There’s No Opening Cutscene In Tomb Raider: Legend Because Somebody Forget To Put It In

It’s the sort of thing that sounds way too dumb to have actually happened in real life, and yet here it is: the genuine reason that there’s no opening cut scene in Tomb Raider: Legend is because one of the programmers forget to insert the coding into the final build. Because Eidos still wanted to ship the game out on time, though, they decided to just leave it how it was. Without a cutscene. And it’s never been restored or anything.

I suppose it doesn’t make that much of a difference, though it’s sort of strange being plunged right into the game without any explanation. Kind of like the way games used to work, don’t you think? Which is maybe what Eidos were planning all along. Right, Eidos? Hello? Anyway, what we really want to know is how much trouble Mr. Cutscene Forgetter got in when everybody figured out that this has happened. Answers on a postcard, please.
