Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition

Was watching someone play this and thought it looked cool, and decided to give it a go since it was only a couple of quid on Steam. So far I am liking it and have been comparing it favourably to the Grand Theft Auto games. Even the more recent ones, which to be honest I feel like still largely carry the same problems as the older games. But to be clear what I really mean is the GTA games haven't exactly been for me - obviously they are very highly regarded by a lot of people and that's fine.

I also can't make the fairest comparison to GTA 5 because I kind of forgot a lot about the game. But I think it not being too memorable for me is telling anyway.

Everything in Sleeping Dogs just feels snappier, with missions in particular flowing a lot better. Grand Theft Auto I guess goes more for 'realism' so there's a lot of tedium. I've also been finding the missions themselves a bit more fun. They're probably easier but there's a lot less waiting around, and less of a requirement for exactness.

Sleeping Dogs has a decent substitute for objective markers, which in a lot of modern games keep your eyes trained to a pointer on the HUD or minimap. Here arrows pop up as holographic signs on the road, which isn't exactly conducive to immersion, but it means you can more easily take in the sights of environment - which look quite nice - and also keep a track of where you're going.

I have got so much time for Sleeping Dogs. I think I've finished it 100% twice now, once on PC and once on PS4 and had a blast both times. There's something about the Hong Kong setting and the focus on melee combat that captivates me in a way that GTA doesn't.

Twice, damn. I was watching someone 100% it not too long ago too. The Hong Kong setting is really cool for an open world game. Is fresh.

I've been playing a little bit of Shining Resonance Refrain. Was only a quid so couldn't resist. Really liking the look of the game so far.

Not playing, but I just picked up an issue of White Dwarf which comes with a code for 12 games & 2 lots of DLC with some decent value due to Vermintide II being in it for instance.

I might give the first Total Warhammer a bash.

Vermintide is a pretty good game and I'm sure the sequel is good as well.

I have the first Total Warhammer and it's a solid Total War game. I tend to lose the energy to finish any given campaign as the win conditions are just a bit much but there's fun to be had there for sure.

Played a lot of Humankind, to see defeat in the end, a good 600 turns in.

It's more simple than Civ in some ways then more complicated in others as I couldn't launch my nuclear missile as the British had the 3rd uranium deposit which I couldn't buy off them as they hadn't unlocked mining of it.
