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.

 

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. Farbod Barsum is based in Beverly Hills and is highly patronized by celebrities, socialites, and royalty. They’re the pioneers in combining the use of two or more different exotics on one bag which evolved further with the extensive use of signature color blocking of exotics. They’ve also incorporated Swarovski Crystals and Feathers on Exotics. Aside from handbags and clutches and small accessories, they also sell travel bags and executive bags like briefcase and men’s cross body bags.
