Jack Thompson -- bringing crazy back!

Last April Take-Two Interactive and Jack Thompson settled Take-Two v. Jack Thompson with an agreement that states, more or less, that Thompson will forever leave Take-Two alone. In return Take-Two dropped all suits against Thompson.

Recently, Thompson decided that the Manhunt 2 debacle breached the settlement, allowing crazy to return to the video game battlefield.

GamePolitics.com has the latest e-mail exchange between Thompson and Gena Feist, Take-Two's VP and Associate General Counsel (although they come from Thompson and are a bit sketchy with the timestamps and possible missing e-mails), showing that the settlement has, indeed, fallen to pieces.

I'll start you off with the first e-mail, but go to GamePolitics for the ever-entertaining follow-ups.

Dear Mr. Zelnick and Mr. Feder:

Congratulations on receiving a “Mature” rating for Manhunt 2. You’ll live to regret it (trust me), so enjoy it while you can.

I want to bring to your attention the fact that at www.rockstargames.com anyone of any age can order Manhunt 2 and receive it, with no age verification whatsoever. Asking a 14-year-old if he’s 17 is not age verification, now is it?

You also know that the use of a bank card as an age verifier is a violation of all bank card agreements, right?

Govern yourselves accordingly, if you can.

Regards, Jack Thompson
