anyone else psyched for alice: madness returns?? the first game (american mcgee's alice) was one of my favorites because of the incredibly deep psychological storyline and the amazing imagery...

incase you havn't heard EA held a showcase for 6 new games and american mcgee officially announed Alice: madness returns, showed sme screenshots, and showed a short teaser

(warning: teaser might be disturbing for some people) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhBRSfCkDxY

  • I like Ed Wood, haven't seen Big Fish, and Mars Attacks! has its good points though I wouldn't see it again. I like Nightmare Before Christmas, but not really for the same reasons anyone else does. Maybe that's just an excuse. Also I love claymation, but that by no means was able to save Corpse Bride from my ire, so I dunno. And I find PeeWee obnoxious.

  • @DoctorCello said: Have you ever seen Ed Wood or Big Fish? Those films are a little less stereotypically Tim Burton-y, but they're some of his better films, I think.

    Aaaanyway, yeah. Having never played Alice myself, I can't really comment all that much, I guess, but it always looked like one of the better attempts at grimdarking a children's story to me. Hopefully with this sequel, the first one will get re-released too on Steam or something so I can give it a shot.

    i'm personally wishing for an updated version of american mcgee's alice to be released before alice: madness returns... not gonna happen probibly,but a guy can dream cant he =D

  • I still gotta play the first one. It looked so much fun when I was watching my friends play it...

  • I loved the original! It was amazing what a beautiful scenery and great atmosphere they were able to create with that one. The gameplay itself was a bit tedious, but Wonderland was lively enough to keep it entertaining. I play games like Tomb Raider and Beyond Good And Evil mainly for atmosphere too, so I had no problem with this one.

    I do think the perverted Wonderland theme is getting rather worn out. The aforementioned Tim Burton film was based on the same principle (and apparently sucked, though I haven't seen it yet) and Disney has also released a game based on the movie... so although I liked the original, I'm not sure if this sequel is going to be inspired enough to do its predecessor justice. But I'll certainly keep my fingers crossed!

    (By the way, little known fact: there was talk of creating a movie based on the game after its success, but that never got made, and probably now never will be, seeing as how Disney did it, and failed horribly.)

    Incidentally, Nightmare Before Christmas wasn't actually directed by Tim Burton - it was Henry Selick, who went on to direct James and the Giant Peach along with Coraline. Also, neither films were animated in claymation, for none of it was animated in clay or plasticine; the proper term would be 'stop motion.'

    YEEEEEEEEEAAAAAH NITPICKING

    Rather Dashing confirmed for junkie, still hates his country :p

  • I'll be playing this, loved the first one! Hopefully it'll be on a console rather than PC though, always found the controls a bit awkward :s

    it has been confirmed that it will be released for PC, xbox360 and ps3

  • Played and loved the first one, so I will defiantly get this one.
