January 2014’s First Games With Gold Title

Posted on January 4, 2014 by Joshua Rust

While many gamers have started to question the integrity of Microsoft’s Games with Gold program due to offering games that are years old, such as last month’s Gears of War, it seems they are listening to the community and are starting to offer up newer games. The most recent game that was released through Microsoft’s Games with Gold was Shoot Many Robots, which is a fun cooperative arcade title. This month’s release, however, sees you as an undercover cop that is trying to take down one of Hong Kong’s most dangerous groups: The Triads.

Nightmare in North Point is Sleeping Dogs first DLC with a story campaign. Not only is it coming out October 30th just in time for Halloween, but it’s style is absolutely beautiful!

Posted on October 19, 2012 by Les Major

Undercover drama Sleeping Dogs is 50% off on steam this weekend for $24.99! From the creators of the True Crime series this open world action game takes you to Hong Kong. For half price this looks like a fantastic deal. I’ve been eager to check out Wei Shen’s story and it looks like a great time to join in.

Payday: The Heist is also on sale for 75% off at $4.99. This team co-op game focuses on fending off the cops as you try to make a daring bank robbery. It’s also a free play weekend for Payday so if you want to see what the gameplay is like before you commit, it’s available until 1pm Sunday PDT.

I can’t help but feel there’s a theme here. Both games are on sale till 10am Monday PDT.

Sleeping Dogs Won’t Be So Sleepy With Six Months Of DLC

Posted on August 13, 2012 by Seung Lee

It’s a recent business practice that I can’t stand: creating “new” content for purchase immediately after a game releases. Capcom has been guilty of doing this for a while (see Street Fighter x Tekken), and now Square-Enix is going to join in on the trend. Sleeping Dogs will have six months of planned DLC, which is already frustrating to hear.

I can appreciate wanting to extend the lifespan of your game, but not when the DLC in question seems to consist of nothing but clothing packs and weapon packs. You can expect a number of downloads for Sleeping Dogs, such as a Retro Triad Pack that features a “killer old school outfit with its own player buffs and funky kung-fu van.” Then, in September, there’ll be a high-speed Racing Pack and a SWAT Pack. So, the DLC seems to be somewhat cosmetic and unimpressive for those who simply want to play the game. I suppose if you really enjoy Sleeping Dogs, that you might want to check this DLC out, depending on how much it costs.

See Square-Enix’s press release on the matter by reading more.
