Lawl @ Jack Thompson!

After finishing Sam and Max: Season 1, Adventure gamers can get their fix of comedy and violence adventuring by following jack Thompson's latest legal brawl against Halo 3 and Microsoft's Army of Lawyers.

After being forced not to harass Take-Two over their GTA and Manhunt series, Thompson turned his attention to a bigger fish.

In an email addressed to Bill Gates directly, Jack Thompson actually said:
"Heres the deal, Mr. Gates: Either Microsoft undertakes dramatic, real steps, through its marketing, wholesale, and retail operations to assure that Halo 3 is not sold, via the Internet and in stores, directly to anyone under 17, or I shall proceed to make sure that Microsoft is held to that standard by appropriate legal means. I have done that before successfully as to Best Buy, and I shall do so again as to Microsoft and all retailers of Halo 3."

So, Thompson is basically asking Microsoft as a game developer to monitor and regulate Halo 3 retailers. But it doesn't stop there. To ensure hilariousness, Thompson admitted that Halo 3 did NOT receive a Mature rating yet, but " the Beta version that was released last week shows us all just how violent the game is and how inappropriate it is for play by anyone under 17, as the "Mature" rating it will surely receive indicates".

Jack Thompson's history is full of failed lawsuits against games (to the point that a judge called his behavior "inappropriate by a member of the bar, unprofessional and contemptible"), while Microsoft's legal team is nicknamed "Microsoft's Army of Darkness".
I Lol @ Jack!

Welllll that was nice knowing him, Bill Gates can afford more lawyers than he can his failed self. He's going to become Gate's butler after this is all over with.
