Mass Effect Mea Culpa

111mass190.jpg


Yesterday, we had a video from Fox News about the game Mass Effect, which they portrayed as pornographic. Gamers turned the tables on Cooper Lawrence, who lambasted the game on the network without having played it. The Amazon page for her latest book was flooded with negative reviews from people who hadn’t read it, according to a story Scaramouch linked to the video.

But she has seen the light! And the game.

In an interview on Friday, Ms. Lawrence said that since the controversy over her remarks erupted she had watched someone play the game for about two and a half hours. “I recognize that I misspoke,” she said. “I really regret saying that, and now that I’ve seen the game and seen the sex scenes it’s kind of a joke.

“Before the show I had asked somebody about what they had heard, and they had said it’s like pornography,” she added. “But it’s not like pornography. I’ve seen episodes of ‘Lost’ that are more sexually explicit.”

But don’t expect Fox to air that part.

Why was anyone surprised by ignorance from Fox news shits? It's a propaganda network operated by the most stupid, obnoxious, ignorant, self righteous and just plain wrong people ever to work in media. The kind of people who contribute nothing to the world but bullshit. A whole company of assholes who should be locked in a deep dark hole and left for dead.

Funny how they didn't even bother to bring in their own Matt Slagle who, on their own web site, calls "Mass Effect" one of the best sci-fi games ever (3 1/2 stars out of 4)...so on the web site they recommend buying the game, but on the TV station they recommend against buying it. Way to play it both ways, FoxNews...
