Shhhh: Omerta First Up In GOG Giveaway

If rambunctious crowds have suddenly taken to the streets around your home, chances are it's because of the GoG.com summer sale. The site has kicked things up a gear by naming the next portion of its event ADRENALINE RUSH. I hate using the word 'event' but sales are about more than discounting products, which is why the Steam one seems like a weird competition that…

There’s Now Moreta Omerta

Somewhere out there is an Omerta: City of Gangsters fan. He's furiously whacking his F5 key with the butt of his Tommy gun, hoping that his favourite and only source for Omerta news, Craig "The Craig" Pearson, will fearlessly risk breaking the code and write something about it. Stop putting a beating on it, Jeff. Put the gun down and come out with your hands…

Omerta – City Of Gangsters review

I'm not a violent man by any means and that should make me very uneasy about my fondness for gangsters, but I far prefer them to other murderous avatars. I'm thinking pirates, ninja, warfighters and bald space marines. That was reason enough to draw my eyes to Omerta: City of Gangsters when it was first announced and I've finally played through the campaign of this…

Breaking The Code: Omerta – City Of Gangsters

Omerta: City of Gangsters is out now and I've spent many an hour conquering Atlantic City, building an empire of bullets and booze. I'm not quite ready to tell you wot I think so I thought I'd use the posting of the launch trailer as an excuse to spill some secrets in your ear. I expressed my disappointment with the demo shortly after playing it,…

Prohibited Thoughts: Omerta – City Of Gangsters Demo

Omerta's demo is odd. I've been hoping that the game will deliver on its turn-based gangster shenanigans ever since it was announced, but I expected mild disappointment as none of the pre-release media had entirely convinced me. A demo seems like the perfect solution, providing a playable sample and helping my wayward mind to form some basic conclusions. That hasn't happened. Instead, I'm still left…

Vol-Steady As A Rock: Omerta – City Of Gangsters

Here's some Prohibition news: I watched Lawless last year and even though it's paced badly at times, I enjoyed it and marvelled at Shia TheBeef doing some proper acting. Keep the lad away from Spielberg and Bay and he might have a bright future in the business called 'show'. Or at least a less obvious one. Omerta takes place in the big city rather than…

The Gang Way: Omerta – City Of Gangsters

The first time I heard about Omerta: City of Gangsters, a fellow games journo described it to me as "prohibition era X-COM". My brain went into overdrive and I trekked across several crowded convention halls, each larger and noisier than the last, in order to sip from this holiest of grails. Flappers, jazz maestros, nickel-a-drink barmen and sharply dressed gangsters combating an alien invasion with…

First Look: Omerta – City of Gangsters

We sent Rich Stanton in undercover to find out where all those valuable gangster cliches were coming from. This is his report. What do you think is the most memorable line in gangster movies? Gabriel Dobrev is the CEO of developer Haemimont Games, and giving us a brief spiel before we get a shot on Omerta: City of Gangsters – he plumps for the the…

Splendid Prohibition: Omerta – City Of Gangsters Trailer

Kalpyso and Haemimont have released a footage-driven trailer for Omerta - City Of Gangsters. What is presumably an offshoot of their most recent Tropico engine is actually looking pretty good for the big outdoor city stuff, but perhaps a little less shiny when it comes to dealing with the nitty-gritty of combat and gangster-hobbling - although it will probably please most of your to learn…

Boss: Kalypso Reveal Omerta – City Of Gangsters

The first footage of Kalypso's Omerta - City Of Gangsters can be seen below. Kalypso report that it's "a strategy game focusing on the activities of organized crime in Atlantic City in the 1920s", and it's looking like an improved version of the engine they used for the recent Tropico games. The boss manages his criminal resources and has a familiar real-time strategic overview of…
