    The fact that he's cutting a robot in half, rather than a flesh-&-blood soldier, is understandable from a marketing viewpoint, but I can't help but think of the "Samurai Jack" cartoon, where every enemy Jack sliced up with his sword was a robot (robot samurai, robot giant spider, etc.)


    Shut up and play games

    Pretty much what I expected, actually. Raiden on the cover (obviously) with a teal and orange color palette, cutting someone or something in half.

    It definitely catches your eye.

    Was hoping for a more traditional art design

    This was mentioned in a thread months ago but I think it's worth mentioning here.

    Aside from the really cool arrangement with Raiden looking stylish and imposing as ever while slicing through an enemy, it looks like this cover is using the Orange-and-Cyan Contrast design technique that has been extremely common in media covers for the past couple years or so. Even my recent logo designs and PSU sig/avatar abuse this technique and I didn't even realize it while making them.

    I think it's because Orange and Cyan are the only complementary colors that don't associate to anything culturally specific, unlike Red/Green (Christmas) and Violet/Yellow (fraternity, royalty)...so they have the most versatility. And opposing colors (these 3 pairs) give you the best contrast.

    Here's what I mean by the trend ---V

    Oh WOW, that's very insightful for you to notice that. I wouldn't have thought coloring would make a huge difference but there's a ton of blue and orange covers as you've shown. Interesting

    Huge thanks to my awesome friend Finalreaper for the sig!!

    Without even scrolling down thats what I thought of too

    The cover is cool, no doubt. But games really need some more interesting colours on covers. One of my recent favourites is Gravity Rush. You don't need blue/orange to be striking

    The trend is going strong as we move into 2013. Max Payne 3, Dishonored, Halo 4, and BioShock Infinite apparently also think it's pretty amazing.

    Oh dam, i wouldn't have noticed that

    Asked my friend who studied art, she told me blue and orange are used for contrast and attention
