You know, VTM:B wasn't good because it was set in that franchise, right? Also, that franchise is already pozzed to hell and back. I can't imagine it going well in CY+5. At least in the original masquerade game, it wasn't 100% pro-poz.

All they ever did was a mediocre Free to Pay multi-FPS.

Maybe they're big fans of the VtMB or something but just that is alarming.

Also unless they decide to set it in the same era as the previous game lore wise, White Wolf pozzed the setting beyond repair (and when we say beyond repair, paradox decided to lock them out of their own franchise in an attempt to salvage something before it became completely radioactive… that bad).

This anon speaks the truth. The writers really made VtM:B the fantastic game it is, selectively picking from the established lore. I have pointed out before how this game is surprisingly redpilled – the world is portrayed as a cesspool of filth and degeneracy… the Kindred struggle to preserve their ethno state from the invading Kuei-jin foreigners…the Camarilla having to enforce a form of population control to prevent things from spiralling out of control…

It is also worth noting how few niggers there are in the game, and how characters react differently to you based on your clan & sex.

You're blowing things out of proportion.

The world is portrayed as a political battlefield where everyone is a pawn, willing or not, of someone else, not a "cesspool of filth and degeneracy".

The Kindred aren't fighting against the Kuei-Jin either. That's something that is only lightly refered every now and then. Saint Monica only has a spy that you fight in an warehouse, Downtown and Hollywood have absolutely nothing on them as well. Even Chinatown has actually little content regarding the Juei-Jin.

There's mentions of a previous large scale battle between them and the Anarchs (but not the Camarilla) but they are supposedly calm now, bidding their time.

>the Camarilla having to enforce a form of population control to prevent things from spiralling out of control

The population control isn't exclusive to the Camarilla, they just choose to enforce their rules far more strictly, but the Anarchs will tell you to off a Plaguebearer as well. It's just the Masquerade business, as usual.

>It is also worth noting how few niggers there are in the game

Considering they are a minority, that's not surprising. But then again, you have Fat Larry, who's a great character; Lacroix's bodyguard, the Sheriff; Skelter with the Anarchs and I think a few others as well.

>how characters react differently to you based on your clan & sex

Reacting to your clan is fairly natural considering the world itself, really have no idea what you were expecting. Reacting to your sex isn't actually that present. Mostly extra seduction options like getting gun lessons for sex in hollywood, but that's mostly it.

59b73b  No.16243011


I wish the game wasn't such a bore to install, I recall the resolution being quite fucked as a problem.

Also the lack of tooltips and information making scrolls and often stats a complete mystery as to what they do.

It's funny that the game is partially a Diablo clone with loot mechanics and even a Town Portal scroll to your base, but it really lacks some of the QoL stuff we are probably used to today.

Also the camera was utter trash, dunno if there was a way to zoom out.

I actually preferred some of the aspects in that game, specifically having a party to rely on. This meant not only combining different strengths and weapons, but it made the Beast even more of a risk.

It's funny to play VTMB as a psychopath, reaching 3 Humanity right after leaving your apartment, because then Frenzy is just auto-play for a bit.

But in Redemption, having a party of 3 psychopaths that will go for each other's throats as soon as someone touches them isn't so fun anymore. Even worse when you begin abusing powers, since hunger leads to more frenzy.

Only better example of gameplay like this I've found was Rimworld with the Vampire mod installed.

You fully know well why people tend to do so. Ironically though, if they follow the lore, the elder vampires would be raining fire and staking the 'new' pozzed vamps on a daily basis or puppet them to do stupid shit that profits them and discard those pozzed idiots like NPCs that they are (same shit Lacroix puts you through). Elder vamps mostly lived through medieval ages and such and they tend to hold the values from that time and faggotry is the most disgusting shit ever even now and especially during those times.

Fuuuuuuuuccckkk that, open world wouldn't work at all unless they went with something like far cry 2, but even then it would still fuck with the story since you could go to places early and fuck up quests. Maybe just make all the map separate with you going through chronologically by story, then after the story you can explore all the map as an open world, with different kinds of maps, enemies, weapons, random encounters, etc depending on ending.

Tessera plagiarized a couple of fixes for the 'true patch gold' which lead to him and wesp getting into huge flame wars on planetvampire and the codex. Should be able to still google them.

Basically wesps patch adds alot of unused assets he datamined into the game. Almost any old shit hes found gets added in.

