Can we phone in and ask why when Fox news kicked off over Mass Effect the ECA just stood there with its pants around its ankles and said nothing and it was only when the fans did something that anything happened? Can he justify why people should continue to pay fees to an organisation that's done basically nothing about the largest controvercies to hit gaming in a long time and the general lack of correct reporting from major news outlets?

Just wondering.

Hey Luscan,

I think you might be mixing up the ESA and the ECA in their reactions to this story.  The ECA did in fact stand up against FOX News by doing a press release, media interviews and calling on Fox to retract the story.
GamePolitics even covered the ECA's reaction here, http://www.gamepolitics.com/2008/01/28/ecas-hal-halpin-calls-on-fox-news....

Um... You are thinking of the ESA. Hal Halpin Runs the ECA. Entertainment Software Association vs Entertainment Consumer Association.

You could have if you didn't ask for permission here and actually went out and called them.  They gave out their number multiple times.

Wonderkarpbleh. the more I play WWE 2k15 on PS4, the more I get disappointed.11/23/2014 - 4:09pm
Neo_DrKefkaIt happened around 1030 this morning. I was not blooding because blood was on my hands11/23/2014 - 3:50pm
Andrew EisenThat depends on a lot. Were you bleeding at the time you requested to leave or did you want to leave work to go to the doctor over an incident that happened on a different day that you didn't file an incident report for?11/23/2014 - 3:21pm
Neo_DrKefkaThat would be a major OSHA violation correct?11/23/2014 - 1:54pm
Neo_DrKefkaOff topic but I was at work and went over to the first aid kit to get some eye drops. I look at my hand and noticed blood on my hands. My employers said their is no incident report and they won't send me to see a doctor and that I am abandoning my job.11/23/2014 - 1:54pm
MaskedPixelanteThe more I hear about AC Unity being rushed out, the more I think Ubisoft was telling the truth about why they couldn't add female co-op models.11/23/2014 - 1:14pm
IanCI wouldnt say the 360/PS3 version were superior. They were different games.11/23/2014 - 11:49am
MechaTama31It's hard to rank my top 5 against eachother, but they would include Ghostbusters, Back to the Future (all of it), Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Shawshank Redemption, and The Princess Bride.11/23/2014 - 11:09am
Andrew EisenTrue, but I liked the fact that rather than do a crappy looking version of the PS3/360 version, it went with an art style more suited to the Wii's strengths.11/23/2014 - 12:26am
