("We Wish You a Merry Christmas" plays and ornaments numbered 1-25 are seen on a Christmas tree. A raspberry sound is heard and the cover to Shingen The Ruler appears on the 5 ornament, along with shit.)
Shingen The Ruler on NES. Here we have a decently rendered male face, which seems to dissappear into an image of an army riding on horses. It's as if a cloud of less detailed more generic art floated in front of them. Why would this be so important that it needs to intrude on a focal character? It's as if the background took a bite out of a side of his face! I believe it symbolizes that the conformity to a large society of socio-economic repression. It should noted that sometimes the art on the box is different than the art on the game cartridge. On the cartridge, he is obscured even more by the god damn instructions! Why is this ON THE CARTRIDGE?! Seems like somebody really hated that artwork and wanted to do everything they could to cover it up, or maybe they never seen a video game before! The instructions come WITH the game! You know, on paper! In a little booklet! You don't need it ON THE CARTRIDGE! Of course, this is not the full-detailed instructions, but they sure fit as much as they could! Just for a quick reference in case you playing the game and you either lost the intructions, or you find it easier to look at the cartridge while you're playing ..the cartridge. And this would only work in a Top Loader! If you have the original NES model, you wouldn't even see the fucking cartridge! Maybe it's meant to be read like some kind of art house poetry. (Nerd read the instruction on the cartridge) Yield, money, disaster, products. Yeah, this product was the disaster that you should yield before spending money! Shingen seems to be picking out from the cluttered mess of periodic table like frames of clinical information, as if to say, 'Hey, it's me, me! Look at me, look at me!' This is horseshit, I can't even pretend! Does this make you wanna play the game? Was it so complicated, they had to put the rules on the cover?! Is it because the game is called Shingen 'The Ruler?' They thought it must have the rules? I'm surprised they didn't put an image of a measuring ruler on it. Or we'll going to need to find the longest tape measure in existence? Because I didn't know THEY STACKED SHIT THIS HIGH!
