so you want my hype-level explained?
I am happy to hear a new bloodlines is made. I didn't and still do not expect a vampire game to be the next bloodlines. I can see cyberpunk 2000 being the next vtmb I am looking for. But I am not betting on it.
I won't judge THE GAME vtmb2 before I haven't played through it. But I do judge what I hear about it, and so far it doesn't sound good. Which only matters if my worst assumptions come true. If the game will be good or even a vtmb2 (which I don't think at all) I will be happy. If it's a 1 dimensional dumb political predictable shitfest this game doesnt exist in my book. vtmb will always stay the same. vtmb won't change the original.
So am I hyped. Yes I am. Do I expect a disaster? Yes. Do I expect it to be worse than vtmb? Of course! Will I play vtmb2? Of course.
