What happened to Fallout dev's cancelled Mad Max game?

Oh, to think what could have been!
May 19
If Mad Max: Fury Road had been released twenty years ago, the accompanying video game - currently in development by Avalanche Studios and scheduled for release this coming September - might've been created by Fallout develope... read

Haha, really? Interplay is bringing back ClayFighter

Remaster coming to PC next year
Mar 02
Mere days ago, I hoped out loud that 2015 would become the year of clay for videogames, and now there's an announcement for a remaster of ClayFighter. Shame it won't be out until 2016. Interplay and Drip Drop Games (who?) are... read

Half-price sale
Oct 04
Running through this list of discounted Interplay titles on, all I see is dollar signs and my bank account draining. Thankfully, I've played a fair number of these before and can resist the urge to rebuy. The games th... read

The classic space combat sim is back with its original publisher
Jun 07
In this week's episode of The Question, I talked about how much I'd like to see a new Freespace game; now we've gotten an update as to who owns the Freespace IP. Coincidence? Almost certainly. Polygon has discovered that the ... read

To the depths and back in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel

The Couch Campaign continues!

Conrad and Jordan's Couch Campaign continues
Jordan and I have started a new game in our Couch Campaign, and it's one that I have been excited to play since we first began talking about the project. As a huge fan of the Fallout franchise and a lover of top-down, exploration shoot-em-up games, the pairing of the two could have been glorious. And Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel is, provided you think train wrecks can be glorious. read feature

Behold, the first Mario game voiced by Charles Martinet

No, it wasn't Super Mario 64
Apr 20
[Update: And I've just been informed that Mario was voiced in Mario Teaches Typing, which predates even Hotel Mario. The original 1991 DOS version used a different actor, but a 1995 CD-ROM re-release replaced him with Martin... read

Interplay's Fallout MMO is done as Bethesda wins battle

Jan 09
The long, bitter legal battle between Bethesda and Interplay has finally resolved today, with Bethesda emerging the victor. Interplay officially has no claim to the Fallout IP, and its plans to create a Fallout MMO are now th... read

MDK2 is getting some HD love on PC

Aug 13
MDK2, one of BioWare's lesser known titles, recently got a WiiWare port which is great if you have a Wii, not so much for the rest of us. Good news is that some BioWare vets (now with Overhaul Games) are reworking the old tit... read

GOG's Interplay sale will make your wallet cry

Good Old Games is having a 50% off sale for all the 32 Interplay games in their library. Each game is now only $2.99 until July 4th, and you can buy all of them for $95.68 although the only benefit of that not clicking 32 tim... read

MDK2 ready for WiiWare on May 9

Apr 18
Here's something you might have totally forgotten. Last year, we mentioned that BioWare-developed cult classic MDK2 was receiving a WiiWare port. It was admittedly a strange announcement; as with most outlandish WiiWare news,... read

Interplay: Bethesda's Fallout MMO lawsuit is absurd

Jan 10
If you've not been following the long Bethesda vs. Interplay struggle, take my advice -- don't. It's utterly stupid and depressing, and the latest chapter takes it to a whole new realm of stupid. Bethesda has claimed that it ... read

Hurry up and buy Planescape: Torment on Good Old Games

Sep 28
I have to say that I was mildly miffed when Good Old Games pulled its weird little PR stunt last week, pretending they were dying and then showing up in wizard robes going "Fooled you! We were just coming out of beta! You loo... read

Fallout Online viral advertising moves to religion

Sep 18
We've seen neither hide nor hair of the actual Fallout Online game save for a few screens that arose from the court battle between Interplay and Bethesda, but we have seen the start of some viral campaigns for the game. And n... read

Fallout Online starts the viral marketing

Jul 04
With the legal troubles behind them it seems that Interplay is back in action and actually working on Fallout Online, or they're just sending out teasers  and launching that website with beta sign ups during E3 to get... read

MDK2 coming to Wii and PC

Jun 27
MDK2 is quite the game. It's a little weird, but a total blast to play with some really creative level design for its three playable characters. Or so I'm told. I've never actually dug into it because I have a fear of charact... read

Earthworm Jim HD is quadrupling the groovyness

Jun 01
I love me some Earthworm Jim, but the prospect of yet another re-release of the original game, even in sparkly high-definition, left me wanting. I want new Jim, not old Jim that I've played a thousand times before. Then I wa... read

Apr 22
In a maneuver which is bound to surprise some people, Bethesda has decided to no longer pursue an appeal in their case against Interplay over claimed breaches of contract in regards to licensing the Fallout franchise. The app... read

Descent is headed to WiiWare

Apr 15
That image brings back a lot of memories. It's probably from Descent II and not the original game, but I'll be damned if I could tell the difference by this point. And it wouldn't matter, as both titles utterly devoured ... read

Interplay vs. Bethesda stuff is going to take a while

Feb 28
Thank goodness for the American court system. If there's an issue it will take care of it no matter how long it takes. Or maybe it's the other way around and they'll make an issue take longer than it ever should because of th... read

Details on canceled Fallout Extreme emerge from vault

Interplay's maybe-sorta-Fallout MMO enters beta in 2012

Jan 25
It might not be a Fallout massively multiplayer online title, but maybe Interplay's upcoming Project: V13 (in codename only) will fill a post-apocalyptic void nicely. According to Interplay's Chariman and Chief Executive Offi... read

Court stops Bethesda from blocking Interplay Fallout

Dec 12

Rumor: check out these Fallout Online screens

Nov 14
If you are going to be skeptical about one thing for the rest of the year I'd suggest it is these screens. They're from a Polish site which claims to have gotten its hands on the paperwork from the whole Bethesda vs. Interpla... read

Interplay releases some concept art for the Fallout MMO

Nov 02
If there’s one good thing about all this legal mumbo jumbo between Bethesda and Interplay regarding the Fallout MMO, it’s that we now get to see what Interplay is actually doing with the property. Recently, Interp... read
