Fallout 4 TMed

Bethesda Softworks has registered a trademark for Fallout 4 with the "Office for the Harmonization of the Internal Market." The filing can be viewed on this page showing it scientific instruments, fire-extinguishing apparatus, and a host of other things, including computer software. This related on The Vault, where they note that Bethesda made a similar filing for Fallout; New Vegas approximately four months before officially announcing that installment in the post-apocalyptic RPG series. Thanks No Mutants Allowed.

Out of the Blue

As a James Bond fan I'm very pleased with the news from yesterday that the ugly battle over the Thunderball rights is at an end. The greatest thing they could do with Daniel Craig as Bond is to redo the On Her Majesty's Secret Service and You Only Live Twice stories in line with the original books, which could only happen with the rights to use the Blofeld character restored, which they now are. I'm optimistic this may be the plan since they've been moving along without him for so long, it would seem the only reason to finally settle this now would be to bring him back. Too bad Donald Pleasance is dead.