Even in his fixes only version the prostitutes each have multiple voice actors because of 'recovered' lines, recovered item models are given names, descriptions and stats made up by him and are arbitrarily jammed into a map, quest rewards are changed according to what he thinks is good balance etc. etc. Theres a fuller list here: http://www.tessmage.com/forum/index.php?topic=57843.0

Basically I replayed the game a few years ago with wesp patch and the game felt completely different to what I played in 2004. Worse. Then found the 'true' patch which doesn't fuck with the devs original balancing.

But what's the point? It's not like a WoD vampire can survive sunlight considering it's instant death for them. All you're doing is putting a shitty timer for no good reason.

A day/night cycle makes sense in a game like Darkwood where it helps heighten tension, since the player needs always to keep in mind how far away they are from their shelter and the whole game is built around exploring during daylight and trying not to get raped during nighttime.

What do you faggots want from a non official successor?

I want to remove clans and replace them with sects that vampires can choose to join, that work more like dual classes in D&D where you cut the sect you were born into and move to a new one limiting your progress within that class to your exp limit.

I also want to redo vampires and make them a monster under a waxy skinlike cover that melts in sunlight but cracks under physical stress.

I also want to have a first entry where you play as a completely new creature of the night where you are thrown into a new world with no knowledge of the world and no-one to guide you, where you slowly open your eyes up to the realization that you aren't the only thing stalking the nights.

Obviously the 90sish setting is a major part of it, the fashion, the technology being on the cusp, the small online communities able to spread this sort of information, it's the perfect time for this sort of game.


The franchise certainly isn't the core source of it's quality, but it's definitely part of it's quality, the vamp clans are great, also the name final death, and the name of the series and the way it interlinks a whole lot of different horror fantasy factions, that's really all that WoD contributes to it though, also I remember reading that the story written following of of VTMB falls to shit, something about Smiling Jack's ghoul magically becoming a vampire and then becoming a messiah.

A day/night cycle could be present for a few reasons, but it obviously would not work at all in a typical linear RPG like the original game, only with a somewhat sandbox world.

It's indeed a time limit placed on the player, where sunrise means death if you're outside (and possibly inside as well due to torpor) but the first obvious consequence of this is that it binds you to a certain radius around the place where you can rest. Unlocking extra havens, either by buying them or making a deal with another vampire would expand the areas you can operate in, since you have somewhere to retreat for the night nearby.

It doesn't mean those are your only options, though. Finding any place that's hidden from the sunlight would allow you to sleep the day away as well. Middle of the sewers, abandoned warehouse, anything really. It's just not as secure and you are more likely to be found in those places, leading to a daytime combat situation or masquerade violation.

It also means Gangrel get a slight advantage since Protean can let them "sleep" anywhere in the world.

It's also a good way to introduce some extra tension in the game with simple base building. Your haven is supposed to be a secret, but break the Masquerade enough times and before the Sheriff comes to give you an external lobotomy, you're going to have hunters snooping around during the day. Getting servants to keep watch, or cameras or spells (if you're Tremere to keep your Haven secure is key, unless you want to be flushed out and have to find another as this one is currently too hot.

Finnaly, it's a good way to structure time in an RPG by turns. Every night is a turn, everytime you sleep, every faction\character that can act in the word does a specific act, changing it slightly. Best example of this I can point out would be Shadow of Mordor\War, where completing a mission or advancing time makes all the other Orcs act their specific events that you did not interfere with.

Except that, in WoD, you can have Mages and Hunters acting during the day and Werewolves acting during the night as well, each shaping the city around you, making some areas more or less dangerous, introducing a slight amount of diplomacy with them and changing the dangers of what you face.

>Open world is terrible since you could find areas related to quests and fuck it up

There's plenty of time in Bloodlines where you can go to areas specific to a quest and have no such problem. They are either locked behind a door you can't lockpick, a door that you can't interact with or sometimes there's a prop blocking your way there, like the truck that blocks your path until you start the Plaguebearer quest and speak with Damnsel.

I'd like to see Vampires being the blood itself, more specifically a virus that infects it. The vampire itself IS the virus, the body they reanimate from the dead is just the shell they use to prey among the same species (which is already part of the blurb in WoD)

Said virus mutates blood cells, making them capable of regenerating his body at a fast rate but also capable of mutating them into supercells that degrade fast. That's basically what Vampiric Strength is, the blood turning into incredibly strong muscle tissue that has much greater strength, but quickly breaks down after a while and it has to be regenerated afterwards. Ghouls are addicts to this drug that enjoy it's benefits until it starts to become addictive, where they need more of it because their own body won't regenerate the tissue they lost so easily.

