Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, you may have noticed the number of stories slowing down here. Time moves on, but I'll always keep posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age.
Since I don't have the time or content for a Patreon or YT channel, please consider clicking an ad to help reach my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Freedom Wars gets some damn ugly box art

The Vita has done pretty well in the world of box art, I can look through most of my cases and think the artist has done a good job. In the age of digital products, perhaps it doesn't mean quite as much, but even so there's little excuse for this mess.

We've got a whole lot of blurring, a logo in acres of wasted space, an indistinct monster, the hero facing into the image and no clear idea of what the claw is doing and the sword cut off on the edge of the pic. The bottom third is all wasted and why there's some random scaffolding, I have no idea? I suppose the recent videos do a far better job of explaining the game, but even so this is candidate for worst box art.
