Is Vanquish a Video Card in Disguise?

I'm a big fan of motherboard and video card box art, and every time I see the artwork for Vanquish, all I can think is "Man, that would look even sweeter fading away in the window of a crappy computer parts store that really must just be a front for dog fighting or gambling or something."

That might be a big mech, it's not clear.

...why did he put it on the 9400 case?  Does anyone else not notice that?

Lol I'm pretty sure it's shopped. That IS the Vanquish dude you're looking at.

Yes, but can it run Crysis?

Haha that high-larious!

Not the first time a console-only game got featured as the art for a video card...  I forget what the previous one I saw was...

Oh, don't you know? He was an intern for a while and the guys said "what the hell, why not?"

What has been seen... cannot be unseen...

I can't tell if you're making fun of Vanquish or not. I sure hope not because... um... well... yeah it won't be good. -_- 
 
GOTY! GOTG!

Fuck you Vinny. 
 
I'll never look at the box-art the same way.

@Vinny:  I'm glad that you and photoshop combined forces to act on this insane internal image of yours and make it an internal image that EVERY person in this thread now has.

This is a total Vinny observation.

Did you pick PNY as a P.N.03 joke or am I just crazy?

I have a GeForce PNY, and I approve of this message.

@Diamond: They did have Mass Effect on the box for the ATI cards at one point.

Like before it got ported?  I can believe that.  Darksiders was on some GPU box before it was announced on PC AFAIK too.

I don't understand it, but for some reason this has just made me really want to buy Vanquish.

Posted by MetalGearSunny

haha, you're right, they look really similar.

@Vinny:  You should've photoshopped Bayonetta on that thing instead. Preferably with PCI ports on her feet that shoot video cards made of hair.

Please post more twitter updates / forum posts Vinny.

Holy crap, that actually looks better than what was on my box :( 

Posted by HallwayGiant

Nah, motherboards/video cards have way 'better' art than Vanquish could ever hope to have.

that fan looks like the batmobile
Posted by DoctorWelch

So what I'm getting from this is that if I take the vanquish disk and jam it in the 360 with another disk, that other game will look twice as good?

@Vinny: There is no way Sega would ever think of a marketing strategy that brilliant. 
Posted by AlisterCat

I do find it ironic how often graphics cards manufacturers have really crappy logos and 3D models that look like they were made in the 90s.

I dunno man, remember that time when they lowered everyone's expectations of the Sonic franchise over a 15 year period, just so that people would be amazed that Sonic 4 was actually playable? 
 
That's dedication right there. Dedication to the fucking cause.

@Tebbit: You mean like how they've been building up the hype for Shenmue III and the Dreamcast II by not saying anything about either of them for 10-ish years? You're right, all this time I though Sega was terrible at marketing and whatnot, but in reality, they're geniuses!

But will it run idtech 5?

It's about time we got this right.

@LordAndrew: Haha, that's fucking hilarious. And yeah, about damned time too.

Now that you mention it...

Posted by 1p

Spot on, Vinny.

Posted by TheHT

NOOOOOOOOOO!! I can't unsee that! When I play vanquish all I'll be thinking is 'this is one impressive tech demo!'

Posted by ashton

So can we expect a review for this game or at least a QL?

Posted by FluxWaveZ

Oh wow, it's true.

Posted by Skald

Wow. Totally.

Posted by Killroycantkill

NERD! LOL, this is actually really funny.

Posted by crunchmonkey
Posted by Crocio

Fits perfectly well!

Posted by YukoAsho

Oh man, that is SO true!
 
Hell, Platinum should just make a PC version so it can get packed in with video cards, that shit is perfect.
