Hoo boy. I had to do a double-take this morning as I caught up with all the video game news coming out of E3. I was scrolling through a photo gallery of limited / deluxe editions of games that publishers have revealed when I got to the Dishonored 2 Collectors Edition, which comes with a poster that looks shockingly familiar. I don't think it's any stretch to say that whoever designed this poster lifted the composition, pose, and high contrast look straight from Jacob Bannon's cover art for Converge's classic album Jane Doe. Yeah, 99% of video games are either derivative or straight-up sequels. But apprently even the artists are out of original ideas.
