The Internet Reckons DOOM's PS4 Box Art Is Bad

And, for once, the Internet is right

In concept, DOOM couldn't possibly appeal less to this author's tastes. For starters, it's more heavy metal than the doodles on a teenage misfit's pencil case, but it's also one of those games where the shooting's only ever going to be the draw – we're not expecting anything in the way of story at all. Despite...

Dragon Quest Builders' Box Art Is a Bit of a Bust

Cheap and cheerful

Dragon Quest Builders is going to sell a frightening number of copies in Japan when it launches early next year on every viable PlayStation platform, but its box art is a bit rubbish. Gematsu spotted the artwork on a Japanese product page, which sports a mixture of awesome main character sketches and a ClipArt-esque villain. It...

The 10 Best Worst PSone Covers

The bad, the ugly, and the beautifully bad

Box art today is not usually all that interesting. You go to the shop to pick up your copy of Call of Battlefield: War with Guns and the cover art is usually a grizzled white guy walking away from the camera, surrounded with brown and more brown – well, unless you're Battlefield, which uses nothing but...

Rock on

We're running out of time, folks. In mere hours Push Square's offices will have been thrown into pure madness. This year's E3 is looking to be especially busy, with developers increasingly keen on releasing snippets of news earlier than they're supposed to. Thanks a lot, guys.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III's Box Art Has Pretty Bad Posture

Gun to go

Call of Duty: Black Ops III's pack shot will pay homage to its predecessors – despite the fact that its seemingly ditching the Cold War for, er, advanced warfare. The cover – which has leaked onto Reddit ahead of the release's big weekend reveal – shows a suited soldier equipped with all kinds of technical wizardry sitting slumped in...

This Is One PS4 Box That You Probably Won't Be Seeing on Western Store Shelves

More's the pity

One such box that slipped through our news net late last year is this one for Yakuza Ishin, which bucks the series’ Eastern trend by adopting a full colour image. Pretty neat, huh? Despite...
