#1 Posted by Doomed (196 posts) -

I'm so excited for this quick look / review / discussion on the Bombcast.

Oh shit, this game is about to come out. Someone get Justin McElroy.

Spelled "watiting" wrong...It's ok though. Looking forward to see some coverage as Sherlock's dog (spoilers).

Am I the only one that's actually legitimately planning on getting this?

....assuming it's not a full priced $60 game, if it is then I'll just wait til a Steam sale.

Justin's so lucky, he's playing it right now, just look at the achievement page for the game.

My only problem is which format do I get it on.

I assume this thread is some dumb joke, but I looked at the page for this the other day and it kinda looked ok.

I think this game's price drop to $40, but it was originally planned as $60 game.

On the last Besties he mentioned that he was playing it.

@MariachiMacabre: I hope to God the GB guys can get him on a show soon to get him to talk about it. USE THAT CBS MONEY TO FLY HIM OUT.

That said, if it doesn't take that week's Bestie I'm rioting, LA style.

Got that right. It's spelled 'watitng'.

You most certainly are not. I hope it is not $60, though... Might have to wait for a sale if that's the case.

#16 Posted by abdo (1037 posts) -

@Maajin: it's $39.99 on Amazon right now

#17 Posted by Mars_Cleric (1593 posts) -

It's out now, isn't it?

Anyone played it yet?

#18 Posted by WulfBane (190 posts) -

I'll admit I've got some interest probably in a bad way to check this out considering the E3 "preview coverage" the last two years. Plus, in the preview PR lady's defense, they already foreshadowed how Dr. Watson behaves around Sherlock w/ a previous game

Dr. Watson is creepier than Slender Man

(I was a little sad to see it was actually just the 3rd game so I couldn't claim it happened in SHIV and also that this isn't the game you get for per-purchasing it on steam)

Just re-listened to the two consecutive years of E3 chats with Justin about The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, the 6th Sherlock Holmes game (aka SHix), and if they do not get Mr. McElroy for a Quick Look, I will consider it a crime against nature. The nature of the internet. Check them out on YouTube if you need a refresher on the death of Mr. Holmes (oh... spoiler?), just search "Justin Bombcast" and they'll be the top two results.

greenmangaming is also selling it digitally, across region lines!. They say available now. Is anyone taking the $40 plunge just to be in on a dumb joke? Note that they often (always?) sell steam codes so watch out you might get street dated.

I've never seen them Quicklook any of the Sherlock Holmes games. Which is kind of a shame- while they aren't amazing at least the one I played (The one where he... you know what I wont spoil it but its Sherlock Holmes The Awakened) was alright. I like that they try cross overs with it and have meaningful puzzles to the atmosphere. I still want to play the one where he is on the trail of Jack the Ripper.

Justin mentions them every year on the E3 bomb cast when he shows up. Seems like nobody else even cares haha and I can kind of understand why.

Justin's stories about the PR on it are always great though.

I am surprised Frogware is still making these games. They must be at least popular somewhere.

Edit: Sorry, I'm not happy with how my grammar turned out. I'm tired though. (Excuses!) I tried to make sense. I probably failed, but at least I tried.

It isn't just a joke :( Shi6 is genuinely good, if you like the genre.

It's... surprisingly enjoyable so far. Crippling frame-rate problems on ps3, and I do mean crippling. but the deduction parts remind me of Ace Attorney Investigations!
