Wow I'm so tired I literally forgot about all this lmao you're right

It's true unfortunately. But I think this "I see you" was so much better than any of her self-talk we've heard her speak in the patched version.

The lighthearted dialogue and moments would be so much better if the game wasn't so over the top and graphic. Her saying "I see you" while climbing through a claustrophobic space full of blood and gore makes her sound like a maniac. They should really tone everything down next time.

I know this. I wouldn't have pointed it out if I didn't think the audio wasn't there. Yes, the visuals are different.

Right? She doesn't sound psycho to me, it just adds more depth into her character imo. She genuinely sounded ready!

Good riddance. She talks just about enough to herself. We already know by this time how to execute a stealth kill more than enough. She's better off silent. No need for little pep talks.
But this isn't like all of the other prep talks.. This is something a person that's excited would say in this scenario! I do agree that all of the other prep talks like "over there" or "I can climb through there" are excessive and unneeded, but this kind is more than welcome in my book!

well, Lara needs some self-talk to comfort herself. SHe has been mentally unstable since the start of Shadow. I also need to comfort myself when she speaks Her voice is so beautiful! it is optional for me

I feel the same, I don't want them to eliminate ALL side talk, but just the redundant ones.

I was clarifying your point to Kenny, not you.

Oh ok sorry. I thought everyone knew they left only the audio in the patched version.

Yeah, when you said that the whole cut scene wasn't in the game, that includes the dialogue, so I figured that would cause some confusion.
