Last week I showed you the cover of Okami for the Wii, which happened to include a watermark from IGN. That was bad, and we were all pretty shocked that it managed to slip through the cracks at Capcom. They've since made up for it by offering a free replacement cover. However, it has just come to our attention that Bradygames has also done the same thing with their Okami strategy guide.
Remember the other day when I showed you the botched box art for the Wii version of Okami? Well, Capcom has taken notice to the outraged public and decided to do something about it.
If you're appauled by the IGN watermark stamped on the case, Capcom wants to make you feel better. Just head on over to their website and give them your name and address, and you'll get your choice of three different box art covers (one is shown above). Sounds pretty painless to me.
I've always been a fan of Japanese artwork, especially their anime style. I can't really say why, but I enjoy the style more than even our Western comic book style. One thing that does tend to bother me is that they have a tendency to make some body parts disproportionate to the rest. Usually this means either big knockers or big heads. However, this has to be the first time I've seen the hands get so far out of whack.
If you've ever created a unique image that you wanted to be displayed on the internet, I'm sure you know what a watermark is for. While there are plenty of uses for watermarks, one important one is to make sure that no one else tries to take your work and claim it as their own. If they do try to claim ownership of the original artwork, they are made into complete fools by the presence of said watermark. That being said, Capcom has officially made fools out of themselves with the Wii port of Okami.
Man, this is going to be such an awesome year for gaming. There are so many games out there that I just can't wait for. Hovering towards the top of the list is Street Fighter IV. Seriously, how long have we been waiting for another sequel? We've already seen one of the new characters, Abel. Here's a peek at yet another character that's been added to the lineup.
So you might remember that I stood out in the freezing cold not too long ago in order to procure a Wii. I'll have to admit that my work ethic has been somewhat slacking since that very purchase. I've not really gotten into a golf game since I played Jack Nicklaus Golf on my Mac way back in the day. However, now that I've gotten a taste for those 9 holes in Wii Sports, I must have more. Thankfully Capcom's got my back.
