Ju-On's sh*tty European box art

If you have a Wii and love Japanese horror, then you're no doubt interested in checking out Ju-On: The Grudge. However, the box art makes it look like the worst game to have ever existed. The American cover art is alright, save for its "Haunted House Simulator" tag line, but the European box? Oh my God, the European box ...

Just look at it! That's a Japanese horror game, being represented by a ludicrous white woman peeking out from behind a sofa as if this were the cover to a Goosebumps novel. Seriously, what is this nonsense? Where's the big scary Japanese female's eye and long black hair that every Japanese horror needs these days? Why does this look like the DVD case to a Nickelodeon show?

I hope it really is psychologically messed up and thoroughly scary. Anybody buying this for their kids thinking it'll be like Are You Afraid of the Dark? would be in for a total treat.

Sick of having to touch your touchscreen? Well, those days are over, son! The folk at Fling have used science to their advantage and released a physical analog stick that attaches to the screen via a suction cup. Yes, that's...more
