Ohayocon 2016!

Real Talk By: J.Valdez

Another year, another Ohayocon come and gone, and with it, the sad reminder that real life is not as fun as Con life. Unfortunately this wasn’t the best Ohayocon. Don’t get me wrong though, I enjoyed myself like always, and so did Kat, but there were some things that didn’t work too well in favor of the convention. Continue reading “Ohayocon 2016!”

Ohayocon 2015!

Real Talk By: J.Valdez

This was my second time at Ohayocon. I knew I was in for a great weekend when I got to the lobby with a friend, and he ended up playing guitar for two other con goers that were singing/rapping. We didn’t know who they were, and I don’t think I saw them again during the weekend. This con was a bit different from the last, I made some friends through the facebook group, so I wasn’t just a lone wanderer this time. I met up on occasion with other con goers, friends, shared a few drinks, took a few pictures. Then at some point I decided to be on the other side of the camera. I became Wilfred, and walked through the con to see what it was like. It helped me see what it’s like to be a cosplayer, the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of it.

Spring 2013 Box Art Report Card

BoxArtCover

Real Talk by: StephO

Box art reviews for titles released between April and June of 2013 (Injustice: Gods Among Us, The Last of Us, Deadpool, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and Dead Island: Riptide).

Injustice_Gods_Among_Us_Cover_ArtInjustice: Gods Among Us- Including Batman AND Superman in the forefront is definitely eye catching! Featuring the Joker, Flash, and other characters helps reinforce that this is a fighting game. However the top half and bottom half meet in the center in a squashed and awkward way- there are too many things to focus on at first glance. Some visual hierarchy would help this cover artwork, but in the end it does get the point across and that’s what’s most important.

TheLastOfUsThe Last of Us- The look on Ellie’s face is what makes this cover artwork great. It would have been nice to see at least a silhouette of a menacing Infected in the background, but I suppose showing ONLY Joel and Ellie on the cover was kind of the point. The simple and understated design complements the game title.

Deadpool_video_game_coverDeadpool- There is not anything particularly wrong with this cover artwork, but with so many awesome trailers and a fun, creative website you would think the Deadpool cover would be a little more exciting. “This is what awesome looks like” is a nice touch though.

FC3_Blood_Dragon_CoverFar Cry 3: Blood Dragon- The amount of neon-cyborg-craziness crammed into this cover artwork is awesome. Almost every style choice- from layout to color palette to typeface -contributes to the retro 80’s fee. I want to see more laser-eyed blood dragons, but I suppose if the cover artwork leaves me wanting to see more then its doing its job right!

DeadIslandRiptideDead Island: Riptide- A gory yet painterly zombie head front and center with only the game title- made to look like it was stamped in blood -centered above. Wonderful! This game artwork is the winner of the Spring 2013 Box Art Report Card.

Guacamelee
