I’m Afraid I’m Not Familiar With That Term

Cooper Lawrence Talks Out Of Her AssAs a followup to yesterday’s video from Fox News slamming Mass Effect, I thought I’d mention EA’s response to Fox detailing the inaccuracies and blatant lies that were spread during the report.

Your headline above the televised story read: “New videogame shows full digital nudity and sex.”
Mass Effect does not include explicit or frontal nudity. Love scenes in non-interactive sequences include side and profile shots – a vantage frequently used in many prime-time television shows. It’s also worth noting that the game requires players to develop complex relationships before characters can become intimate and players can chose to avoid the love scenes altogether.

FNC voice-over reporter says: “You’ll see full digital nudity and the ability for players to engage in graphic sex.”
Fact: Sex scenes in Mass Effect are not graphic. These scenes are very similar to sex sequences frequently seen on network television in prime time.

…This isn’t a legal threat; it’s an appeal to your sense of fairness. We’re asking FNC to correct the record on Mass Effect.

Nice one EA, that’s definitely going to earn some respect over at Fox. I can see it now.

*Scene – Interior – Fox News Mailroom*

Fox News Rep: “Let’s see, right winger fan mail, left winger hate mail, bills, bills… WHOA! Heavens to BETSY! An inaccuracy in a Fox News report?!? Sweet Jesus in a birchbark canoe, we can’t mislead the public, this is serious business! I’d better file this in the urgent pile, right away!”
Fox News Rep: *puts letter in shredder*

EA might as well call the fucking Better Business Bureau while they’re wasting their breath.

Meanwhile, the Internets are taking a more direct approach and attacking Cooper Lawrence, the condescending bitch who kept running her mouth about a game she’d never played and quite obviously didn’t comprehend. Her book on Amazon is currently suffering a plague of 1-star reviews and scathing commentary. Amazon has apparently caught on to the gag, and is now eliminating the ability to give the book a 1-star rating. I’m guessing that they’ll attack her website or Myspace page next, provided no new pariahs decide to throw their hat into the ring. Lord knows the internets are a fickle bunch, and easily distracted.

Nice legs on that ill-informed twat though.

  1. Some of those comments on Amazon are pretty good….excerpt”It may be true that I haven’t actually read this book, but after watching her bash a really good game. I realized that people don’t need to actually play, read, or watch things to review them.”

    Well played, people….nicely done.
