[ Company -> Update ] - More info on Person: Herve Caen | More info on Company: Interplay | More info on Game: Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game

Fallout is on The Escapists list of Favorite Story-Based Games. From the list:
"If anything, Fallout should be remembered for helping to give rise to the anti-hero, and all of the plot twists associated with them. Speaking of plot twists, the ending really made me wish I had gunned down more people that deserved it. -JR"

Read: Favorite Story-based Games, at the Escapist

In his latest SEC filing, Herve mentioned that "Starting on December 1, 2006 and through December 15, 2006, Interplay
Entertainment Corp. will give a slide show presentation during meetings with
various European qualified investors."

frymuchan noted on the Raging Bull forums that "today is the last day of Herve selling his pitch to investors. People are likely selling fearing bad news and trying to beat the rush if the funding falls through. PMy (sic) guess is that the stock will fly upwards if Interplay can earn even half of what they are looking to raise."

No news about these presentations has appeared yet, but something may filter through after the weekend has passed.

I'm assuming the slides are the presentation you guys posted as "Interplay attempts to pimp DaC"

It'd make sense, because that presentation is very slideshow-ish. Grand to imagine Herve holding a sale pitch with it.

"Just 500 miles on the counter, hardly ever been used, was owned by an old lady who only took it out once a year."

We should post Herves picture on the main site with some photoshop on it or something. So when investors actually look at the sites they will get a giant "WTF?" and herve will be at a loss of words.

Qualified investors ? The specifics would induce nausea and not a shred of pity, I suspect. icon_drunk

Go back to alrite. Also, that still doesn't explain why you've come all the way out here -- to hell.

'OBEY' is one of the most prolific stencil/sticker graffiti icons ever, based off the mug of wrestler andre the giant. quite big in london especially.
