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.

TechnogeekYet, you're going to be hard-pressed to find anyone other than insecure 2EDGY4U teenagers seeing it as anything other than an extremely fun game.05/25/2015 - 8:36pm
TechnogeekSplatoon's probably the best example at this point. Gameplay-wise, it's a team-based third-person shooter with a significant online component. It's rated E10.05/25/2015 - 8:36pm
TechnogeekThe silliest thing about most of the Nintendo hatred is that they may be the last company that interprets "family-friendly" as meaning "fun for more than just the really young kids".05/25/2015 - 8:33pm
ZippyDSMleeWell it could be worse, like skyrim out of the box, a shame DAI dose not have that level of editing...05/25/2015 - 5:58pm
Zenpretty well without getting "nasty". Many people are disappointed in the decision and the about face on the status of the games development.05/25/2015 - 4:22pm
ZenEvery market has horrible people...but being like this towards all of them in a group is not a way to garner support and can make people more hostile towards you. Ironically his response was to someone that wanted to state a disagreement, but worded it05/25/2015 - 4:22pm
Goth_SkunkAs demonstrated by Ian's remarks, that 'market of possible fans' is apparently negligible.05/25/2015 - 4:18pm
Zeninformation while other versions had everything talked about openly.05/25/2015 - 4:15pm
ZenYeah, I've read through it and wanted to make sure I had it quoted correctly. I get there are issues, but this is horribly unprofessional and just burning a market of possible fans..many of which supported them and were waiting while getting little to no05/25/2015 - 4:15pm
Goth_SkunkOh wow. That's not even misquoted, he actually said that. Though for additional context in previous pages, he truly does not think highly of Nintendo console owners, and claims that in the industry, he's not alone.05/25/2015 - 4:12pm
ZenI also took a screenshot of the statement in case it is taken down (via my Twitter): https://twitter.com/zenspath/status/60293960536562483205/25/2015 - 4:05pm

ZenProject Cars basically canceled for Wii U, Slightlymad Studios Head, Ian Bell, states "Yup, and if you need to pass this on, we really dislike Nintendo users" on Forum to Wii U players waiting for the game and disappointed in the news.05/25/2015 - 4:03pm

Goth_SkunkGranted, most of that feedback is going to be vicious, but if a novice dev knows full well not to expect their hastily strewn together game as the next Grand Theft Auto, such curmudgeonly feedback shouldn't deter them from their ultimate goal of becoming05/25/2015 - 3:45pm
Goth_SkunkAdditionally, Steam is a platform whereby these novice devs can showcase what they were able to put together and see what kind of feedback they can get from the community.05/25/2015 - 3:44pm
Goth_SkunkI don't think it's wrong for a novice dev to want to recover any losses from people willing to pay money for what they have produced, either. After all, every game dev had to start somewhere.05/25/2015 - 3:41pm
Goth_SkunkI disagree. I think that for novice developers, this tactic still at a fundamental level teaching someone the ins and outs of video game development.05/25/2015 - 3:41pm
