Box art posts are the worst
Apr 28
Halo isn't a rom-com, but you wouldn't know that just by looking at the cover art for Halo 5: Guardians. Two larger than life Spartans peering into each other's visors, into each other's eyes, into each other's souls. A ... read

Donatello has a gap in his teeth now I guess
Sep 04

Which of these alternate The Evil Within covers do you like best?


Tough call

Dragon Age

You know, Dragon Age: Inquisition's box art is pretty cool


I'm happy they didn't go with red again
Apr 21
It's rare that videogame cover art can energize me enough to want to write about it (unless we're talking the oft-excellent fan-made stuff), but there are exceptions. Not to oversell you on Dragon Age: Inquisition's cover, or anything. It's good! Better than expected coming off of Dragon Age II, certainly. Let's hope that rings true for all aspects of the game. read
