    So they're finally doing it: after not showing any significant (if any) progress on the Fallout MMO, Bethesda are now suing Interplay. But for some strange reason, they are also suing over the original games.

    Quoting Gamasutra:

    Wait a minute...people have been confused over which is which? Those people must be fucking thick then, so if you're one of them, here's a hint: one is a isometric turn-based RPG, and the other is a 3D shooter RPG with FPS and TPS. Not exactly difficult.

    Next, what exactly does this mean for the old series? Will Steam, GOG.com, etc have to pull the games? Hopefully not, with any luck Bethesda will allow them to keep selling them. Worst case scenario: Bethesda completely blocks off all attempts to re-sell the original series, further pissing off the Fallout fan base and anyone who wishes to play the originals.