The virus itself affects blood cells but isn't produced there. Rather, when a brain shuts down on death and begins to deteriorate, the blood will regenerate it in a slightly different version, capable of producing more virus and controlling the rest of the body. It also gets to keep the memories and knowledge of the previous person, gaining sentience and actually believing itself to be that person.

Only after this, does the heart go through a similar mutation, where although it doesn't beat, it's still responsible for making the blood flow in some unknown way. Stake in the heart stops blood circulation, the brain gets cutoff from the rest of the system and quickly degrades until death. Cut off the head, same thing happens. The vampire body is dead and constantly degrading so he needs to constantly repair it, but since it can't produce blood any more it needs to take it from other humans.

Every power that vampires typically have is either a rapid genetic mutation in their cells that the virus can produce or a psychic power that their brain is capable of using. Every "clan" with their disciplines is actually a different strain of the virus.

The Blood itself is also a container of information (in the form of the virus strain) and energy. The longer a vampire lives, the more the virus mutates and the more efficient it's cells become, capable of storing higher amounts of energy and evolving different capabilities.

There you go, Sci-Fi vampires that aren't as cringy (but also not as cool) as mythological ones.

Good ideas, but falls flat because of the settings. Only elders and some really crafty ancillae possess more than one but never too many havens, because the domain is yours only if you can keep it and you can only exist in one place at a time. The alternative would be to deal with other vampires, make alliances to gain access to their guest safehouses but even such places are not entirely safe.

Hunters snooping around your haven is good, forces you to create a ghoul or two to guard you during daytime.

No mages though. Seriously. OWOD game lines does not mix well. And mages do not snoop around, they scry you from their sanctum and rain fire on your ass easy, and making deals with mages as a vampire means you signed up to be their bottom bitches and lab rat.

Werewolves do not prowl in urban centres, they are only active in the outskirts of the cities or in a really small rural town. Vampires usually have no business outside the cities proper anyway.

As a massive faggot who story told Vampire games for 4 years….

No way you can make Vampire into an MMORPG without it being utter garbage.

Seeing a bunch of identical vampires hanging out doing emotes in town square or some shit just is not the Vampire experience.

I think they hope to make it like a Secondlife RP server, but that's not mass money. If you have a bunch of people running instanced dungeons and doing group PVP then you've lost the idea of what Vampire is.

What WOULD be refreshing is for a company to put out a massive, high quality story teller creation kit/game. Kind of like Never Winter Nights did.

Now that you've mentioned yet, I googled "cringy sci-fi vampires" and end up finding that I've just written the backstory for Planet of the Vampires without even knowing about the film.

This looks cheasy as fuck, I gotta see it someday.


I was thinking along the lines of Lost in Blue, a game for the 3DS about surviving in an island, where how far you can explore depends on your resources and preparation. You get a sense of progression from finding or making better ways of surviving, since it lets you go somewhere new and have access to newer resources.

Also Dead by Daylight, where you can unlock safe houses around the map and skip the night safely. There's a lot of tension when the sun is setting and you're looking for a safe house (although this really isn' the best implementation of this idea)

I think the concept with mesh quite well with the whole "gilded cage" that vampires have going for them.

>the domain is yours only if you can keep it

Correct, but does the same happen to Havens? A vampire having multiple apartments around the world so he has a safe house if he travels there isn't that far fetched, all he needs is to inform the local Prince.

And you don't even need all options to be 100% safe, on the contrary. Your own haven is (in theory) the safest option, but it might not be available if you're too far. Other vampire's guest houses are the second best option if you are allowed in them, which means brokering a deal or you're working for them. Sleeping in an abandoned location is the least safe option, but it's freely available any time if you can find those kind of places

The very same happens to havens unless the local law and the prince say so and enforce that law. The nuances of the vampire law is that while you cannot outright kill other vampire without the princes consent, you can make their unlife as fucking miserable as it can be. So in theory (or a typical VtM tabletop game), if a vampire takes another vampires haven because they can, it will turn into a feud. Either the invader pushes off the owner off the social ladder either through strength, guile, or political manoeuvring (i.e. enemy of my enemy case), and deprive the owner of the haven itself, allies, and resources; OR the owner does that to the invader sevenfold to set an example (i.e. "do not FUCK with me) for other aspiring invaders.

