Sherlock Holmes: The Awaken

Same developers as the other shrelock adventure games. I hear the last one, Silver Earing wasnt too bad. Perhaps they're getting better at this and this next game will be quite good. Fingers crossed anyway

Mystery games are few and far between, so hopes up.

I miss Murder on the Mississippi for the C64.

I still remember playing Clue, I still say it was the butler who wasn't really a butler, but a cop in disguise as a pimp.

Is "The Awaken" proper english?

It's bugging me for some reason.

You think it should be The Awakening don't you?

The Awakened, The Awakening, The Awake, Or just "Awaken".

Just nitpicking, don't mind me.

Perhaps it's some plot device, like for example The Awaken is the name of some relic or curse or something. Still would sound silly, though.

Like an STD? i.e.: Nin has given Alucard the Awaken.

Well seeing as how it is a Sherlock Holmes thing it is probably an object. I don't know why but that just seems to make sense, or maybe not.

So in that situation the mystery would be who gave the STD to Nin, and if Alucard has spread it any more.

Yeah but if the word asshat is used in the game then it may still be worth the money. Either that or we thank him for not making us waste money.
