If you weren't careful, you could step over some of the cutest cosplayers attending this year's New York Comic-Con. Take this little Spider-toddler in the shot above. She's only 19 months old but kept her mask on like a real superhero. Off to a great start, I say. Take a gander at the other outfits that turned heads, inclusing one youngster's homemade Hawkman, a fashion-forward GLaDOS and an impressive alt-Earth Green Lantern. As always, if you spotted any great cosplay from NYCC 2012, go ahead and share the images in the comments.

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.