Many vampires will take haven in abandoned or deserted places such as a cemetery, only lucky kindred or kindred working under a very powerful patron will get an apartment, contacts, and resources like Suckhead (canon Vtm:B protags moniker). If they have to stay at somebody elses domain, they got two options if the domain owner is not on good terms with the kindred themselves. 1) Announce their presence as per the Tradition and ask for their permission to stay within their domain (you will probably get a day stay graveyard or something like that), definitely comes with string attached. 2) Hide in a local warehouse or some place like that secretly, no one else needs to know. Needless to say if this gets out, there will be trouble. Any vampires who overextend their reach and has to race the sun is either: a) a fucking waste of unlife idiot b) normal kindred done goofed c) an Anarch

Making alliances and trading favours is the most likely scenario. But in the kindred society, allies can become enemies and vice versa in a second. And reputation is everything because kindred do not exactly have a social media or mass media to communicate quickly nor will they use it so. Their news are from words of mouth and meetings at elysiums, all in all pretty dated but it keeps secret a secret and masquerade a masquerade.

Reputation is the another way of progressing, because people will want to ally with you, want favours from you because you can get shit done. VtM:B did this really well. You started off as a cannon fodder who will most likely live for a week top, then you start getting shit done and becoming absurdly powerful in a short span of time (being an 8th gen kindred is also probably a factor) and people from all sects come to you with offers and promises, even the Sabbat notices you.

VtM is an interesting setting because of all the nuances of kindred politics, kindred daily unlife, and its biblepunk mythology behind it that makes it unique across all tabletop games.

A major plot point is literally that Lacroix would lose all credibility and be ousted almost immediately if it's found out that he was working with them as they're seen as the enemy and one of the larger reasons why lacroix was able to get back into cali was because the anarchs were weakened fighting the kuei-jin.


Of course. Not to mention what made VTMB so great was not solely the setting, but also the talents of the writing team, as well as the period of the early 2ks where goth culture was still a thing, and SJWism had not yet fermented. That time will never return again.

That's not outright war though, they aren't directly attacking each other at the moment. Kuei-Jin have their place in Chinatown, nobody goes bothering them there and so far they aren't bothering anyone else out of that place either.

Kuei-Jin and Kindred are enemies, of course, which is why LaCroix working with them is a big no-no, but their current situation is not outright war, they are just outsiders, keeping a watch on the local kindred (in case one of them ever gets a coffin with an Antediluvian, for instance)

The other poster I replied too was blowing things out of proportion to make a cheap comparison between them and muslims invading a country, when that's incredibly dumb.

They are more akin to the chinese currently, getting influence in many places and infiltrating the economy of a country without outright warring with them. If he wanted some more confirmation bias, he could have gone with that instead.

9b40e7  No.16256755


Anon, I have literally just explained to you the immediate history of the game, that the kuei-jin are at war with the anarchs, and camarilla, because of their attack and subsequent takeover of chinatown through force, that weakened the anarchs to such a degree that the camarilla could just waltz back in after being exiled for over a hundred years. The game takes place over like 3 days in world time. And during that time the camarilla/anarchs ARE at war with the kuei-jin, considering the kuei-jin just recently fucking invaded them and took over a city. It is just that the kuei-jin are tolerating you, the childe, at the moment, because you may possibly lead them to the stupid sarcophogus or weaken the camarilla/anarchs as a result.

You were mixing shit up in a colossal manner. Exarchs are the gigantic assholes of the cosmic order of the Mage: the Awakening, not Ascension which has the ending you are referring to.

The Technocracy is not exactly your typical bad guy and lots of people love them for that reason. They are not really that bad aside from stagnating reality unintentionally, the and fight between them and the mages are non physical for the most part.

It does show a shift in perspective, kinda like how in Delta Green DG teams up with MJ-12 and are brought back into the fold, when they spent most of the 00s demonizing MJ-12 and painting them as complete, amoral monsters.

Of course, they have moved onto something else other than writing TRPGs. Then landwhales and proto-soylets starts creeping into the company and you know the rest.

It's just kind of expected I guess, I bet other communities aren't as cynical about this either, the only confusing part is that it's not hard to understand why VTMB was so good but developers don't seem interested in figuring this out somehow?


I internally consider that a part of socjus and current year meme references. I don't get how current year writers can't control themselves.

Human Revolution was a great addition to the Deus Ex lineup. The game was almost as good as the original, certainly better than the game which shall not be named. Mankind Divided on the other hand, while it was a great game as well, suffers from the fact it wasn't actually finished.

This is what confuses me, most people don't seem to ever clue in to the patterns here with remakes and the like. The same cycles and same mistakes repeated over and over, and yet they never clue in that they shouldn't get hyped up and pre-order and suck off a game before it's come out.

