With V:TM-B 2 just announced, Khajiit thought we could use a thread devoted to the series! Please post any news on the new game you find interesting (or disappointing should that happen) or stuff related to the old game. Doing a new play through as a Nosferatu? Tell us about it here! This one will probably pick back up where he left off with the Malkavian he started last year in the next few weeks.

I'm not much for vampires, but I have been interested in trying out the original one. I know that some of you very much enjoy it, so I was wondering about it. Is it sort of similar to a TES game in the type of gameplay, etc.? I notice some similarities but I don't know if it is just because it is also on the Gamebryo/Creation Engine. Also, what are the kinds of things that you really enjoy about the game (e.g. characters, locations, etc.)?

I saw some teasers for it on Gog. It looks cool. I am sure I will buy it. I remember playing the original tabletop rpg Vampire: The Masquerade back in the day. It had some really cool lore, and worked very well as a role playing game.

I liked the first game but I'm not bothering with this. It's way too modern in its style and looks like any other game now to be frank.

Still: Malks FTW! biggrin.gif

Going to install the first game now!

I am so excited. Never been more excited about any recent games than this to be honest. It’s about time we have a game devoted to vampire characters. Vampyr was decent but this game I’m sure will be tons of fun!

Ventrue’s my favorite.

I better get back to writing a vampire story lol.

I long for scenes where man hath never trod
A place where woman never smiled or wept
There to abide with my Creator, God,
And sleep as I in childhood sweetly slept,
Untroubling and untroubled where I lie
The grass below—above the vaulted sky.”

Well, it’s similar to TES in some ways and very different in others. The world is very interesting to explore, imo, but it’s a hub style game world instead of open world. Your character will be from one of a bunch of different vampire “races”, and each one has its own look and feel when it comes to play style (one race is focused on being able to get what they want by talking, another uses blood magic to destroy enemies, so there’s a little something for everyone.). It’s set in modern times so you’ll be using a variety of firearms and melee weapons are similar to Fallout (baseball bats, tire irons, combat knives, fire axe, even a sword), but melee combat is done in third person. Otherwise you can freely switch viewpoints just like in TES (ranged combat works best in first person, imo, but you can try it in third if you like). One area where V:TM-B shines is its dialogue. The language used can be foul at times but it suits the setting and there are so many choices when it comes to responding to npcs, some of which can carry dire consequences so you must choose your words carefully at times or be prepared for consequences. It’s a really good game that you can find on GOG for fairly cheap (cheaper if it’s on sale) and it includes the unofficial patch that allows it to run on modern machines. Hope you decide to check it out!

Word of warning if you do decide to get it: save playing as a Malkavian for a second play through. Their dialogue will make more sense after you’ve played through the game as a member of the other “races”.

Hopefully Khajiit will have some more Malk action for you soon! That said, she’s still in Hollywood :\ .

Ventrue: the silver tongued devils! Khajiit’s first V:TM-B character was a Ventrue because their in game description reminded this one of Imperials from TES.

Please post your story if/when you get it finished!

I agree. You will understand them a whole lot better on a second playthrough. And a fourth and fifth biggrin.gif

Then you should at some point! Khajiit doesn’t know how you feel about ModDB, but they have a decent sized collection of mods for the game there.

mods for the game

I tried one mod that lets you get companions, I think almost anyone not essential. Didn't work so good though.

Khajiit has only downloaded a couple of cosmetic mods, but for the most part enjoys the game as is. There are also mods that restore cut content, which could be interesting given everything we know about the rushed development of this game.

I can definitely recommend the Camarilla Edition for anyone playing. Don't remember exactly what it does now but I think it polishes the game and adds content and I do know I liked it.

@ Rader: GoG has V:TM-B on sale for $4.99 it seems. That is a steal.

Hmmm, looks like the latest update on GoG also updated the unofficial patch which did something to make all the doors in Brigitte’s game act weird. Graphics are a little messed up too. Everything seems fine if you start a brand new play through though. Looks like Khajiit will either need to figure out how to revert back to the previous version of the unofficial patch or just start Brigitte’s game over. This one is kind of leaning towards the later even though we were pretty far along.

So, if anybody gets the game from GoG, try setting it to not auto update. This should prevent what happened to Khajiit from happening to you.

*edit: update*
AWESOME! GoG Galaxy has the older updates saved under settings and all you have to do to revert back is click the appropriate button! All is well now so Brigitte can continue on her older game!

Got some screenies for you that will answer this question, birb!

Brigitte Found the serial killer and put an end to the “carnival of death”.

Uh oh. Someone’s made a mess in a pornographic film studio.

Khajiit doesn’t really care for it either. Luckily, Brigitte is about to head out to put an end to it!

Sewers always seem to suck in games! Once you find the Nossies, things are good again though.
