Attention Sleeping Dogs players: I ISSUE A CHALLENGE TO YOU ALL

#1 Edited by AjayRaz (12418 posts) -

Wei Shen is a dangerous man. apparently he can also survive really horrible crashes and impacts without a single scratch. with this in mind, i am issuing a challenge to the fine folks of Giant Bomb. i merely ask you all to do one thing. i'm asking you all to fly.

my challenge is simple. head over to Kennedy Town, bring a fast car, drive off a certain ramp and bail out. watch Wei scream and soar through the sky and see if you can go the farthest.

around the end of the waypoint is where the jump should be.

here's an example of what you should do, and it also happens to be my best attempt:

this is some silly thing i created after messing around upon my completion of Sleeping Dogs' story mode (which was pretty awesome.) in order to participate, you require the following:

  • a device that can take video. camera, fraps, dazzle, whatever. i just wanna see it.
  • a Youtube account would be nice, too since we can see your attempt.

while not required, a fast car would be ideal, and praying at a lot of health shrines beforehand to increase your max health would help out if you happen to soar really far and take a dangerous fall.. unless you find it funny when Wei gets killed. also, the prize for getting the farthest is absolutely nothing. probably some bragging rights, but that's about it.

anyway. that's the best i could do. what about you, Giant Bomb? post your attempts and let's see how good y'all can do. the London 2012 Olympics may be over, but the HONG KONG OLYMPICS still live on.

current leader: ME, surpassing aurahack's distance

WHAT NOW, AJAY.

WHAT NOW.

#3 Posted by aurahack (2264 posts) -

Record beaten.

#4 Posted by AjayRaz (12418 posts) -

@aurahack: holy shit. okay, no problem. no problem at all. ENJOY IT WHILE IT LASTS AURA

#5 Posted by Sackmanjones (4652 posts) -

No. I said Wei Shen is a dangerous man first. I curse you

I love this idea! We should come up with a series of events that lend themselves to this kind of insanity.

I've got to remember to participate after work!

if you land on top of a moving car to help you go further, does it count?

Only way this would've been better is if when you landed he calmly stood up, took out a pistol, and popped off a clip into the sky.

#9 Posted by AjayRaz (12418 posts) -

@Lunar_Aura: hell no, though that sounds like it would make for a pretty awesome second event.

Poor Wei…

He doesn't mind. I'm fairly certain that his body is impervious to any kind of fall. A well placed bear hug from a grappler will totally wreck his shit, however.

#12 Posted by AjayRaz (12418 posts) -

@aurahack: MM MM

#13 Posted by aurahack (2264 posts) -

@AjayRaz: God dammit he died trying.

#14 Edited by AjayRaz (12418 posts) -

@aurahack: shit. okay maybe we gotta set some guidelines. getting bumped by vehicles shouldn't count, but what about deaths? hmm

edit: fuck it. for now, i think everything except literately getting pushed by a car is fine.

It's a real shame he doesn't shout "AIIIYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaa"*splat*.

#16 Posted by awesomeusername (4154 posts) -

I'm flagging this because I don't have the game and that makes me angry! GRRRRR!!! (Sarcasm) Also, I hear your Skype messages .

@AjayRaz:

I love that he's in spandex

Question,

do they have gimp masks in this game?

#18 Posted by Daveyo520 (6652 posts) -

@AjayRaz: One day I will teach you about the Shift key Ajay. One day.

team ajay for gold

This is entirely dumb... I'll have to see what I can do once I finish the story and start buying good cars...

I should probably get this game, huh?

#22 Posted by Joker369 (868 posts) -

He should shout UWEEEEEHHH!! Incredible Crisis style while flying.

#23 Posted by Kierkegaard (579 posts) -

This is a cool thread. Emergent gameplay is real, apparently. Y'all have fun!

#24 Posted by sate2801 (344 posts) -

failed :( guess my timing is not right?

#25 Posted by AjayRaz (12418 posts) -

@sate2801: finally, another competitor. yes, your timing may be a bit off. the car you're driving may also be holding you back, but i'll leave those things up to you to figure out. that shotgun bail was amazing.

thank you for participating! keep at it!

#26 Posted by aurahack (2264 posts) -

@sate2801: I was going to say how to get the timing right but I suppose it's more fun to figure it out for yourself. I had some good bails trying to get it to work. You should get a faster car, though. A Class that shit up!

#27 Posted by fetchfox (1221 posts) -

@OldGuy: Thank you, that outfit explains itself! I must try this when I finally get a fast enough car (first day of play here).

Everyday I'm roffling

#29 Posted by Bigandtasty (3202 posts) -

Here's my most interesting unsuccessful attempt. So there was a run where someone hit the freeway sign with Wei? I've got something better worse.

Messing with the radio station channels too much ruins stunts.

On my fifth attempt I got something... different. Don't know if the bail is considered too late, though.

#30 Edited by AjayRaz (12418 posts) -

@Bigandtasty: holy shit. that fifth attempt was amazing. although.. that just proves that what i've created is flawed because, well.. i can't tell how far you are if you bolted into the ocean. regardless if the bail was too late or not, it still counts.

thanks for sharing. if i can figure out some way to figure out if you beat us or not, i'll put it up in the original post.

#31 Posted by AssInAss (2543 posts) -

There should be more challenge threads like this for other games' threads. Great idea,

Like how little cover you can use in Max Payne 3. Less than 10 min.

May I suggest a way for measurement? Try to put a custom waypoint AT the jump then do the trick and then you can see how far away from the waypoint you are giving you an actual distance. In theory that sounds like it would work.

#33 Posted by AjayRaz (12418 posts) -

@Demoskinos: i've been thinking about that too. it sounds like it could work out well, but i'ma have to try it and see how it works out. i'm just thinking about changing it so it's just the best human stunt, but i'll check out that distance thingy before. thanks for the suggestion!

#34 Edited by AlexW00d (6185 posts) -

I got this, not sure if you count bikes though.

Youtube is still working its magic though so it's not yet 1080. - Oh also the sound is out by like a second, cause something went funny when I was recording.

#37 Posted by Bigandtasty (3202 posts) -

Got a second water jump and set a marker. Not sure if I placed it exactly correctly but hey, waypoints!

#38 Posted by Bigandtasty (3202 posts) -

@AjayRaz: Here's the best of yet another round of attempts, this time with a focus on avoiding the ocean. Not sure if there's any easy way to see the distance, though.

#39 Posted by AjayRaz (12418 posts) -

@Bigandtasty: how on earth did you survive that?

as i said before, i figure i'll just leave it open without any distance, but just to show off cool stunts. should prolly update that OP..

Has to be the purple baseball cap

#41 Posted by Bollard (5254 posts) -

@Bigandtasty: This game has Dream Theater? Yes!

#42 Posted by Soap (3565 posts) -

This is getting intense.

#43 Posted by Daveyo520 (6652 posts) -

@AjayRaz: It will be on Ajay.

As soon as I can figure out how to record something.
