    Hey folks! There hasn't been a good Vampire video game in a long time and Troika gave us something to dig our teeth into -no pun intended but realizing it worked out pretty well :p - Fanmade patches and fixes are improving on an already fantastic game! Lets take a momment and remember times in Bloodlines that made the game so fun! No off topic posts pretty please, let this be in Bloodlines' honor! Lets go! 8)

    Giving blood to the patient in the hospital and then having her stock me later on and being my ghoul. :)

    Wow, it's been a long time since I played it, and I don't really remember anything about it, none of the good parts anyway. My main memory of it is playing while I had a fever, sweating A LOT (I normally get very nervous by FPSs, but having a fever really increased it) and then after finishing it feeling like I could slow down time outside of the game too.

    The beach hotel, (that map without enemies/hunted house feeling).

    I loved that map just for the fact that it was so well done and keeps you on your tip of the seat. Without enemies :D

    Only reason I rarely replayed the game was because I kept getting freaked out by the haunted house mission. Mind you I always seemed to be alone in my house and midnight when I would play that part, not by my choosing just unlucky I guess. I cans till remember walking down one side hearing a whisper saying I see you and then I turn around and see a black figure disappear.


    Damn you I got goosebumps now.


    My favourite part was the tests you had to go through in the tower, the guy holding up the crucifix, he looked so scared.

    My first character was Malkavian, but I didn't know at first how they worked, you know, in the head. So when the news told me they knew I commited a murder I was rather puzzled. I also spoke to a bus stop. Then I realized my vampire was quite insane.

    I still need to finish that game.

    I'm happy he did it. I'm always ready for a good Bloodlines discussion but no one ever posts here anymore without being burned at the stake for GDing.

    I agree, I think everyone secretly feels the same because I hardly got burned when I did it.

    It's been years since I last touched the game, but I still remember haunted house, Malkavian headquarters, Nosferatu graveyard and the snuff quest very dearly.Though I won't probably ever play it again. The reason is that I was severily traumatized by those sewers. Surely there were some funny lovecraftian logbooks, but honestly it was the worst, most boring and way-toooo-loooooong dungeon in the history of computer gaming and you have to consider this comes from someone who enjoyed Wizardry and the likes. It's sad because Vampire Bloodlines was otherwise such a great game.

    You can get through them in about half an hour if you know where you're going - but the trouble is having to traverse them several times to be able to know them so well in the first place. It's a fun game, and I think the recent plus patches they've been releasing for it are very nice - still I'll have to wait a while for my interest to build sufficiently for me to want to play it again as I've played it to death.

    My favourite moments were meeting Gary, seeing the murderer father in the hotel and quite a lot of the quests in Hollywood.

    You guys are awful. Now, after 4 years, I'm going to need to install Bloodlines again.

    Though I have to say, that conversation with a traffic light was pretty fun - I normally played Malkavians.

    Re:

    If you go to the far left of the hotel lobby on the ground floor, walking to the end of the corridor that runs along that wall when you turn round you'll get a nice surprise...

    The best moment I ever had with the game was when the guy in the TV suddenly started speaking to me. I was so surprised I thought I'd fallen asleep and was dreaming or something, I'd seriously not expected that at all.

    During my first play-through I screamed a rather unmanly scream at that point and started blasting wildly with the shotgun. I think I lost more ammo shooting after shadows in the hotel than I used against legitimate targets in the rest of the game.

    Oh, and you can also spot the killer in the boiler room, walking slowly towards you only to disappear around a corner.

    Personally, I found the entire setting superior to any particular level (which is probably why I didn't have too much problem with the dull grinding later on). I had this constant feeling of something creepy and terrifying that's going on just below the surface. The feeling I'm trying to get at above is best explained through comparisons. Someone already mentioned Lovecraft to which I'd like to add that my thoughts where constantly brought to Lunar Park.

    The creepy setting was probably pulled off so nicely because of the interesting side missions most of which started out fairly normal and then turned more and more horrifying as progress was made. It's been quite a while now since I last visited the game, but I remember a few particularly uncomfortable moments. The tape in Hollywood completed with the porn studious bellow the internet café and Stanley Gimble in Santa Monica, to name a few. Also the whole serial killer hunt (until you actually met him).



    And lastly: Am I the only one who has woken up sweaty in the middle of the night after hearing the words "need a fix" while dreaming?
