Law of the Game's Mark Methenitis to Debate Jack Thompson

April 2, 2009 -

What are the odds of having two Jack Thompson debate stories in a single day?

That's how today, played out, though.

Just after GamePolitics posted about tonight's Thompson-Gerard Jones debate, Law of the Game blogger - and practicing attorney - Mark Methenitis e-mailed to say that he will be debating Thompson at SGC 09 on July 4th. Mark believes that he is the first attorney to debate Thompson on video game issues.

The Screw Attack website adds that there will be more just the Thompson-Methenitis ten-rounder:

In addition to the debate, Thompson will also participate in a special pre-screened question and answer panel where attendees will have the opportunity to pick the brain of one of gaming’s most notorious critics.

I still remembered how he backed out of the debate with Tom Buscaglia, citing what he interpreted as some insulting remarks he made.

 Hopefully they won't call him a "Lawyer" and give him the proper title of Disbarred lawyer, or disgraced lawyer, or hell, just plain Jack Thomson, that name is an insult on it's own.

Re: Law of the Game's Mark Methenitis to Debate Jack Thompson

No matter how many debates this guy is in, he has already lost the real debate in court.

He'll back out of it for whaever reason...

Re: Law of the Game's Mark Methenitis to Debate Jack ...

Didn't Thompson already debate attorney Sheila Tuma on video game issues? And lose?

I'm still waiting to see if Soulja Bitch will accept the challenge by the ScrewAttack guys at SGC.

When Jack Thompson runs his mouth, does anyone really care what he has to say anymore?

Re: Law of the Game's Mark Methenitis to Debate Jack ...

pre-screened by whom?

 

BTW, Dennis, it's not "Screw Attack" it's "ScrewAttack" (no space).

Re: Law of the Game's Mark Methenitis to Debate Jack Thompson

 

I wouldn’t be surprised if Jack finds a way to Welch out on this one. One thing we know about Jack is he never goes up against an opponent who is just as, if not more qualified to speak on legal matters as he is. I still remembered how he backed out of the debate with Tom Buscaglia, citing what he interpreted as some insulting remarks he made. And we all know how he backed out  of the PAX appearance as well. And even if it was over concerns over his safety, remember he was the one who shot his mouth off about the whole thing in the first place.
 
If he does deign to show up, though and he submits to the Q&A, I wouldn’t expect much in the way of enlightening answers from him. You know it’s going to be a variation of one of the following three answers. He’ll either…
 
  1. Cite brain scan studies and make continuous references to various school shooting including Paducha, Columbine, Erfurt, V-Tech, etc. (And probably bring up his 60 Minutes appearance for good measure).
 
  1. Say how all his actions have been motivated by his religious faith.
 
  1. Say, “I’m not going to tell you.”

Re: Law of the Game's Mark Methenitis to Debate Jack Thompson

The proper response to "I'm not going to tell you" is, "Well, will you tell the audience then?  They're the ones deciding if you're full of **** or not, so you ought to throw them a bone."

Re: Law of the Game's Mark Methenitis to Debate Jack Thompson

Heh heh... Jack... Brain...

Funny stuff, man.

Bet Jack'll cancel this if he loses tonight's debate. As long as no idiots try to pull anything today, that may be the case.

Matthew Wilsonit is a video talking about why certain games/products/consoles do well, and others do not. he back it up with solid research.04/18/2014 - 3:56pm
Andrew EisenI'm not keen on blind links. What is it?04/18/2014 - 3:45pm

MaskedPixelanteNumber 3: Night Dive was brought to the attention of the public by a massive game recovery, and yet most of their released catalogue consists of games that other people did the hard work of getting re-released.04/17/2014 - 8:46pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 2: If Humongous Entertainment wanted their stuff on Steam, why didn't they talk to their parent company, which does have a number of games published on Steam?04/17/2014 - 8:45pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 1: When Night Dive spent the better part of a year teasing the return of true classics, having their big content dump be edutainment is kind of a kick in the stomach.04/17/2014 - 8:44pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.giantbomb.com/articles/jeff-gerstmann-heads-to-new-york-takes-questions/1100-4900/ He talks about the future games press and the games industry. It is worth your time even though it is a bit long, and stay for the QA. There are some good QA04/17/2014 - 5:28pm
IanCErm so they shouldn't sell edutainment at all? Why?04/17/2014 - 4:42pm
MaskedPixelanteNot that linkable, go onto Steam and there's stuff like Pajama Sam on the front-page, courtesy of Night Dive.04/17/2014 - 4:13pm
Andrew EisenOkay, again, please, please, PLEASE get in a habit of linking to whatever you're talking about.04/17/2014 - 4:05pm
MaskedPixelanteAnother round of Night Dive teasing and promising turns out to be stupid edutainment games. Thanks for wasting all our time, guys. See you never.04/17/2014 - 3:44pm
Matthew WilsonAgain the consequences were not only foreseeable, but very likely. anyone who understood supply demand curvs knew that was going to happen. SF has been a econ/trade hub for the last hundred years.04/17/2014 - 2:45pm
Andrew EisenMixedPixelante - Would you like to expand on that?04/17/2014 - 2:43pm
MaskedPixelanteWell, I am officially done with Night Dive Studios. Unless they can bring something worthwhile back, I'm never buying another game from them.04/17/2014 - 2:29pm
