Fox News “borrows” BioShock Infinite logo


At the risk of turning this post into an Old Spice commercial, look at the logo below, then back to the one above. Then look back to the one below:

Do they look a bit similar? BioShock series creator Ken Levine thought so, posting about the uncanny resemblance on his Facebook page. He also dropped this gem into the comments section of that same post:

This is what happens when people don’t understand irony. And typesetting.

As the A.V. Club pointed out, the irony is indeed thick, given that BioShock Infinite revolves around rising up against an oppressive right-wing government (in a floating city!), while Fox News generally perceives liberalism to be the force that would give rise to that kind of evil.

Ah well, you know what they say about imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, right Mr. Levine? It’s certainly one of the funnier gaming-related stories, especially coming right before July 4th weekend.
