OK! Let’s get down to business. Inaugural Modern Borefare game club presents: Sleeping Dogs

Vicious Pjurahead, What was your initial reaction to the game?

Vicious Pjurahead

I was surprised how into it I was right from the start.  Up until your post here on Modern Borefare I never paid much attention to it.  So many games come out and this one got lost in the shuffle of the more popular titles. My first sitting I must have played 4.5 hours.  I kept wanting to see what direction it was going in and how it differentiated itself from other sandbox games. The amount of sidequests available just in the first hour made me giddy..  I love when a game surprises me the way this one did.

Really? Because I didn’t find it to be that surprising at all.  At least not initially.  Maybe I’m not as far as you.I’ve probably played 6 hours total so far. But when you’re talking about all those side quests…man, those get me stressed out.  For some reason i assume there’s a “right” order to do them in and it bums me out if I get it wrong.  But I guess there really is no wrong in a sandbox.

I think I was just so surprised because I knew absolutely nothing about the game. Didn’t stop me from beating the game this afternoon. Bloody as hell

IR

That’s fair.  I knew enough about the game that I knew I wanted to buy it and play it. The various reviews definitely helped sway me as well.You beat it already?  Ok, now we have to go off track a bit and discuss this: did you enjoy it? Or did you just speed through the end so you could move on to another game?

VPH

It feels like you’ve already played most games before they come out.  This game wasn’t the case. No not at all, I didn’t speed though; I have no other games lined up.  Just really got into the story and its really fast paced.

IR

Did you do all of the side quests? Get all of the collectables? Are you going to go back through the game again?

VPH

I found that the side quests were just really intriguing, all so different and quirky including everyone’s favorite, COCK FIGHTING!!! The only side quest path I completely finished was the karaoke. Did you do karaoke yet?

IR

I think I hate the karoke, but that may have to do with the fact that I hate karoke in real life.

(What kind of mischief do we get to after the jump? Only one way to find out!)

Goodbye Weekends!! ** UPDATE – ModernBorefare Game Club!**

As if I needed another reason to stay indoors.20120816-095510.jpg

Update 08.16.12,  01:18pm: It is with some excitement and some trepidation that I’m announcing the first ever Modern Borefare Game Club! The idea is that, much like a book club, a group of us (myself a.k.a the Mighty Mighty Impervious Rex, One Neck/Two Chains Vicious PjuraHead and you, Extra Handsome/Super Pretty Reader) will play the same game then start a running dialogue on it, most likely through further posts and comment section discussion.  In the meantime, to get you jazzed about our digital foray into the seamy underbelly of Hong Kong:
