In the tough streets of Hong Kong, you’ll need all the money that you can get. It doesn’t matter where it comes from; all that matters is that it is yours.

As you play through the main story of Sleeping Dogs, you’ll earn plenty of money that can be used on food, cars, and bikes. There isn’t much to it, but it still feels nice having the coolest and fastest ride around. It can be fun going to the garage and having a plethora of cars and bikes to choose from, rather than just the stock options available to you at the start.

If you’re planning on having dozens of different cars, you’re going to need to get a little creative with how you’re bring in cash; that’s where we come in.

Sleeping Dogs

Show Me The Money

There’s a few different ways of collecting cash, but finding lockboxes is the most consistent way to do so. With a 100 lunchboxes scattered around the city, you’ll have more trouble finding them than you will with them running out. These are something that you might have trouble finding throughout the game, as they are scattered and often somewhat hidden from plain sight.

You’ll have to explore down alleyways and scale rooftops with your Triad parkour skills to find the loneliest of lockboxes hiding behind crates. Once opened, you will be rewarded with a small amount of cash found within the box. It isn’t much, but if you find enough of them, it adds up quickly. There’s nothing wrong with finding dozens of small increments of cash, because that’ll sure add up quicker than spending more time trying to get one big pay off.

Once you’ve become a higher level, you’ll find that once you get close to lockboxes, they’ll appear on your map. This worked so well that I was usually able to trigger their appearance from the road while driving around. It’s easy enough to use the map to know where you’ve been and where you haven’t, so you can just work your way through each part of the city until you’ve cleaned out that second and can move on to the next.

Madden NFL 13

Ultimate Team isn’t new to the Madden Franchise, but it hasn’t played as pivotal of a role as it has this year before. It’s front and center this year. With the average Madden player skipping a year or two between releases, it might not be something that you are immediately familiar with, but that’s okay because we’re here to help you pick the ultimate team.

Not Your Average Walk In The Park

Unfortunately for most players, Ultimate Team in Madden NFL 13 isn’t as easy to jump right into as some players might have hoped. It isn’t meant to be though, it’s a deep, football simulator that puts you in charge of both playing and managing a team, and that’s no easy task. You will have to be prepared for the challenges that come with managing a team.

Let’s get this out of the way; you aren’t going to have a very good team at the start. In fact, your team will probably be pretty bad. That’s not a terrible thing though, it gives you the opportunity to learn and build your team at a competitive pace. You will be able to learn about drafting and trades between other players who are also trying to build their ultimate team. There is more thought that needs to be put into it than any other mode in the game, even franchise modes.

Guild Wars 2 Beginner Tips -- Welcome To Tyria

Guild Wars 2 is a sequel, and the inevitable question that comes with any sequel is, “Do I have to play the first game to understand this one?” In the case of Guild Wars 2's story, the answer is no. But if you want a Guild Wars history refresher or want to know just what kind of world you're getting into with Guild Wars 2, we've developed this handy guide of who's who, what's what, and where's where in Tyria.

Guild Wars 2 takes place 250 years after the events of the first Guild Wars, and as such there is very little story-wise that connects the two. The Elder Dragons have awoken since the time of the first Guild Wars, and now hold all of Tyria in their terrible grip. These dragons are not mere beasts, either. They are unstoppable forces that embody chaos and defy understanding, much like the Old Ones and Outer Gods of H.P. Lovecraft.

The enemy of my enemy if my friend is a lesson hard-learned by the races of Tyria, and now the majro races stand united against the larger threat. The feline warmonger Charr may have been your first enemy back in the beginning of Guild Wars, but now they're a playable race. Speaking of, let's take a look at all the races of Guild Wars 2. Since any race can be any profession without any bonus or penalty, you're encouraged to pick the race that seems most interesting.

Guild Wars 2 Engineer Profession Guide -- Tinker With Power

We've put together this Guild Wars 2 Engineer profession guide to get you up to speed on the most mechanically inclined class coming to ArenaNet's massively multiplayer role playing game. This handy guide gives you all the most important info about the Engineer from Guild Wars 2 at a glance.

You Should Play An Engineer If: If you want to play a tinkerer and long-range damage dealer, the Engineer is your profession. Engineers wear medium armor so they're hardier than other professions, and the random properties of their elixirs make for an interesting time in combat. Plus, Engineers are the ones who get flamethrowers and turrets! Pew pew!

