3D Realms is digging up Kingpin for PC and consoles

There's something oddly fun about seeing a decades-old video game you never played resurface out of nowhere with an unlikely remaster. Kingpin: Life of Crime – a controversial Quake II-era FPS from Xatrix and Interplay – is com...

The original Fallout is free right now on Steam

Just in time for Fallout's 20th anniversary, the game is free to own on Steam. It's not necessarily the easiest game to get into if you're coming in completely fresh, but it's without a doubt worth having in your library. You never know! On...

Stranger Things and Game of Thrones get the SNES treatment

I'll be the first to admit it, this story's a little strange. I'm pretty sure we've never posted anything from HalloweenCostumes.com before. Movies and TV shows tend not to have full console releases anymore, as the tie-in games we see toda...

Interplay is selling off Earthworm Jim, Freespace, and more

When I think of Interplay, I think of the Earthworm Jim series, but that isn't a thought I've had in a long while. There just isn't much happening there unless you're simply rebuying the original games, and the same could be said of most of...

Be sure to grab Giants: Citizen Kabuto for free on GOG.com

GOG.com is ending its Big Winter Sale with a free game. And it's a rather good one, at that! For the remainder of the site-wide sale, Giants: Citizen Kabuto is free to claim and keep. This game is part third-person action, part real-time st...

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

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 developer Interplay. Un...

Haha, really? Interplay is bringing back ClayFighter

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 promising "the...

Own Interplay's entire GOG.com library for $125

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 themselves are ha...

 
 
Interplay gets Freespace photo

Interplay now owns the Freespace IP

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 intellectual pr...

To the depths and back in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel

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 have gone to, ...

Watch the worst Fallout game ever made

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 shoo...

Behold, the first Mario game voiced by Charles Martinet

[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 Martinet. However, I'...

GDC: The original Fallout was coded in two weeks' time

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 new nuggets of i...

Interplay's Fallout MMO is done as Bethesda wins battle

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 through.  "U...

MDK2 is getting some HD love on PC

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 title for a HD re-...

MDK2 ready for WiiWare on May 9

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, I expected thi...

Interplay: Bethesda's Fallout MMO lawsuit is absurd

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 only allowed In...

Hurry up and buy Planescape: Torment on Good Old Games

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 looked silly, wail...

I didnt play much of Die by the Sword (Treyarch/Tantrum, 1998) and Skyward Sword (Nintendo, 2011) is a 3D Zelda game so Im not interested in it, but I am curious how the swordplay between the two compares and which one does it
