Is BioShock Infinite the worst box of all time? photo
Is BioShock Infinite the worst box of all time?
by Allistair Pinsof

There are few boxes as anticipated as BioShock Infinite, the long awaited box to prequels BioShock Limited Edition and BioShock for the PlayStation 3.

Irrational Games, known as 2K Boston during BioShock's release, made waves in the industry with critics and boring, ordinary game-playing people alike, in 2007. BioShock was everything boxes didn't dare to do at the time: It was bold, beautiful, and it had a message. You looked at that box and it spoke to the soul. It said, "Open me, stick me in your game box, and have a randy dandy time." We gaming folk finally discovered what true art is and why it's worth talking about all the dang time on NeoGAF.

After getting several hours of eyes-on ophthalmic exploration of Irrational's much anticipated follow-up, I have to say that BioShock Infinite is not the box we deserve.

Capcom thinks Ace Attorney fan game box art is for real

"That's Our Capcom! Coming soon to ABC Family!" Capcom is notorious for its printing errors and spelling gaffes. If it's not using watermarked images for its slip covers, it's failing to run a simple spell check on in-game di...

*drumroll* The Persona 4 Golden North American box art

Here it is: the Persona 4 Golden box art. Nice, isn't it? I'm going to enjoy it now, because after I get my copy I'll never see that box front again. I cannot wait for this bad boy to get inside of my Vita. Yes, I've played t...

BOX VS. BOX, or box art from other countries looks weird!

Name me a person who doesn't find regional box art comparisons fascinating. You can't, can you? That's because such a person doesn't exist, and if one did exist, I wouldn't feel right in calling it "human." For the past few m...

Ubisoft just uploaded Assassin Creed III's box art to Facebook, confirming once and for all that the main setting shall be the American Revolution. 

You can note the British and American soldiers behind the hooded hero, who now looks more out of place than ever despite attempts to update the old assassin uniform.

Aliens: Colonial Marines box art has an alien on it!

I only post box art on Destructoid if it fulfills one of two objectives -- it's exceptionally amazing, or it features Xenomorphs. You can guess which category this falls under. Or does it fall under both?  In a...
