Game Box Art Recreated With Cute Japanese Stock Art

I don’t know what a ‘meme’ is anymore. First they used them for science, then memes escaped a lab as a virus in a monkey, then Internet turned the viruses into jokes, and then the virus infected every other form of joke. (I think, at this point, we’re either safe or have ourselves become memes?)

All I know for certain is that delightful recreations of video game box art using cheery stock art have recently filled my corner of the Internet, and I think you might like them.

Just Cause 3 Patch Cutting Load Times Ahead Of DLC

Just Cause 3 [official site] will be ready to blast off with a cracking-looking rocketpack in the Sky Fortress DLC on March 8th, Square Enix announced today, though only folks who pay for all the DLC up-front in the Season Pass will get to play then. Folks who’d buy it separately will need to wait until the 15th.

On the bright side, a free update is coming for all and sundry tomorrow, bringing performance improvements, faster load times, and more fine things.

Just Cause 3 DLC Pretty Much Adding An Iron Man Suit

You know those bits in the Iron Man movies where Timmy Stark rockets up into the sky then does fancy barrel rolls dodging missiles while blasting his shoulderguns? Great, aren’t they? Our lad Rico Rodriguez is getting into that game too, as publishers Square Enix have announced that the first big Just Cause 3 [official site] DLC pack is adding what is, pretty much, an Iron Man suit. (Without all the armour – Rico likes his chest hair rippling in the wind, you know.) Observe these antics:

Frustrated Pirates Prophesise The Death Of Game Piracy

And on that bombshell

My eyebrow’s raised so high that it’s knocking plaster off the ceiling, but it’s worth sharing this oddity as a talking point if nothing else. It seems Just Cause 3 [official site]’s DRM is still presenting stiff competition to crackers over a month on from release, prompting one pirate collective to predict that we are in the game piracy end times. “According to current trends in the development of encryption technology, in two years time I’m afraid there will be no free games to play in the world.”

Obviously that’s garbage, both because people willingly make tons of free games and because many paid games choose not to include DRM at all, but maybe DRM really has become a new force to be reckoned with.

Sky Fortress Ahoy: Just Cause 3’s Patch & DLC Plans

Open-world explore ‘n’ explode ‘em up Just Cause 3 [official site] has been out for a month now (it’s pretty great!) and the most exciting news around is surely that a multiplayer mod is coming from the JC2MP folks. All the game’s actual creators, Avalanche Studios, have to talk about is future patches and DLC plans. Pssh. Sure, yeah, I bet your performance boosts are great and all, but I’m far more interested in my PC grinding to a halt trying to render the antics of five dozen parachuting murdermaniacs. Ah! Pssh. Fine. Go on then, Avalanche, speak up.

Just Cause 3 Multiplayer Mod In The Works

When I received definitive confirmation that Just Cause 3 [official site] wouldn’t have any multiplayer support out of the box, I felt like I’d been punched in the gut. If memory serves, I was talking to one of the game’s producers at the time so it’s entirely possible that I left the room wincing, with a wounded expression on my face. Later in the day, when I’d recovered, Avalanche told me that their dedication to modding support would allow for all manner of enjoyable shenanigans and, sure enough, the team behind the Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod have released the first footage of Just Cause 3 Multiplayer. Delicious.

Just Cause 3 Ignoro Gallery – Cool Guys Don’t Look At Explosions

Well, it’a a tradition now. As with Just Cause 2, and this year’s Mad Max, it is imperative that we gather together images of Avalanche’s central heroes not looking at the enormous explosions they’ve caused.
