    So, has anybody else noticed that the powers listed for each discipline are called "Active" abilities? This has me hoping that we might also see some Passive abilities at some point in the game.

    Unfortunately, I'm also nervous that said passives will be these vague "power ups" of the Active abilities.

The whole reason he starts gathering protection (I'm assuming ghouls?) is because he wanted to be treated with some respect for once.
    Mind you, Kindred are assholes in general.

    Slugg may not be THAT differently treated.

    If Outstar's speculation is correct, The Pioneers sound really interesting. I think I might side with them for a first play through option.

    While "independent" might not be a general sect, I think that rejecting the three Sects could be an option. Assuming that Sabbat is an option at all - the current books seem more "shovelhead-y" Sabbat than anything worth looking at, but the game might change that. Granted, we might also have a switch of direction with OPP and Morpheus taking over the writing now, but so far we only have Cam and Anarch as sect options, so I'm not really sure that video game will include a Sabbat option.

    * Apparently, Thin Bloods of Nosferatu lineage can be horribly deformed.
    Missed this before, but wanted to point it out. Thin Blood of any clan can manifest their parent clan's flaw, be they Tremere, Nosferatu, Malkavian, Tziminsce, whatever. In V5, you take it as a Flaw during character creation, though storywise, its basically random chance.

    * I appreciate the fact the Nosferatu want to take in a horribly disfigured Thin Blood.

    4 locations: The Bar, the Coffee Shop, the Club, and the Parking Garage.

    Now I'm curious as to who they are. Since I highly doubt the Sabbat would have the patience necessary to set up a private meeting, or try to gradually recruit you throughout the game. They seem like the kind of people who are either "join or die" mentality.

    And if the 4th faction are independent, then they wouldn't even try to recruit you at all!
    I think that faction might not be as general as the normal vampire sects. After all, being part of a sect doesn't mean you have to like everyone in that sect. Similar to the factional divide between LaCroix and Strauss.

    We may see a similar intra-camarilla divide in this game between two faction leaders. Or it might be two different factions of Anarchs. There might also be some thin-bloods trying to organize. (Which could be a particularly big thing if your character is a former thin-blood, in a "remember your roots" kind of way. (Duskborn are also more typically the type to run with the Anarchs when they get organized. So they could also be an Anarch faction.))

    FYI, the newscaster is Brian Mitsoda, the head writer of both bloodlines games. He voiced the TV news anchor from the first game.

    So, here's another video of somebody playing the game who might be better at handling the combat than the IGN video was. You guys go ahead and decide!

    Hey, if they're shooting at me with assault rifles and semi automatic pistols, they're an enemy just like everyone else!

    My thoughts on the 18 minute video.

    * Love they got the same newscaster for the place.

    * Nice apartment. Much nicer than the Santa Monica one.

    * I'm iffy about the first person view. I want to see my Malkavian's pimp outfit.

    * The bad dancing is back!

    * I hope they get Lacuna Coil and Halestorm for the music.

    * I love the cell shading art as it will probably age much better than CGI. Like Borderlands it nicely stays cartoonish as well as sexy.

    * I love the sexy Tremere model even if she's flirting a bit too hard for no flirtation back.

    * I think jumping off the side of a building should be a Masquerade violation.

    * I appreciate the fact the Nosferatu want to take in a horribly disfigured Thin Blood.

    * I'm not overwhelmed so far with the combat as I don't actually give a shit about combat in this game. No one played V:TM:B for its fighting.

    * The fighting in the game looks a lot like Dishonored and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Except people already tried to do that with DARK and I'm literally the only person on the planet who played that crappy game.

    * I like the fact that we're getting options for Intimidation, Persuasion, Humanity, and other options. We're learning from Fallout 4.

    * I feel like Deadpool in the, "Is it more sexist or not sexist?" scene given I feel bad for beating to death realistic women NPCs with pipes. Way more than I do with dudes.

    * We have options on betraying on our backers in multiple ways as well as non-violent ways of resolving the conflict.

    She mentioned "the Pyramid" when talking about her organization, and wears something mimicking an alchemical symbol. House Carnae is more neo-pagan and rejects the Pyramid. So, I kind of doubt it.

    Though, there seems to be some voice versus text differences there - the actual text said "my organization" while the voice said "the Pyramid." So, it could have been a mistake. And not like the necklace is any strong indication of anything. She just doesn't give a Carnae vibe at all to me.

    The YouTuber Outstar, who used to work in the videogame industry, said this was likely a test build where they just gave it a bunch of powers so they could show things off. It wasn't indicative of a normal character. I think it's important to keep in mind that it did say Pre-Alpha so a lot is going to be mishmashed a bit and things will likely change a great deal by release.
