We heard last week from an investor that big budget games are required to sell over 5 million units to break even meaning that Tomb Raider’s current 3.6 million means it is looking like a commercial failure.
There have been some leaks, and I’m not talking about your broke ass roof or plumbing. Apparently the teaser for the new Sleeping Dogs has been leaked as well as some PlayStation 3 trophies.
Sony’s PlayStation Blog updated yesterday, letting everybody know what games would be coming to the service – and the list has made me really sad. It’s not because the game’s that you’ll be getting free are terrible; in fact it’s quite the opposite. They’re mostly fantastic games; the problem is I have them all already.
Everybody loves them some action, just last night we were watching The Expendables 2 and I loved the crap out of every badly written line of it. The same thing applies to action games, we don’t care about the story, we just care about the ass kicking! However, we are fortunate to have gotten some great action games this year, most of which had an amazing story and/or art direction. The best out of all of them just happened to be…
If there’s one thing that gaming attracts, it’s talent. Skilled people from all walks of life have contributed to this medium in one way or another, and that’s something that really shines in the voice acting department. So, who had the best vocal chords to create a believable performance this year? That answer, was easy as the award goes to…
We’ve had plenty of sequels as usual this year, but nowhere near as many rule of three games as what 2011 saw. But mixed in with those twos, threes and fours were plenty of new games, ranging from action through to puzzle. But out of all those new intellectual properties, only one of them could be the best, and that brand spankin’ new future franchise is…
The twelve deals of Christmas is back! Or, erm, actually, it’s been back for a few days now. And if you haven’t dropped by to check in on your Playstation 3 Network in a while now, you may have missed out on a few good deals. My bad. Anyway, there’s still quite a few games left to go until the sale ends. Let’s take a look shall we?
Sleeping Dogs is one of those under the radar games that really brightened up 2012 for me. Great voice acting, solid controls and a decent story, all combined to make a game that had far more good ideas than annoying ones in place. I finished it a while ago though, and it’s been gathering dust since then. Until I heard about the supernatural DLC that was on the way for it, which piqued my interest once more. And there’s more content for the game on the way apparently. A whole six months worth in fact.
Like just about everything else, open-world interactive Hong-Kong action-film Sleeping dogs will be getting a dose of the undead, zombies, with its first story-based DLC.
OK. So Gushing Garth has done his usual “Ah Luffs It!” at Sleeping Dogs – and also as usual I’m here to sour up the environment. It is, they say, a talent (or not, I forget). Let’s get a few preliminaries out the way: I love the game. It’s beautiful, bold, innovative, engaging. It has excellent voice-acting – aside from one or two minor moments, where my brows were so furrowed it looked like they were duelling; the game puts GTA IV, Saints Row and others to shame in many respects but in other places, it is severely lacking.
True Crime: Hong - er, Sleeping Dogs flushes out the horrors of organised crime in a refreshing, cinematic look at the open-world over-the-shoulder action-adventure genre. But is its Kung Fu strong enough?
Geoff was given an early hands on with Sleeping Dogs back in early April and he absolutely loved it so when another opportunity to get our hands on Sleeping Dogs arose I jumped at the chance and have been Kung Fu kicking, shooting and hacking my way through the world of Sleeping Dogs for the past few weeks.. these are my thoughts.
Sleeping Dogs is the upcoming sleeper hits (getit) from Square Enix that is releasing later this month and I’ve been spending the last few nights getting my teeth into it and digging through the huge open world that the game is set in. The plan is to have our detailed preview up on Monday so stay tuned for that but until then we have another treat for you.
With Gamescom only two weeks away and Geoff still to organise his visa things in the office are starting to get a little tense and some choice words about Germany diplomacy and Pretoria are now speckled across the walls. However there is still some good Gamescom news, take for example this stunning line up that Square Enix have announced.
The more I see of Sleeping Dogs, the more amped I get for that game. It looks like some killer fun, wrapped up in some takeaway violence and action, which will most likely leave me hungry for more an hour later. Kinda of like one of other favourite gaming gems, Just Cause 2, which has managed to sneak into this title.
