I was Scouring Joystiq a few minutes ago and saw 2 interesting articles.
Firstly, Interplay may be counter-suing Bethesda over a Fallout MMO. A user of the RagingBull(link to related forum post) forum claims he has a copy of the court documents. In summation, Interplay claims it sent an outline of a Fallout MMO to Bethesda before the April cutoff date. Also, Interplay is counter-suing, mainly accusing Bethesda of bullying Interplay, by withholding their approval of marketing materials related to the original games. Also according to the post, Bethesda sent emails out to places like GameTap and Good Old Games, telling them that Interplay no longer had the rights to Fallout 1, 2, or Tactics. This is an interesting turn, Interplay is laying out a pretty interesting case if they can bring in the material to back it up. The Forum post is actually a pretty interesting read.
Secondly, I noticed right below that article... CIVILIZATION COMING TO FACEBOOK!!!! you heard me right, coming in 2010, a free-to-play, "Fully Persistent" , Civilization game coming to Facebook!, the game's page on Facebook says they will be doing a closed beta soon...SIGN ME UP!
