[ Company -> Update ] - More info on Company: GamesOnLine | More info on Company: Interplay

Interplay may very well now have TWO websites. In addition to the resurrection of Interplay.com that we had reported on earlier, it appears that Interplay is creating a webpage for their "online service" entitled GamesOnLine. There isn't anything on the website yet, just an "Under Construction" graphic, but it still could signify a possible Interplay resurgence. I could be wrong, but it's pretty slow in the news department.


UPDATE
: Thanks to the illustrious Spazmo, we can now confirm that this website is in fact registered to Interplay.

It's very old school. Right down to the old logo and the "Comic Sans MS" font.

I don't think anything at interplay has been up to date for quite awhile now.

Is there anyway to infact verify that this is linked to Interplay? Gamesonline isn't exactly a hard name to come up with.

Not sure...which is why I put the disclaimer in the newspost. If anyone knows how to look up the registrant, please share the info.

http://n3dst4.com/network/domainwhois?domain=gamesonline.com

Which also reveals another domain, www.iply.com. Seems like a mirror of www.interplay.com though.

Code:
<html>
<index><title>Games Online</title></head>
<body>
  <div align="center">
    <img src="img/fancy.gif">
  </div>
</body></html>

At least this time they didn't need 4 pages of html code to produce one picture.

Games Online. I wonder how long it took for Herve to come up with such original, catchy and innovative name. It's yet more fun watching them fail again.

Nope. I check the Interplay website -let's say out of a bad habit smile - every single day and found it all by myself. If I would indeed have spotted it on here you guys would have gotten full credit. I do not even check DaC or NMA personally because I'm not a fan of your focus (never been a Fallout fan) and I know that my teammate Dhruin has you guys covered well enough so I don't have to stop by here smile . Was made aware of this post by a reader of your site who suggested we should give credit where credit is due but I've really found it on my own (*puts one hand on bible and other on grave of grandmother and says* ... "I swear" smile ).

Well, and maybe next time we could deal with this via e-mail or PM (since I'm now registered here) and not make an (untrue) accusation in a public place.

Cheers,

Yeah, let's stone the sucker to death... oh wait... icon_doh

OK... *gulp*... to clarify on that "not a Fallout fan" bit, it does not mean that I dislike the games smile . Just played them too late when they were released as part of a games bundle and -despite the generally great gameplay- I never really got into them because of the post-apo setting. Just a simple matter of taste thing. I uninstalled the Freedom Force vs Third Reich preview copy we got after about 30 seconds into the game (if that) because spandex and superheroes just don't float my boat icon_wink .

Both, the Fallout series and FF series got raving reviews though so I can totally accept if other people love these games. I didn't mean to come across as a Fallout basher. I'm far from that. Good games, no doubt, but just not my cup of tea.

Damn bitch, you must have balls on you
Posting your shit, like you have a right to
Fallout, game of the year '97, demand respect
Nuclear war, that's a real fucked-up concept
Let me tell you something, son, open your peepers
Don't be shakin' like that, I know you got jitters
Notorious D-A-C, our rap is well-deserved, bitches
Fallout Uber Alles is our creed, we keep makin' pitches
Release Fallout sequel, sign the petition, we're like leeches
Can't shake us off, better hide in the ditches
Ban brothers from forums, close discussions
But, son, fucking with D-A-C has reprecussions
Interplay, Bethesda, learned the lesson
We're like thugs in your crib with Smith and Wesson
Everyone here is a mad fucker, insane killa
No fear of death, I'd tubgirl a 200-pound gorilla
Been banging with D-A-C for three years, I'm community pillar
Reading the forums 24-7, sippin' a sixpack Miller
Seen bitches come here, talking shit, throwing punches
Asshats all of them now, fucking carpet munchers
That's end of the story, take a hint, stranger
Fallout fan is like Nevada Wasteland Ranger

I'm starting to suspect Aptyp has totally lost it.
