    Little Deviants doesn't look that bad. It accurately brings across the message that "this is a goofy place where nothing makes sense and you will laugh for no apparent reason, hyuk-hyuk." Plus, you later get a bigbig smile on your face when you notice Bigbig's logo on the bottom in bigbig letters.

    Um, this is slightly off topic but the PES slide mentioned M.I.A and it got my rage sensors going. I got Farcry 3 for Christmas and when I played it for the first time I noticed that one of the songs playing in the intro was Paper Planes by MIA. Now something stuck me as odd about this until I remembered this article from 2 years ago - So not only does her most famous song contain heavy gunshot sound effects but now she's pimping it out to a first person SHOOTER? My God, what a hypocrite.

    I miss when Mikel Raparaz used to do these.

    I had absolutely no problem buying hyperdimension 1 or 2... lol Same with when I go to buy pokemon or kirby or whatever the hell I want to buy. This is coming from someone that is generally shy as hell too lol It's a game.. who cares what the cover looks like.

    I stopped reading your comments for each box very early because they weren't worth the monotony of scrolling down and up and down and up...

    Best article of the year, thanks for that.

    The inversion one is rotated 180° I believe...the sky is on the bottom..Im not saying the boxart is good actually IS sorta inverted...right? Im sorry im sorry Im going back to my cave.

    Most of these weren't that bad. I think the author was being too overly analytical. Like on the American Nightmare boxart, who payed attention to those tiny details? Also, the Resistance: Burning Skies boxart was actually pretty awesome. I doubt many people payed attention to the fact that the gun was upright.

    Am I the only one that thinks the protagonist on the Binary Domain boxart looks just like Christian Slater?

    Does anyone else think Sledgehammer looks like a campy masterpiece?

    Haha, the 'misguided mess' Arkham city box reminds me of the Gamesradar homepage

    Actually you are meant to shoot a stag in the heart rather than the head because it will be a quicker and cleaner kill, plus the skull is very tough and unless you have a very high powered rifle it may not kill instantly.

    The "Midget ghost Pirate" line and the Brazzers logos had me in tears (seriously wasn't expecting a journalism site to pull the Brazzers gag)!

    I actually liked the American Nightmare box art. The rest of these are proper rubbish, though.
  • brickman409 - February 18, 2013 5:28 p.m.

    yeah I liked that one too
  • HountyBunter - December 26, 2012 1:57 p.m.

    I literally laughed out loud when I saw the Brazzers MiCoach.

    Thankfully here in the UK we got Arkham City GOTY without all the ridiculous quotes all over the front. It's essentially the same apart from that, and the 'Bonus Content' section has a picture of Harley Quinn. It looks pretty good actually.

    Always one of my face articles of the year <3
