    As it was hinted earlier last month, GOG.com have had to cease offering the original Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics games as part of their selection - a move that can be seen as sort of a milestone for GOG, who had been providing a convenient, legit source for those since the very beginning of the service. If you had obtained Fallout previously though, such as through a purchase or during their mid-December free offering, Good Old Games says you will still be able to download the installers - although you must have had already made the code registration or made the purchase before Dec 31st, as any unredeemed free offering codes are no longer valid. Gift codes obtained outside this giveaway are, on the other hand, still good to get a copy.

    Here's to another tumultous year for the Fallout franchise ;)

    Interplay giving them away last month was their last big "eff you" to Bethesda then eh?

    First time Interplay is the good guy for as long as I can remember. Good on them. :clap:

    That picture they picked for the story could not have been more appropriate.

    how did that happen? I mean ... why did Interplay lost all that is Fallout to Bethesda? Didnt this all started with Bethesda buying the right to make 2 new games ... now they own the whole franchise :irked:

    Interplay didn't make the MMO fast enough so Zenimax sued their lazy asses. /nutshell

    Such a disaster Bethesda owning the rights.

    I applaud Interplay for one last F-U to Bethesda.

    Btw, does anyone know what went between Interplay and Bethesda? summary please ;) Because for years I only seen bits and pieces about the law suites and a lot of speculations, initially I assumed that Bethesda was trying to fuck Interplay, but from what I glimpsed since, it seems that failing Interplay was unable to make good on its end and was trying to leech on Bethesda success.

    What about Steam? Still for sale there, and quite possibly under Bethesda's guidance, but it's still sold in the "Fallout Collection". Didn't Bethesda object to that collection (or at least its name)?

    Btw, his post makes sense:
    So we might see those game return, only this time with a new red tape from beth on the wrapping.
