When the Definitive Edition of Sleeping Dogs was first announced, it seemed like it was going to be a console-exclusive. That’s something I believed all the way up until last week, when I visited the Steam store and happened to see it listed front and center. Being a big fan of the game, I couldn’t […]

What do you expect from a gaming review? Honesty? Objective opinion? Transparency? Something else? Whatever it is, I don’t think that list will likely include the writers lying about the game they’re reviewing, ultimately telling you that you should purchase it even if they don’t truly feel that way. If you’re someone who frequents YouTube channels and thinks […]
