The GMG sale was a glitch as well. The voucher was being applied as well as the credit/cash back. It should have been one or the other (according to the posted voucher terms).


lol i couldn't remember how i got sleeping dogs
but now i remember it was from this gmg thing
at least i got all the dlc (-2 packs :cry:) now too

Didn't GMG have Sleeping Dogs on sale legitimately for around $6-8 about a week ago? I wonder if people were so quick to buy because they wanted the game or because omg, pricing error, must buy!


91% off is the magic number.

definitely impulse buy for me. i just needed the dlc and it only cost me less than $4 (discounted dlc only).

that being said, i never even played Sleeping Dogs even though I have it. goes to show you the unpredictability of holiday sales and the evergrowing backlog of games that i have.

Woke up late, saw SD at 91% off, thought about it, then missed it.

I didn't buy from GMG because I was waiting for a DLC bundle. Got exactly what I wanted from this price glitch.


Even the newer two at *gasp* full price? ;)

GG had a set of good sales during their summer sale (4-weeks) in August. Tony was bringing on the hurt with the Paradox packs in May.

Yes, but buying on steam is much easier for gifting to friends. (GMG is 1 game/account too).

More to the point Sleeping Dogs is a great game, and refreshing entry in the GTA-ish genre with nicer combat system inspired by Batman AA/AC. The Hong Kong setting is both popular and yet fresh. Walking the line between undercover cop and violent triad thug adds a new dimension. How often can you pick up a game like that, under 6 months old, for yourself or friends for $5?

No comparison to Shenmue? :lol:

Tony from Amazon said that the complete edition will be added to the editor's choice at some point this month, if you have Amazon credits. It will be Origin, not Steam, tho.


I missed out on Sleeping Dogs. That's what I get for actually playing my games, lol.

Only excuseable if said game was Coconut Queen, Mission Runway, or Doom Rails.;)

Hmm, would've been nice to have gotten 91% off Sleeping Dogs. However, I got SD + all the DLC back when it was a flash sale. Paid ~$40 total. Oh well, Sleeping Dogs is lots of fun and worth it for that price. Though the DLC kinda sucks. Kinda wish I didn't buy the DLC.

I don't have any of those. :lol: I passed on Doom Rails when it was 74 cents because of the DRM. I also didn't get Hotline Miami when it was free on Amazon even though I had the opportunity. I don't think I can call myself a true CAG. *hangs head in shame*

Is anyone else having problems buying games as a gift/inventory item? I had Sleeping Dogs in my cart but when I tried to buy it to add to my inventory, nothing happened when I clicked the continue button. Had the same problem last week when I tried to buy Skydrift DLC as a gift for a friend. In the end I just used my phone and it worked there, but wasn't in time to get any of the DLC besides for NINP. Oh well... at least I managed to get the base game and the one worthwhile DLC for just over $5 :D.

I thought I had bought two as gifts but it turns out the first purchase didn't actually go through. I hit purchase and it gave no errors, but I did notice the spinning circle icon stayed up after I went back to the main page. Oh well, was being greedy grabbing two anyway.

Updated Enhanced Steam with a quick bug fix (thanks Motoki). If you have an item on your wish list, and you activate it on Steam, it will stay on your wishlist. The latest update processes your wishlist items first, then your owned items. Before, it would mark these "owned" wishlist items as blue instead of green. :)

Whoops. I mistook a previous $4.99 purchase that didn't bother to make it onto my card until today to be the $4.50 purchase.

Looks like I just wasn't charged, didn't receive it, etc. Don't really care since I already owned it and was just impulse buying to gift/trade but I really should have started raging earlier. Now I'd just look stupid.

On the plus side, my mighty $6 worth is discount DLC is secure.

For me, playing games is a way less fun than buying another game which I won't even install in next 12-24 months on awesome flash price glitch.

I missed it by mere minutes. Oh well... it'll be on sale eventually. Anyone want to sell an extra code? ;)
