EA vs Fox: G4's Adam Sessler Weighs in and Amazon Book Reviews

G4 host Adama Sessler gives his opinion on the whole Fox News/Mass Effect imbroglio in this clip from a recent episode of X-Play. He presents the facts with much more aplomb and fairness than Fox did, but in the end turns the tables to give the network and author Cooper Lawrence a taste of their own medicine.

The Amazon.com reviews of Cooper's book are pretty funny too ;) Her new book she tried to promote with her 'stunt' on FOX news received 21 1-star reviews so far (there were more some time ago, but Amazon took down most of them).

Thank you Adam for putting this self righteous woman back in her place. She uses the negative aspect in a video game to help promote her book and I for one am glad to see her burnt for it. It was funny to look at amazon 39% of the people that looked at the page where you could buy her book bought it, 20% went to buy no more heroes and 17% went on to buy a 12month live gold card, but having never read her book I will assure everyone out there that Adam is right and it absolutely blows. I personally can't wait for her next book even though she hasn't made it yet I'm sure it will suck too.

Wow, Adam Sessler showed some balls there. Seriously, you can see his balls hanging out at 1:37.

I have to give Adam props for that one. There's nothing like the power of well-placed sarcasm when you're feeding someone their own bullshit.

That was funny. I saw the original clip just now and I can't believe what they were saying. They talked like it was a porno, then vented about how video games are too violent and have too much sexual content.
