Is it just my fondness of underdogs? Everybody's love for a good comeback?
I hold no nostalgia for True Crime. It was fun enough way back when, but nothing to write home about. I didn't pick up the sequel and I didn't give a shit about the 3rd game being developed, which got cancelled by Activision sometime in 2011. What they've shown up to that point did do nothing for me. Well - the project is back on and on track to release later this year - as Sleeping Dogs, published by Square-Enix. I guess many of you have seen the recent live action trailer, which is sweet, but like always seemed like wasted money to me. I still was not excited, until...
...I saw the gameplay footage included in IG Extended's Preview/Interview on youtube. I looks really snappy and snazzy, kinda similar to how Warhammer : Space Marine meshes 3rd person shooting with 3rd person action successfully. I found me liking the bad-assery of a fully fleshed out melee combat system mixed with 3rd person shooting - A LOT. Sleeping Dogs essentially attempts to do just that, in a Hong Kong action flick flavor. I absolutely am for more of that. The whole driving race bikes and shooting dudes in the face looks amazing too.
To my great surprise, Sleeping Dogs has made it on my radar - and I'm looking forward to its release. What about you guys? You aware of Sleeping Dogs and eager to see how it plays out too? Eventually even picking it up and playing it for yourselves?
