Default Interplay - Bethsoft Suit Settled?

January 4th, 2012, 22:56
Duck and Cover reports the long-running suit between Bethsoft and Interplay over FOOL rights has been settled - at least according to an unnamed source who apparently attended the court. According to the article, details are expected later this month.
More information.

Kind of hoping this results in there being no Interplay Fallout MMO. From Interplay:

Fallout 3 was a little bit too serious - that's definitely not where we're going. Our Fallout MMOG will be extremely funny.
Almost sounds like they're trying more to make a Borderlands MMO with the Fallout name.

Doesn't sound like something I'd be interested in playing, even if it was a single-player game.

Humor definitely has a place in Fallout, but I'm not looking for an "extremely funny" post-apocalyptic setting.

Same here. If they go that way i will be going the other way, as in not buying anything from them.

Urg. I liked Fallout Tactics but the attempted "humor" in it was just grating.

And come to think of it some of the humor in Fallout 2 was urg-ful too. Like when you meet the ultimate bad guy for the first time, they gun down a family in front of you, and then wander off chatting about "Let's do lunch!" "Yes, let's!"

Ah I had forgotten about that. Yeah that does seem like something a power-rangers villain would do doesn't it?
