You're gonna lose that foot: Here's the Gears of War 4 box art

Cover art posts are usually boring, but this one's straight-up dangerous. The trench foot is an underrated concern in today's Apple Watch-wearing, Uber-riding society. But, stand in a puddle too long? Lop it off, doc. Those dogs ain't barki...   read

IS IT ART?
While I would sell out any one of you reading right now to have spent the last week or two playing XCOM 2, our review copy must have been lost in the mail. It's out, probably dope as hell, and my guy Nic is on it working on t...   read

This box art is a good reason to get Dark Souls III on day one

Box art posts are kind of terrible. Everything of substance is squarely in one image. You look at it and think "Hmm, that's pretty okay." I write words that are unnecessary, either in an attempt to describe the cover, or whining about my ob...   read

 
 
Metal Gear Solid
A generic cardboard box.  It may look pedestrian, but it's light, sturdy, and has a hundred and one uses. How can we get by without them? A good cardboard box is a soldier's best friend; having one handy can mean the difference between life and death. [Via @Wario64]   read

Box art!
So, the Uncharted 4 box art is a bit shit, isn't it? It's not particularly bad. It even has a nice swoopy subtitle font much better than the one used for Uncharted 2 and 3. But it also follows the trend of central, silhouette...   read

Halo 5: Guardians' box art has two Spartans lost in each other's eyes

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 war rages on th...   read

The Just Cause 3 box art looks exactly how you'd expect the Just Cause 3 box art to look

"Playing it safe" is rarely regarded as hang-gliding through explosions while helicopters try to gun you down. But that perfect storm of circumstances aptly describes Just Cause 3's box art. How else could you explain Square Enix and Avalan...   read

Here's your Onechanbara Z2: Chaos box art

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos' cover art has been revealed, and it's actually a lot less risqué than I thought it was going to be. I was hoping they'd just forgo clothes entirely -- you know, for sales. Just kidding. I actually like the artw...   read

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

Madden 15 cover wants you to stop in your tracks, or something

Seattle Seahawks star cornerback Richard Sherman won the vote to be on the box art of Madden 15. What exactly he's doing on the cover, well, that's anybody's guess. Does he want a high-five? (If so, gotta go higher, Richard.) Is he telling ...   read

The Japanese box art for Persona 4 Ultimax is real good

This is the official box art for the Japanese release of Persona 4 Ultimax. It's pretty great, even with the best characters (Mitsuru and Chie) getting teeny billing. That Yul Brynner chest pose though.   read

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