    Jack says something along the lines of "who was the only guy who offered you a hand up when you had nothing?" and you feel like a tool. Later on if you come into the last round he says "you get to walk in and walk out of here. think about appreciating that favour"

    Jack is so awesome.

    Jack would HAVE to be in a new game. I demand it.

    I don't think I've ever played as non-physical of a character as this Toreador. Presence is pretty sweet though. I'm worried that I'll upgrade it too much without upgrading Celerity. Boss fights are gonna be a bitch.

    I've never played through as a Brujah, do you get any special dialogue with Jack or anything?

    'What's the occasion tonight caller?'

    It's a weekday!'

    Dib of Night is the best radio program ever.

    I also love when
    as the malk you have a conversation with the TV, among other things.

    DEB of the night.

    Deb.


    Also, man, I keep picturing some open-world GTA-style fucking rpg dealy for the next Vampire game.


    But I know they'll never make another one, and if they did, it would never be like that.

    :cry:

    Are there many examples of games that required a MASSIVE community patch to reach the level that the game should have been at by release that still managed to get another game in the line?

    I don't even know if that sentence makes sense but hopefully you get my drift.

    I gotcha, St.

    The thing is, Troika sucked to begin with on the whole support front. Then, about a month after they released the game, they fucking closed up shop, and left the game with huge fucking crippling glitches and bugs still left to be fixed.

    Like, that became good/playable after a fan patch, but sunk into obscurity because of initial failures? AND had a sequal? Cant think of any.

    [edit] Operation Flashpoint and ATMA might count, as it was a spiritual successor to that game I believe.

    Well yeah, I mean, Troika had a bad reputation too—look at how buggy Arcanum was, and their patches barely fixed it up.

    I dunno. I'd be surprised if something happened. Free-roam like Hulk/Prototype with WoD would be fucking great though. That's a pretty good wet dream.

    ARMA, not ATMA. And they're making an actual OFP2. Also ARMA II came out like yesterday. So yeah, I suppose.

    And really the only reason BI gets to keep making ARMA games is because of the cash they get from selling their actual military training sim. OFP and ARMA1/2 are hells of dumbed down.

    Not as dumbed down as OFP2

    Still don't think that game deserves to use that title.

    Well, yeah, it seems like they're trying to get OFP2 to match up against Call of Duty 4.

    Oh yeah, STALKER too. These all seem to be FPSs though, any RPGs? Fallout is pretty much exactly what we want, buggy as fuck and all that and then got picked up by a different company, except 3 was very different to 1 and 2 in many ways. Didn't someone from troika have something to do with fallout 2 or something? Or am I just getting confused again?

    Aha, sort of: "In 1998, several key members responsible for the division's first title, Fallout, left Interplay to form Troika Games after they "were unable to come to an agreement with Interplay as to how [their] next team should be structured". On December 8, 2003, in the midst of serious financial difficulties, Interplay laid off the entire Black Isle Studios staff. By then, most members had moved on to found Obsidian Entertainment."

    So there's precedent there, I suppose.

    Obsidian is really the same way as Troika, just with better patching being done to their games.

    I really hope Fallout New Vegas is great.

    The thing about Troika that depresses me is their games where so buggy but so amazing. Like both this and Arcanum are two of my absolute favorite games ever. If I owned my own development studio I would makes sequals to both.

    So, has anyone found Auspex to be particularly useful in any situation? I guess it could help you shoot things, but would it be worth using the xp to get the next levels?

    I use it for hacking like one uses blood buff for lockpicking but that's about it.

    Can you see auras through walls at higher levels? Mine's still at one (I use it for the hacking buff as well, and that's it).

    At level 5, you'll have a +3 boost to firearms, defense, hacking, and investigation. On top of that, you have nightvision, can see pretty much every character in the map, and can tell whether they're supernatural, human, have seen you, and haven't seen you. I'm a fan.

    I'm not using the fan patch, as I think it does a lot of dumb shit, and I've only had like...3 or 4 crashes in the past couple of days of far too intense hours of playing it.

    It does a lot of good stuff, but it seems like many of the changes are unnecessary.

    I'm thinking of trying it anyways on my third play-through...which may not be immediately. :p

    finished my malk playthrough last night, it was great

    started up both gangrel and nosferatu playthroughs afterwards

    gangrel is fun, does anything happen when you hit 0 humanity other than frenzying a lot and i guess different dialog options?

    nosferatu isn't as bad as i thought it would be, i was worried about constant masquerade violations but i forgot how goddamn blind people are in this game

    about half an hour into the game i snuck into a beachside cabin, turned the lights out, waited for a guy to come turn the power back on and took him out from behind with a bat to the head

    then i snuck through the house and sucked all of the blood out of a wannabe gangster's body before going to town on his chump posse, leaving them all dead in the house and then walking out the front door and beating the watchman to death with the earlier-mentioned baseball bat for being a dick to me

    I used my vampire powers to convince a guy that he wanted to let me in, then began savagely beating them to death as soon as I got inside
