It seems that a lot of rumors are going around these days, whether it's Jack Thompson going to be in the game, or whether it's going to be Hillary, Rockstar always has a way of getting there jabs out there. I came across an article that states that Hillary just might be in the game. How will they disguise her you ask? As a prostitute of course! Check out part of this article below:

"However, without going into too much detail, the report goes on to say that players will be able to engage in sexual acts with the in-game version of Senator Clinton, after which the sated prostitute will ask: "Will you still vote for me?" And, in typical GTA style, should the player choose to murder the prostitute rather than issue payment for services rendered she will whimper: "Now I’ll never get to be president."

Presently, there is absolutely no proof to suggest that this supposed story is anything but a complete work of fiction - especially considering that the apparent source of the article has been conveniently misplaced.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that any such move by Rockstar Games has the words ‘impending lawsuit’ stamped all over it. With the studio already saddled with the Hot Coffee debacle and no-end of persistent controversy regarding its Manhunt franchise, mapping the likeness of a presidential candidate onto the faces of GTA’s prostitutes could be considered an act of suicidal proportions.

...

Please remember that this isn't fact, but merely a rumor right now, Rockstar has not confirmed this yet.

Should i.... make it any bigger?

I doubt you read the whole article, neonfire.

You know it could all be something that was posted on the net, in a certain context. Then taking out of that context and then posted elsewhere cause big reactions and the case to be blown out of proportion. Who ever posted this is an idiot. That kind of thing is something Jack Thompson would try to use as ammo against Rockstar and GTA IV.

Off the subjuct but, funny thing. Just as I was reading and typing this post, an interview with Hillary Clinton just came on ET TV. It was about Bill Clinton and his "infidelity", not about GTA IV, haha.

So before you freak out here, the name of the site where this is posted is Seriously News, which would make this "news item" a satirical piece in fact, a parody. Like what Jon Stewart does you know. It's good fun in any case, so give it a read. I especially liked this part, it has a sort of eerie sense of truth about it:

Clinton, who once cited the game as “the cause of World War II”, has long since been an advocate of censoring violent video games. When asked for her comment, she noted: “Being able to kill people in a virtual world is harmful to society. It’s why I spend all of my time in the Senate cleaning up video games instead of improving real life”.

The Rockstar team isn’t just stopping at looks; after intercourse with the hooker, the pseudo-Hilary asks “will you still vote for me?”. Upon being killed, she says with her last breath: “Now I’ll never get to be president!”.

Wow, talk about stuck up. I don't believe rumors are restricted from forum posts my good sir :).

Also, i is capitalized (thus, I) in the English language when placed singly.

Hard to say whether it is real or fake, it could affect there rating, but then again they've been doing inside jokes like this for years, so maybe not...

Jared. Don't go throwing shit around, saying i'm stuck up. The reason i made that text so large was for the benefit of neonfire, not the Original poster, not anybody else. Including you.

The way neonfire posted (and, for that matter, the original poster) seemed to be ignorant to the fact that it was a simple rumour. I took the time to read the full article, which wasn't actually too long, and, as far as i can tell, it was constructed to make you read all the way to the end, when it told you it was just a rumour. Anyway, enough about how well the article was written, quote the part of my post where i said that rumours were restricted.

Also, don't go around telling me to capitalize every singe 'I' in my posts, it's not the kind of thing i read through my post and correct every time, i'm far too lazy.

Also, in the possessive context, you should have used 'their' not 'there', as 'there' implies placement, not possession.

I hope it's just a rumor, Hillary Clinton would ruin sex for me. I VIVIDLY remember the first time she was in the

White House. :weird:

Before you younger members get too exited about her running for US president, consider the company she keeps.

Granted, it's a little before your time, but the short version is that the Clintons chose Algore (& his wife Tipper who started

the Senate hearings on pornography in rock) as a presidential running mate. These people are complete phonies who will

say anything to get elected. Building political career on bogus censorship = HUGE turn-off.

She's enough to make Niko consider priesthood.

Grampa will get off his soap box now, back to topic.

Whoa, making a sarcastic comment about Jack Thompson meant that I actually acknowledged this as the truth and not just a rumor? Give me a break.

I read the entire article. I read the part that said it was a rumor and I wasn't "ignorant to fact that it was a simple rumor".

Telling someone that they aren't using correct grammar after complaining about that person mentioning your capitalization is a little ironic too.

^ The way you posted made it seem like you didn't read the whole article. I interpreted your post in such a way that you suggested that Jack Thompson had put Hilary Clinton up to attemting to hinder the release of IV, or something to that effect. Note how i said 'The way noenfire posted seemed......'

The whole point of me correcting his grammar was irony. In effect, i was calling him a hipocrite for correcting my grammar, when infact his wasn't perfect.
