh, subtle "COMPLETE BAND GAME" notice to the front of the expensive game + instruments bundle. That's the 360 bundle above, with the rest of them (Wii excluded) in the gallery below.

On Monday the BBC reported that Facebook had removed three Britain First adverts, and the page responsible for disseminating them. Britain First is a fascist political party that Facebook had already banned from its platform last year, saying at the time that its representatives “repeatedly posted content designed to incite animosity and hatred against minority groups”. A rather surprising aspect of this story, however, is the styling of the group that had been promoting Britain First: it's called "Political Gamers TV", and little about it adds up.
I once asked a group of Capcom developers, who at the time were working on Resident Evil 6, what they each considered the series' high point to be. I expected most to choose the PlayStation original or Resident Evil 4 but, instead, the most popular choice at that table on that evening was the Resident Evil remake for Gamecube. Not only did this project make Resident Evil look absolutely sensational, but with the benefit of hindsight director Shinji Mikami made many changes to the game's design, all of which were for the better. New players instantly understood why this game was such a beloved classic. Returning players simply delighted in a brilliantly executed 'director's cut' of a truly great video game.
