I'm having the same issue on the PS3 downloaded version. I patched to 1.01 before I started the game. The problem happens in all of my checkpoint saves as well. I never got a cut scene with the Earl of Winnipeg, and everytime I talk to him I get "Earl of Winnipeg: With Dire Bear Pelts, I can make myself a nice Dire Robe. You know what a Dire Robe is, right?"
