Ehm, yeah. That's because they, you know, OWN IT. That happened when they BOUGHT IT FROM YOU.

Interplay is like a fucking cockroach. It just won't die.

Why are people mad at Interplay here? Bethesda agreed to something, has already gone to court and they sided with Interplay, now Bethesday is just throwing a lawsuit at the problem hoping Interplay will give in rather than fighting them in court.

Welcome to America. Also, Bethesda has given us FO3 and FO:NV. Interplay has given us... ehhhh... a funny Penny Arcade comic about a hobo in a box with a rat.

So, I dunno, I guess I'll side with the studio that actually makes great fucking games with the license, as opposed to the studio that does fuck all except whine about how all its rights are being violated.

Also, knowing how fucking inept Interplay is, it wouldn't surprise me if they're just trying to copy-pasta entire cities straight out of FO3 and NV into their MMO. And I can easily see the argument that they have no rights whatsoever to those parts of the IP.

If they're trying to use stuff from FO and FO2, they should be allowed to use that in their MMO.

Anyways, Bethesda is just trying to kill interplay so all this negative shit around the Fallout property vanishes. I mean, what are the odds that the Fallout MMO is going to be even slightly decent? A thousand to one? Interplay hasn't developed a single line of decent code since like 1998. How are they going to build a game that's not going to just shit all over the Fallout name?

So yeah, I know everyone here hates Bethesda since that's apparently the thing to do, but they can't wipe Interplay off the map quick enough for my tastes.

Creston

Totally agree.
