E3: Sleeping Dogs video

E3: Sleeping Dogs video

E3 is not over here yet for us, as we still have a bunch of videos from the showfloor to show you guys. Tonight, it's the turn of Sleeping Dogs, the GTA-like published by Square-Enix and planned for a summer release in August. Enjoy!

Actually looks pretty decent. I like the thought of Arkham Cities combat mixed in with a little blood and gore (not to mention the exploring, driving, and shooting to keep things fresh).

They do need to work on the physics/animations of the fight scenes though. Half the punches look like they go through the enemies, many lack any real impact, and then some knock outs have terrible physics or lack thereof as the enemies jump into a spin and fall animation. It just makes you realize how smooth and flowing the combat and physics in Batman really are...

how is the frame-rate compared to something shitty on that front (consoles)... lets say, GTA IV?

The version we saw a few weeks ago was ok framerate-wise when you were on foot. It was far less smooth when driving a car at high speed. I still think it runs better than GTA IV but I might be wrong, I haven't played it in a while.

Would you still say that if this had been called Stray Cats?

Now allow me my own bad pun: This looks like a sleeper hit. I'll be here all week.

Ah jesus, the same video we've been having for like...man i don't know..a thousand times. Don't they show any other parts from the game other than this?

seriously why this same part again and again, sometime they cut the chase and shows only fighting and sometimes with the chase part, even when it was TC Hong Kong, they showed this chase in a trailer O.o
anyways i am getting this game not only it looks good also to support square enix-eidos to bring this game to life again

If they gave this guy a job working down on the docks, and allowed him to hit up the working video game arcades, then this could be Shenmue III. The way things are going, this is very likely the closest we are ever going to get to seeing the next chapter in Yu Suzuki's opus. I guess that also means that Shenmue IV - VI are also out of the equation :(

About the game


What's up?

    2PintsOfInsulin I am wishing they would release a touch-screen version Seaman on mobile devices. It looks nice on Reicast, but it's really awkward picking stuff up using on-screen control buttons. (21 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX "The flying mechanics feel a bit better than Battlefield games, where I typically can only stay in the air a few moments before crashing" = lols.. this is obviously an opinion to take seriously. (24 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Where are all of these AAA total conversions that people seem to be playing? (27 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I want to play some of these "half-assed mods" that people compare AAA releases to. People even said Doom 4 looks like a Doom 3 mod. I do not think that people know what mods are anymore. (27 minutes ago)
