After last month's announcement of Interplay catalog titles coming to GameTap
, we surely weren't alone in wondering where the Fallout games were. Sure, MDK
and Earthworm Jim
are great additions but, with Fallout 3
coming out later this year, the absence was enough to make us reach for the bottle. Now, just a few weeks later, the 'Tap has announced that those previously announced Interplay titles – as well as the "widely successful Fallout
titles" – will be available not only through the subscription service but also for free play on the ad-supported website.
And just like that, put another check mark on Interplay's ongoing quest to monetize their stable of properties and turn all that red ink black. Next step: sequels and that Fallout MMO
they keep talking about.
