New Sleeping Dogs DLC Set To Include New Island, Enemies, and Cutscenes

If fighting vampires and evil spirits via the last Sleeping Dogs DLC wasn’t your thing, then perhaps partaking in an Enter the Dragon style fighting tournament will be right up your alley.  The latest addition in the rather extensive DLC schedule of Sleeping Dogs will be a new island which will see everyone’s favorite undercover cop Wei Shen compete a deadly fight tournament off the coast of Hong Kong.

Sleeping Dogs Goes The Horror Route With Nightmare in Northpoint DLC [Video]

It may be a common theme now since past endeavors have proved successful as Sleeping Dogs is the latest game to release a Halloween/horror themed DLC add-on.  Rockstar Games got the ball rolling two years ago with the release of RDR: Undead Nightmare and then Sucker Punch released the massively successfully Infamous 2 add-on Festival of Blood.  Now Square Enix and United Front Games are stepping up to the plate with their own brand of horror in Sleeping Dogs: Nightmare in Northpoint.

LittleBigPlanet Karting Hands-On [E3 2012]

There are some franchises that deserve spinoffs, reboots, remakes, whatever you may call it and then there are others that should be left alone since they’re perfect as is.  With a franchise like LittleBigPlanet that’s almost genre in itself due to the creations that are capable of being built within it, there didn’t seem like much sense to do a LBP spin-off revolved around kart racing. Can’t we already do kart racing through a nifty user creation so what’s the point of throwing down $60 for a new game?

The High-Octane Driving Action Of Sleeping Dogs Is Highlighted In This New Video

The main source of action in Sleeping Dogs may be using a bit of old-school punching and kicking to either subdue perps or entirely put them out of commission.  Using some martial arts moves to defeat an enemy is fun but there’s something special about blowing up a car whilst riding a motorcycle and then seeing said car flip and turn before it ultimately goes boom. Opting to present a diverse gameplay experience, Sleeping Dogs is set to feature equal parts melee combat and driving action, the latter of which is on display in this new video.

LittleBigPlanet Karting Is Finally Revealed And It Looks Like Fun

Revealed last month in a quasi-official capacity, the revelation that LittleBigPlanet would receive a spin-off game in the form of LittleBigPlanet Karting was something that people didn’t know what to make of.  Would LBP Karting be a fun game or was this Sony’s first step in milking the LBP franchise now that Media Molecule seems to be moving on from the series to produce a next-gen PlayStation IP?  It was of course hard to imagine what LBP Karting would look like but we now have evidence which points to the game being simple LBP style fun.

Sleeping Dogs Hands-On [GDC 2012]

The streets of Hong Kong can be a beautiful place but at the same time there’s an underbelly that may not be entirely rosy and instead is violent and simply lawless.  There are two sides to everything and there are definitely two sides to a person, which is the case in Sleeping Dogs.

New Sleeping Dogs Trailer Is Full Of Drama and Action

Last month we were treated to the surprise reveal of Sleeping Dogs, the game formerly known as True Crime: Hong Kong. Still developed by United Front Games but under the guise of Square Enix, Sleeping Dogs’ return was eventful and thankfully didn’t result in immediate disappointment.  With a stunning live-action trailer serving as the introduction to the game, the actual gameplay didn’t disappoint either when that was finally shown as the mixture of established open-world action elements combined with new stylistic choices resulted in a marriage that we hardly see in games.

True Crime: Hong Kong Has Been Redubbed Sleeping Dogs [Updated]

A few of us may be kicking ourselves for not fully expecting this, but it appears that the recent Square Enix trademark Sleeping Dogs isn’t for a new Kane & Lynch installment but is instead the new title for the resurrected True Crime: Hong Kong.  

True Crime: Hong Kong Lives On Thanks To An Unexpected Savior

These days if a game gets cancelled it’s completely dead and the only way its legacy lives on is if a developer or publisher opts to utilize some of the tech or mechanics for a completely different game.  Sony may have cancelled the PS3 title Eight Days but the tech that SCE developed lived on in other games while Sony opted to not resurrect the title later down the road.  In news that normally wouldn’t be expected to drop on a boring Monday afternoon in the Summer, Square Enix has revealed that they have picked up the rights to the cancelled True Crime: Hong Kong.

United Front Games Issues Layoffs But Things May Not Be Entirely Grim

As it was sadly expected, Vancouver based developer United Front Games has issued a series of lay-offs throughout the studio in the wake of Activision cancelling True Crime: Hong Kong.  The cancellation of True Crime: Hong Kong is still settling in amongst gamers, and the shock waves sent out by the cancellation of the game have finally made their way to United Front Games.
