    Miroslav Water Chip? Been There, Done That

    Well you gotta hear this. Chuck, the main dude behind the creation of Fallout Brotherhood of Steel, posted this on official Interplay forum (no link sorry, as I do not like what they're doing over there):<blockquote>Ok Boys and Girls, here is your chance.

    Myself and the Lead Designer of Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel will be fielding questions and posting the answers on the boards Tuesday, April 29 and Wednesday, April 30.

    An e-mail account will be set up for questions to be submitted. This account is for F:BoS questions only. Some things may not be answered it is just not possible or feasible to answer everything at this time. It is almost certain that some redundancy will exist, so if your own personal question does not get answered, please look for one that is similar.

    There are a few rules:
    1. Any e-mail’s that are malicious or insulting will be ignored, as well as all questions from that person.

    2. Questions that have been answered in any interviews will most likely reference those interviews.

    3. If your questions do not get answered, please don’t take it personal.

    4. We can not answer questions regarding Fallout 3, Black Isle, any Islander or Interplay Corporate.

    5. We reserve the right to amend these rules as needed.

    The e-mail account is: BOSforum@interplay.com

    The answers to the questions will then be posted in a locked topic for your review.

    Interplay Development does hope you get the answers you are looking for. We do believe in this game and hopefully the press coverage that is scheduled to start will help you see that this game is not going to bury Fallout, but instead broaden the appeal and reasons to make more Fallout games.

    So sharpen those Shiv’s and load those Akimbo’d DE’s and take your best shot, because our First Aid and Artful Dodger skills are max’d.

    With Genuine Sincerity,
    Chuck Cuevas
    Producer - Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel</blockquote>Now take your best shot indeed! Groin aim and do those criticals!

    I just miss those lovely chats from several years ago... Ah, when people like to chat via email...

    Update Here's that link (Odin)

    Of course they're doing it this way. They don't have the cojones to stand out in a chat and take the assreaming that is their due and any close to the mark or "uncomfortable" questions they can safely "lose somewhere".

    Naturally, it would be hard to ream their ass via a foot aimed in that location without causing them any neck injury due to the location of their head firmly lodged up their collective rectums.

    Bah, wonder why they would possibly need these two rules?

    well I know exactly what's cooking there... I just can't say it publicly, they could sue me... they once even issued a warrning towards me :D I never said that publicly, don't know if someone else got their "warrning email"... it was the time of Tactics campaign

    They're quite likely looking for real ideas to steal, since (as with FOT's development) they are probably clueless.

    Kinda hard to miss that one, eh.. :D

    I expect this is also due to the massive negative respons to this title, and their attempt to "fix" things.. We only have to see what happens or becomes of this title..

    Chances are, they'll take the few optimistic replies they do have and try to regurgitate it back to their few remaining stockholders.

    You know, someone should tell Feargus (if his rumored quitting is real) that he shouldn't quit. The Fallout fandom (and everyone who cares about the setting/game) has someone else to barbecue.

    A target (Chukie José Cuervos) that makes themselves far too easy to loathe by their blatant incompetence and absolutely pathetic knowledge of game design, if I dare insult any real developers by insinuating that is what that Neanderthal is trying to do.

    That's my guess also, besides who are they kidding. This all is like a death cramp from IPLY, a last attempt to get some cash flowing into the corporation.

    IPLY is dead anyway. No way are they going to make a hit console game...look at the trouble Xbox is having, console games are set until something new comes along...and I doubt BIS or IPLY has the brains to think of anything orginal the way Feargus and Caine did with Wasteland or Fallout respectivily.

    Feargus did the right thing....like rats off a sinking ship.

    an extremly dangerous thought idea camo on my mind... I hoped, for a second, that they do make money out of this game, maybe there would be something with fallout, something good...

    then again, I'm getting older and such bullshits are bugging my brains

    Well, some have thought of that before, but as demonstrated with Fallout Tactics 2 and Ultima Online, if Fallout: POS has good sales, that wouldn't result in a Fallout 3 or even insurance for a much better game. All it means is they will take the engine and make another game based upon that.
