    WOW this complete horse sh*t..i am honestly gettin tired of these corporate, non game playing liberals. Some people are just so quick to judge wat they are jealous of or for wat they dont understand. I mean first the dont want us to grow up then they rush us to. Take for example "yuppies", there damn kids that are like 5 yrs old speak better and proper english then anything, and force them to make choices that a 5 yr old shouldnt make....now ur gonna tell me those same people are gonna cuz a rukus cuz of a damn video game?? I think we as gamers need to STEP UP and let our voices be heard..cuz like in that fox new video it says gamers cant tell a game from real life cuz we havent expieranced it...well sh*t we as gamers have expieranced more then the average american and our minds are more broad as well. and the proof to that is right here on wiichat.com....just have a convo with anyone here and u will find that our maturity surpass wat people reall think of us.

    man, anchor people are so ****ing stupid. i really hated the part where the guy from spike said that "you dont have to choose to have sex" and the woman said "but what do you think they'll choose?" and im like "omg shes ****ing stupid!" because it just depends on what u do in the game, you dont get an option to have sex whenever you want. they are ****ing dumb.

    Thanks idjut for the sig.

    Here's some updated info on the situation...
    Self help author Cooper Lawrence, along with Fox News came under heavy fire from gamers last week when they mindlessly branded Mass Effect as pornography. While Fox News hasn't come forth with an apology, Lawrence has admitted her mistakes in an interview with the New York Times yesterday after angry gaming fans trashed her book on Amazon.

    ...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."

    While I don't think situations like this will ever change the way Fox News handles its sensationalist stories, perhaps it will send a message to the so called "experts" they bring on the show to do their research before going on air. As vehemently protective as gamers are of their genre, it will only end up coming back to bite these allegedly knowledgeable people in the ass. Hell hath no fury like a gamer scorned.

    I think this Cooper woman should play the game before ranting about it. She's the type of woman who relys on research and statistics for support rather than a hands-on experience.

    I'm with Geoff from Spike TV on this one.

    Who isn't with Geoff. That's why I like what Adam said at the end of the video, "Although I haven't read your book, it sucks."

    Even Jack Thompson himself is against Fox...
    Believe it or not Jack Thompson and I email sorta regularly. Granted he usually emails me bizarre, over-the-top press releases (which I often don't post) and I respond with disjointed quotes from movies, which I hope will one day remove that last wobbly hinge of his. (No luck yet).

    Last week Jack emailed me a press release entitled "Grand Theft Auto IV to Be Released April 29; Culture War Begins Now" and after my typical poking, I got on to the topic of the Mass Effect controversy and was shocked, literally out of my socks, to find him defending the game... sort of. Apparently, even anti-gaming crusader Jack Thompson found self-help author Cooper Lawrence (who he refers to as a man), uninformed and the entire controversy contrived. Hellooooo kettle.

    Wow, as usual you're grasping the real news here.

    To: Jack
    From: Brian
    I'm surprised you haven't been looking into Mass Effect.

    To: Brian
    From: Jack
    Why would you be surprised. I don't see any problem with it. The guy who shot his mouth off about it had no idea what the Hell he was talking about.

    To: Jack
    From: Brian
    You mean you're OK with mass effect?

    To: Brian
    From: Jack
    Of course. This contrived controversy is absolutely ridiculous. Report that, why don't you?

    Consider it reported. Now where did my socks go?
