Pretty deadly little thing.

Captain, I have some new information regarding "The Aristocrats". No, they're still laying low after their last heist, so low that we haven't seen Don or Freddie since the meeting with "The Boss". Someone might've hid them underground but we won't know for sure just now. Anyway, there's a new girl that was seen with Rick Fermione. She from outta town, don know exactly where. Seems a member of the borguise. It's bourgeoisie? Don't know sir, some fancy stuff I don't get--pearls, caviars, and champagnes, sir. Yes, one of my boys is following her. Yes, I know this is very delicate matter. Oh, the mayor... no, of course, no, I mean I'll talk to... Yes sir. No one seen. The report, yes. The last thing, sir--and this is a little bit unexpected--it looks like "The Aristocrats" are planning to move to a new district, any moment now. Can't tell for sure, but my bet is Connecticut Ave. We'll see. Will do, sir. Goodbye.

Omerta: City of Gangsters, an organized crime simulation you have been playing for the last couple of weeks just got bigger with The Con Artist DLC. There's a new henchman to recruit, new weapon, and a new district up for grabs. Experience "the greatest con of all time" in this action-packed expansion for only $4.99 on GOG.com.

Requires the base game Omerta: City of Gangsters on GOG in order to play.

I also hope that after X years, the base game will be upgraded to GOTY/Complete for all who bought it. As to whether this was the proper DLC to introduce paid DLCs to GOG, it was the only one for a game currently sold on GOG, so it was the proper one.

I would also prefer for this DLC to be a better content, but it's irrelevant as to whether GOG did the right thing by selling it.

Nalkoden: But then it's the same system like STEAM, GamersGate or others. GOG was suppose to be better that that. There are games that give content patches (effectively DLC) to keep their game selling and to give it value. I understand that it's not how the "big boys" do business today but I don't have to like it. And I will complain about it.
I'll refer (again) to the question I asked in this post. Should GOG refuse to sell the game, sell an inferior product, or offer the DLC for sale?
Feel free to complain, but be sure that the complaining is directed at the proper party. Is your complaint that GOG is selling DLCs, or that Kalypso released this (sad excuse of a) DLC for $4.99?

Also, what about Predestination, which I hope we'll see on GOG. Should GOG only sell the base game for this, and ignore any DLCs, should it sell the base game at a higher price point to also include the DLCs, or should it do what it's doing now, and have the DLCs for sale?

Awful DLC for awful game. This wasn't best choice to indroduce DLC on gog

tfishell: I see this as partial evidence that in many cases GOG is better off waiting a few years before bringing expensive new games here. The price will be lower and the game can be considered a complete edition (with all DLC included).
Evidence? I know what that word means but do you? The price will most certainly be lower in a few years whether Gog sells it in the meantime or not. And whether or not the expansion(s) is merged with the base game is up to the publisher, regardless of age.

So GOG should be selling an inferior version of Omerta?
This is a good step, making GOG a bit more competitive with Steam. Now we just need to be able to buy soundtracks separately, and for GOG to put together the foundation for multiplayer. :)

See? We basically agree. Pointing out it's a poor first one doesn't mean it shouldn't be sold, it just means it's unfortunate it happened to be that one. But we did have to start somewhere.

Now, if a blue would confirm that we will indeed get this GOTY upgrade eventually, regardless of the DLCs bought for the game, I can leave happy.

I meant that based upon the negative reaction (to the idea of DLC, as far as the reviews are concerned), GOG's reputation might fare better if they continue waiting before releasing higher-price games such as this.
EDIT: Perhaps "evidence" wasn't the best word choice, but I think my point is received.

If they wanted to indtroduce DLC they should get something actually good as first one.

No they shouldn't - pull the game from the catalogue and wait until they can release the full experience.

People will get over it like they got over (or at least learned to live with) everything else.
I agree with the notion of upgrading games to Complete Editions after their DLC-income has run dry for several months. Makes sense, as it gives value to players and it may entice people to buy more games.

By the way, would it be possible for GOG to have a policy where exclusive DLC becomes non-exclusive if the game is added to the store? Things like pre-order DLC, store-specific DLC, special collector's DLC, and so forth. This concerns me, because it is impossible to find the DLC for some games - Alpha Protocol, for example. Technically, I could try to buy Alpha Protocol's pre-order bonuses, but the codes may have expired by now and might cost a premium.

Perhaps, but I'm still not convinced this is the route GOG should go, and still believe my point is one to be considered. But in any case, ultimately what brings the point home is what sells well; if this and other DLC does sell well with GOG's reputation intact, then that's what people want here and that's what GOG will bring.
high rated
Sorry, but this is intolerable! GOG now also has overpriced DLC? What happened to the quality control that you first release Omerta and then even DLC for it? Why don't you concentrate on good games anymore?

I rather get Eador and King of Dragon Pass from the sale. They actually look fun. :P

I don't know...it took a helluva long time until people decided to finally shut up with their whinging about indie games being on GOG (or said people just stopping visiting this forum - like SimonG).
