Scariest Pic You Will See Today (or all week)

Sent to us without explanation by the man himself...

The only clue is the subject line of the e-mail, which says, cryptically:
Evidence

UPDATE: Some GP readers have suggested that Miami Jack has a GTA IV "sting" announcement coming up. That's certainly a possibility.

It's either that or he has entered a Niko Bellic look-alike contest...

@Dave: Bah, you got in there just before me, but I think you're onto something there. Here's hoping we're wrong!

David Attenborough:

The wild Thompson holds it's prey captive using a primitive form of the human hand.

As one can see, the ravages of constant court battles and appeals have taken their toll on this once ravenous animal. The unshaven stubble indicates that this specific Thompson has had very little sleep in days. In addition, the floral pattern on the shirt of this Thompson seems to indicate that it is celebrating a victory of some sort.

Of course, wild Thompsons are known to celebrate prematurely, and in many instances will attempt to create a monument for even their slightest successes.

Evidence... of lost sanity?

Methinks he has finally given himself to the darkside and is using that box as proof. Maybe he beat up a teenager for the game?

@gordon

Yeah he does.

deep down he likes the game. He just doesn't wanna admit it.

Maybe the evidence in that photo is the Hawian shirt that signifies he is going to retire.

Because only old farts from Florida who get fired from their jobs due to incompetence wear tourist shirts......

Know what'd be great? If the game had the freezing problem some people say they are having
when he went to submit it as "evidence", therefore making it unplayable.

Someone should photoshop the cover of a gay porn over the GTA label, lol. That'll be right up ol' Jackie's alley.

He kind of reminds me of an old Tommy Vercetti.

....

Still waiting for him to be disbarred. *sigh*

Good job the police warn kids not to go play video games with unshaven strangers these days...

Oh he's definitely training for some sort of murderous rampage. That's the only thing that makes sense since he alone has categorized GTA as a murder simulator.

... or ever

OHHH DEEAR GOOOOD! *eyes melt, tongue suddenly blazes with fire, and my head explodes into a mass of bone chunks, brain matter, and blood*

What's supposed to be scary?

The horrible stubble he wears, as evidence that he's not really taking care of himself?

The tacky floral shirt?

Or just more evidence that Don Quixote is secretly Rockstar's biggest fan? He's probably spent more money on their games than anyone else in the country.

Jack's looking old...

I wonder if he knows he's contributing to R* by buying that...

All that is evidence of is Jack's failure. The series is up to the fourth iteration along with the PSP version and Vice City and Jack has failed to prevent any one of them from being released.

Congrats Jack, you win at losing.

Or wait, did he send his son to Best Buy to pick up Jack's pre-order, as evidence that BB is selling to minors? I'm betting it's the last one.

He probably had his son, who would now be at least 17 since he was 15 when Jack-o did his "San Andreas sting" during the Hot Coffee ordeal. He's going to claim that it was bought illegally by an underage person, who in reality has every legal right to buy it because the rating system isn't enforced by law and because they're old enough to buy it based on the established rating to begin with.

Great a new photo to tack to the dartboard.

@Thomas: Lol, really, but what is this evidence for? Evidence that Jack's a hypocrite since he did purchase a Rockstar game?

Sure Jack, BRING IT.

You're what, 0 for 5...6...10? I like those odds.

BTW, thanks for supporting Rockstar sales.

Evidence . . .

That he's been hit hard by the bar trial and his impending disbarment and now sits in a curtained room drinking stale beer and playing GTAIV, and that he will soon go on a kill crazy rampage in a public place with a shotgun.

Guess what the defense will be afterwards.

TEH GAMES MADE ME DO IT! I TOLD YOU SO!

The first word that came to my mind was 'Photoshop', his head looks too big for his body, and he looks like he was smoking his shirt last night...


Evidence, yeah... This does, of course, mean the Jack owns an XBox360...

Jack has an odd way of getting rid of his enemies... lets see, he buys their product... buys their stock... yells and screams about the controversy in a game that is built around creating controversy, thus giving them free advertising... Jack, you are your own worst enemy

Bah, you KNOW he's gonna fire up his 360, and go kill some hookers.

Well, at least we know that he bought the game. We're slightly closer to having these game critics play the games before going on their lunatic rants about the downfall of the civilization.


