86. Once you're a badass Triad Boss/Undercover Cop who is on the hunt for the guy responsibles for killing your best friend, a shotgun blast to the shoulder in close range is nothing more than a scratch.

@Ace20A: that's pretty spoilery. Already beat the game and the storyline isn't the best, but still

You can use spoiler tags by clicking "more" at the right corner of the post text. Like so

16. Against popular opinion, Cantonese is NOT the main language in Hong Kong

Are they mostly speaking Mandarin? I was wondering about that, but I'm also a stupid American who can't tell the difference.

No, the Hongkongers do speak Cantonese in daily life. But in Sleeping Dogs, seems like everyone speaks English 80% of the time.

@Bigandtasty: Yeah, you're probably right. But still, you've got to admit that there hasn't been an open-world title with such good story for a while.

Aww, this tread only got to 87. Guess I'll continue.

88. As a known leader of a feared triad, shop keepers will still refuse to sell things to you if your face is not appealing enough to them.

89. Buy as many cars, clothes and shoes as you like. Amass millions upon millions of extra dollars in your wallet. But no matter what, you are never allowed to own a motorboat. You'll have to settle for easily stealing various conveniently placed boats whenever you feel like it.

90. There are security cameras all over Hong Kong, but the only way for the police to access the footage is to show up on site, beat the crap out of everyone around, and hack into the camera themselves.

69. Women in Hong Kong are usually open to sex on the first date, but are rarely interested in second dates.

92. There is nothing suspicious about a man dressed as a Thai Warrior wielding a machne gun going 100+ miles an hour on a motorcycle down the sidewalk, also using on coming traffic as ramps is usually fine too.

93. Secret offshore gamblers are fine with betting for sex-trade slaves, but won't wager more than $5000 a hand.

I ate pork buns for the first time tonight based solely on my desire to feel whole.

105. One thing missing from this game is the radio options similar to what was in Saints Row 3 where you can select the radio stations you want to hear or not.

106. The game can get insanely cheap & screws you over when fighting a group of dudes (for a drug bust), while locked on targeting someone & one more hit will kill you, moving in such a way that a sign will be between the player & the character meaning you're literally blind at what's going on, get hit & die.

#132 Posted by Hailinel (24799 posts) -

@fox01313: What are you talking about? You can change radio stations.

107. If you just held a gun to Mrs. Chu's head, don't turn your back to her. You idiot.

Never use the lock on in Sleeping Dogs.

I think he means that you can completely turn off radio stations in Saints Row 2 and 3, and he wants that feature here. Sure, you can change, but there is no way to ensure that you will never hear them at all when getting into a random car.

110. Winston's mom probably has OCD.

After you meet Winston's mother in the game don't leave the restaurant, just watch her. She cycles through animations that just have her cleaning the kitchen.
