He's so great, boss! Jason Carl does a really good job portraying him in s2 of LA by Night.

Yes, that would be great. Gary is the best

Great list, man, and lovely usage of L.A. By Night footage. I, too, crave playing as Lasombra. Fingers crossed that the game is good and sells well, because if it does, it's plausible that there might be White Wolf support behind having the clan in the game as a free DLC to encourage sales of Chicago By Night rulebooks.

I hadn't thought of it that way! Even if it weren't free, I'd pay to play Lasombra. Honestly, the game is such a dream come true for me that I just want them to be as successful as possible so we can have more. I can wait for my hardcover Chicago by Night preorder to come in. Soon now, I think?

The most feasible thing I believe we could ask for is in regards to the ghouls. Lots of potential with those ones.

Someone from Paradox saw my video and messaged me on Discord. She said I'd be happy to know they're already working on most of what I brought up. She didn't specify. I didn't press.

Agree about the ghouls though. Feel like the addict aspect is hard for devs to pass up using for levity and comic relief. Even in "What We Do in the Shadows," ghouls are almost always a punchline about indentured servitude. But there is a lot of potential. Ib in LA by Night seemed like a pretty capable ghoul. I'm super excited.

Ib ?

Son, in this forum. HEATHER IS QUEEN.

(In my mind at least).

That's awesome!!! You know what they could do that would be super low-budget but could be great if well-written and with some voiced follow-ups? Missions to send your ghouls on regularly and you pick the best-suited ghoul for the job. Kinda like in Dragon Age Inquisition or Van Hellsing.

And Highwayman, Ib is an awesome ghoul chick in L.A. By Night. You can watch it on YouTube.

@Highwayman667 I'll concede that Heather has her Queenly moments. Any woman who buys me body armor of her own volition is probably someone special. Someone at Troika must have thought so too since I can't think of anyone else beside the player character that gets to change outfits. She's only really safe if you play Nosferatu. Otherwise you have to let her go before "Hell at the Hallowbrook Hotel." Have you ever tried to turn her using the Companion Mod?

@DarkProphet Yeah, they have follower missions like that in lots of MMORPGs too: Secret World, WoW, . . . That could be cool. Sometimes I get anxiety making sure my uptime on all of those is always going. Some people turn it into post-game grinding mini-game, but they had some cool integrations with mobile. Yeah, Ib is Fiorenza's ghoul rented out to Victor as a helper-spy. She's like a super agent with a touch of suicidal depression. Usually, Jason plays her, but there are a couple of episodes where they bring in a n actress to portray her. I don't think Heather would want to fight her.

I haven't yet, I generally stay away from mods but I might try that one someday =D

I hear ya. I'm pretty much a purist, myself. The only mods like tend to like that change the game play/stuff in games are ones that put in cut content that's good, and ones that fix what I find to be terrible/miserable in-game systems. For instance, I despised Oblivions's leveling system, so I got a mod for it.

IDK I legit have more fun with the mods... especially Clan Quest and such. And I love different textures and shit like that. Plus I'm always game for new reskins of characters. But that's just me... heh...

Anyways...

Great video! I don't really have much of a wishlist for it myself, other than no microtransactions or lootboxes/"surprise mechanics" or any of that predatory [jimsterling]tRiPLe AaA[/jimsterling] bullshit. I'm not paying $90 US for the "privilege" of spending even more money; I'm paying $90 US for a fully finished, already fun-to-play game.

Also, no crunch time. I'd rather the release date be pushed back multiple times than the developers be forced to rush things and put out an inevitably inferior product. I can wait for a superior VTMB2, personally. It doesn't have to come out in March 2020. Shit I could wait until 2021 if they need that much extra time to make sure it's perfect.

I think almost every game will have some level of crunch time as you want to put out the best product possible, and squuezing in every bit of work you can is too tempting, even at the last minute.

However, I do agree I'd rather wait a bit longer for a superior product.
