Some time ago I stumbled upon a great blog that I read almost every day: Briosafreak’s Fallout 3: A Post Nuclear Blog. In his blog he brings us daily news on everything related to the Fallout series with special focus on the upcoming Fallout 3 by Bethesda. One of the features on the site is a real blast from the past: Desslock’s interview with Tim Cain about ToEE. If you haven’t already read it, check it out and remember the good old days. 🙂

GameBanshee’s Thomas Beekers has talked with Jason D. Anderson of Troika fame who is currently Creative Director for the Interplay Entertainment MMORPG project. Although he couldn’t reveal much about the project he’s working on since it was not “officially announced”, it seems a sure bet that it’s a Fallout MMOG. Here’s an excerpt:
As I am interviewing potential employees for Interplay, I am not only taking a hard look at people’s skills, but at their overall attitude on game making and the gaming industry as well. I am very interested in people with a “we can do it!” attitude – something you see much more of at small development houses and top-rated companies like Blizzard. I am trying to put together the best hand-picked team I can so that we can create a really great game. Pessimists need not apply.
