Apparently they preloaded the PC ver last night for today, then decided to unlock it last night instead.

Meanwhile, Gamestop Downloader still hasn't given anyone their copy. *sigh*

Not bothering to support them anymore, methinks.

Anyway, who's playin' this one?

(I stand corrected, just got my key.)

Considering I have only just heard of it in this thread, no. But I'll look in to it and see about buying it once the price drops enough.

There are plenty of people without keys, like me. Their forums keep crashing from people voicing their displeasure.

I got my key around 9 am today. Too bad I was at work and couldn't start the download until 5 pm. I just finished downloading the high res texture pack, so I'm finally ready to play the game.

Got it later today and downloaded the game and high res pack. Really liking the look and feel of the game. But I think I'm gonna stop for now and work through Darksiders 1 and 2 instead.

I caved and ordered it. I was going to hold out because of Darksiders II and Dark Souls.

They are out at later dates this month (in UK). So hopefully i can get through Sleeping Dogs before then.

Getting a key for it on the 17th (tomorrow). Heard only good things about the game so far.

TB also did a nice review on it:

Sweet. Finally got it downloaded. I like the 'sidequest' where the guy tries to mug you bahaha Face, meet stairwell.

Man, I am on the fence on getting this. Just afraid I'll get 5-6 hours in and completely lose the drive to complete the story - always been my problem with GTA. Is the story engrossing enough to keep interest?

Where's the HD texture pack on Steam? When I click on the DLC page, I only get "There is no downloadable content available for this game.".

edit: Never mind. It was region locked. When logged on with a US VPN connection to unlock the game a bit earlier, the hd resolution pack was available under dlc page.

Kinda stupid to region lock a free DLC on Steam, especially when the game itself isn't locked to the region :/

Played this baby for about six hours straight. The only thing that stopped me, was this happening: http://i.imgur.com/jwYNo.jpg

Restarting the game I found out there's an 1.3gb patch avaible, so hopefully that it will fix that.

But other than that, I have no complaints. Game is extremely good, with nice story, solid gameplay and nice visuals to come with that. Enjoying it far more than I enjoyed GTA IV and its expansions.

Have played a ton of this game already :)

It doesn't bode so well for my sleep schedule.

Is it me, or is the hand to hand combat initially really damn hard? I just started playing the game, and I am on the first real mission after being shown your apartment where you have to fight some Dogeyes or whatever they are called at some Warehouse, and seriously I just keep dying. Was I supposed to do other missions prior to taking on the real mission?

Also have to say it is really messing me up driving on the other side of the road. :laugh:

So far really digging it though.

Just an update, I was just a little impatient with the hand to hand combat. Settled down a bit, and took out the guys pretty easily.

Really is a pretty damn good game overall. My one and only complaint so far is the draw distance does not seem to be the greatest, but wondering if this is just how the consoles can handle the game itself.

It sure will be.

The only open world game I've ever seen on a console with good draw distance is Just Cause 2, but that's because it's very simple in regards to "towns/cities".

I think Infamous' draw distance is pretty good overall.

Honestly this may in fact be the worst draw distance I have seen on an open world game ever. It does not totally ruin the experience, but does break it some.

I still have problems with the drug dealers, but that's it. So I run them over with my car before engaging hand to hand :rofl:

I'm quite pleased with the experience I've had after a few hours of gaming, I've gotten easier into it than I got into GTA IV, which took quite a while.

I like the fighting quite a lot especially the enviromental takedowns, the only let down so far is the driving. The handling isn't feeling as good as it could have, but I'm getting used to it.

Im playing it on the PS3 and it's an amazing game like you said, and yes the driving isnt the best, I also found the camera while driving does some weird things too.

I've finally sat down and had a proper session on the game and i just love it. I'm really enjoying the story, although i've been pre-occupied with side missions. The way it is going, it is going to get much worse for Wei i think.

I've finally got to grips with the melee combat. Once you learn the types of fighter, you get along with it much easier as you plan how to attack someone. Running and throwing someone off a bridge/cliff never gets old.

I agree with everyone on above, the driving is a bit naff. The driving reminds me of Saints Row.

I also really like when you complete a certain mission it can sometimes unlock collectibles on the map. At the moment i have the locations for Jade Statues and health shrines.

It actually reminds me of Just Cause 2. I'm wondering if they used its engine (and improved it, of course.)
