Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines - If the rumors and speculation are to be believed, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines has been ready to ship for at least 7 months. Why the hold-up? Again, rumor has it that because Bloodlines is using Valve's Source engine "the same game engine technology used
to power Half-Life 2" there was an agreement that Half-Life 2 would ship before Bloodlines.
Of course, there was that whole electronic break-in at the Valve offices about this time last year, which sent a firm release date for the much-anticipated Half-Life 2 into the toilet. It was anyone's guess as to when it would ship. There are clues that indicate Half-Life 2 will ship soon and when it does expect Bloodlines to quickly hit the shelves. It can't come soon enough for fans of the White Wolf property.
