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.

Just what Omerta needs. A DLC. Because the people who bought it, didn't feel they wasted quite enough money.

Five dollars for a 4MB DLC? I hope this doesn't become something regular on GOG.

Roman5: I'm sorry but...What the fuck is this shit?

DLC? on GOG? Are you fucking kidding me?

This should be INCLUDED FOR FREE with the original Omerta game, which is already a very steep 40 bucks

Who's fucking bright Idea was this? GOG's? The publisher?

I am not happy with this at all

GOG was always about delivering value to Gamers, if we get more of this nonsense in the future then the core values of this site can start to break apart piece by piece

SLP2000: you are the first in this thread who complains. Other gamers are happy / neutral about it.
And not the last. I would explain it in other words, but I also dislike this step. It's the same with the missing expansions, I prefer to have complete bundles and knowing newer games will maybe get some seperate dlcs/expansions later it means I will pass newer games for now . I can understand why they do this (offering newer games) and I see the benefit for some folks here (getting newer games also drm-free), so it's not an absolute no-go for me, but I really don't need to like it.

Stooner: So, Friday now is the DLCs release day?
Today is this DLC's official release date. It has been released today on other digital stores too.

I don't care about the newer games but this is a worrying precedent for me because it could allow the greedy publishers, who don't even deserve the money, to start charging more for expansion packs for old games.
So, what if this is a necessary step to have new(er) games here, with the clause to change the base game to the GOTY edition (including all DLCs) after X amount of time has passed?

Appropriately named "Con Artist" DLC.

Roman5: Damn right I'm going to complain about it

Not only should this be included for free with the Original game but this also creates unnecessary clutter in the GOG catalogue

The publisher should add the DLC to the Game to maintain it's price and keep providing value for it's product, if the publisher does not do that then it should reduce the price of the main game, but surprise surprise, no prices were reduced for this

Kalypso wants to Have their cake and eat it too, and GOG seems to be fine with this

Well I'm not
I don't see the problem. Aren't most expansions sold separately when first released?

Uh oh~

GOG just past that terrible line...

Don't fool yourself. GOG is not big enough to start demanding things like that from publishers.

GOG.com was build upon a foundation of delivering the best value to gamers. We know gamers are not stupid, and we know they won't buy anything we serve just because it's there. Of course we'd like to include all the DLCs, extra materials, soundtracks for free, but that's not always possible. For some of the games, it's possible to bundle all the expansions (or DLCs) in one package, for some it ain't. I can understand that you might be afraid that we're losing our values, but we're not. All we want is DELIVER the games. At the end, it's always YOU who decide--buy or skip. And we'd rather give you that choice now.

Also: Keep in mind what this means for the future people

First they start selling DLC separately

Then they start selling Soundtracks/Goodies separately

Then they start selling the DRM free version of a game separately

Do you see with what we are dealing here people?

Fuck this shit and don't buy into this Con Artist
