In the game of scarface they made an open world with four main hubs, connected by highways, and there was no level loadings when traveling from one to another and even when entering buildings (the only loadings where in some levels outside miami and when you call your limo to go quickly in other places not yet loaded and stuff like that). That would be cool here too.

Weren't the highways just a way to hide the loading times? No idea, since I didn't play the game, just asking (I know a lot of games that hid their loading times in elevators, for example).

Would it fit the game to have a transportation method just to tie the hubs? Maybe, but loading screens aren't all that bad (I mean Bloodlines was full of them, after all XD).

You guessed it at the first try: disguising loadings with bottlenecked designed links

If more come back, we may need a "Old School PV Circlejerk" thread in Off Topic to reminisce.

Sorry, back on topic. Some of these mofos I've known for a while and haven't seen in years, didn't mean to hijack the thread.

^^ I will not be pre ordering the game. I need to see more before I part with cash. Specs, game play. If they already have my money then they don't need to earn it :)

Yup, I'm seeing familiar faces since the other planet vampire site (IGN was it?) coming back here.

Pretty good video to counteract some of the more absurd complaints about vtmb 2


I see gehenna is almost upon us, as the elders of the forum rise from torpor once again to devour the blood of the young.

I agree that Bloodlines' loading screens weren't a problem, and I may prefer them to a transition sequence. The latter could become essentially a loading screen in which I'm obliged to pay attention, which I foresee growing tedious.
