– has pretty much introduced all the designers
– special mention of the internal Monolith Soft staff
– without their hard work, the huge variety of different designs from the various designers would not be unified into one game world

2014’s Box Art: The Year in Review

December 22nd, 2014

Gaming is as deeply entrenched in the online age as it’s ever been, with more downloadable games hitting storefronts than ever before. So there’s no better time than now, while we still can, to commemorate the year through the lens of box art.

So many hours and so much thought goes into creating box art, with designers working their utmost to grab consumer attention at ground level. That makes for a curious mix of designs, turning the average store shelf into a kaleidoscope of logos, familiar faces, and occasionally glittering artwork. That very much remain the case this year.

We’ve taken 50 of 2014’s retail releases – we’ve restricted it to games that hit physical store shelves (sorry, Shovel Knight) – and compiled them into a gallery to chronicle the year. As for which box art stood out from the rest, we welcome you to illuminate us in the comments.

What was your favorite video game box art of 2014? Which of the covers we didn’t include were ones you really liked? And what about the coulda-shoulda-done-betters? Let us know!

amiibo update – The email from Toys R’ Us you DON’T want, and Captain Falcon lagging behind

December 22nd, 2014

This weekend, we shared an email from Toys R’ Us that some amiibo preorder customers received. Their original preorders that were cancelled had been reinstated, with TRU apologizing for the issue. Seems like everyone isn’t getting that email, as TRU may also send you this one.

We are reaching out today regarding the recent cancellation that has occurred with your online order(s). Unfortunately, there was a processing error that caused your order(s) to cancel. Legally, we cannot reinstate your order(s) however we are working to put a process in place that will allow you to purchase these items within the week. We will be reaching out to you as soon as we have specifics and appreciate your patience and understanding. We sincerely apologize for this cancellation and the inconvenience it has caused and will be in touch shortly.

So not terrible, but certainly not as good as the first situation. Either way, keep an eye on your email if you preordered from TRU.

Also worth noting, it seems that Captain Falcon is going to be lagging behind in Wave 2 store releases. Multiple retailers show the Captain as launching later than the other Wave 2 amiibo. If you’re looking to add Captain Falcon’s amiibo to your roster, you’re going to be in for quite the hunt.
