@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.

i see what your saying when you say that,

but mannnnnnn i would totally play a sleeping dogs 2 or sleeping dogs dlc with a vinny costume on though :P

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)

i think it could work, heck if this dude can get into saints row 3 for free then vinny should get into sleeping dogs dammit! :P

Considering the number of bugs he's found, they probably want him for QA

#55 Posted by Tajasaurus (970 posts) -

This is the greatest thing. There is nothing more pure in this world than Vinny's love for Sleeping Dogs.

I would settle for a mission in the next Sleeping Dogs where the only objective is to pick up the purse.

As absurd and potentially great as Vinny based DLC would be, I would think they probably just want to invite him to see their next game or some other normal boring industry business. Or maybe buy him a cake as thanks for all his coverage of their game.

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!"

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

Since I didn't see anyone ever reply:

Vinny DLC incoming.

Black t-shirt DLC?

Sleeping Dogs 2 police radio broadcast about famed crime lord Maximiliano Caravella?

edit: Still have no idea why those Art game guys sent the game loaded with a drawing of Brad. Was Brad the first person to play the game on a Happy Hour or Live Show? Didn't it turn out that Vinny was actually the most artistic staff member?

i believe it was a case when the game is sent to a specific reviewer, they preloaded their ds cart with a drawing of them ( as one of the guys from kotaku had the same style drawing done)

This is amazing!

#65 Posted by Winternet (8051 posts) -

Hey, Sleeping Dogs, get in line. I too want to get in touch with Vinny and I've been waiting for almost a decade.

I know. So why did they specifically send it to Brad, is what I'm asking.

i believe it was said a while ago that brad is like their PR guy for giantbomb, in that he make sures games arrive at the office and stuff.

@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 :)

#80 Edited by NegativeCero (3039 posts) -

I just saw this and it just makes me smile for the possibilities.

AWESOME!, Vinny is regarded my many as the favorite staff member, and the videos with him just having fun with your guys game is regarded as some of the best content on GB, very awesome to hear you guys understand how these guys roll as well. really hope something comes out of your conversation with the staff.

also if i may humbly make a suggestion in the event that you guys are working on another open world china based action game for possible next gen systems ;) ,

i hope you guys evolve the melee combat in your games to this levels of awesome, as playing sleeping dogs, the fighting in that game is so satisfying that imo evolving it to this degree seems like the next step.
