More Amusement in the Land of Sexmolutions
Posted by deckard47 on January 23, 2008
I needed something to amuse me today, and here we go. By way of Joystiq, I discovered that Fox News has an exciting, cutting edge report on Mass Effect, and how it desensitizes our young men (and only them, cause they are the only gamerz) to sex and violence. It features two talking heads who have never played the game, and snort scornfully when asked if they have done so (you know, for research or accuracy, or something). Sadly for our valiant reporters, the third person is someone who knows a lot about Mass Effect, Geoff Keighley, and I’d say there is enough of a smack-down delivered here to make me feel slightly less disgusted. Excellent. then again, they go on to say how hard it is to be a parent, to check what your child is doing. Even if we ignore the 360’s content control (which borders on the stunningly controlling, if you ask me), parents could, you know, look at what they buy their hideous spawn. It is a possibility.
