    Winner 1 for Sleeping Dogs: n3rdf1ght3r

    Winner 2 for Sleeping Dogs: THE_EGG

    Hitman Absolution Winner: NHKS


    I want to assure everyone that donating the other code did not give NHKS any additional chance at winning a game, its all pulled from Random.ORG and was strictly coincidence.

    You guys have until Noon Sunday (prefer to get it done ASAP) 1/20/13 Pacific time to PM me with your Steam name and send me an invite on Steam (same username). I will collaborate with NHKS to get the second key delivered to the appropriate person.

    Prize 1: Sleeping Dogs
    [​IMG]

    Prize 2: Hitman Absolution
    After winning Spec Ops The Line in my previous giveaway, Hellfire turned right around and donated Hitman Absolution. That's how you pay it forward :respect:
    [​IMG]

    Rules:Read them Carefully
    Cannot already own the game No Exceptions whatsoever!
    Need to have been a member since October 2012 or earlier.

    Prefer that the last 10-20 winners sit out, but in the end its your call.
    Cannot be on my Ignore List :D

    How to Enter:
    Up to you. Creativity always helps. All I ask is that you put forth more effort than 'Im In', 'In', 'Looks interesting', etc otherwise you earn an Instant DQ.

    Also, No Youtube links or pictures.

    Winner
    When interest has run its course, or I otherwise feel like it, I will post notice with a deadline to enter and a timetable for a winner to be drawn. The winner will be announced in this post and in a new post in the thread with a 36hr window to follow up, else another winner will be drawn and a new 36hr clock started.

    These are two games I have been dying to get my hands on. Apparently Sleeping Dogs popped up for $4.50 on Steam the other day as an error, but Steam allowed it. I've heard nothing but good things about the PC Version of both games, and would absolutely love to try either one out.

    I'd like to enter this for Sleeping Dogs as I missed out on the steam sales and it is still over $60 in retail stores here. I'm still paying off car payments so if I won a game in this giveaway, it would be uber awesome, and save me heaps of money. But that isn't really an excuse to not buy sleeping dogs though is it? Only that I shouldn't be looking at all the great games that are currently out :p

    Thanks theonedub for allowing me to join this giveaway :D

    Not entering.... just want to say

    Thanks to theonedub for an AWESOME giveaway, as well as a thanks to hellfire for donating Hitman!
    You deserve a whole lot of :respect: :respect: :respect: :respect: :respect:

    This is going to make some super happy winners! :D

    I don't think the Dub will hold that against you (I certainly wouldn't ;)), the Metro code was nothing, as there were plenty to go around.

    I don't see why not. The eligibility rules are laid out in their entirety in my first post so anyone can check and make sure they are good to go.

    Great giveaway! This is serious stuff. Already own Sleeping Dogs, great game and would like to enter for Hitman. My son played the series but we ran out of money lately so was unable to grab this one too. OK, I admit it, we got ourselves a tablet, I'm ashamed... gaming on a tablet is worse than beer without alcohol.

    I'm in for either games!

    Hitman is one of my favorite series. I've been a fan since the first game, imo its the best assassin game around, Seeing gameplay videos, The new contracts mode is what caught my eye the most. I want this game so badly :banghead:

    and about Sleeping Dogs, Its really my kind of game. I like Hong Kong Action movies, and this game fits the description of a Hong Kong Action Movie!

    I haven't got the chance to buy these games it in the sales because of other priorities but if given the chance to have it on steam, I would definitely play either one.

    I'd like to enter for Sleeping Dogs. I am big fan of True Crime: Streets of L.A. and True Crime: New York City. Sleeping Dogs is the spiritual successor to them and they even got the aimbot fixed (option to disable it at least) that were uber annoying in the True Crime games. It's the only beat-em-up style game I love. I kept getting into the wrong side of cars though. :ohwell:

    I already own Absolution--awesome game for those that like third-person shooter titles that require thinking. I was a skeptic when there was a rumor floating that Hitman 5 would be based on Hitman the movie. My hopes plummeted. I was pleasantly surprised when it was nothing like the movie. :D

    I'm not going to beg or try give you a sob story.

    Those games are 2 games I would not normally buy, as they fall out of my usual play styles. That doesn't mean that I wouldn't like to try them.

    Nice giveaway theonedub!

    Except the first Hitman and "Contracts", I played and liked HM pretty much. I remember playing "Silent Assasin" on the Gamecube and I have replayed Blood Money on PC not that long ago.

    So I am joining this giveaway for Hitman: Absolution.

    Thanks for this awesome giveaways!

    Entering for Hitman Absolution.

    Never played both games and also reviews and forum talks said that both games runs better on AMD cards, so I would like to prove that with my brand new 7850 :cool:

    What's Agent 47 holding there in the pictures? A screwdriver?
    A game where you can kill people with screwdriver. Just perfect :D

    sleeping dogs looks cool. kinda getting tired of the bf3 and cod style. would be nice to try a different game out.

    probably not enough enthusiasm to win, but i have never won any of the giveaways here. such is life.
