Loved the historical setting for Assassin’s Creed III but weren’t too keen on the game it was wrapped around? We think we’ve found a series of novels that may well make up for that.

Blink is many things to many people. An excellent episode of Doctor Who, a terrible Madeleine Stowe movie, etc. But for contemporary gamers it's a key mechanic in Arkane Studios' Dishonored. Justin Keverne risks Weeper infection by to bring us this report from the depths (and heights) of Dunwall.

My desire to explore new worlds in video games started long before "open world" games were a thing.

There are some games that were way before their (and my) time. The first Elder Scrolls, Sundog--a fabulous Sci-fi game, Flames of Freedom--which is truly an ancient game, hell... even the Ultima's felt like this.

The games that suck me in are sandbox games with very little rules to oversee them.

So, yes... I'm there with ya.

Turns out that various C64 musicians had a noticeable effect on my future taste in music.

When he’s not busy writing about level design, Justin Keverne likes to cruise the mean streets of Paradise City in his hellaflush Challenger, looking for ricers to drag down the 1320. Or whatever it is the kids do these days. J-Kev takes a break from his hectic street racing schedule to examine the Licence system in Burnout Paradise.

Here, have a nostalgic wallow as Wes Hampton recalls his experiences with a bunch of 8-bit & 16-bit Disney games.

YouTube videos shared to Facebook via desktop site aren't visible in Facebook timeline when viewed in the Facebook iOS app

Bug, oversight or deliberate omission? 

I tried explaining this on Twitter, but 140 character tweets aren't really the best method of conveying the issue, so I've posted a more detailed breakdown here.

1) Visit youtube.com in your DESKTOP browser and browse to any video of your choosing. 

2) Click the "Share" text link.

3) Under the "Share this video" heading click the "Share to Facebook" button.

4) A "Post to your wall" pop-up window appears. Click the share button.

5) Load up your Facebook timeline/profile page in your DESKTOP browser. You'll see the shared video from YouTube there.

6) Load up the official Facebook app on your iOS device and then visit your timeline. The YouTube video you shared is missing.

A workaround for this problem is to simply copy the URL of the video you wish to share and paste that directly into a Facebook status update. That way the YT video will appear in your timeline when viewed on an iOS device.

If you share the video via the YT iOS app, it will also correctly appear in your timeline on the Facebook iOS app. 

For some reason, YT videos shared via the desktop site don't appear in the timeline when viewed via the iOS app.

I'm going with bug/oversight on this one, seeing as FB don't go to any other lengths to hide YT videos from you elsewhere in the iOS app (ie, you can see them in the news feed, or you can find them via the activity log).
