Apparently it's not yet available at Amazon. I hope the price tag stays the same! Whooo!

Q. What are the minimum specs for Call Of Cthulhu for PC?
A. Call Of Cthulhu requires a PC with minimum specifications of P3 500, a 32mb Direct 3D compatible graphics card and 128mb RAM.
That's what the official site kept telling me for years. Did anything of this change? It's pretty low and yet still looks pretty cool in my book.

Play.com claims to have it in stock. Shame that I spent £20 on other games in the last couple of days ...

Haven't started playing it yet, but since it's a first person game my guess is that it works better with the PC than the consoles. I've never been really confortable with first person games and console controllers (with one exception: Metroid Prime for the cube).

The game looks like it's 4 years old, but it's still good for an "adventure" game.
I havnt tried the console version so I dont know which one is best.
I am annoyed with the lack of quicksaves because I hate repeating the same bit over and over again.

Well, it kinda looks like a cross between Mafia and Half-Life 2 , and does not bother me in the slightest. It has even managed to suprice me in some sections (nice water effects).

I don't think "gee-whizz graphical features" is what makes graphics look good but maybe that's just me.

Apparently Headfirst will soon be no more. Well, actually, they are no more. Some devs also confirmed this on the boards. This is a seriously ****ed up industry.

However, it all smells of mismanagement. First the Simon3D desaster, then a full six year development cycle for the only game that actually got finished over that time. Who the hell actually thought they'd make a profit from this? I don't know if Headfirst was still run by Mike Woodroffe, but it seems to me that he never figured out a way to get into the industry after it became really huge during the mid/late 90s. He did just fine with Horrosoft/Adventuresoft, back in the times when it took a year and only a small team to produce a high quality game.

Well, sad.

That's some really disappointing news alright...

But that's really shows some love for the game when that Lead Engineer guy finished the PC port on his own for free after the company had gone down.

Yeah, but fortuanetly most of the staff got jobs farly quick at other high-ranking companies.
And Hooded_Claw is a hero, I'm buying a second copy of the PC version out of respect for this guy.
