If FOX slams a game, then that actually makes me want to buy it.

Gotta say, so far they've recommended me some great games, including GTA and MassEffect.

Everyone that watches FOX is brainwashed and stupid? Fact?

Facts are facts dude I didnt make it up and the Fact is if you "BELIVE" what FauX new s says then you are an idiot.

Any publicity, is good publicity!

But one thing I hate is that they take advantage of it and then buckles under their pressure.
