Your First Look At Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition

about X hours ago from

When Sleeping Dogs came out in 2012, it had a lot going against it. The title had been through development hell and people weren’t quite sure what to expect. Sliding right in between Saints Row: The Third and Grand Theft Auto V, Sleeping Dogs was a pleasant surprise and sold 1.75 million copies in its first seven months.

Square Enix is giving it (and you) another chance at it with an upcoming Definitive Edition. It’s coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, running at 1080p on both, and comes with all of the available DLC. It will also be available on PC.

Roll7 Announces OlliOlli2: Welcome To Olliwood

Roll7 is starting a new skate session, this time under the cameras and bright lights of Olliwood in OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood on PlayStation 4 and Vita.

The side-scrolling/runner skateboarding platformer's debut earlier this year on Vita and PC was fast fun, and the sequel pushes the envelope with bigger ramps, hills, and tricks – all set to the backdrop of what looks like a variety of movie sets. New moves like 540 shuvits and darkslides have been added, and reverts, manuals, and grind switching also open up the gameplay.

The game contains five new worlds (with 50 amateur and pro levels), as well as 250 new challenges. Daily Grind, Spots and RAD modes return, and they will be joined by a new mode called Combo Rush. This is 4-player local splitscreen multiplayer.

Everything You Need To Know About Shadow Of Mordor Before Taking On Sauron’s Forces

A new trailer serves a as a primer for the story, Talion and his wraith companion, rune upgrades, and the Nemesis system.

If you haven’t been keeping track of Shadow of Mordor, by far the most valuable information is how the Nemesis system works. On new-gen systems and PC, enemies will remember your encounters. Since Talion can cheat death (thanks to the assistance of Celebrimbor), this might include an Orc or Uruk that has gained power by vanquishing you.
