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.

Baldur's Gate (or Baldur's Gate 2 for that matter) were never removed from the service. There were a number of titles that were though (some EA stuff like Ultima for example). The bitching was due to them just taking it away without telling the subscribers (which they say will not happen again).

It's a nice service and for only 10 bucks, I don't see how people don't see it as a bargin. Yea, you don't 'technically' own the game because once you stop subscribing to Gametap, there go the games but again for the price to play upwards of almost 1000 title spanning multiple platforms, I think it's a good deal. They've made alot of older titles work with Windows XP and some are just classics.

Deus Ex
Baldur's Gate 1 and 2
Icewind Dale 1 and 2
Planetscape Torment
Beyond Good and Evil
Civilization IV
Pirates
Alpha Centauri
Far Cry

It aint Steam, but I don't think that's what it's trying to be. It's a subscription service.
