Sleeping Dogs

PC-specific features for Sleeping Dogs detailed

Team Fortress 2 goodies are certainly appealing, but that's far from everything Sleeping Dogs has in store for PC gamers. United Front Games has broken down the PC-specific features in a blog post, including a high-resolution texture pack, plenty of optional graphical features, and key remapping.

For an overview, check out the embedded video. It doesn't cover all of the specifics, but it does run through the highlights. I've never really been one to pass on a game's console release because it wasn't pretty enough, except when we're talking open-world titles. There's simply too much to be gained.

Follow the aforementioned link or continue reading for the bullet points.

Replaying Tales of Symphonia for the first time in years, I only just now realized how random the plot is. Our goals are decided at Lloyd's whimsy, while we get major revelations just 'whenever'. Still a good game, but I'm proud to be #TeamBatenKaitos.

Today at work, I made a reference to the DK Rap in one of my news pieces. Any day that I get to do that is a good day.

Everyone's playing MGSV...and I've just arrived in Skellige in The Witcher 3. At this rate, I'll get 'round to MGSV when the PS7 arrives.

That moment when you look at your backlog of games...and it looks back and you and says "What the hell man? you have over 100 games on this list!". I feel guilty...

We need a Dtoid RPG that stars Mr Destructoid, Gardevoir, Macho Man Randy Savage, and MATT DAMON. The hub zone will be Nekro's dungeon.

The Witcher 3 is 30% off on GOG.com, if you thought it was a bit expensive at launch. You get store credit too.

Realized I've turned on my PS3 in the past month or two only to watch Mario cartoon DVDs. I really need to get around to playing something - anything - on it.

Listening to Studio Ghibli Collection at work https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_WbO_LPXDo Reminds me that my dad really liked Howl's Moving Castle. He's retired military and serious most of the time but rather enjoyed its fanciful world.
