I was a little bit mean about Sleeping Dogs last time I saw an advertrailer for it. The message I took away was ‘this is a game in which men will hit one another in a generic setting’. In what I can only assume is a response to that post, the developers have released a new video in which they talk about why they chose Hong Kong as the location for the game, taking time to explain the details they’ve tried to capture, the variety of the place, and the fact that exploration and idle wandering are possible in between the bopping and chopping. Let’s take a tour.
My interest is piqued, which is quite an achievement at this time on a Monday morning. Normally it’s still on my pillow, burrowing its face in the memory foam of apathy.
