Did Gui Zhang smoke in warehouse 8?

Postby johnvivant » Sat Jun 08, 2013 6:23 pm

i just read a youtube comment saying that in the japanese version Gui Zhang would be smoking in the warehouse when you visited him, but in the western versions this was removed. to be honest i can't remember him smoking in the game at all, but its been a while since i played. can anyone confirm whether this is true or not.

i know there is an artwork of him smoking but did he do this in the game?

if anyone has any images video it would be interesting. thanks

I think it's only in the Japanese version? Not sure. Kiyuu likely knows.

If I recall if you visit him with no point he is leaning against the wall upstairs and think he was smoking and when you talk to him he said he doesn't have time for your bullshit.

I was trying to find what you were talking about and I randomly stumbled on the exact thing Ryudo was talking about. No cigarette, though.

He never smokes even in the Japanese version. He must have posed for the poster only. ;-)

Ha, he looks so dapper doesn't he. You have be the gawd to pull of a double breasted pin stripe suit with red tie like that.

thanks for the help in clearing that up. would have been interesting if it was true.

and maybe Lui San has a fake cigarette, since he always has the same one and no smoke ever comes from it..lol

Japan has much higher amount of smokers than in the us and western Europe. Not sure why though. Yet their life expectancy is higher. That's crazy.

This sentence shouldn't even exist. No wonder there's no full stop.
