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.
@KORNdog: 1080p to 4K scales well because it's exactly 4X. You don't get that typical scaling blur. (33 minutes ago)
Only downside and regret i have is having a curved screen.. but that changes next friday when i pick up new "flat" Samsung UHD.. (48 minutes ago)
@bleachedsmiles: i can assure you bud.. as a 4k tv owner there is NO downside in hooking up your consoles.. defeatable upscaling in game mode allowing for native on most mid to high end with hdmi 2.0 (51 minutes ago)
To me he was making points on not just Battlefront, but particular peeves I have with how the industry has went these days. Plus $120 for a fucking game?! Jesus Christ. (1 Hour ago)
@KORNdog: Yeah, I don't usually watch him, but I didn't mind that one. He'd plenty to say on it, and every point he made was bang on. He wasn't his usual OTT schtick either. (1 Hour ago)
i agree with what he's saying though. the game isn't interesting enough to pay double the amount for more content. (1 Hour ago)
Game design taking a backseat in favour of capitalising on the licence and the quick sell. The industry as we know it today. Oh, and the selling of games in chunks! Fuck off! (1 Hour ago)
