Hi everyone. The doorbell just rang and it was the UPS guy with my Scratch's Director's Cut. I'm so glad it finally got here...I ordered it nearly two months ago and I was wondering when it would arrive! smile

Anyway, I haven't had a chance to play it yet but when I do I'll pop back in to talk about the game and how it's different from the original. I'm looking forward to seeing what new goodies they've put in!

Well please don't spend any more time writing until you've loaded and played the game. I too have been waiting for months, but mine didn't come today and I am really curious. Be sure to let us (OK, me!)know what you think.

So happy for you (all)... looks like a good one! And to think that all this time, I missed out on a good game because I judged Scratches (the original release) by its title alone... not even bothering to actually read about it. Because of the title, I simply avoided it.

Confession:
I never got Scratches because I thought it had to do with hurting cats... with the ghosts of cats who'd long ago been maltreated, then, had come back to haunt & terrorize... scratching current-day visitors. Don't like the idea of cats being vilified (even the black cat thing at Halloween)
.

Well. I know now that I should've read about the game first... not one mention of a cat. Yeah, I admit ... dumb!

The only question that remains: "Am I ready to enter Blackwood Manor?"

rotfl I love it. Really?

Confession:

I avoided Amerzone at first because I thought it had something do to with epic battles in an alternate future in the Americas.

I do --- From what is can see at first glance --- This version is Vista Ready -- Contains a New Chapter -- The Last Visit --> The Original Ending (which was not in the First Isuue)--> An eerier soundtrack and updated Graphics ---

and oh yes --- Here in FT Worth (Land of Thunderstorms) we are having one now --- how lovely --- playing Scratches by Lightening and Thunder --- wonder how long the power will last.

eek

Okay, folks (and inferno, I hope your power stays on!), I just installed the game and looked at the manual. For those of you who are undecided as to whether this director's cut version is different enough to make playing/paying again for the game worthwhile, here are some details:

1. An exclusive new chapter to the story with dramatic sequences that will stay with you forever! Six years have passed and Blackstone Manor is on the brink of being demolished; a reporter is asked to sneak inside the house and gather clues about the mystery that was never solved.....but he will find an unexpected and terrifying surprise inside!

2. Higher resolution and completely revamped graphics.

3. An alternate control system for the game--you can now control the game with fixed mouse movement if you wish.

4. Witness the shocking and never revealed before alternate ending, giving a whole new meaning to the story---but will you be able to perform all the necessary steps to trigger it?

5. Read the missing Michael's journal--Michael writes and ponders about anything of importance.

6. See the breathtaking new climatic effects.

7. Find the hidden Easter eggs--far more are included, along with an ending game score that will give you hints as to what you missed.

8. Hear the improved original soundtrack.

9. A revised script, with enhanced and more dramatic situations.

I'm very glad that I purchased this; it sounds great!! happydance wave

More later!

Ahaa! First mysterious happening..... The Front door.
it now holds a rather strange way of opening it --- beware, Marian.... eek

Click to reveal..


The key goes in a place you would not expect --- While the door moves open logically --- the hotspot --- is where you put the key

Becky, I too passed up Amerzone the first time I saw it because I thought it was a futuristic war game in a third-world country.
Then I took a closer look and read the blurbs - live and learn!

Inferno, I didn't look at your spoiler, but the front door has definitely given me pause. I have already opened it in the conventional way, so it would appear that I have overlooked something very interesting. Hmmmm....(!)
