In this video right here (http://kotaku.com/347350/keighley-sets-mass-effect-record-straight-or-tries-to)

Fox bashes mass effect with such out right false information its not even funny. They have never played the game yet they try to show how terrible it is for children and the "full graphic nudity" when they didnt even see it themselves

also what pisses me off is that they cut off the Geoff Keighley, who tries to explain how false they are but they cut him off basically without him being able to say much while the panel then starts bashing it again. Im pissed right now http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

even Jack Thompson thought it was bull****! HERE!!! (http://kotaku.com/349423/jack-thompson-defends-mass-effect)

oh yeah. hell has officially frozen over

Just looking to find an answer to all our problems, videogames.

That was a great porn scene though in the game for me to watch. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

The woman debating with Geoff actually apologized later on because of her lies.

I like Fox News, but I gotta say that the "expert" was an idiot.

As soon as that got on the air, that womens book started getting spammed big time on amazon.

Also theres a video of Adam Sessler totally bashing the whole thing... Ill see if i can find it.

Yeah I know, Im trying to find a working one.

Its on the G4 Website, but there is no way to link directly to it... So give me a couple minutes.

Edit: Ok so here is a round about way to get to it.

First Go here to the index (http://www.g4tv.com/xplay/videos/index.html)

Then in the keyword box search Fox News. Open the thing and enjoy.

Stupid copyright ****, else it would be on youtube.

Usually I am a Fox News watcher like 24/7 but I agree that woman was an idiot. I mean to say that it's only the young kids, not their dads playing games is rediculous. Jason Alaska, RRM, WK and Vth_F_Smith are examples of men who may not be Dads, but are all clearly adult who play games. I thought her reaction when asked if she had every played Mass Effect was rather snooty too.

And why is it that when these issues come up people always forget the responsibility of the retailers in this process? People always focus on the publishers who make the content, and the parents who are supposed to be watching what the kids are doing...but if the retailers are doing thier job every single person who tries to buy a M or AO game is being carded. I don't care if they are 55.

Also, the black lady said the kids are going to want to play dads video games, well if "dad" brings a game with adult content into the house then it is Dads responsibility to make sure he puts it away or locks it up somehow. Dad bought the game so Dad has to deal with it. My sister and brother in law have games that are rated M and they keep them in the top of the closet when they aren't being played. A parent taking initative in the raising of their kids. What a concept!

Matt Stone and Trey Parker say in an episode of South Park that parents get so offended by the content of TV/movies/video games because parents "rely on it as a baby sitting and the sole educator of their kids," and I totally agree with that. The sooner parents stop pointing the finger the sooner they can start dealing with their own kids...instead of the publishers who are protected by the first amendment. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Like Jackie said, I love Fox News in general, but I odn't exactly agree with this segment.

Not any skin off my back though, I could really care less what they think. The game is amazing, let it speak for itself. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Bummer. Due to this hotels weird connection, I can't watch the video on a java script popup. Anyone else know where it can be found?

Not lies, just heavily opinionated and biased stories that are taken WAY out of context.

Mass Effect does have a sex scene.

But 30 seconds of alien side boob doesnt count as full on nudity with sexual intercourse.

They just explode things to fit there own schemes. They invited Geoffe Keighley onto the show, gave him a say, but not enough airtime to properly conduct a arguement.
