Harlequin 0 270 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 0 236 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 0 253 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.

List of Bloodlines 2 Factions

Harlequin 0 357 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;

RPS: I love you, scary lady of the latest Bloodlines 2 demo

Harlequin 0 179 Article rating: No rating

RPS has a.. shall we say, a interesting article about Bloodlines 2. More a love letter to one specific NPC then anything new it still is quite entertaining. Here is a snip;

The Bloodlines liker has, as they say, logged on. Paradox and Hardsuit labs have released a new gameplay trailer for Bloodlines 2. Excellent. It’s a smaller mouthful than the taste I had at GDC last year, but it’s a slightly different one. An amuse-bouche, we might say. Made of blood pudding, or something else all vampire-y. Brendy saw an extended demo, and has thoughts about the dancing. It’s pre-alpha, and does look a bit, whisper it, janky in places. But I am undeterred due to one small, key part of the video.

Look, I can tell you a couple of helpful things based on my own chats with the team. The voice over near the start, the whiny lad who says “welcome to the first day of the rest of your death!”, is your next door neighbour, and in full context he’s clearly meant to be a bit cringy. The loft apartment with brick walls and a big Charlie Day conspiracy map is your home. And the lady in a club with a lip ring who is pictured above? She is my best friend now. None of you can have her. Sorry, that’s just how it is.
