The 11 bestest best apartments in gaming

Rather than marvel at digital houses we couldn't even dream of owning an armoire to put in IRL, let alone the whole building, we've turned our attention to the world of videogame apartments. These chunks of partitioned living are often just modular, nondescript spaces designed to house clues or bolster the sense of people living in a city, but occasionally there are apartments which offer…

Hell-Ementary: Sherlock Holmes – The Devil’s Daughter

Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes, does whatever a Sherlock can. Everyone's favourite logic-slinger, the mysterious costumed figure known as Sherley to his fans, will return in a new adventure next year. It's called The Devil's Daughter [official site] and will pit our friendly neighbourhood mystery-man against the usual cowardly superstitious criminals who challenge his deductive wit, but there'll also be "family stories, irresistible emotions and an…

A new Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments trailer demonstrates these skills, and though I might chortle at giving Holmes wild hair and a big old beard from his dress-up box of disguises, the deduction interests me. See, you'll need to search, research, and scrutinise to collect clues,…

Modern Murder-Solving: Sherlock Holmes’s E3 Trailer

Since Frogwares started making Sherlock Holmes video games in 2002, Hollywood and the BBC have made Arthur Conan Doyle's detective once again exciting, dangerous, mysterious, dark, cool, and, you know what, maybe just a little bit sexy. He's gained a fanbase far beyond exclusive organisations which eat expensive dinners. Now you find yourself in the awkward position of watching something Sherlockian on Boxing Day when…
