ABOUT SLEEPING DOGS
Developed by United Front Games in collaboration with Square Enix London Studios, Sleeping Dogs is a gritty open world cop drama set in the vibrant city of Hong Kong. Taking the role of undercover cop Wei Shen, players are tasked with taking down one of the world’s most fearsome criminal organizations from the inside – the Sun On Yee Triad.
Offering players an island packed with action, every street corner, market stall, harbor dock or city skyscraper can become an opportunity for intense shoot-outs, adrenaline-fuelled street races and intense, brutal martial arts combat. Featuring an intuitive and imaginative combat system, Sleeping Dogs empowers players to perform an extensive set of martial arts moves, single-handedly taking on numerous opponents. Players perform bone-crushing kicks and combos, vicious counters, and a cinematic set of environmental takedowns making use of countless real-world items from circular saws to phone booths, incinerators to refrigerator doors.

@aphex187: That's like saying all the enemies in L4D are all the same. They are looking to introduce more modes similar to L4D. I kid you not some of the music sounds like the Swamp level in L4D2. (4 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: The animation is super realistic. A tip I learnt the hard way, if u have an SLI setup you will need to map Vermintide to Witcher 3's profile using Nvidia Inspector for it to work properly. (7 minutes ago)
@jmd749: yeah cheers I always shop there ;) A guy I know said it gets boring and that the enemies are pretty much the same throughout? Tbh though he was one hell of a whiner when it comes to games (8 minutes ago)
@aphex187: You can get it on the cheap here :) [url] (12 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: It's more character studies. But that doesn't mean there is no story. I love it. Waiting for season 2 to release in Belgium. (5 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: indeed. The show is about questions, not answers. How people handle a life changing event. That is the story. The acting is just perfect. But it's not for everyone. (5 Hours ago)
@jmd749: I loved every video of Vermintide that I saw, haven't had the chance to play it yet, but definitely plan to do so in the future. The combat and the animations look superb, and the game fun. (5 Hours ago)
