#1 Edited by Monkeythumbz (23 posts) -

Hello there, my name is George K and I'm the official Community Manager for Square Enix London Studios. As you are no doubt probably aware, today marks the the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences' 16th Annual D.I.C.E. Awards. These awards recognise the year's best videogames, online entertainment, outstanding individuals and groundbreaking development teams that have propelled the advancement of the entertainment software industry.

We're overjoyed that Sleeping Dogs has been nominated for these supremely prestigious awards in the following two categories:

  • Outstanding Achievement in Story
  • Action Game of the Year

We urge you you watch the D.I.C.E. Awards LIVE on Machinima's YouTube Channel, 7:00 PM PST to see how well we do and to see which games pick up these highly coveted awards. Thank you for your time.

PS: If ever you have any Sleeping Dogs related questions, feel free to drop me a PM as that's the most sure-fire way of grabbing my attention or, if you prefer a touch of the melodramatic, summoning my electronic presence.

Your game was an extremely fun Chinese GTA, I'm happy you're happy and congratulations on the nominations! Also thanks for the link I've been trying to find a place to watch it.

Do you know where I can find an archive of the event?

Well deserved, first open world game to keep me interested in all activities since San Andreas.

This is because Wei Shen is a dangerous man. And he ate a pork bun and became a whole man.

Clearly you need to make a Luchadeer skin for Wei Shen now.

Sounds like his name is Bolo Santosi and he likes to play it rough. Or whatever the hell that woman said.

There's a luchador mask as part of the 100% free Community Gift Pack DLC, if that's any help?

You're a poet and you didn't know it.

@Monkeythumbz: Congratulations on the very very well deserved nominations! I hope that the team wins either award (or both!)

Sleeping Dogs was such an amazing surprise & I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my 30 hours in Hong Kong :-D

I sincerely hope that you guys will get a chance to make a sequel sometime, perhaps with Wei Shen joining Interpol or something, or moving to South Korea or perhaps even mainland China for more Dragon Kick fueled adventures! :-)

Sleeping Dogs is an incredibly well designed game and is packed with great writing. It deserves to be recognized.

Sleeping Dogs is awesome. Watching Vinny play Sleeping Dogs is even better. That's all I have to add to this discussion.....

Oh, and 'grats on the nominations. Duh.
