    It did? I thought playing it as a pacifist(not feeding on the characters you talk with) makes it way harder because you'll be behind on levels.

    First a new Fallout-esque game from Obsidian now this, put Cyberpunk in the mix and we are all set!

    Unhappy ending if you feed on town npcs.
    Kinda depends on the choices you made but feeding at all I think gives you sad endings.

    The first game was so fucking good. I feel sad that I was the only one amongst my group of friends who played it at that time.

    Big titty vampire goth gf pls.

    "We wanted to pick those clans that deliver a clear player fantasy," says Christian Schlütter, lead producer. "If I'm someone who just likes to punch people in the face, we have a clan for you. If I'm someone that ... in a normal roleplaying game, would play a wizard or something, we also have a clan for that."

    Tremere and Gangrel pretty much confirmed. There's only 5 clans this time around so if they pick a clan that was a no-so last game, we don't have many returning clans.

    I know you mean Bloodlines, but Redemption is a hidden gem that more people should play.

    Story doesn't quite nabs you like Bloodlines but it's a pretty cool game. The whole setting change midway was ballsy as hell. Also Big tittied goth necromancer girlfriend is my waifu.

    In the 5.0 version they're for Bloodlines 2's setting, they're out of the Camarilla so they're most likely a no show.

    First clan - Brujah


    Desc:

    Potency
    • You're big, you're tough and your muscles have muscles.
    • Fist of Caine gives you a punch even the big daddy of the vamps would be proud of. Knock down walls and throw people far. It's upgradeable, too.
    • Beat up the ground with Earthshock, creating a shockwave and knocking down anyone that gets too close. Upgrading it will send out fissures that damage everyone nearby.
    Celerity
    • You're the speedster of the vampire world.
    • Unseen Storm lets you dash in any direction so quickly that, to anyone looking, you disappear, giving you the chance to make a quick attack, reposition yourself and dodge attacks. It helps if you want to run away, too, and it can be upgraded.
    • With Accelerate, the world slows down around you, letting pull off fancy stunts and even avoid bullets. You can enhance it with an upgrade, too. You'll be wanting to grab some shades and a leather coat, obviously.

    You dont need to be Tzimisce for that. You can be Ventru and use lowly clans like Brujah as furniture.

    You win this round. I guess they don’t give a fuck about the Pen & Paper setting.

    I love how the community is losing its shit with fear of losing their own clan. I'm pretty sure Malkavian and Nosferatu are going to be DLC clans since they're the "especially fun on second playthrough" clans and fan favorites. I hope Tzimice gets in somehow.

    They're gonna dangle that carrot on you, bro. I hope I'm wrong but clan DLC is supposed to be free anyway.

    Blood vomit and Blood explosion are back. Clan specific havens are back. Female Tremere's artwork are all about glasses wearing cuties with suave gothic dresses.

    Noice.

    I think so. Dee Bradley Baker is a fairly ubiquitous voice actor, but it’s probably no coincidence that they picked him for this.

    Although, they could’ve saved him for the Nossie trailer...

    Man, oh man. The first game's theme was creepier, but this one has an awesome melancholic feel to it.

    Rik Schaffer rides again! I just hope he didn't do hard time while chasing inspiration this time around.

    Fuck. Yes.

    That shit fucking transported me to the first game's mood. They couldn't have made this game without him.

    Guess the twilight vampires are in...although Seattle Toreadors definitely seem to have more edge since they're pulling off murderous artist this time around . From that trailer, their dialogue is more down to earth but I hope we get an artsy fartsy dialogue option all the way through.

    Only one clan left. I guess either Malkavian or Nosferatu will be DLC-an unmitigated dick move, but I'm a sucker so I'll probably buy it.

    Told yah fuckers they were going to hold out on Malkavian and Nosferatu. They're pulling a Vergil on us.

    I would actually be interested in a surprise clan outside of the 3 we're all expecting. I'm sure there's plenty of weird ass vampire clans out there that could make for an interesting playthrough that wasn't in the first game.

    That said, the Ventrue trailer and render look extremely bland. His render almost looks it's from a different game.

    Interview with the senior product manager at Paradox. The highlights for me are:

    -The return of detailed city hubs instead of a full sandbox.
    -You WON'T be able to resolve every situation non-violently, so here's hoping they've atleast learned from the first game's shitty bossfights.
    -They once again confirm the game will support mods on Steam Workshop and Paradox Mods.

    After that flaccid Ventrue reveal, they ended up doing Malk fans right, showed them last and and revealed the best render yet. Better yet, Mitsoda just confirmed that we'll be playing as a Fishmalk just like in the original game since it's the Malkavian experience that the original fanbase wants. Although not cracking as much jokes about it might be disingenuous since they're offering the fucking stop sign as pre-order bonus. I'll wait for the final result and see how comic it is but what he said is more or less the change in tone I was expecting.

    The one downside of this reveal is that we ain't getting a single new playable clan which kinda sucks. Guess we'll have DLC for that...maybe. Nosferatu is going to be the first DLC to pop out.

    Anyway, I made the mistake of not playing Malkavian on my first playthrough, not gonna happen again.
