A cult classic, you cannot call yourself a gamer unless you have played it. I recommend the clan quest mod


Does anyone know what is going on with 2? Not keen to play it but I am getting vaporware vibes

The second game was being worked on by Hard Suit Labs who only hired hardcore dangerhair types. This resulted in the work going slowly due to people at Hardsuit spending all day arguing over SJW shit instead of working. Also pretty much everyone there who was doing real work was incompetent at it. This resulted in Paradox eventually firing them and starting over with a new team. No one knows who the new team is but the current rumor is that it's a group called the Chinese Room. This is a dev team known for walking simulators so I've not got high hopes that they'll pull it off.

Give them two or three years and we'll probably get an update.

I dunno, as I recall the game was like 90% complete when they started chopping heads, and it seemed to be over creative issues, given that they fired the director and lead writer together. If the gameplay is settled and all the Chinese Room has to do is take the script and at least give the SJW pablum some substance and flavor then that's probably what they'd be best at.

Disclaimer: Big fan of Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, even if the streamlined nature of it doesn't make it anywhere near as replayable as The Dark Descent. What was there was amazing, it just needed more actual gameplay.

The gameplay was a broken mess. They are trashing everything and starting over. They may reuse some assets but that's about it. Hopefully they won't even use much of those because all of the models and animations looked like shit. The environment looked nice though so I wouldn't mind them keeping the setting and assets for the buildings and such.

Supposedly the original script was so full of made up pronouns that the translators were having issues translating the script for other regions. Brian Mitsoda has become a giant cuck since he wrote the first game.

I'm not gonna play it until they fix it right out of the gate.

I'm not downloading a mod just to play one game.

dude what? The mod makes the game much better, not that you need it. If you haven't played it before just get the wesp patch (fixes most bugs adds some content).

That's what I meant - the patch.

It should already be part of the game.

The developer should just go back and re-release it with the wesp patch already in there.

Why do I have to go through the trouble to install it?

Are you a woman? They like to complain about petty shit in order to cause drama. There is no difficulty involved, in fact it might be incorporated with the gog version. Troika is the dev and they got took out shortly after the game released, leading to hatred for their activision paymasters. HL2 was doing the rounds at the time of release so it tanked... however the fan base is so strong due to it's cult status that a sequel ended up being made. If it ever gets released.

If they add gays in bloodlines 2, if you drink their blood you should get aids.

There is no trouble bro, you simply install the base game and then apply the most recent VTMB patch. Done.
The game was a buggy mess when released, the dev studio got bankrupt and the community had to finish it. The art style 3D and boobs animation is still somewhat appealing

Ah yes... I played this though many years ago and I believe I still have it installed on one of my older computers. I would recommend it to anybody who is interested. The appeal of this game though is that it is a Deus Ex lite immersive sim game with the backdrop paint job of a vampire secret society who just squabbles amongst one another. There is literally a commie type anarchist vampire faction in this game with its own quest line and ending if you choose to pursue it.

Deus Ex (the original one) is still better than this game though in regards to the immersive sim elements and story.

Guns are almost useless in this game unless you put enough points into your character build to make them useful, our else you will literal have to stand right next to your enemy to shoot them point blank to make them hit their mark... Yes, it is one of those types of games.

Oh yeah, and don't open the sarcophagus.

Yes, seconded for insisting on using the fan restoration patch. Don't be inflexible and hard headed over this @Highlander , you will be in for a bad time with this blatantly rushed game if you choose to ignore it. The fan patch also unlocks stuff that was mysteriously removed from the game before launch such as unused weapons, quest lines, speech options and even a joke ending involving a dancing werewolf. It also stabilizes the game considerably making it have almost no instances of crashing. The original release of this game crashed like a nigger on crack constantly, so why give yourself that headache by ignoring the fix that makes that issue go away? There is also a mainline quest location in a sewer later in the game that was not balanced properly when initially released where it was way too hard for any character build that didn't specialize in melee combat to pass though. Not only has this problem been fixed due to balancing fixes there but I believe they also shortened that sewer section considerably.

The patch literally takes a few clicks once you download it to replace all the files in the file directory and your good to go. Your literally a low time preference nigger if you can't be bothered taking one little extra step in getting your game installation set up properly. You can even get torrents of this game pre-patched I believe if you really can't be arsed patching it yourself (It is just as quick to download the free fan patch and apply it yourself than to torrent it fully patched and ready to go).

Guns are okay, I favor them because melee is kind of janky. When the assault rifle unlocks you can kick ass until then shotgun and SMG (bind it to a hotkey) can deal with most enemies

Not only has this problem been fixed due to balancing fixes there but I believe they also shortened that sewer section considerably.
Have you tried Clan Quest? It adds a ton of new content to the game... even a new area called east LA. This is for the Sabbat questline which drastically alters the endgame if you choose to join them. You can skip the sewer by doing a quest and can avoid the annoying geodudes

Lol, screw those nigger sabbat's and screw those kuei-jin chink vampires that double cross you and toss you into the ocean if you were stupid enough to do their main quest line in the final act.

I think I'll just stick to doing another run with another vampire race if I play this game again in the future. I know the modding scene is extensive but most early 2000's games have a huge modding scene because the vidya market wasn't flooded with games like it is now.

It's fun because you get to kill the anarchs and maximillian straus, you also get to chimp out murdering everyone (humanity? GAY) with a deranged 'christian' preacher and a latina jb goth who does not understand that she is a vampire. Well if you choose to join the sabbat and ally yourself with him.

clan quest is the definitive experience, but keep in mind that it is harder. No more bullet sponge vampire guns can fuck you up easily in CC... until late game when you have high defenses.

Every time I start a new game I tell myself "This time I'm using the shortcut to avoid the sewers" and each time I end up playing through the entire sewer system. It is such a terrible grind I love it; I must be a sucker for punishment, IDK.

My last play through was a Nosferatu brawler who joined the Sabbat - fun times. Not sure who/what I am going to play on my next round through the game.

Since we have a vampire the masquerade bloodlines thread here at the GU, has anybody here seen/heard about this game thats coming out called 'vampire the masquerade: swansong'? I thought this was the supposed VtMB 2 game that is releasing soonish, but apparently it isn't and is its own thing? Here is a trailer for this thing:


Ohhhh yeeeeeaaah! Can't wait to play this game and take orders from a black bossy bitch 'down with the patriarchy' eternal revolutionary cunt who will play this games version of Sebastian LaCroix! (because we all loved Sebastian, right?)

Seriously, my gamer intuition is telling me that this game is going to be a trainwreck and that this name of "swansong" is going to be a meme of how it killed the series for being so terrible. Could it be that this game is the version of VtMB 2 that got cancelled by the publisher for being 'too woke' and they simply decided to continue developing it under a different title? So we could potentially see a 'super woke' VtMB: swansong and a slightly less woke VtMB 2 that will be peddled as the non woke alternative to play it safe and move that overton window slightly by comparison of the two? I'm not liking how this is going at all.
