    Yep, played it and feels like an accurate depiction of our autumns and winters tbh. Also most of our springs.
    And large parts of the summers.

    Feels alright, especially for a vampire thing. Dunno twitch chat seems to be super edgy about it but it's fine.

    Didn't saw it on twitch, only at a small streaming community (Dopefish_lives). Dunno, I might saw too little of it to get the full picture.

    Cheesy dialogue has never bothered me that much.
    What I don't like is the inconsistency in the modeling details.

    Some structures and scenes looks like a game from 2003, then we have a table in the same room that is meticulously designed.

    uwotm8, it's the usual deal

    slightly pissed that the dodge isn't exactly a blink it's made to look like so you can get cornered like a little bitch though

    Every boss fight is hit twice, dodge.
    Repeat 50+ times.

    You not having any imagination to use combat systems in a way that isn't lazy minmaxing is on you tbqh fam

    The game gives you plenty of mechanics you can use to be a baddass

    The fight with the person who beats you with a wooden cross (no spoilers here friendos) was the first time I died, and then died constantly. Otherwise combat seems to be either Stun & Bites combos, or just upgrade your bludgeon and whale on them.

    Sometimes the game is great but other times it seems boring, tepid and the combat loop gets old quick. Maybe Witcher 3 level combat, if even?

    It's definitely no VM Bloodlines, but at this stage I'll take anything.

    I mean, Bloodlines is definitely the superior game writing and setting wise, but combining those complaints and ending with "no bloodlines" is pretty amusing with how broken that game's combat and some sections of it are.

    Maybe not phrased great but my point is the game doesn't really excel at either combat or interesting setting / characters.

    VM Bloodlines is still the closest game to it as it deals with characters and themes way better even if it is janky as shit

    Two thoughts in this:

    1) This game feels to me like Detroit: Become Human. I enjoy watching the Let's Play videos, but I feel the playing the game myself would be rather boring.

    2) (In regards to Swiss' observation): from watching the above mentione vids, it seems like the intersting part of the game is supposed to be the social connections thingy, along with the fact how districts health and available stories change, if/when you kill someone. Not sure if it plays out as the developers envisioned, though.

    Don't know what you all are disappointed about. There seems to be too much combat but otherwise can't really complain.
