    Dunno about y'all, but I want to play as a full-blooded Tremere, preferably of a lower generation. :M

    Maybe its a scheme to pay less taxes, have a failed project for which you say you lost huge amount of money that made you operate with net loss.

    Ah, but there can be no such thing as a full-blooded Tremere, seeing as how they are nothing more but a mongrel bloodline of the Tzimisce. Indeed, it is a pet theory of mine that Tremere blood used to Embrace someone, but without the surrounding ritual involving blood of the Council of Seven, will result in a regular Tzimisce, perhaps with a greater aptitude for Koldunic Sorcery than for Vicissitude.

    Paradox Executives whenever Crusader Kings developers are threatening to quit.



    Jokes aside, it saddens me a little whenever I see this thread getting bumped, yet there's never any new piece of information about the state of this game. No matter how bad it is (and if it ever gets released, oh boy, it will be bad), it's still better to get a VTMB sequel and at least laugh about how bad it is than not getting a VTMB sequel at all.

    You can go laugh about how any nu-game is shit, if it's so funny. Why must it be VTMB? I hear they released "Fallout" 4, go have some satisfying chuckle. Your entire existence must be full of joy since the late 00's.

    On the bright side, now Mitsoda free to work on the Codex dream project, another entry in the wildly succesful Panic at Multiverse High franchise.

    There's just no sense of discovery and adventure anymore, is there. Everything is made too easy, and your paths to quest objectives are highlighted at the press of a button. This can only satisfy achievement collectors who are in a rush to display them at Steam social. Notches on their gaming thrones.

    Every teen wants to be a prince/princess of the punks. What scares me is that those devs are in their mid-twenties or thirties already, and yet they think like teens.

    What are you talking about? The only commonality between Tremere and Tzimisce in V5 is Dominate and the council is no more.

    Bloodlines is a finished work that didn't need a sequel. This shitshow is brought by people who thought that they need one.

    What people want is to relive the same experience they had back then, but it's also impossible.

    That could be said about any sequel, ever. We can't relieve the same experience because well, we got old. It's like when you taste something again and it isn't as great as you remember. Taste buds have numbed with age. It works mostly the same with games, games have arguably become worse but we've definitely become numb.

    That being said, I don't necessarily want a sequel to Bloodlines. I want another proper RPG in that universe or hell, at least in a similar universe. And it looks like nobody wants to make such game anymore.
    The name Bloodlines 2 was a (successful?) marketing stunt, and I guess most people knew that. We've simply chosen to overlook that because we wanted a game in the same verge as VTMB, that's all.

    And honestly, if they somehow release this game and it's horrible but still has some small good parts, that's a win in my book. Better than nothing. Will I buy it though? Absolutely not.

    I don't know man, for me something is still better than nothing. It's not gonna taint my experience with the original game because that's already well in the past and it's not going to taint the prestige of the series because there's no prestige, there is no series and there never was.

    Probably still way more younger than almost everyone on the codex, but I see your point.

    Yup, the whole 5E book is like this. No wonder a game based on this was going to end up being shit. Who knew?
