    So is this game worth $50 guys?

    i love the shit out of it

    take that as you will
    This game sounds amazing

    it's far from perfect, despite me singing its praises from the mountain high it does have some flaws

    but i love it anyway because what it does it does so well

    and that's letting me beat the SHIT out of guys and also hit them with cars

    this is a pretty good game

    I am already obsessed with the outfits bonuses and the apartment upgrades

    the combat and driving are pretty dang good

    also the guy you play is half conflicted cop half actual psychopath, which is interesting

    I just unlocked Wei's psych profile, it's an interesting read.

    Also, driving a car into the river for insurance, busting drug dealers with a security camera and learning the leg sweep move?

    All in all, a pretty good day.

    get back to me when you've found ten statues and are absolutely slaughtering guys

    the fight clubs get ludicrously easy when you can drop everyone but the grapplers in three seconds each

    Is the melee combat pretty solid in this game? Batman AA/AC has spoiled me for smooth, thug-punching action.

    You're not going to pirouette to an enemy 3 metres away or throw batarangs but the combat is pretty good kung fu stuff.

    it's based on mma a LOT

    basically anything you see one of the grapplers do is a variation on an actual wrestling move

    in fact the one where you sprawl backwards to counter is literally the first move you learn and kicking your legs back like that and dropping down like wei does is the actual way you counter it

    One other thing - screw you, video games.

    Even though I drive on the left side in real life, I'm still having to condition myself to not drive on the right side in this game.

    The correct lane to drive in is all lanes.

    This is the proper way to play video games.

    Guys

    In lots of the lockboxes you can find bits of clothing, or even full sets of clothing

    And if you beat the Martial Arts Clubs in each district you sometimes get an outfit

    These are often movie references

    So far, these are the outfits I have found. SPOILERS I GUESS? WHO CARES THEY'RE SO AWESOME
    Shen Zen - Bruce Lee outfit from Enter the Dragon
    Yellow Jumpsuit - Bruce Lee outfit from Game of Death
    Mr. Black - a black suit from Reservoir Dogs
    Manhattan Melee - Jackie Chan outfit from Rumble in the Bronx (!!!)
    The Bon Gak - Tony Jaa outfit from Ong Bak
    Hog Pen Row - Chow Yun Fat outfit from Natural Born Killers

    there's a couple other outfits but it's more things you get for story reasons that you then keep

    i really wish his last outfit, which is an all black suit and shirt, was a thing i could wear

    i love that suit

    Oh, wait

    I'm a big stupid idiot

    I got Natural Born Killers mixed up with Replacement Killers

    And I got confused by the outfit's in-game description

    It's actually
    Stephen Chow's outfit from the end of Kung Fu Hustle

    Anyone else having trouble with the controls on PC?
    Sometimes it just refuses to register my clicks
    Even out of combat I sometimes have to click three time on a simple "Enter"

    The mouse sensitivity in vehicles is also crazy high

    i think this game looks fun

    i am going to have to wait a bit though, maybe a long time, if i decide to buy it

    it looks pretty neat in trailers and offcial videos, of course

    i prefer to get my vidja game impressions from my fellow posters
    you guys seem to like it, which is good

    Wall-kicks just became my new favourite thing. Getting the final attack slow-mo for one just made my day.

    Got an influx of jade statues too, the stun follow-up and the knee-breaker are brutal, god damn.

    I just discovered my favourite thing to do. Get a motocycle, and do a wheelie while handbraking. I'm not sure how the physics of it work, but it is amazing.

    Climbing elbow strike into stun grapple is basically an "I win" combo in combat, but that's okay because it's brutal as shit

    This part kinda ruined the game for me. Well, maybe not ruined, but smudged the hell out of it. I'm all having fun, fighting mans, drivin around, learnin moves, and then I get a mission where I have to fucking (these spoilers are for a date mission, so unless something big happens, it doesn't spoil much)
    tap a phone to listen in on a girl, follow her around the city, and yell at her for seeing other men, despite the main character seeing 3 women? Then he tells her he's seeing one of them for his job when that is why he was seeing the fucking girl he is now stalking? When confronted about seeing other women he just says he'll "see what he can do" and walks off like a hardass.

    Now I just can't enjoy this protagonist at all.

    Yeah this whole bit was super weird and out of place

    But the whole 'girlfriend' element of the game seems so half-baked to begin with, that I didn't really think about it

    the girlfriend element basically ends there

    theres literally five main girlfriend missions, one for each girl

    and then that one favor mission

    yeah I think the "girlfriend" thing was pretty heavily cut from the game

    I'm guessing that stuff is leftover missions that were done and didn't interrupt the game too badly so they kept 'em

    Which sucks because Emma Stone's character feels like a very natural fit into the main story

    Is Emma Stone the American girl?

    That one actually felt natural, and I really wanted to see if that went anywhere.

    EDIT: Now I feel like that was a really dumb question, but apparently deleting posts no longer exists.

    I know, right? I can't believe they actually made a movie with a higher number of cringe-worthy martial arts beatings than Ong Bak, but The Raid pulls it off.
