Posted on March 13, 2013 by Joshua Rust

505 Games and Overkill Software have announced that a sequel to Payday: The Heist is on the way in form of Payday 2.  CVG got a chance to preview the game and had this to say about it:

“Payday 2 provides a unique spin on co-op first-person shooting, and we love the idea of becoming a career criminal with friends, working our way up from lowly convenience store stick-ups to mass-scale bank robberies.

Steam Sales This Weekend Let No Sleeping Dogs Lie

Posted on October 19, 2012 by Les Major

Undercover drama Sleeping Dogs is 50% off on steam this weekend for $24.99! From the creators of the True Crime series this open world action game takes you to Hong Kong. For half price this looks like a fantastic deal. I’ve been eager to check out Wei Shen’s story and it looks like a great time to join in.

Payday: The Heist is also on sale for 75% off at $4.99. This team co-op game focuses on fending off the cops as you try to make a daring bank robbery. It’s also a free play weekend for Payday so if you want to see what the gameplay is like before you commit, it’s available until 1pm Sunday PDT.

I can’t help but feel there’s a theme here. Both games are on sale till 10am Monday PDT.
