    Seconded. I don't need constant POI indicators while I'm feeding on someone, quest status updates jumping into the upper right-hand side of the screen and staying there, and my currently selected weapon icon/diamond when i'm looking right at in the screen. it's a W3 mess in the video.

    that's brian mitsoda, who also did a lot of voicework for the first game, and his voice is fine. actually, the video would be much improved if instead of "playing" the game, the journalist would jsut stand around and listen to the radio.

    Yeah,i remember him being the dude that lied about having a yacht....at least that voice. Still couldn't hold a candle to the Deb of night! Oh and i agree that it would have been an improvement if he just sat there. Doesn't mean that he is gud tho.

    Yeah, I thought that was great. I wondered if it was staged but realized that whole sequence was one long take, just a nice incidental display.

    I kinda like it. Looks like there are different ways to approach the quests and there are decent options in the dialogue. Combat looks poor, but I didn't play the first one for the combat either.

    Can't believe it's come to asking these question about a game that's supposed to give you multiple approaches.
    Is there any stealth in this? Lethal/NonletNon-options? Extra points for completing certain missions without being detected, like in Vtmb 1? Have they said anything? Is there a sneak feat/skill?

    The video was surprisingly decent.

    I don't even mind the janky combat. I've always thought it kinda comes with the territory of making RPG's and is part of the gameplay flow and character progression. Most newer "RPG's" that have gone more fluid and shootery with their combat mechanics, have usually been worse games for it (and many other things).

    This one doesn't look like it's played by a complete retard. I can still smell the controller stench on it though. Degenerates.

    Because a competent player would confirm the gameplay is shit, while an incompetent player can fool people into thinking it's them, and not the game that is shitty.

    Everything I see looks decent yet I can't get excited one bite.

    Bloodlines was a product of its time, yet retarded publishers today still keep digging out those corpses.

    That unfortunately seems to be true, but taking the first part of your sentence into account, it still is better than expected, and thus, we can be relieved.

    combat looks very janky this is indeed a bloodlines sequel but the combat looks slightly worse. They put too much effort in making it look cool with the first person view and short cinematics that play like skyrim finishers but its pointless with this amount of jank. It'll be nice if in options they let us see the combat floating numbers like the original and there mod to put in toggable 3D.

    Combat scenarios pretty dumb this goes back with their questionable design decision trying make the player feel like a big bad vamp. You have multiple dudes armed with shotguns and assault rifles. Im sorry but a thin blood would get lit the fuck up.

    What a cancerous looking claustofuck of hud is that, it looks if was made with console/controller players in mind :argh:.
    Elif looks like quality waifu material, not near Therese Voerman levels but decent. Club track looks gay but that is Seattle after all. Animation looks odd, even the fist game looked more fluid from what i remember, locking picking/puzzle is also lacking with a hold button for x amount of time "normie casual" approach to it.

    It's funny because combat here looks as shit as it does in Cyberpunk yet every codexer is sucking CDPR's tranny dick in that thread. Makes you think

    The fabulous optimist would say, the quest markers are pre-alpha have only been added to the E3 demo for game jarnalists, so they don't get lost and write negative previews. I remember, when they first announced the game back in March(?), one of their bullet points was that this game won't have quest markers or compass, and there'd be no hand-holding. It's either that or betrayal.
