PS2 CaseMod Made from Jack Thompson's Book

400°
253w ago - Recently Mattigus, a user on the Halflife2.Net forums has converted a library book (which evidently was never checked out) he bought used off Amazon into a functional PS2 console.

To quote: He's "almost positive" someone else has thought of it, but whatever, he's the only one providing pictures. Below you can see his Limited Edition Jack Thompson Out of Harm's Way PS2 plugged in, and running.

The cell phone is on the book because the cover won't close under its own weight.

And, who wants Jack staring lazerbeams through you for indulging in the violence of Marvel vs. Capcom 2?
 

Jack Thompson: Take-Two's Stock Woes Are an Act of God

300°
277w ago - When he's not leading a shareholder revolt, Jack Thompson is apparently a spokesman for God.

In a letter to Take Two's CEO Strauss Zelnick, the former attorney said that Take-Two's recent stock tumble is an act of God.

Thompson wrote: "As you will recall, when we met in New York for a couple of hours on May 15, 2007, I mentioned to you that unless Take-Two cleaned up its corporate act (stopped marketing and selling its Mature-rated games to minors), there would be a wicked price to pay.

Since then Take-Two's stock has gone from $26 to $7+ per share. I think God has put the world together in such a way that your company's wrongdoing has made this fiscal reckoning unavoidable. Scripture says so.

I have been your company's and its shareholders' best friend in all this since I appeared on 60 Minutes in the spring of 2005, but you chose to characterize me as your company's enemy, pledging to destroy me, and now the piper is being paid. God is not amused.

The harm you and your agents have done to me is predictable, as Jesus told his disciples: "The world hates you because it first hated me." I'll be fine, as God promises that "All things work to the good for those who love the Lord and are called according...
 

Jack Thompson is now Permanently Disbarred

291w ago - Is it finally game over for Florida lawyer and violent video game opponent Jack Thompson?

Judgment has been entered in the case that started last year and came to a head when Judge Dava Tunis recommended permanent disbarment for the bombastic, showboating law man. The court has approved the report and has ordered that Jack Thompson is officially disbarred as of 30 days from today.

To quote: The Court approves the corrected referee's report and John Bruce Thompson is permanently disbarred, effective thirty days from the date of this order so that respondent can close out his practice and protect the interests of existing clients.

If respondent notifies the Court in writing that he is no longer practicing and does not need the thirty days to protect existing clients, this Court will enter an order making the permanent disbarment effective immediately. Respondent shall accept no new business from the date this order is filed.

Note that Thompson still has a chance for a retrial, only due to court sanctions the motion must me submitted by a member of the Florida Bar in good standing, and I don't know that anyone wants to touch this one.

It's also worth noting that along with disbarment, Thompson has been ordered to reimburse the Florida Bar fees amounting...
 

GTA is safe from Jack Thompson for 10 years!

307w ago - The Florida Bar has called for infamous anti-games lawyer Jack Thompson to be disbarred and prohibited from applying to practice law for the next 10 years.

Judge Dava Tunis noted that the recommendations will be included in the official report to the Florida Supreme Court, due by September 2.

Thompson walked out of the courtroom after hearing the news, but not before filing a 4,500-word formal objection. Phoenix Wright, he ain't.

Thompson claimed that Tunis's first state loyalty oath was forged and the next two did not conform to the state regulations. Because of this, he's pushing for Tunis to be removed.

"I have fashioned a legal millstone that I will place around your neck and the neck of The Bar," he wrote. "Don't blame me, Referee Tunis, when you feel the water rising."

Senator Obama and Senator Clinton have also warned people of the danger of the Grand Theft Auto series, according to Thompson.

"Because I took on this cop-killing, woman-bashing video game, the Presidential race is now addressing the issue and this particular video game."

Strange, as we've been following the election and we've never seen Grand Theft Auto specifically discussed.
 

Jack Thompson hounds Rockstar boss'... MOTHER

100°
313w ago - Jack Thompson, the anti-GTA lawyer, has fumed at the production of the "murder simulator" GTA IV in a letter sent to the MUM of Rockstar boss Strauss Zelnick.

Thompson suggested that she should be "ashamed of herself" in the letter, which has been reported on in the Metro.

"The pornography and violence that your son traffics in is the kind of stuff that most mothers would be ashamed to see their son putting into the hands of other mothers' children," he ranted.

"Maybe you, Mrs Zelnick, were so taken by your handsome son that you spared the rod and spoiled the child. That would explain why he has brought you, by the way he presently acts, to shame."

He goes on to claim that experts hold GTA and Strauss' "entrepreneurial energy", in part, responsible for a "plethora of cop killings".

It gets better: "Your son, this very moment, is doing everything he possibly can to sell as many copies of GTA IV to teen boys. If you trained up Strauss to do this, then shame on you," he said.

We'd love to have been in Mrs Zelnick's 'How to Sell a Murder Simulator' classes.

"What you will see in your son's game," he added, "if this iteration is anything like its predecessors, is incredible interactive violence aimed at police offers (whom you can shoot in...
