He meant it's not in the game that there was the idea of Lara and Sam kissing, it was in the comics.
If I'm not wrong, the comics was submitted with the kiss and they make them take it out (to keep Lara's sexuality a mystery for fans I guess)

I think it's good that they removed this. TR2013 had a lot of dead air in between segments, the emotional pacing of the campaign was too uneven for this scene to feel adequate.

I can easily see why they ditched that short flashback scene. It's very short, devoid of any proper gameplay and doesn't add anything. It would've made sense if it was longer and if we would've been able to play the whole "sinking ship" segment, but if these few seconds are all we would've gotten, then I don't think that we miss out on anything important. Although I have to say that I love that sepia filter!

How about dual pistols ?
Was it going to be an unlockable weapon when you finish the game or not ?

Asking this since TR 2013 was the only one in the reboot trilogy where Lara actually has an animation of firing dual pistols.

A while ago someone posted an excerpt from a TR2013 design document on Twitter (I think that he deleted it sometime ago since I can't find it anymore) which says that Lara was supposed to have dual pistols after Roth's death, meaning she wouldn't have given one of the pistols to Sam. That would've been a good moment in the game for that, especially because the player still would've had some time before the end to play around with the dual pistols.

Edit:
I saved the picture. Ignore the red circles, I added them to showcase that Crystal themselves once thought that the bow was primitive instead of "iconic".

Great. Is there any way to read the whole game design document ?

I remember playing for the first time and i was sure we will get the duals at that point. And i was dissapointed. It's logical. Maybe they wasn't able to optimize it with the gameplay.
