All Articles: Omerta: City of Gangsters
First things first, Nintendo’s hard brain training game, Brain Age: Concentration Training, is available for the 3DS today. Dr. Kawashima, the master of brains himself, has promised that you’ll have a devilishly good time with the third game in the Brain Age series.
Moving on, this week’s other major release is Aliens: Colonial Marines. The Sega-published, Gearbox-developer continuation of the Alien saga has been in development for a long time, but if you’ve ever wanted a direct sequel to Aliens, this is your best chance. Pick it up on Tuesday for the PC, PS3, or Xbox 360.
Also available this week is Omerta: City of Gangsters. If you’ve ever thought, “a strategy RPG starring gangsters and set in the bootleggin’ Prohibition era would be a hoot-and-a-half,” then this PC and Xbox 360 game might be for you. It also might be for you if you regularly use the phrase “hoot-and-a-half” in regular conversation.
Here we are at the end of January and the end of the new release drought. This week is still a little short on new releases (next week will be much better), but this is what’s new in stores:
And the Rest: Three download-only games are available for PC players this week including Kalypso’s bootleggin’ strategy RPG Omerta: City of Gangsters, Paradox’s fantastical strategy RPG DungeonLand, and Sega’s kart racer Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
Kalypso Media and Haemimont Games have announced that Omerta: City of Gangsters will be available for the PC and Xbox 360 on February 12. I’m sure the publisher plans to make your local game store an offer it can’t refuse to carry it.
The two companies have also confirmed that the turn-based strategy game will be available for the Mac (on the Apple Mac Store and the Steam Mac Store) sometime in early 2013.
Finally, a new gameplay trailer is available for your viewing pleasure. Unless you’ve been prohibited from watching it.
Kalypso Media has announced that the PC version of Omerta: City of Gangsters will be joined by an Xbox 360 version when it launches this Fall. The code of silence prevents me from saying too much about the game, but I can tell you this…
Omerta: City of Gangsters for both Xbox 360 and Windows PC will place players in 1920’s Atlantic City, where they’ll spend their time building a criminal empire in an attempt to dominate the city. Players will construct, buy or take over buildings to turn them into speakeasies, distilleries, illegal boxing rings and much more, as they work to generate income. With dirty money come dirty jobs – and the game switches to a turn-based tactical RPG during blazing gunfights and elaborately planned and executed heists. Unique playable and non-playable characters will perform jobs for you, including spying on, fighting with and even fire-bombing the buildings of enemy gangs.
Tactical gunfights in 1920s Atlantic City? I think Kalypso just made me an offer I can’t refuse.
