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

Former Interplay employees finally got paid, and it's all thanks to Bethesda. From former IPLY employee Corith:

Ok some details then . . .
Herve had a bad habit of considering himself above having to answer, or even speak to, non-executive types. Nothing concrete mind you, he just exuded an aura of contempt and disdain for people who didn’t have the title “vice president” or higher in their corporate moniker. He changed salary employee to wage several months after the fact with out notifying them because he felt he didn’t have too. He refused to pay back wages nor any penalties when he lost lawsuits, or would even show up.

Since some have asked, here is the skinny on the court adventures.
Herve did not want to pay the penalties assigned by the court case, so 4 of us, including Alden and Bioware, got together and claimed in 3 years, IPLY had made no progress on paying the various legal judgments, and that it was insolvent since being evicted. After numerous stalling attempts, the noose tightened as the judge began to see Herve for the slime ball he was/is. Herve went begging to Bethesda to pull his pink, plump, rump out of the ringer. As many of you know, they bought all of Fallout for 6 million, in 2 million installments on the prevision (among numerous others) he has pay EVERYBODY, EVERYTHING, even those that didn’t file. Every lawsuit, every back wage, every dime. No more tricks or Bethesda yanks his chain.

You can read the court proceedings for yourself, but basically, Herve is now Bethesda’s bitch. He marches to the beat of their drum and should he step out of line, they will revoke his ability to use anything Fallout.

...

After 3 years, to the month, that the Herve tried to pull his “I don’t pay the little people” stunt, the mighty hand of Bethesda, and the threat of bankruptcy, finally forced Herve to pay me, to pay EVERYBODY.

Thank you Herve for the new 07 jeep, and my wife loves her new pt cruiser convertible.

It's always a good day when Herve Caen is unhappy.

there's actually something appealing in them, especially when they were new they would catch my eye and I thought they were.. kina nice retro-modern, small-but-big..
I gather the sales exceeded the prognosis?

on the topic tho, Herve's finally officially got the title he long deserved.

Well that's 300% more than it was this time last year, so they're doing quite well.

It's in very, very, very early development stages. Conceptual really, from what I've read and seen.

My opinion of Bethesda has gone up significantly.

Maybe he was joking.



Just add running boards and remember to wear a fedora.

Reminds me of that one hentai manga where there was this pig-man raping this like 80+ old tranny in the ass with his cybernetic turtle(?) penis.
