That seems like Swedish or something, not German. And anyway, it should be "Ich bin Berliner!" if you're talking about being a person of Berlin. Otherwise you're saying something completely different. ;)

Nah, "Ich bin Berliner" and "Ich bin ein Berliner" both work equally well for "I'm hailing from Berlin". The former helps avoid ambiguity with the pastry, but frankly no one's ever truly stumped by that in reality.

As for "Ick bin een Berliner", that's an attempt at a phonetic transcription of the regional dialect around these parts (or "Mundart" to use a colorful German word that roughly translates to "way of the mouth"). Most Berliners of my generation don't actually lay it on that thickly anymore tho.

And hey, that's all totally relevant for Shadowrun Returns! I'd love to see the Berlin expansion add some local flair, globalization or not. The first screenshot they showed was of a location seemingly inspired by Berlin's Naturkundemuseum with its standing expo of dinosaur skeletons, that was a nice start.
