It's back from the dead...
« on: October 02, 2008, 09:10:02 pm »
Now, if you have been keeping up on gaming history I'm all sure you know about Interplay, one of the giants from the golden age of gaming and makers of both the Fallout and Baldur's Gate Franchises. It was once a giant publisher, making some great games and giving us many good times. I'm also sure you know that that company collapsed financially just after it's first CEO, Brian Fargo, left, with a Fallout 3 in the works at the time. For a while the company seamed to be dead, with the current CEO, Herve Caen, selling out almost all of Interplay's franchise rights to other game companies (like when they sold the Fallout Franchise to Bethesda Softworks) and disbanding almost all of it's game production capacities. For a time it seamed like this giant was dead... until I found this and this just tonight.

That is right people... INTERPLAY LIVES!!!!!!11!!1

...and they have a Fallout MMORPG in the mix!!! YAHOOOO!!!! :D ;D :D ;D :D

Their return is fairly recent but old news. Hardly anyone here payed attention.

But the new site is newsworthy. Now that they're reestablished I hope to see more of what they're doing with Earthworm Jim.

But more importantly I want to see them re-release all the Descent games with updated graphics.

I agree another EWJ would be good, preferably one better than the N64 era EWJ 3D.

Could go very good or very bad. I'm pretty cynical about these modern remakes of old games.

I would LOVE Baldurs Gate 2 with the Mass Effect engine please.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Would be cool if they started making Fallout 3 aswell but with a some what different name just to mess with Besheda ^^

Nah, Fallout 3 will probably be good and live up to some of the expectations people have, even though it's being made by a diffrent company ^^

But hey haven't the Zelda,mario and FF games had different makers ever since the first games? :P
