Mafia returns to sale after vanishing for five years

After five years of not being sold for download anywhere (and long being out-of-print on disc), the first Mafia has returned to sale. GOG this week dredged the digital bay, hauled the crime 'em up out, and chipped off its concrete boots to re-release it DRM-free. This version has an edited soundtrack with the licensed music removed, mind. Presumably music licenses expiring is what got…

Mafia 3 Trailer Showcases The Lovely New Bordeaux

The other day I sat down to clear out an old bills basket and realised The Godfather trilogy was on the telly. "I'll stick it on in the background," I naively thought to myself and, needless to say, I didn't get as much done as I'd first planned. Until part 3. Because no matter how much I want to like it, it's garbage compared to…

Mafia 3’s Move To Sixties New Orleans Is Risky But Potentially Rewarding

The Mafia 3 [official site] presentation at Gamescom felt very much like an attempt to hammer home several important changes to the series rather than an accurate representation of the minute-by-minute experience of playing. Given that this was the first public showing of the game, which probably won't see release until the second half of 2016, that's to be expected. The vertical slice shown had…

Join The Family: Mafia Mod Adds Multiplayer

Aye, Mafia III was announced last week, but what good does that do you now? The game's not even due until 2016. However, you can today download and play a near-final version of Lost Heaven MP [official site], a mod adding multiplayer to the first Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven. You and your pals could this very day be zipping around Lost Heaven, chasing…

Mafia 3’s Announcement Trailer Will Arrive August 5th

Last month a NeoGAF poster found that publisher 2K Games had pointed four domains at their own server: mafia3thegame.com, mafiaiiithegame.com, mafiathree.com, and mafiathreethegame.com. It was a baffling mystery that set alight the minds' of the world's greatest detectives and the games press. The clues were right in front of us all but what did they mean? Now we've discovered a second sign (via the Mafia…

Who Squealed? Hints Of Mafia 3

He is a funny one, that Ian Video Games. I tell you, he spends all his time on The Internet doing the strangest things. No, not like that you cheeky madam. Ian - you'll love this - he's working on a sort of a phone book for the Internet, so people can look up any website. He spends all day searching for new sites, and…

Come In: Kingdom Come Will Be ‘Very Open’ To Modding

Kingdom Come: Deliverance didn't quite win me over during a recent demo, but it certainly got me galloping toward its corner. Evidently, I'm not the only one, given that it's already made enough money to buy its own kingdom. It's preposterous with a capital Osterous, and I doubt it'll be slowing down any time soon. But maybe you're still on the fence. And that's fine.…

It Didn’t Dragon: Kingdom Come: Deliverance Funded

Nathan's excitement over Kingdom Come: Deliverance, a realistic open-world medieval RPG, has translated to Kickstarter success. The project is now funded, defeating the dragon (£300,000 funding target) with a swinging blow after only three days. With 27 days still remaining, they might be able to buy their own castle.

Mega-Impressions – Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Kingdom Come: Deliverance has kind of a silly name, but it's one heck of an intriguing prospect. The hyper-detailed historical RPG heralds from a small army of developers who once steered the creation of Mafia and Arma, among many others. Despite coming from a relatively small team by triple-A standards, the game's production values are through the roof, and the dev team really wants it all:…

Resisting The Obvious Quotes: Mafia Devs Semi-Shut Down

They might call it a "restructuring", but whatever word one applies to it, it's bad news for a venerable studio with a rich heritage. In this partial death, let them once again assume their true mantle. 2K Czech were and always shall be Illusion Softworks, creators of Hidden & Dangerous, Mafia and not enough else. Subsumed into the 2K mass in 2007 and renamed in…

Kingdom Come Promises ‘A Different Kind Of RPG’

A hyper-detailed historical RPG from the main folks behind Mafia? Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Ahem. Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a nonlinear role-player set in the dying days of the Holy Roman Empire,…

The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 2/5

Yesterday, as you may have noted, Dr Rossignol began our lecture series on the most important PC games of all time. Much like The Christmas Lectures, The Reith Lectures, and the TED Lectures, this definitive series has been a part of our institution as long as the Earth has borne stones. In this second part Professor John Walker explains the varying importanceness of a second…

EG’s Retro Sunday: Mafia

With Mafia II news due to break any moment, this week seemed a sensible time to go back and play the 2002 original. Which is what I did, and is now up to read on Eurogamer. "Mafia is still a radical game. In 2002, just a year after Grand Theft Auto III had shaken up everyone's expectations of sandbox gaming, Illusion Softworks' open city went…

Indecision Over Mafia-Developer Purchase Pun

News reaches us that Take Two have been reaching into their bag of many dollars to add another studio to their collection, buying the Czech Republic's largest developer, Illusion Softworks, creators of Hidden and Dangerous and Mafia. After the undisclosed sum was paid, all 200 of Illusion Softworks employees will be working in the cleverly named "2K Czech". Now, we wanted to write a serious…

Organised crime sequel duly organised

If you're the sort of person who goes on excitedly about how brilliant the end of Mafia was, and how it was the most mature take on the GTA-style game the world has ever seen, then you have a reason to celebrate. Its creators, Illusion Softworks, are working on a sequel, called, in a flash of inspiration, Mafia 2. To be honest, I'm not among…
