The "Vampire: the Masquerade" franchise has had several video game adaptations, spanning multiple different genres and formats. Many of the newer titles, like "Blood Hunt," are more action-oriented, while "Swansong" promises to focus more on RPG elements and "Coteries of New York" is a straight-up visual novel. Each has had its own strengths and weaknesses, but few have lived up to the heights of "Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines." This first-person action RPG was developed by Troika Games back in 2004 and is considered by many to be the best vampire video game of all time. Its exceptional writing and choice-based narrative format gave it a high degree of replayability that was rare at the time of its release. It didn't sell very well at launch, however, and Troika Games was shut down by Activision soon after.
Paradox Interactive has addressed the Stellaris bugs following the release of its Overlord expansion, saying it was due to rushed features. In a new forum post detailing the newest hotfix that will be introduced to Stellaris, game director Stephen Muray shared the details and addressed the reasons for why the update is coming (via, PC GamesN).
