Thinking about it, I wonder if this really is a glitch. At least under default settings, there were quite a few times where the soundtrack drowns out the dialog.
JoesGuy: Is it just me, or is there an odd glitch with this patch where the music becomes inaudible when dialogue plays. It's just dialogue, regular sound effects don't cause this to happen. It's also only present with the new patch.
It's a weird workaround, but maybe they wanted to let the plug 'n' play gamers hear the dialog. Considering the timing and the fact that the Steam update included a Linux port, it's fairly possible this was aimed at those going out and getting Steam Machines.
I wonder if there's any way to change this behavior, if it is on purpose.
