It may be a bit of a stretch, but I just realized this when playing Alone in the Dark 3 again recently. In the first AitD, there’s a hallway with 4 doors, and the floor is weak. If you walk over it, you fall to your death.
In AitD3, there’s a hallway with 3 doors, and the floor is busted. If you step into the hole, you fall to your death (despite it being like a 10-15 foot fall into the room below).
I’m wondering if maybe this hallway was a throwback to the one in the first game now. Who knows!
Scrooge McDuck makes his choice.
This is a perfect example of what makes Don Rosa’s Scrooge stories so special, and why I prefer his work over even that of Carl Barks’. That part where Scrooge kicks everyone out, then thinks about everything he used to have, gets me every time. There’s another scene earlier on when his sisters are ashamed of what he’s become after something he does in Africa, and he runs out to try and make things right, only for things to get much worse, with no resolution to the problem he was going to fix.
Don takes the character to another level. I can’t wait for the hardcover collections to come out, even as I’m going back and ordering the individual issues right now!
I always see this quote of Annie floating around my dash and remember how perfectly she was portrayed in The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck. “Trick shot” my ass…
