    Bloodlines with community patches is one of my favorite game of all times. Still every few years I play it again from start to end.

    This makes me so very excited. I hope they keep this in the spirit of original instead of biowaring it. Mass effect&dragon age series have become a joke to me after rpg elements were butchered.

    I like this patch with the optional plus mode:
    https://www.moddb.com/mods/vtmb-unofficial-patch


    Standard mode is more faithful to original vision of the game but I feel for me the plus mode is better. Some people play first in standard mode and then second play through in plus mode. If you intend to play only once I would go with plus mode and disregard the purists.

    Thanks.

    Does cheat engine also work ? :p I'm usually not a purist when it comes to developers telling me how I should play their game.

    It's not very difficult game. It's more in the story and the way you want to play story out. To me maxing out the speed of character always felt like legal cheat code as it let's you do super duper things. Similarly plus mode is kind of a cheat as one can do more side missions and use the extra xp making player quite strong.

    I guess one can make it difficult by doing something like playing as nosferatu. I was never brave enough to do that.

    Mm.. yeah I was reading one review that said something about choosing nosferatu made you super ugly and that impacted a lot of things. :lol:

    Cheat engine works but you don't need it, plenty of codes and a command line to enter 'em in. You can adjust your stats, make yourself invincible, etc. Quite a few modifiable bits for the more discriminating gamer.

    One of the very best games ever! Came out buggy as hell but great, the developers abandoned it, and the community fixed the HELL out of it over a number of years and it's still a fantastic game to play!

    Fantastic game, highly recommended. I always keep a copy on my HDD.

    Nosferatu wasn't too hard after you got invisibility tricks etc. Besides who wants to talk to cattle anyways..

    I haven't played it in years, think I'll download the latest patch and give her a go! Even my rig should be able to run it, and it was the story and characters that made the game much more than the graphics/eye-candy.

    That and how open world and RPG it was, soooo good! :D

    wish it was a new Vampire: The Masquerade Redemption! That would touch a nerve in my case, quite deeply.

    So many good memories of that game. The love story of the game, the characters, the countless hours I spent playing it, even online --you could be the master in the game, for instance.
    The old man spitting tobacco wipes... At the beginning of the game.... That unforgettable game left a mark in me.
