PixlBit's 2011 Supplemental Awards

Just when you thought awards season was over...

Winner - Catherine

Katherine peeks at the lucky buyer from askew hipster glasses, a look of slight discomfort mixed with bemused sexuality across her face. Her hair is tousled. She rests, back arched, her backside in the air (if this cover had a reverse angle shot, it would go nicely with the tone the game shoots for), our “hero” Vincent, dangling precariously from the hem of her standard black shirt, struggles to ascend her perfect body, while Sheepmen spiral to their doom all around him.

Katherine herself is a delicate one to put on the cover of the game. While the PS3 cover, featuring the titular Catherine undressing, is more in your face, the Xbox 360’s more subtle cover tells much more about the game. It hints at both its sexual nature while showcasing Vincent's struggle.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and the Xbox 360 cover for Catherine couldn't ring that age-old saying any truer. The use of splashy reds, pinks, blacks and yellows draw the eye, while the art itself tells a story of what gamers can expect from the contents within. The Catherine covers are the best of 2011 because they dared to be different. To show a sensuality and vulnerability not often found on a video game cover.

These types of awards are always fun. Surprised Uncharted 3 didn't win best graphics (though I played BF3 on PS3). Would have picked either Rayman or Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet for art direction. I agree with a lot of these picks though.

Nerds Without Pants Episode 188: By Grabthar's Hammer, What a Podcast

Well hello there! In this episode of Nerds Without Pants we put on our creative caps and brainstorm what we’d like to see in the next Mass Effect game. Fair warning: Julian and Justin are fresh off of recent Mass Effect playthroughs, so the amount of nerdy lore being thrown around is HUGE.
