The Testament of Sherlock Holmes  



Testament of Sherlock Holmes vid has a lovely ambiguity


8:30 PM on 12.21.2011



I love a good mystery and, as a result, I'm a big fan of Sherlock Holmes stories. I haven't played a game yet which I felt did a truly great job of putting me into a Holmes mystery, but The Testament of Sherlock Holmes may well break that trend. 

Take a look at this most recent teaser for the title. It's painting Holmes in an awfully negative light and even his dear friend Watson seems to have some doubts as to who London's greatest detective really is. I'm digging the writing and acting here in a big way. Plus, there are guys who have their eyes sewn shut and that's always a good time waiting to happen.

South Park Pinball is the crossover you never knew you wanted

With Marvel, Star Wars, and The Walking Dead under their belts, there's no license too big for Zen Studios to take on at this point. This time around, Zen has teamed up with Comedy Central and put together two new tables themed after none other than South Park. I wasn't sure what to expect, but should have known the tables would be phenomenal.more
