What is the greatest video game cover ever created?

Me and my sister grew playing video games and the way we choose the video disc was where in the cover. Yes! actually, back in the 90’s Nintendo, Japanese gaming company, produces a lot of games to choose from with for your family computer and my sister and I are too thrilled to try them all but we cant as we just have limited budget to spend at times hence we both decided to just pick the game which has the best game cover as we are sure that the cover itself plays a big marketing strategy to sell the item or game they trying to offer.

So the question is..

How many times have you been interested in playing a game thanks to the cover art catching your eye?

With hundreds, if not thousands, of titles to choose from depending on which console you own, many publishers and developers will take their time creating a cover for their video game so that it grabs the attention and hopefully leads to a gamer choosing that title over the many others on a store shelf.

To find out which is the greatest video game cover ever created, managed print specialist United Carlton has set out this shortlist of five standout examples. Check out their picks then head onto their Twitter page to let them know which one you believe to be the best, or if you have any favourites that we haven’t covered.

Heavy Rain

(Cover art can be seen here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-Heavy-Rain-PS3/dp/B002BWONF8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1476714153&sr=8-2&keywords=heavy+rain)

The cover of Heavy Rain does an excellent job of making the art of origami look incredibly dramatic. What’s particularly great about this is that you will actually have to play the game to grasp the meaning behind the cover’s image.

With the origami figure slowly being destroyed by the pouring rain, the cover also fits perfectly with the game’s dark, moody and unusual tone and visual style.

Limbo

(Cover art can be seen here: http://www.game.co.uk/en/limbo-171641)

Twisted, terrifying, dark, minimalist and unsettling are all words that can be used to describe the 2010 Indie fan favourite game Limbo.

The game’s cover art is reflective of all of these words too, with the black-and-white image of a faceless child wandering into the light having a creepy tone to it but also one which makes you want to explore just what this puzzle game is about.

Borderlands

(Cover art can be seen here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/2K-Games-Borderlands-Xbox-360/dp/B0026IBHHY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1476714175&sr=8-2&keywords=borderlands)

How do you make your IP stand out when it’s going up against sure-fire hits like Halo 3: ODST and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2? When it comes to Gearbox Software and the original Borderlands game, the answer was simple: create a cover that catches the eye and is rather controversial.

Instead of featuring the game’s protagonist, the cover featured a bandit from the RPG shooter pretending to shoot himself in the head along with a glimpse into the game being the splatter. All dressed up in a cartoon style complete with heavy cell shading to reflect the game’s unique art direction.

Ico

(Cover art can be seen here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-ICO/dp/B00005UJSY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1476714211&sr=8-2&keywords=ico)

Boy meets girl is one of the most traditional stories that you can think of, though Ico did a fine job of wrapping this theme up in a soft-spoken and artistic game.

The cover of Ico works perfectly in that it demonstrates that this puzzle game is doing something that is different from the norm, while also being as minimalistic as the open space that games get to explore once the disc loads.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

(Cover art can be seen here: http://www.game.co.uk/en/uncharted-2-among-thieves-38971)

Sometimes a game cover creates itself from the action that you discover by actually playing the game. This is certainly the case for the cover of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

Anyone who has played this pulsating action game is sure to remember the heart-pounding mission of trying to escape a derailed train, so the cover is effective in providing a glimpse about the thrilling ride you have waiting for you.

I loved all the collaborative items that these well known brands and labels are worked together with. Actually, these items where pretty rare and sometimes these are the most expensive to have because it’s like you’re buying off the two brands in one item at the same time, especially those high-end brands which made them collaborative items an limited edition which these fashion enthusiasts and icons are dying to have for.

But for those dope guys who really likes street wear fashion like myself, of course we’re pretty much happy to have these street brands teamed up in one awesome brand that can make us dope as we wears their item, right? hence I am so pleased to tell you all that the Reebok is fondly work with the other brand called Hall of Fame USA for their both capsule collection this coming season. I must say, their pieces where quite usual and athletes are mostly into these. But try to think of it, these pieces were good in a casual wear too and you can even comfortably wears them anywhere and everywhere.

They also came up with some kicks too, And I think this kick, picture on top, are one of the design they did use back in 90’s but I am not sure though. and still the kicks really rocks it all, right? also, for the design wise, I think it has a similarities to the one kicks brand that is based in Korea which they used no laces in their kicks too.. But overall these collection is a must watch and wait as am sure that they gonna hit the market, soon as it gets released..

Finding the Best Clothes and Accessories For Less

Men want others to see him as being confident, strong, professional, and trustworthy and one way of doing that is by dressing nicely. You don’t need a lot of money to do that as long as you have good fashion sense and pay attention to details. A limited budget shouldn’t deter you from looking your best. However, there’re a couple of things that you should remember such as not buying clothes just because they’re on sale. A suit that’s cheap but doesn’t look good on you will be a total waste of money. Put your dollars to smart use by purchasing quality items that’re durable. You can also visit thrift stores which are a good source of inexpensive outfits. Many of these clothes were used only once and even have their original tags.

Another way of shopping wisely is by using online auction sites like eBay. The key to shopping on eBay is to find quality items that’re not being marketed properly and therefore aren’t receiving all the bids they could be. It needs a lot of patience to shop at eBay because you don’t instantly find the best clothes but if you look hard enough, you’ll surely stumble upon some good finds. There’re also places where you can haggle and get the item at a price far lower than it originally is. Always be polite and friendly though when haggling and stand your ground.

