Deus Ex Screenshot Paints GWB in Unflattering Light

June 14, 2010 -

A recently-released screenshot from Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which is set in the year 2027, features a wanted poster for an ex-President.

An eagle-eyed Examiner columnist noticed a wanted poster for the 43rd President of the U.S.—and new Facebook member—George W. Bush in a batch of screenshots for the Eidos Montreal and Square Enix production. GW’s picture is plainly visible under the banner “Wanted for Mass Murder.”

The game is due out in 2011, so we’ll have to just wait and see if GW’s image remains in the finished product.

Considering some of the imagery of Obama that has been openely and proudly displayed in real life, not merely a computer game, I don't see any real reason to change this.

Hey look.  It's that guy who by comparison makes the Iraqi Minister of Information look downright honest.

Well, I always thought Bush and Cheney should have been tried and convicted for war crimes.  That's obviously not going to happen, but seeing a fictional depction of it is the next best thing.

Or we could wait to hear Secret Service to go to Eido and ask them to remove Bush from that list and from the game.

 It is a game about paranoia and conspiracy. With all sorts running amuck, that sort of poster is perfectly believable. Lets hope no one blows it out of proportion.

It's a nice thought, but remember, Fox News hit their big, red WHARGARBL button over sideboob. Do ANYTHING to defame their lord and savior, and they'll nuke you from orbit.

Exactly. It fits into the game quite well.

Well he did start a war based on lies which killed thousands of people.

You mean Dubbya did do that enough on his own?

Re: Deus Ex Screenshot Paints GWB in Unflattering Light

I see what you're trying to get at, but instead of arguing semantics and against talking points of political pundits, I'll simply say that others in his administration like Cheney will be dead by then most likely.

WonderkarpRegion locking annoys me. I cant tell you how many Japanese games I want to to play but need to own another console and learn japanese to play them!05/29/2015 - 5:13pm
MattsworknameThis kinda thing is why I have a very negitive view on things like region locking and games not being released universially. it creates problems like this where the game gets reduced as a result .05/29/2015 - 4:41pm
Andrew EisenNeither will the 3DS. Wait, WHAT?! http://www.siliconera.com/2015/05/28/samurai-warriors-chronicles-3-does-not-include-nintendo-costumes-in-the-west/05/29/2015 - 4:33pm
Andrew EisenSamurai Warriors Chronicles 3 will not include the Nintendo-themed costumes when it hits the Vita in NA and EU next month.05/29/2015 - 4:32pm
Wonderkarpthe brilliance of the Wii U is they could offer 2 games in 1 package. Tablet/pro controller controls, and then a flipped game with WiiMote. Add a master quest too it too05/29/2015 - 4:18pm
Andrew EisenTwilight Princess would be my favorite if it didn't have a few notable design issues. But yeah, those few things aside, it absolutely trumps Ocarina in most every way.05/29/2015 - 4:11pm
WonderkarpTwilight Princess is my favorite Zelda. Its a legit sequal to Ocarina, enhancing everything Ocarina had, and I hope there's a HD Remaster with gamecube controls. Make it Nintendur!05/29/2015 - 4:08pm
E. Zachary KnightI borrowed Wario World, Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess. So I am going to try to play at least one of them this weekend.05/29/2015 - 3:52pm
MattsworknameIm gonna be splittingmy time between blood borne, the witcher 3, tokiden, and some pc games.05/29/2015 - 3:34pm
DocMelonheadIn fact, if the whole campaign is to make fun of Zoe Quinn, Leigh Alexander, and Brianna Wu, then I'm not going to stop them.05/29/2015 - 2:30pm
