Zombie Cow Studios has announced an indirect sequel to Time Gentlemen, Please!, called Revenge of the Balloon-Headed Mexican.
The first episode has Dan and Ben solving puzzles like last time, and going up against an antagonist from south of the border who has a balloon for a head.
“Things are going to be a little different for the guys this time around, which’ll lead to some interesting new scenarios and puzzles,” said Zombie Cow’s Dan Marshall. “For example, Dan and Ben can now be split up, allowing the player to flip between the two as and when they choose. So we’ve got these two separate branches going on within the first episode – which makes it feel very different to the previous games.
“People will be able to jump straight into Revenge of the Balloon-Headed Mexican without worrying about what’s happened in previous installments. We’re shooting for these being truly episodic in size and scope – we’re looking at it being about the same sort of length as a TV show, depending on player skill.”

Kotaku’s reporting that Jack Thompson has finally, genuinely been disbarred. Or at least he will be 30 days from now.
A US court has approved a previous ruling made by Judge Dava Tunis that Thompson be permanently removed from the law professions, stating:
The Court approves the corrected referee’s report and John Bruce Thompson is permanently disbarred, effective thirty days from the date of this order so that respondent can close out his practice and protect the interests of existing clients. If respondent notifies the Court in writing that he is no longer practicing and does not need the thirty days to protect existing clients, this Court will enter an order making the permanent disbarment effective immediately. Respondent shall accept no new business from the date this order is filed.
So long, Jack. He’s already filed an emergency motion to try to stop all this happening, but, like, seriously. Dude. Go sit by the beach, or something.

A Florida court yesterday recommended that anti-game super-lawyer Jack Thompson be banned from practicing law for the next decade.
If upheld, the ruling will be Thompson won’t be able to perform any legal function whatsoever for ten years.
Thompson stormed out of the hearing, claiming the judge involved had no right to hear his case.
Judge Dava Tunis’ specific recommendations for sanctions will be included in her official report, to be due to the Florida Supreme Court by September 2.
There’s a huge report on this on Kotaku, including a full, 4,500-word objection Thompson filed with the court.
“I am ‘guilty’ of being right and ahead of the curve when it came to Howard Stern and as to Grand Theft Auto. Because I took on Bar complainant, Al Cardenas, the Howard Stern Show is off terrestrial radio and his influence diminished,” said the soon-to-be-not-lawyer.
“Because I took on this cop-killing, woman-bashing video game, the Presidential race is now addressing the issue and this particular video game. Try to get me disbarred. Go ahead, do your worst, Referee Tunis. I will continue to do my best.”
Jack, for Christ’s sake. Take the fucking hint.