False, as far as base gameplay like movement and shooting sure, it's better because it's newer and they've managed to iterate on these things for well over a decade, as far as world building, writing and story go, absolutely not, everything has been shat up, there isn't a single thing in Human Revolution or Mankind Divided that is relevant, the game threw away conspiracy theory shit for themes about transhumanism trying to be a deep and meaningful discussion about the topic, only to fall flat and say nothing with both DX and IW standing head and shoulders above both in at least those regards, even the level design isn't as good as vanilla DX.

IW is shit but there are elements that are worthy of the Deus Ex name, there is nothing in HR that is worthy of the Deus Ex name. Weapon upgrades were nice I guess.


I'd like to think it's because people here see more of what's in a game, but I suspect it's because of how cynical the whole site is, but even if you disconnect that element the game is just giving off signals.

Instead of the vampires being "descended" from Cain, it is left a mystery. This makes sense in theory but it removes a lot of the mysticism of the setting. In cWoD, you could be an atheist but you would be wrong.

That's just not true though, all the conspiracy shit is still there it's just buried and hard to find, like conspiracy shit would be in that time. The game takes place long before the original Deus Ex and the Illuminati stranglehold on information is still very much in play. When the original Deus Ex starts Bob Page has already carried out his coup against Morgan Everett and the Illuminati was a shadow of its former self. It also helps that in the original Deus Ex you were a member of an organization under the direct control of Bob Page whereas in Human Revolution you just happened to be a member of an organization that happened to have a HVT scientist whom the Illuminati wanted, obviously discovering these facts wouldn't be a walk in the park. Did you even play Missing Link?

It's not a mystery anymore, the most popular optional material has been incorporated into 2e so each of the Clans are originally separate ancient curses and were similar enough that they incestuously mingled with each other forming the Clans of the modern nights. There is an intricate link with the Stryx which isn't just optional history anymore so the mystery now is more on whatever the Stryx are and where they came from since they can reproduce any vampire curse as they wish.

In HR the ideas were reversed, conspiracy theories wasn't the core point of the game it was transhumanism, the retard devs behind it had this high idea about exploring transhumanism and the issues this would bring about and then spent a few years huffing their own farts trying to make the game like it was some kind of insightful look into the world in an age of transhumanism, except it says nothing of value on the topic and far less than what Deus Ex itself conveyed. Nothing HR does puts it on the same level of Deus Ex, it's a disappointing and superfluous prequel that defines things that never needed defining, and it's existence actively debases the original Deus Ex, and cheapens multiple characters.

99c18f  No.16262650


I think the anime comparison is best. They wanted to make a GitS game, or were giant fans of it, and happened to have the Deus Ex license. The conspiracy stuff is nice, but it is sparse; while the transhumanism stuff is shit, and everywhere. It doesn't help that the most interesting aspect that it would touch on, the soldiers getting mind fucked by parts of their augs and being used in black ops that are against what they originally signed up for, is barely touched on. That, if they were going with transhumanism as a theme, is what they should have focused on, and done more with the conspiracies opening up based on discovering more about it.

But we see augmented individuals throughout the game and they're nothing like Jensen. Even JC and Paul, ostensibly a quantum leap in terms of technology seem to wield far less advance enhancements than what Jensen did.

HR and MD are just mediocre games that have next to nothing to do with Deus Ex, especially in terms of themes or aesthetics.

6f92b7  No.16266977


That only seems like a copout because of how completely out of place the augs in HR and MD are. Navarre and Herman's augs don't at all compare to Adam's augs. Herman would be creaming himself over half the fun shit Adam has at his disposal and even JC's nanomachines don't seem all that impressive when you can't do anything Adam can do.

59b73b  No.16267307





I'll play devil's advocate here for a second.

Pretty much every ability that Adam has, JC either has it as well, a better one or no need for it.

Strength? JC has it as well and can spec it in 2 different ways even.

Speed? Compare the movement and jump boost that JC has with his Speed Aug to the pathetic sprint that Adam gets.

Cloaking is present for both and JC has a longer lasting one, same thing for walking silently.

Icarus system is missing but JC can instead have an augmentation to limit fall damage without making a huge show about it.

The whole "Spin around and throw many metal balls to your oponents" also seems great until you consider anyone working with a partner and what a terrible idea it ends up being, especially since you need to expose yourself and be at the center. Chalk that one up as "R&D had a brain fart"

Hacking as an augmentation stops being relevant when JC has the skills required for it instead, but in IW war, it returns in a faster and better system (but not as fun at all)

Now, it's true that JC doesn't start with any of this neat stuff, but that's explained in the game, he's slowly adapting to them and installing augmentations as he goes along. However he is compatible with an incredible of really powerfull ones.

