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.

Asmodai:
I've been playing fallout2 happily on my XP system. It also installed fine from retail cds.

Make sure to check out the fo2 restoration mod:
http://www.nma-fallout.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=40590
This guy spent years adding stuff back in that the devs didn't have time to finish but left pieces in (like you can finally rescue sulik's sister from the slavers).

Or if you prefer the 100% original experiance, he also has a giant patch fix that fixes HUNDREDS of bugs with the original FO2 that the devs never patches.

The mod comes with a d3d wrapper that lets you play in pretty much any resolution, as well as some other neat things.

I've run FO2 fine with the mod, and fine vanilla official patched install from retail cds on windows XP SP2, so not sure what probs you are having...
