    No no, the Ocean House Hotel.

    Eh, not worth it.

    You know what mission was great in this game? The hotel.

    with the russians?

    i was happily surprised to find out that as a malk i could
    use dementation dialogue options to have boris's bodyguard gun him down for me.

    then i sucked the bodyguard dry and took all the jewelry and cash in the room.

    a fine night's work
    you forgot to mention the part where you convince the other russian to shoot the other guys by making him think that he's a bear and they are salmon

    hahaha, i didn't know you could do that. i just used obfuscate to slit everyone's throat on the way there.

    The whole Jeanette thing was a little predictable, but I still loved the way it played out. Such diverse outcomes, yet each one felt organic and earned.

    Ok, so it sounds like a lot of Malk dialogue is in relation to the plot by way of foreshadowing.

    Is this really such an enormous hindrance? Can't I get to a point in the plot and be like "oh, fuck, that's what that dialogue choice was about," or does it not work that way?

    And if I don't play Malk it seems like I'll go Tremere - how does the mana system work in this game?

    i don't think it's a hindrance, actually i think it's kind of cool. if you play a malk your first time you won't know what's being revealed, but if you do it again, or as a second playthrough, it'll be pretty funny what you find out so early

    also: all disciplines use a certain amount of blood points

    you fill up blood by feeding

    it works pretty good

    You can also feed in combat, which I don't think the tutorial goes over (does it?). It took me a while before I realized that hobos and rats weren't the only way to go.

    It feels pretty fucking rad to jump on the guy who had previously been kicking your ass and use his demise as fuel for your victory

    At least, up until the goddamn snuff house/sewer

    It isn't really a hindrance. It's more that you either won't understand what your own character is saying ORRRR your own character's responses will spoil plot surprises.

    There is no mana system. Every discipline uses blood, which isn't difficult to come by.

    Just start playing. At this point, any further discussion can only diminish the wonder you will feel.

    I started playing as a Tremere. I'm pretty sure I'm still in the Tutorial, but the girlfriend went off to watch a tv show so I took a break

    I can tell that I'm going to really enjoy this, though. Back in '04, these kinds of poorly done animations and flawed textures really bugged me because of how close they were to being good, but the second the first cutscene loaded I realized I really was in the mood for a game from that era.

    Bloodlines is the only non-Valve game to actually use the Source engine properly to render realistic speech/emotion on their NPCs, IMO.

    Realistic when it isn't buggy, spastic, and outright broken. It's great except for when it's terrible.

    Yeah the facial animations in the game are fantastic. The only game I can think of to do better is TF2, and only in the Meet The videos, which are made using Source but are probably very polished up/edited.
