A Video Gamers Digest
Video Games are a unique media that are enjoyed by people, both young and old worldwide. Adults, teens, and kids all play games to escape to a fantasy world, educate themselves, get up and dance or just socialize with friends.
My aim in creating Games News Network is to build a place where I could show others all the great games, media and news that come out of the industry. It's all about giving back to an industry that has given gamers so much.

About two weeks ago Irrational Games revealed the box art for the upcoming Bioshock Infinite. This reveal didn't go over too well, with a lot of people disliking the box art. This week Ken Levine and Irrational Games are giving gamers the option to choose an alternate cover for the game; turning the original into a reversible cover (a la Mass Effect 3). Head over HERE to cast you vote for said alternate cover. Personally I like Designs #2, #4 and #6 but that's just me. What say you, what's your pick for the alternate box art?

Last week Irrational Games released the new box art for Bioshock Infinite coming next year. The box art shows main character Booker DeWitt looking all bad-ass, shotgun in hand and the flag burning in the background. It's impressive many would say. I however don't really fancy it. The lack of Elizabeth on the cover next to DeWitt or anywhere (on the front) doesn't do it for me. Yes you'll be playing as Booker but Elizabeth is also a key part of the game, it would have been nice to see her upfront and center. But that's just me, others think it's OK while others share a similar opinion to mine.
Elizabeth is however on the back of the box but that's the back of the box. Seriously, how often do you look at the back of a game box after you've purchased it. Most likely you only do the initial glance the moment you get it in your hands and then never look back there again.
