Having watched 6 or so episodes of the new show they're calling x-play, I officially called the show dead. It's clear that Comcast decided they knew what was best, and stopped the last TechTV show from doing what it does ever so well. I knew it was dead after they gave a raving preview about how amazing a Dragonball Z game was going to be and then made a weak joke about Vegeta being angry. Where's the pessimistic criticism that I've loved since the days of Gamespot TV?

For two brief minutes, they let him free, and oh how he entertained.

Nice job, Adam. Next step is to get Fox shut down so these lies can stop. Their biased and unresearched claims need to stop.

Fox News just corrected themselves on this issue about 15 min. ago. It was quick, basically they had a quote from the lady who wrote the book. The lady apologized for saying what she said about the game. Orginally when she made the incorrect statement about the game she was acting on hearsay from other people. After seeing the game she said it is no worse than sex seens on TV shows like "Lost".

I loved the game and have absolutely no problem with it. The thing that I found completely ridiculous is you spend basically the entire game killing humans, aliens, and whatever else, yet the media attacks the 'love scene' aspect of it. What are we coming to as a human race?

Youve just highlighted a major problem with Media/News TV using the Internet as there sources. Basically don't believe everything you see on TV just like on the Internet. Always get your news from multiple sources and if something sounds to good to be true, it's probably a load of ****.
