It's Obama vs. Romney in new Dungeon Defenders DLC

Not content with passing the one-million-download mark and celebrating Valentine's Day, the team behind Dungeon Defenders is unleashing more free DLC for the PC version of the game. This time, it's a political face-off between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Yes, you read that right, political candidates will fight it out in Etheria!

Released today, the "President's Day Battle Royale" DLC will feature skins for both Barack and Michelle Obama, Mitt Romney, and even George Washington. Players will get to battle in a presidential arena with the chance to unlock special pets and weapons -- and it's all free, for a limited time.

It's not like there's no precedent for politicians squaring off in videogames; NBA Jam: On Fire had the 2008 Democrats and Republicans fighting it out on the court. Maybe videogames can be the next venue for political disputes to be settled? How about the terms of Scottish independence be settled on the basis of a few games of Team Fortress 2? I imagine Alex Salmond plays a mean Demoman.