Meanwhile, Adam starts with a mechanical body that doesn't require that much adaptation and is already equipped with most of the stuff he will use, but it's not as strong.

Navarre and Herman not having some of the stuff Adam has is easy to understand since most of those augmentations require that someone's body doesn't outright reject them, making you an addict to neuropozine in the process.

Adam was also working for a private company and being the lab rat, so having top of the line stuff is perfectly natural. Governmental agents in a regular team will likely only have what has been well tested so far and they can afford.

Adam is geared towards being a multitool while Navarre and Herman are geared towards combat.

205ba1  No.16267312


And look how hard it fucked things up, Navarre's face is only augmented on one side for a reason, they wanted players to have a glimpse into what she looked like before the augmentations to see what sacrifice she had to make to become the ultimate killing machine only for the Denton's to roll up practically born with all of their gifts, she may not say it but she hated you from day one because you didn't have to give up a thing. Then HR happens and the augs are actually very stylish and easy to conceal, the augmented parts of the face blend in with the skin. I don't get how this is still conversation, we know that HR while fun at a base level to play is just a shallow misinterpretation of Deus Ex. The other person pointed it out, they didn't want to make Deus Ex, but that's the licence they had.

59b73b  No.16267316


Disregard all this however, because the truth is the devs just wanted visible augmentations since cyborgs look cool but wrote themselves into a corner since they couldn't make them look stronger than what you get in the next games, nor could they craft levels that take into account something like jumping 10 times your regular jumping height in to the air.

Also disregard the Icarus Landing or the Typhoon, those are just gimmicks to make trailers out of in order for marketing to show off the game. Their actual use in the game is limited and cumbersome to the point that they can almost be considered wasted Praxis points.

The whole thing was the devs starting from the end and writing back to the start, ignoring the many problems that came along with that.

They could have made DX3 to happen after IW and even made Nanomachines a rarity that either you only see someone else use or you only get an option to change towards it later in the game, enabling them to have a world full of robotic proesthetics like they wanted anyway.

And the whole neuropozine was solely because they couldn't think of another way to make augmentations look bad or dangerous, despite the many narrative hooks they have for that from people complaining about unfair competition to dangerous illegal mods, or even GITS already having figured this one out and making augmentations a golden cage.

205ba1  No.16267324


Neuropozine is a cop out, the real reason why Adam's abilities aren't the same as JCs is because they didn't want players to blatantly break the level design like what's available in Deus Ex with players casually leaping up multiple stories of a building, or sprinting across the map in mere seconds, the augs in the original Deus Ex are due to old game jank and if they bothered with a remake they would be rebalanced and made easier to understand.


Why did you deconstruct your own argument?

There's nowhere to go after IW, the devs wrote themselves into a wall with making it too sci fi, retarded shit like the nano bomb, and nano rounds, the game has many faults, but I unironically believe it has enough good features that a fan remake could fix the game and story elements.

59b73b  No.16267338


>Why did you deconstruct your own argument?

Because while it's fun to speculate and play devil's advocate, it's still doing the devs work for them and ingame reasons do not make up for the actual rational beyond some decisions.

>There's nowhere to go after IW

I'll disagree here since there's actually many ways to go afterwards. Everyone always assumes that the symbiosis end, being a continuation of the first game, is a pretty solid alternative, but what if JC ends up being quite the tyrant himself because of the way he now judges everyone and a group of rebels forms up to fight against what's essentially a living God?

Remember that his solution is networking with as many people as possible and make decisions by essentially holding referendums automatically in nanoseconds for everything, thus making it fair for the majority. However this is pretty much extreme democracy and as such it can fail for the exact same reasons, the biggest one being mob rule.

You could have a faction that manipulates the media to change the way everyone thinks and this indirectly influence how JC rules the world. Real life conspiracies tied in with a lot of narrative opportunities.

>making it too sci fi

They can use much of this to roll it back however. Nano ammo production is restricted and regulated so only law enforcement and the army can use it, anyone else is SOL, which means criminals and our rebel group must use conventional ammo. Picking weapons from your enemies lets you use them and thus nano ammo, but you can't stock up on it as easily.

Nanoaugmentations can be rolled back as well as being too strong for the masses. Either because you can't rewrite their DNA like it was expected to make them compatible or because they are dolled out as prizes for performance, you end up creating a caste of super-humans and everyone else is a ghetto nigger, something they have to fight against using regular augmentations and thus making them far more common.

