    We reported earlier on Bethesda's renewed motion for a preliminary injunction, which continued to focus on their (in my opinion ridiculous) argument that Interplay could only use the Fallout name. Unsurprisingly, Interplay counter-filed to shoot it down.<blockquote>"For at least four years, Bethesda has known that Interplay interpreted its right to create the Fallout-branded MMOG to include copyrighted content from the Fallout universe in order to make the MMOG a recognizable Fallout game," the filing reads.

    "Bethesda never objected and did not seek an injunction because it knew Interplay was doing exactly what the parties intended under their agreements," the document continues.

    Interplay also takes issue with Bethesda's argument that a Fallout MMO would "confuse and confound" Fallout 3 players because of alleged plot conflicts between the games.

    "This is ironic because Bethesda contends Interplay should have created an entire game of incompatible story, characters, and art and labeled it Fallout only in name," the document says.</blockquote>

    You know, considering the obvious holes in Interplay's story regarding their financing, it's amazing that Bethesda just manages to keep rolling in more and more ridiculous arguments and contradicting their own arguments. This case should've been over a long time ago but man their lawyers are terrible.

    uh no! Im going to feel confused and disturbed!
    Waw, Beth really seems to considers its target group to have need of special care... fragile minds.
    What is plot anyway... If the mood of the game is good, then Im sure I wouldn't have any trouble with SOME plot inconsistencies...
    Heck! What are those Beth's saying? Plot inconsistencies , F3 is riddle with those! AND I WASN'T CONFUSED BY THOSE, JUST PLAIN ANNOYED AND BORED.
