Brilliant news. I'm not really a big fan of the Fallout universe, but at least this'll stop Interplay from going bust before they dish out the sequels of their classic franchises... MDK.

Sweet win for Interplay, 2010 seems to be off to a great start for the company.

Well, the lawsuit is dropped, but that doesn't mean that they have won. The lawsuit was dropped as a result of a deal that was made between Bethesda and Interplay, and I'm sure neither party would agree to it unless they thought it was in their best interests, so the content of that deal could be pretty monumental.

Still, I like interplay and even though I wouldn't play a fallout MMO, I'm still pulling for them.

Losing the license would have been the death blow for Interplay, so far Interplay had the upper hand since the judge had thrown out the injunction notices in December so I'm sure they had more bargaining power but it's too early to say.

In other words, that the lawsuit gone on Interplay had more to lose than Bethesda solely due to their lack of funds.

A remake of The Lost Vikings. Never really played the SNES version much 'cause I didn't understand it at the time, but a next-gen version would at least be interesting. I imagine something along the lines of Trine, though I haven't played that as I don't use steam or have a ps3 (yet... unbelievably I just haven't had the chance to get one).
