Bloodlines preview marathon continues

Another Bloodlines preview, courtesy of IGN. I don't read these previews anymore, but since we are apparently trying to collect them all, that's my contribution.
But there's also humor amid the grimness, in Boyarsky and Co.'s patented Fallout style. In addition to the main character's tendency towards wry sarcasm, his skills may give him additional dialogue options marked by color coding. You may be able to shake down a bystander for his heirloom watch, or convince someone else they've been fired from their job, convince a thug that you're just coming by for a chat, panhandle, or generally insult everyone you encounter. Or you can be the boring good guy, filling in the gaps Quantum Leap-style, stepping in to help someone when no one else seems to care.
Still, a Masquerade game developed by Troika and rendering with the Source engine pretty much sells itself.
I hope so. Troika can use a break.
