The cover art is still disgusting.
There is disgusting (which i dont mind) and then there is disgusting to the point of sickening. I swear i would get nauseated looking at this art directly for more than 5 seconds.

Also, i do not have trypophobia, i can look at bee hives and lotus seeds just fine.

I don't find the cover art disgusting, but I also don't find it particularly appealing. I understand the intended symbolism behind it, but I also think that the game may have been better served with something simpler.

But then, I've always preferred a minimalist approach when it comes to cover art. I probably would have been happy with just having the XCOM emblem on the cover, and little else.

Reminds me of the Sedlec Ossuary.

This guy is over-defending Firaxis... Anyone want to take a guess why?
I dig the cover.

I look at some people and think the same thing, mate. The solution is avoid looking or imagine it as kittens.

Mmm, the only part on the cover art that is disturbing is that the alien doesnt have a mouth.

That too, but how does it consume energy. Does it lack other orifices? How does it work. Aaargh :D
