It seems that fans of Sega and Platinum’s sexy action title Bayonetta have had plenty of reasons to be happy lately. And with this announcement of a sensual art book and DVD package entitled The Eyes of Bayonetta, fans also have a great reason to break out their wallets yet again.
The book is set to contain “character sketches, CG models, monsters, weapons, and location designs” with an added “creator commentary”. The DVD is also set to contain an hour of exclusive behind the scenes goodness. The release date has not been announced but it has got a price of $39.99, and you can pre-order it on amazon already.
Seems like a good package overall. I really love these kinds of merchandise and this seems like it’s set to contain a great deal of treats. Good job Udon!
So a poster over at the Something Awful forums has discovered a pretty awesome web comic. A beautiful, epic comic which I just can’t do justice to in text. Click here to see the post which shows and somewhat explains the comic. Although to be honest, nothing can prepare you for the beauty and drama, of Tails Gets Trolled.

While generic ‘man standing in front of an explosion’ box arts are all we usually get for action games, Sega has dodged that trend with it’s reveal of the stylish Aliens: Colonial Marines box art. This could also signal that the game is somewhat close to being played as the box art is one of the last things made before a game is usually shipped.
But how rude of me! I haven’t even shown it to you yet. Hit the jump to see the Aliens: Colonial Marines box art in all it’s glory!
The events for Sonic’s 20th birthday just keep on going! Starting December 2nd, Brave New Worlds comic store in Philadelphia Pennsylvania will be hosting an art show inspired entirely by the hedgehog of the year, Sonic. Sonic Generation Art Show will be running from December 2nd through the entire month of December. You can check out the website’s main page to view some previews of contributing artists as well as the art show’s Facebook page. So who wants to pay for my gas money to drive 5 hours across the state for the show?
…. seriously I have a PayPal, we can do donations.

Hello listeners, how are you? I am fine.
So for some reason John Doherty couldn’t be here this week so we got in everyone’s favourite Sega Addicts writer Sven Wohl to talk about bullshit! As always we’re joined by Josh Newey too, the bastard. In this accent friendly special we talk about Aliens Infestation, Sega art being hung in a gallery and much more.
So what are you literally waiting for?
The Smithsonian American Art Museum will be celebrating video games as art from March 16th to September 30th in 2012. They have polls open now so people can vote for the games they feel represent each category the most. Voting right now has been closed for technical difficulty and has been a total pain all day. However I hope you guys will do your part and vote.
Voting ends on April 7th so do your civic duty and vote for Sega! Hit the jump to see a list of all the Sega stuff. More >
Enjoy your excessively tall jpeg! This is the absolutely stunning box art for the Japanese release of Valkyria Chronicles 3, coming out January 27th next year. Interestingly it also has the physical number ’3′ similar to the Japanese release of Valkyria Chronicles 2, where as the international release of that game had the numeral ‘II’ instead. If you find that kind of thing interesting, that is.
Also announced slightly earlier than this reveal is that the Japanese playable demo will be released November 9th. This will be the demo that was announced at the Tokyo Game Show featuring two missions continuing on from the events of the demo that was actually playable during TGS (but was not publicly released). Expect some impressions once it hits, and please feel free to badger Sega into keeping the international box art as close to that above as possible because I really really like it.
I love any kind of case mod/custom art for any sort of console or arcade stick, but this one is particularly inspired. A wonderful aesthetic feature of the MK1 Mega drive (and Genesis) was the ring embossing around the cartridge slot, and what artist Paul Burke decided to do was recreate the artwork from the original Sonic The Hedgehog opening so that the winged medal design aligned with the ring on the console. Which is the SMARTEST IDEA EVER.
Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but I really do think that’s a stroke of genius. More images can be found on the artist’s flickr account, including some less Sega-related art, though equally as awesome if not more so. Fantastic work, Burke! Although I’m contractually obligated to conclude that you’re no Tom Kyzivat.
