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.
