Well fellow gamers, the FANTASTIC Call of Cthulhu game has finally got a release date and pre-order availability.

It was supposed to be released LAST DECEMBER and I was waiting with baited breath to get it for Christmas. Disaster!, it wasn't released, but was said to be out in January. Again the excitement grew, I checked weekly for any news, and January came and went and NO NEWS!!!! I was devastated once again. Months went by, each time I checked there was no news, nothing, nada, zip! How many bugs could there be in a game that was about to launch last December for it to take all this time to sort???

Anyway, I am ecstatic to have found that it is finally at pre-order level with a release date of 30th October 2018 o/ YAAAYYYYY.

I played the old game Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth and it was brilliant. So this new game with fantastic graphics is going to be awesome. I think I feel a holiday from work coming on for the first week of November.

Daaayyyummmm.

Now THAT'S a video game trailer....

When I was growing up, there were very few authors that could heeb me out as quickly as Lovecraft.

Considering that, can you even IMAGINE how that guy's mind works?

I bet you dollars to donuts that there are some dark places in THAT guy's mind.

Oh yeah, totally agree! Can you imagine how creepy this game would be on a 3D full immersion headset?

I remember when watching the film Dagon, how scary the 'escape from the hotel room' scene was, purely because I had played the game with that exact same scene in it (failing miserably quite a few times coz the timing was very tight for escape) and my anxiety at the escape went right back to game mode just watching the film lol. Funny how your body works, even when it is not in reality.

I used to play Dreadhalls using a smartphone and a Bluetooth controller. Those levels were mostly empty with just a few characters (I used to call them Binky, Scary Mary, Meatball, Smoky I and Smoky II). But even on sunny Saturday afternoon once I put that headset on, it was like being alone in the dark basements of a mansion. That game just got too realistic when I ended up being caught in a pincer movement between two characters (Binky and Scary Mary). Attempting to achieve 100% exploration of a level and 100% collection of all treasure was really tense.

Extend that to a full adventure RPG with crowd scenes and that would be crazy.

Big Lovecraft fan here. Other than FO76, this is something I can sink my tentacles into...

Will wait until they release the recommended specs (I ignore the "required")
A game absolutely has to be graphics heavy before I purchase it.
One thing though , it is Focus Interactive/Chaosium/Cyanide.
That makes it a potential buy

oh man that sounds really really scary. With the games and graphics quality we have now along with Oculus and other 3D full immersion games, sometimes I wonder if gaming could unhinge people and instead of being a fun game, it could be the stuff of nightmares and almost torture.

I hope so too, considering how long I have been pining for this game!! I think this might be the one where I have to get in all the supplies I need (wine, snacks, some more substantial food, paper plates etc) and just lock the door for a week, lol.

FO76 looks like it has fabby graphics, though I am more a Myst/The Room/The Da Vinci House/The Vanishing of Ethan Carter game player. To be honest, I am not that great at shooting things, so Cthulhu might be a bit challenging at times for me!

I have a pretty decent rig but for this game, if it doesn't run full on I would consider an upgrade to my graphics card, I just don't want to compromise on this one. Does that sound ridiculous? Part of me thinks it does, and part of me just WANTS THE BEST for graphics!!

I will be quiet for a bit as it is well past bed time over here, but look forward to reading any further input when I wake up tomorrow.
