Yea, that’s the quote I was thinking of. I’m not sure why people keep saying it was removed.
Yeah i thought this was the part they were refering to. It’s where it has always been =)
There was a lot of feedback / complaints in the SWL beta forums about the missing portion of the opening dream sequence, but the devs didn’t change it back to the TSW version.
The reason for cutting the dream sequence seems to be a feeling by the suits that the opening cut scenes go on ‘too long’ before a new player gets into ‘the action’. I recall hearing this in an interview somewhere.
Since we’re having this conversation about Ricky Pagan, if you’ve not seen the movie Wild Zero, you really should. It’s a great, fun movie where a lot of the references in that part of Kaiden come from.
Going to second the Wild Zero recommend; it’s a fun movie! Just be careful if you decide to play the drinking game!
The part where the operator and Umbra meet in the “spirit world” or whatever that place was pulled at my heart strings.
Selective memory is a terrible thing. Ricky follows that up by saying that “everyone’s bits are beautiful” and clarifies that his issue with her was because of the “purple tattoo” on her thigh (i.e. her allegiance to the Phoenicians).
(Though she keeps referring to them as ‘her employers’, so the relationship might not be as cut and dried…)
