THEORY: Lou Graham is the Clan Toreador Vampire shown in the Reveal Trailer

Harlequin 0 120 Article rating: 5.0

Brian Mitsoda in a couple interviews hinted the player may encounter historic figures of Seattle's past in the game. Implying they were turned kindred at some point and how they have survived this long. One of the theories on social media that is slowly gaining steam is that the woman with unnaturally large pearl necklace (inside joke if this theory is true?) in the reveal trailer is actually Lou Graham famous Seattle Madam from over a century ago. Here is the side by side pic making the rounds, you decide.

Harlequin 0 97 Article rating: 5.0

Some nice chap on social media posted side by side comparisons of what we saw location wise in the demo and their Google Maps real life counter parts, the following images are what he found. It is pretty close to the representation of Boston in Fallout 4, very similar but with the settings own aesthetics overlay. Post your thoughts below;

KOTAKU: Weird Dancing Is Back For The Sequel

Harlequin 0 87 Article rating: No rating

Kotaku explores clubs and their use and popularity in modern vampire mythos.
 

In the demo that I saw last week at E3, there was plenty of blood sucking, demonic powers, and vampire faction in-fights. Personally though, I find that you can really judge a piece of vampire fiction based on what the clubs look like. Buffy The Vampire Slayer had The Bronze, which was both a hangout for the gang and a vampire feeding ground, and is considered a classic piece of vampire fiction. The Twilight series didn’t have any clubs at all, and is routinely mocked for being corny and bad. If Bloodlines 2 didn’t have a club, I was pretty sure I could write it off, but the game’s developers clearly think clubs are as central to the vampire mythos as I do.

“Clubs are like supermarkets for vampires,” Cara Ellison said. (She’s a writer on the game, as well as a former Kotaku contributor and a friend of mine that I hadn’t realized would be in town for the Bloodlines 2 demo.) “You go there to look at the selection.”

There’s one other special thing about this club that fans of the first Bloodlines game may recognize. The wild, arm-flinging dancing from the first game has returned, with the developers carefully studying the original dance from the 2004 game.

KOTAKU: E3 2019 Wit And Charm Are Powerful Weapons In Vampire

Harlequin 0 97 Article rating: No rating

Full impressions of the Bloodlines 2 demo @ E3 by Kotaku;
 

Bloodlines 2 looks like it has a wonderful breadth of experiences to offer the player, and it has a lot of vampire murder power options on top of that. The game isn’t just about picking what kind of powers you want to use, although that is a cool part of it; I picked the power set that allowed my vamp to turn into mist. Bloodlines 2 is also about deciding the kind of vampire you want to be, personality-wise. Are you a brute, using your powers to get your way, or are you more seductive? Is your word your bond, or are you willing to screw people over to get what you want? In the mission that the Hardsuit Labs developers showed me at E3, I could run the gamut from being like NoHo Hank in the HBO dramedy Barry—in other words, a total softie—to becoming the ultimate dirtbag.

In the E3 demo mission, one of the factions of vampires in the game needed me to get some data from another vampire called Slugg who was in hiding. The faction gave me ten thousand dollars to exchange for it, though it was also really clear that I could just murder him if bribery didn’t work. Slugg is a Nosferatu, which is a vampire who has been scarred by their transformation into a creature of the night, and he was also on everyone’s shitlist for generally being a shady guy. When I met up with Samuel, the contact who could find Slugg and an amusing character who had been turned during the ’80s tech boom, Samuel asked me to let Slugg live and come into the Nosferatu fold for protection. Samuel even said that I could still take the data and deliver it to the faction leader, as long as I didn’t kill Slugg.

RPG GAMER: Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood E3 Impression

Harlequin 0 85 Article rating: No rating

The full article can be read on their site, here is a preview;
 

The game is a third-person action RPG with both hand-to-hand combat and dialog-heavy sections of role-playing. The story itself, however, is not an immensely twisted, branching undertaking based on player choice and consequence, but rather a bit more on the linear side with two distinct endings available. The hands-off demo incorporated two scenarios, the first of which saw Cahal under the merciless Nevada desert sun, approaching a power plant that is corrupting its surroundings with the intention of disabling it. Using a special Penumbra vision mode, Cahal is able to determine what areas and buildings are spreading the bulk of the corruption, and focus his sabotage efforts there.

Combat in Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is a brutal and bloody affair. At any time, Cahal can shapeshift to lupine wolf form for its speed and agility, and, of course, into werewolf form for its lethality. Taking advantage of the werewolf’s strength, however, comes at a cost since it also opens Cahal up to the corrupting influence of the Wyrm. Shifting back and forth in short bursts, we watched as he took out the hapless armed guards at the power plant, eventually running afoul of a surprise adversary: another werewolf, this one corrupted by the Wyrm, a servant to the enemy. This battle was quite a bit more feral, with faces bashed in and limbs snapped and severed left and right.

Werewolves like Cahal wage a never-ending war against their inherent rage, represented by an on-screen meter. Should Cahal indulge his ferocious side, or come across a particularly egregious offense against nature, his Rage meter will rise, eventually causing him to lose control of his animal side and be unable to change back into human form. This can lead to some troubling complications down the line as it restricts his ability to communicate verbally, so the game is very much about walking that tightrope of emotional restraint.

List of Bloodlines 2 Factions

Harlequin 0 120 Article rating: No rating

A quick eyed person on social media posted this screen cap of one of the many demos of E3 and it shows what seems to be the factions in the game. Apparently the Anarchs are present as well as the Cam and perhaps some kind of indie Tremere (House Carna?). The thing that sticks out the most is the "Pioneers" faction, perhaps something to do with the thinbloods forming said faction? None the less, here is the image in question let me know that you think;
