Sup Holmes every Sunday at 2:30pm EST!

[Sup Holmes is a weekly talk show for people that make great videogames. It airs live every Sunday at 4pm EST on YouTube, and can be found in Podcast form on Libsyn and iTunes.]

[Update: Show's over everyone! A lot happened, including the dual declaration that Brain Dead/Dead Alive is Peter Jackson's second best film ever. That was just one of many surprising treats you won't want to miss. The rerun should be up soon, so you won't have to wait long. In the meantime, here is popular Youtube personality Markiplier playing Soma. He's got pink hair, which is nice.]

Horror! It can be more fun than conventional logic would dictate, which may be why AAA publishers like Capcom and Konami don't seem to have the same confidence in the genre as they once did. While both the Resident Evil and Silent Hill franchises may have fallen from grace in the eyes of many of today's horror fans, smaller publishers like Frictional Games have done well to fill the void left in their wake with highly successful titles like Soma and Amnesia: The Dark Decent (currently on sale for $4.99 until December 1st). 

We'll be talking with Thomas Grip, co-founder of Frictional Games, about the studio's rise to success, his influences, working with The Chinese Room on a sequel to the original Amnesia, his thoughts the state of horror games in the industry today, and a lot more. Join us here at 2;30pm EST for the live show as it transpires. There may even be a spooky surprise or two (but probably not).
