I'm going to admit right now that I haven't heard of most of the games on this week's PC release list. What? I've been playing Borderlands 2 for only a total of 90 hours and I've only had it for like a two weeks. I'm definitely not plowing through it, but those 90 hours have accounted for myself going through about 2/3 of the story with a Commando, a Siren and now a low level Mechromancer. But even though I've been busy looting various boxed compartments, housing glowing beams of various colored light with goodies attached to them (mostly white and yellow), there's nothing a little research can't fix.
Though the puzzler Antichamber and the 3D retro world of Proteus look damn interesting, I'll instead aim my sights on one of the games that did catch my attention in this week's lineup. That game? Omerta: City of Gangsters.
Now omerta means a code of silence of sorts. With that word of the day definition out of the way, the game focuses on the simulation aspect of Mafia life. You begin as an immigrant in 1920's Atlantic City, where you work your way up the ranks. You start with small jobs, recruit a gang and expand your territory until you control the entirety of Atlantic City. It also features an RPG system for character development and tactical turn-based combat; because what's a mafia game without a good old beat down in an alleyway with baseball bats? I just got flashbacks of Tommy Angelo from Mafia.
Wizardry Online (Didn't I already put you on a release list?)
