Out of sheer curiosity, based off of the interest about the known Obsidian Vampire The Masquerade Game they were working on (which was cancelled because White Wolf was bought and the deal was cancelled).

If Obsidian bought the rights to do Vampire The Masquerade Game* would you actually be interested in such a game made by them? Say such as even a Kickstarter game?

*If they did buy a license to do a Vampire The Masquerade Game, the current license owner however has input and can reject ideas Obsidian may want to do with the game (and other things).

Let's see how their other cackstarter attempts end before going all-in on another project.

this sounds too contrived to not be a distinct possibility

is there something you want to tell us jaesun

This is just out of sheer curiosity. And there is NO WAY Feargus would even consider this. I was just curious.

I personally would back the shit out of this (I would love to see Obsidians take on this setting).

I would feel better if they rescued Leonard Boyarsky from his self-imposed imprisonment in Blizzard to be director on the project.

But yeah, I would back definitely support it since I really want to see Obsidian make a Horror RPG.

I mean when it's phrased like, do you want another game like Bloodlines, my answer is yes, of course. However, the closest thing they've done would be Alpha Protocol, and that doesn't exactly give me a whole lot of faith in them competently making the non-rpg/story bits.

Or are you saying it's just a game in the setting, not a Bloodlines first person type game? I actually think the Dishonored devs might be interesting candidates for that sort of thing.

Always and forever. Unfortunately god knows what they'll do with the rights. That MMO turned into a clusterfuck.

I would have said 'yes' without hesitation some 5 years ago, but now I can only say 'kingcomrade'.

I wouldn't back it on Kickstarter, that's for sure. Not that I have anything against Obsidian, it's just that pre-ordering games doesn't sit well with me.

If the game is good I will buy it and play it. If it's bad then I won't. It's as simple as that.

The question in the OP is kinda pointless.

Don't particularly care for Obsidian games in general. Dunno why Codexers are still dreaming about a quality product from those guys.

Masquerade and not Requiem? Gladly. Especially if they get Brian Mitsoda on board.

And keep his wife as far away as humanly possible from the project.

I'd back it... unless they put someone who hated the original in charge of the project.

I'd give it a shot. Not sure about Kickstarter, though... depends on what they'd plan on doing with the game.

Turn right after Alpha Centauri
Despite it's rushed and overly combat heavy last part, I consider Vampire:Bloodlines to be a fairly good RPG. If it were abything remotely resembling it, I might give it some support.

Why should OE need a KS for this?
I don't see how this would be a niche game. Aren't girlies getting their knickers wet over Vampires? The question would be more why some big publishers hasn't made a deal with OE about such a game yet. (Wouldn't neccessarily have to be Masquerade would it?)
Given how PE is shaping up to be far worse than I'd expected (at least from a character system and gameplay POV) at the start of the KS, OE'd need to be very convincing in a new KS campaign.

I would fucking love it if Double Bear Mitsoda got hired by Obsidian and then proceeded to make with them proper third/first person sequel to Bloodlines. All over that.

No, because I want such game to be playable.

Voted 'no'.:S Liked Bloodlines too much and I don't really trust Obsidian.:/ Only finished their Kotor sequel, mostly because I was a giant SW fan back then. Bought NWN 2, Alpha Protocol & F:NW, couldn't be assed to finish any of them.:| Backed their kickstarter for 20$, but I knew from the get go that I was basically gambling, never had high expectations for Pillars Of Eternity. Would be completely different with a 'Vampire The Masquerade' game, I'd get all excited and hyped up, only to end up disappointed and angry.=(

Obsidian is the perfect choice to stay true to bloodlines and troika legacy. A great game but bug ridden and almost unplayable at release, i can see them deliver that, and now they have the help of the excellent paradox testing team its mandatory.

Uhm, some of us would like a game with fun gameplay.

I'm sure they would deliver on the writing and C&C front (the reputation mechanics of New Vegas and PoE would obviously be a good fit for the vampire clans).

EDIT: I can't believe I missed the obvious sarcasm of that post. :D
