    Who's that one vampire
    under the abandoned hospital who slaughters that film crew and you bring her stuff? i forget what she is.

    She's a member of a bloodline, the Nagaraja. They have to eat the flesh of their victims in addition to drinking their blood...

    A new World of Darkness rpg would be the shit, especially if it was handled by a good dev studio. Think about how much the gaming world has advanced in pretty much every aspect of the game; stealth, shooting, the rpg elements. Damnit, vidya gaem guys, make me a damn WoD game.

    So I played this for a few hours (like 5) and got to the Hotel. The part in the boiler room before you turn on the power.

    It's like the god damned Shining!

    Also I went with the blood magic fag my first way through. Who are the talky fags for my next playthrough?

    Malkavians and Nosferatu certainly make for interesting playthroughs.

    Choosing a clan to play with is tough, but Obfuscate is just so damn good.

    This game is pretty great.

    It reminds me of KotOR but with more entertaining combat.

    Even if you have never played anything VtM related (which I haven't, really) it's excellent.

    Definitely one of my top five games of all time (but then I'm biased towards rpgs).

    As I said before, the atmosphere's just amazing; I have more fond memories of scenes from this game than anything else.

    It's actually so good that it's not really terribly fun. My malk has 5 obfuscate and is just waltzing all over everywhere not getting touched by anything or anyone. Celerity is a way more entertaining way to break the game.

    RPGs quickly become like choose-your-own-adventure books for me, except instead of bookmarks and fingers between pages, it's saves before and after every branching event in the game.

    I felt the combat in this was interesting enough to avoid this, though

    As rpgs go this is pretty damn linear, I think. And actually the overarching story isn't that fantastic. But damn, there were so many good segments I just didn't care.

    My point pretty much just was, mmo's generally aren't that kind to the source material and the people playing them aren't either. I meant, banana's aren't intended to go into vaginas, but there you go.

    This is what I'm doing for my next playthrough. Decided my last 2 characters were melee/brawl so it's time to make a ranged.

    It's also funny, I console hacked to swap around a few of my stats around and found out that Jack tells you off at the beginning of the game if you use the console at all and won't let you play unless you say "I have a mod please let me continue."

    Whatever the mages in the first WoD were

    actually I'd probably join the Technocracy but since those are the bad guys I guess I'd probably be a Virtual Adept

    I played one once in WOD pen and paper

    They have some nice stuff like obfuscate and disguise they can use temporarily to walk among people

    But yeah, they spend lots of time in sewers and abandoned shit etc

    God, werewolves would be a balancing nightmare. Their description is basically "a shitload more powerful than every other race." Excepting maybe creative mages with a bunch of points in a good sphere.

    But did they change that in nWoD?

    I mean, fuck, Garou form adds what +3 or +4 to your base strength? So you've got newbie werewolves running around with 7 or 8 strength and massive fuck-you swords that always do aggravated damage. Newbie werewolves, not even the experienced ones.

    Werewolves only win if they manage to get in your face.

    Winning as a mage requires being smarter. If you are not an intelligent and imaginative PLAYER then do not play a mage.

    But yeah, anyone that feels like going toe to toe with a werewolf is either stupid or another werewolf.

    or you happen to not be a 13th gen retard and have actually lived for more than 50 years

    werewolves have a normal lifespan, unlike everything else except for dumb mages and hunters
