title="Permanent Link to GOG ‘Adrenaline Rush’ event now live, promises free games">GOG



Nice try, Steam. You may have a bewildering selection of cheap games and a bizarre (and seemingly rigged) competitive point gathering system, but you aren't giving away free games. GOG are. For instance, get to their front page before 11:59 am EDT, and you can secure Omerta: City of Gangsters for free. And if you've missed that, the store is planning more giveaways throughout the day. Update: Torchlight is currently free on GOG until 9 pm EDT! Go grab it.

"Right now, on our front page, you can find 30 amazing FLASH DEALS at once," explains GOG's news page. "They're coming your way in a great tidal wave, with new deals popping up every single hour. The time has also come for our first special FLASH GIVEAWAY ... Grab a free copy of the gangster strategy title, Omerta: City of Gangsters. You can find it among the stream of other flash sales! That's only the first of the giveaways we have planned for today, so make sure to keep an eye out for more throughout the Adrenaline Rush day."

The free games are being seeded into the big list of flash sales that are rolling across GOG's front page. Keep an eye out every couple of hours, and you're likely to pick up a few free treats before the day is done.

Hi guys!

You may notice that you get a small update (about 24 MB). Just so nobody gets confused: This update is just in preparation of the upcoming MAC-Version of the game.

Interesting side-fact: With the introduction of the MAC-Version, Omerta will also feature cross-platform multiplayer and cross-platform cloud saving.

Many greetings,
Chris

title="Permanent Link to Omerta: City of Gangsters getting a free update today">Omerta: City of Gangsters



The number of much-needed soup kitchens and speakeasies has plummeted, and now the City of Gangsters wants you back to do your thing in this bad town. A free update's making its way to the game today, fleshing out both the tactical and tycoon aspects. Check out this trailer for some gameplay from the updated version, or to get your foot tappin' to some ragtime—whichever grabs your fancy.

Starting today, launching Omerta: City of Gangsters will trigger an automatic download of the new update, which aims to overhaul the interface and cover mechanics. Additionally, there are new sandbox game modes, new gangs to swindle in the single-player campaign, new multiplayer maps, and not-so-new-but-newly-updated multiplayer modes. Rival gangs will now be a little less passive, making more of an effort to defend their distilleries and laundrettes—while muscling in on yours.

In our review, we found Haemimont's stab at organized crime well-conceptualized but simplistically executed. Hopefully this update means no more being headshotted by an infuriatingly colorfully-dressed man through thick cement pillars, letting us rob our damn banks without distraction.

Product Release - Valve
Omerta - City of Gangsters - The Arms Industry DLC, all new content for Omerta - City of Gangsters is Now Available on Steam!

Deadeye Hastings is a notorious marksman killer and a crafty thief. He has served a decade in jail in England and the royal authorities were relieved to find out that he departed the islands to become a problem for the US government.

Most people look in the face of Johnny Hastings and think he is a monster but little do they know what kind of monster he is. Deadeye Hastings has always had problems with self-esteem and with keeping calm under pressure. He is constantly trying to compensate this with reckless demeanor dragging his comrades into unpredictable situations. Anyone who wants to have dealings with him should mind that he is far from reliable but Hastings himself cares little about what people think about him - he just wants to have fun!
