When i try to run the game from Steam all i get is the Steam launching message then nothing, just wondering if anyone else had this problem and if they had a fix?

I've had that problem with another game, I just restarted Steam and that seemed to fix it.

Maybe try launching the sleeping dogs .exe directly instead of through steam

Check integrity.

Close and restart Steam.

Turn it off and turn it back on.

Check drivers.

Fix yourself a sandwich.

Go to a bar.

Go skydiving.

Seems stupid, but try restarting your computer.

Doing so will invoke the Rite of Banishment and purge any phantoms interfering with your game.

Don't forget to play Law of the West, and shoot everyone but the doctor.

If you're confused, they're referring to the Quick Look for Nightmare in Northpoint DLC.

Go to the properties for it in Steam, and verify dat integrity. Also restart Steam. Maybe try restarting first.
