    Take blood save a life... Really? That's your tag line?

    This will be hilariously bad.

    Looks like Focus Home is churning out action RPGs as always.

    They also announced a sequel to Mars: War Logs.

    Apparently they have their own FocusNext event.

    They also announced another Farming and Cycling Simulator.

    This stuff?

    Remember Me has a nice production value, but won't leave a deep mark in memory...

    They'll need to step up their game on the gameplay department. Remember Me was an excellent visual piece with an interesting narrative but a very poor game.

    Didn't they publish Styx Master of Shadows? At least they got that going for them.

    That's some edgy stuff right there. It could be fun tough. Then again, anythng that reminds me of WoD is fun, so...

    I am surpised that with the popularity of Twilight, True Blood, etc. we don't have nearly as many vampire games as there are zombie ones. As for this project, it will probably suck. Remember Me is pretty terrible.

    The feeling I get with Spiders is that they're beating below their talent and that the contracted development time and budgets made available to them is seriously hurting their games' quality. Churning out every year some unmemorable akshun RPG with zero innovation or lasting appeal isn't a good business practice on the long run. Focus Home should take notice. Keep your client pool smaller, but double dev time.

    Perhaps, but a lot of blame for this has to go to Capcom, which insisted on dumbing down Dontnod's original concept (called Adrift) into this cheap beat'em up mess. No other publisher would pick it up, so it was making shit over starving.

    Life is Strange looks kinda interesting, and the post-WW1 setting in Vampyr deserves some attention. Just don't expect a Troika/BIS/Obsidian-tier quality game.

    I'm not sure, there's nothing there that excites me about this, which has more to do with the (admittedly short) track record of the studio than the idea and setting behind the game. Those ideas certainly sound interesting, but they failed to properly explore these ideas in their last game.

    Oh, you can have "vampire" games that easily beat Rmember Me in the "terrible" department. Anyone remember this?



    Even Remember Me doesn't manage to reach such levels of cringeworthy.

    Post-WW1 setting alone is worthy to be noted in my little list.

    As for quality, that can wait until release time~

    So what does the letter Y have to do with this? Does it represent choice because the letter Y looks like it's a splitting pathway?

    That is some really silly symbolism there.

    There is a film made by Carl Theodor Dreyer titled "Vampyr Der Traum des Allan Grey". It is a very interesting look on vampires and worth watching. I do not know if someone from Focus watched it or their marketing department thought it would sound cool.

    The ones that love Twillight isn't exactly core gamer demographics.

    The first story featuring a "vampire" in the modern sense was called "The Vampyre" by John Polidori (wrongly attributed to Byron and featuring a byron'esque protagonist), though I don't know if they knew that or just picked the Y because it looked cooler and muh C&C.
