Omerta – City of Gangsters coming to Mac.

Good news for people who love bathtub gin and violence: Omerta – City of Gangsters is coming to OS X in “early 2013.” The strategy game lets you play as an Atlantic City crime boss in the 1920s, tasking you with trying to rule the city by building business and/or rubbing out the competition.

From the press release:

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.

Mac-Only GameAgent Web Portal Set To Update In September

Get your Mac games right here.

Mac gaming portal, GameAgent, today announced a new version of its web portal. The new update will launch in September of this year and include information on over 150 Mac games, as well as some new game discovery features.

GameAgent will also launch a new tool, called Mac Match, which will compare your Mac’s system profile to available Mac games, allowing you to know what will and will not work on your specific Mac before you purchase a game.

There will also be a price comparison feature to search for the best prices for Mac games across multiple online retail sources for Mac games, including the Mac App Store and Amazon.com. Other new features include Deal Alerts, User Reviews, and custom Collections, each of which will be discussed on the GameAgent website closer to the launch of the new site.

Current user accounts will, unfortunately, be wiped out during the transition, so if you’re already using GameAgent’s community features, you’ll need to re-sign up after the change over. Any orders placed before the 2.0 beta will, of course, be honored, according to the company website.

The current GameAgent portal functions as a storefront for many Mac games across a variety of formats and from a variety of Mac game companies like Aspyr, LucasArts, and 2K Games. You can purchase boxed or downloadable versions of many Mac games there, including Star Wars: Empire at War, Civilization V, and Call of Duty, all games brought to the Mac platform by Aspyr.

GameAgent 2.0 is expected to appear in beta form in the second week of September
