Already garnering attention for not just the intense gameplay but the story itself, Sleeping Dogs will keep any gamer on the edge of their couch (or futon; we’re not judging).

The open-world action game takes place in Hong Kong with you as the main character Wei-Shen, sent undercover to infiltrate one of the most infamous criminal organizations. Our very own Gamer Next Door Jo Garcia had a chance to play the game and then headed over to United Front Games to talk to their Senior Producer Jeff O’Connell about the game and, yes, even fish-slapping.

The best part about this game? In Jo’s words, “You get to be a good cop and a bad cop!” That may tell us more about Jo than it does the game, but we’re okay with that.
