Apply to Be a Beta Tester for Fallout Online

What the heck is Fallout Online? Why, it’s the project that was in dispute between Bethesda and Interplay, you know, the Fallout MMO? Apparently it’s not stuck in development hell! Fantastic news for the nuts like me, that thought Fallout 3 was okay, but it definitely was not a Fallout Fallout game. Yeah, I’m one of those people.

Anyway, if you head on over to the newly launched site, you will be greeted snazzy music, and with a short animation showing you polaroids of various locations, as well as a ‘Wish You Were Here’ postcard, finally ending with a form that you can fill out to apply to be in the early Beta program. Me, I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll get accepted into this thing. It would make my life. My very sad, (real) Fallout-less life.

If this actually ends up with a real game at the end, this could make two MMOs that I hypothetically am suckered into. If that’s the case, what the heck was the point of me avoiding WoW? These are terrible, terrible times indeed.
