REVIEWS LittleBigPlanet 3 Review
Developed mostly by Sumo Digital, this is the first LBP main numbered title to be developed outside of parent studio Media Molecule's hands. Without a guiding hand on the tiller, does it sink or swim?

The open world of Far Cry 4 is wondrous, but is the beauty of Kyrat only skin-deep?

So I promised that list and here it is.  It's late and it's not as thorough as I'd hoped.  I also wish I had images handy to illustrate every point where helpful.  So, in no particular order - a subjective set of desired features for Fallout 4: Things to...

DAILY MANIFESTO

He's Not Dead, But He's Coughing Up Blood

Posted on Thursday, September 25 @ 13:05:41 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
Jack Thompson is permanently disbarred, and an era comes to a close. I'm being honest here, I'm truly sad to see him go.

According to the ruling, he's got 30 days to close out his practice, refer his clients elsewhere, and take down his shingle.

Oh yeah, and he owes the court $43,675. Damn. He's going to have to sell off some of those leather outfits.

He's already filed for an injunction (read delay) on the 30 day limit with the federal court. But even a cursory reading of the facts makes it seem unlikely to me that they'll grant one. In the meanwhile, he's also filed with the Feds accusing the Florida Bar, the Florida Supreme Court, and all seven judges on that court, with civil rights violations.

I think it's 100% pure bluster, and as far as the Florida courts are concerned, Thompson is no longer allowed to file directly and must have consul do it for him. Violating that one could land him in jail for contempt.

But oh, what good bluster it is. Jack has announced his own disbarment in one of his famous open letters claiming that the "fun" is about to begin. With a nod to video game lingo, he also states that he "always wanted to own a Bar". Unfortunately, he did not spell it with a "p".

Sorry Jack, the District Courts get to pick and choose their cases, and even a cursory look at this one would be enough to convince a judge that the last person they want to deal with is you.  The fun does not begin here.

But we have had fun over the years. I don't know what I'm going to do without Jack Thompson. Who are all us nerds going to demonize now? Who else can we get to rage against an emerging art form and get everyone's blood boiling?

He made my job so much easier. And ironicly, I believe he actually helped the cause of video games and freedom of speech because he was such a demonstrably crazed lunatic speaking on behalf of censorship.

So long, Jack. For what it's worth, I hope you win. You will be missed.
