Bad Video Game Cover Art

Hello fellow gamers, and welcome to an old topic! I loved critiquing bad video game art in the past, and decided to give it another go. Now, let’s facepalm and cringe at some true garbage!

  •  Brawl Brothers for the SNES Genre: Beat em’ Up (1992) Plot: The sequel to Rushing Beat that has players beating up hordes of bad guys. Publisher: Jaleco 

I always have loved Beat em’ Ups, and find them to be mindless fun. This specific game was heavily praised by critics for its graphics and fluid gameplay. Unfortunately the cover is complete crap! We get this “ultra-cool” beefcake guy breaking out of a brick wall. His face is contorted like he’s constipated, and his nose  is bulbous and phallic. If the artists had taken more time on this piece, it could be pretty to look at, but as of now, it’s trash!

  • Art of Fighting for the Sega Mega Drive (1992) Creator: SNK Genre: Fighting Description  The first game of the Art of Fighting trilogy that pits players against each other, and mixes up the game with some desperation attacks. 

Ugh! This series of fighting games are very clunky, and many of the characters are extremely overpowered. However, it is also famous for starting the “super attacks” in many of the popular fighters of today. The artwork for this game is all over the place, with some parts being awesome, and others being disturbing. Most of the work looks like a cheesy 80’s action film with bell-bottom jeans, a bright orange karate gis. Then, we get to the faces, and all hell breaks loose! Robert Garcia’s face is pseudo-realistic which really blurs the line, and makes the viewer feel uncomfortable. Then, we get to Ryo, who has a giant leg, and appears to be kicking a goon right in the face. The goon is the best part of the piece, and his face is contorted into pure exaggerated pain.

More Crappy Book Covers (Every Other Tuesday)

Hello fellow book lovers! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more crappy covers. Now, let the cringefest begin!

  • From The Dust (Unalive Book 2) by Sid Ghost Released: December 3rd, 2013 Genres: Gothic Fiction and Horror 152 Pages Quick Summary: A book about the battle between 2 vampires.

This is one of the most generic covers I’ve ever seen. It has a black background with boring white text. There’s also a very “scary” vampire in the center. The cover looks like it was done in 20 minutes, and the book’s story would need to be exceptional to have anyone purchase it.

  • The Waters of Chaos Book 3 by Marc Severson Released: July 2nd, 2016 Pages: 252 Genres: Western, Horror, and Fiction Short Summary: People are getting infected by a mysterious sickness, and it’s up to the Chaos Police Department to stop it.

I ironically really enjoy this cover. The wavy text really reminds me of old-school word art, and gives me some nostalgia. The surrounding background has these really trippy rocks and minerals, that cause the book to glow. I actually would want to read this one, and would love to hear what you think of it in the comments’ section below.

Asher’s Favorites (Webtoons Edition Part 1)

Hello fellow followers, and welcome to a very special post! I have always been a huge fan of Manga, and when I heard about Webtoons from The Anime Man, I about fainted right then and there! Webtoons is a free comic platform for the iOS and Android that houses stories from around the world. It started as a platform for only Korean comics, (Manhwa), but it now has reached a global market. The app has numerous genres of comics and many different writing styles. I guarantee that you’ll find something you love, and I’d love to hear about it in the comments’ section below. The following are some of my favorites webtoons, and a short summary of each. Don’t worry though, I won’t go into spoilers.

  • Bastard by Youngchan Hwang and Carnby Kim Genres: Horror, Thriller, Tragedy, Mature, Manhwa 

Bastard is an incredible comic about a troubled teenager named Jin Seon. We learn from the beginning that terrible things are happening behind closed doors. What starts as a standard murder mystery soon escalates into a much darker event that will leave the readers on edge. If you love Psychological Thrillers, I can’t recommend this series enough. I’m being as vague as possible, because everything else is a major spoiler. The writing is incredible, and I could totally see this comic becoming a film. Final Rating 10/10 (Flawless!) Posted below is the link to the online version of the comic. Started June 8th, 2015 Complete as of May 19, 2017 with 93 Episodes

  • Adventures of God by Teo and Corey Genres: Comedy, Satire, ParodyDark Humor

This particular comic had me laughing from chapter one, and I adore the hidden undertones. As the name suggests, Adventures of God is about God and his family up in heaven. Satan also makes many appearances in the comic, and he’s absolutely hilarious. God is depicted as a bit of a drunkard, whose problems are usually solved by his assistant, Gabe. The comic also parodies many important events in religious history, such as Adam & Eve, and Noah’s ark. The art style reminds me a lot of Family Guy, and I think that it perfect for this kind of story. I highly recommend this comic to people who want a good laugh, and don’t get offended by religious satire.

Then, the final nail in the coffin occurs when the Let’s Player becomes Sam’s new neighbor! Things to expect from this series; Nerd Culture, Adorable Dogs, and Relatable Characters.

  • My Giant Nerd Boyfriend by fishball Genres: Comedy, Slice of life

This adorable comic depicts the daily life of Fishball, a 5’2” Malaysian artist with a 6’6” boyfriend. This comic really hit home for me because of its depiction of tall people problems. I’m 6’2”, and many of the events in the comic have happened to me. I also love the art style, which is very cute and Asian. I recommend this comic to absolutely everyone, and you’ll grow to love the characters very fast. Final Verdict 9.8/10 (Adorable art and a story that will make you feel warm and fuzzy) Started March 5th, 2017 Updates Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday Total Episodes: 209

  • HIVE by Kyusam Kim Genres: Horror, Thriller, Suspense, Giant Animals, Survival, Tragedy, Apocalyptic

If you have Apiphobia, stay far away from this comic! The story is about gigantic bees that take over the world. The main character, Lee, is trying to find his family, and the world is on the brink of collapse. It’s filled with plot twists, betrayals, awesome characters, mature content, and tons of crazy insects. It’s a hell of a ride that I recommend to lovers of The Walking Dead, Lord of the Flies, and Horror in general.

  • Small World by Wonsun Jin Genres: LGBT, Slice of life, Heartwarming, 

Thanks to webtoon, I’ve been widening my horizons on comics, and reading more stories about Gay and Lesbian couples. I am a completely straight guy, but these comics are freaking amazing, and I really respect that they bring these relationships to the general public. This specific one is about Julien and Robin, a gay couple that have very different attitudes. Robin is very laid back and kind of shy, while Julien is extremely protective and hyper. They show their love for one another in completely different ways, and it’s always a joy to see how each character reacts to various events. I recommend this series to everyone, because it’s guaranteed to make you feel warm inside. Final Verdict 9.5/10 (Incredibly sweet and touching) Started on August 31st, 2017 Updates Every Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday Total Episodes: 162
