The Fallout mod that everybody thought sucked anyway has now finally died. Clearly upset by the superiority of Fan Made Fallout, several of the MR team members have jumped their sinking, rat-infested ship and joined with the FMF Project. Here's what Wild_Querty had to say about MR's long-expected demise:
Well since no progress has been made in a long time and no one is
posting on the nwsgames.net forums and the team leader disappeared MR
is basically dead, well actually everyone who is left agrees that’s it
