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.
Trackmania Turbo – 360° demo - Valley Down & Dirty: [url] Great trailer and I hope more companies do 360º trailers in the future. (38 minutes ago)
@Tiz: Aye it's a gimmick but it kinda worked pretty well with the right games ;) (3 Hours ago)
But 98% of my Kinect usage is directions and pausing films and apps. (4 Hours ago)
@aphex187: Kinect is still fun for a joke, mostly because it is a joke. A gimmicky peripheral that kind of suits Friday night madness. I have had my fair share of fun with it when relatives are around (4 Hours ago)
Cheers guys, think i'll leave i then. It was only a thought for friday night drunken antics ;) (5 Hours ago)
@aphex187: It's useless to me. I haven't used it since launch week. (6 Hours ago)
@aphex187: Really Kinect is a glorified microphone. Super useful for when you don't want to cave dive the UI. For game, I think there is Kinect Sports. (7 Hours ago)
