Anyone have the Dog Day's box art as a wallpaper, with all the mature rating, IO pic gone, Xbox 360 or PS3 strip at top gone and also in a psp shape? I think it's 1600 x 900 resolution.

I would totally do it by myself, but my photoshopping skills are horrendous. Unless anyone could show me, i am using Advancepaint.

I believe it's on the Kane & Lynch 2 website kit.... and I don't have that downloaded at the moment. Sorry.

I don't think it was in the website kit and I don't think it's been released in wallpaper form yet. Sorry.

Thats a shame. The box art would look great for a wallpaper. I will look in the website kit.

That's not exactly a wallpaper though. Still, good job.

That is awesome Grievous, thanks!

The background is rubbish, but the detail on the characters is really cool.
Without you Grievous, i would not exist.

Edit: Just tried it on my psp, is it possible if you can make it wider? Like i said, i would do this myself but i totally suck, i tried earlier and somehow gave it a fuzzy look and changed the colour to black with a transparent Naughty Bear covering Lynch's face.

I tried looking, i swear! I typed in Kane and Lynch 2 Dog Days box art psp wallpapers.
Quite a long search but i never found anything decent.

The wallpaper you just posted and the one with Lynch pointing his finger are the only ones i can find, are there any more?

For someone that is so outspoken about the box art, it's amusing that you of all of us have it on your hard drive, Grievous. That's irony for you.

Actually it kind of makes sense that i of all people should have the highest quality of the box art , so it gives me a better justification at criticizing it , because even now , as big as it is , It Still LOOKS LIKE AMATEURISH CRAP ...

I mean seriously , look at Kane , he is shouting at us to stay away from this aweful game ... Aweful ! ...

And for someone who never played Kane & Lynch before , you think he's going to get excited by the sight of a hobo rushing towards him ? ...

And again , for someone who never heard of both Dog Days or Mafia II , which game is he going to pick up on August Twenty Four ? the two old men above ? or this ? ...

You know, for somebody that hates so much on the cover I was expecting you pointed out some good work...but that steaming **** of mafia 2? do I even need to bother telling you why it sucks?

Generic concept, generic pose and the rendering is bad.
While DogDay's not super brilliant, it still manages to do things better, the scene is dinamic the colors are striking and at least they bothered to make a good rendering.


ps: about those old mens...it's not like you're going to play with Miss Croft anyway.

If I didn't know anything about K&L then I would most likely pick up Mafia II because the Dog Days cover is indeed pretty lame. It looks like a very genetric shooter...which it is not so I find the cover very misleading.

I picked Mafia II because it comes out the same day as Dog Days , that doesn't make it a good box art , but it looks / represents the tone of the game a lot better than Dog Days does with its box art ...
No distinct indication that it's in Shanghai , the crime capital of the world ...
The awkward pixelations will confuse people into thinking it's just some unpolished work rather the intentional style of the game ...
True , the lightning is pretty good ... but who the **** even cares about lightning besides a small few ...

Mafia II has got guys , guns , cars , generic and people love it , well at least they'll be a lot less 'frightened' compare to that weird looking thing right next to it ...

I much prefered of course the Mafia II artwork they used at the end of Bioshock 2's manual , here's the half of it ...

You just made a description of what bad covers are made of.
Too much stuff, too obvious, I'm sorry, but your idea of a good cover is terrible. It doesn't have to explain the game, you don't have to know who Lynch is, or why he's in Shangai, it has to catch the eye and be symbolic about its content.

Criterion's famous for its covers, so I'm just going to take one and show you why you're wrong.
This is Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo cover:
http://imgur.com/xdPKW.jpg

For those who don't know, Yojimbo is the story of a ronin wich find himself in a middle of a gang war in a japanese rural village; you may notice how there's nothing of this in the cover, there's no village, there's no Toshiro Mifune(the protagonist) there's no samurai or swords. Nothing.

Yet it tell us so much about the movie, the paper texture set the atmosphere of old Japan, the symbol echoes the Japanese clan's with a little twist with the guns(wich are part of the movie); but most of all we gather it from the title, it's sliced as if cut with a katana.
This is a good cover, it's simple(so the elements don't get lost) there's a clear prority and it comunicates what the movie's about.

This strong artistic direction is missing in games, only a few dares to go behind the commercial stuff.

I agree with you that both cover aren't any special, but you don't understand the reason why and so you think mafia's boring cover is better; it's not, it's dull lifeless. Even if mundane, DogDay's is bold, colorfull, dinamic.

As another example, take DogDays war junkie trailer and Deus Ex cgi trailer.
They're both technically incredible, but one is a videogame trailer(DeusEx) the other is not, it's more deep.
In DeusEx everything is explained, there's too much narration, too much diaolog; in DogDay's it show us, it doesn't tell. Keep in mind that both have to showcase the characters and the action of the games, but in the end war junkie tells so much more, and it's so much more interesting, it's emotional without the need of a musical crescendo.

This is what Kane & Lynch is capable of , a lot of things going on but it's all 'tightened' up , it's focused , it's clean , it's ... Different ...

It shows us ... it doesn't tell us specifically what's going on ...

And indeed , Dog Days also shows us things , but what is it ? ...
What does it shows ? ...

It doesn't have to explain why Lynch is here and why Shanghai , but it has to at least Present us that it's a tale that can't not happen in anywhere else but Shanghai (as the developers seemed to have taken a great interest in this city , it Must be a focus point) ...
It doesn't have to be crammed with images , one would suffice in fact , one wide image of Lynch and Kane's silhouette running , tired , with a neon lighted Shanghai in the background ...

It isn't because it looks bold , colorful and dynamic that means that it's instantly better than the dull and mundane , because one would then show a picture of a corpse , it will bold , very coloful , and would sure to grasp your attention ... but you're seriously going to tell me that the image of a corpse is better than whatever bland image you have next to you ? ...

Ok, you need to take the pills now.
First, stop posting gigantic pictures it ****s up the thread. Ok thanks.

Second, you missed the part where I said it does need to be symbolic, there's nothing symbolic in showing something graphic for the attention, it doesn't tell us anything of the subject. Also, of course bold doesn't mean better, I've posted Yojimbo's cover as an example of a better cover than DogDay's, and it's everything but bold.

About DeadMen's cover, I've said it, and I'll say it again, it's not good.
I like the gun's silhouette, but the pastiche of images sucks. It's a collage of in game pictures, you can't make it more obvious than that; also, floating heads. DogDay's still better than that.

A better cover than DogDay's could be this:

You seem to be missing the point that we're not here to talk about which box art is better than Dog Days , we were talking about what will the most common people think about when they go to their favorite retail shop on the morning on August Twenty Four , and i used Dead Men to show once again how we've come from art to generic ...

Also the symbolism in covers is a flawed argument , for example i will say that Dead Men's box art is symbolic , whereas you say it's just a collage of game pictures , i will say that's a deep representation of what life is for men like these , and besides the head are not just floating heads , they only come from the guns , the tools that define their lives ...
And then another person will come and say that he finds Halo 3's cover way more symbolic and emotional than Yojimbo's cover , you can't say that the guy is wrong for seeing something symbolic where you don't ...


Anywya , This is the best box art for Dog Days ...

They'll see what they'll see, we can't tell, what we can tell is if it's good or bad.
