Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines for under £4!

Steam sales can be a thing of beauty, when a game you've wanted to get for years suddenly crops up on sale for the equivalent of pocket money.

In this case, for this weekend only, the critically-acclaimed RPG Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines is at 75% off. In the UK that equates to £3.74. For a game that's six years old and whose development company no longer exists, Bloodlines has rarely cropped up on Steam sales and has maintained a mid-ranking price of £14.99 for most of that time. So this price drop is great news for people who've been waiting to try the game out for a while.

There are a number of fan-made patches available for the game, though it's a bit of a minefield trying to work out which one is the best. Rock Paper Shotgun covers some of these issues here.

So have you ever played this before? I'd love to see your opinions on it. Though I don't imagine they'll be too glowing by the end (fucking fights are fucking horrible, argh). But yeah, if I hadn't ought VtM-B (in a box) all those years ago, I'd buy this now.

Suddenly I want to get into an argument with a stop sign.

One of the most atmospheric games ever made. Though, the fan patch is a must. I recommend the full expanded version.
