Bloodlines fun at GameSpot

GameSpot has a preview of Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines, which covers Chinatown as well as some aspects of the gameplay. Here's a bit on Chinatown:
In the Chinatown hub, you'll meet Ming Xiao, head of the Kwei-Jin, or the Eastern vampires in White Wolf's universe. The Kwei-Jin are different from Western vampires in that they don't feed on blood but rather on chi, the life force contained in all things. They also view their vampiric nature as a sort of Zen enlightenment rather than as a curse, like Western vampires. As a result, Ming Xiao's approach to your character in conversation can be haughty, depending on your responses to her baiting. Boyarsky explained to us that your character's responses will be based on his or her abilities and the type of vampire he or she is.
Western vampires view vampirism as a curse? How very GOTHY!
