Sleeping Dogs

Here is what's next on the DLC front for Sleeping Dogs

A fighting tournament on a hidden island, you say?

As previously expressed by United Front Games, there's plenty more downloadable content planned for Sleeping Dogs across PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. While much of it is the obligatory cosmetic- and item-focused stuff that many of us aren't concerned with, there is at least one more substantial add-on on the way.

It all starts on November 14 with the Dragon Master Pack, which is essentially a combination of five separate pre-order packs. United Front is also releasing the Drunken Fist Pack, the Square Enix Character Pack (which looks rather funny), and the Gangland Style Pack.

What seems the most interesting is the Zodiac Tournament Pack -- it introduces new gameplay to Sleeping Dogs. The premise revolves around an island off the coast of Hong Kong that has fights to the death, because of course it does. Beyond a pair of outfits, there's supposed to be multiple arenas, new enemies, bosses, and cutscenes. Pardon me while I rewatch Enter the Dragon.

Dragon Master Pack
Featuring five pre-order packs in one, the huge Dragon Master Pack is the ultimate collection of killer content for Sleeping Dogs, adding high-speed highway shootouts, martial arts monks, police patrol missions and more. Each of the below packs are included, also available to purchase separately:

  • Triad Enforcer Pack
    It’s a high-speed shoot-out in Triad Highway; armed with a high-capacity machine gun, fight a tide of Triads… after your head. Death by 1,000 Cuts puts you in a brutal fight club taking on the Triads with a razor-sharp golden cleaver. Wear the Triad Enforcer outfit for added Face and more punishing damage.
  • Police Protection Pack
    Catch criminals like a true SWAT officer with the Police Protection Pack. Unlock the exclusive High Speed police mission featuring the SWAT outfit, SWAT Police Cruiser car and SWAT Assault Rifle.
  • Martial Arts Pack
    Unleash the power of the Shaolin with the Martial Arts Pack. Unlock the Shaolin Warrior outfit (with increased melee damage), the Shaolin Showdown mission and Wing Chun dummy decoration for your safe house.
  • GSP Pack
    Dress like Mixed Martial Arts champion Georges “Rush” St-Pierre with this collection of shorts, t-shirts and bandana, and devastate your enemies with GSP’s signature flying punch. Also adds increased grappling and throwing damage.
  • Deep Undercover Pack
    All the style of an undercover agent. Unlock the Plain Clothes Detective outfit (with a reduced heat penalty), the Undercover Police Ghost Car and a CB Radio for your safehouse.

Drunken Fist Pack
With the Drunken Fist pack, Wei unleashes this exclusive fighting style. While in combat, filling the face meter will enable Wei to drink from a flask of potent alcohol and perform unique special moves and powerful counters unavailable to the sober man!

  • Rediscover a classic fighting style with this unique outfit!
  • Sway like a drunkard, hit like a mule…
  • Enter the Drunken Stance and perform special moves and counters

Square Enix Character Pack
Become a silent assassin, augmented warrior or king of chaos!  Wei Shen dons new disguises in this pack, with three new outfits and three new weapons from Square Enix's Hitman, Just Cause and Deus Ex games.  Each outfit includes its own buff and signature weapon.

  • Hitman outfit
    Agent 47’s suit grants reduced attention from the police and comes with a silenced Silverballer.  Assassinate your enemies with stealth, Hitman style.
  • Deus Ex outfit
    The Sarif Industries armor reduces gunfire damage by 33% and comes with a futuristic, fully automatic combat rifle.  This technology really is decades ahead of its time.
  • Just Cause outfit
    The Rico Rodriguez custom outfit allows you to hijack vehicles from a greater distance and comes with Rico’s signature pistol, which can fire explosive shells.  Liberate those drivers at high speed!

Gangland Style Pack
Get Wei Shen freshly inked-up in a trio of tattoo schemes in this alternate costume pack. Topple the Triads in street style with a Japanese Yakuza, Russian Mafia, or Maori Mongrel Mob tattoo, each with their own buff.

  • Yakuza style
    Painstakingly applied with the traditional 46 needle irezumi brush, this tattoo will slow your heat rate by 50%
  • Russian Mob style
    A complete history on your skin, increasing gun accuracy by 50%
  • Mongrel Tribe Style
    Leave no doubt which side of the law you are on with a 40% melee damage increase

Zodiac Tournament Pack
Join Wei Shen for the fight of his life in the second gameplay-extending add-on pack.  Invited to an exclusive tournament on a hidden island off the coast of Hong Kong, Wei must overcome the best-of-the-best as he takes on fighters from across Asia in a fight to the death. The Zodiac Tournament invites you to become the dragon and unleash your fists of fury!

  • An exclusive new island off the coast of Hong Kong, featuring multiple themed fight arenas, numerous new enemies, bosses and story-extending cutscenes
  • Two new unlockable outfits featuring new looks and powerful new fighting moves

Heading off to Spiel in a bit. A whole lot of games there, just of the cardboard variety. I love me some board games.

Finally finished The Witcher 3. Definitely one of the best games I've played in my 30 years or so of gaming. Now onward to Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain.

MGS Online Day 3. I have 3 character up to level 10 now, one in each class. They're all pretty handy, but I do miss the scout's mark speed the most on other classes.

The SW: Battlefront is pretty and has great sound design, but the gameplay is so shallow and has seemingly no depth! If the full game is like this I will be disappointed.

Dear Playboy: Love your video game coverage, but how about you start making some topless unboxing videos? Seeing someone unwrap a copy of Call of Duty is boring. Seeing a topless Playmate unwrap a copy of anything is awesome!

In happier news, Level-5 is already talking Yo-Kai Watch 2's Western release, and better/worse yet, they're considering amiibo support for the series! And hey, if they can't get Jibanyan into Smash, that'd be one way to get the West's attention.

I drank a glass of Ovaltine for the first time in years today. It was nice. Like drinking a glass of my childhood, complete with ignorance, embarrassing angst, tears (so many tears) and night terrors. Ah, the good 'ol days.

[img][/img] This is just depressing. Digital classics on consoles are such a great idea, but it's like not a single company wants to really go through with it.

I recently beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow again, but this time I played on Hard mode from scratch. Outside of dying a few times due to me being an idiot, and enemies hitting harder, it was actually easy. Like really easy.

Today I replated bacteria that I made take up a plamid hopefully stitched onto the genes generatlight. Taken from other dead bacteria and put into a non glowing species, to make it glow. Fucking microbiology is the best.

It seems fairy farts are a fragrance, a soap, incense, a vaping liquid and a kind of nail polish. I'm clearly in the wrong line of work and need to eat more chili.

Just tried 'The Last Of Us' on PSNow Trial, only to be told... 'Something went wrong. Try again.' Game-appropriate error message or quickie plot-summary?

I hate when people say crap like "I admit that [thing] in games is problematic, but I still enjoy it" because it's an underhanded way of contradicting your own views while convincing yourself that you aren't a hypocrite.

Well shit. I knew I was more than likely going to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront (cause you know, giant Star Wars nerd and all) but holy cow, the beta is fucking great! I need the full game like, now.