>the game has many faults, but I unironically believe it has enough good features

I liked many of the augs it had since it streamlined their use a lot with passive ones and all the bots. The game could really use some meta-programming so you make augmentations trigger in certain situations automatically but that goes for the first game as well.

277aef  No.16267359


I agree with you, most of the IW endings give ample room to expand. The Illuminati ending is basically about keeping the status quo, so you could end up playing another game set in a cyberpunk dystopia with all the conspiracy stuff. Omar is post-apocalypse. While the ending where JC merges with Helios might appear utopian the way it's worded and spoken makes it sound rather ominous.

Templar ending would be a complete shitshow because we all know they would have turned in into "oy vey it's annuda nano-shoah", though playing as a baseline human on the side of the Templars would make for an interesting change of perspective (though fairly boring in terms of gameplay because it removes all complexity from character customization).

As for universal ammo, they can just retcon that shit out. As for using nanites, IIRC they still haven't figured out a way to make them accessible to the public. Alex, much like JC and Paul, is a tube baby specifically bred to be able to use augs.

When I said there's nowhere to go after IW I wasn't talking about a continuation of the story, the story itself could easily be followed on, I'm more talking about technologically, it will just keep moving away from Cyberpunk, and by that I mean the problems that are presented that make the world what it is are hand waved away, there's inequity in IW, even though nano replication is at the point where a weapon can itself contain the tools to construct it's own ammunition as needed, JC can rebuild himself in an instant seemingly anywhere in the world, technologically it just goes kind of too far.

You could retcon that shit out but I guess it's just a bit too far, the game wants to solve too many problems where the point of cyberpunk is an exacerbation of where we are now with more advanced technology that gives us what we want but not what we need.

277aef  No.16267376


IW opens up with some random dude obliterating the whole of Seattle with a nanite bomb, so the more problems they solve with technology, the more they create.

Let's say that all endings of IW got merged into one, like they did with DX, you'd still end up with Templar waging war against anyone augmented, the Illuminati kiking it up like usual, the Omar pushing human modification further and further, on top of launching a bunch of nukes, and Helios trying to keep a lid on things and prevent everyone from killing each other.

>IW opens up with some random dude obliterating the whole of Seattle with a nanite bomb, so the more problems they solve with technology, the more they create.

Yeah but the problems aren't the right kinds of problems, the problems are supposed to be based on ones we have now, things like automation replacing jobs, the class divide, a lack of food security, abuse of power by corporations, loss of purpose, information overload, etc. The games still focused on these too, no idea why they overdid the sci fi elements.

That actually sounds like a shitty continuation, it seems like too much of a retread, one thing that IW did well is that it cut many of the factions out and replaced them with completely new ones, or hid old factions behind new veneers, I think that's one of the few things it did well, things felt new, even if new meant retarded at the same time.

They are but the games that make up the most sales are the big ones that release any given year, especially on consoles, if you look at the most successful indie titles which are extremely few on consoles, it's barely hitting 1 million units sold, and that's for the small handful that manage to find even middling success.

Gamebooks are just guidebooks, not rulebooks.

I went into a low level campaign where we started with magic items that specifically have no basis in any book and the GM did this for every character, everyone got unique but trivial shit. The setting we used was some old desert city from a module, loosely used as a basis.

I had a "mark and recall" homebrew ring and a homebrew mythril shirt of speed that doubled my running speed I already took a running feat so I was fucking ice dragon sorcerer dick-theif Sanic and my character concept was a dumbass but charismatic sorcerer-thief who B&E'd rich fuckers with scrolls of water and basic ray of ice magic to break locks. The campaign was basically experimental as fuck and we each came up with our own character concepts that weren't supposed to work and we bumble-fucked our way through a module.

The other dudes were a Warlock-Paladin and a Kobold barbarian-bard, raised by dwarves, who attached a bunch of strings to his actual fucking axe. The Warlock-Paladin was a fallen angel and was playing both sides pretty hard and thus had a "Curse of Duality" where he assigned two functions to eachother on a table and he had to select a pair, if he rolled Even he used the Warlock ability and Odd he used the Paladin ability, and since he had to do this for even his heals shit got crazy as fuck. Natural 20's means either both happened or the one he wanted happened, both at double strength. If he rolled a 1, the GM picked a target and used whatever was the WORST POSSIBLE at double strength. The Kobold had his Axe-Axe, which allowed him to play songs and perform while swinging his Axe and a ring of minor healing with 50 rechargable (at a shop) charges. Because fuck me if he was going to let Chaos War Paladin fuck up the entire campaign by bolting the fucking king.

