Getting all worked up over a cover..wow,and i thought fanboys couldn't get anymore detached from reality.I play the game for it's content,not it's cover art.Sorry fella's but 25 years now,no one's going to pay a crazy amount of money for a video game cover.Games are meant to be played,not displayed.
Why is everyone making such a fuss over the cover? It's the game content that sold me on it! They could've had a xeroxed photo of Adam West and Burt ward from the 60's tv show and I still would've bought it. Besides I like the magazine style layout anyways!
Who cares about these negative attitutes towards the cover art of this game of the year edition! All in all it does look cluttered, but it also shows the true depth this game ultimately has. If you don't like the cover art, then mind your own. After all we own it for the game right??
Way for all of you guys (or rather, all 3 of you, and possibly even just 1 with multiple accounts considering all the talking to himself Jeremy is doing) to miss the point. All we said is the boxart is terrible. Nobody rational said anything about not buying the game because of it.
Anyway, for people who might have came in here wondering about the possibility of a reversible cover, just want to say that no. The inside cover (at least for the PS3 version) is plain white. You're stuck with proudly displaying your brand new copy of 10 OUT OF 10 on your shelf instead of Batman: Arkham City.
I'm still getting this but I'll probably print out something else for a cover. I thought this was a joke or a temp. cover until I just saw a commercial on tv for the GOTY edition. I didn't realize they let 12 year olds work at gaming companies....... this is f'ing UGLY.... >.<
lmao!!! Well I have it..... at least it doesn't say "10 Out of 10!" on the SIDE of the case. lol All you'll see while the case is on a shelf is "Game of the Year" and the game title. Kinda sad when the SIDE of a game case looks better then the front. heh
If you paid attention to the posts we're not saying we're not buying this because the cover's ugly..... we're just sayign this is THE UGLIEST COVER IN THE HISTORY OF GAMING..... We weren't aware they let 12 year olds come up with cover designs. >.<
Seriously, you all act like the look of the case matters as much as the very content of the game. I don't know about you, but I am not trying to set up a museum here. I got the GotY to have more fun stuff to on it, not stare at the case. Why don't you all simply buy the original Arkham City case and download all the DLC instead if you are that superficial.
Ha, you deleted your post. I actually read pretty well, unlike you, so... here is what you said: "hey look, another idot that doesn't realize what we're trying to say here even though i said it two posts up..... >.< O wait.... it's the SAME idiot. lol Did you even bother reading my reply?"
You may say it's the ugliest cover for a game, but what I am saying is that it does not matter because the cover of a game does not influence the amount of fun you can have on the game itself. Why do you think I mentioned about keeping the original Arkham City case and purchasing DLC off of PSN if people are that superficial? You obviously did not read my commet all the way, despite how short it was, "idiot".
lol apparently my post was deleted? wonder why (looks at amazon....). I didnt' curse or anything. but ya.... NJC.... before you post another idiotic commment, you might want to look at my last reply to you. In case it's not clear enough, WE'RE NOT SAYING WE'RE NOT BUYING THE GAME CAUSE THE COVER'S UGLY, we're just saying the cover's fracking UGLY. lmao
have you even read the thread? admittedly I haven't in awhile but i don't recall anyone actually saying they won't buy it just cause of an ugly cover designed by a 12 year old. >.< In fact i remember one or two other people trying to get the point across i initially said to you myself.....
Dude, who really cares what the cover looks like?!? The game is flipping awesome, in fact, its the best game ever!!! So why people complain about the cover I don't know. I will admit they could have done a better job, but if you don't like it, then don't look at it!!! Gheeshh! The stuff people complain about!!!
