Deus Ex Screenshot Paints GWB in Unflattering Light

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.

    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.

     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.

    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.

    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.
