Yet another Police chase

Is it me or is there something wrong with this Police chase?Is it me or is there something wrong with this Police chase?

You start the game in your apartment and when you leave your apartment there is a parking garage right across from you. To get a vehicle you can talk to the attendant and he will retrieve one for you. Or...

There is usually a Vespa scooter clone parked against the wall. I like to hot wire the scooter and take it. Not only do I get to enjoy its slow speed and the high pitched whine of its engine, half the time its owner is working on it and I get the pleasure of hearing him curse at me as I drive off. At the speed of a fast walk. Yet he has never chased me.

The other night after driving down the stairs to get to the nearest road I accidentally brushed against a Police officer. Surprisingly my scooter didn't fall over. Unsurprisingly I started yet another Police chase. I seem to get chased by the Police a lot. I am pretty sure I am playing the game right but I must admit I am not positive. Anyway...

There I was being chased down the street (again) on my scooter when I noticed that the Police on foot were catching up. I was never escaping them on the scooter so I realized I had to switch cars.

I jumped off of my scooter and ran to the nearest parked vehicle. I then ran around the vehicle to the right side where the steering wheel is located. I quickly used my slim jim (earned earlier in the game) to break into the van and drove off.

Still chased by the Police.

This is how I learned that the vans in Sleeping Dogs are not much faster than the scooters in Sleeping Dogs. I am not sure if the van was electric or powered by angry raccoons but I wasn't getting rid of the Police in this vehicle either. Just to embarrass me completely the Police started chasing me from in front. See the picture at the top.

I swear I heard one of the cops ask me if I was going for the title of Hong Kong's stupidest criminal before he recognized me and started laughing.

Fine, this wasn't working. I needed to find yet another, hopefully faster, vehicle. So yet again I jumped out of the vehicle and ran for a parked car nearby.

The Police Convention that was now escorting me decided that they had had enough. No third vehicle for me. Every single one of them drew their service weapons and opened fire.

Remember how I compared the Hong Kong Police to Butch and Sundance in my last Sleeping Dogs Diary entry? Anyone remember how the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid ends?

This Police chase ended just like that.


The Battlefield 1 expansion In the Name of the Tsar is available free for three more days. I think I now have two free expansions for a game I don't own. Maybe if I hit all the expansions I will pick up the game itself!


Great, your heart graph is giving me a heart attack. Thanks.


Good to know that someone cares
