A couple of days ago I posted the story, Activist Gamers are Massively Effective. It covered the reaction of the gamer community to the beat up by Fox News on Mass Effect. Fox managed to find an author who hadn’t played Mass Effect but had heard bad things about it, and got her to denounce the game publicly.
This had the effect of annoyed gamers heading to Amazon and voting her latest book all the way down. Ah, much fun and hilarity ensued. The author, Cooper Lawrence, then retracted her Fox News statements, saying that now she had seen the game, and any sex in it was no big deal.
Why the recap?
Ten Ton Hammer have linked to a web site called Loading Ready Run. These guys spend their spare time making videos, and have just released their own commentary on their site in the form of video satire. The video is called Max Effect, and it’s well worth watching.
