Bethesda/Interplay Lawsuit Settled, Nothing Specific Released

It’s funny how some banners look better in your mind before you put them on paper. Good news everyone!

Interplay Circling The Drain: Project V13 In Jeopardy

Fallout Online, or Project V13, or the Fallout MMO, or “that MMO that is never being released” as it is known in my parts of the neighborhood.

What Happened This Week: 4/24-4/30 Edition

Welcome to the second episode of Week In Review (or whatever I’m calling it this week), your look at some stories that didn’t make MMO Fallout headlines for one reason or another. 1.

Interplay To Bethesda: No, You’re Absurd!

Back in April I happily announced that the Interplay Vs Bethesda lawsuit was over, after an investor reported to Joystiq that Bethesda had dropped their suit.

Project V13 Beta! In 2012…

I have good news and bad news. The good news is that Project V13, the fabled Fallout MMO and namesake for this blog, is trucking along and will be hitting beta soon. The bad news is that by soon, I mean soon in Valve Time, and it may be likely that the beta will trigger […]

Bethesda/Zenimax: What Is Going On Over There?

Zenimax Media is just one of the Area 51’s of the MMO world. Zenimax owns Bethesda, id Software, and several other studios. The studio has since become the MMO branch of Bethesda, and according to past rumors has been working on an upcoming title since at least 2007. Rumors had it that the MMO was […]
