Gone Gold - Omerta – City of Gangsters

Kalypso Media USA announces the Windows and Xbox 360 editions of Omerta – City of Gangsters are gold for North America, and due in stores February 12th. "We are thrilled to be able to release yet another great strategy IP with Tropico 4 developer Haemimont," says Mario Kroll, Vice President, Kalypso Media USA. "Omerta – City of Gangsters will let players choose brass knuckles and tommy guns, intimidation or bribes, or a combination of all of these, to carve out their own criminal empires on the Atlantic City Boardwalk." Kalypso recently also announced an OS X edition of the game, which will support cross-platform multiplayer with the Windows edition when it follows sometime this quarter. Here's word on this opportunity to start your own boardwalk empire:

Omerta – City of Gangsters is a simulation game with tactical turn-based combat. Taking the role of a fresh-off-the-boat immigrant, with dreams of the big life, the player will work his way up the criminal hierarchy of 1920’s Atlantic City, New Jersey. Starting with small jobs, his character recruits a gang and expands his empire by taking territory from other gangsters. Eventually he establishes his own crime syndicate and becomes the de facto ruler of Atlantic City.

The player strategically manages his business and his minions in a real-time format, slowly but steadily increasing his influence over the city. The player sends his henchmen out on missions ranging from assassinating an informant, to raiding a warehouse, springing a friend from prison, robbing a bank or attacking a rival gang’s hideout. Nobody is above the law in Atlantic City, so it always helps to have a little cash handy to bribe a policeman or pay off a politician.

The turn-based combat in Omerta – City of Gangsters focuses on the tactical command of “The Boss” and his henchmen. Cover and stealth are essential parts of any shootout in the game. Finding the best vantage point to gun down an enemy, while taking cover from a hailstorm of bullets, can be just as satisfying as sneaking quietly behind a foe and taking him down.

Kinda curious about this one.
I'll have video impressions but not until the retail release date of Feb 12; the review version has been on my Steam account for about a week or so.

It's a simplified city builder (less resources, with direct relationships between converting them (rather than having multi-step chains) ...examples: a speakeasy sells liquor and beer for dirty money, while a ponzi scheme converts dirty money into your "liked" rating) with turn-based tactical battles that are interesting when special abilities are involved.

After Kalypso's terrible handling of Legend of Pegasus, I'll wait for a shitload of user reviews to come in before I consider getting this one.

Yeah, unfortunately both Kalypso and Paradox are on my list of incredibly awesome sounding niche games on paper but wait for the reviews list.

Kalypso being the worse of the two.

And then Cyanide is basically don't buy unless its Blood Bowl.

Kinda curious about this one. Sounds neat, but I'll need to see some stellar reviews first.