Guild Wars 2 Mesmer Profession Guide -- The Maestro Of Illusion

We've put together this Guild Wars 2 Mesmer guide to get you up to speed on the most mind-bending profession coming to ArenaNet's massively multiplayer role playing game. This handy guide gives you all the most important info about the Mesmer from Guild Wars 2 at a glance.

You Should Play A Mesmer If: If you love controlling the battlefield (and other players) with your abilities, the Mesmer might be for you. Mesmers use abilities to summon Illusions to control other players, as well as to confuse and disorient them. The profession is great for solo gamers thanks to the additional help you get from your summoned minions, but in general, Mesmers offer more of a challenge than most Guild Wars 2 professions thanks to their advanced mechanics. If you want to play a profession with a higher skill cap, the Mesmer is one of your best bets.

Guild Wars 2 Elementalist Profession Guide -- Tyria's Splendid Spellcasters

We've put together this Guild Wars 2 Elementalist guide to get you up to speed on the most magical Profession in ArenaNet's massively multiplayer role playing game. This handy guide gives you all the most important info about the Elementalist from Guild Wars 2 at a glance.

You Should Play An Elementalist If: If you want to assume the role of a mighty wizard, casting all sorts of spells to decimate your enemies and protect your allies, the Elementalist is for you. Instead of weapon swapping, Elementalists can change their elemental attunement at will, focusing on raw fire damage one second and switching to a more defensive, water based attunement the next. They're described as a jack-of-all trades, and are perfect for anyone who loves caster classes.

These Guild Wars 2 beginner tips will help you get your adventures in Tyria started on the right foot. Since Guild Wars 2 is such a massive game, we wanted to help make your experience a little less overwhelming. With these easy tips you'll be leveling faster, earning extra gold, and taking advantage of the great ways that Guild Wars 2 differentiates itself from other MMORPGs. Let's get started.

Guild Wars 2 Tips For Beginners »


 

  • Make sure to buy all the three gathering tools from a merchant as soon as possible. These include the mining pick, logging axe, and harvesting sickle. They’re really cheap and offer two benefits: Gathering items nets a ton of experience and the items you gather can all be used for crafting other items later on.
     
  • DETAILS: Guild Wars 2 Warrior Profession Guide -- The Masters Of Weaponry
  • Equipping different weapons in Guild Wars 2 changes which abilities you can use, so when first starting out, try out every weapon combination to see what you like best and to see what’s most effective against certain types of enemies. 
     
  • Combat in Guild Wars 2 is dynamic, meaning you can move around and dodge enemy attacks. Enemies hit pretty hard in GW2, so instead of tanking them head on make use of the game’s endurance mechanic which will allow you to dodge any incoming damage. To do so, you can press “V” when an attack is incoming, or you can double-tap in any direction.

Warriors can wield a large variety of weapons and assume different roles in combat based on what they've got equipped. They're perfect for solo gamers thanks to their great survivability and mobility.

Guild Wars 2 Hands-On Preview

With our complete Guild Wars 2 beginner's guide, you'll be equipped with everything you need to know to get a head start in the world of Tyria. While things will certainly feel familiar to MMO veterans, especially if you played the first Guild Wars, there's quite a bit of different nuances to Guild Wars 2 you may not be familiar with. Be sure to read through our whole list to make sure you know how to get the most out of Guild Wars 2.

Be whatever you want to be.

There are no racial bonuses or penalties in Guild Wars 2. Likewise, every race can play as every profession, or class. If you want to be a giant, musclebound, horned cat who wears pretty dresses and casts illusion spells, go ahead. If you want to be a plant person who summons the undead, you can do that. There are no limits or incentives beyond you doing what you want, and what you think looks fun.

This applies to professions too. Every profession can heal itself, and every profession can reliably deal damage, so the roles of tank, healer, and DPS no longer apply. Don't think in terms of what role you want to fill, think of how you want to play. If you want to shoot at things with a bow, choose the Ranger class. If you want to be sneaky, be a Thief. I personally like handling business up close and personal, so most of my characters are melee-oriented, as opposed to the distanced spellcasting of Elementalists or summoning of Necromancers.
