Mass Effect on Fox News

Wow. I finally got a chance to watch the 6-minute video of the Mass Effect roundtable on Fox News, and all I can say is that Fox News should be sued for false advertising over having "News" as part of their name.

Other than Geoff Keighley, the entire panel is completely clueless when it comes to Mass Effect, or even video games in general. I think it is lousy that the one person who actually knew what the heck he was talking about wasn't allowed to address the manner in which Mass Effect was completely misrepresented.

OMG! I WISH Burnout Paradise had a Halo 3-like Saved Film Feature!

Ok, so here's the scene: I'm playing Burnout Paradise and encounter a Marked Man event. I know my car's WAY too wrecked to possibly survive it, so I head to the nearest Auto Repair Drive Thru. The closest one I know about is halfway across town, as I haven't found them all yet. I head off in that direction and just happen to run across another one on the way, so I pull through and start to turn around to head back to the Marked Man event. At JUST that exact moment, along comes an AI driver in a Nakamura SI-7, and before I even realize he is there, I T-bone him in the middle of the highway and take him out, for my very FIRST Shut-Down! This is why EVERY game needs a saved film feature like Halo 3. I would LOVE to put this experience on YouTube, but it is gone forever - lost to the ether. Oh well... C'est la vie, right?

Edit: Had to correct myself... It's MARKED Man, not Wanted Man.
