New Sleeping Dogs DLC Released, 'Year of the Snake'

Sleeping Dogs

Square-Enix's latest sandbox game, Sleeping Dogs, has received it's second DLC installment which is titled "Year of the Snake."  The new add-on content brings a whole new "short story" to extend the game.

Wei Shen's story continues in Year of the Snake as he rejoins the ranks of the Hong Kong Police Department in a series of new missions set immediately after the main game. A vicious end-of-the-world cult is taking root in the back streets of Hong Kong... the Cult of the Snake. Hell-bent on cleansing the city of its evils, they cannot be negotiated with as they pursue a path to their righteous salvation. With an arsenal of weapons, including teargas guns and electroshock pistols, new outfits and abilities, Wei must enter a race against the clock to bring the cultists to justice before Judgment Day.

I enjoyed Sleeping Dogs tremendously, and completed the game in just a handful of days. The previous DLC, Nightmare in North Point, was short, but a very enjoyable extra side story. You can pick up on Year of the Snake for 560 MSPs in the Xbox Live Marketplace, or $7.00 on the Playstation Network. Also, for all you achievement hunters out there, the content add four achievements for 100 gamerscore.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 Teaser

Legends- Arnold Palmer

Every year, EA Sports bring us a new Tiger Woods PGA Tour title, and each year they've tried to include more and more of  some type of "story mode" which most of it has been a look into Tiger's life, and has even gave us the chance to place as young Tiger when he was just learning his incredible golf skills. This year it seems Tiger Woods PGA Tour will be focusing on Legends, in the upcoming title, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14, and will introduce Arnold Palmer and several other golf legends as available characters.

EA released this teaser trailer today:


Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 is set to release on March 26th, 2013.

Far Cry 3 Achievement Videos


I've recently completed all the achievements for the amazing Ubisoft title, Far Cry 3, and it is no doubt one of the top 5 games of the year. There are a couple achievements that can make for quite a struggle, and I made a couple videos to help you obtain that 1000 gamerscore (or platinum trophy for you PS3 players).


Never Saw It Coming (on hang glider):
This achievement requires you to perform a death from above from a parachute, hang glider, or a zipline. If you have already cleared the game, then the zipline is out of the question. Here is my take on getting that Death From Above from a hang glider.


Poacher Achievement:
The poacher achievement requires you to kill and skin a rare animal. There are only a few of these special creatures in the world of Far Cry 3, and with our video, you'll be able to snag this achievement for yourself.
