Is this possibly the best game made in the last generation? I just picked it up for ps4 and am having a fucking blast.
Lets talk about Sleeping Dogs. Get in here pok gais.
I feel you bro. I can't bring myself to finish any games anymore, but there was something about this one that kept me going.it's a damn shame it hasn't gotten a proper sequel yet
it was nice game but it lacked any good side activities and the girlfriends part reeked of cut content. the story was really only compelling if you've never seen a hk police movie, otherwise it was an amalgamation of all of them. still a decent 7-ish/10 very solid game.
I literally bought those three games a few days ago. Dark Souls is kicking my ass, but satisfactory with small leaps. Dude Sex is pretty tight and Sleeping Dogs is comfy button-mashing goodness.
Driving is atrocious, combat gets very boring quickly, the game looks bad, you can't carry a gun on you, which forces you to do even more of that boring ass combat. You could count the number of things you can throw people into on like one hand. The radio was awful. Maybe its because I played gta4/5 before it and it blows sleeping dogs out of the water in every aspect. I could go on but i lost interest in this immediately. It's sucks because I was really hyped for it and got it for free off of that games with gold crap.
I suppose its like ff13 and the combat/music/driving completely changes after 30 hours? Oh wait.
I think the game looks pretty damn good and if I recall the game was really optimized for the PC
Also comparing any open world game to GTA is going to be a fight they're going to never win.
Game was fun, the atmosphere of HK was real cool but the game story is pretty uninteresting
Did anyone else put Tiffany into a car and drive her off a cliff after she cheated on Wei?
I found it ok, though driving felt abit awkward and alot of the GTA-style elements felt mediocre honestly. The story was really cool and I loved the hand-to-hand combat animations, so I had no issue sticking around for those two reasons alone.
>Sleeping Dogs 2
>Takes place in a Mexican border town
>You are a CIA agent undercover in the Mexican crime world
>Have to carefully balance being an angent or a drug runner
>Choices actually effect game
>Can either choose to do your job with the CIA, inform the cartels of CIA activity, or become your own drug lord
Like you wouldn't GOTY it.
Loved the game got it on steam then got cheap again for ps4. The costumes are great too
Fuck this would be awesome. "Sleeping Dogs" as a franchise that isn't stuck to one protagonist or setting, but ultimately about being stuck between law enforcement and organised crime.
yeah man, i fucking love it. the atmosphere is really great too. one of the few games where i can actually get lost in and forget im playing a video game. im doing a slow playthrough of it right now. kerang is best radio, not ping is best girl.if you don't rock a suit you are a nigger.
Agreed on Not Ping but I think you meant to say H-KLUB is best radio. Also
>not wearing the retro triad costume
>mfw peggy explains to Wei why having a gf is important
Atmosphere of the game was pretty damn good to me. It was a different for once compared to GTA. Driving was trash but passable, story was good but short as fuck. And the radio was actually pretty cool to listen to!
>H-KLUB radio ftw
Although, I was real disappointed when I heard the sequel was going to be some online only MMO bs
>Know her for a few missions
>Genuinely sad when her and Winston die
You know what? Good! Lol
I just wanted a real sequel, even if it werent as good as the first. Maybe its just cause i've never played any other game like it.
But they wanted online only apparently.
Jackie and Poe dyinghit me hard Knowing Pendrew gets fucked hard in jail and that I could kill Lee made me feel slightly betterOnly Slightly
Hopefully they realize that was a retarded idea and make something good. Wish they would collab with the Mafia devs to make some hype Cartel game.
Whoops forgot the poster
Yeah it felt pretty half assed as did the Zodiac Tournament.
>not on pc
you're killing me anon
i want a another good open-world action adventure game set in an asian city so bad
>next game is set in Mexico
>mfw I tell the cartel boss to finish his meal first
Not gonna lie, this is the one game on my 360 i have almost all tge dlc for, even if some of it was outfits. And I liked the new years dlc.
>But nothing beats that supercar with the mounted miniguns!
>sleeping dogs runs at 60fps ultra on my computer
>download triad wars
>runs at sub 20 fps
and they're using the exact same fucking world. Jesus fucking christ how did they fuck it up so bad
>started out as a wannabe
>became an official triad
>killed his first man becoming horrified in the process
>appreciated and respected Wei more than anyone else in the game
>wanted to have a normal life
>he was going to go steady with jiu mei
>he was going to be happy
FUCKING PENDREW YOU MOTHERFUCKER
Devs tried to make a crappy mmo using recycled assets from it instead.
It's like GTAO where it looks similair but has worse lighting and effects or someshit.
the MMO curse took KOTOR 3 and Sleeping Dogs II from us.
Why can't that genre die?
Development hell. Sleeping dogs almost got trashed in the first place because it was supposed to be a True Crime game
Technically Triad Wars IS the sequel; if it goes any farther than that who knows
>shit wei, when we were kids you were the only person who was nice to me
>you are my best friend
>that means more than a boss, you know
I honestly thought he was safe after I rescued him twice.
Don't do this to me anon, my heart can't take it. I legitimately choked up when Wei saw Jackie hanging dead like that. No game has ever done that to me before.
>that came out years later senpai (the proper PC & next-gen versions) and it still managed to be more one-dimensional in a more hollow world
You're full of shit. I played the game at launch (check the date on the screenshot) and talked about it every time one of the new story DLCs came out, but the game really is "discount GTA featuring Arkham Asylum". I thought it was a solid 7 or 8 but it's guilty of a lot of the same things that GTA did, and it's also very obviously an incomplete game.
