@mrfluke: Hey, yeah that was me who got in contact alright! Who knew a simple Tweet would be so well received! We wanted to wait until the last Quick Look went online before reaching out to The Man so as to respect his journalistic independence. We're in conversation at the moment and I'll pop by here if/when we have something to share :)

https://twitter.com/sleepingdogs/status/311873408428277760

this is me making an observation here, they have been waiting for the last quicklook (the year of the snake dlc) to go up before getting in touch so....

again, this is just an observation with no facts behind it, but methinks they want to get in touch with vinny for like a cameo for their next thing. (whether it be sleeping dogs 2 or some more dlc) or hell maybe they just wanna hang out and do a video with vinny :P

or the pipe dream happens, and we get something alone the lines of this :o

i think this would be fine for sleeping dogs 1 considering a review is already up.

either way i like that its inevitable that everyone will want a piece of giantbomb in their stuff :P

Vinny DLC

#14 Posted by thebunnyhunter (1354 posts) -

Showdown: Vinny vs Wei! And we all know the outcome.

#15 Edited by JJOR64 (18909 posts) -

DLC where Vinny becomes a Mob boss for the Luchadeers and when you get to Vinny at the end of the DLC, you have a dance off.

#16 Posted by Demoskinos (14562 posts) -

Ill say this right now. Ill rebuy Sleeping Dogs with all the DLC if they get Vinny in as DLC of some sort.

Remember that string of side-missions where that gang member keeps blowing stuff up and generally causing a big ruckus and then you have to help him escape the cops? I'm thinking one like that but with Vinny's likeness and VO, just squirreled away somewhere as a Face mission in Sleepy Dawgs 2.

the big fat dude with the huge gold chain on his neck?

lol yep i know who your talking about :P, that would be hilarious if they just swap in vinnys face in that dude :P

#21 Edited by mrpandaman (864 posts) -

What if it was a buddy cop type of thing with Vinny for a couple of missions???

Or maybe something like "Midnight Run"?

#22 Posted by JasonR86 (9608 posts) -

Oh man. I want a really Italian-ass Italian Vinny yelling to Wei "Money! Money! Money!" and then Wei breaks his leg, tazes him, throws him in the trunk of a car, and drives the car into the ocean.

#23 Posted by Superfriend (1526 posts) -

Noooo, he´s OUR Vinny!

Don´t touch our Vinny! *Hissssssss*

#24 Posted by mrfluke (5092 posts) -

Don´t touch our Vinny! *Hissssssss*

but what if you get your own playable vinny :o , or something comes through and you get a vinny costume for sleeping dogs or for its possible sequel :o.

based on the 3 packs of dlc that came out, seems these guys are down for whatever, so lets share vinny :P

Brad Shoemaker makes a special appearance as the mission giver of the DLC, with famous lines such as:

"Oi, Wei! Som'un is goin' round causin' a ruckus around town. I need you to go rough him up a bit, aye mate?"

and

"Oi it's me Brad Shoemaker!"

and

"Aye gots som' them e-mails!"

#26 Edited by LaszloKovacs (1139 posts) -

I would reinstall this game immediately for Vinny-related content.

Oh god does anyone know what podcast it was where Jeff pulled out his inner Shoemaker? I remember bursting out laughing in the bus.

@mrfluke: I think they may want to get in touch with Vinny to see if they might be able to use parts of the Quick Looks to promote Sleeping Dogs and its DLC, because they really do come off as the best salesmen for the game.

Or, yeah, they just want to note that he's awesome. I hope that he stays away so that his future Sleeping Dogs content remains pure.

If Cheapassgamer's CheapyD can get in Saints Row 3 then the Italian Stallion can get in Sleeping Dogs.

#30 Posted by Jeffsekai (7026 posts) -

oh god yes

#31 Posted by Genkkaku (732 posts) -

This is the next logical step

#32 Posted by ProfessorEss (7281 posts) -

Who doesn't want to touch, err... get in touch with Vinny?

#33 Posted by Nictel (2380 posts) -

Sleeping Dogs sales increase exponential with every quick look :p

This is has the potential to be amazing

#34 Posted by JZ (2125 posts) -

Vinny is the new wei of the next game.

#35 Posted by cbarnes86 (546 posts) -

Vinny will be the main character in Sleeping Dogs 2, but he won't want his name in the game, so they will rename him something similar, maybe like Lenny.

If they somehow got Vinny in a recording booth and got him to do a few lines for the game, oh man, I'd buy the HECK out of that DLC.

#38 Posted by OurSin_360 (834 posts) -

I see this happening more often, given the fact that vinny is the greatest video game player ever, of all time.

#42 Posted by probablytuna (3539 posts) -

I haven't bought the DLCs for Sleeping Dogs, but if there's a Vinny-related DLC coming soon, count me the fuck in.

Sleeping Dogs DLC 5: Veni Vinny Vici

This is amazing and you should be proud of yourself.

#45 Posted by masternater27 (915 posts) -

The excitement vinny gets from playing sleeping dogs is what sold me on it. I hope he gets some vo or nod in some way.

That -is- enticing, but I do think it would almost be like Sleeping Dogs jumping the shark. ha. But, hey, maybe they could make it work. (I'm guessing this is still them interested in saying thanks or seeing if they can do something promotional)