Shopping For Exotic Skin Bags

 photo FB1_zpsqkh1dvv7.jpg
Exotic skin bags spell timeless elegance that can go beyond the avant garde fashionista, to the sophisticated, mature man or woman. Nowadays, with the prices of these pieces becoming more affordable, more people are able to buy them. However, there’re some factors to consider when shopping for exotic skin handbags such as authentication and certificates. The brand you buy your bag from should have a CITES certificate which substantiates the skins were not illegally acquired. Then, inspect the pattern of the skin and check the quality and feel of the skin which should be soft and flexible.

When you already know that the bag is of high quality, you next have to figure out which bag is suitable for you. Determine your general skin temperature, whether it’s warm or cool. If you have cooler undertones, go with fuchsia and purple. For brown or yellow undertones, stick to natural colored exotic skin like beige, brown, and gold. You likewise have to take into consideration your body shape and size. If your build is medium to large, purchase a bag that’s proportionate. If you’re petite, don’t buy a large tote or big bag since this would make you look smaller. The same thing goes to those who’re tall and large. Don’t buy tiny bags and clutches.

If you want to buy exotic purses, handbags, and accessories, shop at Farbod Barsum. Founded in 2010, the company is committed to quality, luxury, and refinement. The edge of their bags is the attention to detail as well as their hand crafted classic styles incorporated with modern vision in composition.

The Perfect Cashmere Sweater For Every Man

Every man should have a cashmere sweater in his closet. Not only is it handy during the cold weather, it can also be worn during cold summer months. Unfortunately, not many people buy one because it’s widely perceived to be expensive. But there’re certain tips that’ll help you select cashmere that’s suitable for you. Always do the pull test when choosing cashmere to know if it’s of high quality. Hold each side of the sweater and pull them in opposite sides and if it goes back to its original shape, then you’re sure that it’s of good quality. You likewise have to check the ply count and remember that the more ply, the thicker and warmer it is. Another factor that should be considered is the fibre length or staple. Choose cashmere sweaters that has a longer fibre length since the longer it is, the better the quality is of the fabric.

Shopping For the Best Riding Gear

Taking safety precautions when riding a motorcycle is important. The right helmet, knee and elbow protectors, and leather suits should be worn. Another function of clothing for motorcyclists is to make sure that your body doesn’t get too cold or too hot. The most important aspect of a helmet is its fit. Shop at a trusted store that specializes in helmets and make sure that it fits and is comfortable to wear. The helmet should fit rather tightly when you try it for the first time and when you shake your head, the helmet shouldn’t move around.

The second thing that should be well protected are your hands that’s why wearing well-fitted gloves is a must. Buy gloves that allow you to feel the handlebars very well and protect against sliding. Leather gloves should be worn during warm weather while gloves with Goretex lining should be worn in cold weather to keep your hands dry. A glove with a separate inner glove made from Windstopper outbound link keeps your hands warmer (if you really want warm hands) compared to those with a stitched in bulky liner. Another important motorcycle clothing is a leather suit. Make sure that it fits perfectly, especially when you’re sitting.

Health Mistakes Men Make Which Could Affect Their Future!

It’s a well-known fact that us guys hate talking about our health. We leave going to the doctors and dentists for as long as possible. But it’s so important that you take control of your health while you are young. Otherwise, you will end up with health issues that could affect your life. Here are some health mistakes men make which could affect your future.

Not checking their body

It’s so important that men check their body regularly so they spot changes sooner rather than later. It only takes a few minutes in the shower to have a feel of your body to ensure no lumps have appeared. You can also check in the mirror to see if there are any changes to your body. It’s so important to check everywhere including your testicles. After all, there are over 2000 reported cases of testicular cancer every year. But with people going earlier to the doctors, there is a much higher percentage surviving the disease. Therefore, always check your body and go to the doctor if you are worried. That way, you are more likely to catch it earlier, and you can have a long and happy future.

Not getting tested regularly

It’s so important for guys to get tested regularly for STI’s to ensure they keep their sexual health in check. A lot of STI’s such as chlamydia don’t have any signs, so you might have it without realising. If it doesn’t get treated, you may have issues with infertility in the future. And as you can read about on NHS’s site, it can even spread to the testicles causing them to become swollen. Therefore, you should ensure you get checked out regularly before having any more sexual intercourse. If you do have it, you will need chlamydia treatment which comes in the form of Azithromycin tablets. As well as you needing the treatment, you will need to inform the girls who you have slept with since contracting the disease.

Not talking about depression

You will be surprised to know that depression affects one in four men in the UK. But mainly down to the social stigma, they aren’t willing to seek help for the disorder. But it’s so important to find some help so that you can live a happy life again. If you don’t do anything about it, the condition is likely to worsen and affect your relationships and work life. As we discussed previously, with the right treatment for depression, your life will be returned to you in new ways.

Not drinking moderately

We all love a good couple of pints on a night out. It’s an ideal way to chill out after a stressful week at work. But you need to ensure you are drinking moderately; it’s recommended that you should not drink any more than 14 units a week to stay healthy. But a lot of people are binge drinking on a regular basis. Over time, binge drinking can damage your liver and weaken your heart. Therefore, you need to cut down your alcohol intake so that you can keep healthy on the long-term.
