I kind of like how GB actively outsmarts people now. Just replaying CMI, he felt more like he lucks out at things. Not that he bumbles around that much, but that things happen to be in his favor or actually, things are a lot more in the control of the player and he ends up doing stuff that sometimes, he appears to not actually have any clue as to why he's doing it.
Also, kind of like how GB uses seduction as a completely legitimate course of action! Even on the same sex (*cough* his offer to Judge Grindstump about going over 'legal briefs' anyone?)!
