Print A More Atmospheric BioShock Infinite Cover

While the story and visuals of BioShock Infinite can certainly be works of art, the box cover is anything but. It's a generic image of a male protagonist with a gun over his shoulder as he stares off into the distance.

Gaming Under the Influence: Jetpack Joyride

I've been recovering from a series of oral surgeries for the past few weeks.
