For my fans, and for those who've followed me, you've probably gathered that this box is statistically my first in one whole year. Hopefully I've returned with the desired bang.

Throughout that year I've taken numerous breaks, and I wasn't as active. As time gradually went on, I had the urge to make another box. I started a rough concept in January earlier this year, and throughout I've had help from numerous artists, most notably Indexenos, ELCrazy and Koopa Dasher. I plan on staying and posting up a few more boxes, except this my swing back into full motion. I'll be posting a few more boxes until I depart once more un-noticeably.

A suitable game for your return, Xcore. Looks great too, of course. Really like the dirty splatter design you have going, and the different colors spread throughout look great, especially on the front. Your typography is really nice too, it's simple, but very effective.

Excellent work bruv. I love how the front is so loose and open, while the back is so tight and focused (inb4 sex joke.) I especially like the block-like layout of your text + screens, great job.

Four-part series? I'd like to see that happen, man :)

Less is certainly more in this instance. I really like the whole concept of this. The colours compliment each other really nicely, the layout is good and as sd1833 said, the typography is really nice.

Im really looking forward to seeing Metal Gear 3 and 4 if you continue making the series in this style. Very well done man.

I love it! This gives a modern feel to one of my all time favorite games, and fondest videogame memories. Perfect in every way.

#18, It's a work of art bro. It doesn't need real world legal limitations.

#18, I didn't just copy and paste images into the box like you do. I edited them heavily, this is around 6 months of work right here.

#18 Doesn't know what he's talking about. Fabulous box, might I ask what font that is for the Type on the layout?

Can you put the logo on the cover? As fantastic as this design is it just feels wrong not including the logo on the front cover. It just has this "something is missing" feel to it.

I really like that you didn't use a template for it, and that the logo isn't present on the cover. The artwork speaks for itself, and needs no introduction.

I really think the splatter effect on the front and back looks great. Not really that much to do with the game, but looks really nice.
