We’re not really a news blog, we like to leave the story-breaking to those more in the know than us, but this bit of information brought a smile to our faces. The full story comes to us via Gamasutra, get all the facts there.
We especially love the bit in Jack Thompsopn’s responding press release when he starts talking about himself in the third person.
“With enemies this foolish, Thompson needs only the loyal friends he has. Thompson always wanted to own a Bar. Now, armed with multiple US Supreme Court rulings that no state bar can do what it has done to Thompson, he is set to own that Bar.”
We couldn’t have written something so priceless if someone had been paying us, or beating us with sticks. We fancy that Penny Arcade are going to pick this one up sharpish, so keep an eye on their site. Those guys have long acted as nemeses to Thompson’s activities, and Tycho has earned himself the right to have a bit of a crow about this one.
Meanwhile we think there’s something in Thompson’s language that suggests his next career move.
“If the Bar defies Thompson, Thompson will see them … AT WRESTLEMANIA.”
We can but dream.
