Many of you have seen the idiotic newscast that fox posted about Mass Effect. Well this did not come without a backlash.
Gamers bombarded the guest host who made these lies in her recent book covering the subject.
By Friday afternoon 412 of the book’s 472 user reviews were the lowest possible rating, one star. Another 48 ratings were for two stars. Only 12 of the ratings were for three stars or higher. In addition, 929 Amazon users had tagged the book with the keyword “ignorant.” Tied for second place with 744 tags were “garbage” and “hypocrisy,” while “hack” and “hypocrite” tied for fourth place with 710 votes. Gamers have also attacked the book on the Barnes & Noble Web site.
In an admission of guilt and humiliation, the guest even issued an apology
In an interview on Friday, 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.-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.
I guess when gamers unite, we can do alot of damage http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/26/ar...& oref=slogin
ya the words "I'm sorry" never came from her mouth. Misspeaking and being sorry for it are two different things.
