    They could quite easily make an RPG out of each of the franchises. A mummy RPG would be pretty different.

    I always had too eco-SJW wibes from Werewolf, defending Gaia and all that jazz. I guess it's been put together slightly better in the new world of darkness, not sure though.

    Now that Paradox has the license, why not make a vampire game in the same vein as Crusader Kings? Except no aging problems.

    I know nWoD Changeling is considered unanimous improved over the oWoD version, but yeah. Old Werewolf was just silly 90s FIGHT DA MAN, SAVE DA NATURE deal, comically evil corporation looking to pollute the planet included. It's kinda amusing that new Werewolf has you playing as the "bad guys" as far as werewolf perspective goes because your ancestors committed patricide, even if it was out of perfectly logical reasons at the time, while the Pure aka your main werewolf brothers antagonists who opted not to murder their old man, are essentially in the right. They're just massive dicks about it and care even less about humans.

    Isn't that in nWoD werewolves once ruled over humans and now they don't. And players play the ones that don't care about old way and don't consider humans as cattle ?

    To be fair, the game wouldn't actually be any worse with cover shooter mechanics :lol:

    Also, a WoD Promethean RPG would be awesome. Not that any company I know of could pull it off. One can dream though.

    Wonky Celerity physics throwing you half a mile across the map >>>>>> Cover shooting mechanics.

    No seriously, I used that shit to get past a guard in the warehouse mission undetected. Success.

    Of course it would have been fucking worse. Combat in an action game in which PC has supernatural powers is supposed to be about wading into the crowd and wrecking shit up, it's especially ill-suited for idiotic sticky cover mechanics that slow down the pace of the game.

    Vampire Bloodlines actually has a 'discrete' cover system: hilariously enough, you can use the person you're feeding on as a human shield (if he's positioned between you and the people shooting you, he will absorb the bullets).

    Right, but that's not what people think when they refer to cover shooter/popamole mechanics. I can also duck behind a desk in Duke Nukem 3D, doesn't make it a cover based shooter.

    Yeah but my point was, the gun combat is already so shit, slowing down or speeding it up wouldn't change anything. It might have made the stealth better too but that's debatable.

    In general sure, cover shooters are crap.

    If combat is shit you want it to be fast, not slower. So yes, making it cover shooter would actually make it worse.

    If they made it a remaster with modern assets but the same quests and story, id be in.

    Started the original but just never got around to finishing it.

    Whether or not you win the game... matters not. It's if you bought it.

    Well I've never found Bloodlines' combat (especially with mid-late game guns coupled with say a power like Celerity/Bullet time) to be as bad as people say but even that aside, sticky cover mechanics fall in the same group as QTEs as far as I'm concerned, consoletard shit that decrease the quality of any game as a rule with no exceptions.
