Dead Space 2 box art revealed

Pretty nice, actually (although, really, ESRB? 'Rating Pending?' Can't you just assume "M?")

Now I just need to play the first game...

Not necessarily...the game might be you having to fill up rooms with furniture.  You know...remove all the "Dead Space?"   :rimshot:

Nice lighting and all, but I think the cover would've been better suited to something a little more illustrative...giving more of a hint of what you're going to encounter, like showing Isaac being dragged down a dark hallway by the shadowy image of some new monster, or in the middle of a huge, empty space station bay with a bunch of eyes watching him from shadowy corners.  It looks like they're trying to out-Bioshock the Bioshock 2 cover art.

But then, maybe I'm just spoiled by the original God of War 3 cover art they showed in the back of the God of War Collection and what they ended up using.  How do you go from Kratos fighting a giant cyclops monster to a close-up of an eyeball, for Pete's sake?

You could say that it's a "We have to protect the children!" cover art issue, but I've seen DVD covers that are a lot worse.  Hell, old Sex in the City videotape boxes were more explicit (and I'm not joking about this).
One Man Band Riffs.  18 riffs, over 600 served, since 2009.
