[Venture Beat] Interplay loses rights to Fallout intellectual property in lawsuit settlement - Page 2

post #11 of 47
meh, taking the IP from the original creators is scummy. I don't like any of Bethesda's games outside of Oblivion

They didn't take it.

They lost it, quite different.

^THIS. Best game ever.

Although I agree that Interplay lost this fair and square, the prospect of Interplay returning to the PC gaming arena was quite fun sounding.

QQ more, what we need is developers to come up with new IP's instead of rehashing and milking the same ones into the ground. I'm talking to you EA.

Interplay, due to their own incompetence going public, is the only one to blame here. They would have sold the rights to Fallout to anybody when things got bad.

Agree.

Disagree.

Fallout and Fallout 2 were quite popular in their day, and as far as many are concerned, better games than Fallout 3/NV.

What big PC media sites consider "Game of Year" is about as relevant as the Oscars.

Many of the original creators haven't had anything to do with Interplay for quite some time.

Oblivion was a good game, the fallout mod they made for it was pretty good too, especially since the lore Interplay created for that universe was so strong.

Like i said very plainly in my first post, i understand they defaulted on their contract agreement, but if you look close you'll see the expectations of them were a bit ridiculous in the first place. 30 million is a lot of money to ask a small studio to raise in two years, etc.


Interplay is a good developer and they deserve a bit of recognition IMO, selling the fallout ip was their only option in the face of bankruptcy, times were hard, do your research. They didn't just whore it out because they wanted new shoes.

Giving them a contract extension or something was the least bethesda couldve done do show some respect, but instead they'll just continue to be greedy arrogant douches and sue people like notch for making games that use words in their game titles that are slightly similar to theirs.

If the contract is so "ridiculous" then why did Interplay sign it in the first place? The terms were the terms.

Do my research? Really? You basically just said the same thing I did in my first post.

What is it with you kids were you dislike a certain company because of their success? The Fallout MMO could be a success. Let's give Interplay more and more time when someone else could have had almost ready for release now. If the situation were reversed and Interplay was the successful one, they wouldn't give Bethesda a break either. And if you thin they would, I'll have some of what you're smoking.

Interplay agreed to the terms in the first place, not sure how they (Bethesda) are "greedy arrogant douches." It's like taking a loan out and not being able to pay it back, the place you took the loan from doesn't care, you agreed to their terms after all.
