MMA Legend GSP Is 'Impressed' With Sleeping Dogs' Performance

GSP is not totally impressed with the performance with Sleeping Dogs, the video game formerly known as True Crime: Hong Kong. GSP, or George St-Pierre to his Mum, is arguably the world's best mixed martial arts practitioner, and he's been drafted to help with some of the combat in the upcoming Sleeping Dogs.

“Working with Square Enix has been an incredible opportunity,” said St-Pierre, in a statement I can't help imagining in GSP's unique French-Canadian accent. “I’m really impressed to see how the hand-to-hand combat in the game is shaping up – it’s been a great experience being involved.”

It makes perfect sense — GSP is currently recovering from knee surgery, and what does one do when they're recovering from some sort of ailment? Video games. That's what. Normal people play them, but GSP just casually gets involved in development. He's just that good.

“When it comes to professional fighting, names don’t get much bigger than GSP,” said Square Enix London Studios general manager Lee Singleton. “We are thrilled with the expertise that GSP brings to Sleeping Dogs"

We wonder just how much GSP will really bring to the game, which seemed to be in an almost finished state when I saw it at E3 (under the name True Crime: Hong Kong) almost two years ago now. I have the distinct impression George just hobbled around the studio telling people he was either "impressed" or "not impressed" with aspects of the game's performance.

They should have gotten Carlos Condit on board instead I reckon.


    I can picture it now, you get to the final boss, you superman punch him, take him down and out wrestle him for 45 mins. Credits roll.


      A genuine simulation of the Ultimate Hugging Championship?


        Not impressed by your performance.

    The game was nearly finished back at E3. They even had ads for it everywhere on news sites saying it was coming soon. Did they triple the length of the game or something?

    GSP: "The combat looks good, but I think it would be better if all enemies were wearing spandex"

    2nd best, hes not quite Anderson Silva. Still Im glad to see a positive MMA article in Kotaku. Personally Id love to see the Diaz brothers in the next GTA, that would be hilarious.