I was specifically the under-powered one in that campaign, but I did really fuck up one of the GM's big boys HARD when I was caught solo with a mark and recall backstab strategy.

Point is no one ever uses the fucking rulebook as a goddamned bible like they expect fucking EVERYONE to do.

I hope you don't mean the recent Call of Cthulhu game because they are working on a Werewolf game, but if you look at the DLC there's a season of the wolf expansion, and both games are slated for 2020, so I suspect they rolled them into one game. It's probably going to be like that Call of Cthulhu game in terms of dungeons but with hubs too.

I would have preferred it to have a peaceful death and no new game ever be made. Werewolf will probably be no different. No modern gaming company would be able to do it justice, it isn't possible into today's gaming environment and I'm not even talking about it being political.

What pisses me off are all these drones that want a new game no matter what, they can't let something good go unmolested, they need to have some company molest it so they can get their next fix which won't be anywhere near as good as the first because of drones like them accepting all the caners plaguing the industry. People want remakes and sequels of old games made in a completely different environment which is what allowed those good games to be made in the first place instead of new games being made, it shows the state of the game industry but those same cum guzzlers asking for remakes won't admit it.

No, I get it entirely. The gamebooks with leftist propaganda just have shit writers and most of the content is trash you really can't use in campaigns because none of it is open ended at all, to allow for plot shit.

Saying shit like "You can't do this" is the anti-thesis to tabletop RPGs. Saying that "You can do this thing" is merely a suggestion and good ones, like say the Spelljammer space ships, or the variety of spells and monsters are why these books are appreciated.

And the politics? I don't care for them, they're not relevant at all to a game unless the group is doing a "rebellion" or "kingdom enforcer" type of game. But those games are usually not open ended so political games don't tend to be played often in my experience.

I do understand, from a game playing standpoint most of all why politics should stay the fuck out of games. And I also understand, from a moral standpoint, why they should stay out of shit in general. They're not fun or useful in any way. They've created a situation where people are now focused on trivial bullshit.

All I just wanted to do was play games.

Different kind of implementation of politics in games, In VTM there's always the political system of the Vampires themselves, in New Vegas it has different political ideologies and their approaches to the wasteland and asks the player to choose from what one they think would work best, which isn't necessarily one they support in the real world, this VTM V5 shit is someone pushing their own political ideology into a game where it sticks out as being just that, imagine if New Vegas simply pushed Caesar's legion as being a 1 dimensional evil faction, and made the NCR ultra progressive and Mr House a cartoon villain that you could choose from the but the game would passively agressively imply you were a bigot, that's the sort of shit that nu age politics in games are, and that's why people hate them, but that's also why people love them.


Holy fuck that's cringe.

>ingame art "book"

I hate these companies and cum guzzlers that pretend digital "goods" have any worth

They could release a physical art book, but that would mean less profit.

Remember when you didn't absolutely fucking hate the idea of the games you love getting sequels? It was so long ago.


It was only somewhat EA


I'm still getting matches but I just thought it was with loyal players that remained. For real?

Every time I see shit like this, it always baffles me that this is still profitable, that there's still enough idiots buying into this crap to make it worth it in the first place.

Because my line of thinking is "I could buy the base game, but then it doesn't bring all that cool shit. But I'm not going to pay a small fortune to get the complete stuff either. Guess I'll pirate it then".

And a few years later, when the game has dropped the price or is on sale I'll say "Wow, that game is only 15$ now? Maybe let's buy it now and- Wait, this isn't the special edition, it's just the base game. I'd spend as much cash getting the complete deal as the base game used to cost, so I guess I'll skip it too"

It's bullshit. Pirates always get a better deal since you just get the best version with no hassle and don't feel like a chump that's missing out or a dumbass that paid extra for useless crap. You can't possibly feel like your money was well spent regardless of what you bought if you actually spent money on it.

Old VTM was degenerate, but more like the way old /b/ was degenerate, in a wildly off the wall gives-no-fucks gross, pornographic and hilarious kind of way. There was no pearl clutching or pronouns checking. Seeing what it's become over the years has been demoralizing. This sequel existing with the current state of the lore of is an abomination. Like watching someone exhume the corpse of your grandmother and fucking it on livestream.

I also don't believe they'll be able to truly address nearly the same kinds of points that VTM:B did, as after all, when you go deeply enough into the classic lore, it's extremely heavy in the wrongthink territory. We're probably going to see a 'we the multicultural disenfranchised thinbloods against the evil blood capitalist white vampire KKK clans' with the usual references and brainwash-of-the-day included.
