About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Players begin their journey into darkness by choosing to play as any of seven different vampire clans. Each clan in the game offers a distinctive set of skills, traits and abilities including: supernatural speed, stealth, invisibility, mind control, inhuman strength, combat, and stamina, each of which will be further refined as players progress through the game. Players will earn and apply experience points to increase their powers and skills, allowing them to create their ultimate creature of the night, from stealthy hunter to seductive charmer to a feral, brutal killing machine.

Developed by Troika Games, the famous pencil and paper role-playing game flourishes on the PC as gamers become creatures of the night, wandering the dark and gritty vampire world of modern day L.A. while a mysterious plot reveals itself. Vampire: The Masquerade -- Bloodlines is currently available for the PC at a suggested retail price of $49.99 and has been rated "M" (Mature -- Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, Strong Language) by the ESRB.

"Powered by Source -- Valve's next-generation engine technology, Vampire: The Masquerade -- Bloodlines delivers the most authentic White Wolf World of Darkness experience yet," states Kathy Vrabeck, President, Activision Publishing. "Bloodlines has everything fans expect from a true RPG -- deep storyline, character development and interaction, exploration, multiple solutions to quests -- combined with all the benefits of a next-gen first-person action game, including beautiful graphics, fast-action and first-person immersion."

An all-new RPG adventure, Vampire: The Masquerade -- Bloodlines is driven by a devious and intriguing storyline. Players choose from one of the seven clans of the Camarilla, and then begin their plunge into the undying vampire world of modern day L.A. as a newly sired creature of the night. There, gamers must utilize their clan's individual strengths throughout a variety of quests, eventually leading to one of several different endings. It will take a vicious array of 12 vampire disciplines -- including supernatural speed, invisibility and mind control -- and a healthy penchant for blood for gamers to survive as they interact with other characters, decide with whom to ally themselves, and ascend the ranks of vampire society to become the most powerful Kindred in the city.