Aside from pork bun guy and IT TAKES GUTS TO WEAR THAT, the NPCs are less interactive and the burgs are all segmented in a really weird way.
>It doesn't shoehorn you into a "reluctant gangster" story like every GTA game does desu
And "reluctant cop" is better? I understand preserving your cover but the shit Wei did was gratuitous and self-serving. He was a terrible fucking cop
>that's the complete opposite of who he is
Bullshit, Wei is a savage using his blues as carte blanche to do whatever the fuck he wanted.
>GOTTA MAKE MONEY BRO
I hate that I'm defending V, but there's more to the characters than your simple assessment.
>there's more to the characters than your simple assessment
>le crazy ebin edgeguy
>to do whatever the fuck he wanted
that's you as a player.
If he wanted to be a reluctant cop, he'd be controlling traffic or shuffling papers at a desk job.
>I hate that I'm defending V, but there's more to the characters than your simple assessment.
Not really no. especially not GTA V.
>Michael: GOTTA MAKE MONEY, AND ALSO BRING MY FAMILY BACK TOGETHER I GUESS LATER WHEN THAT HAPPENS ON ITS OWN
>Franklin: GOTTA MAKE MONEY AND ALSO LEAVE THE MINOR THUG LIFE BEHIND WHICH HAPPENS BY MAKING MONEY
>Trevor: GOTTA MAKE MONEY AND ALSO MUH BEST FRIENDS BUT MOSTLY THE MONEY
One of the things I liked about the game was that you could walk through the city and there would be these guys who don't show up on the map and they sell you shit for your apartment. Like a new bed and stuff like that.
It was only cosmetic, but I still really liked it.
>caring about making money
Well way to show you're retarded. Franklin had some very misguided reasons for going after money and by the end of the game the character is rich and miserable. Again, you're completely missing the point with your shitty assessments.
And Wei totally didn't get cucked either.
Fuck, I felt shame just using the word "cuck". /pol/ is fucking poison and so is anyone who references their maymays
he spends the entire first act of the game crying about how his enterprise isn't big enough and how he wishes he was selling weapons to countries, putting out mexicans and rednecks out of business by force because they're too much competition.
THEN he hears Michael's trademark catchphrase on the news and that becomes part of his character.
>And Wei totally didn't get cucked either.
Nigga Wei can date like 5 girls at the same time. If anything he is the one doing the cucking. As for Tiffany, lets just say she was taken care of.
>casually hitting up pussy
That's because the romances were written out of the main game because of how rushed they were with actually finishing the damn thing. It's a shame, I really liked Sandra and Not Ping.
Well at least Not Ping is the canon romance.
Because his life is unfulfilled because he never got that "big score" that Michael promised him. Fairly simple concept to grasp, really
>BEST 8TH GEN GAME
Bloodborne so far
>BEST 7TH GEN GAME
Either Dark Souls or Fallout: NV
>BEST 6TH GEN GAME
Silent Hill 2, followed by DMC 3
>I'd rather shoot at things from across the room with the same 3 weapons than use varied melee combat
> Sleeping Dogs
> varied melee combat
What a waste of Emma Stone. At least Sandra requires that you impress her with Sanic speeds before she spreads
>Sleeping Dogs thread
Fuck yeah just started playing it again on PS4 not long ago
Not Ping>Sandra=Teng>White Girl>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Tiffany. Prove me wrong
I liked Sleeping Dogs but didn't love it. The story and characters were pretty awful but the environments and gameplay was pretty decent. Music was very hit or miss in really weird ways. Graphics were pretty average, nothing special. Not sure why they needed famous actress girl to bloat the budget because it's literally nothing in the game. Overall it gets kind of repetitive but it's worth playing if it's on sale.
Solid 7/10, would like more combat mechanics, enemy types, mission types, and a much better story. I was hoping for The Wire: Hong Kong and it almost could have been
>driving is atrocious
yeh, no qualms here but Hong Kong makes it worth it.
>combat gets very boring
It's bamham combat but something about being in hong kong makes it enjoyable somehow
Original and Definitive Edition look fine, though Definitive does tons of things worse and chugs my meme GPU.
>you can't carry a gun on you
>Radio is awful
I prefer GTA4/5's radio too, but you're a faggot.
>not liking FlyLo
>not liking Freddie Gibbs
>not liking the Cantonese/Mandarin channels
>hong kong makes it worth it
Eh, not really. Maybe if the graphics and interiors were more fleshed out.
They both look alright, nothing really fantastic for the release
>carry a gun
that guy clearly wants to play GTA
Those are all fine but the mishmash of music was honestly too jarring to be enjoyable. I just put on 36 chambers on loop.
>Sleeping Dogs is the spiritual successor to True Crime
I only played Streets of LA but that was more good cop/bad cop. That glorious live action trailer led me to believe there would be more "cop" things going on in Sleeping Dogs but it was really just meeting up with your handlers between cases and helping Teng out once in a while.
Not Ping comes out in Nightmare in Northpoint
thats the thing - everything else runs fine besides triad turfs, so its not like they hit a switch that fucked up the game's performance by accident, its just they never bothered optimizing the game's core feature
Don't mind me, just made a webm for no reason
