Ok, I don’t like linking to Kotaku too much, I’m worried some of the hideous sexist racist crazies that sometimes patrol their boards might somehow slide on over here, but this must be pointed out (plus I can’t find the original document). Apparently EA (who I normally hate, the way bad smelling dudes hate Starbucks) sent out a letter explaining to FOX News exactly how and why they fucked up with that little video I linked to recently. Good job EA, I know you just want Mass Effect sales to rock some more, but good for you for trying to protect Bioware, us consumers, and the brains of gullible parents everywhere.

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.

I have this dead horse, and I want to beat it. Check out Penny Arcade’s much more amusing take on Mr. McCullough’s lies. Oh, and over on the right I have some new pictures up. Two from Sins of a Solar Empire, which looks pretty, but I haven’t played it yet, so I am not exactly endorsing it. Second, we have cool pictures of Mass Effect. One is of a giant jellyfish, which I suspected from early screens would talk (and it does!), and the other is of pretty lights surround the traveling ship Normandy. Pretty, pretty, pretty.
