    still not buying a BOne, but this adds to my reasons to get one when i'm finally done with my 360. i enjoyed Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper, and if they can do Lovecraft justice, i'll give 'em my $$$.

    This could either be really good, or really bad.

    Looks like it might be a survival horror game, which would be interesting.
    I do like it when the red stuff comes out.

    And i already was thinking they bring back the PC game in some kind HD remake...

    Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth

    But this looks interesting, to.
    Kind Regards

    This certainly does look/sound interesting.

    Was hoping this would be a sequel to Dark Corners of the Earth, oh well.
    I'm just an ordinary teenage gamer, with an extraordinary lust for cheevos.

    The source material is enormous and has limitless potential, so this could be really good. Or not, time will tell.
    What can change the nature of a man?

    There was a call of cthullu on the original Xbox that I considered my "cult classic" of that gen. Very fun game.
    Deep into that darkness peering.. Long I stood there.. wondering..fearing.. doubting..

    They've got my attention on this game. I hope it stands up to Cthulhu Saves the World.
    Now that's an awesome game.

    Love the Sherlock games and Lovecraft, so I'm interested.

    Lovecraft, the greatest American author. Easy buy for me simply because of the subject matter.

    Cthulhu Can't wait. I missed the old Cthulhu game on the original xbox so def picking this up when it comes out in a year & a half

    I know several people that would be salivating at the chance let their minds be devoured to play a good Lovecraft inspired game

    Love the art, but I'm not interested in another point and click... if this takes a different direction I'll definitely give it some more attention.
    That's not sexy, that just hurts!

    The hotel chase sequence in Dark Corners of the Earth still stands as one of the most intense parts of a game I have ever played.

    "And as I did so I shuddered. For though the wind had not left much snow, a few patches did remain on the path near the door; and in that fleeting backward look it seemed to my troubled eyes that they bore no mark of passing feet, not even mine." - HPL, "The Festival"

    IMO: The best Survival horror game of all time

    And my personally most wanted remake, this is very good news. Don't like point 'n' click very much so lets hope this gets the attention it deserves and turns out to be a full blown Survival Horror.
    Let me find peace in my own heart and save me from my enemies.

    I played a bit of this back in my student days, I recall it being very weird.

    Do people realize that Lovecraft wrote other things besides The Call of Cthulhu?
    The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don't.
