A new video game from publisher Capcom (Resident Evil, Street Fighter) has a very unusual enemy: cable news.
In DMC: Devil May Cry, the player has to do battle–literally–with the disembodied floating head of a pompous cable news host, who anchors a show on the “Raptor News Network.” After defeating the head, the player is sucked into the channel’s news coverage itself.
What channel is Raptor News Network supposed to be? “one particular American outlet that shall go unnamed,” the game’s producer says in the video.
