So I haven't played the "sub" versions of MGS2 or 3. However I do remember in the original Snake Eater that if you saved while you were in prison quit and then reloaded you were were thrown into a dream sequence where you were killing vampires. After the dream was over Snake would wake up. If you called Paramedic she'd make fun of you for being scared of Dracula and if you called Sigint he would tell you about his dream where everyone was being attacked by a shit tank and turning into shit.

Here it is if you have no idea what I'm talking about.

WHY WAS THIS NOT INCLUDED!? Was it not in the Subsistence version of the game or did they decide not to carry it over into the HD version? What happened?

Yeah there were a few little things like that that they took out of the game. I think there were a few minor things altered in MGS2 as well not sure.

I remember in MGS2 if that one dude pissed on your head the Colonel and Rose would laugh at you but I didn't find it in the HD collection.

That's still there. They took out the skateboarding demo however, probably because the game it was demoing came out like 10 years ago.

Technical or legal issue? Idk why they would since it was totally a cool and funny moment and taking it out makes the experience less cool.

The conversation wouldn't activate for me for some reason.

@SethPhotopoulos: You need to call the colonel yourself, he doesn't call you.

Yeah. All he did was tell me I should go. Maybe I timed it wrong or something.

:( That dream sequence was so cool. Hell it could have been a decent game by itself. In fact, wasn't it a demo for an aborted action game? If that is the case, my guess would be that it was legal issues.

I don't know. It was supposed to be a Konami game and Konami published the HD collection. I'm no lawyer though.
