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
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
Running through this list of discounted Interplay titles on GOG.com, 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
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
Jordan and I are pushing further in our play of the tragically existent Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel. The mayor of Carbon, Texas is sending us down to the bottom of a crater where he swears the people we're looking for... read
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
[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 has followed Larian Studios to become the next company offering a "pay what you want" sale on GOG.com. If Larian's deals didn't get your attention, this most certainly shall. They've got an interesting little setup ... read
It may not be a holiday weekend but there's still plenty of great PC download deals to be had. Gamersgate has knocked 33% off the recently released PC version of Alan Wake (both the standard and collector's editions).
Happy Friday, folks! In case you missed it, The Destructoid Show went live earlier today, and in addition to giving out four codes for Waveform on Steam, we also covered a metric shit-ton of news that happened recently - som... read
At GDC 2012, Tim Cain provided insight into the development of his landmark game, Fallout, in one of the conference's popular Classic Game Postmortem sessions. As a huge Fallout fan, I couldn't miss the opportunity to learn n... read
Hey gang! Here's today's Destructoid Show news segment. We've got some decent stories today, and I have a new shirt! Also, Tara looks nice today and my mug is shaped like Boba Fett and there is Mountain Dew inside it!
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, 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
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
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
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
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
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
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 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
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
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
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
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
Hey, what's this Fallout Extreme business? An "xtreme" sports title featuring your favorite vault dwellers and mutants? Nah, it's a canceled first- and third-person tactical title that was in development for the Xbox in 2000!... read
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
It seems that the battle over Fallout is over... for now. A U.S. District Court judge has denied Bethesda's motion for a preliminary injunction against publisher Interplay. The ruling came down this week and was discovered by... read
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
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
