    If you read the comment reply on the reviews you'll see:
    Dr. Carole was misrepresented on her views on video game violence. I hope you understand that it was the publication that chose to represent Dr. Carole's views in this light, and that the statement was taken out of context. Her books also do not condemn the use of video games.

    It is clear, however, that this statement has unintentionally caused readers some deep emotional turmoil and we would like to rectify the situation.

    Please contact carole.lieberman.md@gmail.com with your address and contact information, and we will be in touch
    to clear up any misunderstandings that may have been caused. It is important that we create a dialogue regarding this.

    Sincerely,

    The Team at Dr. Carole Lieberman

    Bioware did it with the PC version of Bring Down The Sky for Mass Effect 1.

    http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Bri...The_Sky#Trivia

    A small shack on a hill (near the fusion torch in the center of the map) is home to X57 Radio, a small pirate radio station run by the X57 engineers. The computers mention a disagreement with the project director who wanted to shut the station down, because the music caused young engineers to "riot and sleep with aliens". When the director was asked if he'd actually heard the music, he said that he'd heard about it from someone else who'd heard something about what the station played.

    It'd be nice to have something a little less subtle for Gears. Like a newspaper article going on about the issue of mischievous feral animals on Sera. "Do your part, eliminate a feral Fox today". Probably a dumb example, but a writer I am not.

    if she is saying she was misquoted, then that makes her the second source in the article that was misquoted. At least Fox News is consistent in doing a poor job of reporting.

    Lol, no she wasn't. She's just as ignorant and pigheaded about video games as her statements made her look.

    Normally, I wouldn't write about a video game, but this is a special case. Fox News published an article about it's thoughts on the latest game from EA, BulletStorm. Even as a religious Fox News watcher who worships Shepard Smith and would do just about anything to be in the same room with all the Fox News girls for an hour, I'm extremely disgusted with this review.

    Bulletstorm, in my humble opinion, has all the right stuff - rewards for hitting private areas ("such as the buttocks"...GASP! says Fox News), exploding body parts, and sexually explicit homonyms for "skillful" game play (multikill = gang bang).

    Epic/EA should threaten Fox news with a lawsuit over their dodgy reporting. Fox would have to back down and apologise for such ridiculous claims and it would be great advertisement for the game.

    Also some tongue in cheek adverts taking the mick out of the Fox story possibly in the form of a "studio news reports" parody would boost sales and be quite funny!

    Ha ha ha I just now read this thread. Ah, Fox News. You guys are so silly.

    I'm sure I'll want to shoot out a man's butthole now that I've seen it in action in a video game.

    Fox News goes on a anti-video games rampage when they can't find anything better to ramble about. They did the same thing with Mass Effect 1 back then "sexbox?". Just like Jack Thompson, ignore them.

    I grew up on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original) and The Exorcist and turned out fine. I blame soccer moms in mini vans who have nothing better to do than complain about things for violence by minors Listen to them complain about things for 1 minute, or drive near them, and you will find yourself reaching for a gun, machete, or chainsaw.

    Watching porn, jacking off while playing Bulletstorm is what I call an adrenaline rush. I don't know what Fox News was thinking when they went on that rant.

    Yeah... Considering this is coming from Fox "News" , I don't think anyone could have given Bulletstorm a better endorsement.

    I preordered my copy weeks ago, but the possibility of me wanting to rape people even MORE than usual just sweetens the deal.

    This all reminds me of when the movie The Terminator came out*.

    My mother had read that it was the most violent movie ever, or whatever they were saying, and so she forbade me to see it.

    I had never even heard of the movie... but it sure sounded interesting.



    *I was a fourteen in October of '84, and the movie was rated R, so I'm not sure what she was worried about.

    3rd level on those hover bikes-> my father trained me on donkey kong country until I was good enough to play with him, but until that point he used the second controller with his foot. He needed me for the Rat race level, cause that rodent would run too fast. We did beat that level, killed the peculiar looking fox which I remember holding a gun, and I figured out on the second last level to put the stick into the wall so you weren't blow away by the fish. The queen was defeated by me, all lives and health used up. It was a glorious day, 3 years of snes platforming to go back and challenge the original nintendo and beat the hardest game I've ever played. Not including the extremely glitchy Wizard of Oz (bonus puzzle glitched, couldn't get to final level until password was hacked by trial and error)and Star Wars Dark Forces (f***ing random door code on level 13 or whatever, changed everytime level was loaded/character died).

    Uh, say wut? How is this a bad thing? How is playing a video game dangerous? I mean, after playing UT for years I do not feel the need to hunt down and a group of Skaarj.

    I think the author of the story needs to calm down and get his skillshot on.

    What say you?
    If Fox News says a game is "bad", you know damn well it's gonna be a great game. They don't realize what a great service they are doing for marketing the game. I honestly can't think of a higher recommendation.

    The hype from this article is going to make this game bigger than it was going to be. So I must say Im pretty jacked to see the outcome.

    All you people make one big mistake
    You imply that Fox thinks befor they make an article...
    Fox works like this :
    Whats in the news?
    O someone got raped
    Did we do the "Movies lead to rape article yet? Dammit yes
    Did we do the "Pornos lead to rape article yet?" F*ck yes...
    Did we do something about a video game? Yea about sex simulators
    But who cares no one that blames video games for violence knows anything about it...
    So
    Lets do it with bulletstorm, it has the right material we can make an article of
    "take 2 or 3 completely messed up Scientists who play with legos and porn toys all day and make an article with a writer from the Playboy magazine"

    AND FINISHED IS THE FOX NEWS ARTICLE
    easy wasn't it?

    I am looking forward to titles like
    "Homefront is going to lead China to attack America"
    "Dead Space 2 is leading Kids to believe in the marcer!"
    "How Dead Rising 2 makes all weelchair drivers to murders"
    and
    "493023 Deaths by Chainsaws since Gears of War 3 Came out"

    God Bless Fox news and then kick them in the Face
