The regualr edition really doesnt suck, look at it this way, most scenes where people think the most of MC is the ones you see his prime in, which are mostly scenes where he is running or doig something that gives him adrenaline. Therefore, by making a scene with him near the water kneeling down like he is giving up.
dood, you lured me in with your spite for ignorance but you gots some cools stuff on here! I know you didn't "draw" this, but you've got a good eye. This pic is way better than the real cover.
I like the ships in the reflection... it makes the battle look massive and hopelessly epic!
Nice imagery, if that's your image put on the cover then I have to say that is one fine piece of artwork. The reflection is beautiful, and you also get a small cut from the scene, as you can see in the reflection the many Phantoms overhead. Great job.
