Here's a video and some screens that highlight the player housing system in the upcoming MMORPG Runes of Magic. I talked at length about the housing features in my impressions of the title from the Games Convention last week, but I forgot to touch on several key points, such as everyone getting their own French maid who facilitates entering and leaving their home, or the fact that you can invite friends into your home, which certainly explains the very comfy bed seen in the clip. No more cybering in the subway tunnel between Ironforge and Stormwind for
me people inclined to do such a thing!

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.
