When Square-Enix first contacted us regarding our copy of Sleeping Dogs, we thought we had a good chance to be able to write a full review. But when the game only arrived at Ghost_Deus' den yesterday, it was clear that he would not be able to make it on time for the game's release in Europe today. As you'll see in his videos, United Front Games' title oozes atmosphere and the Hong Kong setting is a nice change from the usual New York City landscape. Although not everything is perfect, it is great to see that the gameplay mechanics work well, especially combat, which is very satisfying. The console versions may not be as sharp as most AAA titles, even considering the open evironment, but they manage to be very immersive nonetheless. On PC, things look much nicer, as proven by the screenshots our good friend onirik took for us.
@Moonwalker: yep, no qte's also, which surprised me! Telltale's titles become more limited with every new series. (1 Hour ago)

@Executioner_UK: do kids still even use expressions like "lol" and "wtf"??? (6 Hours ago)
i like it that you can talk to almost anyone, in that sense more interaction compared to Telltale, the refereces to some aweome popular anime and gaming are really cool too. And i def like this genre. (8 Hours ago)
I am really liking Life is Strange a lot. It's a bit like Heavy Rain, bit like Telltale's games but minus the IMO unessecary and annoying timers in conversations. Has a rearl likeable main characte (8 Hours ago)

@Executioner_UK: The PRESS pretty commonly calls it "Xbone." It's a nickname not a contribution to your system wars. (10 Hours ago)
