[ Game -> Update ] - More info on Game: Fallout: Online

That's rigth folks!

The subscription-based game would cost a lot to make and run though - with a budget that "totals $75,000,000 and will be funded by Interplay, its development and distribution partners" (and the aforementioned whoring of stock).

If things go to plan, Interplay hopes to start production next month - giving it just over three and a half years to get things ready - and then quickly build an audience of one million subscribers in the first year the game's on sale.

Herve is starting design work on the Fallout MMOG as we speak! He's taking night coding classes at the local community college. FOOL is gonna be big...I can't wait ;-)

Thanks for the tip Boywoos.

Oh...and for those who haven't seen Interplay's SEC presentation, check it out here. It has nifty graphics!

Erm, KoC, that bit is just a write-up of the piece of fiction we call Interplay's SEC filing, not actual news.

WoW = ~8 million
GW = ~200k last time I checked.

They want to make a game that hits 1 million within the first year?

I shall say "good luck", as I am confident in Herve's ability to make it piss poor.

The 7 P's:
Proper Previous Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance

That has nothing to do with the above newsarticle, however it just reminded me of it.

then you should've riffed on the fact that according to his filings Herve should long be done gathering funds and as of last notice should've had news in the week after new year's.

Wish he would file for bankruptcy already. The company is DEAD DEAD DEAD.

Yeah, finished my year up.


I managed to not sample the marmelade, tho I later found out I drove right by this shop selling it.

It was so small you could swear it was buried on the side of the road.

As I stated in my NMA posts time and time again, I just can not see Interplay ever creating anything of value, much less a Fallout MMO, with Herve at the Helm.

Herve just isn't a savvy enough businessman to manage this Herculean feat. He lacks the inspiration for good business deals, and does not possess any knowledge about the venue of the game industry. All he really has is an IP (Fallout) and a buzzword.

Which is easier to accept as truth? That Herve, with his long history of breaking deals, lying, bad business decisions, no working demo, no concept art, no original fallout writers nor a staff of any type managed to find, 7 days after being served an involuntary bankruptcy order, an unknown, secret, investor with ultra-deep pockets to funnel some $75 million into a untested MMO genre that will take 3-4 years to start yielding a profit.

Or, Herve hustles up a document filled with misspellings, inaccuracies, fallacies, cheap graphics and unrealistic expectations claiming to have secret investor a week after being threatened with bankruptcy?
