Thanks. I've been waiting for a good deal on this. I didn't want to buy the one on steam.

if anyone is looking for a good time with this game, try using a Malkavian. You can talk to TVs, Stop Signs, etc...

for those who have finished it, how long is this game? and do you move out of the downtown hub at some point? seems like a pretty small area.

I'm not feeling the Malkavian. I answered the questions and that's what it gave me, but I may re-roll my character.

When I beat it years ago it took about 30 hrs to finish (lol?). I thought it dragged at the end, at about the 25 hr mark I wanted it to end. Really great game anyways though.

Yup. Great game. Got a bit of the Deus Ex vibe to it.

I have yet to play through it again as a Malkavian. Heard it's pretty wacky (in a good way).

I thought getting to the Nosferatu in the sewers dragged on longer than I would have liked, but I've faced far more tedious levels in other games before. ^_^

Love this game!

All things considered, I'd rather have the Steam version if only for the ease of Steam, but for you luddites, find some filler and get your disc copies.

I take a bit of offense to that. There are plenty of reasons to prefer/want/need a physical disc not just a luddite-like hate of technology.

I'm in for $10 though.

Thanks OP! Picked this up with a 4-pack of Senseo coffee pods to get free shipping.

I remember playing this for a brief period when it first came out. Definitely need to try it again with my upgraded system. I recall it not running as well as HL2 on my previous computer.

I can't decide which race to be, i keep trying em all out, but I can't decide which would be the most fun, since I dont know if I would be playing through this game more then once.
Any suggestions?

I've only played as one race so far, the Toreador. I'm really enjoying it though, I guess the only bad thing I would have to say about the class is that humanity loss is doubled for any violations (killing innocents, etc). Of course, humanity gain is doubled too, so it's not too bad.

If I remember right, Vampire runs on a beta version of the HL2 engine, and was never upgraded to the more polished, final version.

Yeah, if you can go with the discs for the same price, I'd go that route too. Besides, you should be able to use the CD key and link it to Steam if you want to download it. Best of both worlds!


According to this link: http://support.steam..._faqid=68#which

Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines is not on the allowed list of retail games that you can add to steam using only the CD key.

Am I missing something?

Edit: Price on amazon.com showing up as $19.99 for me now.

No, you're not missing anything. I just assumed you could d/l the game through Steam with discs' CD key, but I was wrong apparently. My apologies. >_<

Malkavian. your character is freaking nuts and your dialog options reflect that.

It did indeed go back up to $20. I'm disappointed. I was very interested in this game when it was new but after reading reviews that said it was so buggy, I didn't really pay attention much. That and I buy PC games but yet rarely play games on the PC.

Malk if you wanna be crazy. Toreador if you just wanna be the straight man helping folk in trouble.

Since Malkavian's have an alternate set of dialog for the entire game, I think it's more fun to play one of the more standard clans, such as Ventrue, Toreador, or like, before playing the crazies.
