It started out as True Crime: Hong Kong, but Activision shit-canned it mid-development. Square Enix then swooped in and turned it into Sleeping Dogs.

Thanks Ape

This one now seems likes its a wait until its in the sale then buy right away. First 1 was great like a 90s martial arts film, second one was awful.

It does seem like Square Enix are really trying to branch out in these past couple of years.

They are, I had no clue that they are doing the newest Tomb Raider game since they own the rights

To be fair, it's a subsidiary of Square, Crystal Dynamics, that are the ones actually developing Tomb Raider. Square Enix's main contribution is going to be on the publishing side of things.

Yeah, a lot of people sleep on the first True Crime game. The series just kind of seemed to get swept up and lost in the post-GTA sea of sandbox wannabes.

Do they make games anymore? I thought they had became a publisher only company a few years ago when they started buying aload of developers?

No, dude. They develop all of the Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts titles.

Yeah, Just Cause 2 is fantastic. It's probably tied with Red Faction: Guerrilla for my favorite sandbox experience this generation.

Damn i forgot about Kingdom Hearts and i guessed they passed FF onto some other company because the standard had declined drastically over the last few games.

Same here, I loved both Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2. Never really got into the other ones. My crowning achievement to this day as a gamer was finally beating Sephiroth. I hate that bastard lol!

I hope they are still planning a third one and keep it at it's roots.

Agreed :) I bought the game for the PSP but it just wasn't the same as the others

And I remember the day when I beat Sephiroth... It was 4 o'clock in the morning, I let out a loud shout and everyone woke up -.- Not exactly my shining moment haha

lol right after I hit him with the killing blow, I yelled "EAT IT BITCH!!!". It was at about 8: 30 at night. My niece was watching me but she has heard worse.

Has anyone been playing this game? (Sleeping Dogs)

It's pretty damn good, I have enjoyed so far and anyone that's a fan of Martial Arts/Sandbox games should check it out.

Yeah it's a pretty good game. The atmosphere (not the graphics but the feel of everything around you. The graphics kind of stink), the story, and the combat really made it a joy to play.
