Outa curiousity can you get grenades?
Nope. Although I have been hit by a couple, I think.
As an expansion pack they'd be cool though.
It can be done, but requires
-A: hacking your characther
-B: loosing one of your skills to aquire throwing
I remember also reading not all grenade graphics were set up.
sigh, PC Gamer has pushed me too far. First, they completely trash Vampire in their review of it. Then, for best roleplaying game of the year... they give it to Sacred. Sacred you may ask? For the uninitiated, its a half assed rip off of Diablo. Sigh, I tried to like their magazine but I think our opinions have veered just a wee too far apart/
http://www.gamespot.com/pc/rpg/sacred/index.html. If you take a look at the screenshots you can see the obvious diablo influences. The game set out from the start to simply advance diablo's gameplay by "adding horses." But hey! Since it lacked bugs upon its release, it was declared the superior to Vampire :-\. I guess thats the only determining factor in awards nowadays .[/quote]
from Gamespots review...
No no, i know the game, that`s why i was surprised, it sort of...sucks badly...
Ah, my mistake... though further investigation of the magazine led me to discover it also won "Worst Intro Movie" Here's the full thing there:
Sigh, I really had faith in this magazine for a while too. Apologies for posting a bunch though... toning it down as I hit the textbooks .
PC Gamer has been in a steady decline since PC Accelerator was shut down by their parent company. Since then they've been slipping and slipping into higher levels of stupidity and fanboydom.
The only good thing I can say about PC Gamer now, is that they don't kiss ass in their reviews for the games which have bought advertisement space.
I lost all hope in PC Gamer when they gave the Axis & Allies RTS a 34%. "This isn't an Axis & Allies game." No shit, Sherlock. Maybe if your lazy ass had been following the project, or read ANY kind of advertisement you'd know that it would have been an RTS to begin with.
I swear to God, its like they're not even trying anymore. When Chuck Fatass closed his Bloodlines review with "Don't come expecting Half-Life 3," I cringed from stupid.
The game is fun. I'd almost forgotten.
Also: reference to Pixies as Malkavian! When discussing LaCroix with Damsel, you can say "There were rumors he was into field hockey players."
Chuck is more a Fps and Adv game player, not a rpg type. They gave the wrong person to review the game.
BEFORE YOU JUDGE THE GAME OR PLAY THE GAME; patch the game with the fan made patch, I promise it will fix EVERY problem you've ever had. Just look for it on the web. Type: Fan made patch + Vampire blood lines.
Anyways, its a fucking great game. I got to the last part, and I had to format my comp and lost my save. So I'm pissed; I did side with the anarchs and almost got to the end in China Town. Oh well I already knew what was going to happen; my teacher told me.
Unfortunately, it's the job of developer to fix the bugs, not fans....
Did Troika somehow imply that this game was made for action fans without anyone knowing?
The game ha snow 3 kind of patches.
- The official (mandatory)
- The Unofficial 3.7
- The True Vampire
Which should I use, True or Unnofficial?
It's a matter of personal choice, but I believe Troika left the game a little unbalanced. That said, I'd go with the unofficial patch, as it tries to fix and balance the game. The True patch only fixes the bugs within the game, so you may play it the way Troika supposedly intended it to be played.
I have only played the unofficial patch (but a lot earlier version of it), so my choice is a bit biased.
The unofficial patch is now up to 3.9, it also includes a basic version that just fixes bugs and broken quests etc.
I do wish the game was a little less linear. I want to play again but I'm tired of doing the first area of the game again.
The game has a great story though. Events with the anarchs and certain werewolfs really had me on the edge of my seat.
Play as Malkavian or Nosferatu if you haven't allready, they really play different in some ways
True, but since Troika were laid off it's kind of beyond their ability nowadays.
Compare that to Bethesda who to this day never patched some of Morrowind and Oblivion's glaring bugs despite still going strong.
