Beat the crap out of everyone in Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping Dogs is my, uh, underdog of 2012. I've played the game a couple of times now and everything I've seen thus far has been great. The thing that's impressed me the most is the combat mechanics, refreshing as open-world games tend to have bland or boring fighting systems.

Oh and what do you know?! Square Enix and United Front Games just released a brand new trailer detailing the fighting system of Sleeping Dogs. It's kind of funny seeing the main protagonist, Wei Shen, killing the f*ck out of everyone. You know, seeing as how he's a cop and everything.

There's a lot to Sleeping Dogs detailed in our last preview that you should check out. Sleeping Dogs will be out August 14 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
