I never imagined they'd actually make a sequel to Bloodlines. I am giddy to the nth degree.

Bloodlines is my favoriye rpg videogame ever. It has a spcial place in my heart. I do at least one run every year.
Never i wkuldve believed it was going to come back.
Now im curious about the plot, but im sure its not going to have ties with the first and will move in the gehennaless setting of the new vtm edition.
2020 cant come soon enough.

Sure wished they'd picked a different city then Seattle, though.  I hate that place (I live in eastern WA so our "colonial lords" aren't well respected :) ).  Guess the Prince will HAVE to be a Toreador.

I am really happy that we have a new entry in the bloodline series!  :cometome:
I hope the game manages to capture the same mood and tone of the original
Not going to lie I am somewhat perturbed by some things said in interviews such as not wanting to "punch down" in a world of darkness game. But with the original writers hopefully, I will be proven wrong.

Yeah, same here. The first game had some tongue-in-cheek real-world political stuff, but it never hurt the final product...like the "one time I voted Republican" answer to Venus about if you ever did anything awful, and the whole back-and-forth political ads on the radio where the Republican and Democratic candidates' campaigns are accusing each other's candidates of being a pedophile and a hit-and-run driver, etc. Stuff like that was a teensy part of the game.

However, you're right that the interviews seem to make it sound like they're making this game current-real-world-politics-focused, which is disconcerting. For example, this interview states they are "taking some political stances on what we think are right and wrong.": https://www.vg247.com/2019/03/21/vampire-the-masquerade-bloodlines-2-political-character-creator/

That's pretty damned limiting in an RPG where you're supposed to be able to murder humans, enslave them to your blood, lie, steal, frame, sabotage, etc.

Here's another interview where they say they talk about mental illness representation: http://www.pushsquare.com/news/2019/03/vampire_the_masquerade_-_bloodlines_2_takes_a_firm_political_stance_lgbt_and_mental_illness_representation

And when they say "mental illness representation," all I can hear is "we're gonna suck the fun right out of Malkavians because we're stupid enough to think that people actually believe that Malkavians are supposed to be a realistic portrayal of the mentally ill."

Funny how that works - Troika was more or less LA based.
