@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 :)

this is me making an observation here, they have been waiting for the last quicklook (the year of the snake dlc) to go up before getting in touch so....

again, this is just an observation with no facts behind it, but methinks they want to get in touch with vinny for like a cameo for their next thing. (whether it be sleeping dogs 2 or some more dlc) or hell maybe they just wanna hang out and do a video with vinny :P

or the pipe dream happens, and we get something alone the lines of this :o

i think this would be fine for sleeping dogs 1 considering a review is already up.

either way i like that its inevitable that everyone will want a piece of giantbomb in their stuff :P

DLC where Vinny becomes a Mob boss for the Luchadeers and when you get to Vinny at the end of the DLC, you have a dance off.

Remember that string of side-missions where that gang member keeps blowing stuff up and generally causing a big ruckus and then you have to help him escape the cops? I'm thinking one like that but with Vinny's likeness and VO, just squirreled away somewhere as a Face mission in Sleepy Dawgs 2.

What if it was a buddy cop type of thing with Vinny for a couple of missions???

Or maybe something like "Midnight Run"?

Oh man. I want a really Italian-ass Italian Vinny yelling to Wei "Money! Money! Money!" and then Wei breaks his leg, tazes him, throws him in the trunk of a car, and drives the car into the ocean.

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.

@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.

Vinny will be the main character in Sleeping Dogs 2, but he won't want his name in the game, so they will rename him something similar, maybe like Lenny.

If they somehow got Vinny in a recording booth and got him to do a few lines for the game, oh man, I'd buy the HECK out of that DLC.

I see this happening more often, given the fact that vinny is the greatest video game player ever, of all time.

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)