But, if I was a betting man, my guess would be that the photo "evidence" would be because he got his (or someone else's) kid to purchase the game from a major retailer with relatively little trouble. In which case, file under "Anecdotal Evidence"

Master Detective at work.

>Unfortunately, your warrant was for the arrest of Carmen Sandiego.

>The suspect has been released, and you will be demoted to Shameless Publicity Hound. Next time, be more careful, or you will permanently damage the reputation of the Acme Detective Agency.

That's not Jack Thompson at all...IT'S A MASK! Look at those cheeks!

Looks like a self-shot. Fresh from his MySpace, perhaps? :D

(And do people in sunnier climbs than mine *actually* wear shirts like that?)

/b

Wow, this guy really has an unheathy obsession with this doesn't he?

I'm guessing he has his son buy it and the whole 'Evidence' thing would be evidence that R* is marketing to minors...

which is complete and total bunk of course, but it is much easier to go after R* than it is Best Buy or Circuit city or whatever other retailer that sells M games to children.

You have to wonder where the outrage is with places that sell R rated movies to kids. I bet a 14 or 15 year old kid could get their hands on the Godfather (similar to GTA) or Eyes Wide Shut (with graphic sex) or the South Park Flick (language) or, worst of all of them IMO any of the Saw movies. Where is the outrage there Jacky?

My guess is his son managed to buy it without giving ID.

Didn't he sign an agreement not to harass Take Two with threats of legal action? I don't think he's gonna try to have the game declared a nuisance or anything on that front.

how is that evidence? is Jack too immature to purchase the Mature-ratedGTA IV? only if he used that angle would he actually have a case

岩「…I can see why Hasselbeck's worried about fake guns killing fake people. afterall, she's a fake journalist on a fake news channel」

Just a thought, we ought to ask for a larger version so we can have a Photoshop competition ;)

Evidence? I see that picture as evidence that there is no mental health or minimum IQ requirements to get GTA IV.

@beemoh
Not, really. Maybe tacky tourists perhaps?

@GoodRobotUs

That picture just SCREAMS "Oh exploitable", doesn't it?

Aww, I think it's kinda cute you guys! All the hate was just them not admitting their feelings, and now look at them, it's love!

Constant court losses and an impending disbarment have not done Jack wonders at all.

Nice shirt.

@GP can we get the full image? :P

That picture is going to be used for a lot of message board avatars...

Evidence. My first thought was to produce a list of stupid comments about what this is actually evidence of, but then I started to think about what this actually might be evidence of when taken in the Jack Thompson context.

Honestly though, I can't wait to see what he's up to this time. So far, all we have is evidence that he's acquired a copy of the game but I can't help the feeling that he's done it in some nefarious way.

My worst fear is that he's deliberately asked an underage kid to attempt to purchase it using Jack's own money to 'prove' that this game is being marketed to kids and can be sold to kids and, therefore, causes kids to commit crime.

I'm afraid not because he might have been successful, but that he might have done this at all. I hope I'm wrong, but it makes sense to me when I consider: What would Jack do?

MaskedPixelantePlus there's the whole "we don't use accounts" thing that means if you lose your 3DS and have to get a new one, you have to deal with Nintendo customer service to get your downloads back instead of, you know, logging in and downloading them.09/22/2014 - 8:39pm
MonteIndeed. Their wallet system, the lack of sales, applying tax, the lack of price cuts, the eshop is pretty terrible. Only use it for indie games.09/22/2014 - 8:29pm
Andrew EisenThat's the one I'm eyeballing. Really dug the demo. Didn't care as much for EOIV though.09/22/2014 - 8:19pm
MaskedPixelanteOoh, an Atlus sale, it must be a day that ends in "y". I'd much rather get physical 3DS games because of Nintendo's outdated digital distribution policies, but EOU is near impossible to find anywhere nowadays... conflicted.09/22/2014 - 7:48pm

E. Zachary KnightIt is stupid that they went with the "It would be too much work to add a woman assassin" defense rather than just being honest and admiting they didn't think about it until it was brought up.09/22/2014 - 6:06pm
E. Zachary KnightYeah, this is a different game and it is not out of the ordinary for them. THey did the same for the pirate one.09/22/2014 - 6:05pm
