LOL, it would be interesting to see them discover the wonder that is The Witcher. They think Mass Effect is bad (sex wise), they'll probably have a field day with this one.

Whereas Mass Effect requires you to establish some sort of meaningful relationship with the female before sex, Witcher requires Garolt to be horny enough. :P

But I love the Witcher, so they should stay the hell away from that game.

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.
ROFL

SUPREME OWNAGE lol

Cooper Lawrence got a taste of her own medecine. Serves her right!!
After seing the fox news clip linked in the other thread I was amazed by her total ignorance. I knew people was bad and judgemental but oh man ...

Mass Effect was last years best game IMO. Got me totally hooked for many many hours, completing the game 5 times each clocked at 30+ hours. It's very rare that I complete a game more then once within such a small time frame. Last time i spent this much time in a game was Oblivion, but that spanned over a very long time, now Im totally bored with it so i have not finished the expantion pack yet.

After ive upgraded, Ill be enjoying The Witcher

As one Amazon user put it: “I know all about this book but have never fully read it. Why? Due to the overwhelming backlash, I have no choice but to agree with the 1 star ratings. The rumors are rampant that this book was poorly written and poorly researched. So without verifying the contents myself — I give it a 1 star. Good thing video games aren’t judged in this manner — whew!!!”
Poetic justice is a beautiful thing.

I played and completed both the Witcher and Mass Effect and consider them both "A" quality titles. If I had to pick one that I liked better than I would say the Witcher by a slight edge. I am sorry for going off topic but it was brought up in this thread.
