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.

Zenemulator...it's not just a slap job that makes "some" work..they do it for each which is why they work so well. I would rather have the quality over just a slap job.07/30/2014 - 5:48pm
ZenMatthew there is a difference between "worked" and "accurate". You play the Nintendo VC titles they play as damn close to the original as possible. The PSP would just run them as best they could, issues and all. And Masked...EACH VC title has their own07/30/2014 - 5:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOnce again, the 3DS already HAS a GBA emulator, it just can't run at the same time as the 3DS OS.07/30/2014 - 4:54pm
Matthew Wilsonyou cant street pass in ds mode ether, and if moders can make a gba emulator that runs very well on the psp as I understand it. you are telling me that Nintendo devs are not as good as moders?07/30/2014 - 4:49pm
Zenperformance. Halo 1 and 2 worked great because they actually did custom work on each of them...just like Nintendo does now lol07/30/2014 - 4:08pm
Zenexisting hardware while the GBA has to be emulated completely. Same reason the 360 couldn't run most Original Xbox games correctly, or had issues because they just did "blanket approach" for their emulation which led to game killing bugs or horrible07/30/2014 - 4:07pm
ZenSora/Matthew: It's not just Miiverse, but the whole idea of streetpass and things like that would be affected if the OS is not running. And just because a 3DS game can be downloaded and run does not mean that GBA can as easily. Those 3DS games use the07/30/2014 - 4:06pm

Sora-ChanSo it's just a matter of having better emulation software. If it can be done with a 3DS game, with all the memory and what not it takes up, it can be done with a GBA title through emulation.07/29/2014 - 7:30pm
Sora-ChanOther VC titles for the NES and Gameboy had the same setup where you couldn't access the homescreen without quitting out of the game til a later update when those games were released for the public outside of the founder program.07/29/2014 - 7:28pm
Sora-Chanthe 3DS can, and does, run GBA games, as seen by the founder gifts, which included a number of GBA titles. As for running GBA games and still having access to the home screen, I beleive it's more of the game emulation software needs to be updated.07/29/2014 - 7:27pm
Matthew Wilsonthe 3ds already swaps os's with the original ds. plus I dont think people expect miverse interaction when playing a gba game.07/29/2014 - 6:06pm
