    The second half of the Guerrilla Collective stream today was occupied entirely by Paradox Interactive's Paradox Insider, an event within an event. As expected, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 made an appearance, but those who were looking forward to finally seeing some new gameplay were disappointed. The brief Bloodlines 2 segment seems to have been mainly dedicated to advertising the game's Collector's Edition. The Come Dance trailer from last month was replayed at the end, but this time it was followed by a very brief gameplay clip revealing that a certain iconic Brujah from the original game has returned for the sequel.


    They've brought back the original voice actress Courtenay Taylor, so that's nice. But if this is all Paradox have to show during what should have been E3, then I wonder if this game isn't going to be pushed into 2021.

    Imagine bringing back a character, even going to the trouble of getting the voice actress. Then instead of actually modelling the character, you just slap the same hair and cap on a model you had lying around. Do people not believe in consistency anymore?

    Not gonna lie, she does look like a man. But the bigger crime is she doesn't look anything like herself.

    With all the shit going down in Seattle (where Hardsuit is based), I would be surprised if it isn't pushed into 2021.

    It doesn't even sound like Damsel, let alone look like her. What's the point?

    I think they did a good job at preserving those tranny features.

    So out of all incredibly well written characters in the first game they decided to bring back the most annoying and infuriating one? Oh boy this just keeps getting better by the minute.

    There was a time when I wished someone did something with the Arcanum IP.
    Now I know better.

    And instead of being a satirization of real life anarkiddies (& Anarch idealism within the setting), this time around her views will be unironically portrayed in a sympathetic manner and taken seriously rather than made fun of.

    My first thought was that whoever makes their 3D models must be horribly incompetent, but honestly, lip piercing girl looks pretty hot in my opinion, so either they literally hired Prosper in the meantime or they made Damsel an ugly tranny on purpose. Either way, great job to hype up the fans.

    Honestly looks about the same as the original character. Probably will act the same too, its an easy addition considering the social climate, still topical. More relevant than before, really.
    So I don't know what everyone is mad about. You are becoming habitually triggered. They could announce they got a new coffee machine for their office and there'd be a thread saying WOW, JUST WOW, I CANT BELIEVE THIS, HOW DARE THEY

    This is why this remake already looks so awful. Those hipsters were only meant to be caricatures, but now the developers are hipsters themselves and see them as valid role models.

    Also, regarding graphics, just because you make something in HD doesn't mean it looks better.

    This is gonna suck so hard, avoid like the plague.
