This week, Europe is first in line to discover The Testament of Sherlock Holmes on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. Some of you might think it looks too dated to deserve their attention, but you would be wrong. The four videos below will show you a few extracts of this pure adventure game, with some pretty hard puzzles to give you a hard time. For now, you will only see the Xbox 360 version of the game but we should have some PC videos as well in the days to come. If you have questions, ask away, I will try to answer in the comments. Update: PC videos added (1080p/60fps).
Note: The game is actually compatible with a controller, but you need to be in-game to use it the first time. There is also a point and click mode if you prefer moving around your character the old-fashioned way with mouse and keyboard.
that shits expensive to do. (4 minutes ago)
I'd rather stuff like glass reacted realistically via physics, than have realistic reflections and refraction via multiple light bounces (5 minutes ago)
rather than wasted processing power concentrating on stuff with little beneficial trade offs compared to hack techniques (7 minutes ago)
It's not entirely surprising, though. Hybrid rendering was always going to be the way forward. It depends how efficient it is, but I'd still rather devs do something with physics and AI (8 minutes ago)
@Melmoth: Remedy's tech demo just makes me want a Blade Runner 2049 game now. Yes, I think I'd probably get aroused if a BR2049 game were announced by them using that tech. (9 minutes ago)
@crookedmind: so is people overreacting on the steam reviews like usual? (4 Hours ago)
@droezelke: what is plagiarized exactly? they ripped models and tracks from another game? because it just looks like another futuristic racer to me? (4 Hours ago)
