I had to look at the box for a solid 5 seconds before seeing the title
What are you talkin about the name is clear there. It's Game of the Year Edition. You've never played Game of the Year Edition?

Enough joking but I do agree that the Game's name should be top Center, or at least bigger than Game of the Year Edition

Cubivore: Survival of the Fittest for GameCube

Cubivorebox.jpg


This game, in my opinion, has the ugliest video game logo on the GameCube, probably ever. Most game logos convey the tone of the game, like Luigi's Mansion, Animal Crossing, or the Legend of Zelda. What does this logo tell me? Nothing. They opted for a boring-ass font that does not fit well with the game's aesthetic at all, and made minimal effort to convey what the game is like. Oh wow, you put fangs and an eye on the C. Really creative, Atlus. Couldn't they go with a blockier font to fit in with the "cube" asthetic instead of whatever font they actually went with?

Here you go. You maybe thinking I'm crazy but I'm not. It's the iconic Ghostbusters. But look at it from someone who doesn't even know what Ghostbusters is. A white generic ghost with a black background. Sure the logo is used in the words to replace the "O" but even the font is wrong. The one on the right is the Japanese Famicom version and that even had the right font from the movie. Same goes for the Sega versions. The same black background with the same ghost and same boring font the NES International one had. On master system, the black background is now turned to white checkerboard pattern. Other console versions of Ghostbusters around the same time least have the actors or characters on the box. :ninja:

wasn't bad boxart mega man in marvel vs capcom? it was intended as a joke for Inafune from what I remember.

He was in Street Fighter X Tekken and he's kind of awesome. They aged him 25 years since his picture was taken for the NES box art and just turned him into this bumbling doofus. I would play the shit out of a game about this guy.

ah, that's it. thanks. I'm a huge mega man fan, but that version is pretty funny. :D

Yeah some people took offence to it, like they were making fun of Mega Man. But he's clearly not Mega Man, he's North American Mega Man, who already looked like a doofus anyway.

yeah, I know Inafune left capcom, because he was fed up with the way they did things at that company. I think some people took offense to it, because it was like a stab at Inafune's creation. still, if given a choice, I'd prefer the normal mega man look.

Ah, I didn't realize it was around the time he left, that makes sense why people would get offended. Apparently Inafune's reasoning for wanting it to be this guy was that the traditional Mega Man had already been in a lot of fighting games so he wanted to do something weirder and more interesting. I definitely respect that.
