Sleeping Dogs' newest story DLC Year of the Snake treads a more serious route than the previous story add-ons. There are no martial arts tournaments or ghost cat men from hell here, but instead a new slice of police work for Wei Shen, as he tracks down a doomsday cult set on destroying Hong Kong on the stroke of Chinese New Year and the beginning of the Year of the Snake.
Sleeping Dogs' newest DLC is a car so advanced and deadly it makes Knightrider's KITT look like a second-hand Cortina. Check it out in action in this video.
Where Sleeping Dogs' last DLC, Nightmare in North Point, plumbed the depths of Hong Kong horror for its source material, the next piece of story-based DLC for Square Enix's open world action game takes its inspiration from Bruce Lee's classic Enter the Dragon, right down to the shaky 70s camerawork and funktastic soundtrack.

We loved Sleeping Dogs, despite all the terrible things the producer threatened to do to us, so we were already excited about the prospect of some story-based DLC. When we found out that Nightmare in North Point was horror-themed DLC based on scary old Hong Kong movies that included hopping vampires and supernatural cat men, well, that was the eerie icing on the spooky cake.
Welcome to our first Show of the Week! Each Friday we pick a game of the week to talk about, and in our inaugural episode that spectacular honour goes to Square Enix's open-world Triad-em-up, Sleeping Dogs.
We also share your comments, some exciting Halo 4 news, our favourite open-world game cities, and an unfinished studio full of dangerous contextual takedown opportunities.
There's an amazing bit in the Tony Jaa movie Tom Yum Goong where Tony gets stabbed. Instead of bleeding everywhere then dying, Tony goes absolutely mental and breaks all the limbs of everyone in the room. It goes on for ages. It sounds like a man alternating between shouting and noisily eating a bag of crisps.
