I spent 3 days (not WHOLE days, just days) on this. I, personally, love how it came out. I tried making it as realistic as possible. Again, ALOT of work went into this, so I really hope you guys like it. I am brewing up a presentation idea, and Ill add Version 2 tomorrow. Well, enjoy.

box is fantasic, but i suggest that you make the gears of war skull logo on the back more visibil, i could hardly tell what it was

#9, No offense, I like you, but thats crazy. You need to get your eyes checked or computer monitor fixed. I can see it perfectly, and so can other people.
But thanks for the nice comment. Glad you guys like it.

I think the logo placemenet is a bit strange on the front but the back is AMAZING.

#11, Thanks. And as for my logo placement, I didnt want to cover Marcus Fenix in his badass pose, OR cover the Gears of War skull. So I thought the top would do. Thanks for your comment.

#14, yeah, I noticed that, its mostly because of 3D, you can see the text better in Version 1. Thanks for the comment

The back, like everyone has said, is awesome.

I only feel that the front feels empty. Might I suggest some embers/post effects and probably some choppers in the sky. Also, The skull behind the logo is quite faint. Even at 100% brightness of my LCD I can barely make it out. I suggest using the skull at full opacity, it will greatly reduce the emptyness.

Youphoria 28 [ 1 decade ago ]

#21, thanks for the comment...but I STILL dont get how you guys cant make it out. I can see it perfectly, honestly. So can some other people Ive talked to about my box. I cannot go back and edit it though, I did not save a PSD version (I was going to, but forgot to *slaps own head*)

#23, it wont get in the hall...people dont appreciate effort these days, they are more focused on making fun of noobs boxes instead of giving someone positive feedback on a box that took 3 days.

@#24, the feeling is mutual. Really, I had to force some people to look at my earlier boxes, by bumping them periodically.

I love it. +fav
Although, I would tone up the opacity on the skull just a bit. Not too much, but a bit.

The back looks really nice. I'm not digging the front though. I feel that there is way too much empty space at the top and the game title is a bit small. Overall i think you did a pretty good job. ^^d

hate to bump this, but there's one small thing bugging me. the pic of marcus on the front. i don't like how you flipped him, he's not left-handed and it looks weird. but that doesn't affect my score, brilliant box. 5/5

Its cool but i don't think its HoF worthy.

Youphoria 28 [ 1 decade ago ]

#51, what you think doesnt matter. Something has to get a certain amount of FAVs to get into the HoF, so anything in the HoF deserves to be in. So this, your Bioshock box, and those Lego boxes are worthy since they succeeded in getting the FAVs.

WickedGamer1 37 [ 1 decade ago ]

sorry to be harsh, but the front logo is trash, and the back is way under-exciting.
plus marcus isn't a lefty like link.
lol
just make the whole thing bigger, and more exciting.

TrevOwnz 41 [ 1 decade ago ]

#54 yeah, the back is plain and i don't see anything on this box that is good. Its all blurry and the whole back i cant see or read. Why do you get in with a box you cant even read when you zoom in. Terrible quality.

[ Reply ]


avatar
Youphoria 28 [ 1 decade ago ]

#55, why are you blaming me. You sound like an asshole man. You have nothing good to say. All youre doing is insulting my box. I dont see any constructive criticism. In short: stop being a dick. ;)
And by the way, Im gonna update this with one with better quality to piss you off.

Updated. Made the back text legible, made the fronts logo (skull and main logo) better quality and more legible, changed Marcus Fenix so he looks normal, and changed the presentation to retain some quality.

#56, Careful, that's the kind of attitude that once got me a temp ban. Control your temper. He was just voicing his opinion.

yummybrains 30 [ 1 decade ago ]

this looks really good and as mt says dont do stupid things like that you'll only get a ban
i know i've already commented but this version is much better

Youphoria 28 [ 1 decade ago ]

#60, opinions are fine, but there was no constructive criticism. I have no patience for assholes who only have bad things to say with no CC to give.
All he did was complain about quality and complain that it got into the HoF.

Namecalling is only necessary with trolls.

#66, fine then: "TrevOwnz, instead of just complaining that my box got into the HoF and insulting it, give constructive criticism."
And I control my temper, I didnt blow up, I just think he is a snot.
