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.

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

Alfie3000: Appropriately named "Con Artist" DLC.
True that. I have to wonder what kind of hold the makers of this wholly unremarkable game have on them in order to be featured so very prominently and being all hyped up before release with lots of advertising plastered all over the various digital download sites, like Steam, GamersGate, GOG etc. It's was and is still prominently featured everywhere, it seems, despite a very poor critical reception from both the gaming press and the gaming community itself. Strange, maybe the mob is involved? :)
It is nice to see some DLC get great reviews on the GOG site
Good. More choice for the existing owner whether to get the extra content or not. You have no right to lock them out of the additional content / DLC. The moment GOGagreed to bring newer title (non-indie), this is bound to happen. Is this enough reason to be unhappy? Probably not.

See, we still have Superb Strategy promo and some other great classics release. The positive outweigh the "negative". GOG still have bargain power here, it's not like they're sacrificing their principles overnight.

You can't make your assumption based on one title alone, that's premature.
Awesome reviews already...
Sold separately doesn't bother me as I'll wait untill all DLCs are are released and then fore a sale for the game plus all DLCs. :)

Adzeth: GOG guys, like...
you really could have picked some more substantial DLC to start with, you know.
avatar
JMich: Like what? What other game GOG carries has DLCs?
I dunno. Maybe call some dev and ask "hey, could you make a DLC addon thing that has ostensibly more stuff than what can be assumed to be 2 images, a few relatively short text files and an area layout made by placing old assets". They could've done that last week, since they probably already knew that there's going to be DLC on the site. :p
high rated

Stooner: Awesome reviews already...
Ugh. That is why only people who have bought a game should be allowed to post reviews.
avatar
P1na: They could have waited for one. Just saying.

JMich: So the people (few as they might be) that have bought Omerta here would be screwed out of the DLC if they wanted it? So GOG would be selling an inferior product to the one their competitors are selling?
This is freaking GOG, I think people here can hold out a week or 2 until (just maybe) that new space sim which was confirmed to get DLCs came up with something good. I agree with Adzeth in that GOG could have tried to get some awesome DLC that was worthwile for a better first impression. But hey, what do I know?

BTW, I bought Omerta myself. I preordered it in fact, I thought a new release DRM on GOG deserved my support. It turned out I didn't like the game, and so I won't buy the DLC. I might have it was gameplay-changing, addressing some shortcomings maybe, but not this.

nijuu: What the **** is it with some of you guys???????
No way is GOG going the way of Steam or anyone bullshite or crappy f***ing stores out there?.
They buy the DLC from the publisher. Do it DRM free. Pass it onto us the usual way.
What do you think GOG is? A charity?.
Most DLC is PAID DLC. Notice PAID. Being PAID we have to PAY to get it.. If THAT is a the policy a publisher for a given game does things, then if we want given game on GOG, we have to PAY for the DLC. Get it?. Seriously. Grow up some of you. If you dont like it BUY the farking game from Steam or some other shite place. FMD.

Its also NOT GOGS fault if shitty publishers or devs decide to charge for soundtracks. Squeeze out every last drop of $$$ from consumers. I for one (and probably a few others) would be happy if GOG offerred to sell NEW or recent soundtracks separately if that was the only way to get them (free for most classics having said that).

Sorry if i sound pissed but some of you act like kids and just gimme gimme gimme
And you act like someone who needs to get off his high horse and stop defending this nonsense

We do PAY for the DLC, we do it when we buy the damn game here on GOG, this is the way it worked with Witcher 2 here, why can't it work with other games? Oh yeah, that's because Unlike CDprojekt, many other publishers are complete dumbasses who act like kids and just gimme gimme gimme, for content that should be included for free with the main game (like this one)

Of course it's not GOG's fault that publishers are this but what I'm and other people are pissed about is that GOG ALLOWS this kind of behaviour on it's store, of course it's the fault of the publisher but it's also the fault of GOG for allowing this bullshit

We are people with opinions ... just like you I guess ?

Hey, I haven't bought Omerta, I don't particularly care about Omerta. However, here is what's happening.

1) GOG can wait for a few weeks/days to get a better DLC, and have people asking "Why is X released on other distributors and not on GOG? Why are you sitting on it for a few weeks/months instead of matching release date with the other stores?".
2) GOG can release it the same date as the other distributors, and get hit with a "You're shitting me. This is what you are releasing?".
3) GOG can decline releasing it altogether, thus selling an inferior product.

Yes, Strike Suit Zero has already announced DLCs. Would you like GOG to release them on the same day they are released on the rest of the platforms, or release them 2 weeks later? Why do you treat this game (shitty as it may be) different than others?

In all fairness, The witcher 2 was in house. They probably agree with you, and that's why they do so with their own games. However, they can't force other development houses to think like them.

I'm ok with DLCs in exchange for newer games on GOG. I just want some clarification on the issues I mentioned before.

Ahem, can I get an answer to this post?

JMich: Ahem, can I get an answer to this post?
I think he means option 4: add the DLC to the base game for free.

Roman5: If a publisher wants to get on their high horse and release a game THEIR WAY here on YOUR STORE, tell them to hit the road, this is not fucking Burger King
avatar
JMich: Actually, no.
Check the posts asking "What about Patch X for game Y", or "Will we get the DLC/Expansion for Game Z" thread. What should GOG do then?
Add the DLC to the game for free to maintain it's price and value to the customer

If a publisher refuses to do this, then make them wait for this until they are ready to do so
