not a bad idea, might start one! tumblr is one of those things I think 'the kids' do, I feel too old for it, like a 2013 version of bebo or something tho

To be honest I'm a bit confused by it myself but they seem to be fairly easy to set up and allow other people to submit things so it doesn't have to be one person re-posting them all. I only set one up to write a comment on Alex W's but then realised that they don't really do comments. Oh.

youll probably find they did about 10 versions, some of which being great, but marketing made the call on the shittiest one.

Yup, it reminds me of the U.S box art for ICO on the PS2. Capturing none of the sense of wonder and exploration the game has ( because images to reflect such ambiguity and mystery would just confuse ) and just has the main character brandishing a big block of wood while the girl he protects sort of hovers in the background. Communicates the message of 'yep, you do twat things! And she's involved somehow! Get in!' a bit like Watchdogs 'you can hack stuff but s'alright, he's got a gun too'.

I don't see how you can get "hacking" from that. He's just a guy with a gun and an iPhone.

That'll be the square boxes linking to his phone implying some kind of manipulation or connection. But then maybe that would be inexplicable to someone who knew nothing about the game.
