    They did bring up the comparison between this mechanic and action films where you see the protagonist fire until he's out of ammo, throw his current weapon away and go for another one, so I wouldn't be too sure on that.

    Would've been quite good if they only stuck to implementing new Clans and Disciplines. As it is currently, though, most of the changes made are quite idiotic, the new content is batshit insane and written in hilariously broken English, the balance is completely off etc.

    Your most powerful enemies will not be other supernatural beings using their advanced powers against you, those you will go through like a knife through butter because the game throws an absolute fuckton of XP your way. No, the enemies you will fear the most are....... random human mooks with assault rifles. Even with Soak through the roof, any human with an AK-47 will shred you in about 2 seconds of focused fire. The only cure is to either play a Clan with Necromancy so you can summon bullet sponges or use companions, which is so goddamn immersion breaking and stupid it made my brain bleed.

    As mentioned above, they added combat encounters in places where they have absolutely no reason on god's green Earth to be - you'll fight a Pander in front of the Ocean House hotel, Grout's wife wakes up and whips out a fucking Glock, a SWAT(?) team will attack you in the Red Dragon after your conversation with Wong Ho, you'll be fighting Scorpion and Sub-Zero in Chinatown (yes, really), you'll encounter some sort of a necromancer in Hollywood Graveyard which will trigger the start of a quest, but that quest will stay stuck that way forever because it's not finished and will never be.

    They've added motherfucking platforming sections to the game, they've extended the cunting shit-snorting sewer section, instead of fighting Andrei in the mansion you'll fight Tremere Antitribu (you know, the same Tremere Antitribu that were wiped out to the last Vampire 5-6 years before the game events take place), you'll go through the city library after Hollowbrook Hotel and fight a goddamn ass-raping Lich (???), they've added a "puzzle" in the Tremere Chantry where you have to solve a linear equation with 4 variables and I feel my brain begging me to stop writing about it, so I'll let you experience the wonders of the mod yourself, should you choose.

    He is shilling on behalf of Larian, just like he shilled on behalf of his tranny boyfriend at HBS. Stop trying to take away his Jew-gold, mon! The tool literally demanded a citation in a post where it was outright quoted.

    you mean a pistol that you don't throw away when you run out of bullets, and also you forgot to mention the dart thrower you wear on your wrist that can shoot various types of darts. at no point does the character throw it away if they've run out of ammunition. the point of dishonored is to play it how you want, including using projectiles. You also find ammo for both, and can buy them from stores, so I don't really know what you're going on about...

    It could also be that weapons are far cheaper than in Bloodlines and don't really do major scaling like in it.

    Or even better, they might be taking a note from Yakuza's playbook where (even if you can carry a few weapons, they aren't meat of the combat like fists are) almost everything around you is a potential weapon and the focus is in the use of those weapons for finishers that usually break them. At the very least the idea of disposable weapons via special attacks makes it sound like niggas are getting blasted properly:



    And it needs to be stressed out again, vampires of WoD are inherently better at melee combat than gunfighting, both because of their resiliency against bullets (though I suppose this should be amended a bit in that in V5 the resiliency is just the same against knives et al as well, and since bite tag is out as well the real hardcore combat potential in core is solely in high-level Potence where Aggravated damage against everything kicks in) and because of their inherent ability to power up their physical strength above human limits (that STACKS with Potence) and several of their abilities contrary to B1 don't benefit firearms (Celerity does not work with guns for example; albeit V5 does add an Celerity/Auspex amalgam ability that is for guns; just as a sidenote, V5 also managed the marvelous feat of unbreaking Celerity).

    I mean... he's one of the sole owners of the legendary double dumbfuck tag, so.. yes?

    His gimmick is still way more entertaining than Sailor or Safav's though.

    I'm not a lore expert, but this doesn't break anything for me. They're still superhuman monsters so they have to have something, and it's not going to be paintbrush powers. It makes sense to me that artists aren't gorilla take-it-on-the-chin types, that they'd develop super speed instead as a way to avoid hunters, catch prey etc.

    No idea why, but they've always had celerity (the bullet time super speed power) as far as I know. The other original celerity clan was the Brujah who are the philosopher guys. There's probably some dumb lore explanation for everything but I think ultimately it was just so the arty talky clans would be able to actually contribute if a fight broke out without being too overpowered. They can take a lot of actions in order to make up for their inability to really do too much with them.


    When they added all the dumb extra orders and bloodlines like the Assamites who had super combat powers AND celerity though it got stupid and nobody wanted to play anything else
