Interplay without BIS is like a brahmin without a head, its going nowhere. And any clown with a few dollars in his pocket can reregister a domain and make that "website".

Classic. :D

 

 

The whole thought of Interplay still mildly glowing saddens me. Can't they let it go already?

I was raised by polar bears. I had to fight against blood thirsty wolves and rabid penguins to get my food. Those who were too weak to survive were sent to Sweden.

 

It has made me the man I am today. A man who craves furry hentai.

So let us go and embrace the rustling smells of unseen worlds

"Interplay without BIS is like a brahmin without a head, its going nowhere."

 

Eh. Interplay was around well before BIS was even a little splat in the colouring book. And, they were darn successful as well. In fact, in many ways, they were more successful before BIS's time than during and espicially after.

 

R00fles!

It pains me to say it (well, not really), but... Volo is right.

Interplay need to go back to basics. There are plenty of older games that they could knock out for next to nothing on the GBA. The GBA dosnt require any of the expensive bells and whistles that the other systems do.

 

You also dont need any great talents as the graphics are somewhat abstract anyway.

I have to agree with Volourn.  Bioware is pretty much dead now.  Deals like this kills development studios.

No, Volo is not right. Interplay never did anything interesting before BIS started developing CRPGs for them and without them, Interplay has no reason to exist.

Wrong. You should know the hsitory ebfore spouting such nonsense. This isn't an insult about BIS; but a fact. Interplay has been around for a long time, and they have many successful and popualr games made before BIS existed. Nice try though.

"BIS did Fallout and Icewind Dale series and PS:T and as Fallout was a great sucess the other two ... not as much."

 

Eh. IWD was a great success. And, PST sold just as much FO. Nice try; though.

PST wasn't the requisite "quick" cash flow though.

 

It has persistent sales....but sales alone don't indicate profits, as I would bet that a large portion of the people that played the game bought it when it was CDN$20 like me.

 

Although I don't know when the bulk of the Fallout sales were, so they could be comparable.

 

I'm just basing this on a loose memory of hearing Feargus talk about it on these boards.

True; but FO was in the same boat as PST. Many of its sales were also through persistent sales; though for whatever reason it managed to get a sequel, talk of a second multipel times that's got canceled, as well as off shoot titles. That's one area where FO was more successful than PST.

Actually for some weird reason most of my games came from interplay before BIS started. It wasn

I remember playing Descent like a mofo with my friends over the school's LAN back in the day. Those were the times, really.

 

Interplay has done quite a few good games before BIS- and also quite a few flops, too. But Descent will always have a special place in my heart.
