Free Fallout & More on GameTap

GameTap announces an expansion of their distribution deal with Interplay that will bring Fallout, Descent, and MDK to the free-to-play area of their game portal:

ATLANTA – June 2, 2008 – GameTap, the first-of-its-kind broadband entertainment network from Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (TBS, Inc.), announced today an expanded partnership with Interplay Entertainment Corp. (OTC BB: IPLY) that now includes multi-year worldwide rights for the company’s titles to be available for digital download in its online store and for subscription play. Under the new agreement, Interplay titles will also be made available for free play on GameTap’s ad-supported website www.gametap.com.

“Interplay has been and continues to be a great partner of GameTap,” said Ricardo Sanchez, vice president of content and creative director for GameTap. “By expanding on our previous deal, GameTap will now feature more of Interplay’s top titles including their widely successful Fallout titles.”

As part of this expansive agreement, GameTap will now feature additional Interplay titles, including the critically acclaimed Fallout, Descent and MDK. New and previously featured titles, such as the Earthworm Jim series, will be added to the subscription service, GameTap’s ad-supported website, and also sold in GameTap’s online digital retail storefront.

Apparently some of the games aren't patched to the latest version, but they're mostly older games I think. Unfortunately, they don't guarantee that games will be there for a certain length of time. There was a "cull" a while back where they removed several RPGs (such as Baldur's Gate) and Freespace 2, among others. I joined right before this, so it was weird to see those games there one day and gone the next. It's a decent service if you look at it as a subscription. I'm not sure how anyone would come close to having enough time to play even a fraction of all the games available though.

Oh, and as for Fallout... I recently installed Fallout 2 on WinXP and didn't have any problems.
