The boys at Troika have let Gamespot PC have a crack at Vampire: Bloodlines, the upcoming CRPG set in White Wolf's popular bloodsucking world.
As we saw, a vampire of the Nosferatu clan seemed best suited to using a stealthy or an aggressive approach, since the monstrous-looking vampires would have had a hard time trying to talk their way past humans. The stealth solution to the mission involved sneaking around the back of the house to switch off the fuse box. When one of the thugs came out to switch it back on, Boyarsky snuck up from behind, grabbed him, and drained him of blood. The obfuscation discipline also came in handy--this powerful skill helps cloak your presence in darkness, and at its highest levels, it can render you almost completely invisible.
There's also a refreshingly free video interview that GameSpot did with Leon Boyarsky you can watch. Read the whole shebang here.
