Jack Thompson on the warpath again

by spyder_s / August 16, 2006 2:44 PM PDT

ArsTechnica is reporting that Jack Thompson has demanded a copy of the new game "Bully" from Rockstar, or he'll sue.

Rockstar did not respond to his demands, so he's going ahead with his lawsuit.

Now, does this sound like blackmail or extortion to anyone else? Or is it just me?

I hope Rockstar countersue.

i honestly dont know why jack-o keeps up with his bullish tactics...its up to the parents to take some responsability and get involved with what their children are doing...NOT someone who is not fit for that role

my thoughts on the game
by udayan71 / August 16, 2006 9:36 PM PDT

I was worried at first about Bully but after visiting R* and seeing what the game really is, I am not so worried anymore. It is just a game about being a kid in school. R* as usual went for the controversial title and so people are hopping mad. It's foolish, that game is pretty much a copy of so many kids' school days.

Udayan.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
