Someone's been playing too much Metal Gear

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 be...

Devil's Third coming to Japan this August

Box art! photo

What recent games have actually had good 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, silhouetted, gun-having f...

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...

Box art post! Scorpion graces the cover of Mortal Kombat X

Here we are again. Another cover art post, this one for Mortal Kombat X. Look at these words I've typed when you're only here to check out a picture. You just want to see Scorpion staring off like a total badass, and I'm here filling y...

 
 
Dragon Age photo

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

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...

 
 
Mega Man 2 box art photo

Why does Mega Man use a pistol on MM2's cover?

If you were asked to list the worst videogame cover art of all time, the gold-and-blue monstrosity that appeared on the original Mega Man's box would appear undoubtedly be mentioned. Nowhere near as bad but still pretty bad is Mega Man 2's...

Lightning Returns gets new E3 trailer, delayed to 2014

Dragon's Crown photo

Dragon's Crown box art is [insert extreme opinion here]

Atlus has unveiled the final Japanese box art for Dragon's Crown, the latest sidescrolling action title from Vanillaware, and it's pretty tame from the looks of things. You almost wouldn't guess that the game is currently embroiled in contr...

 
 
3DS mock-ups photo

Poke Ball and Game Boy-themed 3DS mock-ups are delish

A week doesn't go by without Nintendo announcing about a dozen new colors and designs for the 3DS in Japan. Meanwhile, Americans and Europeans get fed scraps once every blue moon. We may be getting the Animal Crossing XL, but the Luigi XL r...

Game covers recreated using clip art and Comic Sans font

Running on places like Tumblr and Twitter is a new meme: Videogame / movie / book covers recreated using only clip art and Comic Sans font. The results are... well... check out for yourself in the gallery below. I would totally love to see ...

Beyond: Two Souls box art is the Ellen Page-iest

Ellen Page. Polygons. Emotions. Mature. Beyond. On a related note, David Cage and Ms. Page will be screening Beyond: Two Souls at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday, April 27. Because it's a movie, I guess. BEYOND: Two Souls Box Art Reve...

Dark Souls II box art photo

Dark Souls II box art forgot to add color

Yeah, these posts are terrible. Everyone knows that. Even though readers only click to look at the images, I still have an obligation to put words in this space. These are those words. So, the Dark Souls II box art is completely monoch...
