<A href="http://www.homelanfed.com/">HomeLANFed</A> posted their <A href="http://www.homelanfed.com/index.php?id=23955">Sunday Top Ten List</a> yesterday, poking fun at the ill fated <A href="http://www.interplay.com">Interplay</a> and their attempts to earn a little money. Here's ten through six to whet your tastes:
<br>
<br>
<blockquote>10. Raffle off the rights to Descent and Freespace to mod authors.
<br>
9. Convince Donald Trump to fund a Trump MMORPG.
<br>
8. Organise tours of Interplay's offices; "Look, here is Mr. Landlord...."
<br>
7. Sell the movie rights for Kingpin to Vin Diesel.
<br>
6. Make a special DVD; "Interplay Gone Wild"</blockquote>
<br>
<br>
Mr. Landlord kind of kicked them out, so he'll be replaced with a new Mr. Landlord soon. As for number six, there's only so much of <b>Herve</b> and a goat one can stand.

Why do people have to pick on Interplay? They are going through a hard time right now and they need our support. They have put out tons of great games in the past and their very capable CEO is trying to return them to their former glory (hole).

Can't we all just get along?

I'm assuming sarcasm here. No one in the last ten years has been able to say "Can't we all just get along?" with a straight face.

I thought that the decline of IPLY was partially Fargo's fault. Correct me if Im wrong though. (Didn't he decide to move towards consoles in the first place?)

Actually, 5-1 are..

5. Make sure to turn off all lights and computers at night.
4. Appeal to gamers to buy all unsold copies of Lionheart.
3. Announce merger agreement with 3DO..wait a minute....
2. Announce new Fallout RPG developed by Trokia; Fallout fans will pre-order the game enough to keep the lights going.
And the number one way Interplay can raise money:
1. Start answering the phones with, "Interplay; want to buy the company?".
