Suffice to say that I am excited about Sleeping Dog’s DLC.
I kept telling my nephew (as we were playing it) that it would be cool if Sleeping Dogs had an undead upgrade. Guess what? It is now going to have one.
Just in time for Halloween, as this DLC is set to drop October 30th, consider your return ticket to China as fully punched.
If you’ve played Sleeping Dogs, then you realize that it has had some really lame DLC packs come out that don’t really help the game play at all (as far as extending it). I cannot imagine buying any of packs for any reason, and I kept waiting for a reason to get some DLC. If you have been waiting too, then you are in luck. It is finally here.
This is not just any kind of undead. This is Chinese undead with glowing eyes. This means, it is basically Wei Shen vs. the forces of Big Trouble in Little China. However, not to be outdone by any kind of undead monster, Wei Shen will be packing, not only guns about something far more useful. Wei Shen will be sporting lighting fists because of some magical tea (Egg Shen style!). Wei Shen will have all the power he needs to defeat the undead in awesome ways.
Therefore, it is time to pack your bags and travel back to China. It is time to kick some evil undead butt and help save China from its fate. Wei Shen is ready, are you? See you on October 30th when I will be live streaming this title when it drops.
My first test stream was of Walking Dead Episode 4. Which I loved, and I wanted to get my first play through recorded so I could hear my own reactions to things (which is hilarious). I have technical difficulty because the sound was echoing, so I turned off the sound to the game. Unfortunately, you can only hear me talking. This is a full play through of the episode, so don't watch if you are planning to play later. However, if you want to hear me cuss, and mention how hard it is to play and talk, then watch these videos on my original twitch account. http://www.twitch.tv/outcast00096/b/335115750
Anyway, best part about this game is that I've killed a lot of players with the basic weapon, when they've spent money on a lot heavier tools than I have. I'm sure they don't like that. Anyway, check out the highly choppy stream here - http://www.twitch.tv/themissiledropkick/b/335524963. Follow me there, if you wanna catch me on the live streams of the game. I'll be posting it to Youtube as well.
Why is it not as good?
The fighting is not as well done. It is extremely hard to block weapons or thrown weapons unlike River City Ransom which can make fighting difficult.
There are no new moves to unlock via books. This was easily one of the best features of River City Ransom, you only get new moves by leveling in Scott Pilgrim.
It just doesn't advance over RCR in any shape way or form.
However, this is a solid game that I enjoy. It is fun and I enjoy playing it. RCR is a better game though in all respects.
Major problem: there isn't a move you can mistake for AFRO circus. My brothers and I used to call that move AFRO circus because it was funny. It is actually ACRO Circus.
