[Company -> Update] - More info on Person: Herve Caen | More info on Company: Interplay

rwemersonfan posted this on the Raging Bull forums.
Rumblings in MMORPG market
I hear Herve and Interplay are talking to lots of people about a new online gaming community they are building with their content and supposedly there is interest. Will see if they can get financing for this but their library remains strong. I am in so deep that I am staying to see what happens. Id say theres a 20 percent chance he will pull something off.

Hahaha. Someone should tell Herve that:
  1. to have any form of community, you need fans and respect. Herve doesn't have any fans or respect;
  2. to build a community with your content requires you to have content. Herve has no content;
  3. Herve is not only a corrupt businessman, but he is bad at being corrupt. Any venture he gets involved in crashes.
Reviewing that list, I think people probably have told Herve those points repeatedly, he just doesn't listen.

They're dead to me. It won't matter what happens.

I think Herve just doesn't speak English very well, and I have updated the news post accordingly.

I personally much doubted the veracity of that post when I read it. The guy hints at rumblings without any back-up and he's not even one of the more "trusted" people on Raging Bull. Like frymuchman, I'd like to see some proof of these rumblings.

Herve doesn't need a community, fans, or respect right now. He's banking on Fallout 3 making fans beyond the current fallout community. If it generates a good deal of buzz and sells a lot of copies on the XBox2 or whatever the hell it will be on, then he might get a good enough number of young, naiive, "what the hell is an Interplay?" gamers to get his FOOL going. Or so goes the pitch to blind, senile banker #12.

Of course, even if this pans out as well as possible, he'll still find a way to fuck it up. And Interplay will go under. And its assets liquidated. And Atari will high bid the rights to FOBOS and make 3 or 4 sequels in 18 months. And Nintendo will make Fallout: Racer. And I will make Fallout: Wasteland Wars RTS. And Herve's mother will produce the Candy Bottoms feature Fallout Ass Tactics II.
