LittleBigPlanet Karting

The rite of passage for a successful platform series is to take a stab at a kart racer. However, as this franchise has always promised, ambitious authors can use the content engine to make whatever they'd like.

Sleeping Dogs

A Rambo movie isn't Saw, something that revels in watching bodies be eviscerated and in the pain of the victims of violence. The focus is on a romanticized, idealized action hero capable of taking on all comers. This to me is the violence of Grand Theft Auto, Doom, or Call of Duty. The violence in Sleeping Dogs falls into that tradition -- that is, until it doesn't.
